UOP's VA funding will not cease

VA funding will not cease. It's unjust and they just attempted it with ITT and it was backed out. Meaning that ITT was not ceased from VA funding. Vets are treated well and provided an opportunity to earn a good education so there shouldn't be a need to force them out of an option to attend a ... read more

Do not believe the lies that investors are championing on this site about UOP's financial welfare. This school has run afoul of the VA and they are going to put a hold on VA funds beginning in December, but not for those already in a program. No new VA funding for new students beginning in January ... read more

IT Spend is at $10+ Million Over Budget

We are buying things left and right, stupid things that will take us nowhere. All of this is happening while our stock is tanking. So, something has to give - right? We'll have major layoffs in IT very soon, wait until they report numbers again, they will have to react quickly to calm down the ... read more

UoPX Fails Character Test

@Anonymous146227, you are right that Apollo Group made a big mistake from going away from its roots--that was many years ago. Instead of listening to John Murphy and several others, John Sperling went with criminal minds like Todd S. Nelson. Presently, they do not have the qualified leadership or ... read more

If people get welfare and I pay taxes to support welfare, then I deserve to pick up a few of them to come clean my house, cut my lawn, trim the trees and wash my car. Nothing is FREE so GET TO WORK!

APOL will implode by June 2016

I believe Apollo has lost the analyst community. This should bring mid-quarter analyst downgrades as well as negative estimates revisions. This should hurt share price heading into what is to be an expected terrible quarter reported. From Seeking Alpha 08/31/15.

Well as if there couldn't be any more bad news

Well as if there couldn't be any more bad news but Seeking Alpha column says 1) UOPX guidance is worthless because it can't hit it, 2) upper management has not had the decency to step down, and 3)everyone start shorting the stock. I am a proponent of UOPX but even I have to say this is going to ... read more

Tell your manager and director that traditional schools don't have one-on-one meetings about numbers every two weeks. Push back and if they don't listen, share your experience with the ... read more

Word of University of Phoenix's demise...

Claims of University of Phoenix's demise have been greatly exaggerated. EDMC (Art Institutes, Argosy, Brown-Mackie, South), ESI (ITT Tech), CECO (Colorado Tech, AIU), LINC (Lincoln Tech), UTI, and other for-profit education companies seem more likely to go bankrupt first. The winding down process ... read more

Selling the American Dream Scam

Blaming those who take out loans to go to University of Phoenix is biting the hand that feeds everyone at Apollo Group and University of Phoenix. At this point, anyone still recruiting at UoPX is complicit--there is no redemption at this point in the company's history. Teaching at UoPX is ... read more

Feds shackled Corinthian with 21 day hold times on releasing aid which ultimately did them in.

People are talking about 45 to 60 day holds possibly going into effect. This would ultimately lead to disaster and I think that is the point. This place is imploding faster than the WTC.

If they go out of business, does the name stay with the stadium?

I hate seeing that name all over at the Cards games. Makes me sick! Like a billboard for this sham school. I hope they are forced to sell the naming rights soon. There is no way they will be around at the end of the lease.

No saving this turd! Will see low single digits before earnings. No amount of money or good press can save it. The name is trash.

It is sad for the people who actually graduated and were just trying to do better for their family. The Negroes and other low life scum that attended this school simply to pocket federal aid money are ultimately to blame for the destruction of this university. Chalk this up as another lesson ... read more

I have been on the FTC site and even after doing a search can't find any information on how to send the FTC information about UOPX

I have hundreds of emails from manager warning me and others that we don't have enough new referrals (leads) and that we haven't REG'd enough (enrolled) students this month so forth and so on... is this something the FTC should see? This seems like old news to me but not sure if FTC could use it? ... read more
