If you are thinking about attending the University of Phoenix, DON"T!!! It is a rip off!
They pride themselves on being "a university for working adults" when all they care about is getting their hands on YOUR money. Their financial aide department is a joke! They advertise for students to apply for scholarships, which is a total fraud! I applied for a scholarship and was awarded a 4-year $50, 000 scholarship to UOP only to have it taken away from me, two weeks later, because UOP does not award scholarships to doctoral students. No where on the application did it state that the scholarship was for bachelor or master degree programs only. So, from telling everyone in my family and my employer the great news to now being totally humilated and too embarrassed to say "Oops, it was a MISTAKE". The way I see it, due to someone else's mistake I should not have had to suffer the consequences. I should have been able to keep the scholarship! So BEWARE...don't fall for their scams!! Also, the professors are not willing to work with you nor are they understanding when life throws you curve for example, going into labor and being hospitalized for two days due to complications. In their eyes, that is no excuse and you should have been better prepared followed by a non-passing grade and put on academic probation.
