2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's expensive, but I knew that going in. There is a very unexpected $1200 registration fee upon initial signup. That hurt!

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Courses are rigid, instructors are strict, and the work is very difficult, at times. But at the end of each course, I feel like I've just climbed a huge mountain! It's a challenge, but a very good challenge.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The text books designed specifically for Ashford University are lacking a lot of valuable information, sometimes. I usually have to do additional research to grasp an understanding of the concepts.

3 College Junior

Facilities: I have only seen the campus once, so I cannot accurately rate this aspect.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I have not utilized these features as often as I should, but they do make a big effort to include me every time. I am constantly getting invitations in my inbox.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It is much easier than I ever thought it would be. I was undecided on the focus I wanted for the first few years, and kept calling to change my major. My academic adviser never got annoyed with me and handled everything as if it only took a click of her mouse.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I prefer online courses, as I can choose to learn the information and contribute to classroom discussions at three in the morning if I want to.

5 College Junior

Student Body: An Ashford classroom seems to have at lease one representative from each nationality. I learn a lot, not only from the educational content, but from observing and communicating with other students.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Online classes are a must for me. I have had no problems communicating with my advisor thus far. I have not had any direct communication eith any peers or professors. The class requirements and work load appear to be very manageble.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: There are many different options in each degree category, which along with the information provided allowed me to choose the right one for me. The website is easy to navigate and any information you need is at your fingertips.

College Freshman

Facilities: I do not have enough experience to answer this question at this time.

College Freshman

Career Services: I have not used these services.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: This was not my first choice of schools. I had chosen another school, but received a call from Ashford and changed my mind. They were very patient and informative. I have had very good experiences so far with any questions I have had regarding school or financial aid. I am also very pleased with the class structure, I will be able to double up on classes during my off seasons at work. Which will allow me to graduate ahead of schedule.

College Freshman

Campus Resources: I am currently attending online.

Ashford University provides a great learning experience in a very unique environment. If you ask online Ashford students if they're happy with their choice to attend school there, most would probably say that they would do it all over again if they could, mainly because of its flexibility and convenience with schedules. The instructors are helpful and respond to questions in a timely manner, usually within one to two days. The instructors are helpful and encourage students to constantly look for better answers. Online classes are very convenient to students with complicated schedules; students can complete assignments at their own leisure, yet within the time constraints of deadlines. Most students find no problem completing their assignments.

A drawback of being an online student is that you don't have the opportunity to really check out the organizations or physical resources Ashford offers. However, the University does have an online library that students can go into from the Student Portal. The library is easy to use, and students can usually find most of the sources they need when writing a research paper. Even though it isn't your typical college interaction, the instructors and classmates are friendly and very helpful when you have questions. Students are able to help each other in unique ways. In one case, a student didn't have her book for class yet, and another student was able to scan a copy of the assignment and e-mail an attachment to her. Classmates are also helpful in post discussions and give each other timely advice and wisdom.
