University's recruitment of new students is depraved. I was choosing between UoP and a few other schools to pursue a gradute studies certificate, and UoP mislead me with false information to get me to enroll, only to swap out my counsellor midway through with someone else who told me the truth of things.

Most importantly, I was told that it could take 3-12 weeks for me to receive my financial aid, but most likely I would receive it in six weeks—so I budgeted my time and resources accordingly.

Now I learn that it will take between 12 and 18 weeks. I quit my 2nd job so that I could go to school. Now I know that I need to get another 2nd job, leaving me no time for school, basically setting me up for failure, all so that UoP can waste my time and generate billable enrollment in their classes.

This is outright illegal, and everyone I've talked to says,

Well I can't control what someone else has told you, all I can do for you is this ..
.. UoP made promises to me, and has not kept them, and now that they have my financial committment, are willing to tell me the ugly truth about their admissions and financial aid processing.

If I am not able to find another 2nd job, I will not be able to pay my bills and will have to sell off bits of my property to survive. I operated in good faith that I was being told the truth by UoP, but I was intentionally mislead by them, and that has harmed me.

I am contacting legal finanical aid here in Indianapolis, to discover what my options are and seek legal counsel against UoP.

In addition, the education you receive really is sub-par. I learned more than this in the one human resources class that I took as an undergrad, as part of my business minor. I wish I would have believed the negative reviews I saw about UoP being a 'diploma mill' .. I am paying all of this money and spending all of this time, to acquire a worthless piece of paper.

I would recommend that prospective students spend serious time discovering alternatives to UoP. I would have been better off to keep my 2nd job and not go back to school at all, than to attend UoP.

responseYou are retarded the school lets you attend and finish courses until the money is recived, I have been enrolled for 2 years and if the money is late it comes from the aid department and not the UOP. retard
responseHe probably dropped out, perhaps that is the reason for his dilemma. As for UOP being a degree-mill, whatever buddy. I guess than regional accrediation is degree-mill, so than other universities like Alabama,Florida state and all others are degree-mill. Lol…
commentCheck out this site: This is the kind of site that struggling College students can but like (and bookmark). On ww w.ace you rco ll egec lass es.c o m, they will be able to post all the questions that are keeping them from these grades they should get this semester, and (for a fair price) receive all the help they need. This will come in the shape of handy tutorials, and the students will be able to preview them before buying anything, so that the quality (and usefulness) of what they are buying can always be ascertained in advance.

These tutorials are actually provided by other students who volunteer their time and effort to help people who can use some assistance. But it is not as if they were getting nothing tangible in return for what they are doing - they are actually being paid for their efforts. This turns the site into a more than valid alternative for all these students who are looking for a way to supplement the otherwise meagre income they get from their daily jobs.
