Academic Flexibility: The Ease of Taking Courses, the Frustrations of Ever-Changing Advisors – Scheduling or re-scheduling courses at Ashford University was extremely easy. I maintained a good rapport with my academic advisors and they seemed to have no problems with rescheduling courses.
My only complaint might be that I had numerous academic advisors. It seemed that every time I became accustomed to an academic advisor and he/she was familiar with me and my academic progress, suddenly the advisor would be changed and I would have to start again.

Campus Resources: The online program is an easy way to get back into going to school. Its easier to manage being on my time with juggling work and my daughter. The instructors are available and try to gve as much personal feedback as possible.

Online Courses: It’s wonderful being able to take courses online at Ashford. Being a single father isn’t an easy task and I would have never gone back to school if it wasn’t for online schools.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My School – The ease of the courses from the comfort of your own home is amazing.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: Best Option for Busy Adults – I had concerns about attending college online since I came from a traditional campus college setting. My concerns were that I wasn't sure I would be able to interact effectively with other students and I thrive on feedback. I quickly discovered that I was able to interact just fine with students. One bonus that I found is that I can concentrate on a particular student in a discussion if the student and I are in agreement on a subject. The threads are unlimited so I can converse easily and at my convenience.

Academic Flexibility: I Have No Trouble Scheduling School and Work – I have a demanding full time work schedule and Ashford accommodates my needs perfectly. I have a 40 hour per week job and I own a business besides my full time job so scheduling school around my life is a big must. With classes being available 24/7 I can do all that I need to do with ease.

Overall Experience: I have attended Ashford for a couple of years now and I have no complaints at all. I had concerns about attending college online since I came from a traditional campus college setting. My concerns where quickly relieved and I couldn't be more thankful that the online programs are available. I would not have been able to complete my degree and work a full time job in the traditional setting. The only chance for me to continue my education is in this manner. My overall experience has been very positive and I would highly recommend Ashford to others.

Academic Flexibility: Mount Saint Clare – I chose Mt. Saint Clare (Ashford University) because they offered me a sports scholarship at the time. I was looking at other schools and was offered the most here. It was an average experience. Classes were moderately difficult depending on the course taken. Overall, I enjoyed my experience.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Rise and Fall – Overall the tuition and fees are not too bad, but they did rise after I enrolled into the university. I know that for me to excel it needs to be paid, so luckily financial aid, scholarships, and students loans are available.

Academic Flexibility: A Piece of Cake – I love Ashford! My credits transferred with ease, if for some reason I decided to go to another university, because Ashford is regionally accredited, all of my clasases that were taked at Ashford would transfer.

Academic Experience: The registrationprocess is wondeerful. you are assigned an acdemic advior who contacts you on a daily basis to help with financiallaid, transcripts, and orientation. Thye contine to call and checkk on you for the first course. and idf all is well thye assign you a permentadvisor who not only does your academics but financial aid. You become very close to the advisor who helps you through registration.

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.
