Online Courses: The best decision I ever made – I am so glad I choose Ashford. They have been wonderful. I am an older student and I have so much encouragement from everyone especially the professors. They have the greatest and most helpful professors I have ever known. They encourage you all the way and are very positive when it comes to the students. They make your college experience one to remember. I tell everyone how much I enjoy my classes here and even try to get them to sign up. As I am focusing on my masters degree I will only consider continuing at Ashford because of the positive experiences I have had. That help you out through everything you may need them for. You do not always here from instructors as soon as you should but I have never waited over 24 hours to hear back from my instructors or office staff. They are really great!

Student Body: Working and Non-Traditional – There are people from every ethnic group, sex, economic level, religion, etc. that I have had classes with. This school is really very diverse. Many of the students I have met are either working or parents who want more. They are both young and older. Everyone is treated the same and I have never felt any different in any of my classes.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Happy With My School Choice – I enjoy being an Ashford student. The professors have been so great. I have had nothing but encouragement from everyone all the way. I plan to pursue my masters degree and want it to come from Ashford. I love how the professors are always available when needed and usually get in touch with you within 24 hours. I take classes online and I feel I have learned more through this experience than I did at a previous college campus. They encourage students to build personal relationships, to work together and I have met so many people from all over the U.S. It's just a great school and I tell everyone that this is the best place to get your education.

Career Services: Career Center Helpful – As a student they are always having online seminars to help you to get more employment ready and are willing to help with the process of interviewing and resumes. I have found they are very helpful and are willing to help me if the need arises. I always get prompt feedback.

Academic Flexibility: The reason I chose Ashford University online is that they offered the degree I was looking for. Not only that but the length of each class was another factor for making this my college. Each class is only five weeks long, but you have a lot to cover in those five weeks. Things like discussion post, test, and many assignments. the best part is you only have the one class for the five weeks where other University's will cover two classes in nine weeks.

Student Body: There are students from all different areas of the world.

Academic Flexibility: No Hassles – the reason I chose this school is because a friend of mine referred me. It was the right fit for me because the classes were only five weeks long. That way it would be easier for me to remain focused on my studies without giving up.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: Online Students – I can only speak from the online perspective. They are individuals that are focuseed on work and family life while attempting to further their education. it is not always common that the students have time to communicate with one another.

Student Body: I dont know them personally, but I do know they are diverse in Age, Gender, Ethnicity, and the way they think.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Great Flexibility – The school had me turn in any transcripts and military schooling I had and applied it towards my degree plan. They are very understandable if an event arrises that prevents you from going to school and work with you to prevent any penalties in financial aid or probation periods. I think they are the easiest faculty and staff i have ever delt with.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a little older so its all about the learning and getting that Bachelors degree. The military Office personell were easy to work with and helped me get started and also to get to where I am now. The teachers and instructors had a wealth of knowledge that is helpful when turning in assignments. I am happy with what I am learning and what I am acheiving. I like my school.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Courses Are Applicable to the Real World – The course that I am taking at Ashford University are applicable to the real world and make me a better global citizen by informing me about current issues.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Flexible Online Learning – Ashford University is a great school for non-traditional students because of its online learning program. Students take one course for 5 weeks and there are minimal participation requirements to meet. The program makes it easy for a mother, like me to finish a degree while not taking away from the rest of life.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Well Worth It!! I am glad I stumbled across the financial aid process. For years, I have been tormented by not achieving my degree and searched endlessly for a solution. With this experience, I plan to achieve something that has eluded me for years. The only thing that will be better than achieving my degree is having the satisfaction of my wife and kids seeing me achieving my degree.

4 College Student

Academic Experience: Adult Development and Discussions – Being my age and what I have been through in my life made this class much easier for me. I have been able to accept my life and the things that i have gone through and no that everything that has happened in my life is not my fault. I know that God has allowed things to happen so that I can get my degree to be able to help others who are going through or have gone through similar things in their lives. My instructor and my teaching assistant have been very helpful in their responses to mine and the others in the class's discussions. I believe I have made a good decission to enroll in Ashford University.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Happy With My Choice – almost all of my credits were accepted. I am very glad.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was very nervous entering school, after all it had been 30 years since I had entered a classroom. But the teachers and staff were phenomenal! When I needed help they were there. The avalibility and desire of the staff to see their students succeed was amazing. Wfith their help and support I have been able to keep my GPA fairly high and have learned an astonishing amount. Go Ashford!!!

5 College Freshman

Student Body: We Have a Diverse Population of Students at Our School. Our school has a diverse group of people, both in teachers as well as students. We have those fresh out of high school to the working single mom to the gay community. All races interact together to create a unique learning enviroment. Because we are a mixed group of people, this creates a wider band of knowledege and opinions in the classroom. Ultimately, we are all there to better ourselves so we can better our future.

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.
