"University of Phoenix has been the best choice I made in my college career. They really want to help their students and help make a better life for their students. They do everything possible to accommodate life and unexpected things that happen in life for their students. I am 7 months away from graduating with my degree and I can honestly say U.O.P. has made it so easy for me to incorporate schooling into my busy life with two kids and a full time job. I want to thank all of the instructors but especially the academic counselors for all of their help getting me to where I want to be in life!"

"First, let me preface this review by saying I already hold two degrees, from two different universities. None of those courses were online. However, as I am changing careers and a busy mother of three, I needed a degree program with much more flexibility. A good friend, a published doctor, recommended UoP to me. The online courses at UoP are perfectly designed, catering to all learning types. The majority of the staff are engaging professionals with advanced degrees in the field they are instructing. I am quite surprised more universities are not moving this direction especially when the cost of tuition alone requires most students to hold a full-time job. Two of my favorite courses so far are Anatomy and Physiology I & II. I have taken many biology courses, including advanced level genetics. I can honestly say that despite good grades in all courses, I felt I learned more at UoP than at any other institution. The online labs were more sophisticated and relevant to my intended career path than any lab I've ever taken in person. Using a pipette and hot plate is fun and all but I will never use either one in my career. I will however take and monitor blood pressure, need to understand healthy vs abnormal heart rates, glucose levels, assist patients in understanding the digestive process, etc. The only negatives I've experienced are a few lazy coeds that you have to work with on team papers (lazy coeds exist at every institute) and the finance department. I'd recommend you stay on top of details because they will not. Make sure you know every single cost and pay attention to how much comes back to you, if you are taking out student loans. Hopefully employers are not paying attention to negative reviews. If a student really has a desire to succeed, they will."

"University of Phoenix Online was a great way to complete my BS degree as a working single mom. I was able to complete my degree at my pace. I also enjoyed the team project approach which is real world based. The team projects simulated just how working with peers in the workforce can have it's challenges and rewards. Overall University of Phoenix worked out extremely well for me and my educational needs."

"University of Phoenix is a great school to attend to further your education. All of my teachers were well prepared and obviously worked within the field they taught. It was awesome to have their personal experiences as well as their knowledge combined. It truly prepared me and pushed me to further my education as well as advance in my career. I am currently working in the health care field at the Veterans hospital and the bachelor's I received from University of Phoenix, has allowed me to apply for higher paying positions and actually be considered for them as well. I am thankful for my time at UOP and cannot wait to start their Master's program soon."
Bad Payment Schedule for Veterans

"Today is September 1, 2017, the day Post 9/11 G.I. Bill Veterans are supposed to get paid for attending school for the month of August. It's 3:57Pm California Time and still no payment has process for me or any of my military friends that attend University of Phoenix. I called my financial adviser who told me "University of Phoenix doesn't submit attendance until the 3-5 week of class." My 5th week of class will be September 11, 2017... and the VA doesn't pay out until the first which means I wouldn't get any of my August money until October! My bills are due at the beginning of the month when we are supposed to get paid not a month later. After 3 days of late rent my rent goes up 15% from $1,350 to $1,552 while I wait on UoPX to submit attendance somewhere in between the third and fifth week of class. Very UNRELIABLE!!!! Most people will choose this school because it only requires you to go to school 1 day per week but for setbacks you have to go through just because they want to do things on their own time is not worth it. My veteran friends who go to regular schools get paid at the first of the month every month and on time while over at University of Phoenix the Veterans have to wait until they feel like submitting the attendance so that we can get paid... although they get their money up front and don't have to wait."

"Scam. They enroll you in courses without telling you about it, and then charge you for them (even if you aren't a current student). This "school" cares about one thing only- their bottom line. It's all about the money. The education stinks. The courses are horrible. Save your time and go elsewhere. Ashford University has an online program that is amazing!"

"I was told by my financial advisor that my tuition was going to be about 14, 000.00 in total i knew i was going to pay interest. while attending classes I paid a few thousands of dollars. My financial aid paid a couple as well, and at the end i was still slapped with 20,000.00 in student loans. this college is shady, I will make sure everyone that I know knows about it. Many of my friends wanted to take classes there but I will make sure i tell them my experience with them."

"I think UOP is okay. I've been a student with them for a long time. As a kid, there were the only adult alternative school I heard of and when I failed to take the SAT, they were the first to accept me. Collegiate programs are already exclusive settings. One really can not acquire too many occasions of "A Life Interrupted" or else...that's the door. I believe most rankings are really based on the initial experience one has with an organization or person(s). I've had counselors I've liked and then severely disliked, as well as professors. Now, I just figure that's life. I finally graduated with a degree after a long hard eight years and now I'm going to pursue a Master's from them. My advice for anyone looking to further their education with special circumstances would be to call around and ask questions from learning institutions you feel will best fit your needs. Be specific in what you are looking for or with what will benefit you the most. Ask specific questions such as, "What would be my overall study time for each week in regards to the program I want to enroll in or is it possible to have two full time jobs and still be successful in the program?" In some cases, the answer may be vague or unsatisfactory, so then I would suggest asking someone different and if still unsatisfied; applying to an institution that you feel meet your personal needs. College is expensive no matter where one applies. All schools hope to enroll students that will grant a favorable reflection, so be focused. Don't be hesitant to ask questions that may affect your ability to remain in good standing with any university and try to plan ahead if at all possible to avoid any additional fees or financial hardship. The programs with UOP normally starts off rather light and then progressively becomes challenging. I hope this helps :)"

"University of Phoenix greatly prepared me to enter into the health care field. UOP focused on team work through learning teams. The professors were all active health care professionals and shared their experiences with us. Their emphasis on presenting and group work has prepared me to enter into the health care field."

"I'm a current student and would not recommend this school at. The academic and financial advisors do not communicate with each, and every time I called, they have a different answer to the same questions. The school policy is to contact students at least 3 weeks prior to the next class to discuss any issues with financial aid and/or loans, but my advisor and academic advisors would not call. I received an email from my financial advisor the day before Thanksgiving of 2016, notifying me of a payment issue that would hinder my next class. When I called everyone was on vacation and no one around to assist me. It is so frustrating dealing with these people. There better accredited school than the UOP. Please if you value your time and sanity, DO NOT ATTEND THIS AWFUL SCHOOL. Also, just in you're wondering why I am still there, it's because I have a few classes left to graduate, if I was not so far into the program, I would have dropped out. I am getting my Masters somewhere else."

"The online program for me allowed the flexibility that I needed to continue working full time. I learned more than I ever anticipated possible through an online program. The professors were very professional and created an environment that was very conducive to learning. I was returning to school after a break of approximately 16 years. I was very nervous being a non traditional student but I found the advisors and faculty to be very accommodating. I was not in a situation where I could stop work to attend class. I also travel all over the country for my current career and being able to log in and work in the classroom 24/7 allowed me to be successful. I was so proud of my achievement I am now entering the Masters Program at the University of Phoenix. If you are considering an online program and wondering if you can find one that encourages a challenging environment that cultivates growth in many areas, this is your answer."

"I really enjoy attending the University of Phoenix. I have learned so much about myself and met many different people over the years. I have learned how to work together with others in a team setting and whenever I need help with something the school has the resources available to point me in the right direction. You will never feel alone or helpless because your academic and financial advisor are there to assist with any questions or concerns you may have. Even though my classes were on line I learned just as much as someone sitting in a traditional classroom setting. I have never had any issues with the University and now I am enrolled again for the masters program. I have been in health care for over 20 years and this degree with help me prepare for the next level in my life. Once I finish the masters program I will start working on my career. I would recommend the University of Phoenix to anyone who wants to get a good education and can't sit in the classroom this would be the best school for you."

"Only attend this school if you already hold a bachelor's degree and are working in the field that you intend to get your master's in. Unless you already work in health administration do not get your bachelor's degree at this institution. The cost is too high and the payoff is minimal at best. Getting a job in this field is virtually nonexistent even subsequent to graduating with a bachelor's and master's degree."

"The classes are okay the prices are outrages. Don't go to this school much better off finding a local school that offers online classes! I couldn't pay an outstanding balances in full so they said I could set up a payment plan and change the date of the payment and they didn't honor that and I was instantly sent to collections. Don't waste your money!!!"

"The university of Phoenix provide excellent support to the students in learning and preparing them for the future in his or her career paths. Also, allowing extra resources for students to learn and experience in turning in assignments, researching topics, and communications is the key to success. University of phoenix is a great school and the comparison between online classes and in campus classes talks a lot of different experiences because is more convenience and you work at your own space. I feel the academic advisors are very supportive in keeping track of your grade progress between the weeks that are required for each class if they see any concerns they will put they effort in contacting you to see if theres any questions or concerns needed to be answer, and the honesty I love it. In the experience I went through I was in and out because of my health and having the supportive team made me keep going without having no excused for it in other words it motivated me more to finished faster."

"When I became a single parent of two young daughters, I attempted to complete my bachelor's degree on many occasions but was unsuccessful. My school schedule was not collaborating with my work and parenting responsibilities. Motivation and determination to find another way, led me to discovering the University of Phoenix. After speaking with an enrollment counselor, I was very satisfied with the online method of classes. The only concern I had was the cost for my program and how I was going to afford it. University of Phoenix assigns a financial counselor to each student along with an academic counselor. These counselors were with me for the entire program and I was able to focus on every course. UOP gave me the opportunity to complete my BS in Health Administration because of their method of teaching class online. I was able to work a full-time job and a second job part-time, and attend my daughter's school functions and games. The convenience of online courses was an option I could not resist. I graduated in 2008 and my career took off. I am currently back in school for a dual Master's degree in Health Administration Management/Business Management with a concentration in Information Technology. University of Phoenix is an innovative way of learning but I just wish the tuition was a little more affordable."

"This school is a SCAM. I filled out my financial aid and for 3 months they been saying that they didn't receive my documents and I had to keep resending them. In On the student website it shows everything was submitted. I told them If they continue this game I will move schools and they said if I leave I will owe for the classes, that my financial aid should pay for but they are refusing it to me."

"I attended University of Phoenix seeking a degree in the Bachelor program. I read some of the reviews and one individual commented that they have yet to use their degree. No college can guarantee you a job, and it is up to the individual to ensure that they go out and find a job. UOP is not a bad school, their work is challenging and will prepare you for a job in your profession. Although, I have to agree that I do not approve of the learning team because it is a hassle of trying to get everyone on the same page when they live in different time zone. However, being on teams can be beneficial when the paper distributed among several students, but sometimes you end of doing more than expected."
