About

What They’re Known For

In 1976, John Sperling founded University of Phoenix so working men and women could go to college and earn their degree. What began in Phoenix, Arizona, grew to become the largest private university in North America with more than 100 campuses and learning centers. Now, students come here for an education that is relevant to their lives and to the world around them.

University of Phoenix is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association. University of Phoenix was placed on Notice by The Higher Learning Commission, effective June 27, 2013. Notice is a Commission sanction indicating that an institution is pursuing a course of action that, if continued, could lead it to be out of compliance with one or more Criteria for Accreditation. An institution on Notice remains accredited. At the end of the Notice period, The Higher Learning Commission Board of Trustees may remove the sanction, place the institution on Probation if the identified concerns have not been addressed, or take other action.
