I am currently enrolled in this on line school and in my second class. They do not teach you, they give you questions and make you research everything. They say you are recieving a bachelor's degree yet you have to attend four years...not to mention other thing that they do not tell you before you start. I would not recommend this for anyone! Now I must figure out how to get out and find an appropriate college.

If you do not plan to do research then you will not learn in any college you attend. University of Phoenix is a fully accredited College, if you do not like it and have completed enough class to get credits your credits will be transferred to any other accredited college (meaning they will accept them) UOP is utilized by the US Military for it's officers overseas and has a great reputation. Also, Associates degrees take two years, a Bachelors four...if it takes you less than four years to get a BA then you can be sure that your school is not credible, unless you're doubling up on classes or something.

Uh duh...a bachelor's degree usually takes 4 years unless you are transferring in an acceptable amount of credits from an associates degree.

And the laws will vary per state. So did you do your research before you even signed up. It sounds like you want everything handed to you on a silver spoon.

I graduated from UOP and it was absolutely a grand experience. I met so many people. I went to a ground school. I would go to finish my grad degrees but suffered brain damage from a coma and can't attend now.

You are accountable for reading the guidelines, policies and all about the process before you sign the contracts. I never had a problem with funding or anything.

UoP online is for people that need the paper but don't have the time or background to complete a real degree. They sell diplomas for the most part.
