University of Phoenix / just a diploma mill

United States Review updated:

A friend of mine paid good money and received her undergrad, masters, and PhD in Education from Phoenix University. She has had her PhD now for over 4 years and has NEVER secured a job in education with her useless degrees.

This is nothing but a diploma mill and employers know it. Save your money and go elsewhere.

    Well that dosn't sound to good to me. I am almost done with my assosiates through UOP. Not for education but for human services. What should I do now?

    Let the truth be known. University of Phoenix is not even a school. It is a business trying to scam students to enroll in their "school". All of their education is haphazardly done. Their enrollment advisors, academic advisors, and financial aid advisors are ALL SALES PEOPLE.

    ALL UOP advisors are trained to get you signed up as fast as possible, before you realize University of Phoenix is not even a school.

    Oh, I forgot to add why they want you signed up as fast as possible. They instantly hit you with extremely disproportionate tuition costs immediately and are quick to just send your account to a collection agency.

    Very sleezy, unprofessional, and unethical. How is the US Government not involved with stopping a deceptive business like University of Phoenix?

    I spoke with a UoP relations specialist and she assured me that they constantly lay off their staff who may have caused stress to former students. That is somewhat relieving to hear, that they are continually trying to improve their educational methods.

    How can the University of Phoenix be a diploma mill if only 6% of students graduate...if it were a diploma will wouldn't everyone graduate?

    After reading these comments, it is obvious that ignorance is truly bliss. The University of Phoenix does not run a diploma mill. It give those who have no college experience a FREE three week workshop to introduce them to the style that the University uses to teach its students. Sales tactics are not used. Rather, information is exchanged with the potential student to help them make the best choice possible. If you are unable to make up your own mind when recieving this information and blame someone else for your ignorance, how can you be qualified to comment about anything? I read the comments here and see nothing but a bunch of whining, lazy dropouts who will be unsuccessful at everything in life because of their poor attitude. Blaming a company trying to make a difference in people's lives is the way they go about making themselves feel better. Pathetic.

    People get tons of tacky pop-ups and spam e-mails from University of Phoenix advertising Masters and PHD programs "that can be completed in just six months".
    Many employers base their opinions on that and are less likely to hire people with UoP degrees.

    Perhaps the University of Phoenix doesn't deserve the terrible reputation, but its there just the same. In the job market perception is reality.
    Also its nearly impossible to transfer credits to or from the University of Phoenix.
    I'm not calling UoP a diploma mill; but for the considering the tuition rates, work load and reputation...you're probably better of at a community college or state university.
