"I have wanted to go back to school since I graduated high school (2007). My sister started at University of Phoenix and she encouraged me to continue my education because it was so easy for her. So I finally decided to do it and she was right!!! My adviser was incredible, she helped through every challenge that came our way and was no stress at all. Now I'm starting my first year of college in April 2015 to pursue my associates degree in the medical field so I can help provide for my family and they can have a bright future ahead!"

"The work is hard but if you make the effort and maintain a rhythm things will become much easier as you grasp the system used. The student financial services are awful, they ask for the loan for you, yet through the term they ask for more money. In fact, I am currently attending the school for my BA, yet I have been out for a month because the financial administration has me on hold and have been unable to go back, and made me write the same statement over and over. Unfortunately the school focus is money not students advancements."

"Starting off I was nervous because it was all new but I have recieved a lot of help and I am always pointed in the right direction. Someone is just about always there when I need them. I would reccomend this school to anyone."

"I think before people choose to study online, they need to consider how much harder it is, especially if you have a full time job. Not only is it hard, but if you are just starting, it is usually best to consider technical schools that get right to the point, instead of taking all of these classes that cost thousands of dollars and will not benefit you in the long run. I am taking am working on getting my associates in arts of business and I have yet to take a class that has anything to do with business. I'm 6 months into it! What I can say is that, I will finish out my associates here, but I will certainly not waist my time on a bachelors with UOP. College in general is a waste of money, when you have access to technical schools all around. It is a shame that I didn't realize this prior. Live and learn! Even if they are to switch up the curriculum, it is still not worth it. You can take 7 weeks of business and then go one to reading, then critical thinking, then the lab work that they give you. It's just a messy pile that takes you all over the place."

"What they do not tell you is that they will work your class schedule to where there is a class left over to where you are not 'full time status' and you will have to pay out of pocket for it. But every check they send of 'extra money' should have been saved for the extra class that is not covered. They do not tell you this. Its just another way for them to get more money out of you. Then when you have to drop out because you cannot afford to pay $1200.00 out of pocket they will send it to collections right away."

"When I graduated from high school I was on my own and working two jobs. I had decided that I was not going to be able to go to a college campus full time and still be able to provide for myself. I decided that my best option was to take online classes. I began my degree in late 2010 and ended early 2014. Normally for an Associates degree you would only take 2 years to complete, but I still have alot of bumps along the way. My couselors were great. They understood what I was going through with changing jobs, moving to different states and just all around changes in my life. They worked with me every step of the way and working with me helped to complete and finish my degree. I am thankful for all the help I received and would recommend University of Phoenix to anyone that is in similar situation or just wants to go back to school and still be able to continue working and living their daily lives."

"I actually enjoyed my time as a student with the University of Phoenix. Although, it was enjoyable..it was a bit high in tuition, but overall, it allowed me to be able to work and complete school at the same time. I just wished I had more funds to complete school, however, it was great being a student with UOP"

"I really enjoyed attending the University of Phoenix Online Program. I was able to keep up with classes, work a full time job and be a single mommy to an amazing little girl. I felt very motivated because I knew the classes I was attending would be very beneficial to my future endeavors. My academic counselor and financial aide adviser were always available when I needed them which made me more secure. I would recommend this University to anyone interested in taking online classes."

"I keep reading all of these post about how there is no help and they failed because they didn't receive any help. This is college people, if you can't learn on your own then maybe you shouldn't be here. I think the people complaining are the people who thought University of Phoenix is a paper mill. You have to work hard and study long hours in order to receive a good grade. If you receive good grades then you do not fail and you will not have to take the class over. I have 36 of my 60 credits completed for my AA in Foundations of Business and I have not had any problems with grade, administration, financial aid or attendance yet.I have learned a lot from the education that I have received and I have already landed a great job because of my enrollment with University of Phoenix. The tuition is crazy high but it that's of with me because the schedule works with my busy work hours. Bottom line, I would recommend this school to anyone who is self driven. "
