Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2021

Admissions told me I was good to start classes, so I did. After I attended TWO classes, (2 months later) $2800 later mind you, I was told I needed to send in more paperwork. Long story short, they did not as accept my paperwork and was told I could not continue attending classes. Then they also did not apply my APPROVED financial aid to the 2 classes. I ended up having to pay out of pocket. My gut told me not to go there within the first couple of hiccups but I didn't listen to it. BE CAREFUL, it all seemed like scam to me!!

Degree: Humanities/Humanistic Studies
Graduation Year: 2015

UoP makes a big deal of its "academic rigor" but that claim is false and misleading. The work requirements for classes are far from rigorous; even compared with its own requirements from several years ago, in terms of both quality and quantity, the standards have slipped. Some instructors are dedicated and very good, but some are indifferent -- an indifference that was matched by that of many of the students. A third of the students in each one of my clasess walked out immediately upon being given credit for attendance. Many students could hardly write a complete sentence or spell correctly. If you want a 'real' college education, don't go here.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020

The primary challenge at this university at the Doctoral studies level is a lack of support from faculty and other advisors. The team learning environment for each class is encouraging and my personal experience is one of team support among cohorts.However at the doctoral level candidates are generally left alone to complete what is considered to be an extensive dissertation process.This is a down side

Degree: Accounting

The advisers at this school were terrible, did NOT provide any support or guidance. I went 4 months without hearing from my academic advisers after reaching out multiple times. I would not recommend this school for anyone for the price you pay to be under minded and neglected. Pursue a degree else where if you want a good education.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

I am very unsatisfied with my instructor. Instructors seem to have little sympathy or empathy for what their students go through on a personal level. This school is just interested in taking your money. Communicating with instructors is like communicating with a robot.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

I regret the day I ever enrolled at University of Phoenix. After taking a few classes, I decided this school and I were not the best fit, no big deal. It wasn't until I decided to withdraw that things turned sour. All the sudden everyone I talked to, once finding out I was withdrawing, became cold and almost impossible to work with. Every "financial advisor" I spoke with told me different things and gave me different amounts of money I owe. (Not to mention when I log into the site, it even tells me the price on it may not be accurate. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE? I WITHDREW BACK IN FEBRUARY AND IT STILL ISN'T ACCURATE NOW IN JUNE?) I have called MULTIPLE TIMES to set up payment plans with someone on the phone and was told that it was complete, but no one has ever taken my payments (if you don't want my money that's fine, I don't really want to give it to you. But this school isn't going to ruin my credit). I was then told after about the fifth or sixth call to set up my payment plan that I could do it online, so I tried. And it told me for EVERY card I tried to add that my card had expired and couldn't be used. I used my first card that doesn't expire until fall of 2018, then tried another card that didn't expire until summer of 2019 - so tell me how exactly those two cards don't work for you? Nonetheless, this school has been the BIGGEST pain to work with, and I still have not had my issue resolved even though being on the phone with people at least 8 or 9 times. Run - don't walk - away from this school.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I was being pushed by my chain of command to get a degree. We desperately needed officers at the time. I will say I did not do enough research. I had not been in high school in 15 years and was looking for a program to help me consolidate the random credits I had learned from several different community schools. No one told me you have to get at least 60% of credits from your gradating school. No one had ever explained that there is a difference between semesters and quarters. I had no idea there was actually very little you could do with a Bachelor's of pscyh degree. I really went into this very blind. I have a traumatic brain injury, was still in the military, and I found the program to be very easy... that however is not a good thing to me. I think that a college education should be hard. I do not feel like I was challenged or that the program made me prepared for continuing. I also do not feel that education should be so expensive. I will probably die before I pay off my student loans, and I wound up with a degree most schools scoff at. I think if you have the time and the resources you can do better. I honestly had like zero conflict with the instructors. I think everyone was very nice, but I was not going to school to make friends. I was going to get an education, and to further my military career. Again, I think that if you are not being pushed into a program you should take the time to speak with a career counselor that does not work for the institution.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019

Being active duty military my time is limited, and like anyone else who is taking time to work on a degree while fully employed or raising a family you have little time to spare.... I am utterly appalled by UOP and how they are handling their finance department. I can not explain without rambling on at this point about how disappointed I am with them and how they've managed my money and wasted my time, two very valuable things. I use to recommend UOP to my shipmates in the military and even considered myself a unofficial sponsor until their finance department and their system changed. Now they can not even correct a tuition issue with for a military member without having to waste hours trying to solve something that should be simple for a finance issue. In the military we have a saying that the admin's like to use as a joke "It's the members responsibility" well UOP does not make it easy on you to manage your own money. You have to make follow ups and they won't tell you when something is wrong or something needs to get resent. I do not recommend UOP anymore to my shipmates or to anyone. Good job UOP.

Degree: MBA in Accounting
Graduation Year: 2014

The University provided a well rounded experience. I learned a great deal about the analytical, functional and ethical applications of business. I really hope the University cleans up it reputation.Please take a moment and review the hyperlinks highlighted in the linked document.
