"I love attending UOP online with my busy schedule of working and being a wife. UOP is a National accredited online college. The course work is very hard which pushed me to study harder. Don’t expect UOP instructors to hold your hand , this is something you’re going to have to do yourself as in the real world, and in the real workplace . UOP learning is intensive as is the work place . A Phoenix will fall down and rise up, However, it depends on your hard work and dedication to earn your wings. I had lots of lab training to complete for real world scenarios in programming language, cybersecurity, etc. UOP has stepped its college game up . I’m proud to be a Phoenix Graduate."

"I am very disappointed with the institution to the extent I wish I had chosen a different school. Before my enrollment, I spoke with Adrian who provided the information I needed to proceed with the enrollment process. Overall, I made my decision based on the price of my tuition- which was supposed to be $350 per credit hour, for every class, until the end of the program. However, since the beginning of the program, I have been trying to fix this issue. My tuition has been $398 per credit hour. I have spoken with so many different people, and nobody seems to care or be able to come up with a solution for my problem. The last person I spoke with gave me 7 to 10 days for the issue to be solved. Today is day number 15 and I have not received a call back to follow up on my request. At this point, I am not sure what else I can do. I need to get this resolved as I cannot afford the higher rate. Can someone assist me?"

"I attended the University of Phoenix and left due to illness and I actually went back to complete my degree. I transferred every credit into another College I applied to, and no one questioned my credits. The enrollment team accepted every credit into their University. My GPA was very high from doing the work. I actually went back to the University of Phoenix, because I realized the learning forum was much more organized and professional. It depends on the person and what they put into the learning experience."

"Stay away from UoP. When faced with a job relocation, the school refused to provide information I needed to complete my degree remotely. They then cancelled my program and told me 90% of my credits were invalid. The University of Phoenix is first and foremost a business whose intent is to get your money."

"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 must admit.. it truly is a great school. All the projects and homework assignments are clearly defined, easy to access , guidelines are listed for each assignment, everything is so well organized, and the website is super easy to navigate. My first teacher was a perfectionist and very critical but the staff are all so nice and they give you every tool you need to succeed. I’m very happy with my decision to go to UOP."

"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."

Degree: Human Services

"University of Phoenix was an amazing experience for me. I was able to take classes online,but majority of my classes were on campus. I was a single working mother that had a busy schedule, but the UNOP instructors and schedule was very flexible for me.The instructors were understanding,compassionate,patient,knowledgeable and experienced in the field of human services. UNOP on campus was a part of helping me overcome anxiety with speaking to the public while presenting speeches in class.It was a process for me, but I am grateful for all the learning tools, teaching and knowledge that I received while attending this university. I also met some amazing people in the classroom setting and had the opportunity to network and assist within the community during my internship with UNOP."

"I completed my associates and my Bachelor's Degree at this school and i really enjoyed my experience. I was able to work full time and be a parent while doing so. The school is expensive and I had a few teachers and assignments that i didn't like but I feel like i would have had that experience anywhere. Most of my instructors were knowledgeable and helpful. I was able to get support from my advisor when needed and i never had any issues with financial advisors. I have not had any issues finding work since graduating. I actually started a job as a Social Worker just two months after graduation. In my opinion if you are a self motivated individual who is able to read materials and get the work done with direct supervision you will find that a degree at this school is very attainable and enjoyable. I am currently looking to get my masters and would love to return to UOP but unfortunately, they do not have the degree option i am looking for. I would recommend this school to anyone who has a busy lifestyle but is self-sufficient."
