Beware

"The University is very unorganized. The members of the graduation team rotate very frequently and there is no real support from them. There is no consistency among professors and the amount of work required for classes and no way to choose your instructor. The only thing I liked was the 5 week format, but the University itself leaves a lot to be desired."

"I would not recommend University of Phoenix to my worst enemy. I just completed my BSN through them, and it was an awful experience. My nursing classes were not too bad because the facilitators seemed to be more engaged, and concerned about the students and whether or not they learned anything. My non-nursing classes were awful. Particularly in regard to learning teams. I found that the students in these classes were there to just get by and earn a C grade, nothing more. Keep in mind that there are learning team assignments in every class, and if you get stuck with people who just don't care, you will end up doing their work as well as yours, or you will get a bad grade. This will bring your overall grade down, as well as your GPA! I am continuing on for a masters degree in nursing at a different online university that has no learning teams, thank God!! I am an independent learner, and I want my grades to reflect what I know, and my excellent work ethic. If you are looking for a degree program, go elsewhere!!"

"I currently had three associate's degrees from other colleges and decided to get my BSN through the University of Phoenix. The school makes it simple because they do all the leg work for you. They set up your classes and provide assistance if you need it. I graduated with my BSN last month and had an outstanding experience. I completed it in 16 months. This program requires the student to be independent and a self-motivator to complete it. I graduated with a 3.79 GPA and I am starting my masters program next month. I prefer online education so I can spend more time at home with my family and it works around my full time job. I would recommend an online program if you are a motivated individual otherwise I would say to go to class."

"I am currently enrolled in their rn to BSN program and the university of Phoenix lied to me to get me to enroll. I was told that all classes are 5 weeks long and there are no clinical hours required, and both were a lie. Some classes are 7 weeks long and 2 classes require 50 clinical hours and one requires 25 clinical hours. All of them cannot be performed where you currently work. Half of each class is group work so you have to depend on others for your grade. No one tells you that and most classes the group you are paired with is incompetent."

"This school is only interested in your money not you as a student. Student support is VERY poor. Once they have hounded you to sign up by telling you how great it is they leave you pretty much on your own. I was signed up for a second term and I contacted them to tell them I would not be attending I was still charged for 1 week of class, which I did not attend, and an E book that I never saw!"
Bullied robbed of education

"They seem to be after money. They don't care about the student, they bully and threaten. I don't understand how so many hateful people can be in charge of a caring and loving profession. I do not know of 1 student who can not wait to get away from that establisment. Students have to keep quiet about the bullying in fear of being dismissed with so much money and time already put in the program, to late to transfer. Try Regis they teach a real education."
