Rachelmorreale on Dec 13, 2018

I was totally mislead when signing up with you and only went to school for 5 months they have stolen 3000 out of my taxes and they want another 3, 000 and I do not understand how I owe that. I would like to know if there is any help or anything that there can be done for loan forgiveness?...

University of Phoenix / financial aid scam

Melisaas on Aug 4, 2018

This school deserves no stars, I totally agree with the other reviews. University of Phoenix is a scam and it appears that their only focus is monetary. I am a veteran and I registered at the University of Phoenix to take a single course with the intention that the school would submit my...

I attended UoP from 2010-2011, with the promise of graduating with a bachelors in accounting, and also job placement. I soon learned that the classes were not anything but chatting and replying to other students. I continued on with my classes, keeping a 3.8 GPA. During 2011, our home wa...

I have been proactive in efforts for re-entry of online classes on 8/15/17 with UoP. My advisor took leave due to a family emergency; this was learned when I hadn't heard from her so sent an email requesting an update. An auto-reply came back to me stating she was out and if i wa...

University of Phoenix / school disbursements and financial aid with the school

crystal geng on Jun 7, 2017

I would make the complaint but as I am in school right now, I don't want this to get in their hands just yet. I have to make a decision to withdraw and go with the class action lawsuit or not and just get my BS degree since I'm under a year of graduation. Don't really know what to do right...

University of Phoenix / marginalization

nmonego on May 31, 2017

Unfortunately once again, I am going to have to leave a negative review for this school. This school decided to end my class for me today, when they wanted to on their terms, with no regard for my individual circumstances. After a few weeks of struggling with one sick child child with...

University of Phoenix / financial aid

Amanda Lowe on Mar 4, 2017

When I orginally enrolled in uop in march 2015, I was told that my financial aid would be ready for disbursement about 30-60 days after my start date. Which seemed like no big deal to me at the time. I completed my fafsa applications for 2015/2016 and 2016/2017 all at once, as I was asked...

Lee Blackwolf on Sep 1, 2016

I may have to consider a lawyer because of what was done to me over the course of months. The administration of this school gave me half-truths and purposely kept out information - it seems - because for some reason because of a technicality I knew NOTHING about, I don't get my refund...

University of Phoenix / university of phoenix

Chearise on Aug 11, 2016

I was advised that my tuition was going up 300 per class, I don't have a problem with that, but it went from 1400-2100 and I was told that the reason it did, was because I asked for my Associates diploma to be mailed to me back in May, in which I haven't received at all, but this i...

University of Phoenix / gunsmith certification

Reviewer56029 on Jan 21, 2016

I feel heartfelt regret to read all of the unfortunate outcomes on the predations of PSU "staff" on people looking to better themselves. I myself was eyeing the site and thinking to myself this sounds too good to be true for the price, all the memberships, and apparent sheer amount...
