I just completed a degree from UOP and I was very disappointed with the lack of instructor experience and the rigid class requirements. Graduate students should be allowed to tailor their classes to meet their needs and I was not able to do so. Even though the program promised to give me more experience and exposure I found that i would need to get a better degree from a state college in order to get ahead in my career. I shared my concerns with my advisor and was told that there was nothing she could do. This schoolis very expensive and not worth it's value. i have steard many people away from enrolling at the UOP.

" I agree the U of P is a very expensive and studying for a Bachelor's degree online without text books I will not go that route again. Plus, the school grades papers submitted on APA guidelines for academic writing however, do not have the updated 6.0 APA available in the school's library for the students instead the old APA that has been updated. U of Phoenix took my Pell grants and school loans. The financial advisor manager exclaimed I was over aided. Loans that the U of P could not find a way to keep they sent back which includes subsidized and unsubsidized loans. Subsequently, the University of Phoenix will find a way to bill you for the unpaid for classes and will not give you your degree or transcripts. Run, Run, do not even consider this crooked school called University of Phoenix. The only education you will receive is the art of acquiring very large debt of 2000.00 plus per class and even higher for Master's degree!.
