3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I had a very easy time filling out all the paperwork that was necessary for my financial aid. Only problem I had was with the technology fee that each online student must pay for during your first class. The fee is almost thirteen hundred dollars.

Academic Experience: Great Class Environment – In my psychology class was a very challenging class for me. The classes are each different except for the setup. It is a good school that offers a lot of support to its students and makes sure that their time at the school is a success. There are plenty of resources and online tools. Each class challenges you in different ways. After each class you learn a new set of skills and you have gained the knowledge necessary to pass your course.

Academic Experience: TA and Instructor. It is only my first course through Ashford, and it is online. So far, I've had more direct contact with the TA, but and comments to my posts have been made by the instructor, so far it seems both have contact with us. It seems if there are questions they get answered in a resonable amount of time.

Overall Experience: Pretty Good – I chose an online school, one because I work full time, and I don't feel like going to campus anymore. I attempted the local university and hated every minute of it, I'm just too old for that. The school administrators have been very good with helping me adjust to the online environment. I have no complaints.

Student Body: Diverse Body – I have attended Ashford's online community for two years and during that time I have found that the student body here come from all walks of life. From the working mom to the soldier in the field, anybody can attend as long as they have a basic working knowledge of computers, can utilize their time and be driven to write that paper even after a long 8 hour shift at work.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Community Vs University – When I attended a community college, getting financial aid approved was like pulling teeth without going to the dentist, very painful. When I arrived at Ashford they understood my needs and were very helpful in getting me approved. Twice in the past I found myself in a hardship situation where I was afraid that I would lose my place to live, thus losing my internet connection and jeopardizing my ability to attend an online school. Ashford understood and expedited my payout thus enabling me to pay my bills.

Online Courses: Online Vs. Classroom Experience. Being a returning student who is also managing a career, time is very valuable. Having the flexibility to take a streamlined course without losing content is very important. Doubling that, not having to schedule classroom time, being able to take part in discussions at anytime, day or night using a forum model is added value to me.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Persistance and Consistency – The price of education does not matter because of the rewards that I will receive in the end. You cannot put a price on your future.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I went back to school after many years. I have to say that Ashford has made it very easy for me and they transferred my credits from my other college and made the college experience very comfortable for me so far. I am going into my 3rd class and I like it because I only have to take 1 class every 5 weeks. Taking classes online is not as easy as it may seem as you have to be self disciplined, yet it fits into everyone's life if you let it. Ashford has really helped me every step of the way and the instructors really are there to help you whenever you have a question. Another good thing is that you can ask the other students questions as well so it is a great experience all and all.

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.
