"University seems to hire any (unqualified) person who applies to teach the graduate courses. Professors are rude and condescending in their communication, especially when they don't know the answer to a clarifying question, which is nearly always. Professors are just proctors for predetermined course outlines, so they actually have no idea what they are doing, or how to answer a true question or learning opportunity. My passion for psychology is now just giving way to "just finish this course so you can get the MS after your name". Sadly, now the most unmotivating experiences of my education."

"When I started this school in 2019, it was called Ashford University. Then the University of Arizona brought out the school. I think that this school is good for individuals that has the drive to teach themselves, hold themselves accountable, and understand that they will have to do work outside of the classroom to really bridge the gap between college and being able to work in their desired field. In every class you will have to do discussions, replies, and a final which could be a test, project, or paper. The professors that I had were a mixed bag just like any other university I went to. Some went above and beyond while others did the bare minimum. After a few classes, I noticed that the classes all had a very similar structure to them. This school is largely what you make of it. This school financial services representatives has been kind to me every time I called. I understood that this school was in the business of making money and I knew this school was way more expensive than going to my local state university. My tip with perspective students and current students is to keep track of their financial aid, financial aid rules, GI bill, employer grants, and other forms of payments that the students may be using. I would also recommend taking transferable classes on Sophia, and StraighterLine. To help reduce the cost and getting done with your degree sooner. Academic advisors change all the time. So I did not really develop any type of relationship with any of my advisors. This school is regionally accredited by the WASC Senior College and University Commission at the time of me writing this review. Which is fantastic for me because that is all I needed to have to enter the field of software engineer. Beware that this school may not be for you if you need to sit for licenses like teaching and accounting. A degree from UAGC has help me in my earnings because before I started going here I was making next to minimum wage in a field I did not like. Now I am a software engineer now able to fully support myself with the help of UAGC!"

"This school is a literal joke! I spent 5 weeks completing the same assignment, I didn’t learn anything useful, but the icing on the cake for me was when I got hit with a $3,000 bill for 3 pathetic classes. I immediately dropped out and now I owe the school $1,400 just because, on top of that I owe a loan that I wasn’t even aware of. That loan cost $933… I’m begging you please don’t go to this school!!!!!"

"First month in this school tried to make threats to me because they claimed I plasgised in their school. They use a soft ware that detects if you used google articles. Do not use any online resorces for your assignments unless its states you can or they will fail you and red flag you. Teachers are rude, not helpful nor do they get back with you in a timely manner. theres barely anytime off or anything to win nor do beside work, work and deal with rude lazy teachers that dont know how to dp the assignment they address. Financal department is a joke also they are not helpful nor will they give you the right intructions on how to fill out your FASA nor will they tell you a easy way to prove your identity without forking out over 25 dollars to have a piece of paper sign, stamped and delievered. no refunds they laughed thought it was comical. My student adviser been changed 3 times dont know which one to call, when you do noone answers so you have to get someone in the office to answer. They dont make education fun"

"When the name changed, from ashford university to university of arizona global campus, I thought it was kind of weird, but I still kept pushing for my degree. Then in Feb of 2022, I seen a news article, ASHFORD UNIVERSITY and navient (their loan provider) where both sues for misrepresentation, and lying about the cost of.classes and how much financial aid we was getting, Go figure. This school, no matter the name change will always be known as the school that scammed their students, and any degree that comes from their will not be respected. Who wants to admit this is where they got their degree. There where plenty of times I had to change a class because the book voucher I was supposed to recieve, for the physical books, I never got. My advisor said she didn't know how to generate them and financial aid said I wasn't eligible. But yet these classes that I need the books for, my financial aid covered materials for.the class. I had to come out of pocket for materials my financial aid already paid for. If you don't believe it, look up state of California vs. Ashford University."

"There are very few professors in the business program who do anything more than copy & paste responses and feedback. It gets old working on papers and discussion board posts, only to see a canned response from the professors, and meaningless responses from fellow students that are just trying to meet their weekly minimum requirements. The motto for the programs should be: "Don't let quality be the enemy of quantity." It is very easy to fall behind by making a real effort, and very discouraging to see your efforts met with preformulated responses. UAGC is a place to send your money and maybe get a degree if you’re part of the elite 18% who have the stomach to make it all the way through. It’s not a place to come if you want to be challenged in a meaningful way."

"What a poor excuse for higher education. From advisors, to instruction, to course setup, there are severe communication issues. I don’t have a single kind thing to say about this university, and I hope nobody makes the awful mistake to attend the online campus."

"Sorry to say in the state of Pennsylvania and many others, my degree is worthless, it is not approved by the American Psychological Association (APA). I can not find a job from this degree except for being a case worker that of which anybody can get with a common associate degree. Also, I can not even get a job working at a college as an adjunct professor!"

"I graduated from Ashford University in 2019 after 6 years of study for a Ph.D. For the most part, the instructors were well qualified and provided excellent feedback. The dissertation stage of my studies was very demanding and challenging. I gave up pretty much any spare time to write this work. I must say that my dissertation chair was absolutely phenomenal. Other than one or two poor instructors, the coursework was excellent. I especially enjoyed the on-site weekend classes and the opportunity for specialization. My degree enabled me to teach at the university level. I am very happy with the doctoral experience at what is now UAGC and certainly recommend it if you are willing to work hard and have the will and stamina to spend six years in an intense academic environment."

"What a great experience and such great professors! My best advice is to understand that you get what you give when going to school online. I was a student with a disability, and they helped me 100% of the way if I had questions or needed a leave. No, it was not easy, but to me, that's what makes it a good school! I graduated with a 3.9 GPA, and I have never been prouder of myself! Thank you to all the staff that helped along the way."

"I first graduated from Ashford University back in 2018 with my bachelors degree in accounting got a job that matched my work experience then that job sent me back to Ashford now university of Arizona global campus where I was able to receive my master's degree for free. Since I received my masters I was able to double my salary. I'm truly grateful for the experience and journey taking courses at University of Arizona global campus. I recommend this school to everyone."

"To describe my experience at UAGC, I first have to start in 2019 when the school was known as Ashford University. I was only 19 and didn't know much about college, I was truly only interested in the proper accreditation as well as getting my degree in a timely manner. The five week classes are truly unbeatable. This is one feature about UAGC that stands out and makes it a good deal. Being that I doubled up my credits, I was able to get done in about half of the time. That being said, the things you hear about advisors and the schools issues are somewhat true. Keeping an eye out on your degree progress is super important because classes can be dropped, or credits can appear and disappear over night. This can be very frustrating, for example, with only 16 credits left for my BA I was suddenly showing 1 unscheduled credit that had never appeared before. I contacted advisors, and apparenty my military credits all of a sudden were missing ONE credit. I took a sophia class, (80$), and was able to fix it quickly. But being so close to graduation and all of a sudden having a missing credit was frustrating, both mentally, emotionally and financially. This is just one issue that has happened with scheduling, classes drop and get rescheduled all of the time and most times students are not given warning. This has been my biggest issue, as well as certain advisors being unhelpful or having attitude. Being military I did not use my own money for this degree. This was why I didn't mind any financial issues, this might be a bigger issue for someone who pays for there own college. That being said, it is an easy way to get a bachelors degree after obtaining your CCAF and after you get your bachelors degree you can always transfer to another school for your masters because UAGC is accredited. With a good GPA, you'll be able to transfer. I am looking at the MBA program at UAGC now, it is IACBE accredited and I can complete it in one year. Again, I won't be paying for it and the classes are only 6 weeks long so I could of course have a different experience. But the accredited programs, as well as my 6-7 years work experience, I will be prepared for the civilian world. I would just do your research on all of the programs and see which are accredited by the proper institutions. This is important, and a new college student may not know this. The healthcare admin degree is accredited as a whole with the school, but not by specific healthcare admin accrediting agencies. While the MBA is accredited with the school, as well as IACBE. Everyones experience is different, but overall I would rate this school as not bad. I have also only done online school."

"This program is not appropriate to receive teacher certification in Missouri. It is a total waste of time and money if one plans to teach in Missouri. I contacted the Missouri Department of Elementry and Secondary Education and now understand that the degree they provide will not advance one toward teacher certification."

"Do not come here, I only had nine classes left to complete my bachelor's degree. Instead of letting me finish the 9 classes I need. I had to take other classes. Now my account has been place on hold because I can no longer use financial aid to cover my courses. I felt like I was taken advantage of. My advisor would send me emails but would never respond to my email. Instead of completing my degree within I was removed from the school."

"University of Arizona Global is Ashford under a new name. It is a scam school, for profit (restructured to hide this). They market to military and low income. The degree is garbage. You cannot get a job with Arizona Global University you will be laughed at. The credits won't transfer to a real university. It is a diploma mill and again (for profit) do not let the new name and shady accounting fool you. It is Ashford. The most shadey fake school in America."

"They transitioned from Ashford University to The University of Arizona "global campus", and had no idea what they're doing. I had a "hold" and they didn't know why. I ended up failing a course because I couldn't log into my class to submit my final paper which was 30% of my overall grade. A "D" in college is an F so I got to redo my course and pay for it. It's a total sham and student services is no help and has no idea what's going on. If I could go back I'd tell myself this place is not worth it. Keep looking, or invest your money somewhere else. Because going back to school at 40 yrs old and having to go through all that BS is for kids that don't have a life an family to provide for. Paying an extra $1800 for no reason, it's so maddening."

"I have enjoyed attending Ashford's online campus. I enrolled for my B.S. in Early Childhood Education in 2017 and graduated 10/2020. After graduating and the experience I had at Ashford, I decided to re-enroll for my M.A. in Special Education, and so far, I am happy I did. I will be graduating with my master's on 8/21. After attending Ashford, I feel very confident in seeking a new career in education. All of my professors were excellent and very helpful throughout my entire education—outstanding online school. Be prepared to work hard and do your part with your teacher's support and all the resources they have to offer; you will succeed. I would highly recommend the school to my friends and family."

"This school is a bit different from a traditional classrom. Professors will not hold your hand. It is a lot of self study, self direction and self motivation. And reading, reading, reading. If this is not your style of learning, then enroll somewhere else. I personally am almost done with my Masters and I got a lot out of it. The curriculum and reading covered a broad base of knowledge."

"I chose this school because it was 100% paid for by the company I work for and it took exactly 23 months for me to graduate. Below are a few things to consider: -Advisors will not hold your hand and walk you through the start of each class. If you reach out they are definitely helpful and respond quickly. -The work is easy as long as you put in the time and effort. One class every fives weeks expect roughly 10-15 hours a week of homework/ dedication. -Professor assistance if 50/50. Some go out of their way to help and others say call IT or use your tutoring resources. I asked for clarification on an assignment and one professor copied and pasted the original requirements with out further explanation. -If you are independent and don’t care to engage with other students or professors and simply looking to get the work done and get it done well than the school is a good fit. - During COVID professors were understanding if you reached out and just let them know your struggling emotionally/ mentally and they are more than willing to accommodate."

"VERY disappointed with this school! Very disorganized from the beginning, and no-one knows anything about you when you call. They drop you from your classes at any point, and you can't get back in until the next one starts. I was dropped in the 4th week for something ridiculous, and they would not put me back in, all that work lost!!!! That was the second time that had happened. Would def do your research on schools before you decide on this one!! Don't screw yourself with extra work that can be avoided. Wish I had picked different!! :("
