Complaint Review: University of Phoenix
University of Phoenix I'm a ARMY VET and UOPX is forcing me to pay money the VA already paid them Arizona Internet
I am a Army VET and the post 9-11 covers my tuition. My Financial advisor held my BAH and FASFA money claiming my Certificate Of Eligibility for 100% of my tuition is not valid. The forced me to take a Leave of Absence and they kept pushing my start date for my next class farther and farther which they got paid tuition and I am in debt to the VA over 400.00 and the UOPX is saying I owe them 400.00. I spoke with the VA debt management and they say I don't owe the UOPX anything. But when I confronted the financial advisor she threatened to send the amount to collections. In less than a week I was told the amount would go to collections. I had a financial advisor who was extremely rude to me and I asked to be assigned another but that request was never granted. I had 4 Academic advisors in three months. I was never told about the changes and they didn't advise me in any way.
The text books are E-books and the material was ridiculous. Reading four chapters a week where all 4 chapters are long drawn out explanations of the same point. The Gamescape was horrible. My friend a fellow VET started school roughly around the same time I did. She goes to Ashworth. She is about to graduate as me with the UOPX I have a year and a half or longer. The UOPX makes you do 8 substantive posts a week. With the crap material that proves to be extremely hard to do. When I attended Kxxxxx before the Army it was 4 a week. My friend attending Axxxxxxxx it's 4 a week.
One WARNING I want to inform people of UOPX is make sure the UOPX is still Accredited and make SURE Employers actually consider the UOPX degree in the same regard as any other college degree. PLEASE don't waste your time of money for a degree that can lose it's credibility or on a school that Employers look down on. Please. please, please Make sure you do the research before you drown in student loans over a school that won't return the results you desire and deserve. I really hope this helps someone avoid making a huge mistake and putting thousands of dollars towards a degree that will hold you back from achieving your dreams. Peace and good luck!
