Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm a current student and would not recommend this school at. The academic and financial advisors do not communicate with each, and every time I called, they have a different answer to the same questions. The school policy is to contact students at least 3 weeks prior to the next class to discuss any issues with financial aid and/or loans, but my advisor and academic advisors would not call. I received an email from my financial advisor the day before Thanksgiving of 2016, notifying me of a payment issue that would hinder my next class. When I called everyone was on vacation and no one around to assist me. It is so frustrating dealing with these people. There better accredited school than the UOP. Please if you value your time and sanity, DO NOT ATTEND THIS AWFUL SCHOOL. Also, just in you're wondering why I am still there, it's because I have a few classes left to graduate, if I was not so far into the program, I would have dropped out. I am getting my Masters somewhere else.

I had brain surgery, short term memory was a major problem. With UOP I managed to get through because I had time to think about the answers.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

University of Phoenix made my return to college pleasant and stress-free. Upon enrollment, you are assigned to a team of individuals who ensure that your class schedule is manageable and allows you to learn at your own pace. The financial advisors I've had have been responsive and helped me to navigate what can sometimes be a difficult road to ensure that my student loans cover the cost of my continued education.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

My degree is in Communications with an emphasis in cultural and diversity. My current employer supports me going to school but having applied for 25 jobs there I've been turned down for all of them. Not even getting an interview. It's discouraging having been here 11 years and feeling like I went to school to make a better quality life for myself and two little ones, but I'm in no better position than I was not having my degree. I start my MBA next month and I'm praying something pays off asap. I feel like my degree is great but showing others the value in my degree and me has been tough and disappointing. My school website has employer referrals but those jobs are nothing related to my experience or aw jobs like a copy maker which makes no sense. I strongly believe in myself and know things will change. Waiting on it to happen is stressful when school starts again in the next few weeks for my MBA.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2014

This was my first experience going to college online. In the beginning I felt very overwhelmed with the amount of college work I had to complete. However, once I got going it went smoothly. I was not very impressed with my advisors. They often changed my advisors, and I was never sure who to contact. My final months earning my degree they failed to process my financial aid. This left me with a $3,000 bill. The University realized it was their mistake and cleared my bill. This impressed me the most. I have actually been considering going back to them to take a few additional courses so I can be certified for kindergarten through 12th grade.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm currently a student at University of Phoenix. I would not recommend this school to anyone I know, not anymore. The financial advisors are terrible. The instructors were good, and the reason I stay until my currently class. She graded me base on her standard and not Phoenix university's standards. There was no engagement between me and her. According the the academic advisor she doesn't have to answer to anything I post... I don't know why I'm in the class giving her my money. I'm currently a student who is looking for a different college to attend.

Degree: Marketing
Graduation Year: 2012

University of Phoenix's online degree program allowed me to purse a dream while working full time. The ease of online learning was lots of work but paid off as I achieved an education that has helped me advance in my career. I am now about to purse an education through a graduate program.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is great for the working adult who wants to achieve a higher education degree. It is not easy like many others think that have no completed it. It provides a real education with teacher's that work in the field. With that being said the conversations and the real life application is on point.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2018

Don't start asking questions about your loans and grants you will be given different information and then they give you the run around.Terrible experience trying to withdraw now and get back into traditional classes. Classes are high as well as resource fee and all instructors aren't qualified. If there are other options use them this school is terrible

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

I think University of Phoenix, is perfect for individuals who have a very busy life. Throughout the time that I was in school, I worked a full time job, tried to take care of things at my household, and was also working on becoming healthier. I was able to do all three things with no negative impact on my grades. They would contact me and make sure I was doing everything in my power to be successful throughout the program. I was inducted into an honor society based on my grade point average and my major. That was one of my proudest accomplishments to date. I'm very thankful that I decided to go back to school and pursue my degree through University of Phoenix. It is very true when they say they want to help you succeed and will be there for you every step of the way. That's one of the main reasons behind me choosing them as my Graduate School as well.
