I called University of Phoenix and told them that I wanted a degree in Criminal Justice. After completing the hard work over the years to completion, I received a degree in Associates of Arts. I was disappointed and confused because I wanted a degree in Criminal Justice. Now they tell me that I did get it and it was in the "concentration" of criminal justice. What? I thought when you ask for a degree of your choice, you get the degree you want especially when you have to pay boot loads of money! I am so disappointed with University of Phoenix for many things but this degree misleading information takes the cake and they wanted me to take my Bachelor's there too! No way! They are too misleading in too many ways!

I am not the only dissatisfied complainer. There are others and the reason why I couldn't just withdraw because in fear of retaliation, scare tactics and being patronized. My list goes back to 2011 of all the misleading, misunderstandings etc. From some instructors, some advisors and managers. There was a time when I was patronized so bad that they referred me to the wrong name the whole email conversation. So if they get your name wrong from the entire conversation there's no telling what else goes wrong.

After talking to other "Universities" they were appaulled about my diploma dilemma of University of Phoenix and couldn't believe it. I said I wanted a degree in Criminal Justice and if they couldn't give me that, what they should have said, explained and clearly state that, "You cannot get your degree in "Criminal Justice" but you can get your degree in  "Associates of Arts" and if this was explained to me clearly then I would have told them, "No Thank you!" I believe I should get my money back or get my diploma changed to "Associates of Arts in Criminal Justice. Another thing there is an diploma online that shows "Associates of Arts in Business" is this wrong too? 

" Yes, very misleading and yes a Rip Off!"  and to many fallacies

P.S. When a prospective student request information about Criminal Justice it should also say, "Associates of Arts" with the concentration of criminal justice so they can clearly know this.

You don't seem to understand how college degrees work. At the Associate's level, you could have an Associate of Arts, Science, Applied Science, Applied Technology, etc. There is no such thing as an Associates in Criminal Justice. They are absolutely correct in the way they word the degree: "Associate of Arts in Criminal Justice". It's a matter of semantics. Their concentration in CJ is typical of any two-year degree.

At the Bachelor's level, you could earn a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, etc. You would then have a major (or minor, or concentration) in CJ.

The important part is to look at what your transcript says. Most likely, both your transcript and diploma will read "Associate in Arts" then, "Concentration in Criminal Justice". 

In the vernacular, students almost always say, "I have an Associates in CJ", or "I have a Bachelors in Psychology".  This isn't a totally accurate way to describe it, but a simple shorthand.

No rip off here.
