4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The online library is very helpful especially since I do all of the classes online. I found out some great information and it was easy to access.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: I currently go to college online at Ashford but with all of the help that you can get from the IT department and employees. It feels like im right on the campus grounds. Having access to the internet and being able to do my homework online is wonderful.

3 College Senior

Student Body: Part Time Students and Full Time Employees – Most of the students that I go to school with have full or part time jobs and go to school part time. I think that it is great that everyone is going to school to get a better education because knowledge is power. Some of us wish that we started years ago but at lease we are attending college now.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: No Troubles – They have created an excellent schedule for me. It tells me what classes I have accomplished, what classes are scheduled, and even my current GPA. I love the efficiency of online learning through Ashford.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: They are always easy to manage when working full time. I have yet to struggle with one of their online courses. I look forward to all my future classes!

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Online Body – The instructors are great, however the students are mostly full time working civilians that have struggled with school many times in their life. The vocabulary I have seen used is below average.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Received Legit Credits for Military Training – Not many schools out there offer credits for military training, and not only does Ashford apply credit to your transcript, but they are always helpful to military personnel.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Best Educational Decision – This school has the best online setup I have encountered thus far in my life. Easy to navigate, simple to turn in homework, and the instructors are very understanding of student schedules.

4 College Senior

Career Services: Career Center Helpful – I have not graduated yet, but a close friend of mine attending and used their services and she was very pleased. She went on a few interviews and found the career center to be very helpful and they gave her a lot of confidence.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: Not a Complete Library – Resources are okay, found more variety of databases on line

1 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The cost is too too too high. Financial aid process was terrible, I still have an available balance. Still deciding to cancel loan, even though they gave me a completion date of Dec 2013

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Very Flexible! Careful time management helps me to work towards deadlines without having to limit myself to a certain window in which I have to be in class.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I Love It! I've been with Ashford a little over a year now, and I really do love this set-up. I definitely prefer it to the hustle and bustle and strict time constraints of traditional university campuses. The due dates for my assignments are always on the same days, so I have no trouble remembering what needs to be turned in by when.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I personally think that the cost of education in America is ridiculously overpriced. I think that it's unfortunate that in our pursuit to better ourselves, we are basically indebted for years. Hopefully, I will be able to find work immediately after leaving college so I can begin paying back my loans before the interest gets out of hand. I think that Ashford is providing me with a high quality education, and I am thankful that online schooling is even an option!

3 College Junior

Career Services: U-tube video lectures give advice on career choices.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Willing to answer any questions I have to complete form.

Overall Experience: My instuctor's are quit knowledgable about the subject matter. The assignments challenging and often fulfill my expectations.

Student Body: Students Gather at the Portal. We have a place for online students to gather and socialize called the portal. It gives us a chance to get better aquanted.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Has Major Issues – There are some major issues going on with the campus resources. A teacher asks you to your the library and it is ALWAYS down. You need to find information on something and go to do it with the information you were told from a teacher and still nothing works.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Bad Choice – Wish I would have looked into this more! At first everyone was nice and called you right back. However, when something goes wrong or you need help no one will return an email or call ! I simply wanted to change my degree and still can not get a single person to help me! This is going on the third month and I am feed up!

1 College Sophomore

Career Services: Wasn't My First Choice. I decided to go to Ashford University because I needed to stay home with my son. It was easier to stay home and take online classes than not taking any classes at all. However, I am happy to say I want to go to a different school. Even though it is an online school, you have NO contact with anyone! Ya you have your classes with other students and you can talk back and forth but what are you learning? I have been trying to get a hold of someone at Ashford so I can change my degree yet NO ONE will contact me back. Just goes to show they really do not care about their students!

Feed Up!

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The teachers and the schedule is very flexible. This allows me to be able to balance out, work, the Army Reserves, school, and my work out program :)

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great Service – I have been to two different Universities. Overall, this is my favorite experience so far. They are really accomadating towards military families and their rates are excellent. So far they have made every step a breeze. The staff is extremely friendly!!!

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very Helpful – My advisor helped me every step of the way providing me feedback and providing it quickly.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Amazing Experience – My first class with Ashford University was very different than other online schools. Since you only take one class for five weeks, your peers are more open to answering questions and helping you out. It was an amazing experience and I met some really great friends!

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.
