Academic Experience: I give them an A on the class registration process I think that the way they get students started is actually helpful and benefit each student. They have an online open conference before you start your classes and people log in to the conference call an perform task with other students to ensure they know how to login to the classes and see where they do there home work.

Online Courses: This is the first time for me to take an online course. I do miss the interaction in the classroom and meeting new people and having our small discussion groups. I think it is more of a challenge and it helps me to focus more on my discussion questions and assigments.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Ashford University online classes are so versatile for my lifestyle right now. I work 38 to 40 hours a week and I am a full-time caregiver for my ill sister.

Career Services: When I graduate in 2013, I plan on utilizing Ashford University's Career Center. I am 50 years old and I have had lots of job opportunities, but my dream is to land a job in a hospital or nursing care facility as a Health care Administrator, CEO or Vice President of the organization.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I did pretty well with my financial aid. I got the amount I need to get through school. The financial aid office at my school helped make the process easier.

Academic Experience: With all the online features, contacting the teacher or other studens is a click away

Academic Experience: The online Ashford University curriculum is almost perfect. Each class has the same basic structure. They are each 5 weeks long, class beginning on Tuesday and ending on Monday is one week. The weekly assignments for all classes usually have reading and research for two discussions due on Thursday, then additional work like papers and quizzes and replies in the classroom to other students discussion posts are due on Monday. This schedule routine makes it easy to plan outside for other obligations and keep some structure. It is no problem to take time off in between classes and is easily approved online within one day. The instruct.ors are extremely helpful, experienced, and go out of their way to add to the learning experience for everyone. Advisors, are very helpful and always follow up personally with a phone call at various intervals during your attendance, to check on your progress and needs if any. I learn a lot better by being able to research and read and reply at my own pace with additional time if needed to post the replies and discussions. I value my learning time for the most part, and do not dread doing the work. I have had an excellent experience with the Online Ashford University.

Campus Resources: Technology is very important in today's society. I love taking online classes because you are basically teaching yourself. But you still have some help with your instructor. Overall, the computer networking speed is great.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I really love my school because the teachers care about me. They really want to see me succeed. I am taking online classes in Ashford.

Academic Experience: The academic program at Ashford University is superb! The instructors are helpful and wonderfully educated professionals. Most allow you some leeway if you are experiencing problems. They are willing to assist you in so many ways. I love my instructors and their teaching capabilities. Keep up the great work Ashford U! The administration department is wonderful, my financial aid representative is helpful and understanding.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I can get my whole degree online. I can long on to my class when every I have the time.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: Each class is 5 weeks to the work load can be intense but then one only has one class at a time, so one can concentrate solely on the one class. There are discussion boards that need to be done every week and at least 2 essays on 1 major paper and there may or may not be quizes. I like the idea being able to do my work at anytime while not leaving my home or I can go camping in the summer and take my classroom with me. Even with the heavier work load I prefer an online class over a traditional classroom.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: As an online student a computer is a must. There online resources are pretty good and there really is no trouble getting into your classes via computer.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: The online library is really great, but could use more books to use for papers and research. there is plenty of articles, however the choice of books is a little on the sparse side at times depending on the particular class that you are doing research for.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The online program is by far superior than most that I contacted, Tuition is reasonable and the fact that it is an actual brick and mortar school, makes the degree all that much more valuable.

3 College Junior

Career Services: My grades were A's and B's, until I gotten sick and my dad passed. I had to dropp put and just re-enrolled. However, they did drop my GPA

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am very pleased with the instuctors. They ask questions that promote out-of-the-box thinking,as well as, give detailed feedback on post and assignments.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am an Early Childhood Ed. major and my classes are better than I expected, so far. I am happy with the workload and it is not too overwhelming.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It took my a while to figure out where I was going to attend school, but one of the deciding factors was a positive review U.S. News and World Report and the lower than average tuition here at Ashford. I've already used a lot of my possible loan money so a low tuition was crucial.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: The course work is challenging and most of the instructors are helpful but the financial aid process is more like speaking with a sales office than financial advisors.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I haven't graduated yet, but I figure that I should have at least heard something from someone by now. No one from the school has reached out to me yet, but I still have a year to go so hopefully someone will start to contact me soon.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Ashford is very flexible it allows me to work and still get my education. Everything has been easy as far as getting into school they have the best advisers and teachers and they genuinely care.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: At Ashford University the learning experience is far more challenging in the online class than any other college classes I had to attend in person. They have the most awesome advisors and faculty who are always on the ball to answer any questions that might arise. The Teachers and Assistants go way out of their way to help the students my Academic advisor rocks. Every question I have had no matter what time or what day she is on it and if she does not know she connects me to a person with an answer. I am never left hanging.
The Ebooks that are our textbooks are awesome the whole program is awesome. To bad more colleges do not have online programs like Ashford University!!

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.
