Complaint Review: University of Phoenix
University of Phoenix Poor teaching and uninvolved professors. Did not listen to my wants and/or needs. 5 weeks classes are not enough time to learn on a entire subject. Rude. Phoenix Arizona Nationwide
This college was not a good choice for me. Several professors would not be available when needed. Some professors rarely taught anything. They just gave the material such as books and gave me homework and the rest was up to me. I feel I did not learn much while attending there. What little I did learn I taught myself. During one of my classes, I was having a difficult time. I asked to drop the classes, which was not a required course and my advisor advised me to stay in class regardless of the fact I told them i was not going to be able to pass the class. I ended up failing an unrequired class. A class that I need not even need to take. I didn't have any say so on what classes I took until after that failed class, when I stand up for myself and told them that i was going to be involved from that point on to which classes I would take. Each class is a mere 5 week course. They cram everything to learn about the Topix within that 5 weeks. For instance, you take a class (Psychology of Personality), you only have 5 weeks to learn everything there is about it. That is not enough time to learn each course. So anyway, I ended up failing 2 classes and before that I had pretty decent grades. It was because there was not enough time to learn about each course. After failing my first class they just marked it off and allowed me to retake it. When i failed the second course they gave me 3 months to pay for the entire class which was around $1300. My problem with that is had I been allowed to drop that classes or withdraw I would not have failed it. It was my student advisor that insisted I stay in class even after telling him i would be not pass. The teachers at this college are rude, unavailable, and do not teach anything in class. The only way a professor interacts in a class is to comment on posts that students have posted. How in the world is that teaching?? Although, I did have a couple professors that tried to be involved as much as they were permitted the rest were simply just not involved. They literally did not teach or commit much time to the classroom. After the issue with the failed class I was given a few months to pay out of pocket to take that class again, but it was not a required class that i did not agree to take. This college is making millions and not teaching their students anything!
