4 College Student

Campus Resources: Online is awesome! Teachers are fair and helpful. Admission was easy.

4 College Student

Student Body: Wide Variety – My school is online , many people from all walks of life. Working fathers, mothers, military families, and even students right out of high school. So many ethnicities,which I enjoy because you get to hear where they are from and how different they grew up.

5 College Student

Online Courses: Oustanding Academic Integrity – Ashford university's professionalism and want for student success is the best.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: It Is Convenient – Doing work online is very convenient for me because I do have a family to attend to. I think that if I were in a class, I probably would understand things better, but I use the "Ask your Instructor" , when I am in need of more help. I actually thought that it would be hard for me, but since I have been going for a while now, it isn't as hard and frustrated to me. With the pain that I be in, it is easier for me when I am having a bad day, because I have the choice of doing work versus not having a choice to go to class. It make it much easier for me to attend on a regular basis.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Frustrations I Had – This is the first time I have entered into college. At the beginning, I would get really frustrated, because I didn't understand how to write my research papers. I could not get my APA font correct, and at times when I wrote my paper I would delete all of it. I believe that I was nervous about going back to school after such a long time and I didn't think that I would understand how and what to do. Now that I have been in school, I have found that I can get around in my student portal and search different things better than when I started.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Classes That I Take – I'm working on my associates in early childhood development, and my classes are not what I had expected. I am assuming that the classes that I am taking right now are classes that has to be taken when you first enter college. The classes that I have taken thus far has been very exciting to me though. I have learned so much since I have been college about the various topics I have already taken. I have noticed that my up coming classes are more related to my major and I am really excited to get to them.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I feel that we have ample time to turn in our assignments. There is not a whole lot of work to do at one time. It is easy to find your information if you have read the necessary readings. Also, if you stay on task, the work that is given is not a whole lot, so there is no reason why it should not be turned in on time unless you have to deal with something that is not related to school. For example, your child has an activity at school, or there is some other appointment that you have to attend, or even a household matter.

College Junior

Career Services: Haven't Had the Chance Yet. I honestly cannot review the Career Services yet because I have not dealt with them. I do expect them to be very helpful as the rest of the staff I have dealt with has been.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Excellent Educational Experience – I have just started my core classes so I cannot review them. However, I think I should have had a bit more choice in what gen eds I was able to take. Other than that, I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Ashford.

4 College Student

Student Body: the students in my classes are very helpful if you need something they share good thoughts in the discussion area and everyone is friendly

Tuition & Financial Aid: Scolarships and Tuition – They seem to increase their tuition a lot, and offer no in school scholarships for their students.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have seen in most of my classes that we have an instructor and an instructors assistant. I find this to be extremely helpful, as we have two people available to use if we are in need of help. I have also had a great experience with my instructors when I have needed help. They are always there when I have needed them, and very helpful.

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!

5 College Senior

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.

5 College Senior

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.

3 College Sophomore

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.

5 College Freshman

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

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Criminal Justice – I have taken a couple classes that I am still trying to figure out why they are apart of the Criminal Justice curriculum, still can't figure out how they work in with that major.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: No compliants here so far. Have been a student for a year now.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Before applying I did hear a lot of bad stories about the FA department. So far my process has went good. Just make sure you turn information in on time and you will be good to go!

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.
