College Sophomore

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: After being out of school for such a long time, I really appreciated my advisors help with my FAFSA, she walked me right through it, she also relieved my apprehension toward taking an online class by walking me through the online classroom program. She was AWESOME!

5 College Senior

Student Body: I Am Taking Online Classes – Even in taking online classess, I have gotten to know some of my classmates and look forward to meeting them at graduation time.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Going back to college was a bit intimidating for me after being out of school for 26 years, but it was the BEST decision that I have ever made. The time flies by so quickly. I like how each class is organized and know exactly what is required and when it is due. I recommend Ashford University for people that have a family and work full-time, their online experience is exceptional and before I know it I will have my Bachelors degree in Health Care Administration.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not yet went to the career center, but I do plan to do so, once I get further into my classes, so that I can be better prepared for careers I may find of interest.

College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Explanation of No Transfers. The reason this grade is n/a is because I chose to start fresh and not use any of my old credits, I have been out for to long and felt it best to start as a new student without transferring any credits so that I would have a better chance to succeed and refresh on anything I may have forgotten.

3 College Junior

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I think the work is really easy ,because the teacher assistant is their to help you at all times.All you have to do go over previous lectures from the past weeks and you can not go wrong.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: My experience with Ashford Univewrsity so far there is no communication when it comes to advisor and student.They do not call me at all.I can say University of Phoenix always keep a check on you every other two weeks.Overall it is a good school to go to and be apart of the team.

College Junior

Campus Resources: I Go Online – I attend Ashford's online education program and do not physically attend the campus. I know that the resources for going online are excellent and extremely useful.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Online Responsibility – I like how the student is fully responsible for the grade. My grade never depends on group projects. This is important for me because I'm paying for my experience to be placed in my hands alone.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: The online classes here are on your time at your pace within a 5 week timeline per class. your grade will be reflective of your academic abilities and dedication to completing your assignments on time, i.e. discussion posts/replies and papers.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: As with any school you get a full range of instructors although, overall most will take an active interest in your accademic achievements and assist the student within limits.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The library at Ashford is great, although its new format tales a little getting used to it has every resource you will need to complete youe assignments.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Excellent School With Great Support – I was very pleased with my online experience and the academic support I received. I would recommend the school to anyone looking to build their hiring potential. Because this is online I did not get to enjoy all the campus activities available to other campus students.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: It Takes a Lot of Discipline – The online classes take a lot of discipline with time management. However, that is to be expected with not only online classes but with traditional classes.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition Is Very Low – The tuition is very low for this school. There are a lot of schools out there that are very expensive. By the time I recieve my Bachelor's it will only be $40,000. For a lot of colleges that would be the cost for one year.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Professors Are Great – If I could meet all of my instructors that I have had the pleasure of coursing with, I probably would hug a few. Their involvement in all of the discussions not only fed me with some great instruction, they made what was being taught fun.

Overall Experience: Excellent School – I have attended an online school before and it is nothing compared to Ashford. Ashford is concerned with your success at graduating and everyone is very helpful and wants you to succeed.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Try to Stay on Top – By responding to all classroom discussions no matter how short or quaint, please add something for students to digest. This will always make your instructors happy about what is going on in their classes. I try to maintain a positive attitude with everyone I respond to and adding some humor to their already stressed state.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The online library is not the best and kind of hard to understand how to use it. The librarians that are available are not always knowledgeable on the useage of the library and sometimes you end up with the same answers as what you would recieve through the library links.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Teacher's Assitants and Tutors – In my classes they have teacher's assistants which I have never had in online classes I have taken in the past. They also have tutors available 24 hours a day, which is also something that I have never experienced. I think that it is very helpful to be able to have a tutor at any availability because, not everyone has a schedule that can accommodate only daytime tutors.

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.
