Complaint / review text:
I just want to say I was glad I found your site. All the promises about financial aid that I have seen on your site from former UOP students are exactly what I was told. I read in Business Week the number of lawsuits that this school has had for the same things the folks on your site have spoken about. I was made lots of promises, even that I could get almost two Masters degrees for the price of one.
Anyway, you have saved me a lot of money. I do see how they get folks in: they tell you you're covered, but the catch is you start classes before your financial is cleared (I was told at least 90 days) so you rack up money, and then you don't get the aid they said you would get. I was also told that I would get back for supplies, etc., about $2,300. They told me my tuition would only be $18,000 for a Master's program, but based on their tuition costs posted at their website, I was actually looking at $25,920 for 36 hours. This also caused some concern for me. I hope that some of these folks who have posted do file suit.
I lucked out. Your site, and reading what others have gone through at UOP, saved me money. I'm 56 and was going back to school to advance in my company. I'll take my chances on advancement without spending the money, especially at UOP. University of Phoenix is extremely unethical. Ironically, the first class they signed me up for talks about ethics. They need to take their own classes.
