UOP is really overpriced for an online degree. All it tells your employer is that you don't manage money well, didn't qualify for a better school and convenience is a big priority in your life (and will probably continue to be well after you are employed).
I was an employer and I never laughed at anyone who tried to further their education.
choose another candidate who got their online degree through an accredited 'real' university, yes. If you get a degree through a 'regular' university your diploma in no way indicated the courses were taken online.
I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.
Quoting brettsmomma:I was an employer and I never laughed at anyone who tried to further their education.
Oh ya! I remember that now! I do remember when my dh was looking at schools a few years ago he found out that UoP online was not fully accredited and most of the credits were not transferable. From what I'm reading, nothing has changed.
Quoting Anonymous:UoP is a big scam school. I can't believe they're still in business. They did a whole 20/20 or Dateline thing on their BSedness years ago!

From the people I know, yeah.
I was thinking this too, but didn't want to say it. Lol. I worked hard to work full time and take a full class load. It can be done!
Quoting foreveryoung921:I simply do not believe that an online school can provide an educational experience comparable to that of attending class at a university. I understand that some people have time constraints, but where there is a will, there is a way. Personally, I wouldn't hire a University of Phoenix online grad because it reflects a distinct lack of drive. No offense intended to anyone.
