Our statement regarding VA decision to not interrupt use of GI Bill® benefits by new or current University of Phoenix students

By University of Phoenix

PHOENIX, July 02, 2020 — “The University has always respected that student veterans have earned the right to choose the institutions that best fit their needs, and this news vindicates that principle. As the VA has aptly noted, “Since 2013, the VA has conducted 130+ compliance reviews of UoP locations, to include specific marketing reviews in 2017 and 2019. UoP has fully complied with these audits. No findings related to deceptive or misleading advertising or marketing were cited.”

“We extend our gratitude to the many University of Phoenix students, alumni, and employees (particularly our veteran employees) who made their voices heard directly with the VA. These stories formed a powerful narrative about the value and life-changing impact of a University of Phoenix education, and clearly made a difference. Most importantly, their voices have helped ensure access to higher education for future generations of students.”
