Do Not Attend the University of Phoenix Online!
U.S. companies and international companies do not hire
University of Phoenix graduates!
If you enroll at the University of Phoenix and graduate, you will be
left with a worthless degree and student loans to payback!
The University of Phoenix operates only to take billions of dollars in student loan money each and every year, and teach students nothing. Students don't learn anything in their unaccredited programs of study. It's sad that the University of Phoenix Online has to lie to students just to make a profit. This university only cares about money and not the quality of education it is giving to its students who want to better their lives!
Earn $9.5 Million Dollars Just Working For The University of
Phoenix As An Enrollment Counselor
If you are currently working for the University of Phoenix as an enrollment counselor and want to make $9.5 million dollars like two former University of Phoenix enrollment counselors did, you can make that money in 2010! All you have to do is save all your emails, take pictures of your pay incentives on the bulletin boards or chalkboards, and lastly, record any conversations in your workplace with your mobile phone. Call up a lawfirm, present all your evidence to an attorney, and the lawfirm will file what's called a "whistleblower" lawsuit. Former University of Phoenix enrollment counselors, Mary Hendow and Julie Albertson, each earned $9.5 million dollars just by working at the University of Phoenix Sacramento campus for less than two years.
"For their persistence, the whistle-blowers will share $19 million." That's not fair, all former University of Phoenix enrollment counselors should all be paid $9.5 million dollars too by the University of Phoenix.

You can also read that information here in an online article posted December 15, 2009, by The Sacramento Bee:
This is a cool 2009 Christmas present for these former University of Phoenix enrollment counselors. Get your $9.5 million dollars too and blow the whistle today!
The University of Phoenix claims it hasn't done anything wrong so, let's all keep filing lawsuits against the University of Phoenix and they will pay us in out of court settlements.
All of their Information Technology programs are unaccredited by
the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET)
and the Association of Computing Machinery (ASM)
All of their Information Technology programs offered as of December 18, 2009 are all unaccredited by the Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (http://www.abet.org/). The Accreditation Board of Engineering and Technology (ABET) assures Information Technology students that their programs of study will enable them to master the knowledge and skills necessary so that they are able to become gainfully employed in the Information Technology profession after graduation. Your University of Phoenix Online Information Technology degree won't get your foot in the door anywhere! Go and apply for an Information Technology job right after graduation and not one company will hire you. Search for any University of Phoenix Information Technology program on ABET web site and you won't find any accredited programs. Here is the link to do that search:
No Information About Graduates
Where can you find a list of graduates, by name, by program they completed, and by company that the graduate works for? No where! The reason behind this is due to the fact that if a student who actually did graduate from a program without failing or dropping out of the University of Phoenix, then that student could apply for a position with companies that have hired former University of Phoenix graduates. But, the University of Phoenix doesn't want to include such information on its web site because they would clearly be sued for false advertising. The truth is, any University of Phoenix degree is "worthless," and not a single company will want to hire a University of Phoenix graduate because H.R. departments look at online colleges and universities, like the University of Phoenix, as diploma mills.
Here is one question you can ask yourself if you want to enroll at the University of Phoenix; What companies can you work for with your University of Phoenix degree? The University of Phoenix is not going to post information on its web site regarding graduates who actually graduate from their programs and what companies they work.
What companies can you work for with your University of Phoenix degree? To further prove this, call up an enrollment counselor and they won't give you a name of at least 1 company. Why? Because if they told you that you can get hired at the University of Phoenix and you graduate with your University of Phoenix degree and then apply for a position with the University of Phoenix and not get hired, that would be considered a lie and false advertising!
Call 866-766-0766 today and ask an enrollment counselor what company you can work for with your University of Phoenix degree.
Here is the biggest joke of it all! The University of Phoenix does not hire its own graduates unless you can prove to them that you have not committed fraud in the past with your previous employer.

U.S. Companies Will Not Hire University of Phoenix
In a 12-Month Corporate Preference Study Held with Human Resources Professionals conducted by the Online University Consortium, 65.3% of the companies and organizations that participated in this study "WOULD NOT" hire a University of Phoenix graduate. That's a big number!
This information was taken directly from the Online University Consortium's web site at URL:
So, how can the bad economy be the problem if 65% of companies in the United States don't want to hire any University of Phoenix graduate period!
No Information About Their Faculty
The University of Phoenix Online doesn't provide a list of its faculty members by name, by department, by program that they teach in, or their educational qualifications. How do students know if they are learning from someone who is real and not "fake?" How do students know if they are not learning from a "facilitator" who may have received his or her degree from another diploma mill? Would you want to learn from a "facilitator" who got their degree from a diploma mill? Masters degrees and Ph.D degrees can be purchased by diploma mills!
The reason why the University of Phoenix doesn't post a list of its faculty is obviously due to the fact that none of their faculty holds any type of educational qualifications! If faculty members did possess such education credentials, then the University of Phoenix would clearly provide that information on their fraudulent web site right?
Call up a faculty member and ask them where they got their masters degree or Ph.D. from? Call up a faculty member and ask what companies have hired their graduates?
Falsely Advertises Accreditation
The University of Phoenix falsely advertises in its online advertisements that they are a "fully-accredited" university. How can this university be fully-accredited with only its "institutional accreditation" provided by The Higher Learning Commission and no "programmatic accreditation" for any of its Information Technology programs?
There are two types of accreditation; "institutional accreditation" and "programmatic accreditation."
As a college student, you want to enroll in a program of study that has its "programmatic accreditation" because this type of accreditation assures students that the education they will receive meets the requirements of the programmatic accreditor so that graduates from a program of study can become gainfully employed after graduation.
"Institutional accreditation" is there only to ensure that the college and/or university is able to receive Title IV funding or student financial aid.
"Programmatic accreditation" ensures that the education you receive will be of the highest quality, meaning you'll be learning from qualified instructors and not "facilitators," you'll be mastering both theory and practical skills i.e. real-world working skills, and your degree will land you a job in your field of study after you graduate.
The University of Phoenix has its "institutional accreditation" provided by The Higher Learning Commission but the majority of the programs that the University of Phoenix offers doesn't have its "programmatic accreditation."
The Higher Learning Commision Vice President for Accreditation Relations, Karen Solomon, is the corporate liaison for the University of Phoenix. I wonder why? To get paid millions for defrauding students who want to better their lives?
Here's something suspicious to wrap your brain around. There is a regional accreditor called the Distance Education and Training Council (http://www.detc.org/). The University of Phoenix relies heavily in distance education (online learning) to make its biggest profits but, the Distance Education and Training Council does not want to give the University of Phoenix its "institutional accreditation."
The majority of online colleges and universities, especially for-profit institutions, all have its "institutional accreditation" with The Higher Learning Commission, and not the Distance Training and Education Council.
The Higher Learning Commission has recently been scrutinized by the U.S. Department of Education's Office of the Inspector General (OIG) because of their decision to accredit American Intercontinental University and the OIG no longer wants to recognized The Higher Learning Commission as a regional accreditor. The OIG now looks at the The Higher Learning Commission as an accreditation mill.

More Than 9,000 University of Phoenix Students Have Defaulted
On Their Student Loans in 2007
Read more on this number here: http://wdcrobcolp01.ed.gov/CFAPPS/COHORT/cohortdata_detail.cfm?Record_ID=4963&record=1&datarates.recordcount=1
This high number could mean a lot of things but the majority of these students who are in default on their student loans are former graduates holding a "worthless" degree that cannot get them a job in the field that they studied in to pay their student loans back because these graduates didn't learn anything in their programs of study.
And don't blame the economy either because this number was taken 2 years ago! I wonder what that number is today? Clearly more than 20,000 University of Phoenix former students or graduates are in default today on their student loans.
Let's look at other colleges and universities because everyone wants to know public information provided by the government. Let's look at a few public and private colleges and universities, we'll throw in ivy-league colleges as well, and let us see how many students have defaulted on their student loans in 2007:
University of Hawaii at Manoa - 66
California State University - Los Angeles - 49
Arizona State University - 355
University of Colorado at Boulder - 84
Washington State University - 134
Florida State University - 194
Ohio State University - 322
Loyola Maramount University - 20
Hawaii Pacific University - 38
Harvard University - 13
Yale University - 14
University of Phoenix - 9,941
Only 5% of undergraduates have completed their bachelors degree
program over a 6-year and 8-year period. Only 1% of
undergraduates who enrolled in 2000 completed their bachelors
degree in 4 years.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, only 5% of undergraduates complete their bachelors degree and only 1% of undergraduates complete their bachelors degree in 4 years. Read more on that here by expanding the "Retention and Graduation Rates" plus (+) sign:
This is a class action lawsuit Apollo Group Management, owner of
the University of Phoenix, doesn't want the government or
investors to see:
The reason why the University of Phoenix doesn't want investors or the government to see this class action lawsuit is because the University of Phoenix doesn't want the goverment, more specifically, the Department of Justice, to know that it is breaking student loan contracts with students who have decided to drop out or withdraw from the university.
Former students, of this class action lawsuit, who withdrew from the University of Phoenix are claiming that, instead of the university deducting money that was borrowed in the form of a student loan to pay for partial tuition for a class they withdrew from, the university gave all the student loan money back to the lender, turns around, and then charges these former students the full amount of tuition for a class they withdrew from in the form of out-of-pocket expenses.
Next, the University of Phoenix has money in their hands, student loan money, that they give back to the lender and the university hopes of getting all that money back in out-of-pocket expenses from students who have withdrawn. Now if you invest in a company that has money and then all of sudden, gives it back to the lender, wouldn't you think something is going wrong i.e. Ponzi Scheme?

The University of Phoenix has a 5% graduation rate and companies do not want to hire Universty of Phoenix graduates but, this university is the #1 for-profit private university in the United States. What is happening to America's college education system?
Time is slowly running out for the University of Phoenix and all lawsuits that are actively filed today against the university will be won by the plaintiffs. Justice will be served and John G. Sperling, founder of the University of Phoenix, will be spending his final years in the "big house."
