The University of Phoenix has some great courses however, information technology is not one of them. I didn't know any better when I enrolled in this course and they assured me the courses were updated frequently(laugh) The course was thrown together with anything technology that they could find, the course also offered a programming certificate this was a joke because an entry-level position in this field you need to be able to create webpages from scratch and from looking at photos of client expectations....

Well I'm not surprised after finding this website and seeing all the complaints about this school. I have to agree with most people posting on here that The University of Phoenix only cares about how much money they can squeeze out of their students. What happened to me was I started to take a math class that I wasn't to familiar with, so I asked my counselor if I could take the class at the end giving me time to do some workshops building up some skills before taking the class again. I dropped the... Read More

I'm currently a student at University of Phoenix. I would not recommend this school to anyone I know, not anymore. The financial advisors are terrible. The instructors were good, and the reason I stay until my currently class. She graded me base on her standard and not Phoenix university's standards. There was no engagement between me and her. According the the academic advisor she doesn't have to answer to anything I post... I don't know why I'm in the class giving her my money. I'm currently a... Read More

I am a veteran and this is a predatory school. They tell you all kinds of great stories to get you in then once you are in they could care less. I dropped an online class within the first week and because I posted 3 times ,that were marked unsubstantiated by the way, I now owe them over $400.00. They have severely messed up my Post 9/11 GI Bill because they keep sending in amendment after amendment even after I left the school. I may not be able to finish my degree because my benefits might be depleted... Read More

Unlike the negative reviewers here, I had a great experience with UoP. No problems with financial aid, and all of my advisors were fabulous. Additionally, they accepted all of my transfer credits. I transferred out of UoP after taking only 4 courses because I refuse to do the group work. Those who complained about it are spot on. There was no way I will let my high GPA be brought down by classmates. I've heard nothing but horror stories about the team/group work, so I ran as fast as I could. I'm... Read More

I have just completed my 2-year degree in the University of Phoenix (November 15th.) All the work has been through online due to factors in life that require me to take care of ailing family members. In total, I have spent $20,691.67 in tuition and "book material" (including $5,000 in federal loans.) Even if you are in the online segment of the campus, they make you pay for materials (being at least $100 dollars per course.) Each class was a little over $1,000 dollars to attend and you had to deal... Read More

I have taken classes at UoP on and off over the years (due to personal circumstances) and at first when I started in the Associates Program they called it Axia College. Apparently that is all apart of University of Phoenix now. I must say there are great improvements over the years at University of Phoenix with regards to the quality of materials provided and so far the quality of instructors (knock on wood). I hear this "for profit school's are bad" garbage all the time. Tell me what school is not... Read More

This school is nothing but a big money scam! I went and received my associates degree for IT and when I recieved my degree, I can honestly say I have more knowledge in biology and religions of the world. I too me through my entire program maybe 5 courses of IT and still did not get any knowledge of it. When it came time for me to ask a question to the "teacher", I most of the time never got responses back. If I needed a tutor for anything they had one assigned to me over the phone and it was always... Read More

UoP is a good school filled with busy work and information that is just under the bar of necessary to help you. I feel as though everything I learned was based on old outdated technology. All the work in any of the courses was busy work. They just recently changed their online campus website and it is a total failure, so many problems and no flow to the design. It was nice to be in school and get my AAIT. I am glad I did it, but I feel like I wasted my time learning about things that didn't help... Read More

I am one of the many who decided to go back to school in hopes of a better life for my family. I chose UOP because my employer provides a discount and pays for most of my tuition. I am also a full time worker, father, and husband. I simply do not have the time to go to a traditional university and complete my degree in a normal (five years or less) timeframe. For the people that claim their other credits do not transfer, they do. Probably not all of them, but a majority of the prereq's will. I prefer... Read More

I have to say that I did not have a good experience in this school. However, I believe it is because I need more hands on and visual learning then what is offered at Phoenix. I cannot learn by just reading a book. I did graduate but I struggled. My GPA suffered because of this. I had a GPA from a previous school that was a 3.9. I had to change my major to something that wasn't offered at the first school so I transferred to Phoenix. My husband obtained his BS degree from Phoenix and did great. We... Read More

For every poor review I have seen, I can also find a good one to match it. That alone tells me research is necessary for each and every prospective student. I will agree that this university, like most online universities, is not necessarily perfect for everyone, nor every degree. However, my experience, thus far, has been pretty good. I have limitations that put a serious damper on what I can and cannot do. Although not ideal, I searched for a program that would suit my needs. I did not jump into... Read More

I enrolled at the UofP after going to a junior college for a couple of years. I had amassed enough credit hours for an associates degree this way. Nearly all of my credit hours transferred over, which was cool. I found the writing assignments challenging at Phoenix, and the instructors were supportive. I didn't feel I learned as much as I did at the traditional 'bricks and mortar' school though.

The instructors weren't critical enough of my work. I felt like I got easy A's most of the time. At least... Read More

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 academic and financial counselors were always changing on me too which made it difficult to get answers. I never knew who my counselors were... Read More

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.

I earned my Associate of Arts degree from the University of Phoenix in 2011. My GPA was over 3.5. I signed up for classes for my Associates of Arts in Information Technology and completed all the courses, which was ridiculously expensive. They added a price increase between the first and second year of the degree that stuck me to finish without recourse because many of the credits would not transfer if I changed school when the increase came affective.

When I signed on I asked “Exactly what degree... Read More
