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.

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.

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.

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!!!

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.

Overall Experience: I Am Very Happy With the Choice I Made. I am very happy with Ashford University. They respond in a timly manner to answer any questions or concerns I may have. They have a very high standard and make sure all students know and abide by these standards. I would choose this school again and Highly recommend them to my friends and family.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I Love the Flexability – I am in an online class at my school and I love the flexability they have to offer. I can work on my class assignments around my personal schedule.
And I love the support I get with any questions or concerns I may have.

4 College Student

Online Courses: I was a little skeptical at first, when I decided to take on line courses. I didn't know what to expect. My Admissions Counselor did an excellent job with making me feel comfortable. I've so far completed my first course and I did very well. I enjoy the whole set up on line. It's basically self explanatory, a person shouldn't have any problems with navigating around the classroom. I look forward to reading the responses of my peers. It's almost therapeutic.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Military Friendly – Ashford University is very military friendly. I am a milspouse, and they have discounted tuition available as an active duty spouse, as well as additional services such as free books for the entirety of the degree and no technology fees. I received the pell grant, and my advisor has been very helpful to explore all my options when it comes to continuing my degree. With all the help they have given me as a military spouse, it was a very clear choice that I wanted to continue through the end with this school.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Some Transferred Credits – I got some credit for my previous schoolwork. For instance, I think I only had to take a couple general classes and the english exam. All of the other classes I am taking are in a different major than I previously chose at another school. I think that they accepted a lot of the transfers that they could, but I wish I could have gotten more credit because I had already gone to school for more than 4 years.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: If you are working full-time as I am, and wished you could go to school full-time as well, with Ashford, you can! They provide online classes that are each 5 weeks long. One class qualifies as full-time. The work varies and a lot of help is available if you need it. I believe that they are less expensive than other schools, and if they have a partnership with your employer, you get a discount. It's a good school and I would recommend it to anyone who is willing to work hard to get a degree.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Well said, the student body is mostly working class adults wanting to futher their education and dont hav any extra time for other

4 College Junior

Student Body: Diversity MAJOR – I am an online student enrolled at Ashford University. The greatest and most exciting part of my experience at Ashford is the capability to interact with persons from all over the country, all over the world! I have met many knowledgeable people though my classes at Ashford University. The most wonderful part about the diverse group of people I interact with on a regular basis is that even though no two students are identical, we all share the common goal of success! Ashford University is setting us all up for just that! I am so excited at the start of each new class. I never know who I will encounter in the classroom, but that is what excites me! Every day is a new day, which I welcome with an open mind and an open heart!!!!

College Sophomore

Career Services: I have not completed my undergrad degree yet; therefore I have not experienced or utilyzed post grad services

Tuition & Financial Aid: Financing Your Education – Tuition at Ashford is rather expensive, but not different from any other online schools since digital materials are included as part of the tuition.The financial aid office contacts the students through email and makes you aware of any problems. The best way to obtain information about financial aid assistance is to talk with your admissions advisor and she will supply all of the necessary information.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Ashford University has an exceptional staff; particularly the student advisor. If there are any problems with courses or if one is in need of technicasl support, help is a phone call away. I was concerned about taking classes on line and worried that I would not get the campus experience. I was definitely wrong about that. I often recieve calls from the administrative class inquiring about how I am doing with my classes and If I am in need of anything. The staff is very personable and my instructors are phenominal.

3 College Student

Online Courses: Not as Social as a Actual Campus – I like doing classes online because of my busy schedual but I miss not haveing classmates and teachers to talk to.

5 College Student

Academic Flexibility: Very Flexible – They have made it to where I can do school online whenever I get free time to do my work

1 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: I am a recent graduate and have not heard of any services that would help me with job prospects. In fact, one area they could expand on is the career center before a person graduates. The only "reach out" that I have encountered is them asking if I want to sign up for graduate school right away.

1 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I was an online student and was rarely told about items going on at the school. I believe it was up to us to view their newsletter and website.

3 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process was very easy and quick. The school basically just took the money after I applied for it. I was an online student and while tuition is expensive, I did pay quite a bit for my education.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Online Resources Are Satisfactory. I have no problems with access my materials. I wish more information was available through the online library. But, I do understand there are limitations as with any online library system. I must commend them for continuing to update their system.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I enjoy the convenience of taking online classes since I am homebound. My instructors are extremely knowledgable and helpful. I have no problems with the administrative staff whatsoever. Ashford was the best decision I ever made to further my education. I have absolutely no complaints about Ashford University.

College Junior

Career Services: Not Sure Yet – I currently enjoy the job I have as a pre-k teacher and have not utilized this yet, I still have another year til graduation

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.
