As far as school, too, do NOT, under any circumstances, contact, speak to, or enroll with the University of Phoenix. Please! If you feel compelled to at least research them, look at all of the complaints about them you can find on the internet, BBB, the AZ attorney general, etc. Here's a good place to start http://www.consumeraffairs.com/education/phoenix.html
For every 1 person you find that likes it there there are 5 who were literally ROBBED, which is why they lost a class action last year for misappropriation of financial aid funds. Dh didn't listen to me and tried them for 6 months. At the end of 6 months he was 10k in student loan debt (with only $3000 being disbursed to him, and they kept his pell grant funds, too! They cost more than 500% more than our community college he's attending now, online), yet somehow still owed them $1200. Not on my life. I have fought them tooth and nail for the past 6 months, and only after reporting them to 2 attorney general's offices did they admit that they screwed up (only 1 of their "mistakes", not the other 3+) and he should owe less than half of that. Um, no, he should owe nothing. We're currently awaiting a review from the financial grievance committee. If they do not rule in our favor we will be suing.
On top of that, their degrees are still useless and hold absolutely no water in the job market. Please save yourself the trouble.
Good to know, thanks. I once contacted them for *info* about a Master's degree and they hounded me for a long time.
