Colleges today are facing a great deal of competition, especially in the online community. With more adult students returning to school and lacking the time to attend college on campus, even local colleges and universities are offering online degree programs. The University of Phoenix is probably one of the most popular online colleges, and has set the wheels in motion for many other colleges and universities. However, this does not mean everything they do is on the level and ethical—even the best of intentions can go awry at times.
The University of Phoenix is a for-profit university that offers degree programs both on campus and online. There is certainly nothing wrong with offering online courses—in fact, they are very convenient for today’s busy adults. However, if you believe you’ve been scammed or taken advantage of in any way by The University of Phoenix, we do encourage you to shoot us an email to get a legal opinion on your case for free. We will conduct an investigation and take proper action on your behalf if necessary.
If you feel the University of Phoenix has misrepresented its offerings in any way, we may be able to help you. Some of the things that may be of concern to you include, but are certainly not limited to the following:
- Inflated statistics on job placement.
- Misleading or fraudulent practices in processing and implementing financial aid.
- Misrepresenting information on accreditation.
- Misrepresentation of transferability of credit and courses.
- Inaccurate claims about the actual costs.
- False claims about potential earning potential following graduation.
- Overtly misrepresenting the quality and value of the education University of Phoenix provides.
The University of Phoenix participates in several financial aid programs including a deferred plan that allows students who have tuition reimbursement from their employers to wait 60 days to pay their tuition. The problem with this plan is that if payment is not received within that period of time, the student’s card on file is automatically charged as students are still responsible for the payment of tuition. You may require the assistance of our firm in the event that your card is charged prior to this 60 day period or in spite of payment from the employer.
This doesn’t mean to infer that the University of Phoenix will take advantage of students, but there may be options for legal assistance in the event that it happens.
