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.<br />
<br />
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.<br />
<br />
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.

They are a fraud and most companies laugh now when they see what college I have graduated from. They pretty much bullied me into signing up and wouldn't stop calling me until finally one day I listened to what they had to say next thing I know I was being sent information on starting in which I did not request. They are true con-artists they sold me the dream as to why i should go with them and no one else. Im unable to use my degree because companies won't give me the time or day so I am not able to gain any experience. I even tried volunteer services through the department of labor and licensing here in my state and the list of companies they provided me with that take people out of college and provide them with experience through volunteer wouldn't even give me the time of day. I tried this for one year until I finally gave up. It was a waste of time and money and needless to say they never verified if I had a high school diploma or G.E.D. This school needs to be shut down there are so many school out there that are more credible I recommend people do their research before signing up for this school its going on six years and I am nowhere with this degree and owing $80,000 for a bachelors that is useless.

I am being told that I owe almost $5,000 to them. A portion of this for a class that I dropped and they are saying that I did not. I am trying to get my Official Transcripts to transfer to a different college to finish my final year. I owe a huge amount in student loans for the 3 years of school that I attended through UOP and many of the classes won't transfer. Therefore, I decided to cut my losses with UOP and transfer to a college with program that is accredited and will give me a degree that will further my career.

Paying dearly for a MA degree in teaching that I'm not using. Was basically bullied into signing up the day I called to ask more information. Am now in 158,000 dollars of student loan debt all for a master's degree that isn't worth anything and not valued by the education system.

I was told by a representative of the University of Phoenix that my credits would transfer to my local community college and/or UTC. When I finally transferred, they did not accept any of my credits except for English Composition II in the place of English Composition I. So I still had to retake English Composition II. I had taken 8 course from that school and racked up a $20,000 bill for credits that were essentially useless to me! It is extremely unfair to have been mislead in $20,000!! I do not feel that I should have to pay.

Military wife, mom, and $60,000 in student loan debt. In the 7 years since I’ve graduated I’ve basically been laughed at. I cannot further my career goals because of this university. I cannot even get a chance to get experience because of this university. I’m unemployed due to a military move and no one even looks at my transcripts, they immediately turn me down. Talk about depressing.

My Master's degree has proven to be useless coming from this school. I have not been able to obtain my career goals or even close to them. I cannot land a respectable job. I worked very hard for my degree and was lied to constantly. I was told when I had my bachelor's that employers we're giving me opportunities because they prefer to see a Master's degree or higher. They convinced me that if I went back to obtain my Master's then I would have a much easier time getting career opportunities. That was a lie. My financial lender kept changing and University of Phoenix assured me that this was lawful. Now I owe $130,000 in student loans and I cannot even earn the type of money that is being asked for monthly in addition to my living expenses. I have never been able to land a position using my degrees from here. I feel discouraged and humiliated. I thought I was on the right track gaining higher education and now I've come to realize that was my biggest mistake... at least from the University of Phoenix it was. I have had the same opportunities that i would've had without my Master's degree.
