4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Returning Student – I have so far enjoyed this school becasue everything has been easy to get to and I have had every answer answered quickly. We the previous school I was at this was always an issue.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: They're not impossible, but they require a lot of hard work. It's a lot of reading and writing, but its' do-able as long as you manage your time, and don't slack off. The instructors are very helpful, and answer to posts in a timely manner. The material requires you to expand your thoughts on the subject. I am looking at the world differently after every class.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Happy Student – I'm a military spouse who had to put my educational career on hold while taking care of my first child alone. I tried getting into nursing at San Diego Community College, but things weren't working out. There was a lot of waiting, andn ot getting the classes I needed due to budget cuts. I called asHford University and wasin my first class a week later. I haven't had any trouble, and I will hopefully graduate with my Bachelor's Degree in a few months!!

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Great School – I have been very satisfied with my education at Ashford. Sometimes in the harder courses, the 5 week class intervals seem a little rushed, but I am still able to learn something in the class. Now that I am in my major courses, I have been keeping my text books for further study. The workload in the Public Administration classes is tough at times, but they are fisable. I do wish that the final paper length wasn't as long. As a full time student and full time employee at times writing an 8 page paper is a bit overwhelming.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Super Flexible Scheduling – My classes so far have been super flexible and conveient. Ashford is great at meeting the needs of adult learners returning to school.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: GREAT Financial Advisors! I have not had any real issues with my financial aid. Everything has gone pretty smooth, which was something I was initially stressed about when I was considering returning to school. But the financial advisor is great and he helps me with any question that I do have.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Online Classes – I do not actually take any classes on campus, I do all of mine online. But the online classes are awesome! Very hands on and interactive from other students and our professor! I would recommend Ashford University to anybody thinking about taking college online.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Academic Flexibility – The classes are fine, it really depends on the teacher. I am an older student and have never understood the financial aspects at all, and have never received much help understanding them.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Left Wondering – I am very excited to be back in school after a short hiatus. The forms were fairly easy to fill out but I am left wondering about a few things. I find it hard to reach my financial adviser and even harder to get a straight answer out of here.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The Flexibility of My Classes – I really enjoy the flexibility of my classes because every day is different for me with my homelife and work schedule. There was quite a bit of hassel from my previous college to get my transcripts because it had been so many years ago, but Ashford University helped me alot.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: This is my second class..I have no "say so" in what my curriculum is, this I do not care for. I am paying a lot of money to be told what class I am taking when. I do understand the possibility this may be for my greater good, but am not happy with I have no choice. I would like to be taking a course or two regarding my major, not just satisfying the last of my General Education. The flexibility, Excellent!! I go to school online and am able to attend class and do my assignments while working. Ashford transferred most of my past college credits, I am above thankful for this.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Though I think this school is very expensive, I am able to attended and work a full time job. I do have a wonderful counselor she is usually available and helps me with my "needs". If it weren't for here I would not be able to do this program. This is only my first "real" class, the introductory class was fun and enjoyable. i am paying approximately 1.800 dollars per class, I know I have been out of school for quite3 some time, I feel this amount is high. The classes move along very quickly not sure how much retention there is. I have been told that all units I achieve here are transferable. I will be contacting Sac State to confirm. Sincerely, Cory "Strite

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Recommendation to Future Students – The staff at Ashford University is very nice, the financial aid department was very efficient and straightforward, the courses so far meet my standards, tuition is moderate not too much compared to other graduate schools

5 College Senior

Student Body: At Ashford University, there are students of all walks of life. There are students of every age, race, religion, sexual orientation, political and econimic backgrounds. I love this best of all.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: At Ashford University, one of the greatest things about the online curriculum is the discussion boards. We are required not only to post our own opinions and or assignments, but also to comment on others. This is a great way to get several different perspectives on the topics at hand. This enables the student to see the information from many sides. I have experienced times when I did not understand the professor as well as I did another student.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: ONLINE LEARNING – I AM AN ONLINE STUDENT AT ASHFORD AND THERE IS A WEALTH OF RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO ME AT MY FINGERTIPS! IT'S WONDERFUL! I HAVE 24 HOUR ACCESS TO THE LIBRARY, STUDENT RELATIONS, TECH SUPPORT, MY COURSE WORK, HELPFUL WEBSITES AND OTHER NECESSARY RESOURCES.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: GREAT COURSES – I THOROUGHLY ENJOY LEARNING AGAIN! THE COURSES ARE SET UP SO THAT YOU CAN SOLELY FOCUS AT ON THE COURSE AT HAND. THE INSTRUCTORS ARE GREAT; VERY ATTENTIVE, IF THERE IS A CONCERN THEY ARE QUICK TO LEND A HAND. I AM LEARNING MORE HERE AT ASHFORD THEN I DID AT ANY OF THE OTHER HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS IN WHICH I WAS ENROLLED.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: FLEXABILITY, CONVENIENCE, EXCELLENCE – I THOROUGHLY ENJOY ATTENDING ASHFORD UNIVERSITY. I LOVE HOW WELCOMING THE ADMINISTRATION WAS AND HOW WILLING TO HELP THE INSTRUCTORS ARE. THIS IS A TOP NOTCH UNIVERSITY AND I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT ANYONE WHO IS LOOKING TO START OR CONTINUE THEIR EDUCATION, START AT ASHFORD. I PREVIOUSLY ATTENDED A TECHNICAL COLLEGE WHERE I EARNED MY AA IN BUSINESS MANAGEMENT AND THE PROCESS WAS NO WHERE NEAR AS SIMPLIFIED AS AT ASHFORD. I WAS INTERESTED IN FURTHERING MY EDUCATION SO I ENROLLED AT ANOTHER ONLINE COLLEGE, WHEREAS AFTER THE FIRST QUARTER I WITHDREW; IT WAS TOO COMPLEX AND ALL OVER THE PLACE, I DIDN'T FEEL I WAS GAINING ANYTHING. AT ASHFORD THE COURSES ARE SET UP SO THAT YOU COMPLETELY FOCUS ON THE COURSE AT HAND; EACH COURSE IS A FIVE WEEK COURSE. I AM SO HAPPY I CHOSE ASHFORD UNIVERSITY; AS AFTER COMPLETING MY BACHELORS, I WILL BE GOING FORWARD WITH MY MASTERS!

Campus Resources: Fits My Lifestyle – I am glad that I chose Ashford Univeristy because with me being disabled and going to the doctors alot I can still keep up with my class work by attending online classes this way I do not fall behind or miss any of my classes or assignments

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Happy With Choice – Everything has gone very smooth so far. Everyone I talk to is extremely helpful, and if they do not know the answer they will find it for you. They work with the military, which is a must in my house. I can take all my classes online and each class only lasts five weeks.

4 College Junior

Student Body: As an online student, we introduce ourselves giving a general bio. I have met online classmates from different areas, backgrounds and status. It's pretty neat because there's someone most likely that you can relate to and the online atmosphere is always respectful even in debates.

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.
