Career Services: They Have Not Helped Me Out Yet – They have given me the tools to succeed but I feel that could help me to go to a better school or get the job I desire.

4 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: I Really Had a Good Overall Experience Here – I liked Ashford University and feel that they challenged me and had me reach down and dig to make good grades. I did have some problems in the process where they mishandled my money and caused me a lot of stress and feel that the way they handled that situation was wrong.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am not in agreement the way the tuition and is handled at the university. I take online classes and I have not been there a year and my tuition have went up already and I do not like the disbursement of the excess funds. I know it costs but I feel like I should have been locked into my fees for at least a year.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Not Really Impressed – I like the school because it fits into my schedule. I just hope I am going to be prepared to be in the work force with the lack of professor attention.

Academic Experience: I have been at Ashford for a year, I really enjoy it here, the instructors are very helpful and working online is such a convenience. I am obtaining my Bachelors in Health Care Studies so far, my classes have been as I have expected and the course materials are easily available. The instructors provide important feedback; that helps to ensure all corrections are made effectively and to help recognize potential areas of improvement.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Throughout my courses at Ashford, I have come across a wide variety of people. It is amazing to know that people across the globe are attending the same courses as me. Along with location, the people at Ashford have a variety of backgrounds, offering a wide array of personal experiences, opinions, and insights.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have had a relatively positive experience with most of my teachers; however, their level of interaction varies greatly. Even students who are performing well enjoy positive comments on homework and discussion topics. I find that when professors are more involved, I push myself harder to continue conversations and deliver stellar assignments.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Network Reliability and Speed – Overall, Ashford's network for online classes is speedy. There have been one or two occasions where network maintenance has interfered with not only my assignment submission, but affected many student's across the globe. They are pretty good about announcing when maintenance is scheduled, but somehow these two slipped through the cracks. Thankfully, teacher's and instructors were generous enough to allow a one day extension.

5 College Junior

Student Body: At Ashford there's not really discrimination heard about because we have a huge portion of the student body that is from different countries. So all the students from all the different countries usually just mix together and hang out and enjoy each others company without any problems.

College Senior

Campus Resources: Unfortunately I have not had the opportunity to experience and of the coampus resources offered.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Diversity Is the Key – I can definitely say that Ashford Univeristy is a very diverse school where everyone is accepted.

College Senior

Career Services: I haven't had the opportunity to experience anything that career services has to offer.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Education at No Cost – Ashford University has a tuition that allows the working mom a chance at a new start!

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Simple Class Schedules for on-Line Students – I like the fact that as an on-line student that I only have to take one class at a time. It gives me a chance to put all of my focus and attention to that class. With a family and I job, keeping up with one class is a challenge at times, having mulitples would never work for me.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Scheduled Network Maintenace Issues – Ashford seems to still be working out the kinks within it's networks. There are times when scheduled maintenances will begin early without warning and the school will have to give extensions to the students because they are unable to sumbit work. This can be frustrating for all parties I am sure.

It seems as though the time difference plays a large role in this issue for some areas.

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.
