UP advertising that they have "up to" $1 million in scholarship money to give.....since they charge close to $90,000 for an "education", that is about 10 people. Please don't buy this BS. Go to a community college. Even a trade school would give... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at University of Phoenix
At this late date in the history of academic college scams , students almost deserve years of debt that will live with them the rest of their lives. I'm not sure what more can be said.
I saw this ad on tv earlier today https://www.ispot.tv/ad/Zpjn/university-of-phoenix-a-degree-doesnt-just-change-you-alumna-carmen-bravo
I assume layoffs are coming soon. The school has stopped marketing. There’s no leads coming in. Genesys and Salesforce have stopped working. Management has zero interest in solving these problems. Why? Too many overpaid executives at the top that... — read more
I received my new title the other day which falls under AIG per se. We were told that they are going to use random d–g testing to get rid of some people. Even though it is a right to work state, it is easier to deny severence and contest... — read more
Don't enroll students with insufficient background education, and hand them degrees which have no market values... I taught for 6 years at ground campuses in MD, DC, and VA between 2010 and 2016. I started in Columbia in MD ground campus in 2010... — read more
Any updates on the VA decision? The deadline was June 7.

Wondering if anyone has heard about possible layoffs or furloughs due to current economic issues....
University of Phoenix could have listened to its best people and become a stronger organization by accepting constructive criticism. Instead, it has become a symbol of American Greed and the demise of America's largest university. Over the years... — read more

"There are many parts to the current Coronavirus crisis and its effects on US higher education. But they all boil down to the Trump mantra (defund, deregulate, and privatize) and the opportunity for the elites to capitalize from the crisis, as they... — read more
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

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

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
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
University of Phoenix failed to implement, until recently, Aug. 25, 2019, the State of California Wage and Theft Protection Act of January 1, 2012. Basically CA non-exempt employees have not been paid accurately according to the law, e.g., hourly... — read more
