Student & Graduate Reviews (22)
This college only cares as long as you are MONEY to them. Worst career placement, rude staff, poor customer service,
There are pro's and con's in mostly every decision we make and attending college is a good idea. Attending UOP has improved my life in many ways. I know I am a different person after graduating and walking across that stage! It is something that can never be taken away from me. It also allows me to perform my job better and deal with different personality types. Working on a team for close to 4 years provides experience that you need anywhere you are working. I initially did not have good experiences with it but eventually I became confident enough to work with anyone. I can point out a negative aspect which would be the high about of loans I now owe. It is more than other universities but I can't worry about it I just have to make sure I work hard to pay it back.
I have to see that I am very pleased with the courses at UOP. I am studying criminal justice and I love the classes that is being offered. I first had reservations when I started, but I'm now in my 4th year and I feel that I made a great choice.
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.
It's a great school but their rate is too high . If I did not view my financial reports I would pay more than what I borrowed
Worst school possible and worst experiences! The school is corrupt, cares only about money, and simply passes students along. The leaders of the school do not care and silence students by threatening their certification if they speak out. Honestly, this school needs to be criminally investigated.
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.
At the university of Phoenix, the entire staff collaborate to ensure a successful degree completion for all students. Class sizes are small and intimate which allows great dialogue and hands on learning during class sessions. The learning team experience is unique in itself because it creates a bond with students that otherwise may not otherwise had communicated with one another. The learning teams, are an essential attribute in todays work field, and although periodically members may experience don't difficulties, benefits also learn problem solving skills. The experience that I've gained at university of Phoenix, stretches far beyond the excellent book knowledge. My practicum knowledge directly can be tied back to my college matriculation at Phoenix. Collaboratively, I feel confident in my career choice. I owe that to my school. I am a Phoenix.
I feel that it is a good college for the most part. I did receive excellent instruction from some of my professors, was able to do both online and ground campus to complete my degree. It is a little overpriced, but for the flexibility of the program I feel it was a good start for me.
I find the instructors were knowledgeable and provided practical insight into the field that I plan to enter. The team assignments were excessive considering that most of the students are adult learners with ample experience working in team settings in the real world. Overall, I'd recommend the school to the working adult. I recommend that any students considering graduate degrees ensure that the appropriate accreditation exists for their programs.
