UOPX was the best experience ever! From the beginning to the end. The courses were always structured, the professors were always providing feedback, responsiveness was always on point-you never had to worry about no response, and the teams that provide you advise, registration, enrollment, financial aid etc were always responding timely. The best part for me was that your advisor would call to check on you. My advisor Bryan was great! I can say so many other great things about this school! I would... Read More

Greedy, uncaring, liars, and no commencement ceremony unless you are in Phoenix or California. A complete waste of my time and money. No one outside of the school respects the school or the degree you get. Pathetic! They didn’t tell me I would have a virtual commencement until three and a half years after enrolling. It was a complete surprise but they knew all a long.

My experience was great. I did not have any issues throughout my time at UOP. The team projects were overwhelming at times but I was able to push through. UOP helped me advance in my career and I would definitely recommend it to other hardworking adults.

DO NOT use this school if you are planning to work online. Let me start with the courses and teachers for about the first year were wonderful. They were extremely helpful and seemed to actually care. I'm currently coming up onto my third year at the college and all three years I have had the worst experiences with the financial department. Noone in this department knows anything about what is going on and feeds you with a script. I was told to fill something out on the IRS website and when I asked... Read More

Online college is what you make of it. If you do all the reading and research for that week you will do well and yes you have to do eight participation each weeks and their is papers to write every week. Taking these courses made think out side the box. I spent a lot of hours reading other websites. The classes helps you to do research and dont like to read you are not in the right place. I have had teachers that I liked more than others, but I am not in school to like people. I am here to get my... Read More

As a previous graduate of the University of Phoenix's bachelors of science in criminal justice/administration, I can assure everyone interested in attending this university that it is well worth it. Because of the extraordinarily experienced and professional and instructors that they provided, my experience was both personally and professionally rewarding as a Military Police Officer. Lastly, I would like to add that the school has and will always continue to be regionally accredited, as I am now... Read More

The University of Phoenix is an amazing school to attend if you have a busy life. What I liked the most about this school is that I felt like I was still able to get stuff done at work and at home without stressing myself out to much. I am the first in my family to obtain a degree and I strongly believe it was because of the friendly school environment and the amazing staff at the University of Phoenix. I just gradate with my B.A. and I will be starting my masters next month all thanks to the confidence... Read More

I attended the U of P from 2015 through Feb of 2017. My experiences with the instructors and students was diverse and interesting. In the beginning I did not like the team assignments but found that by the time I was in my senior year, I preferred the team assignments over the personal assignments. I work in prisons and can honestly say that I have used my BS in Organizational Security and Management quite frequently. I am currently researching on-line universities to further my education in pursuit... Read More

The school was a great to me the instructors were well rounded individuals, my academic support was excellent; financial was not so good. the only thing that I didn't like was the first assignment has to be done on the first day of class; I never understood that how can a person complete an assignment if he or she does not under it.

The University of Phoenix was challenging and offered one to ensure they are understanding the material. Debating and facing challenges provided an edge to the learning experience at Phoenix. Accepting what is brought forth was unacceptable, but questioning and understanding all sides of the topic at hand is encouraged. It is a difficult process to learn at an advanced level and demanding schedule, but it is well worth it.

This college is all about what you, as the student, put into it. The UOP offers a lot of resources for their students, but some people are naturally not self motivated. You will have to earn your grade. The degree is worth just as much as any other accredited university. They make it painfully slow, just like any other college. Don't sign up for online classes if you have poor time management skills. My academic advisor is fantastic, but my financial advisor is terrible. I am halfway done. My employer... Read More

This college I recommend to anybody they are great at helping you in achieving your future goals. They call once a week every month or so and just check up on how you doing in school or just seeing if you need help in anything. They are great at communicating and keeping up where you are.

Obtaining a Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice Administration at the University of Phoenix has been a great opportunity for me. I am a true believer that when you want something bad enough, you can achieve it. When obstacles stand in your way, you can achieve it. I say that to say this..No matter what learning disadvantages you might face, you can achieve it, when you believe in yourself. I am a Phoenix!

!!!!ATTENTION!!!! Do not enroll at University of Phoenix! This school is a scam. The financial dept. Will send you to collection with no reason. The do Not care about students the only thing they care about is money and I speak from experience! I took 1 class and i had to withdrawal from school because it is very poor education. Do not make the same mistake and end up in collections with no reason.

I am writing this a few years after graduating from my online program. The program consisted of reading, some research and a lot of writing papers. The college, compared to other schools, has a very low expectation for work. I do not recommend this school for a career and especially if you wish to continue in education. The quality is poor and you will be behind other graduates.

I read a lot of bad reviews. My honest opinion is that the school helpled me with my goal of deceive my bachelors. I was a busy mother and i feel online courses helped me i could get on when i wanted n submit work. We had to work n teams and it was something new to me, but over all worked out great. I even took rime off a few times during my two yrs of school. If your ready for a degree and ready to be dedicated then i would recommend coming here i loved online.

I would advise anyone considering attending UoPx to really consider if they are willing to dedicate the time that it takes to excel in your classes. I am enjoying my time at UoPx and I graduated this past May with my Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice and minor in Cyber crimes. My academic advisors are usually the absolute best. They would follow up with me periodically to make sure that I was okay and to track my progress in the program. I was able to cut a year off of my time in pursuing... Read More

I am fortunate that I am able to use my degree and it will eventually pay for itself however I walked away with almost a 40k loan had I done my research accordingly, I would have gone to another school and paid a fraction of the price. I would say that I had a number of different advisers and they weren't always on the same page specifically the finance department.

I am about to graduate from UOP, and I have nothing but good things to say about my experience. I find it troubling that many reviews state that they did not get any help from their instructors. We have to first understand that the instructors of online classes also have other careers that they have to put their effort into, and they still find the time to help each student when they are needed. As for me every instructor throughout my two years at UOP was great. They replied to any problem that... Read More

University of Phoenix is a great school! I graduated in June of 2016 and let me just start off saying it was one of the proudest moments I have experienced in my life. During my time as a student I had all access to the resource center on campus which was located at a convenient location in downtown Philadelphia where I could come straight from work up until 10 pm on weekdays and evenings on Saturday. My instructors were helpful, personable and understanding at all times. If you are a person who... Read More
