I have been trying to sue the U of P for years. They scammed me by tricking me into sighing for a loan when I told them I didn't want one.

Erik Young who worked there said he understood. I told him I only wanted a grant because I had a credit card payment and didn't want a loan payment. He said he understood. Yet I ended up with a large loan.

I was in my 50's and now they are taking this lie out of my social security. I can't stand this university. I get sick at my stomach when I hear commercials that are going to hurt people. Please make them stop ruining people's lives.

I wish it wasn't too late for me to sue but I fear it is. :(

No one can figure out what you guys want. When we ask professors they act like we cannot read. Your assignments and worksheets are not clear. I deserve a clarification as a paying student. I have spent over $10,000 dollars already. I have not learned anything but how to do a PowerPoint and guess at what is expected of me. This is a sad program that needs revamping and some help. I know you think the students figure if out the process is part of it, but this is crazy.

Current student that can’t get help

You guys do not support current students. We have a group project due to that no one can figure out how to complete the group review. Thanks for the promised support. Really really sad! I am recommending people not attend your university. Step it up! You promised me more. Apparently once I pay I dont matter! Yes that is a statement and accusation!!

User's recommendation: Don’t go.

Did the virus affect your brain? Why did you post your address?

Took seconds to determine you’re an idiot Two things, flag your post. Secondly, do not have children, You’re already a burden

#1993414

If you're exposed to the virus, get tested in 14 days. If negative handle your affairs. Im guess you're a financial mess.

Why are the loans for students who attended between 2010-**** not being forgiven as well? I was scammed by the same deceptive practices when I met with an adviser in 2010. I was told UOP was "working with" major companies like Yahoo and MGM, Adobe, and Microsoft, etc....

So, you think having $52K in debt forgiven is a good thing? Wait until you get that 1099C and this is added to your income for the year.

You think the student loan people are bad, wait until the IRS wants their money.

Be careful what you wish for. You're up the creek either way mate.

Save your money and go back to elementary school

I quit because it was a giant waste of money. It is essentially a glorfied elementary school. Thousands of dollars and they want to teach you how to write a dam check. That was the final straw for me because I suddenly realized they were filling the courses with fluff and filler in order to bleed you out of almost a year in loans and you learn nothing. If you never attended junior high or elementary school then this place is for you. They will teach you all kinds of writing all of which is useless since NO ONE in the real world writes in APA standard, and you will learn how to write a check and balance a checkbook, something i learned in 5th grade. Save your money and go elsewhere. Spent a year chasing an IT degree and never did learn a single thing about IT. Oh and lets not forget you are paying them to have other students teach the classes not even a real teacher instead you get a student that still hasn't even finished school themselves. They must save a bundle on payroll ripping people off this way.

Financial Aid Disaster

If you are smart, you will not attend this "university". I have been to a university before, online and on campus, and my experience with financial aid has never been this horrific. 1st of all, lets speak on the cost difference, OUCH! It's bad enough that the school is mega pricey, but your 1st 3 classes are irrelevant, yet costly. If you feel it's necessary to educate me about how to be an online student, do it for free! 2nd, the financial aid office is full of *** that are given a list of things to say when asked specific questions. No details or anything remotely close to actual help. I started school in March. Here it is almost June and my pell grant JUST posted to my account a MONTH after my loans posted. Now they're saying I must wait an additional 2 weeks for them to release the excess funds THEN another 3 to 5 days for it to be released to my checking account. I am not understanding why their process is so much more difficult than everyone elses. This will be my 1st and last year in this school. It is way too expensive for them to move this slow. I do not appreciate the lack of urgency & I cannot wait to transfer!!!!!

They take out fraudulent loans in your name

Their Sales Staff lied to me and said all my college credits would count and that my tuition would be taken care of by the Pell Grants and scholarships offered at the school. She (Linda Gettle) flat out lied about this. I started school and took four classes that don't count and cost me $8,000. Crazy. I was sick and out of work at the time. She preyed on my weakness. The stress caused me to get even sicker. They attached my tax returns and ruined my credit.

I am having the same issue for the 3rd year in a row. I am a 4.0 GPA student so this is not an academic probation issue.

It is a heartless school trying to improve their bottom line during the reaccreditation process issue! I have read countless posts from other students in our forum and heard from others that are facing eviction, have no food and are losing utilities that they are hearing the same "Our research team is looking into it" excuses. Today almost 7,400 went missing from my account with no debit memo. The manager showed a screenshot with debit memos totaling half that amount and claimed they were sent out but her staff and my account disagree!

One said the $7,400 was wrongfully mailed. The next said neither was mailed but if the higher check was written it would take up to 15 days to cancel it a reissue a correct one plus mailing time =eviction for me! Rise like a Phoenix?

Heck no! You are more like a clay pigeon at a skeet shoot with a driveby education!

University of phoenix doesnt care about you. Teachers > Students

DO NOT GO TO UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX. I was having a problem with an instructor my academic counselor could see the problem but when submitted higher it got swept under the rug. They care about their instructors not their students. The teacher has the final decision on your grade so you can earn a 8/10 on you paper and she can give you a 4/10 just because and there is nothing you can do about it. Tried to file for a grade change with the university they basically said oh well and tried to direct me to a University tool to help me. Also if you ae a veteran DO NOT go here they mess with your pay you never get you full amount and they never submit your enrollment on time. The first week your actually doing the homework for the first week your according to them not in class so you don't get paid for it even though you finish one class on 4/1 and have to start you work for the next class starting 4/8 but that week doesn't count, it counts as a break in your class.

I took Criminal Justice course online with this college an was exspelled from the online course for the fact t hey said I was cheating on my work. I was copying others work.

How do you copy anything from anybody when you are taking an online course from your own living room. I just didn't understand that at all. Then said I could come back an start the next semester if j wanted to continue my studies.

WHAT!!!!!!!!!! No I'm done.
