PHOENIX AZ -- University of Phoenix is a university of phonies! I read up on University of Phoenix back when the other not credited school grace institute did not give me my final grades, and I had to write them up for fraudulent practices. I went through financial aid which one of my advisers Mrs. ** did wrong and I ended up borrowing much more than I needed!
I went back to her and told her the error, come to find out they gave me a new adviser! What is going on?! I have been given new academic advisers every time a situation comes up, like for example my diploma. I graduated October 20, 2012, since then, I had since 8 different advisers!
Since I began nearly three years ago, I took a semester off to take care of an ailing relative. I submitted my diploma application and my diploma came back misspelled, name was Keandra! How did your mailing department mess that up?! Then, when I told them of the issue the mailing department his name was **, told me that "oh just a typo everything will be fine!"
OK wait another month. It's November now, still open up my mail, got the wrong name and the wrong degree! And the name on my mailing address says Keandra as well! Right now fed up. The academic councilor is not returning my phone calls or emails as well as the department mailing service. So enjoy reading this post if any University Phonies decided to tell anyone this school is so accredited and has great degrees! That is if they can get the right degree you studied for spelled correctly! I still have not received my associates and paying for student loans and have nothing to show for it in the way of my degree. Tell other people about this school!
After 3 months got my correct diploma in the mail!!! Woo HOOOO! But Really...the school is retarded do not go!
3157 E. ELWOOD STREET, ARIZONA -- I had a and am having a bad experience with The University of Phoenix, that seems never to end. I enrolled in courses apx. 2 years ago; and had to drop the courses due to a serious illness. That's when the U of P runaround began. Several of U of P advisers told me to "see how it goes, give it another try, this, before you drop courses," and stonewalled me into dropping my course in time to receive a full refund. And even in the final response letter to the incident. The University, notes: "He stated that his reason for withdrawing was 'work responsibilities'".
I attempted to withdrawal from my classes, E-mailing and leaving voice mail message for my U of P financial adviser, with no answer, until he called me to put me in collections... University of Phoenix enrollment tactics have also been reported by: PBS, ABC News, and NPR radio.
