Topics regarding layoffs at University of Phoenix
Are there any veterans with PTSD who are concerned about having to finish their schooling online? If so, please let me know.
Upper management knows it is entitled. So run out the clock with bad ideas, failures, dead ends, then cash out. Lovely.
Our manager told us that you might work from home if you're near a RUNNING campus like within certain miles. But if you are in the outlying teachout locations you can kiss your job good bye. They are only going to need a couple dozen enrollment reps... read more
There are fewer and fewer potential students calling in but yet management expects each enrollment counselor to enroll 12 enrollments or more. Newsflash a$$holes our team of 10 enrollment reps had a total of 52 newly enrolled students for last month... read more
More layoffs are coming before September. It’s amazing how far this “company” has fallen.
Its been a few years since word got out to even the poor and stupid that University of Phoenix degrees were fake and that you cant get a job with one. After I left enrollment declined immensely but I hear 50k are still enrolled in 2018. Back in my... read more
FTF are being targeted once more. Eyes up, y'all.
Seriously. That was a great day for me. I caught the round of layoffs three years ago from yesterday and I'll say it: there were some struggles after experiencing that. I mean, I took a substantial pay cut for a while and tried a few different jobs... read more
UMUC is catching flak from the conservative National Review. https://www.thelayoff.com/umuc

I often patronize this site for useful information about Phoenix enrollment, layoffs, closures, academics, advising, leadership, culture, and systems. I appreciate many of the contributors and have found some of the opinions insightful and... read more
All the good tech folks are gone, I guess. I've never known them to have an outage lasting this long. Students are panicked and p.o.'d.
Does anyone know what a "select" campus is? UOP has designated some campuses as teach-out, select, and market. No one seems to know what select actually means.
Trident University may be in trouble for disrespecting grieving widows. CEO is a UoPX alum. https://www.thelayoff.com/trident-university-international
From yesterday's leadership broadcast: No growth in FY18. Down 15% in new degree enrollments. Down 2% in continuing degree enrollments (this was spun as great news, because it is an indicator of higher retention). Compared to FY17, down about 18% in... read more
I just found out I’m not Faculty anymore. No notification. Nothing.
Even if your diploma or GED is not accredited are you still attending UOP? Were you home schooled? Do you have no diploma or GED? https://casetext.com/case/price-v-us-dept-of-educ
Anyone know if they typically give severance to the laid off? Ever heard of them laying off without it? Just curious in case they hit this month.
I am in Phoenix and there is panic behind the ivory doors. Enrollment is plummeting and there isn't a clue on how to stem the tide. Faculty are being slashed- those who haven't taught in the last 6 months are done. There is no consideration for a... read more
Without enrollment growth, there is no choice other than layoffs and closings for profitability. Mid level management and operational management does not know and are not informed so they can preserve whatever morale is left and prevent the last few... read more
The Utah location has been dead for some time. But they have an Education Program Chair and no students. I was told I wasn’t needed anymore because they weren’t running the programs. But they kept the staff. Maybe that explains the failures of UOP.
So University of Phoenix's call center and live chat option aren't even working on Sundays? Can't you even hire people in India to take business?
I only count about a dozen campuses still taking students, in Hawaii, Nevada, Texas, Virginia, and Washington state. How many of these remaining schools will still be taking new students in the coming years?... read more
Traditionally we have layoffs in June. Anyone confirm they are happening again?
According to the GI Bill Comparison Tool, UoPX received $104M in GI Bill + Yellow Ribbon funding, making it the top recipient of VA funds. https://www.vets.gov/gi-bill-comparison-tool
I got an email telling me it’s faculty appreciation week and I should reach out to my local campus leadership to find out what they are doing. I haven’t heard from local leadership in over a year. I’m not even sure who is still around. They announced... read more
We give up. For all the excitement and feedback provided guess no action from Glint. Are no leaders brave?
Do you know about any schools taking out loans in veterans' names without the veterans' permission? If so, please contact Veterans Education Success. https://veteranseducationsuccess.org/whistleblower/
The conservative Daily Caller is interested in any information about Vistria's role in this ongoing disaster.

Well --- I'm a former faculty member, starting at a local campus and then going online. For a long time we had a great reputation here, with many dedicated faculty. We put out a good product. The downfall of UoP came, in my opinion, with the rise of... read more
Faculty needs to band together and do a walk out. Given the disrespect, increase in class size and decrease in quality. Stand united and walk out. You need to be treated better. When our instrutor told us about how they are treated, dang. Not good.
"Spokespeople for Phoenix declined to comment. But multiple sources told Inside Higher Ed that for-profit Phoenix’s enrollment may have dropped below 100,000 recently, which would be the first time it slid below that number in 15 years."... read more
