"Please go anywhere else. The counselors are a joke and will put you in classes that you do not need or will suddenly have more classes for you to take as soon as you are about to graduate. In t experience, I was a transfer from community college and they attempted to place me in classes that I had previously earned credits for. When I made them aware of their mistake they would remove me from the class and apologize. What was the point of me sending my transcripts over from community college then? Kylie Wetsel is the worst counselor I have had so far. If you ever get her, please ask for anyone else. She communicates poorly, puts you in classes you do not need, and is essentially only there to confuse you and rob you of your money. The professors are a joke. If you have to take organic chemistry look forward to failing because that is the goal of the course. Andre is the worst professor teaching that course and looks forward to seeing you fail. Please just don’t go here. Go to any other college in Arizona."

"My freshmen year here I had terrible roommates. They were beyond trifling dirty dishes, dirty underwear left in our public living space, garbage stacked up the wall, etc. They also wouldn't arrange the room so everyone was comfortable. So i was crammed in the corner the whole semester. But that isn't the worst part; when I tried to get my room changed they gave me the options to pay more for a double, withdraw and reapply for housing but with this option i would have to pay a $400 termination fee, she also said a disability room was an option but didn’t mention that i would need a doctor’s note and would still have to receive approval from the school. Then just told me to wait until the second semester for an answer only to be told in January I couldn't move and "I should be more understanding of the other girls" when i asked could I pay the extra money to be roomed with a friend they told me no it had to be a random move and also said all the doubles were full which was clearly a lie. Also, since I was advised to wait till next semester to see whether I could move, instead of just cutting my losses and leaving the first semester I was charged over $3,000 for housing I could barely live in. I was eventually forced to withdraw from the whole University which was probably the best decision I made because now I am in a University that actually cares for their students. Some of their gen Ed classes also rubbed me the wrong way when they asked students to come up with derogatory stereotypes for Black people, Hispanic people and Asian people. This school is just a ball of confusion that should be avoided!! Plus the grad rate is really low..."

"If you're looking for professors who will strive to help you on and off campus, this is NOT the school for you. In fact, it's a complete joke. I'm honestly thinking of dropping out. They have changed curriculums 3 times since I have been here, & I am a freshman!! The professors get their information from the textbook, so you'd be better off just teaching yourself instead of worrying about their thick accents and nonchalant behavior. Honestly terrible terrible school."

"Really upset with the school and the "customer service" went there for my I9, they rejected my copy of my social security after my friend used a copy and not the original and had no problems. On top of that a girl who just gave a ride to people from where I just was and I needed a ride back in the 110 degree weather she said "it's not my job to give people a ride" after giving other's a ride. It was a bit a mile walk to my car..."

"This university is the biggest waste of money ever! Profs use Wikipedia as source material. No teaching (1/2 hour lecture, class dismissed) No tests, no homework, no cafeteria, no social life. Very much a community college experience. Expensive and complete waste of time and effort. I'm transferring and all of my roommates are transferring. I found another friend is losing her roommates to transfer also."
