Not a real college, A rip off corporate thief!

Dec 1, 2010

Pros:Flexible schedules

Cons:Poor support structure, learning teams, expensive, devaluing credibility, bad reputation and too many lawsuits! 

The Bottom Line: Bottom line is avoid this school. If you want convenience you should spend a bit more time finding it at a legitimate school that will give you what you deserve.


I really can't say anything very positive about UofP. I have learned a few things about my study of interest and refreshed prior learning from a real university, however that's about all the positive I can think of. 
In my experience, the school seems to lack any kind of significant support structure to ensure students have the resources to complete their work. I felt the one class I took and ended up dropping included significant confusion on completing and submitting assignment properly and no one was available for assistance, including the instructor, to answer questions on formatting issues and available templates just to name a few. That was a very frustrating experience when you can't find assistance yet you are paying a huge sum of money for your education.
My first team assignment was going fine until a fellow team member completely edited our paper right before it was due without the rest of the team's permission or coordination. Of course that person's editing just ravaged the quality of the paper and the whole team paid dearly for it in our grade. These learning teams are basically worthless and just a ploy for UofP to fulfill there teaching requirements for accreditation. A UofP learning team is nothing more than a sociology experience with your education the guiny pig!
My final observation is that that UofP often seems to lack quality support staff. It could be the lack of training they receive as well as a corporate culture that is not costumer oriented. Whatever it is, some UofP staff on numerous occasions could not provide good customer service, did not know how to do their jobs and seemed to lack judgement, decision making skills, initiative to complete the tasks of their jobs.
The staff may be good people but they apparently work for a badly managed company, oh I guess it's supposed to be a university!!! My mistake! Lol (Boy they sure are handing out accreditations like they are candy!) Of course UofP is not accredited in the same class as all the major public and prestige colleges. UofP hasn't even attempted the highest level of accreditation because they know they will be denied.
