"I do not recommend anyone continuing their education at this school.I enrolled in this program so that I can move on to the next stage in my career. It was my only option. The enrollment counselors make it seem like this is the best program for adult learners.However, once in the program some of the instructors are downright rude and treat you like children instead of adults.Majority of the instructors do not know how to teach and the ones that do are somehow quit. Know for a fact that favortism which is the cause for good teachers to leave and they promote the ones who are not so good. Quite the contrary of the last program I was enrolled in previously. I do not plan to go back to this school as they have burnt bridges with me , including financial aid which you have to stay on top of because things are always changing and its some dishonesty there as well. See the past lawsuits and complaintsfrom students. I am happy I am done with the program and it gave me the chance to still work and go to school but that is all. The rest is just downhill. Would not recommend.Look into other programs."

"I received the masters degree in nursing at University of Phoenix. It was such a great learning experience. Everything they taught me, I was able to apply in real life. Like any school, if you put in the work- you will receive the knowledge. I am not sure why people are putting this college down. I work for a company that is a national giant and University of Phoenix is one of the few online colleges that my Company recognizes and provides reimbursement towards classes. The instructors did an amazing job teaching about research methodology and were engaged, polite and supportive. The university helps connect the students with a mentor and provides all kinds of online tools and an impressive library which continue to be available to the alumni even after graduation. The degree paid back in spades. If I had to choose, I would select University of Phoenix all over again!"

"I will begin by saying that enrollment was seamless. Financial advisement was always available and my counselor was attainable at all times (in the beginning). I found classes to be simple - not sure if it is because I never found school to be difficult or just because the courses were easy. Either way, they don't require too much brain power. I was forced, by personal reasons to take a break between my final Practicum I and Practicum II. I went into Practicum II with a 4.0. I lost points on a paper for not having feedback from my professor from Practicum I - well the class was 3 months earlier and i did not have that feedback. My final paper was graded and I ended the class with 0.3 points less than a A. I was given an Aminus which dropped by GPA down below a 4.0. I asked....no wait, I begged the school to reconsider and they basically told me that there is no different between my grade and 4.0 and not not worry about it. My instructor told me that she could no re grade my work - which is a lie. I am so upset with this University. Yes, I sound like a baby... No, I dont care. I worked hard for that 4.0. My reviews are just beginning... Love, An angry student"

Writing Matters! - 6/27/2017
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013
"I attended the University of Phoenix online for my bachelors of science in nursing (BSN). I was a registered nurse but I wanted to further my career because education is extremely important to me. I had a great experience going to school for my BSN. I feel it truly made me a better writer. I was required to write an essay every single week, and even though I dreaded writing one so often, it benefited me tremendously in the long run. Now I'm going to school for my masters in Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) and it's making my transition so much easier. I have made straight A's in every single class, including the weighting portion. I feel the University of Phoenix made me a better, more educated nurse!"

"I should have heeded the warnings of others who have studied at this "university". Every single step in the process of application, study, and follow up has been a complete and utter nightmare. You will have people calling you daily, and if you even mention that you aren't interested, they will quickly turn on you and be rude and disparaging. It boggles my mind that this "university" is still open. I think the icing on the cake of an absolutely horrific experience was finding out the instructor that taught my class (who constantly denigrated his students) has had his teaching certification PERMANENTLY revoked in the state of Florida for the following: writing checks out to cash for the charter school he started, continuing to employ a felon after he was made aware that the person was a felon...the list goes on. You will not have an easy or enjoyable time "studying" through this fake university. There was a single course I needed for grad school, which I was able to complete in 6 weeks instead of a full semester, but having been through it, this fake university couldn't pay ME to take another course here. Please save yourself the 6 weeks of torture, and go somewhere else."

COMPLETE AND UTTER SCAM - 3/14/2017
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"This is a great school if you're not trying to actually learn anything! In the two years I have attended I have not been challenged once! I have never gotten below an A even if I do not complete the work to college standards. They have created their own APA format. They do not enforce citations and plagiarism is everywhere. Their course material is outdated and biased and they never fully teach you the subject. How can you learn an entire subject matter in 5 weeks and be considered anywhere near ready for the workplace? I have never once even taken an exam! This school is a joke, a scam, and for a $60,000 degree I should be learning SOMETHING. Don't waste your money on a bogus education! Go somewhere that is actually worth it!"

"I really enjoyed the University of Phoenix, I attended once a week for 3 hours in the evening and had in class time with an instructor and then a week to work on assignments. This schedule worked well as I was a full time RN and going to school. I was able to finish in two years. I am enjoying my graduate degree at Western Governors University as it lets me move as quickly as I want through the program. I love their student mentoring program. I am assigned a student mentor who will stay with me and help me until I graduate with courses and whatever other needs I have. I am excited for this adventure in graduate school."

"Academic Advisors are very helpful. Great customer service. One thing I did not like was group projects and assignments. I found it annoying to complete group work in an online course. Being able to complete assignments at my own pace became difficult. As long you complete assignments and posts on time, then you should not have a problem graduating."

"I was supposed to graduate in 2016 with my MSN, all I had left to graduate was my final practicum write up and an ethics class....when I moved to WA state, UOP told me that my degree was null and void (over 35000 later) since they do not have an agreement with the board of nursing to complete and offer an MSN; I cannot explain the anger, frustration and disgust I felt with this university who has promised me from the day I started my graduate degree that I can study and complete any degree anywhere, which was very important to me considering I was active duty military;"
