5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Class Registration Process – Class registration process, it is not hard at all, with the academic adviser staying in touch with you either by phone, or email, more than once a day. It makes life a lot less stressful

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition prices are awesome, with that being said you have to understand at most institutions the fees are double and the staff is not friendly especially after they have gotten your tuition from loans. Ashford is different the professors attend this university really care about their students each and every one. I guess their philosophy is each and every student is a reflection of us. Oh and I almost forgot when applying for financial make sure you have Mozilla/Firefox, mandatory plus.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Advisory Friendly – The friendly student advisory that constantly keep me in check and keep me informed about my scheduled, and are friendly about any questions that I may think about asking about.

Overall Experience: So far at Ashford University I absolutely love this school. I plan to continue and get my masters and my doctors degree. I think its uniqueness is the friendless of the staff, whether it is the academic advisers or the professors. I only wish I had attended Ashford a long time ago. I probably would have relocated to be closer to the university.

Academic Flexibility: The school ashford university is totally convenience to me because I have online classes. This is due to the complicated scheduled I have. Since I was unemployed I am constantly putting in applications so when I get a break I check in on what is my to do list and then I just get it done. It can be anything from getting the transfer of credits to homework.

Student Body: I take my classes online so the student body is a little different that in person. Anyway it is very different. You have student from all background, all races, and all religions. That it one of the things I love about this online class. You never get to meet the student in person and you can only imagine how the person look from the description of the way the invidiousness describes his or her situation.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I attended Ashford University from 2010 to 2011 and I obtained my Master of Arts in Health Care Administration-online on August 8, 2011. I could not have chosen a better school this is why I am going back on August 18, 2012 to obtain my Master of Arts in Education-online. The teachers were very helpful and insightful throughout my my whole attendance at Ashford, as well was the financial team, and administrative team.

Thanks a lot Ashford University and Staff!

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have been at Ashford University (online) for over a year and I do enjoy it a lot. The instructors and TA's are vey helpful and they have pretty good response time as well. Anything, that I may find myself having troubles in, I do not hesitate to request assistance and they provide the most efficient help.

Campus Resources: Great Online Resources – I loved Ashford resources because their resources are always accessible.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Wonderful Advisors and Instructors – Their always there when you need them and they are also very understanding!

5 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: I say Ashford is AWESOME because their Advisors and Instructors are always there to help you with any situation.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Finanical Aid Funds – It seem like the school stalls on funds and at the end of the year most funds not used are returned back.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Good Transfere – I recieved credits from a University I attended years earlier.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Major Worthwhile – While my chosen major has been very worthwhile, the general requirement courses have been very over-crowded and cookie-cutter education. In my major, I found the professors very helpful. However, I feel totally on my own, there is no financial aid for online students (online students are a cash cow) and no helpful academic advising.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Not Done Yet – I will return to Ashford if they keep their accredidation. Basically, I would be very happy if I did not have to go into debt for required classes that are meaningless to me. The stress of paying for college has definitely diminished my experience.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: ELL Program Is Tops – Although it is hard for me to digest so much information in 5 weeks, the professors I have had in this field have been excellent, with years of experience in the field. They have, for the most part, been valuable resources.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Pick and Choose Courses – I chose courses that had a direct impact on my job. However, I think most colleges are a huge rip-off when it comes to credits. I read a recent article stating that Ashford may lose its accredidation (!) because of top-heavy recruiting and skimpy advising, which I found to be true. I guess I'll find out when I transfer.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: Rigorous Academics – Ashford University is committed to developing the critical thinking skills required for a rigorous approach to study. Although I have not enjoyed every course, many far exceeded my expectations. I have been disappointed in the academic and financial advising, but have learned a tremendous amount from instructors who are passionate about their subject.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: I had been looking for the college that would fit my personal and professional goals for over a year. I decided that the reputation and stability that Ashford offered is the correct choice for me. There are times when family fun and other commitments coincide with deadlines for school and I choose school. I had a year to get things in order and my family support system is strong. With my hard work and determination combined with a strong personal commitment, I will graduate and become the successful business woman and community activist that I want to be.

College Junior

Online Courses: I Am New to the Program – I have not taken my first online class yet. My first online class starts August 7, 2012.

College Junior

Career Services: I Am New to the Program – I am new to Ashford University but I have heaard only good things from my co-workers who have attended here. I have been told that the career center was very helpful and available for assistance.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Good Customer Service at a Good Price – I just enrolled at Ashford University for the first time. I was a little nervous at first but after speaking to a representative, my confidence was restored. From that point, the administrative staff guided me through the process from start to finish. I am glad I made that initial phone call. Most of all, I am happy that the courses meets my needs and is very affordable. I give Ashford University two thumbs up.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I had excellent advise for the financial aid. They were available to walk me through the application. I was able to complete it on my own, but I knew I could call on them for help.

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.
