Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020

I do not have a concern with the teachers, the course work. My concern is with the relatively ignorant, very robotic, under trained financial aid team.I fell on May 16th I reached out to the school, wrote a long letter regarding my spinal injuries and the difficulties I am to date having with sitting, holding my head up, medications and side effects, etc. No one, not one person and I spoke to several, ever mentioned the option for a medical leave. I finally spoke with one of my instructors and he told me the process. Finance team are like robots with no brains (hate being mean) I gave it 100% and was successful in my class up until the last week. I failed the course, I just could not answer the questions. I suffer from nerve damage and I am still/currently in physical therapy and under the care of a physician. It is just sad that they are simply read off of the script people who have absolutely no problem solving skills. Even when transferred to the upper management team, they simply repeat word for word what the previous person stated. And the emails from this team are childs play. Never clear, precise and to the point. I am very saddened by this school I sincerely feel failed by them and their abilities to truly assist me in continuing my education. I am now forced to get my degree someplace else.

Degree: Mental and Social Health Services and Allied Professions, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

What a joke! The classes are high school level, the work is b******* in groups. You get paired with complete idiots who cannot form sentences, write paragraphs, or speak without slang. Your grade depends on others intelligence. You will never get work and you will get laughed at having a degree from here. It is a joke.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2008

This is the more stupid and corrupt institution that I have ever witnessed in my 15 years in the business world. I was unknowingly dropped from my class just because I had all my work done ahead of schedule. I have never witnessed such b*******. I submitted all my work on a Monday. This included the 6 assignments for the week, 3 discussion posts, and also 4 other posts I made just because I am an over achiever. I then took the rest of the week off because I knew that my work was 125% done for the week. When I logged back in the following Monday ready to submit the following weeks worth of assignments I find out that I have been dropped out of the class. You have to post during 2 different days during the week or they will drop you and not give a s*** if you were out of the country and are therefore unable to post even if you wanted to. Being at the top of the class and an over achiever does not register with these people. I was apparently supposed to wait and post one of my already completed assignments on another day. This is the most a****** and a** backwards thing that I have ever witnessed. I would not recommend this school to my worst enemy.

Degree: Environmental Science
Graduation Year: 2010

This school is expensive, the classes are mediocre (nothing special), but if you call and talk to an enrollment rep they will convince you to go to their school, they will be super kind and great. But once you get the enrollment process going everyone drops off the planet. I had soooo many problems with my financial aid. No one knows what they are doing, and you never get anyones name its a different person all the time, they never follow up. I filled out a different paper every single day and every day I was told it was the wrong paper back in March of 2018. Now I just tried to give them another chance in sept of 2018 and its the same old bull. It feels like becasue they dont have to add their names on anything they dont care and just pass you on to someone else. It just isnt their problem. I had enrolled to go to classes in late July, classes started the end of September, and you would think that was enough time to get everything finished. Boy was I wrong, I emails 2 or 3 times a day and everyone that I talked to on the phone said give it time. Didnt hear anything for weeks, finally got 1 email back from god knows who saying everything would be done the 17 of Sept. just in time for classes. Well the 18th rolled by I had emailed about 5 times that day and then I finally called to complain the night of the 19th becasue NO ONE DOES THEIR JOB DOWN THERE. If you email no one responds, if you call everyone gives you a different story and you can even chat with someone on the website, but they just tell you to call. Smh. I am extremely dissatisfied and disappointed. Thankfully a lot of my credits from uop transfered over to my new school becasue I couldnt spend another second of my life on that school. They are purely for profit and dont care about their students ( becasue I had attended about 1 year before this incident). There are better schools to attend, save yourself the stress and money.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

I was going to this school originally however I decided to drop out after being bullied in my online class and the instructor critiqued me after I brought inappropriate comments to his attention. I followed the techniques that were taught in class for addressing a hostile classmate only to have the instructor declare that I was being demanding for expressing disappointment that the student in question (a teammate for a group project) could not deliver their portion of the assignment on time.

Degree: Database Administration
Graduation Year: 2019

UOPX has interesting classes when it comes to the Database Administration Degree program. We are able to select the classes that will allow us to graduate faster and or gain a certificate. However, sometimes instructors are not available when help is needed or take a day or two to respond. Especially on days that are not listed in their policies.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2007

I attended both; traditionally university and the UOP, and the level of education is very similar. Both have advantages and disadvantages but one thing for sure, at UOP I felt like the education was much more relevant to my degree. At the beginning, UOP felt exhausting but once you get a system down and organized, it was very manageable.

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2010

The University of Phoenix is the perfect school for an adult who is pursuing higher education but does not have the time to attend the conventional school. Because of the global demand for technology online is a great place to learn the use of technology for group chat and team meetings. The different time zones in the class and team setting give a real-life feel for the real world, especially when dealing with overseas countries to conduct business. The experience was great and the staff were very helpful and made sure you were prepared for success. The facility feedback was on point and in a timely manner for the turn submission in the next week. Please make sure you read all communication and all documents that you are required to sign because it is your responsibility, I learned that the hard way, but it just made me a better person. The great thing is the app so you can stay informed and submit from your phone, very friendly app. I am also getting my Ph.D. from the school, oh the library is awesome it has everything you need the website is full of resources to help the student to be successful. There are different school campuses in different states and online student can access resources when needed or attend graduation or conduct research. Overall I am having a great experience and I am proud to be a Phoenix still soaring toward my doctorate degree, so do your research before you register.

Degree: Business Administration, Management and Operations, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Phoenix is a challenging college. They push you to do your best, and the academic counselors always check in to see if you have any questions regarding your class or your future classes. If you put your mind to it, you can do it! I enjoy going to school here because not only was it flexible but it allowed me to work from home and from work during quiet hours. I earned my associate degree and is currently working on my bachelor degree. I find that most people who complains about the college always complain about the cost and financial aid. School is more than financial aid and getting grants, yes, the classes are expensive, but they tell you that before you enroll. All colleges have requirements they have to follow when concerning financial aid and grants, they go through the same process as other colleges. My advice is to go to better your career and not to get the financial aid or student loans. When you apply yourself, it shows, and by the way, LinkedIn have hundreds of jobs for students who graduate from University of Phoenix, you just have to apply yourself!
