"I signed up for the Bachelors of Science Information Technology with Advanced Multimedia. Up front I asked for a curriculum. I was sent a link to the degree courses. After I had signed up, I noticed that only 5 courses out of the 27 courses were set up for me that applied to what I wanted to learn. Then I get this email from my academic advisor that 5 of my courses have now been combined in to just 1 course. So the Flash, Dreamweaver, courses were taken away and combined into 1 class. So you know what that means? I have to take other bull crap classes to make up my credits for what was combined. All this was done after I had already signed up and started my first course."

"I for one am really upset about all the bad press that UOP is getting. Maybe, as a for-profit organization, they have done some things wrong in the interest of making those profits. OK, I get that. But I can only speak about my won experience: I have worked in the IT field all my adult life, having earned an Associate's Degree WAY back in the early 1980s. But the IT field changes so quickly, I realized that if I wanted to keep myself relevant, I needed to upgrade my education. Because my job requires a lot of travel, only an online college would work. After lots of research in 2001, I settled on UOP. At that time, I found mostly positive review of it's IT program, so I made the decision to go with them. I knew what I was getting into, in terms of the effort required and the total cost of a full Bachelor's program. And I knew they were "for-profit" but I decided they would be worth it. I knew then that, when I was done, I would owe a lot of money, but I made an informed choice to do it. For those who say the quality of UOP's programs is low, and that the courses are "too easy", I can only reply "bull-$#@%"! I worked my butt off for five years to complete the courses (I had to take one year off after about half done). The work was tough, the teachers were always top-notch, and the program was challenging. Yes, I am now paying off about $40K in loans, but I knew every semester just how much I was taking on. Yes, I wish it had been cheaper but, as I said, it was an informed decision I made. And I believe the entire program, and the degree I proudly display, was worth every penny."

"This is not by any means a technical college. Certifications in the IT field will go a long way further in this career field than a Bachelors from here."

"DO not waste your time with the school. They tell you it is easy for the working class, and the first three mandatory classes are easy, but once you get into the real classes, the technology takes a dive. For instance, I was able to read the text on my phone and tablet. This was great for work and times I was commuting or had free time, I could do some reading. After I started the core classes, this option was usually not available, and you could only read on a laptop or computer that allowed you to unlock the PDF textbook each time you opened it. They had it so protected, you couldn’t download and then transfer it to another device. Another issue is the group work. People taking online courses don’t have time to meet with five other people, who are all over the country, and work together for 5 weeks to make a final project. If it was one week, it wouldn’t be so bad. You usually have someone that doesn’t do their part and you have to scramble at the last minute to make it up so you can get a decent grade. I have had better luck and greater technology at the local community college so STAY AWAY!!!"

"The classes and instructors were very similar to the experiences my friends who went to traditional colleges experienced. The majority of instructors were very helpful, but some were only in it for the paycheck. As long as you focus on your assignments the work load is not very difficult, but it is not an automatic degree just for signing up."

"University of Phoenix would rather sign up students for a lifetime of student loan debt than provide a quality education. The method does not counsel the individual, but acts as a mill. The content was survey level at best and did not prepare me for a workplace job in the field."

"I went to this school just because it's free for me plus FAFSA cover the rest. I had no need for getting a degree but still enrolled because it was for free. The classes are pretty poor, to be honest I didn't even read the books, (wich btw they are digital and cost 90 bucks each). They do not give you a choice of classes to pick or so they say, my counselor told me she was going to automatically assign the classes based on school curriculum. Teachers, not all but most don't care. For one of my final assignments I turned in the same final paper for my other class by mistake, and I got 100 on it. After my associates I try to transfer, because their tuition rates are much more expensive than other online universities. Only 10 to 15 credits would transfer to 3 other colleges that I applied. Basically it's a waste of time if you are planning to transfer over. The staff does not legitimately care about you, the are always pushing you to start your next classes, and when you call them for questions they do not know anything. Is like they take Johny from the streets, give them a computer and tells him to interact. I have a Mac Book and they told me that it was going to be fine, because they used both formats. Come to find out when I started the teachers could not open my files on their computers because they where on a different format. I failed both classes and had to pay my employee all the money back. So just a heads up, they really don't care about you or your education needs."

"I would not be in the job I have today without my degree. I am currently in a two year graduate intern program for the Federal government with pay."

"I found a job in no time. No matter the school you attend for IT, certification is helpful. I am doing very well in life by going to UOP, but I also have certifications and extensive work history."
