I am rather puzzled by the negative or poor rating by many bloggers about this University. I transferred from another Canadian University to complete my Master's Program and found the coursework, professors and learning to be exceptional. Perhaps the least favourite was the teamwork requirement when other students were not as motivated or interested to put in the effort to get good grades. In hindsight, that experience compelled a higher learning principle which often plays itself out in the work... Read More

Despite the comments of certain students, University of Phoenix does and only except official transcripts from other highly accredited colleges and universities, such as the the University I came from, which is Saint Joseph's University. Every writing assignment that is done must follow the APA. Guidelines set by University of Phoenix, and majority of universities and colleges in the United States. University of phoenix has strict rules on plagiarism just like all the other colleges and universities... Read More

Don't go to the University of Phoenix. If you are a good student you will have to do group assignments with truly mental students. The staff will not care if you are unhappy with a professor or are being bullied by other students. They will care when you need to pay them money. If you are stupid and want to buy a diploma, go to the University of Phoenix. I have quit the University of Phoenix and I am about to start at another university.

The University of Phoenix is a good school. Like any other, you get out of it what you put into it. Tons of reading and writing, so if you are an auditory learner, this may not be for you. I have to say that I would not have been able to attend a traditional classroom university because I have to work, and my current job requires about 60 hours a week. I attend online, at night, after working a long day, as do many other UOP students. I won't have too large a problem with student loans when I am... Read More

Tell us about your college experience.

My experience at the University of Phoenix has been a nightmare from the very beginning. When other bloggers say they are just "out for the money", they are not lying!! The only decent department has been the enrollment advisors. Everyone else ESPECIALLY the financial aid department is completely worthless. You try and get in touch with people, no one calls you back, they "sit on" forms they claim they have to have right away. My financial aid was supposed to... Read More

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Absolutely not! It was only after starting at the University of Phoenix that I happened to come across a couple of blogs written by a few students who said because the University's Master's program in Psychology is so general that they transferred to Walden University to get a more "specialized" degree in counseling and then for whatever God forsaken reason they came back to UoP to pursue a different degree. Bottom line: their Master's Degree in Psychology will leave you jobless with a bunch of loans to repay.

What advice can you offer other students?

To any student undergraduate or graduate, do your research before you just "pick" a school. I wish I had done mine. I mainly picked UoP because I had seen their advertising so much, and of course their website makes it look like it is the best online school out there. However, any school online or on campus should provide support from start to finish, not just until they get you enrolled and get your money. Go online, look at reviews, talk to people who have gone to the school you are considering, but by all means DO NOT choose University of Phoenix or you will be as they say, "up a river without a paddle"....

I have been attending UoP for a few months. I completed my first two classes Oct.22 2012. I really enjoy this school. Tuition is high, but I am hoping that it will give a great start off with my career.

My financial advisor has been very helpful. My academic advisor has aslso been very helpful. I started to transfer to a different school; due to the fact tuition is so high.

I have decided to stay at UoP. The classes aren't as easy as what some people think. It is actually a good challenge against yourself.... Read More
