Student & Graduate Reviews

"Most of the teachers had deep knowledge of their field of instruction. Even more important though is the fact that they were good about understanding the wide variety of professional experience their students already had and helped them to see how their experience applied to the field of study. Working in study groups was a great learning experience as it gave you real-life challenges like how to deal with a team member that is not contributing. It is also a great networking opportunity. I have stayed in touch with several members of my study group and count them among my most valuable professional contacts."

"University of Phoenix is a great school, especially if you work full time and have children. Their schedule and class availability works well for working adults. My advisors where amazing they explained everything and navigated me throughout my studies. I am back in school getting my Masters and they are still outstanding."

"The educational experience at University of Phoenix was excellent. I received my BSB/M in 2004, and the degree has opened many doors to employment that would not have been available to me otherwise. The program I attended was on campus. My instructors all had extensive experience in the field in which they were teaching. I loved working in teams with others in my cohort. I learned as much from my fellow teammates as I did from the instructors. The weekly in class presentations helped me work through my fear of public speaking, which has helped me at work as well as in every day life. I truly cannot say enough how grateful I am for my experience at UoPHX."
Don't attend U of P - 12/21/2016
Graduation Year: 2016
"Let me start by saying, I was a transfer student from UNLV. I decided to transfer to U of P because I was working full-time and going to UNLV full-time and I was exhausted. Now...if you want a degree just because you need it to further your career, U of P would be a great option. For example, if you are a GS employee, they do not care what school you attend, as long as it is accredited. My issue with this school is the fact that EVERY TIME I HAD A QUESTION FOR A PROFESSOR, I WAS ALWAYS REVERTED TO YOUTUBE. I have a problem with paying tuition to a school and not being able to have a question answered. This happened on several occasions. Don't think you will be handed the work because you actually have to earn your grade and some professors don't care about what circumstances are going on in your life, the work has a deadline that needs to be met. As soon as I graduated, I was contacted to pursue a masters with them. I declined their offer because of the fact that their instructors (SOME, NOT ALL) refused to assist me as the student when I needed a clarification on work. My academic advisor was great and we've developed a great relationship through the years, she always managed to take her time with any questions or do research when necessary. If I had to do it over again, I would have a selected another institution."

"Not going to write a long story but I regret enrolling in this school. I was definitely misled. This school does not care for their students. They used a great marketing strategy to lure us students in their school. I currently am a campus student but will be forced to do online classes for the remainder of my courses. This is a load of crap!! Since the retention rate of new students went down and students dropping out, they decided to close the campus I am at. I was told from the head directors that the last few students were going to finish the remainder of their program til graduation. I think i deserve my loans be forgiven for the false advertisement this school portrayed. How can people basically steal money from people that are trying to better themselves. Some country we live in !!!"

"I loved UOP the instructors were tough but fair and they were always available for you and most them gave out their personal telephone number if you needed to connect with them not just emails, i was impressed by that. UOP was expensive and honestly if i had to do it again i would have researched schools thoroughly and saved about $10,000 but its over now and the process was enjoyable and controversial at times dealing with different personalities in the team aspect, but it made me an stronger person also the financial aid services, and academic services were incredible when ever you needed them they were there and if they were not available they returned your calls back promptly."

"Almost all the faculty are part-time so they do not have much time to spend with students after class to discuss issues with syllabus and assignments, etc. Also, only a handful of the faculty are really proficient at teaching, the rest just waste time bumbling through the syllabus. If you are lucky to be taught by those few great faculty, you will learn a lot; if not then you will be frustrated."

"I found it very stressful to juggle being a full-time worker, single mother of three, and finding the time to complete all of my course work. The 5 week courses sound good in theory, but personally, my reality was that it was very difficult. You have the reading and work of a full college courses crammed into 5 short weeks. This equals to no time for family or sleep."

"I have an almost 4.0 average, I received on A- for not following the format the teacher wanted the paper to be in, no way to know ahead of time as the first paper is due before I ever attended the class. Despite the A average, I have learned almost nothing from this school, I am sure the average 8th grader could pass with a B average. I am so disgusted with the lack of teaching from about half of the instructors, and the 60% or so of classmates that are ignorant, do the bare minimum and somehow pass class after class. The 5 week class pace is much too fast to really learn anything, every single quiz and assignment is plastered all over the internet, to include finals. Anyone that can search google can pass the final. I don't do this as I really like to try, but when researching questions they just pop up all over the search engines. I feel trapped as I have wasted so much time in this school I now just want to finish the degree and get as far away as I can from it. I am a very motivated hard worker who really wanted to get a great education, and this school is for the losers that just want an easy pass to collect their free money."
