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.

Campus Resources: The online program is making it easier to finish my degree and get on with my life.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Time Management Important – The classes are only 5 weeks long, so it's very important that you be able to manage your time. You can very easily get behind if you don't. Also pay close attention to attendance requirements. It's very easy to get marked absent if you don't. You can easily get dropped without meaning to.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Good for the Money – The main reason I chose Ashford was the cost. I was able to use my status as DOD employee to get the discounted military rate.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great School – I found Ashford very friendly and easy to work with. I just recently encountered difficulty with Ashford with their finance department. I was told conflicting stories and they are not helping me seek funding.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Resource Library – Ashford has upgraded their library to fit all subject matter you are researching and the information is indepth.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Real Life Learning – Ashford University takes what you are learning into real life scenarios. In the management classes they gives you a certain situation to overcome or find improvement through the studies of what we have learned. This is not just management, also with Math, Communications, and any subject matter you are studying at the time.

Student Body: Students at My School – Most students at my school are older and going back to school. They are working students who have families. There is a large diversity of students at my school. Every student is different in some way whether it is ethnicity, race, religion, sex, etc.

College Student

Academic Flexibility: I have just started at Ashford University but so far the experience has been great. Everyone is nice and have explained things great. The classes seem very flexible. It has been a hassle with transferring my credits but that is because of my other school.

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.
