new pay scale for faculty

The new faculty pay model is basically an insult to long-term and doctoral-level faculty. UOP ended the extra pay for faculty who had taught for years and for faculty with PhDs. Pay is now on based on which school the course is in. Essentially, all... —  read more 

Fake regs non-degree

It's sad that leadership is not doing the right thing and firing everybody that misled the company into believing their enrollments were higher by creating fake opportunities, putting them in reg, and removing the start dates so that they still met... —  read more 

Latest enrollment?

Anyone here "in the know" re current enrollment at UoP? I'm seeing many instructors complaining about not getting teaching assignments.

Ripping off veterans and stealing tax payer money?

How does it feel to know that UoPX has been ripping off veterans and US taxpayers? I've tried to get the VA to produce records that may show this, but they refuse. 577 complaints, the most of any school, by far. And 343 complaints related to... —  read more

Enrollment Numbers? Ghost Campuses?

Yes, the enrollment numbers and campus numbers from the Department of Education are stale. Reports of campus closings trickle out each month, but the media don't care because UoPX students these days are typically not readers... —  read more

UOP Implodes

University of Phoenix is rather quickly imploding as it relates to customers (students) so they will definitely be less classes overall which means less faculty. Also, UOP's 'new' model for dissertation students has them taking more group... —  read more

UOP fined $191 million by FTC

As a former Qualifying Center employee who was lied to by management about these partnerships and any associated potential tuition benefits that an Enrollment Rep could discuss, I'm glad UOP is facing some justice. However, I do feel bad for any... —  read more

Under the settlement announced today by the commission, Phoenix and its private investment group owners will owe the FTC roughly $50 million in cash while forgiving another $140 million in fees owed to the university by former students who allegedly... —  read more

Happy Holidays

Happy Holidays from Po. Just checking in. Po has been gone for almost 2 years now. You all have a great day.

God Friended Me?

Looks like Apollo still has money for expensive ads, even if they are old ads.

You know how you can tell when a business is failing?

When managers do everything to get people enrolled, then call those targets names behind their backs. When the business blames its advertising firm for not being able to get more vulnerable prospects. When people get sick because they cannot take the... —  read more

Enrollment is down to 85,000?

Did UoPX actually give out enrollment numbers to faculty? Is it really 85,000? If so, this is significant. But you cannot add it to Wikipedia unless it's in a verifiable source.

There are still conscientious employees at Phoenix

I am one of them. I have no illusions about what we do and how we do it; however, we do educate students. A student in my course leaves knowing more on the last day than they did on the first day. Is it a quality education? Define quality. Much of... —  read more
