Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2021

Far too much BS, i am two classes in and both have been about ``university success``. I am trying to FURTHER my education, not regurgitate basic facts and learn about how others feel about the subject. As of now between the class i have finished and the class i currently take i have learned nothing new except how homosexuals and immigrants are different but equal, the current class broadening those groups to include everyone. I understand online college is understandably new and a work in progress but at 1200 dollars per class i expected a university education from the word go, not rapid debt gain without benefit. To summarize it, i have spent 2400 dollars on 10 weeks of Social Tolerance classes.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2017

Non veteran friendly, when I was short notice deployed I was unable to drop class and was fined 750$. I moved up through the financial bs'ers and wrote the president personally he guarantees me a refund and shoots his financial guy an attachment to refund me of which I never got. I have a single class to obtain my associates that I already got a letter saying the degree is obsolete... 3 years and thousands of dollars wasted a bunch of Fake money hungry fools. Further teachers were consistently unavailable and seldom gave real lecture or insight... my education truly came from their online library and texts provided..... save your money guys, just go to the public library...

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2009

This is the worst school you could ever go to. It is a for-profit school and they only care about your money and not your education. You will carry unqualified students through group projects, so you get a good grade. Those people who gave 4 and 5 stars are people who work there. They have an army of people to write good reviews about their school. Worst of all, no one respects a UOP degree, so good luck in finding a job. There so many good colleges out there, and UOP is not one of them. I finished an MBA and started a Doctors but quite and went to Grand Canyon University to compete my Doctor's degree, and now people respect me.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

I am taking a Master's level Certificate. The book is great. The study is good, but the application of the learning seriously lacks. Accounting is about practicing for the CPA exam by doing the process, not by doing writing assignments. The grammar and knowledge of fellow students sometimes was well below a Master's degree level. My financial aide was messed up as well. It costs a lot of money and I am not getting what I should be.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Phoenix was challenging and offered one to ensure they are understanding the material. Debating and facing challenges provided an edge to the learning experience at Phoenix. Accepting what is brought forth was unacceptable, but questioning and understanding all sides of the topic at hand is encouraged. It is a difficult process to learn at an advanced level and demanding schedule, but it is well worth it.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

I genuinely recommend the University of Phoenix to those who hunger to improve the productivity of their organization and provide leadership and service to their communities. The education I received was phenomenal and comparable to my undergraduate experience at a California State University.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2017

University of Phoenix is a joke. When I first started I thought that these people were really nice and it would be a great experience. I was completely wrong. My first class was a required class about critical thinking and the university. The professor was awful. I would complete the positing requirements but would never get credit for it. When I would ask the professor about this he would tell me that I did not meet the requirements even though I clearly did. He gave me the opportunity to re-do one with his revisions and said he would give me credit for it. In the end he did not. I ended up failing the class because my advisor was never available and never called me. After I failed and found out I had to retake the class then they told me I could have withdrawn from the class. I had to retake it and pay for it again. All of the classes were easy and no matter what type of class you always had a paper not some other assignment that would have helped much better than a paper. In February I asked to do the English degree and said I would like to teach with this degree. They said that they would call in June when the financial aid year was up. In June when they called they then told me I could not do this. I would have to get a Master's Degree to be able to teach. Now that I have found a school to transfer to that will allow me to complete this degree none of my classes transfer. They were all considered electives and now it is like I have not taken a years worth of school when I did. I wasted my money and financial aid and they do not care. Financial aid department was a joke too. Never had the same financial advisor because it was constantly changing and they would never answer the phone. I never was able to choose which class I would take next they always chose it for me. Definitely would not recommend this school!

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2017

Dear Online Review Prospects, University of Phoenix is a great school where you learn exactly what you put into it. If you are a student who consistently needs your hand to be held to learn, this is not the school for you. Online school requires self-determination and a commitment from yourself to study, learn and do homework. I have read some of the reviews of how UoP is horrible and more. Well, I must tell you that these are the types of students who do not study. The education level is up to par with most traditional brick and mortar schools. I will tell you that the beginning classes carry some lazy and fairly undesirable students who do not contribute to the team assignments; however, the further up you go, you will find that most students are prepped well to contribute to assignments for the team. Faculty varies a little too; some of the professors are super achievers and schedule a ton of personal and team projects each and every week. Also, some professors will nit pick you left and right and you will never get a perfect score. Others, however, are a little more relaxed but carry themselves up to standard. Overall, I will grade this school a solid 9 out of 10. I would grade it a solid 10 if it was not for the team assignments. Some students are very lazy which sometimes makes it hard to achieve 100 out of 100. I will leave you with this note. If you are ready to work hard, without anyone chasing you around, this is definitely a school you may want to consider. If you need a personal interaction, you will have a hard time with online education.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

I went to the University of Phoenix (UOP) to become an elementary school. UOP taught the minimum of knowledge and skills. They do not prepare you for the tests (CSET, TPAs 1-4, or RICA) or teach you much on teaching. Because they do not give exams, there's no pressure for you to learn or study. I have finished all my courses in their master's program and received 3.83 GPA, but because I am having to learn reading skills for children on my own, I need to wait to take RICA. (Think about it, I finished all my master's courses, but I am not prepared to take the RICA? This is how bad this school is.) If you're considering going there, do some research and interview current students and, if you're serious, find if they learning as much as the students who are going to a public university) The government allows these schools to remain in business, but they and UOP know that UOP is a fake school.

Overall a great experience. knowledgeable teachers, challenging work, great feedback from professors. Technical assistance was available even in the wee hours! The price was fair and the expectations were high. I liked taking classes online because it was flexible. I recommend this school...
