"I enjoyed the University of Phoenix program and am continuing my education to my masters through the University of Phoenix as well because it gives me the opportunity and flexibility to obtain my degree. The programs are based upon what a student needs to know to become successful in the real life setting. I felt supported while attending this school from my enrollment officer to my financial officer. I never felt alone on my journey to obtain my degree."

"This isn't a bad college, and it seems like most of the complaining is coming from people complaining about financial aid. Is that all people sign up for? You have to put maximum efforts into your schooling, it tells you that in the handbook. They tell you how much the classes are before you sign up, so it's no surprise how much the classes are. The instructor post videos to help you further your knowledge, but you also have the center for math that offers tutoring, so those of you who are complaining, stop writing bad reviews because you couldn't handle it. College isn't high school, more is expected of you, and no one is going to hold your hand for life!"

"UofP is a great University. It caters to adult learners - So grow up! You reap what you sow. If you have had a bad experience, it is probably because you did not put your all into it. If a school is that bad, there is a such thing called...... "enrolling in another school." Or are you too smart to realize that......"

"Dear Online Review Prospects, University of Phoenix is a great school where you learn exactly what you put into it. If you are a student who consistently needs your hand to be held to learn, this is not the school for you. Online school requires self-determination and a commitment from yourself to study, learn and do homework. I have read some of the reviews of how UoP is horrible and more. Well, I must tell you that these are the types of students who do not study. The education level is up to par with most traditional brick and mortar schools. I will tell you that the beginning classes carry some lazy and fairly undesirable students who do not contribute to the team assignments; however, the further up you go, you will find that most students are prepped well to contribute to assignments for the team. Faculty varies a little too; some of the professors are super achievers and schedule a ton of personal and team projects each and every week. Also, some professors will nit pick you left and right and you will never get a perfect score. Others, however, are a little more relaxed but carry themselves up to standard. Overall, I will grade this school a solid 9 out of 10. I would grade it a solid 10 if it was not for the team assignments. Some students are very lazy which sometimes makes it hard to achieve 100 out of 100. I will leave you with this note. If you are ready to work hard, without anyone chasing you around, this is definitely a school you may want to consider. If you need a personal interaction, you will have a hard time with online education."

"If you want a degree that requires no more education than an elementary student, Phoenix is for you! You will not learn anything from attending this school. I wanted my degree to expand my knowledge in my field, but I ended up losing out gaining knowledge on potential opportunities. Not only is the education terrible, but the teachers are too. They cannot type or speak in the least bit of English, so I do not know what they are asking for us to do. All of my teachers have also forced their political opinions down our throats and fought with their students to prove their vastly incorrect points. All-in-all, a great kindergarten school and a very mediocre elementary school, but VERY far from a college."

"Students, Just like you, I did my research before I started in 2014 and heard a lot of complaints. I must tell you that the people who complain are those who DO NOT STUDY. I am close to graduating next year with a current GPA of 3.93 and have learned a lot. I give the teachers of this university a five out five stars. If you are not ready to study 15-20 a week on your own, do no join! It is hard but very rewarding I must say."

"The school is terrible, academically. Even if it is a math class, you can expect to have a written essay of 1400+ words each week. I attended the school online and if I asked my instructor about why I received the grade that I received, I was almost always directed to go to my academic advisory rather than asking these questions of my instructor (the individual who grades my papers!). Some instructors are so lenient that they will throw A+'s at me without even providing a grade and others are knocking off THIRTY PERCENT of my grade because I wrote half the paper in 1st person. It is not fair and the lectures/instruction is not equivalent to that of a reputable college."

"The university's online program was the best opportunity for me as a working adult. I am thankful for the flexibility that it offers. Although some individuals speak negatively about the university, what you get out of the learning experience will depend on your motivation to learn. I have experienced those who take advantage of the system and I suspect graduate without learning anything. I've been an A student since junior high school and other universities besides the University of Phoenix. I am also retired military and halfway through my second career. No doubt that there are more intense programs at other institutions, but again, its all about your willingness to learn and challenge yourself."

"I earned my bachelors degree in business with a focus on information systems at UoP. the first 3/4 of my classes were on campus, the last courses I took were only available online. Here is a list of Pros/Cons of my experience at UoP. Cons Took 4 years, when the enrollment counselor said it would only take 2 very expensive. Even with grants I still owe 40K I have some good and some bad academic counselors assigned to me, and they seemed to change every few months intensive teamwork needed. Every week 2 papers due, one individual and one team written. Every week. for years.... NO technical training included whatsoever- I didn't learn how to use any technical tools, not even the common business tools like Microsoft office. Everything seemed like was more of an overview/review of business "ideas" - no value to me besides the "piece of paper" degree to further my career Now I am currently trying to leverage my credits/degree from UoP to apply for the PMP certification and UoP counselor refuse to assist me in identifying eligible courses and credits. Pros: lifetime access to their online library (or so I've heard) none of the usual issues at a college campus such as parking, and carrying around heavy books. course material is all electronic fast paced classes, each only lasts a month (could be a pro or a con really) Fit into my schedule as a working single mother (classes were only 1x per week and online)"

"Before UoPx, I attended San Diego City College and San Diego State University. I was amazed by the high-quality, personalized service provided by all of the staff and faculty at UoPx, especially compared to the other two colleges I attended. For me, one of the primary considerations was completing a degree in a timely manner, which is next to impossible at a traditional university since there is no guarantee of access to courses you need, and even in my first semester at SDSU I had to try to crash a couple core classes. With Phoenix, once you pick your course of study, your academic counselor sets up your entire schedule from start to finish. No more crashing classes, no more guessing whether or not the class you chose will apply towards your degree. Your schedule is set from day one. After that, my primary concern was the relevance of the education to my career and life goals. In just about every career, you will at some point need to make a presentation or show someone the plan for a project. In this way, UoPx is so far ahead of other universities. Every class has some sort of group and individual project for you to work on, so while you learn the things you'll need to excel in your job, you're also learning how to work on a team and do quality presentations. I have received three promotions in the two years since graduating with my BS Business degree, and I just started classes at UoPx towards my MBA. I can't recommend this university highly enough!"
