Forgive all student debt accrued through the University of Phoenix

Messages Sent So Far
University of Phoenix is a for profit school that has profited on the backs on lower-middle class citizens looking to get a higher education to provide for their families. UoP also takes advantage of veterans seeking a higher education.

Their school is NOT accredited and potential employers laugh at these degrees. Students come out of that school with crushing debt and a useless degree.

I am asking Congress and the White House to forgive all student debt accrued through the University of Phoenix and either shut this school down, or hold them to much more stringent academics before allowing 1 more cent of money to be granted to a potential UOP student for tuition.

I am a single mom who was trying to better the lives of her children by going back to school. I am completely in awe that this institution took advantage of those who were just trying to do something and make something of their lives. This is a complete outrage. I am 18 weeks away from graduating with my supposed bachelors degree in human services and to hear this news, and to understand that I probably will not get a job with this degree but will have outrageous student loans is disheartening. All this hard work for nothing. Now what???

I attended UoP and received my Master's degree. I am $80,000 in debt to show for it. I work in a call center because I can't find a better job. They advised for me to take out the max in student loans in order to get the degree that does not advance me in work at all. I am nearly 60 years old and will never be able to pay this off. It is ruining any chance of ever retiring. I would love to see the school shut down.

UOP are corrupt and lied. I ran up 28000 in debt with a worthless diploma that I have no choice but to pay.

This School is a joke. I attended, graduated and they are still holding my transcript and degree hostage because they say I owe the school 2000. How? when I took out over 31,000 in student loans. Just a rip off- shut them down..

My degree is a joke and is not respected. I waisted almost 2 years of my life getting this degree. I was also influenced to get the max loan amount by the financial advisors. This university is a scam.

I am 30,000 in debt because of University of Phoenix. Employers laugh when I told them I received my degree from them. They lied about my degree, I can't get a job that I went to this school for.

I attended University of Phoenix for a degree in Technical Communications. After getting my associate's degree I realized that employers do not consider them to be a valid education even though they claim to be accredited. I am left with over $25,000 in debt and working for $13.50 an hour. To add insult to injury, they claim I owe THEM money after I quit at the beginning of my bachelor's degree and did not take the classes. I don't have the money to get a lawyer to fight them, so they are able to also damage my credit score. It is terrible what they are allowed to do to our economy by tricking people for profit.
