If you attend here expect no excess funds and higher priced than any other online colleges. They tell you weekly that more and more charges are being added to your account and when you do have excess funds they feed you lines of lies and you never receive them. I did 10 weeks and have dropped out TONIGHT after 2 months of them holding my excess funds for NUMEROUS reasons. I feel they are scamming... Read more

Do not under any circumstance consider going to this institution. I have attended school online with University of Phoenix for approximately 2 and half years now. Right from the get go I was misled on what was in my best interest. I was told I had to take 2 classes per 9 weeks sessions. As a busy family and working man, I certainly was not prepared for the workload 2 classes brought, and... Read more

I taught at UoP for several years. I received more than 900+ student reviews and EVERY one of them was fantastic but one. This was around the same time that the horrible PBS Frontline special come out on "for profit education." Then all of the sudden I got a "bad review." Then my class started to get audited more frequently then usual. Then I was given an "action plan" I had to follow before I... Read more

I was on a scholarship full ride and I still somehow have a bill in the thousands of dollars with University of Phoenix. My scholarship was a 10,500 dollar per yr. semester from my undergraduate studies coming into the institution! To this day I owe the University of Phoenix Thousands of dollars Plus interest. When I had federal aid that match Scholarship program funding studies. It was the Cal... Read more

I am about to graduate with UoP online Bachelor in Science degree with a major in Criminal Justice with a minor in Humanities. I have read almost all the complaints on here with this university. I can see the scenarios happening, however, as a long-term student, you cannot cancel your classes half-way through and expect no consequences, you cannot expect your advisers (academic or financial aid...

As many of you, I was what I considered to be "ripped off". My journey began when I was just 18 and in 2007. I was a stay at home teenage mother, and never had family structure or support. I had my GED and wanted to offer my child a better future. At the time, UOP was really one of its kind. I always thought education would be out of the question for me because I couldn't afford it. I decided to... Read more

There are so many negative reviews but i dont understand because i have had nothing but a positive experience. The advisors have been a great help! The instructors are highly educated and work one on one with their students with all kinds of helpful advice. The resources are amazing and the way they teach with fun interactive tools is awesome. I would recommend this college to everyone. Add comment

Still working on my bachelor's in psychology, not currently attending at this time. I worked my way up walked for my associate in psychology. I continued on non stop and my grades started to slip when I told my advisor, it was like well you have too keep going. So I failed the course, again expressed my worries about continuing, but I was pushed, and instead of retaking the course I failed, I was... Read more

I encountered a problem just prior to finishing my Bachelor's Degree at the University of Phoenix (UoP). First, the online institution was employing a teacher with an embellished record and potentially fake credentials who was not qualified to teach. I informed the school of the issue and of the teacher's ten year history of student complaints at three different community colleges. I later... Read more

I attended UOF from 2006-2008. I earned my Associate degree, or so I thought? My account was up to date and I repeatedly requested my diploma be mailed to me. I immediately transitioned into the Bachelor's degree program but due to unforseen circumstances I had to abruptly stop taking those courses. It was my hope to be able to complete my online degree but unfortunately, the UNIVERSITY OF... Read more
