Complaint / review text:
I just finished my Masters (MFT) at Univiersity of Phoenix and am now in Debt over $50,000. The school hires individuals that work as MFT's or other professions to teach these classes (not a great thing). Some teachers have never taught any classes before and do a horrible job in teaching. Other teachers have their teachers pets and grade accordingly.
University of Phoenix automatically charges every student $80 per class for online books, which you still have to pay for printing these chapters, and you need to buy 3 ring binders to put them in. Students do not have a hard book like you do at other universities. There were times that we did not even get books, we got papers people wrote as our weekly readings, and for these, were were still charged the $80. They have a horrible system when it comes to books.
Then there staff turnaround is hi and there are always different counselors that are assigned to students and one is lucky if you get a call back. What they are good at is calling students if your financial forms (for loans) are not in. Students feel that the education is not a true quality education from University of Phoenix, but a paid degree, then your on your own to do the true learning once you've completed your program. Please be really carefull when considering this school. I did the On-CAMPUS classes, not on-line, and it is NOT WORTH YOUR MONEY, if I could go back, I would have chosen a quality school like Pacific Oaks or USC for this degree. I also did my undergrad there, BS in Business Management, that was a better experience, but still very pricy. Good luck
At the end of your degree, you still had to do other assessments never mentions by the school, therefore one must wait aboue 2 more months for their degree completion. Now I have to learn all I can on my own about the profession I am now in.
