Forgive all student debt accrued through the University of Phoenix

University of Phoenix is a for profit school that has profited on the backs on lower-middle class citizens looking to get a higher education to provide for their families. UoP also takes advantage of veterans seeking a higher education.



Their school is NOT accredited and potential employers laugh at these degrees. Students come out of that school with crushing debt and a useless degree.



I am asking Congress and the White House to forgive all student debt accrued through the University of Phoenix and either shut this school down, or hold them to much more stringent academics before allowing 1 more cent of money to be granted to a potential UOP student for tuition.

I am so disgusted!! I was concerned over how reputable this school was from the beginning. Was told it is highly respected and job placement is basically guaranteed because they contract with big organizations whom ONLY hire UOP students. I busted my butt for four years. Was told at the beginning there MAY be approx. 1000$ out of pocket expense. My third year that about bounced up to 5000$ out of pocket . After disputing this the amount dropped down to around 2000$. My 4th year and 15 credits away I was told I was out of student loan money and would have to pay for my last 15 credits out of pocket. They set me up to take classes with one of the organizations they contract with called "Sophia". 300$ for 3 credits. I have 15 so they withdrew me from school with a balance of around 900$ owed to the school. Still paying "Sophia" to finish. Student loans are due. Almost 50,000 for a BS on Psychology. Then they send my "debt" to collections saying I owe 1,555$. I don't even have the degree yet!! They added another 600$ to my out of pocket. This school is fraudulant. I will do anything I can to expose them!! It's extortion.

I cant get any help with my loans and my Senator said there is not much that can be done at this point until it is resolved in court. I was scammed by this school with 3 degrees and no employer takes it serious. I wish I knew who to contact to Sue University of Phoenix because they called me to continue on and that is no different than telemarketing.

Was promised career placement in the criminal justice field, was told University of Phoenix was a REAL university and I was just attending one of their satellite campuses. Oh man, I was young and dumb. They are the apart of that Apollo Group bullspit. EVERYONE GETS LOANS but NOT EVERYONE GETS A REAL EDUCATION. For profit is fine, but recruiters are liars and most people going to a school like this, unfortunately, don't know they are getting ripped off. I was one of those jerks who thought I'd be getting a REAL college degree that would matter. When someone asks me where I got my degree I just say night school. Its much more embarrassing to be linked to a shiester outfit like the FAKE University of Phoenix. This place needs to be closed, its BS and is doing nothing but enslaving people to student debt. Even if the government doesn't bailout those mired in ridiculous predatory lending, they should close the school immediately. At least if they closed the school it, would keep people from getting ridiculous loans they would be better off without.

Associate Degree that's not accepted anywhere, $40,000 for 5 loans when I only took 4 loans out (4 Semesters), can't get the proof they didn't return loans on a semester i dropped, wages garnished and taxes withheld for 4 years straight! If there is a class action suit, I would gladly be a partof!

I graduated in 2013 with AA in Business and continued to take classes through UOP to obtain a BA. I have been underemployed and unemployed for over 6 years now. I'm not able to pay student loans and I have been placed in default. I am currently unemployed.

I received a BS in Criminal Justice. I was unable to secure a job within the field. I continued serving tables even after I had graduated. I moved my way into management within my company. Guess what... They did not ask me for my degree. This was solely based on my drive and efforts. My degree will not ever be viewed as desired because it was received from UOPX. I have M.S. and I have been unable to pay my debts (my fault), but they have now defaulted and my entire income tax was taken as of today. My debt is my debt, but I did try to make my degree count but because it was achieved from UOPX, it is laughed at. I chose that school because I am a mother and a wife and was trying to prove to my children that they can do anything. I am proud of my efforts to achieve the degree, but am disgusted at the joke of an education that was received.
