Don't go! - 10/5/2016
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"The classes are okay the prices are outrages. Don't go to this school much better off finding a local school that offers online classes! I couldn't pay an outstanding balances in full so they said I could set up a payment plan and change the date of the payment and they didn't honor that and I was instantly sent to collections. Don't waste your money!!!"

"Like any Online University, even the ones associated with a big name brick and mortar one, you only get out of it what you put in. If you apply yourself and work with your classmates you will learn and grow. The faculty are experienced in the real world and come from all sectors of private industry. Personally, I enjoyed my experience with UoP and I believe it helped me do my job better and grow professionally. It appears that most that are dissatisfied dropped out, which is unfortunate. At the time I attended there were very few online programs and that was the only way to go to school and still work full time. I did get my Bachelor's at a traditional University, and my experience was just as challenging at UoP."

"These people are so incredibly full of it....... They cost twice as much as any other school and they lie about everything. I "graduated" back in June, its now mid October and i still have nothing to show for it..... I found out after my "last class" that I then had to take all these additional proficiency courses which I was never informed of until the end. Then they had the nerve to charge $50 for my diploma which will take another 50 days to get to me..... what?!!! They didn't already make $42,000 from me in tuition? Carrot and a stick if you ask me, they are just trying to figure out how much more money they can suck from me."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015
"I graduated in 2015 with a bachelor's in science:nursing. My experience was great. I attended both on campus and online. We were a fast paced program. 18 months to complete. I didn't apply for financial aid therefore i cannot comment on this portion. I found the instructors to be highly qualified and helpful. Many were either MDs' or PhD. For working nurses i don't know of a more convenient method. Unless you live right next to a college."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016
"I started my degree program when I was 39 years old. I was scared and worried, that because it was online that I would not be able to do the work or keep up. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it ended up being for me, and how much help was offered throughout each of my degree programs. The teachers are very helpful and always present when needed, as are the Academic advisers and Financial advisers. It turned out that the online program was just the right for me and my busy schedule. If you are looking to go to school and need something that works with your work and family schedule, then online classes are the way to go, and University of Phoenix is a great school. I have been offered many new and exciting business ventures since graduation."

A college that is full of potential opportunities that keeps you going! - 9/28/2016
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016
"The university of Phoenix provide excellent support to the students in learning and preparing them for the future in his or her career paths. Also, allowing extra resources for students to learn and experience in turning in assignments, researching topics, and communications is the key to success. University of phoenix is a great school and the comparison between online classes and in campus classes talks a lot of different experiences because is more convenience and you work at your own space. I feel the academic advisors are very supportive in keeping track of your grade progress between the weeks that are required for each class if they see any concerns they will put they effort in contacting you to see if theres any questions or concerns needed to be answer, and the honesty I love it. In the experience I went through I was in and out because of my health and having the supportive team made me keep going without having no excused for it in other words it motivated me more to finished faster."

"The University of Phoenix provided me with the flexibility I needed in order to pursue my degree post military. When beginning my journey at the university I had a plan to finish my degree and gain a quality education. I can attest that the university ensures those who want a quality education will receive one. Five week courses can be a challenging at times with the requirements. I personally took 2 and sometimes three course at a time so I would be overwhelmed at times but, the ability to excel in these course were worthwhile. The university has had bad press and a slandered reputation in the past and currently, however, the information taught and retained by me has provided me with a education and degree that I am personally proud of. The real world experiences I gathered from instructors and mentors I have meet through this university show that there is quality that can be found in for-profit colleges. In today's society a college degree alone is sometimes not enough to get ahead, you need the experience and network to do so. However, without the education you will hit a brick ceiling at some point, which is why I decided to not only complete my bachelors but, to also pursue my MBA. Education is very important and should not be taken lightly but, we must always remember to start some sort of career path early to gain experience in some capacity whether it be full/part-time work, internships or volunteering. With universities like Phoenix and others flexibility is possible and greatly assisted me as a full-time worker, husband, and farther."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013
"I really enjoyed the curriculum and feel that I learned a lot. The problem I had was that I signed up to go to class on campus. Halfway through my program I was told that I would have to attend the rest of my program online. I was really upset that I was being forced to finish my program online and the cost was more than the classroom setting, not to mention the additional work load. I was dissatisfied with Phoenix and I would not go back or recommend them to anyone!"

"I finished my BSBM and MBA with UoP. Not at any time did I have any administrative difficulties. I did have a couple of run-ins with dead beat team members. My only complaint is that when I identified these nae-do-wells the instructors were not as helpful as they could have been. In the BSBM program I was in the "ground school" so dead beats were not that much of a problem. I read comments from those who are complaining and I find most just a bunch of cream puffs that complain about everything. UoP is a regionally accredited school and meet the same requirements of other big name schools. My advice, stop complaining."
