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 have over 38,000.00 dollars in student loan debt, from these charlatans and no degree. No one ever explained the extensive time I had to dedicate to completing my degree program. The financial debacle of 2008, I could not quit my job to do 12 weeks of unpaid internship. With 8 credits shy of a degree I am now broke, in debt up to my eyeballs, and no positive career outlooks because of these jerks.

I completed my Associates Degree from University of Phoenix and I am now in debt for over $40,000. Along with the added interest, when my loan is paid in full, it will be a total of over $80,000 ....for an Associated degree. I didn't realize at the time that UOP was not accredited and that worldwide companies do not consider a UOP degree legit. People are paying for a degree that they cannot afford because they cannot use the degree in their field. Congress-PLEASE make our loan forgiveness a reality and DO THE RIGHT THING.

I obtained my degree from University of Phoenix thinking I was receiving a great education but found very quickly that UOP was double and possibly tripple dipping. I am a single mom with only my income, have never received help or child support stuck with an outrageous bill. The loan company refused to work with me and when we finally came to an agreement, I found the "loan company" did not put any of my payments towards the loan. Because of UOP and it's fraudulent activity, I can't purchase a home for me and my son. They've ruined my future in home ownership and living the American dream. I'm asking congress to forgive my loans in their entirety and allow me and my son to have our own home.

When I applied at UOP I was advised it would only take me 2 yrs to get my BS in IT. After taking all the "required" classes I was advised it would take me another 2 yrs before I got my degree. I already wasted 2 years taking classes are not even transferable from a unaccredited college which was falsified by the school and now have thousands of dollars in student debt.

Graudated in 2009 with Masters, employers could care less. I have not been able to find employment with salary above $25k per year. Not nearly enough to pay back these huge student loans.

UOP doesn't care about anything but making money. So far in debt and can't even finish my degree, because they maxed me out on financial aid. I won't even start about the student loans.
