"In September of 2019 I decided it was time to use my G.I. Bill to attend college. I served in the Marines for 12 years 2001-2013 as a Supply Chief. The counselor instructed me to give him my SMART transcript so he could see how much of my military education would transfer over to UOP credits. To my surprise it was 50. With this information I started my my classes and never looked back. Out of high school I attended The University of Kansas and my curriculum was just as hard if not tougher in some cases at the UOP. Not only was the work challenging but I could always get a hold of an instructor if I needed them. The one thing I don't care for is the group projects but luckily I had good partners. I worked a full time job 7pm-7am as a Production Manager and was still able to find the time to complete my program. You truly get what you put into it. The biggest gripe I hear is that they are for profit. I personally don't understand what the big deal is. What school isn't for profit. How do you expect to get new academic buildings built if you aren't making a profit? Whatever stigma the school about it being online should be erased by this point. Every school in America had to figure out how to convert their platform to online and UOP didn't. They are the best in the country at online learning. This past April 24th I graduated in Phoenix Arizona with a Bachelor's in Business Management. Before graduation I had been accepted into several MBA programs to include University of Tennessee, Penn State, Purdue University and University of North Carolina at Pembroke. The UOP had their graduation at the Arizona Diamondbacks Stadium. I must say the UOP sold me to come back and get my MBA. This was the most professional graduation I have ever attended which had to be hard because we were the first in person graduation since Covid-19 started. Now a month removed from graduation I was hired to be a Operations Manager for a Walmart Fulfilment Center which is a 6 figure job. I could not of been hired for this job without experience and a bachelors degree. One of the key things a learned in my undergrad that I use often is a SWOT analysis Strength, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats in business. I would highly recommend this school to anyone especially if you are working fulltime and you are a parent. Don't listen to others do what's best for you!"

"I attended the University of Phoenix and left due to illness and I actually went back to complete my degree. I transferred every credit into another College I applied to, and no one questioned my credits. The enrollment team accepted every credit into their University. My GPA was very high from doing the work. I actually went back to the University of Phoenix, because I realized the learning forum was much more organized and professional. It depends on the person and what they put into the learning experience."

"UoP was affordable and curriculum was easy to follow. I completed most of my classes in the classroom, but because of CV19, I my last 4 classes were online. ,"

"I took UOP because of my work schedule. It was difficult and different. However, it’s helped me get a better job and the school really works around your schedule. I think it just depends on who is your counselor and who are your professors. Is it pricy? Yes, but it’s very flexible. Now my daughter who is close to entering college is thinking about flexibility too. She is already taking college courses, from a community college, while in high school. When I help her, I notice the the same style, format, etc. as in UOP. So I’m seeing that other colleges are starting to be flexible too. Some students don’t learn from UOP but I did and took it seriously. I was worried about their accreditation, but I did a lot of digging. They are accredited but I don’t think for all their degrees they offer. Everyone has to make effort and not just assume. Its life."

"Since graduating from the University of Phoenix, I have applied to at least 30 entry level jobs in my field of study. Not one of them has called me back for an interview. Also, I have tried searching for careers through the resources on the university's website and needless to say. That has also left me at yet another dead-end. So now here I am with a degree, no job, and a bunch of student loan debt. In my educated and experienced opinion. This degree isn't worth the paper it's printed on."

"Okay, I would like to start by saying when I read some of these reviews it is as if I am reading the sad excuses team members would make to not participate or do the work effectively at school. Like others said, you get what you put into it. I am studying a topic that is interesting to me but also that I have some knowledge on so it has been helpful and insightful. I have had no problems with this school and immediately learned how to work with blackboard. Teachers DO NOT post assignments last minute, they are posted immediately when the class begins so students know what is coming up. Always be aware that people want things to come easy. I have watched several people drop from University of Phoenix purely out of laziness and not wanting to put in the work. Sorry, but again I have seen way to many people at this point complain about papers all because they couldn't understand basic directions or pay attention to the assignment deliverable. This is college, whether it is online or not, you have to read, watch any videos provided, study, contribute, participate and communicate in order to do well. I have had plenty of classes I did not like because of the topic at hand and i have also had professors that were very intense and fickle about how things had to be, but you adapt, you figure it out, because that's what you do in the real world. If you are not willing to put in the work it is not a schools problem, it is absolutely yours. This school challenged me and I am thankful for those tough classes and teachers because I actually learned."

"Well let's just say I paid for, worked extremely hard, and this school takes no bribes. After what happened with elite schools there's not much to say or make fun of any more..a graduate should be respected and judged on interview, resume, and other character points."

"I am unsure what rating to give this school. I have just started here and so far it is cool. The thing I have a problem with is the finances. I am a veteran and I am using my education benefits so of course I receive bah but the school only reports a certain amount of days out of the month to the VA even though I full time therefore I do not receive my full bah amount. Typically 6 days are left out. I have researched and other school do not do this. I am unsure why UoP does. Just a heads up to the veteran out there using post 9/11 or Voc Rehab."

"Honestly I find their online forum to be betrer than most online schools. I llike rhe structure of everything but what is upsetting for me is the financial aspect. More importantly the lack of assistance should things become difficult. I am a full time stufent while workikg full time in an executive management position. So itnis taking me a while to earn my degree while balancing both. Through financial aid they have collected more than $30k for my schooling. I am now down to about 10 courses to finish and earn my bachelors degree in business management, and am to the point where i have to pay some oop for courses as federal aid onmy gives so much. I ended up with a $3k balance which was hard to lay as a single working woman, took me a while but i was able to borrow from family and get it paid. I was out of school for a year, now that it is paid and trying to get back in they are not helpful at all. So basically they collect over $30k on my behalf, i dont have a degree and now they ignore and are not helping or responding so i can get back in class? Just seems like very poor business practices and a lack of care as to the education process. I mean lets be honest over $30k is ridiculous pricing for an online school anyway so to abandon students at the tail end because they took a little time to pay a balance that truthfully i dont even know why i would owe. The federal funding they get should be more than sufficient to pay for the full degree program with nothimg out of pocket. Dissapointed in their business practices. But i have no choice but to beg these people to respond and get me back in class since i and the government has invested way too much at this point. Just beware. If you are looking for a school to attend online i woild not pock UOP you will likely regret it and you may end up laying without ever earning the degree. Check your local colleges for online schooling or other online schools."

"This college is the worst. First they deny my student loans so I end up with an outstanding balance that I had to pay off and then the push back my classes because of the balance even though I WAS paying it off. Not to mention the people in financial aid are rude and disrespectful and never actually do their jobs. Monkeys could run a better college. They are just money hungry a holes and need to be fired. Every last one of them. They messed up not me and then they jeopardize my future because they want cash they would have had if they hadn't messed up AND they want it out of MY pocket! Please tell me how I can pay you guys when I need LOANS to get through school? Huh?"

"Beware of this school if you are transferring credits. They will lie and mislead you and explain that it will take a couple of months before they can complete your credit transfer. They will lie about how many credits they believe will transfer over just to get you to enroll and pay for two classes before they can complete your credit transfer. Do not pay for classes until they completely finish the credit transfer. Understand that they dont accept all credits like other schools do. Learn from my terrible experience and save your self money by being wise and not being mislead by their lies. Wait the two months to get the results before ever taking a class"

"I initially started UOP at a local branch. Then the local branch was closed and I was forced to continue online. This was very challenging for me, however it was the only option as almost none of my classes would transfer to another University. Also as a Veteran that is receiving GI Bill Benefits, UOP is NOT recommended for any veteran. In four years here, I never get my BAH pay on time. UOP has a unique way to report attendance, and therefore your payments are always broken up by the VA and unpredictable. Also the financial aid is credited to any payments that VA has not made and therefore you get your financial aid in chunks and it is also VERY unpredictable when it will come. The financial aid advisors never can give you a straight answer. VETS, go elsewhere!!!"

"This is the more stupid and corrupt institution that I have ever witnessed in my 15 years in the business world. I was unknowingly dropped from my class just because I had all my work done ahead of schedule. I have never witnessed such b*******. I submitted all my work on a Monday. This included the 6 assignments for the week, 3 discussion posts, and also 4 other posts I made just because I am an over achiever. I then took the rest of the week off because I knew that my work was 125% done for the week. When I logged back in the following Monday ready to submit the following weeks worth of assignments I find out that I have been dropped out of the class. You have to post during 2 different days during the week or they will drop you and not give a s*** if you were out of the country and are therefore unable to post even if you wanted to. Being at the top of the class and an over achiever does not register with these people. I was apparently supposed to wait and post one of my already completed assignments on another day. This is the most a****** and a** backwards thing that I have ever witnessed. I would not recommend this school to my worst enemy."

"I attended both; traditionally university and the UOP, and the level of education is very similar. Both have advantages and disadvantages but one thing for sure, at UOP I felt like the education was much more relevant to my degree. At the beginning, UOP felt exhausting but once you get a system down and organized, it was very manageable."

"Admissions told me I was good to start classes, so I did. After I attended TWO classes, (2 months later) $2800 later mind you, I was told I needed to send in more paperwork. Long story short, they did not as accept my paperwork and was told I could not continue attending classes. Then they also did not apply my APPROVED financial aid to the 2 classes. I ended up having to pay out of pocket. My gut told me not to go there within the first couple of hiccups but I didn't listen to it. BE CAREFUL, it all seemed like scam to me!!"

"Going to UOP is like self teaching. They don't have professors, they have facilators. You must learn all the content yourself. Most of the assignments are just writing. I have a math class and still have to write 8 posts a week! The practice problems in the math lab are things you haven't covered yet. For example the problems you are assigned in week 2 you don't cover in the videos until week 3 or 4. The facilators take a few days to respond on a course that has weekly deadlines. When I switched programs, my new adviser was horrible about getting things done on the computer and communicating with me. I am considering changing Universities after this course. I can't speak to financial aid because I am self pay. The only thing I liked about this school was Irv Keck. He was the one who enrolled me and has followed up with me often."

"Their financial department s*****. The representatives dont know what theyre doing. If you ask questions they just repeat the previous answer they gave you. Also, when it comes time to waiting on final grades the teachers will take days just to grade an assignment that has already been graded. Dont mind waiting on my grades until it comes time for me to get a refund and my disbursement days getting pushed back because my professor taking forever to post final grades."

"I was already established in my career, with a number of credits from a four year university without a degree, UOP offered classes at the company I was employed with. All the instructors were employed professionals in their field and/ or instructors at a college which gave the students first hand knowledge and experience in their field. All of the students were working adults in different areas of business, from banking, manufacturing, medicine, etc. which allowed each of us to share our experiences and new ideas with one another in real work situations. It was the best education I could hope for. As a result my salary increased upon graduation and constantly increased."

"I have been attending the University of Phoenix for years. I obtained my associates, my Bachelors, and am now working on obtaining my MBA. The University of Phoenix has given me the time ease and convenience of furthering my education doing my spare time. I love being able to access my school work via app or any computer. My instructors always respond in a timely manager whenever I have a question, and always provide a challenging curriculum that lets me know I am indeed receiving a great education. The University of Phoenix has helped me obtained the degrees that I have always dreamed of obtaining, and by doing so I will be able to go far in my career.
