Student & Graduate Reviews (1,212)
I do not know if this only occurs in Hawaii, because of the small community. The University has offered no support to me. Going to this university has been one of the most awful experiences.
The professors are not truthful, and want to make themselves look good. It makes me sick to think that I chose this university over UH.
The school says they promote diversity, but the professors cater to thier own personal advantages. I am sick that my children have to grow up knowing I graduated from this pathetic university. In no way would I recommend this university no matter the situation.
The students in my group feel the same way!!
I have been a student at UOP for 4 years. I have worked hard to earn my degree. NOT once was I mislead or pressured into ANYTHING. My financial aid has come in like clock work and my counselors have been very supportive. I have had more issue going to traditional colleges when it came to lack of support and them screwing up my financial aid. This has been an all around positive experience for me. And I highly recommend it!
I have been in UOP for 25 weeks. In this time I have had three financial advisors. I was told by the first advisor G.S. that my first year would be covered by $5500 in student aid, pell grants and a small loan. I am finishing my third block now and called my financial advisor today. I was told that I cannot start my next block of classes that start in three weeks unless I pay $1950. I was lied to by the advisor to get my initial enrollment.
I received a letter a month ago saying I was going to get a check cut to me for a certain amount. Not only did I not receive that amount I now owe nearly $2000 before I can start my classes in three weeks. I hope this school gets in trouble for things they have done to families trying to get ahead.
I am currently a student at UOP and I feel there are some pros and cons to the program. I am ok with the program I am in "software engineering", but there are things I would change, and I'm sure any student at any university would want to change something, so singling out this school for that would be wrong.
Since I have not graduated yet I do not want to give a full review though. But I would like to request something from those who have graduated instead of spilling out a review of paragraphs of information that barely have any relevance to the actual courses they studied.
1. Provide your program of study 2. Did you graduate 3. Did the program help you get a raise or a job. What extra efforts were needed to get the job?
I am a graduate of UOP and my experience was nothing but positive. Compared to my experience in a traditional college, the experiences were equal. At no time was I taken advantage of, misled or lied to. If I had to do it all over again, I would still choose UOP. I am proud of accomplishment and to top things off; I have not had any issues gaining employment with UOP on my resume.
I AM CURRENTLY A STUDENT AT UOP, AND IT SEEMED TO BE A GOOD SCHOOL IN THE BEGINNING, IT IS UNPROFESSIONAL, THE ADVISORS NEVER KNOW ANYTHING, THE SCHOOLS MAIN FOCUS IS MONEY, MONEY, MONEY. I CANT SAY THAT ALL OF MY INSTRUCTORS WERE BAD BECAUSE SOME WERE GOOD, BUT HERE WERE OTHERS THAT WERE JUST RIDICULOUS. YOU WORK HARD ON A PAPER AND EVEN SUBMIT IT TO THE CWE AND MAKE CHANGES THEY STILL GIVE YOU A BAD GRADE FOR NO REASON AT ALL.
FOR THE MATH CLASSES THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE RESOURCES TO HELP STUDENTS UNDERSTAND. THEY WILL MESS YOU OVER WITH YOUR FINANCIAL AID, THE WORK LOAD IS CRAZY, THE COST OF CLASSES ARE REALLY TO EXSPENSIVE, DONT GO TO THIS SCHOOL OR EITHER TRANSFER TO ANOTHER SCHOOL, IT IS NOT WORTH IT AT ALL, THIS IS THE ONLY SCHOOL THAT HAS BEEN ON GOOD MORNING AMERICA, WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU.
I am an online associates degree student studying human services management, and I feel that this school is definately going to give me a great foundation for my ultimate goal in social work. The courses provided you with so much useful information, especially the core courses. The instructors are great, and there are such practical resources that this university has to offer, such as the student work-life enrichment program. I agree with other person that did a review when she said that this school offer resources that no other university offers.
I recommend this university to anyone! :)
University of Phoenix is a good school; some of this organizations employee needs positive customer service training. Please speak up and assist University of Phoenix employees in obtaining proper customer service training, students should not have to settle for rude or unprofessional service.
Coursework is great, online learning is especially great, make sure to stay on top of personal time management. Most of instructors are positive. I did have issues with a financial and an academic advisors, since he or she are assigned in teams. Please do not settle for less than top positive customer service.
These people work for us, so if any person (student) is not getting top positive customer service get his or her name and either file a complaint, also please remember to file praise(s) for he or she who deserve praises, thank you for your time.
I completed the international version of UOP Masters program and a Bachelor in Engineering at a traditional School. My work involved a lot of travel both domestic and international so it was impossible for me to attend a regular school. The coursework was challenging and most of the professors have experience working for big companies.
Most of my classmates were working professionals and some of them have one or more masters degrees. The school is expensive but is not easy, I spend between 10 to 15 hours each week reading,writing papers and answering questions.My overall experience was excellent and is paying back.If you are a working professional who can't attend traditional schools online school is the best option.
Just graduated yesterday with my Associates degree in business, I will be starting the Bachelors program sooon. This is a great school to attend but not for the LAZY NOR THE COMPLAINERS!! This is not like a regular school, it is designed for working professionals who have a family and other obligations. IF YOU APPLY YOURSELF AND MANAGE TIME WISELY YOU WILL SUCCEED AND LEARN A LOT. My courses were rigorous and extremely challenging. YOU HAVE TO BE IN CONTROL OF YOUR OWN EDUCATION YOU GET WHAT YOU PUT INTO IT!
This is a great school and I would highly recomend to those who are interested!
