I have been unemployed for a little over a year. I had decided to take on online program with UoP and after two weeks discovered that I was teaching myself. I explained to the counselor (aka sales rep) that I was having problems with the pace early on but was told to keep on. After week 4, I decided to withdraw from the course. The representative called and; in so many words, told me I was a loser. I got repeated phone calls from other representatives and finally, the financial counselor. Before the class actually began, this person never returned my calls to answer questions about the status of my loan. But after withdrawing, she called me and emailed me everyday. Plus stated that my account now goes into collections after 10 days from withdrawal.
Long story short, I now have an employment opportunity that requests my official transcripts from the Master's program I completed at UoP, but I still have not paid the $1600+ (overpriced for teaching myself and down-loadable books that I have to print off) for the class I was not satisfied with from day two. I explained that they can get payment once I secured this job – but they did not care. I would not recommend this school to no one, unless you prefer being treated like a "closed sale" and not the student seeking to improve.
They are like the AMEX and Bank of America's in today's world who does not care about consumers and jacks up your interest rate from 4 percent to 32 percent if you are one day late. UoP called me constantly after I asked for more information (website link), pressure me into a sale or program that's a "not met" in terms of delivery, and but turn their back on you once you ask for help with getting through your situations. Instead of helping - they add to the problems of our economy. So what's higher about this education but the cost?
