Phoenix Settles With Student Who Says She Was Misled

April 24, 2015

A segment on WITI News highlights a University of Phoenix settlement with a woman who says she was misled by recruiters about the job prospects her degree program would open up. The woman said she was told that a human services degree would give her opportunities similar to those of graduates of social work programs, but she found her program didn't have social work accreditation so she couldn't gain internships or jobs in the field. Phoenix reviewed records of its counselors' interaction with the student and then admitted that they had “inappropriately characterized likely career outcomes.” The news show says other students are making similar complaints.
