A Strike Against Student Debt

Interesting article in the NYTimes about a group refusing to pay back student loan debt--The Corinthian 15. How long until UoP students balk at paying back the debt associated with a worthless degree, and then how will the government respond? I don't think they will have a choice, the government will side with the corporations--even if it means siding with schools the HELP committee and others would like shuttered. What it may do is shine more light on the school and shrink enrollment further. Of course, it could induce the leadership of the school to change the model--but that is unlikely!

Students allowing the university to dupe them into allowing the

University to hold their funds on account are nuts. Why let the university sit on your money so the university can make interest on your money? BASICALLY you are saying I am an idiot and I should have not control over my own money because I want to be treated like a child. Students need to demand to "manage their own funfs". TELL YOUR ENROLLMENT REP YOU DEMAND THIS. THEY WILL PUSH BACK ON YOU AS THIS IS PART OF THE TRAINING ON THEIR script. It will get done but don't let them con you into letting the school manage your money, that is nuts.

Waiting for layoffs..

I'm just waiting for layoffs to happen... enrollments are so low that we are being FORCED to push for referrals from students. It's so gross and sales-y. Everyone hates it. Everyday we are hounded and questioned about how many referrals we have. Who knew that part of my job would also be marketing/recruiting new students for this place.

I enroll anyone who comes through as a lead. Who cares if they graduated high school or not. I have heard of Masters grads who can't spell.

It is quite possible they never even attended junior high. Who cares though when admissions is backed up for months and half the time those lazy foks don't want to do their job anyhow and just matric the deadbeats in anyhow. It is almost comical witnessing the downfall of this organization. No one gives a crap about anything there. Everyone knows it's just some bs job until something better comes along or until the doors close. I literally walk into a scene of the walking dead daily. The agony and depression of having to get yelled at hourly about the sole reason most are even attending, where is my money is really getting old. I just call dump these idiots onto the finance people so I don't have to deal with it. I also blame finance for everything. This is great because you can side with the pell runner and say finance screwed it all up.

Students should never contact the finance advisors for anything. Students reading this should only deal with the Office of Dispute Management

Otherwise known as ODM. They bury this link under the program tab under services. They do not elaborate on what this is but if you want your money that the school is just sitting on and the finance idiots are telling you 30 to 60 business days to get your money - f that. Go to this link and take the fast pass to get your cash. Forget that 30 to 60 day nonsense those idiot finance people are telling you. They have been trained to flat out lie to you. You know immediately yours is lying to you with a smile on their faces on the other end of the line if you had 30 to 60 days to get your money. Now remember, you are dealing with some of the best in the business when it comes to lying. They fired anyone with a conscience in the last round of firings and kept the best. Also, you can always ask to speak to a director but your chances of reaching one are slim to none. They are usually at home or golfing. Plus the finance managers will make it impossible for you to reach these people. ODM oversees all the complaints and gets things handled pronto. Go to this link as I said. They operate separately from finance and have the say all in you getting your money within days. Do not even speak to finance at all. This gives them time to conjer up lies to tell you.

IT Layoffs 2015

I can tell you I was laid off yesterday and that I worked in tech. I was one of many. I can't confirm final numbers, but I can say it was between 40-60 employees. While I also confirm that additional layoffs are coming, I can say during my meeting with my now former boss and HR I was told that currently the concentration was on tech, but that it would be a business wide endeavor. While there are always rumors of layoffs, this week it did indeed happen.

OWA for email at UOPX

An IT solution was to switch university email from Gmail to Outlook. Prior email can be accessed but it is not carried over to Outlook. Access to email is only web-based or through the OWA for iPhone app or Android app. It cannot be set up as an email account straight up on an Android phone or an iPhone. It does not look like a smooth transition. It looks to be rushed out and not thought through. It looks rookie all the way down the line.

No classes for facilitators

UOPX is ignoring a problem with unhappy facilitators who have no classes to teach. Yet, UOPX is still offering incentives to faculty to take new classroom training even though half may not never again get another class to teach. In fact, some facilitators say in forums they have not seen a class for several months. Yet UOPX is still hiring and giving classes to "new" faculty and faculty with 5 years of experience on up are not working. Add on top the new classroom format is difficult, all on ground campuses will be closed, and UOPX seems to want to cut itself to prosperity, no one can be happy there except stockholders.

APOL is a dump

This raises more questions about the long-term viability of this industry, which has been anything but profitable in the last couple of years. Strayer competes with Education Management and Apollo Education , which runs University of Phoenix. These companies and other for-profit educators have been under government investigation for alleged predatory enrollment practices. Some students end up with mounds of debt with little to show for their education. Things are likely to get worse for these companies before they get better. There are more jobs now than there were seven years ago at the height of the financial crisis. For-profit education companies then marketed themselves by offering students a better way of life and better jobs upon graduation. With the U.S. unemployment rate around 5%, the pool for students is running dry. These schools now have to compete fiercely with each other. And they may also have to compete with the U.S. government, assuming President Obama's free community college proposal passes.

Strategic Staffing Cuts: Are Layoffs in Trickles to Avoid Media Attention?

Does APOL cut staffing to avoid media attention about "mass layoffs"? Or is there another reason? I have heard that staffing cuts are sometimes considered positive signals by stockholders. Could it also be that UoP needs to have cuts each quarter to signal to their stockholders that they mean business? Also, are the cuts made on Fridays to avoid media attention?

Go to thread Camden kids a fraud (He's a tool with no life), Sunday 01/18/15 18:10:44 UTC

Camden kid is second or third rate sociology teacher at a community college.

If he's so prolific and knowledgable, why isn't he working at Harvard or Yale? I'll tell you why......he's a POS that has nothing better to do than troll on nonsense blogs like this one. He's a third rate instructor who has no friends and nothing going on. If you don't believe me look him up. His students think he's an idiot. My best friend was in two of his classes and he can't even teach. If he was important, wouldn't he have something better to do than troll this website. ALL schools have things they need to work on. All colleges and universities are suffering right now. He's some Muslim extremist with no life. And he's NO kid. Go away Camden.

Reform or Face a Long Painful Demise (Metaphorically)

This may sound Quixotic, but is there anyone at Apollo Group or University of Phoenix who is discussing real major reform? Or does University of Phoenix just have to face a long, painful demise? Clearly, workers over the years have attempted to resist the increasingly predatory nature of this once respected institution. Former co-founder John Murphy has spoken out publicly about this, and there have been a few whistleblowers. But UoP needs a COLLECTIVE effort to reform this organization. This COLLECTIVE effort should be democratic, and should include students, faculty, and communities. .....http://www.dailycensored.com/more-in-for-profit-college-and-university-news-the-sludge-keeps-getting-thicker/

Appeal to Just Minded Workers

If you have any dignity, and know any illegal or unethical behavior is going on, please blow the whistle, quit, or organize for reform. For those willing to talk (anonymously) with investigative reporters, contact Aaron Glantz (Center for Investigate Reporting/PBS) or David Halperin (Republic Report/Huffington Post. Their contact information is fairly easy to find. If you are unable to make contact with them, document as much as possible and send copies of the information to the appropriate authorities (HLC, DOE, SEC, CFPB).

We have no idea how to run this business so lets distract everyone by throwing technology under the bus

Last but very importantly let me provide some additional clarity around the near term disruption from our new online classroom at the University of Phoenix. As I mentioned last quarter, the University recently completed and rolled out a new modernized classroom which was a massive undertaking. This platform overall will be an enormous upgrade to students and faculty as it is significantly more advanced in functionality and learning capabilities. It will allow us to capture and analyze data around the science of learning, which we can then use to further improve the student experience and outcomes. Unfortunately the conversion to a brand new platform is more challenging than we had originally anticipated specifically given the size and scale of the implementation. And that resulted in a greater than expected impact and retention, and again Brian will address the financial impact on that in just a moment. We’re a 100% committed to fixing all the issues relative to the new classroom as quickly as possible and infact our teams have already made substantial progress. We’re on track with our plan to aggressively address the technical issues related to the classroom and have also accelerated the future enhancements. These include ensuring the classroom is compatible with a broader range of browsers and our other operating systems at all times and that cost content is more readily accessible when access through third party providers. We’ll continue to improve usability with additional upgrades to provide enhancements throughout fiscal 2015, enhancing the ability to quickly provide the tools and training their students, faculty and grad teams needs to maximize the benefit in the new classroom and platform. Beginning in January, we started the roll out focused effort to help bring some of those students impact about their classroom back to the University and we’ll provide an update in the next quarter on our progress in this important area.
