No idea. I don't see why they would though.

I don't think it matters anymore to employers. But imo the university of phoenix is over priced for what your actually doing. Local places are typically cheaper.

I'm not sure, from an employers stand point. However, I had a friend attend there. According to her, not only was it a waste of money, but she didn't receive any recognition for her credits. I would much rather go to a local college versus one like that. I did AIU for a little while...same thing, waste of money and time. I went to a local community college and was recognized more for that. Plus, if it's the online thing people like, most colleges....university, community, and technical colleges...offer online or hybrid classes. I took a few of those. I much prefer a classroom setting though.

Probably, because UoP is a scam and rip off. There are better online universities and most local colleges offer online only courses nowadays.

No! Absolutely not. As someone who has hired people, it looks good you went to college.
