    I am currently in the UoP BSIT program. I have been considering transferring into another program because of the public opinon and costs involved. I have around 90 credits already completed, and am on schedule to gradute in December of 2005.

    Does anyone think I am better off (obviously cost-wise I would be) transferring into Troy? I still would like to graduate at the end of the year. Is that possible?

    If you started from ground zero with UoP and if you're on schedule to graduate with a Bachelors degree in only nine more months, I'd recommend that you stay put and stay on track. Simply go to a different school for a Masters degree. Diversification is good. :)

    MikeM,

    I am currently with Troy University; and hopefully I am graduating by December 'cause my deployment. If you want to graduate by the end of this Year, Then I recommend you stay with University of Phoenix. Here is a PRO and CON for you on Troy University.

    PRO: Accepts up 90 transfer credits. Five terms per year, Can take up to 5 classes per term if student is full-time. 3 classes per term if student is part-time. $150/credits; which is affordable.

    CON: Does all credits are applied from BSIT of UoP to be transfered for BSSC at TROY U? I don't think so...take a look at the website: http://fwrdl.troy.edu/

    I really enjoy Troy University, but some class Professor acts completely different.

    And you are right, University of Phoenix is expensive; and the public opinion somehow off and on.

    Before you want to transfer to Troy University; check with the admission office, and ask for advise....and evaluation.

    Good Luck with your decision.

    My TROY UNIVERSITY status: Currently I have 80 credit on official evaluation. And taking 9 credits. Also, I am trying to transfer some more from TESC. Hopefully by the end of this term I get 111 credits. GPA: 3.0, Major: Computer Science, Minor: Military Science.

    Semper Fi,
    Henry

    Despite all of the negative comments that are made about UoP, their degrees do seem to have widespread acceptance among employers and graduate schools. After all, they are regionally-accredited, and that's really what counts. If you feel you are getting the education you are paying for, then I think I would tough it out for 9 more months and just get the degree. You would be lucky to have every single credit transfer, although I am sure there is a school somewhere that would accomodate you. However, you may not graduate as early as you would like.

    If you simply just cannot afford UoP anymore, I wouldn't just limit myself to Troy University, and I would get something IN WRITING from the school you plan to transfer to stating they will transfer all of your credits. Otherwise, you really are throwing good money after bad.

    Thanks to everyone for the suggestions. I have decided to just finish out at UoP. My employer is kicking in tuition reimbersement, although it's only 3k a year. However, they roll over the amount to the following years until they have paid me back all the tuition I paid. I can afford it, just second guessing myself I guess.
