"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."
