University of Phoenix -- Want your Money back? plus ++

University of Phoenix is a rip off because of the low educational level,expensive tuition rates, and worthless Degrees.

The University of Phoenix Academic Advisors, Academic Counselors and Financial Aid Advisors are a big liars because they don't let you know everything you need to know about tuition, reimbursements, pre-requisites etc.

They hide the important information, and try to make you sign up for loans. These employees are there just to make money on you.

I took 13 of the 20 classes needed for a Bachelors Degree in Business(60 Credits), but I had to quit the program because the student loan was adding up too fast at $1650 per class.

Now in June 2013, 4 years later I enrolled again in the University of Phoenix in order to try to finish the 7 classes that I have left.

The Academic Counselor said I still have to take 14 classes.... (not the previous 7 needed!) in order to graduate because they "upgraded the Program twice".

In 2008, I was needing 7 classes in order to graduate, but now in 2013 I need 14! $21,840 dollars! plus $20,280 already spent! The Academic Counselor avoided telling me how many classes I do still need to take and tried to convince me to sign up for more student loans.

The cost of these 13 classes were $20,280 dollars. at $1560 per class and perhaps many more students lost money too.

If you feel that you were ripped off by spending thousands of dollars without finishing your degree or by having a worthless degree please join us on this Lawsuit.

I have looked and read many of the posts on here about how people had different experiences with the university of Phoenix.While I enjoyed going there because I liked the work and the people but even though I have two degrees from there and no job in sight I didn't blame the school, I figured that it was my fault.

I had no direction and I thought that the school would give me some because I didn't want a job, a wanted a career. Something that I could be proud of and love but that didn't happen. Mostly because by the time that I was done, I had diabetes type two and gout both which made it nearly impossible to work because I'm always in pain and now it's hard to exist.I'm still worried about paying for the student loans though, any help there

The crux of your problem is that you quit. I graduated from the University of Phoenix with an MBA and an Ed.D.

I currently work for the State University of New York. So, it seems that SUNY and the State of New York recognize that the University of Phoenix offers rigorous educational classes and is accredited.

I'm sure your problems is more about who you are then the UofP.

The story is always the same. Some loser wants to blame the university for their own failures. Grow up!

It interesting that you blame the university for your inability to obtain employment. I'll bet your lack of employment is more about who you are rather than the school you attended.

The University of Phoenix offers rigorous academic standards, which I'm guessing were too difficult for you.

I'm not surprised you dropped out. You are a loser who likes to blame your problems on others.

Dr. Larry Austin, Do not sit and call someone a loser when you clearly know nothing about them.

I did not drop out and finished my degree on on the Dean's list and the Presidents list with a bachelor in criminal justice admin. I am far from a loser but guess what, that degree was useless. I tried relentlessly to get a job in probation only to be turned down because the UOP degree was not accepted. I get up everyday and I go to work, pay my bills but never have I got one foot in the door in my field.

Now I have 56,000 dollars worth of student loans for nothing! It's easy for you to sit behind your computer screen and call people names doctor, while we are all throwing out judgement, maybe the weren't fed with a silver spoon like yourself.

My husband and I graduated from UOP and it sucks. We are both in debt and I cannot find a job to save my life.

The majority of the employers I have had interviews with in the past say they do not recognize the school as a reputable college and because of that would not hire me. The ones that didn't say anything about the college just gave me some BS excuse of why they didn't hire me. Also, after I graduated they told me they would help me find a job with the work assistance program they had but, that was a bunch of BS to.

Their so called work assistance program was nothing but a mock up of Monster careers. It's all a sham and we shouldn't have to pay our student loans for something that isn't credible.

I would like to see you offer one single credible shred of evidence that proves that the University of Phoenix is as you assert. It might be helpful if you include information about how the University of Phoenix is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

The Higher Learning Commission is also recognized by the federal government.

I too had difficulties getting interviews; however, I do not attribute any of this to the university. Rather, it all just may be the time we live in.

I too have the same complaints and did not finish because the raise in tuition was too extreme. ended in debt with no more relief in sight than when I signed up for the program.

UOP: I enrolled because the recruiter told me when I graduated there was job placement program. He lied.

Today, I am paid one dollar more an hour ($1.00) having this worthless Bachelors in business management.

In addition:

I have 55K in student loan debt

* I cannot finance a home because of my debt ratio, without a unobtainable down payment.

* None of the courses are transferable...to anything! Community Colleges, trade schools.....just shoot me.

People, the person who created the original post said at the end to "please reply to uplawsuit@gmail.com" I doubt the person can take the time to check in here regularly to get your email addresses, so you're supposed to contact them instead in order to get on board. - uplawsuit@gmail.com -

How do I get in on this? I have over $40 in student loans, NO degree, and find out with a year left that the degree I was working on won't even go towards the field I was interested in!
