"DO NOT!!!! go there. The financial people will lie their ass off, and then then send you a bill for a class you wouldn't have taken had you known the truth. I know of a few people, and myself included who have had their financial aid office take out student loans without your knowledge. If you're a vet, they'll short you a week of certification for every class you take. There are a million other schools better than this one. Oh, and never be pissed at them and call them out. They'll just charge you , and give you an indefinite suspension."

"This school is perfect for a person that had a intense schedule. I work two jobs and travel a lot. On my busiest week I can still get my work done. While traveling I am able to read and take notes. I can write me essays out. Then place them in when I go on the computer. It can be done."

"My experience with UOP, was more positive than negative. The bad thing about UOP is the Team group. Not everyone is focus, and have his/her proprieties in place. I was lucky to have two team members who had strong leadership and pulled it together. We we're known as the Team Tiger's.. Everyone must take responsibility for not being able to be successful with his/her degree. I was working full-time when I was within my BA program, and going through a bad time in my marriage, which I was left as a single mom at the time. I don't feel confident in my skills not because of the school but because I didn't have the support system I needed at the time. They're bad teachers and good teachers at the end you're teaching yourself. The tools UOP provided are a great help. My financial aid adviser was my academic and financial aid adviser. She helped me stay focus, at all time, always remind me quitting was not an option. Today, I am thinking on going back for my Master's, but this time, I'm not working, and have the support system I need in order to learn the skills setting I need in order to enter my new career path"

"I did my research going into this college and the online reviews are horrible. Everyone who writes a review of University of Phoenix, they do not write flattering reviews for this college. With that said, I thought it was just a bunch of bitter students that could not make the best of his or her experiences. After all, everything is what you make it. I am in my fourth year of UoP and I hate it. I have been informed on a numerous occasions this school is not accredited. It just that simple. By the time you spend 60k and lose countless hours doing papers, powerpoint projects, and turning down social events; it's not going to matter unless you know someone who may know someone. Everyone has gone through the conversation that maybe if he or she had gone to another school, he or she may get another job but the blatant lies that are told by this university should be illegal. I am not sure if I do have a legal leg to stand on but I would do anything for this school to take responsibility for the lives that has been destroyed and the loans that are taken out. It's not just about the student loans. It is about a young woman living in the 'hood who worked like hell to work on her dreams. I just wanted an opportunity to make a decent wage and survive for my future children. Now I feel as though I am going to work as a bank teller for the rest of my life and that is bone crushing."

"I have been here almost three years working on my Bach. Degree.. I have an Assos. Degree as well. I LOVE IT. Yes, the classes are tough, and require a lot of time to study, but that's any school! It should be hard! I have had some instructors that were not hte greatest. but MOST of them have been great and answered any questions and great on feedback. When i needed a week or two off between classes, that was ok. I got married and took two months off for that time, no problem. So these reviews i see about all this crap, is bull! Prob just people who can't handle an online school and not having someone hold their hand. I work, and have step kids that i care for and stay very busy.. So.. I would suggest this school"

"The school appears to suffer a high turnover rate among its advisors. Some courses have gone smoothly, some haven't. For the ones that haven't, there doesn't seem to be any process in place to improve the situation. Just pretty much "ride it out", and move on to the next course. I got through the Associate's leg of my degree with few problems. But when it came to moving to the Bachelor's program, which they knew I wanted to do, no one contacted me for the transition. I ended up calling them as soon as I realized someone had dropped the ball, which ended up delaying my finances. Financial aid advisor responds as if solving problems isn't part of their job description. Overall, the program seems good, but the support is seriously lacking."

"It was the best experience. It allowed my to earn my degree without it interfering with my family and work. Plus it had some many tools and support systems that allowed you to succeed in your studies."

"I have been a student with them for the past 4 years. I have not had any problems with them. They always checked on me when the end of my classes were getting close to make sure that I was ok for the next class. My financial adviser always kept me updated on what I needed to do. The classes are good but it just all depends on what you are willing to put into your education, but that is like with anything, you reap what you sow. I liked this university so much that I suggested my son to start taking classes here."
My Review- ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!

"Every question has always been answered in a timely manner by everyone! I was very analytical about every detail and I believe every student should be. It took me almost six months to decide if I wanted to move forward with UofP or to begin with the local college. Needless to say, after my struggle with the pros and cons of each school, I started with UofP. The only thing I have not enjoyed was the "Learning Teams". I understand if teammates do not help on an assignment, their grade is lower than mine, but it is not fair for the person doing all the work on the team. Even though I have had complaints about the "Learning Teams", my advisor's have listened, given me advice, and has even encouraged me! I have no complaints with someone getting back to me, either by email or phone. I would and do encourage anyone to apply and go to this school!"

"I have read a couple reviews about UoP that are very judgmental and insulting. University of Phoenix is not my first University, before I became a USMC wife and a mother of 4 I went to Utah State University. Luckily for myself, UoP was willing to take all of my classes and so I chose UoP over CSSMU. It is insulting to insinuate that anyone who goes to University of Phoenix is uneducated. While going the last two years, I have seen many drop or fail out, the curriculum is the same as the state schools and therefore it is just as good. Not everyone can go to a traditional university for there education- so be mindful of those who are trying to make there lives better the best way they can. I would also like to say that I know a Mayor of a large city that got there Masters from University of Phoenix."

"After reading some of these reviews about how people rate the school negatively because they failed, that is on you not UoP. It takes a very motivated and goal-oriented person to do this online. To give low marks because of your own failures is wrong.GREAT SCHOOL! and I will be done with my Bachelor's degree in November so I do know what I'm talking about!"

"When choosing an online school for a bacherlors in psychology, I choose Phoenix, since the accreditation was a little better than other places. However, I believe Phoenix is not the way to go! Although I am receiving my BA and moving to a masters someplace else, if I had decided to stay to only a bachelors, I feel as I have not learned much other than to write better essays!The professors at Phoenix are more preoccupied with loading students with work, reading material, and writing a clean APA style essay, rather than the content of the papers. Since I have mattered this writing style, my GPA is very hight, but I feel as I just went through these paper without rememberin much.Try to get through your academic advisor or financial advisor... Good luck! They respond to their messages days latter and do not resolve anything, specially when dealing with money! I am in the military division which is a little better, but still... - this university is not worth the money, and I only recommend you enroll if you have a LOT of free time and patience to be writtinh papers after papers, nonstop!"

"I received an Associate of Arts in Psychology from Axia in November 2011 and I just received my Bachelor's of Science in Psychology from University of Phoenix this month. I was able to complete the entire program in just over 3 years....which was great and saved time. They also gave me credit for my military service and helped me with my GI Bill. You have to write a LOT of papers and learning teams are a pain. However, if you work hard, read your books, participate in discussions, and turn-in your work on time, You will succeed. I did and my 3.89 GPA speaks for itself.Academic and financial counselors change often but it doesn't really matter. They all have access to the same information. The only real negative I can add is that tuition and fees are high but no more than a state university. Between my GI Bill, Pell Grants, and MyCaa, I actually got paid to go to school. So how bad can it be?!"

"I graduated in November 2010 with a B.S. in Psychology. U of Phoenix is a school that forces students to apply and prove their knowledge through research papers.I have heard too many times how it's a diploma mill and a scam. I do agree that it's very expensive. However, just because it's a "for-profit" university making money, I don't believe it's any different that non-profit Harvard that has millions in endowments.Anyone who attends U of P must be prepared to work hard and be ready to be self-starting and self-motivating. There will not be anyone spoon-feeding you the information. If you're not willing to put your best effort into it, then you'd be better off going somewhere else."
