University of the People Reviews
Description University of the People
University of the People is the Education Revolution. It is the world's first non-profit, tuition-free, American accredited, online university. With a groundbreaking online learning model and instructors from the world’s foremost academic institutions, UoPeople offers the opportunity to earn high quality, accessible, affordable American degrees. UoPeople allows students the flexibility they need to earn college and graduate degrees and to build brighter futures, whoever and wherever they are. University of the People is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. In 2020 UoPeople received WASC accreditation eligibility.
The people who run the school appear to be in India somewhere, it’s evident they do not speak or write English well, the courses are elementary, and there is not a single number to call to speak to someone. If you call the number provided online, it instructs you to speak to your advisor even though the advisor can’t comprehend questions asked, it typically takes the advisor a week or more to even respond and the response is not even the issue you contacted them about. They have a standard reply for everything.
People are rebuilding their lives and some start to hope again due to quality education provided by the university. The university also provides scholarships to some students who cannot afford even this small amount of money. Modules and course material are well structured in a manner that makes the learning process simple.
I would recommend it you simply want to get a basic understand of a subject, but not if you want to get a great education. If that is what you are after you may or may not be disappointed only luck will tell. Many of the students have very poor English skills, and some of the instructors are not very helpful.
I applied, paid the application fee, but got no further because they cannot seem to assign me an account, or give me access to one. I have been stuck in limbo and none was competent enough to remedy the situation. And the responses to my inquiries for help are seem to have been answered by people who have taken no time to understand and fix the problem.
