A Long-time University Faculty/Staff Member's Viewpoint
February 1, 2012
As a doctoral-level professional staff member and part-time faculty member in the undergraduate and graduate schools of a major public university, I applied and was accepted to teach at UoP. My intention was to establish this as part-time income and activity for my upcoming retirement. After teaching one five-week session of a 200 level psychology course, we have had a parting of the ways. First, I had to go through a long and labor-intensive training ... [Read more]

University of Phoenix inside report
November 3, 2011
Take it from a faculty member who graduated with an MBA from UOPHX and then began teaching there for over 10 years. The academic affairs department and the executive management are mainly concerned about financial goals and enrolling more and more students. While academic integrity is touted as important, at the end of the day they put pressure on faculty to pass students to improve their retention numbers. If you review the most recent financials ...

Happy with UOP education
May 3, 2012
I find it interesting that so many of the reviews are about financial aid or cost, but not much, if anything, about what was learned. I am frankly tired of reading comments from people who stayed for the entire program, but hate the school after they graduated. If it was so horrible, why did you stay? I have been to brick-and-mortar schools and, except for parties, there was no real benefit. I sat in classes ... [Read more]

Run as far as you can!!! Rip off!!!
May 29, 2012
This school took serious advantage of me and im sure many others. In 2006 I was 18 & had a baby living far from home with my fiance. I wanted to go back to school but had to online due to child care issues. I inquired about the school after seeing flashy google ads for "free grants, be a stay at home mom& get a degree" it sounded perfect for my situation, but at freshly ... [Read more]

Disaster. StayAway. I can't say enough bad things
February 9, 2012
This school screwed me plain and simple. I am in debt up to my eyeballs, and no one thinks my degree is real. They all laugh at me and say "I'm a phoenix!" this school is seriously bent. That's the problem when you turn education into a busineess For Profit. I recommend to anyone reading this - dis-enroll ASAP and go to your local community college. You'll learn more and get more respect than if ... [Read more]

Check all other options first
May 7, 2012
I have attended two apprenticeship programs in the electrical/electronic field and wished to continue my education online with lack of better options. I did very well in both programs and it helped me earn an outstanding career in the electronic field. This was all done PRIOR to working toward an online degree. My work schedule, 3 weeks on 3 weeks off, placed traditional education well out of reach and left me with very few options ... [Read more]

joke. For Profit = No Education. Not even AACSB accredited
January 23, 2012
This school is the absolute WORST. It charges too much for an education you can get in High School. Book reports and posting on message boards is not a college education. All HR departments I've dealt with consider this "not a real degree"; and an HR friend of mine says they actually throw away the resumes of those with UOP stink on them. This school isn't even AACSB accredited. I highly recommend go to your ... [Read more]
