Online Courses: The quality of the online courses worked well for me. I was able to complete my degree at my own pace and timing. This was huge for me because I was a single working mother at the time and I needed to be home with my children in the evenings.

Academic Experience: At the time I was a Social Science major with a concentration in Education and a Minor in Psychology. The classes were very interesting and the class assignments were easy to complete because they were online and I was able to work and be at home with my children at night.

Academic Experience: I earned my Bachelor of Arts degree at Ashford University online. The experience worked well with my schedule at the time, because I was a working single mother and I was able to work all day and still be at home with my children at night while I worked on my degree. This was a huge advantage for me and I am very greatful for the opportunity that Ashford University gave to me. Thank you very much!

Campus Resources: Inside Scoop – I am very glad that they have almost all the academic programs avaliable online for student's who are not able to attend a campus. My program that I am involved in is the Early Education program and I am looking to changing my degree to Criminal Justice. I am glad that they have this available, with being a full time parent I am not always able to leave my home and attend a campus so I am glad that Ashford has these programs available to me and to other students in my situation.

Career Services: I am still in school so I don't know yet how this will work, but I hope if I need help finding a job they will be of great help.

4 College Senior

Student Body: I Work Onine – I do my work online so the students I interact live near and far. It's fun because may sometimes you learn a few new things about places where they live.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: Online Classes – Making sure that you are able to do your homework on time each Tuesday/Thursday/Monday make sure you have time. If not ask for extra time in turning in your work. If you make the time to do your work you will be able to do online classes easily.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Love It – I love my Early Education major, my classes at first were just the basics, but now they are all about what will be happening in the school. Teaching you to understand the way work and preparing you for your education job.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Being able to log on anytime within a 24 hour period throughout the week is an awesome experience. It also allows me to pursue other activities in my life like working. The courses are easy to follow and participate in and I can complete my school work with little to no assistance or problems.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: More Interaction – I would love more interaction or faster responses from the teachers. I love that the students do have time to talk to each other via email, and ask for questions. Other than that if the professors were faster at their responses I would have a better and quicker help doing my homework, but I understand because I am taking classes online.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition and financial aid at this school is good. I receive mine in a timely manner. I wish I had more in scholarships. My loans are very high,

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Foundation of Finance – This is the best professor I have had. He is very active in class discussions and takes his time explaining things when the class has a hard time with certain discussions. He emails us in a quick fashion. The class is done online and enjoyed learning from this instructor I had.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: My Ba in accounting gpa is around 3.50 however i am going for a minor also and so far my gpa is 3.70.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I have been school in awhile. So online is easier.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Classroom Flexibility – It's nice too be able to go online when ever I have time set aside but sometimes emegencise come up and I can work around them.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Student Loans – I have been out of school for 30 years but I think the student loans are kin of high.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Computer Tec. we have online computer tecs all day and free tecs after hours that are more than happy to help!

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Writing Center/Constellation – they have a wonderful writting center shows you how to write in APA format. Spelling and grammer checkvery helpful and friendly

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: HARD Classees – This is not for the faint of heart. I have hard classes and not silly ones that waste my time and money. If you aren't serious about college and don't want to invest a lot of time, don't go here.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Not a Lot of Time to Do Your Work – The classes are great and in depth, but there is only five weeks to complete work assigned, and when you have one huge research paper to write for a final and they assign you additional small research papers to write, things can be difficult. But for the most part, the instructors stay in contact with you and guide you through the class when necessary.
In addition, the classes are not "silly" classes and are college worthy. For example, I have taken 2 English Comp classes and a Computer Literacy course (not easy) and I'm now on Cultural Anthropology. I truly feel like I am in college and not just wasting my money on silly courses.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I Am Content – As the title says I am currently content only because when I first started everything was great with receiving my financial aide on time from FAFSA, however it's been a little over 30 days since the new year has started and I haven't gotten any word regarding the new year for financial aide to help me and it is very frustrating. Grant it It was my fault due to some tax information that was missing, but that was turned in so long ago that I should have gotten some sort of word by now and it seems the Ashford doesn't practice a sense of urgency in regards to getting my financial aide processed.

College Sophomore

Career Services: I'm Only in My Second Year – I have only started my second year at Ashford and haven't even researched my options with it's career center. However I am hoping that it will help me in the State of California due to the fact that it's closer to my parents which I help as much as I can because I'm an only child and my father is disabled.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have had teacher who seem to enjoy what they do and some that treat you as if you are a bother to them. The workload is a bit tedious sometimes but that is because of all of the papers that we seem to write.

College Senior

Campus Resources: I go to school online so I am unaware of the campus resources.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: as of right now im awaiting enrollment at ashford i am on file and ready to start im waiting on additional paper work but as far as finicial aid with ashford im not sure ive applied for fasfa myself online and just waiting to hear back im hoping the staff are nice and patient with me when applying for student loans etc

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.
