I used to teach there for 15 years (2001-2016) and the last 2-3 years things got out of control. They did not allow me to flunk students and demanded that I changed grades for certain of them. Once, I had an evaluator who came into my classroom and... read more

We are on the RISE, UOP WILL BE LEGENDARY AGAIN!!!!!!!!
According to the NCES, the 12-year default rate at for-profit colleges is 52%. Is UoPX any better? http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-biz-for-profit-college-loan-default0-20171005-story.html

I'm reading the last few posts - one from an arguably worried UoP graduate and two from insiders. Here are my 2cents. I worked for UoP for 2 years and left. Ran away to be more precise. I now work for a large, Fortune 100 company in recruitment (you... read more
So my campus is closing. Not a peep from Campus administration. When is this happening? Will I still teach? Did I just get laid off by email?
Hi Ms HR, I know you read our post.
Gainful employment showed us what we already knew. Morons attend for-profit colleges because they can't get in/survive anywhere else. We now have the data. And nothing happens. Why? Because you can't shut down a school because it is providing a crap... read more

Campus closures or as UOP is currently calling it teach out never stay open as long as the proposed campus timeline. So staff at those locations never last more than a year. The offer to work from home makes no sense since you have to be near a... read more

I just heard admissions was hit this morning. Can anyone confirm/deny?
Well they are attacking the smallest but most profitiable department. They laid off the Director of Veterans Affairs. They laod off the Welcome Center manager for VA. This is hemorrhaging
This is going to be massive, like apocalyptic massive. Take this with a grain of salt as my source is typically about 70% correct.
