"UoP was affordable and curriculum was easy to follow. I completed most of my classes in the classroom, but because of CV19, I my last 4 classes were online. ,"

"I took UOP because of my work schedule. It was difficult and different. However, it’s helped me get a better job and the school really works around your schedule. I think it just depends on who is your counselor and who are your professors. Is it pricy? Yes, but it’s very flexible. Now my daughter who is close to entering college is thinking about flexibility too. She is already taking college courses, from a community college, while in high school. When I help her, I notice the the same style, format, etc. as in UOP. So I’m seeing that other colleges are starting to be flexible too. Some students don’t learn from UOP but I did and took it seriously. I was worried about their accreditation, but I did a lot of digging. They are accredited but I don’t think for all their degrees they offer. Everyone has to make effort and not just assume. Its life."

"Since graduating from the University of Phoenix, I have applied to at least 30 entry level jobs in my field of study. Not one of them has called me back for an interview. Also, I have tried searching for careers through the resources on the university's website and needless to say. That has also left me at yet another dead-end. So now here I am with a degree, no job, and a bunch of student loan debt. In my educated and experienced opinion. This degree isn't worth the paper it's printed on."

"I have had a great experience with this school. The assignments were challenging. I earned both a bachelor's and a masters degree and continually get job offers because of them. I continually see negative comments about the UOP and can't help but wonder is it the individual that's lacking."

"Okay, I would like to start by saying when I read some of these reviews it is as if I am reading the sad excuses team members would make to not participate or do the work effectively at school. Like others said, you get what you put into it. I am studying a topic that is interesting to me but also that I have some knowledge on so it has been helpful and insightful. I have had no problems with this school and immediately learned how to work with blackboard. Teachers DO NOT post assignments last minute, they are posted immediately when the class begins so students know what is coming up. Always be aware that people want things to come easy. I have watched several people drop from University of Phoenix purely out of laziness and not wanting to put in the work. Sorry, but again I have seen way to many people at this point complain about papers all because they couldn't understand basic directions or pay attention to the assignment deliverable. This is college, whether it is online or not, you have to read, watch any videos provided, study, contribute, participate and communicate in order to do well. I have had plenty of classes I did not like because of the topic at hand and i have also had professors that were very intense and fickle about how things had to be, but you adapt, you figure it out, because that's what you do in the real world. If you are not willing to put in the work it is not a schools problem, it is absolutely yours. This school challenged me and I am thankful for those tough classes and teachers because I actually learned."

"Well let's just say I paid for, worked extremely hard, and this school takes no bribes. After what happened with elite schools there's not much to say or make fun of any more..a graduate should be respected and judged on interview, resume, and other character points."

"I am unsure what rating to give this school. I have just started here and so far it is cool. The thing I have a problem with is the finances. I am a veteran and I am using my education benefits so of course I receive bah but the school only reports a certain amount of days out of the month to the VA even though I full time therefore I do not receive my full bah amount. Typically 6 days are left out. I have researched and other school do not do this. I am unsure why UoP does. Just a heads up to the veteran out there using post 9/11 or Voc Rehab."

"Honestly I find their online forum to be betrer than most online schools. I llike rhe structure of everything but what is upsetting for me is the financial aspect. More importantly the lack of assistance should things become difficult. I am a full time stufent while workikg full time in an executive management position. So itnis taking me a while to earn my degree while balancing both. Through financial aid they have collected more than $30k for my schooling. I am now down to about 10 courses to finish and earn my bachelors degree in business management, and am to the point where i have to pay some oop for courses as federal aid onmy gives so much. I ended up with a $3k balance which was hard to lay as a single working woman, took me a while but i was able to borrow from family and get it paid. I was out of school for a year, now that it is paid and trying to get back in they are not helpful at all. So basically they collect over $30k on my behalf, i dont have a degree and now they ignore and are not helping or responding so i can get back in class? Just seems like very poor business practices and a lack of care as to the education process. I mean lets be honest over $30k is ridiculous pricing for an online school anyway so to abandon students at the tail end because they took a little time to pay a balance that truthfully i dont even know why i would owe. The federal funding they get should be more than sufficient to pay for the full degree program with nothimg out of pocket. Dissapointed in their business practices. But i have no choice but to beg these people to respond and get me back in class since i and the government has invested way too much at this point. Just beware. If you are looking for a school to attend online i woild not pock UOP you will likely regret it and you may end up laying without ever earning the degree. Check your local colleges for online schooling or other online schools."

"They'll tell you you can get online whenever you feel like it to take your classes. But then the teachers will give you assignments on days they feel like and just give you a zero so you actually fail your classes. Do not go online for your our fail."

"This college is the worst. First they deny my student loans so I end up with an outstanding balance that I had to pay off and then the push back my classes because of the balance even though I WAS paying it off. Not to mention the people in financial aid are rude and disrespectful and never actually do their jobs. Monkeys could run a better college. They are just money hungry a holes and need to be fired. Every last one of them. They messed up not me and then they jeopardize my future because they want cash they would have had if they hadn't messed up AND they want it out of MY pocket! Please tell me how I can pay you guys when I need LOANS to get through school? Huh?"
