Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

University of Phoenix is very strong for those of us that are working adults managing personal live, work, and education. The class structure works well, and quite honestly success at UofP shows that you are driven as you must be self driven to survive and prosper in an online environment. I am impressed with the support I receive and had actually had my adviser stay on the phone with me to help me complete some task or deliverable. They are motivating and understand the challenges to adult learners.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2004

I was introduced to University of Phoenix at the hospital where I was working the process was extremely easy, the counselors were engaged and understood my needs and I was able to start my program right away. The curriculum prepared me for advancement and the ability to teach at a community college.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I am middle of the road with this school. It was recommended to me by an associate that had just received her master's degree. I did not have the problems with financial aid, but I did get a new academic adviser about every three or four months, and I am not sure why. Aside from those stipulations, the real thing that left me up in the air was the education. Sometimes the "facilitators" or engaging and teach, other times they might as well not even be there. It is a "learn on your own" kind of system, which is fine because I am a very self motivated learner who has some common sense. The most annoying thing is the other students. Some of these folks probably should take another run at high school before attempting any higher learning. I'm no Einstein, but the majority of UoP students put zero effort into their participatory posts and team projects (it worries me these people are entering the psychology field). I would spend hours backing my posts with research and it would often be discounted by a barrage of personal opinions or experiences that reek of Dunning Kruger effect. SO ANNOYING! It bums me out that I had to do online learning because I am stuck working and can not attend a brick and mortar school.

Degree: Teaching

I love working with kids, and this degree will help me impact their future. Having this degre will also give me the ability to help children who are hurting, and are crying out for attention. I believe in changing the world, each child at a time! I expect greatness!

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2016

This school made it easy to work full time and go to school full time which is great. I have a few issue just like anyone would have about a school. I was about two classes away from getting my bachelor's when I got a call stating that can not continue until I pay out of pocket because my loan and grants have ran out, I was really disappointed. they didn't tell me earlier I wish they told me at least six month earlier so I can make payments for that class. every time I call or get a call it seems like I have a whole new team helping me which in reality they couldn't help. I want to go on to get my masters but phoenix is really hard to work with. they don't communicate with you well. if you want anything to get done you have to be on top of it and call them consent. that's not what they are for they are suppose to help and make it easier for you to work and go to school.

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015

UoP gets a bad reputation. I had a great experience. The advisors cared. The teachers were there when needed. They have math and paper resources. There is an extensive library. I learned more than I expected. It is what you put into it. Just like with anything else. One example I can give is I received my Bachelor's within a few months of "Facebook memories" coming out. I immediately noticed that my posts from years ago had very bad grammar and spelling. I had improved without noticing. Another example, I had a family emergency. We didn't know how long this would take to resolve. The advisor made sure I had months off just in case. He periodically checked in and followed the situation. They are compassionate. Last example, I can be in a conversation and know with confidence that I know a fact. Something I learned from a book or teacher in school. If I don't know something I know where to look. This school is worth the time and effort. I'm looking forward to obtaining my Master's next.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 1992

University of Phoenix has done right by me. I have never run into any problems with my degree being accepted. I worked in an industry that required a degree for over 13 years and for 3 different companies. This was not a degree mill. My classes were challenging and time consuming. I researched a few options and this was the best for my needs. I choose it because it was accredited, the instructors had real life experience in what they were teaching and I could make it fit into my schedule. It's been over 20 years and it's one of the best decisions I ever made. I went back and got an MBA many years later. I haven't used that as much but it was a good education. I did it for my own growth and to open more opportunities. In that respect I got what I signed up for and paid for.

Degree: Business Administration and Management, General
Graduation Year: 2015

I would not recommend this school to a dog. They will not listen to anything you have to say. I was done with my last class October of 2013 and a professor stated that I had cheated on a paper. I re ran the paper through the plagiarism checker once again to prove to the teacher that she was lying and she stated that she would not accept it as I could have written a new paper. I fought for 2 months to get them to remove that F off of my transcript. During 2014, I was constantly on the phone with financial aid and dispute management trying to get my problem resolved and they stated that I was technically academically suspended so they really could not talk to me for a year. I brought up the complaints that others stated and told them that I was obtaining a lawyer, going to the news stations for them to investigate, and calling the BBB. After about a year, I finally received my degree in 2015. Please and I repeat PLEASE do not attend this school. They do not care anything about you. I have never known a school where you could not talk to the president of the school if you had any complaints. This is the worst school in USA.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is a SCAM. I filled out my financial aid and for 3 months they been saying that they didn't receive my documents and I had to keep resending them. In On the student website it shows everything was submitted. I told them If they continue this game I will move schools and they said if I leave I will owe for the classes, that my financial aid should pay for but they are refusing it to me.

Degree: Health Information/Medical Records Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2016

Avoid at all cost!!! Instructors are more concerned with formatting of papers than actual content. All classes are English 101 classes but tailored to your degree. Financial aid department will not give straight answers to any questions. It has taken over 4 months just to process my financial aid... still don't have my overage which I need for supplies. I have been to other schools and this is by far the worst experience I have ever had with a university. I cannot stress enough how bad this school is.
