"My experience at UOP was very good and the degree from UOP opened many doors. Some people enroll at UOP thinking its easy and later found out that it's not and never finish.I would recommend UOP to people currently working and with several years of professional experience."

"This school is a joke! I am surprised that they still have their accreditation. This masters program was ridiculous! I went to the Colorado campus and was treated like a child. The director of academic affairs was more concerned with herself than she was with academic affairs. The instructors have the liberty to call their students, lazy, complacent, stupid, elementary, and when the students raise these concerns they are called liars. There are absolutely no academic standards. This is because the instructors don't want to be bothered with teaching or grading. As long as you pay then they will pass you, most of the time with an A. Nothing was taught at a higher level then high school and this was a masters program!This school is all about money. That is all they want and the staff is trained to be bill collectors under the misleading title of "advisors". All they do is hound you about paying and threaten you with losing all the credits you have earned if you don't. Do yourself a favor and choose another institution to get your education. There are many many other legit online and ground campus schools. I promise you, you will regret chosing the university of phoenix."

"I received an AA History (cum laude) from San Jacinto State University in Houston, Texas and I was one semester shy of a dual B.A. Literature/Linguistics from California State University, Dominguez Hills in California.I graduated with my B.S. Management degree from University of Phoenix in 2011 and will complete my MBA from University of Phoenix in June, 2013.In every single experience - brick and mortar or online environment - I learned what I wanted to learn. Education isn't about being spoon fed information - it's about self-directed learning, applying yourself to something and actually doing the work.University of Phoenix will provide you exactly the education you want. The onerous is on you to do the research, read the materials, apply real-world knowledge to the coursework and work collaboratively to succeed. These are also the same traits you will need to be successful in life.I have learned more in my coursework at University of Phoenix over the past 3 years than I did during the 4 years I spent at community college and universities. As with anything in life - you get out of it what you put into it. Are you ready to work?"

"Great school! I went for my Master's Degree at UoP. Very convenient for those who work full-time and are looking to advance their career in any major. The teachers are wonderful! I like how they offer a variety of academics."

"I did my research just like you're doing now. Honestly, this school is the most popular of the online institutions and I went for it. Quick and easy enrollment and I paid through loans. I worked insane hours while overseas in the Army while full-time student.Very time consuming and can be very hard trying to meet the deadlines.This is college and for some of you, graduate school. Time to grow up and decide if school is right for you first before the college itself. This will require you to figure out a lot of material on your own, create a school/study schedule that works and be prepared not to have a life. It is up to you to make your life happen that includes school, career and everything in between. I have read so much wining and complaining on these schools and I laugh. I am gearing up for my PhD and I know that I have to make it all happen. This is not high school where people hold your hand and explain everything to you. That is what college is for. It teaches you to be a leader in the work environment, it shows employers that they can trust you can handle tight deadlines, there will be a standard quality of work that you will provide ect.My ratings: Quality of Instruction... Some of great some are not. Classes are only for 6-8 weeks so suck it up, do your work, participate in the discussions and you will be fine.Financial Aid....same as any other school I have attended (online & brick & mortar)Job Placement......This is just silly.....I dont know of 1 university that claims to offer job placement. You are in a pool of a lot of people getting their degree...welcome to the shark pool. Fight for what you want.Student Services....Offers aid for those that need studying tools and/or personal help. Also, I did have a problem with a couple of teachers but one in particular. I made a complaint because I felt they had no idea what they were doing and it got handled. Don't expect this to happen to you and I recommend if you run into a problem, wait until after the semester is over to avoid retaliation. This goes for every school."
