"I am so disappointed with UOP that I don't think writing a review will even do it justice. It has nothing to do with the classes, because I think that they have been wonderful and the instructors as well. I love to ability to do everything online but that is about where my positive comments for this place stops. My first complaint is for the advisors, the people you rely on to help you though the process, the ones who are suppose to help you with all the things you don't know about going to college, like taking the right classes, the area in which you live and lastly the money part of it! The advisors are terrible. They lie, they get switched all the time. I did my entire program through UOP from the start my AA went great then my BS started and it went okay for about a year. Then I went to switch to the local college because I wasn't working any more and I thought that having the last year would be nice in an actual college setting. Well I couldn't, I could not credits, I would of needed to take to additional classes before I even started then my BS program would start. I was already half way through my BS with UOP. SO I decided to stay where I was at, which was fine. I wanted to move, UOP lied and said I could. so I moved to WA and then when I got there my advisor changed and I had a new one she said I could not live in WA and stay in that program because I would not be able to do any observation hours in WA. WHHHAT?! I moved across the country and asked on the phone if it would be okay and I was told yes, now a NEW advisor says no?! I had to move back to NM to complete my program. Or drop out and not be able to transfer credits…. At the end of my program I started student teaching which I had to find a place to do it, which is also a lie, on the student teaching application it says that the student is NOT allowed to contact the school where they are applying to do student teaching. Well I had to because NO ONE from UOP was calling. I had to figure out what teacher would let me in, that I needed ANOTHER back ground check. UOP did not tell nor did the help with any of that information, when I called or sent emails about it I would not get responses for days. There is a deadline to start student teaching or you have to wait till the next school year, I did not have time to just wait for them to do their job… Endorsements, as an educator we need to have an endorsement on our license, we do not HAVE to but its highly sought upon by employers. Well UOP doesn't offer that, another lie. When I enrolled 4 years ago I specifically asked on the phone about endorsements, well because I have had so many advisors I don't know who I asked, and I should of sent it in an email so I had proof because now my advisor called me a liar. My final complaint, the cost. I am all for getting a degree. Im so proud of myself being a single mom and completing school is awesome. The price is alarming. You know all the time you are in that you are going to have to pay it back but at the end when you have to do an exit summary of your loans you will about have a heart attack. I know I did. My advise, go to school! If you pick UOP or any school ask questions lots and lots of questions in an email so that you have a trace of them. Remember who you talk to and send it in emails. Keep track of your loans and how much you have taken out! Good Luck an education is the best investment you'll ever make."
