"University of Phoenix is a very good university. The faculty are competent and they seem to really care about how each student does in their class. I received compliments when it was deserved and correction when it was necessary. The instructors seem to notice and value hard work and effort and rewards it with good grades and praise. I enjoyed most of my time at University of Phoenix but it was not easy. If potential students are looking for an easy A they will not find it at UOPX. The degree program I studied was general psychology and I enjoyed the courses. The curriculum was thorough and relevant to my career interests. My biggest complaint is with their financial aid department. I feel they are not as well trained as other members of the faculty because the reps I dealt with were not up-to-date on the latest rules and regulations relating to federal guidelines regarding student aid. Unfortunately, I have not finished completing my bachelor's degree because I ran out of federal funding, so I have to find other means to finish paying for college. I acknowledge that as an adult it was primarily up to me to make sure that I had the funding to complete my education. However, UOPX financial aid reps could have helped by understanding and alerting students to the upcoming issues with their financial aid and any guidelines the students are not aware of because they are the professionals and it is their job. It would keep students from being caught off guard as they reached their financial aid limits and those students could already be seeking additional aid or putting money aside to complete their education. Otherwise, those students would find their education interrupted and their plans put on hold as they scramble to find the necessary funds."

"The courses seemed to be great in the beginning. Then they introduced this new classroom thing and everyone is confused and it is chaos online. The instructors do not reply to private messages that students send to them. I have asked my instructor a bunch of times for help in regards to my math homework and it's been a week and he still has not replied. After this new classroom format for their online program it seems like this college has gone downhill."

"The financial department is useless. I received my Associates, however in the middle of receiving my BA my so called financial advisors was lack of communication and inability to process the verification my financial caused unnecessary problems. Helping the student or supporting the student with their so called graduate team is a joke."

"I enrolled at this school with a lot of doubts in my mind and was kind of worried about money, especially because they offered little help. The online classes are fairly easy, however, the instructors are just horrible at givin instructions at times.Also, I have attended this school for two years and I am about to graduate in 4 months, never in these two years have a had an official counselor. Furthermore, I know that everyone complains about how every university is in it for just the money, but trust me when I say this, UoP is certainly in it just for the money, I will no longer continue my education here, I have been given a scholarship at GCU which will pay for almost all of my financial need for each semester, where as at UoP I had to take out a full student loan for the whole associates degree.I just want to warn people out there who are considering this school, if you have the money to this school go for it but if you know you need more help aside for grants and don't want to be in deep depth then don't even think about this school."

"I have attended a technical college for nursing, an on campus university for teaching, and now online for psychology. I chose online because I live in the middle of nowhere-the nearest college is over 45 miles from my home. This is the most intense education I have received. I am forced to interact with my classmates with substantive conversations and minimum word count. During my other times in school, it was irrelevent if I ever met my classmates. I have minimally one quiz and one test in each class weekly. The amount of studying for these is mind boggling.I do not have to schedule a meeting with my professors-I have a private chatroom for only the two of us and they reply to anything I post within 24 hours-most within a couple of hours. They are available by telephone as well. My advisors call or email regularly and I look forward to their calls.When I graded the school from Terrible to Fantastic, they received Fantastic in all but Job Placement Services. They cannot be held responsible for that because the field I chose has limited opportunities.What they have done however is help me with preparation for qualifying for anything should the opportunity arise-from resume preparation to making sure, and helping me to through the difficult paths to be sure I am certified in my state and meet all the requirements for the positions my degree qualifies me for-in addition to an excellent education-a five star education."
