This, totally.

I think I have 15 grad credits with UoPeople now. From my perspective, I was just there for the cheap credits to transfer back to Walden. UoPeople needs a major overhaul. I will say though that one of the best professors I ever met was from UoPeople, and he even was kind enough to write me a recommendation letter for law school. That being said, the biggest issues are 1) administrative/clericals with poor English language and comprehension skills, 2) inability to get transcripts evaluated prior to taking classes, 3) lack of the professors' abilities to deal with plagiarism, 4) some professors are far more involved than others. I actually would only use the credits to transfer to another school. Even trying to get my UoPeople transcript sent to my law school LSAC CAS account took months and was a nightmare. So glad to be done there.

I am curious which UoPeople credits transferred to Walden.  I signed up for a marketing class before I found Walden.  Not sure if I should try to complete the marketing class.
Edinboro University of PA - BA, Socioloy (1997)

I am attending University of the People and overall enjoy the experience. But their automated email system leaves a lot to desire. I get a lot of automated emails that are clearly not for me (I am in a master's program and they are geared towards undergrads), so I just delete them. I have found that the easiest way to get most things done is to use the student self-service dashboard and avoid emails whenever possible. If you're having trouble figuring out how to use the dashboard or get the thing done that you want to get done, the folks on the University of the People Reddit board can be very helpful.

It a waste of time I think that school campus is established in the backyard of the school founder, He is making this very cheap doing marketing outside the US to catch more international student in a program that is not valid in other places due to its poor academic recognition, the founder just want to collect money, compare to Pen foster college they have most of their courses are ACE accredited and you can even use their credits in any other accredited University.

Your opinion seems fairly uninformed. Of course a University of the People degree will not be recognized everywhere for every purpose. In the United States, for example, degrees and licensures earned in other countries are often not recognized for a variety of purposes. That's why one runs into so many immigrant doctors and professors who work as taxi drivers or janitors. So I don't expect my US degree to be recognized everywhere else. I don't necessarily expect it to be recognized within the United States by everybody. Some people will dismiss it because of the name, some people will dismiss it because of its DEAC accreditation, some people dismiss it because it's not Harvard. But why should I care when I'm going there because of my personal interest in learning? And why do you feel obliged to comment on my personal decisions and give your opinion on how I should live my life? I have never met you and you don't know what my educational goals are. Inserting your opinion and telling me that living my life the way I want to is a "waste of time" when all I did was offer my experience for getting around the troubles with the UofPeople email system is rude and unnecessary. Please keep your comments on topic and do not give people advice if they didn't ask you for it.
