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.

Came to find out that University of Phoenix charged me for classes I did not take at a time that I wasn't even in the country. If anybody attended UoP, please make sure this is not happening to you. This has not only negatively impacted my credit, but is now affecting my eligibility to apply for loans to continue my education.

You are all 100% correct. They are fraudulent. I was told they were an accredited school (lie) and that I could get my associates degree through them then transfer my credits to any other accredited school (lie). This reason was because they did not have the program I wanted so they pushed me into a similar one promising me it would be easier this way and I would be GUARANTEED (another lowlife lie) to get into a local university that has the bachelor program I wanted. So yeah false advertising, blatant lies, hard selling education, and bullying persuasion techniques on a single mom, working a full time job at the same time, and now swallowed up in debt. And I actually graduated and attempted to do what they said I WOULD be able to do... to just be laughed at and humiliated because of these jerks once again! Yeah on false advertising alone ANY AND ALL LOANS SHOULD BE FORGIVEN, as well as sued for all of our blood, sweat, tears, and time we put into their programs and were left completely blindsided, embarrassed, in debt, and the worst part... putting so much work and effort into a lie of a dream based off their false advertising!

I went in just to see about the school and what I could do to get a BS degree from the college credits I already had in nursing. Before I knew it some woman had me filling out an online FAFSA and had me enrolled in the college. I told her several times I did not want ANY loans, I just wanted to see if i could get some sort of financial aid that I did not have to pay back. This was in 2005. She told me that I HAD TO GET LOANS in order to get financial aid. She also told me that I could not get FA unless I had some sort of income. I did not have a job at the time, and was living on my 401K from my previous job. Single mom with a baby in daycare. She told me to lie on the application and say that I worked for my mom on occasion and she paid me. I should have known right then and there that school was a hoax! I found a job while attending, and for 2 years I went to that place every night after I worked 8 hours of work, drove all the way to Bryant from Little Rock to get daughter and take her all the way to Maumelle so that my mom could watch her while I attended this felonious school to try to make a better life for my daughter. I should have been able to pay for the entire degree with a Pell Grant. They have all kinds of grants and scholarships for single moms to go to school now. She never entertained the idea that I might qualify for any scholarships, nor did she explain to me that Unsubsidized loans would immediately start accruing interest. She broke the law. They did not have Informed Consent, because I WAS NOT INFORMED! I knew nothing at all about any of that stuff when I went in there. She made me lie on my application, omitted very important information and advice, and after getting my degree I have not been able to find a job making more than $12/hr because NOBODY RECOGNIZES A DEGREE FROM UOP!!!

They did not even check if I had a GED. I filled out a thing online about possibly going to school. Within a week I was enrolled and 3 weeks later I was taking classes and had school loans. I went through a medical crisis and failed a class...7 years ago. I cannot catch up I'm disabled and in debt

My student loan debt is currently $100,000+ after attaining both a bachelors and MBA from UOP. After graduating with my MBA I couldn't understand why I couldn't find a job for 5 years; I actually began to think that there was something wrong with me, but when I heard that so many other UOP graduates have experienced the same thing I know that those 5 years of no job and living out of my car was not caused by me. I eventually got a job at Target as a dressing room attendant making $9.00/hr with my big MBA. This is a terrible thing to do to people that are trying to improve their lives, and the lives of their families. You could not fathom what I went through when I was unemployed for so long. I lost my home, car, AND children. UoP needs to be punished by the full extent of the law. I plan to fight this.
