    UoP is a big scam school. I can't believe they're still in business. They did a whole 20/20 or Dateline thing on their BSedness years ago!

    That's good to hear.  I have a few friends that are taking courses thru them!

    No! Absolutely not. As someone who has hired people, it looks good you went to college.

    I was already planning on transferring at the end of this year, I haven't been happy with my experience at UOPX at all. Our classes are 4 weeks long, I go on campus one night a week and most of the instructors don't take it seriously....our "classes" are a joke. Class is from 6-10 and most of the time we don't do anything but sit there and shoot the shit all night.


    Quoting Litlmama87:

    Do an online search, and read the reviews from alumni. I would highly suggest transferring.



    Quoting NikiSellers0806:

    Y'all are scaring me LOL, I attend Phoenix right now and I've already got ALOT of $$ in it. Tuition is almost 10g per year!






    Quoting Litlmama87:

    That school is like attending Clown College.

    Probably not as much as they used to. I hired for my department for years & never had a resume with that on it.

    Me too...for grad school. Did my undergrad at UTD. :-)


    Quoting Jess0915:

    No clue. I didn't go there. I went to SMU.

     Most likely they do. I want to study nursing anyway and you can't do that online so no worries for me..

    I have 30 credits from UoP and 9k in it. I did not finish the degree because i didn't want to be 20k in debt and nothing to show for it. The classes are ridiculously easy too and I am not very bright. lol

    I went there, nothing counted, community college is a better bet.

    That place was a waste of time. I went there for a year and transferred out.

    I simply do not believe that an online school can provide an educational experience comparable to that of attending class at a university. I understand that some people have time constraints, but where there is a will, there is a way. Personally, I wouldn't hire a University of Phoenix online grad because it reflects a distinct lack of drive. No offense intended to anyone.
