I should have attended a brick and mortar school. This university is reputable but the experience is horrible! Most of the teachers at the University of Phoenix are horrible. They change assignments at the last minute, expect you to ask the same questions multiple times to get one answer, are rude, expect a lot from you but don't give much in return. They say that they are there to help you succeed but when you ask for help of any kind you are met with vague answers and rude attitudes. I am at the... Read More

I believed every lie UoP's marketing department told me, and now I'm saddled with a big bill and no future. No one respects a University of Phoenix degree. Having attended an actual, respected University following my time at UoP I can tell you their courses are overly simplified and not up to any collegiate standards. They're made so you can easily pass them and so that they can take that juicy student loan funding. You want to know what great jobs I've had since graduating Phoenix? Taco Bell. Kroger....

I expected a lot from this program and as far as the actual classes go, I did get a lot out of it. However I attended this school based on the understanding that most of my credits would, however they don't because "we want you to take our classes". I seem to be having to do the job of the staff by going and following up multiple times only to still not have what I needed done done. It's been 4 months and I still don't have financial aid kicked in after I have called multiple times and every person... Read More

Okay so I did not graduate due to the cost of the school, which they don't tell you how much it will end up costing. I didn't even barely finish a year without it costing me $20,000! That is not including the cost that I had to spend on books, I picked this school since it seemed to be a little cheaper and they lead you to believe that it will be covered through FAFSA, but now I have $10,000 through FAFSA, $6,000 through a school loan that they have you pull out when FAFSA can't cover it and then...

I found the University of Phoenix to be extremely beneficial for the advancement of my degree. I am a single working mother, so attending college on campus is impossible for me. I was able to work on my own time, completing assignments when I had free time. I had excellent advisers that were able to help me achieve my educational goals. I earned my Bachelors in English, graduating with a 3,81 GPA, and have began working on my Masters in Secondary Education. I have found the course information to... Read More

I received my Bachelor's Degree in English from the University of Phoenix. I needed a career, not a job. I worked full time 12hr shifts. I have a wife and 4 children at home. My youngest angel has cerebral palsy and has therapies four times a week as well as a team of doctors (with associated appointments) to juggle. University of Phoenix gave me a quality education on my very tight schedule. I honestly did not know if I could do it, but I needed a change in my life, so I could provide better for... Read More

When I first attended this school in 2012 it was an amazing school. However, I later learned that is just the draw in. They assigned me the best academic counselor, I had great teachers, great classes, then all the sudden my beginning of my third year I got trash for counseling, the classes became mundane. In essence, I basically paid 51,000 to home school myself a Bachelors degree. The classes consist of Read the Book, Comment in Class, and write the paper. That is it. There are no lectures, no...

After beginning at the local Community College in Electrical Technology, I changed my major to English and received my Associates there. When I started at University of Phoenix, I continued in English, although my plan was to get a teaching degree. If I had gotten a Bachelor's in Education, I could be a licensed teacher now. Despite this, I enjoyed my classes in English that I did take. It allowed me to remember a lot of literature I hadn't though about since high school, which was 30 years ago,... Read More

I do not understand why the reviews on here are so bad. I have VAST experience with college as I have transfered between Comm Colleges and Universities. I live in CT, a TOP state for Education and I must say that I was challenged by my classes. I majored in English, which many people laugh about, and am going for a Masters with them as well. My FinAid and Academic Advisor were wonderful, i was always informed of my account, status and anything I need. I was always contacted prior to a class to make... Read More

Overall, the school was okay. Regarding Financial Services, well afterall, this is a for-profit college. Given that, it is basically a business and they are out to make money. There should be a balance to almost everything, so I am advocating that a quality education should be just as important as money to this school if not more important. When seeking profit begins to overwhelm the need to render a quality education, that is where the problem lies. I did get the sense that some of the instructors... Read More

My three year experience at the University of Phoenix taught me things I am still absorbing. I have learned more about myself than any other subject, and the abilities I have to learn and grow. I have received a promotion since I started school and also plan to attend graduate school within the next few months. My experience at the University of Phoenix affected my choice of career change as well. When I began, I had not considered a Master's Degree, but now, I want to "Pay it Forward" by obtaining...
