"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."

Don't go! - 10/5/2016
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"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!!!"

A college that is full of potential opportunities that keeps you going! - 9/28/2016
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"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."

Steve with an Update - 2/8/2016
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2014
"I am a 2014 UoP alumnus. I earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Health Administration to augment my experience in the industry. It saddens me to hear so many people think so poorly of the school. Maybe my experience was different from the majority, but I didn’t encounter problems with faculty, financial aid, or my academic advisers. I initiated contact with an admission counselor to inquire about the health administration program. I can honestly say I was not pressured to make any decisions, and no one made promises about a career making loads of money with this degree. I had the option to take the program on campus or online. I chose the latter because it best suited my schedule as a full-time worker. The university was far from perfect but it gave me the opportunity to get an education that matches my experience. Sure, the school was expensive but most universities are. My program cost $32,000, which my employer tuition reimbursement benefit covered half the cost. Since the school was on my employer’s approved listed of accredited schools, I jumped at the chance to continue my education. Were there better options at the time? Maybe, but if my employer viewed UoP as a viable choice, that was good enough for me. My degree shows my commitment to the profession, indicates I recognize the important link between education and professional growth, and compliments my 16 years of health administration experience. I received a promotion after completing my bachelor's degree, as did a coworker who became a supervisor after obtaining a master’s degree from UoP. I love working in healthcare and with my current organization but since earning the degree, I have “tested the waters” and applied for positions with other employers. I have not received any negative feedback. Is this because of my UoP education or experience? Probably the latter but I like to contribute it to a combination of the two. Either way, earning a bachelor’s degree from UoP was a long overdue achievement and has opened the doors to the possibility of earning a graduate degree from colleges in my state. I enjoyed my experience with UoP; however, I am not naive to think the university is suitable for everyone or comparable to an Ivy League or state university. Here’s my confession. Admittedly, if I hadn’t already earned an associate’s degree from community college and I lacked experience in my field, UoP wouldn’t have been my first choice. I believe UoP programs are valuable to the appropriate demographics; specifically working adults. The university’s programs work best for individuals already working in their fields or career changers who possess transferable skills or credentials (license, certifications, etc.). UoP is less suited for recent high school graduates or individuals with little or no work experience. There are better choices of education for these demographics. I believe many individuals are under the impression a college degree is a guarantee for success (i.e. career with high-income). Individuals forget with the current economy, there is no guarantee that any education will lead to a job. Any post-secondary education does increase an individual’s chances; however, enrolling in for for-profit colleges to earn a degree without relevant work experience or not considering better options such as vocational/trade schools or community colleges first is a costly mistake for some. Many students graduate with a mountain of student loan debt only to discover employers want more than education. Naturally, it’s easier to lay blame on the university for minimal or no career success after graduation rather than accept responsibility for their unwise choices. In my observations, successful UoP graduates are those who had careers prior to enrolling and used their educations to change or advance established careers or obtain the necessary skills to start their own businesses. The bottom line is those who remain committed to achieving their career goals will be successful regardless of where they earned their degrees. Look for others placing blame on their institutions for their lack of career achievements."
