The UoP is the worse choice for an online school that exists. It's crazy expensive and the cost of courses continued to increase from the time I started my Associates Degree until I received my Bachelors. From 2008 to 2012, it increased probably $100 for each course in the Associates. All together with books, my total tuition for 4 years is about $60,000.

The same thing happened with my Bachelor's program too. I probably would have graduated at least 3 months before I did had someone done their job.
Plus, my Bachelor's was Information Technology/Support Systems, and almost every course I took was something in Communications. Half the teachers didn't seem to pay attention either because they would call me the wrong name and even grade my work incorrectly.
TIPS for those who are considering going to UoP online: DON'T.
I took the risk of an online school because I thought it would be more convenient with a full time job. It was mostly headaches and I feel like I didn't get the best education I could have. My husband does Rasmussen online and I think it would have been a FAR better choice. Oh one more thing! I graduated June 4, 2012 and today is June 27, 2012. I got an email from my counselor and apparently, I have one more class to take b/c of some mix up. A course I took in my Associates program didn't apply and they caught it 2 years later.
HATE HATE HATE.
