Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2018

Beware of this school if you are transferring credits. They will lie and mislead you and explain that it will take a couple of months before they can complete your credit transfer. They will lie about how many credits they believe will transfer over just to get you to enroll and pay for two classes before they can complete your credit transfer. Do not pay for classes until they completely finish the credit transfer. Understand that they dont accept all credits like other schools do. Learn from my terrible experience and save your self money by being wise and not being mislead by their lies. Wait the two months to get the results before ever taking a class

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2019

I initially started UOP at a local branch. Then the local branch was closed and I was forced to continue online. This was very challenging for me, however it was the only option as almost none of my classes would transfer to another University. Also as a Veteran that is receiving GI Bill Benefits, UOP is NOT recommended for any veteran. In four years here, I never get my BAH pay on time. UOP has a unique way to report attendance, and therefore your payments are always broken up by the VA and unpredictable. Also the financial aid is credited to any payments that VA has not made and therefore you get your financial aid in chunks and it is also VERY unpredictable when it will come. The financial aid advisors never can give you a straight answer. VETS, go elsewhere!!!

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: Education/Teaching of Individuals in Junior High/Middle School Special Education Programs
Graduation Year: 2020

I have attended UoP for almost 7 years now. I loved it and completed all the courses. It's when I got to the part where I wanted to intern at a school. The staff that were set to "help" me couldn't even get my name right. I got several confusing emails addressed to the wrong person. They gave instructions to complete papers and requirements. I figured no biggie, well then they told me I could not turn certain papers in without approval, then back tracked when I got mad because nothing was apporved and claimed they never said that. Its in email... kind of hard to deny it when it's in writting. I called many times and they continued to ask for papers I had already submitted, then said it was because they didn't have my file in front of them. I can't believe I it was great and then all of a sudden I'm disregarded and treated like a number. There is no one to call or help me and I've invested too much time to turn back. I am now possibly unemployed because I could not get a straight answer. Whatever you do don't waste your money here. You will pay way too much, for someone that should at least take the time to know the name of the person they are calling.

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: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

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.
