They'll tell you you can get online whenever you feel like it to take your classes. But then the teachers will give you assignments on days they feel like and just give you a zero so you actually fail your classes. Do not go online for your our fail.

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... Read More

I should have read reviews period! The enrollment reps and instructors are great along with the online format. BUT the financial department is a joke! You get told over and over different things that aren't correct and then next thing you know your being pulled from classes because they didn't get documents that you had sent multiple times. So now me, a straight A student, and I'm suppose to be held back and wait for classes while these idiots wait for the same documents I sent. Which causes me to... Read More

Financial Aid, and Academic Counselors have disappointed me to the max. I am completely in awe on how negligent they are with the students once they are enrolled and receiving their check. It seems as there is a disconnect with management because the way my account was handled was frustrating. I don't trust these people at all and I am glad I am looking into transferring out. If they would have the same work ethic as the enrollment counselors i believe the school will have a better shot at a higher... Read More

1. Courses were relatively easy but the constant checking in was obnoxious. 2. Hardly any communication with classmates or professor even though they stress that "teamwork" is important. 3. Never received Financial Aid money (but I'm still paying it off to this day because it was reflecting negatively on my credit.) 4. Hassled for first semester tuition before first semester was even over... 5. Was told I could not continue the second semester without paying the first semester's tuition. 4. Financial... Read More

I enrolled into the UOP and attended for my associates and had no problem with it. During this time I was enrolled in the 9 week courses and enjoyed having the freedom to work on my own time and schedule. I was able to access my class online and download my books to my computer. I graduated in 2015 and enrolled again to earn my bachelors and the changes that the UOP has made has me looking at other schools. First you can no longer download your books as a PDA file to your computer now you have to... Read More

The associates program is ok, however I'm not touching there bachelors program at all it's just to high. The Associates program is $10,000 per year then the bachelors jumps up to $16,000 per year that's a big gap not to mention your working harder in the associates program your taking 2 classes at a time. I only did the Associates just to get a feel of the university I honestly loved it, but for the price you can find something a lot cheaper and a lot better. for my last 4 classes my financial advisor...

As a current online school, I must say that it is not fun, nor does learning online, stimulate any part of your learning. Teachers are severely out of touch with students. I feel that the teachers take their online teach jobs as if they were writing a blog. Send a quick message and move on. Give directions of what they want and move on. I have requested to switch my program and I was notified that finance did not approve it, and now they will not write me back with an answer as to why.

I have wanted to go back to school since I graduated high school (2007). My sister started at University of Phoenix and she encouraged me to continue my education because it was so easy for her. So I finally decided to do it and she was right!!! My adviser was incredible, she helped through every challenge that came our way and was no stress at all. Now I'm starting my first year of college in April 2015 to pursue my associates degree in the medical field so I can help provide for my family and they... Read More

The work is hard but if you make the effort and maintain a rhythm things will become much easier as you grasp the system used. The student financial services are awful, they ask for the loan for you, yet through the term they ask for more money. In fact, I am currently attending the school for my BA, yet I have been out for a month because the financial administration has me on hold and have been unable to go back, and made me write the same statement over and over. Unfortunately the school focus... Read More

I think before people choose to study online, they need to consider how much harder it is, especially if you have a full time job. Not only is it hard, but if you are just starting, it is usually best to consider technical schools that get right to the point, instead of taking all of these classes that cost thousands of dollars and will not benefit you in the long run. I am taking am working on getting my associates in arts of business and I have yet to take a class that has anything to do with business.... Read More

What they do not tell you is that they will work your class schedule to where there is a class left over to where you are not 'full time status' and you will have to pay out of pocket for it. But every check they send of 'extra money' should have been saved for the extra class that is not covered. They do not tell you this. Its just another way for them to get more money out of you. Then when you have to drop out because you cannot afford to pay $1200.00 out of pocket they will send it to collections... Read More

When I graduated from high school I was on my own and working two jobs. I had decided that I was not going to be able to go to a college campus full time and still be able to provide for myself. I decided that my best option was to take online classes. I began my degree in late 2010 and ended early 2014. Normally for an Associates degree you would only take 2 years to complete, but I still have alot of bumps along the way. My couselors were great. They understood what I was going through with changing... Read More

I actually enjoyed my time as a student with the University of Phoenix. Although, it was was a bit high in tuition, but overall, it allowed me to be able to work and complete school at the same time. I just wished I had more funds to complete school, however, it was great being a student with UOP

I really enjoyed attending the University of Phoenix Online Program. I was able to keep up with classes, work a full time job and be a single mommy to an amazing little girl. I felt very motivated because I knew the classes I was attending would be very beneficial to my future endeavors. My academic counselor and financial aide adviser were always available when I needed them which made me more secure. I would recommend this University to anyone interested in taking online classes.

I keep reading all of these post about how there is no help and they failed because they didn't receive any help. This is college people, if you can't learn on your own then maybe you shouldn't be here. I think the people complaining are the people who thought University of Phoenix is a paper mill. You have to work hard and study long hours in order to receive a good grade. If you receive good grades then you do not fail and you will not have to take the class over.

I have learned a lot from the education that I have received and I have already landed a great job because of my enrollment with University of Phoenix. The tuition is crazy high but it that's of with me because the schedule works with my busy work hours. Bottom line, I would recommend this school to anyone who is self driven.
