"I love attending UOP online with my busy schedule of working and being a wife. UOP is a National accredited online college. The course work is very hard which pushed me to study harder. Don’t expect UOP instructors to hold your hand , this is something you’re going to have to do yourself as in the real world, and in the real workplace . UOP learning is intensive as is the work place . A Phoenix will fall down and rise up, However, it depends on your hard work and dedication to earn your wings. I had lots of lab training to complete for real world scenarios in programming language, cybersecurity, etc. UOP has stepped its college game up . I’m proud to be a Phoenix Graduate."

"The degree helped me to advance in my career, not because of the knowledge that I gained, but because of the actual piece of paper. Employers are still entirely focused on what degrees a candidate has, instead of their actual productivity, experience, creativity, and willingness to learn. What a shame. Well, I played the game, spent the money (took 10 years to pay off the student loans) and it led to employers actually considering me for a job. I learned way more on the job than in this school. The worst part was the rampant plagiarism by several of the other students. There were at least two or three in each class that would copy/paste responses verbatim from a google search. I had to be the one to point this out to the instructors and the students would remain in the class, even though they didn't do their own work. I reported it to my academic counselors who told me that they were following up, couldn't tell me the outcome due to confidentiality, but I would see the students again in later classes. I documented it very clearly, which links to their source and how their answers were not their own. UOP just wants your money. They don't care about an actual education. After four classes went by with the same behavior, I just gave up and quit complaining. I would merely post snarky responses to the offending students asking, "what's your source of information", or, "wow - you seem to know a lot about [topic] for being a BSIT student! Do you work in that field?" Their responses were incredibly lame. Instructors didn't even notice or care."

"Let me first state that I am still currently enrolled in UOP online. With that being said, I am disgusted by the way this college runs its financial aid department. This is really the only issue that I have had since I have been enrolled in online courses. I have been going here for 2 years now and have had to take 4 (5 week) LOA's because of the incompetence of the financial aid office. If you would like to receive your financial aid 4 months after you are supposed to and enjoy filling out paperwork that you're not supposed to, then this is the college for you. I spoke with an old teacher that I had in High School that now works in the financial aid department at a college near me, and he stated that the paperwork that I was being forced to fill out was the responsibility of the college and not the student. I would never recommend taking online courses here. It has literally been 6 months since I completed all of the "required" paperwork and I have yet to receive a cent of financial aid for this semester. PURE NONSENSE."

"I enjoyed the school; there's a lot of material and if you're willing to push yourself you will do fine here. Some students do not give 100%. The specializations are helpful, and all of the courses align with industry standards (such as several CompTIA and Oracle exams). Down side- students aren't required to complete all of the course material. I work in the software field and the program has helped improve my work performance, helped me get a promotion, and has paved the way for a great career. Advice to future students - give 150%, hard work pays off."

"I had a great experience at UoP. I filled out a form to get more info and had someone contact me. He did not give up on having me sign up. Some people would call it pushy but I don't. If he had not been persistent I probably would not have followed through and not have the wonderful job I have now because I got my bachelor's. Online schooling is not for everyone. You need to be motivated to keep going. I had two jobs and would definitely not feel like doing school work until 2 am but I did it. I have read reviews about indifferent faculty. This is college, you are supposed to be an adult. You shouldn't need a person on you 24/7 to do your work. I have UoP to thank for where I am now!"

"Being active duty military my time is limited, and like anyone else who is taking time to work on a degree while fully employed or raising a family you have little time to spare.... I am utterly appalled by UOP and how they are handling their finance department. I can not explain without rambling on at this point about how disappointed I am with them and how they've managed my money and wasted my time, two very valuable things. I use to recommend UOP to my shipmates in the military and even considered myself a unofficial sponsor until their finance department and their system changed. Now they can not even correct a tuition issue with for a military member without having to waste hours trying to solve something that should be simple for a finance issue. In the military we have a saying that the admin's like to use as a joke "It's the members responsibility" well UOP does not make it easy on you to manage your own money. You have to make follow ups and they won't tell you when something is wrong or something needs to get resent. I do not recommend UOP anymore to my shipmates or to anyone. Good job UOP."

"UoP was a great experience and allowed me to start a career in IT. I wouldn't recommend this school to everyone nor any school. There is no hand holding, no babying, and no excuses. You are given assignments, due dates, and all the proper material to perform. It is completely up to you whether you succeed or fail. I saw loads of people wash out. So, this is definitely not a pay for your degree, no work institution. The lessons taught have been applicable to my career each day. One of the most valuable lessons is to be self reliant, perform proper research, and then apply critical thinking with all that information in order to solve an issue. I would rate this a great experience, but I would warn anyone not willing to put in the amount of time required and apply themselves properly; then it is a waste of time."

"My instructors did not give me help where I needed it, some even did the work and just had us submit it. They did not teach how to utilize the resources they provided or how to access them. I had a new adviser every couple of months and in my last year the school messed up my Fafsa and put me on an LOA repeatedly, did not tell me they couldn't process my funds while they had me on this LOA and made my last class take me a year to complete."

"Like any online University, even the ones associated with a big name brick and mortar ones, you only get out of it what you put in. If you apply yourself and work with your classmates you will learn and grow. The faculty are experienced in the real world and come from all sectors of private industry. Personally, I enjoyed my experience with UoP and I believe it helped me do my job better and grow professionally."

"With the way the world of technology changes everyday the information technology program I am taking at the University of Phoenix will have me in the right place where I want and need to be when I graduate in late 2017. The interaction that I have with my instructors and other students gives me the comfort level that I can do this and that I am ready for the changes in technology that happens everyday."
