Buyer beware!!! University of Phoenix utilizes high pressure sales tactics and doesn't really care about the well being of students as long as they get you to sign up. I just dropped them due to this and changed universities, but I was still forced to pay for a week's tuition even though I only attended 3 days.

UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX RESPONSE:
Over the past 30 years University of Phoenix has provided access to higher education opportunities that enable students to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to achieve their professional goals, improve the productivity of their organizations, and provide leadership and service to their communities.

It is true that University of Phoenix employs admissions counselors whose job it is to enroll students into programs of study and is similar to the recruiting standards set by public, non-profit colleges and universities. We pride ourselves in providing a positive learning environment and qualified staff to support each student enrolled. Our focus on small interactive classes, highly personalized teaching and comprehensive academic accountability systems has won praise and recognition by noteworthy academic and business leaders.

University of Phoenix and other for-profits are demonstrating their success and the facts speak for themselves. The National Center for Education Statistics indicates that three years after enrollment, students at for-profit institutions have a higher completion rate (64%) than students at community colleges (38%).

As an Educator in the Secondary level, I am all for the opportunities provided at institutes such as the University of Phoenix. What they provide is an affordable opportunity for people who wish to further their place in society.

Yes, due to the nature of our Capitalist society, such institutes have to take money in order to succeed. But where do you go and get anything free?

If you are honest with yourself you would agree that in order for something to be taken seriously by any serious person, they have to charge money.

So they're a business - who isn't?!
