Forgive all student debt accrued through the University of Phoenix

Messages Sent So Far
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 have an AA in Accounting from University of Phoenix it was suppose to continue to the BA as an accelerated program. I work for a state agency answering phones and asking customers to please pull a number and have a seat! I was lied to tremendously about job placement after completion of my program. I was lied to about the view of this college to be the same as Harvard or Oxford. Only to find I was completely on my own with finding a job, I cannot place this degree on my resume as its frowned upon. I am 60,000 in debt because they forced me to take out way more financial aid then was needed to complete the classes. I thought going to a university I would actually get the same degree as someone who attended University of Maryland and such. I have went to numerous accountants and asked and they have stated when seeing UOP they automatically assume that the person cannot add two and four to make six, they feel it is not a legitimate program of study and current accounting practices. I am in over my head I only make a quarter of what I owe for something I cannot even use or pay on!

$60,000.00 debt. No job. I agree with everyone else- Employers do not consider my Degree as being valid, and either smile, or laugh when my education is mentioned during interview.
