4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: My experience with Ashford University has been very pleasant with registration, financial aid and academically. I'm taking online classes and have transitioned smoothly. The dilemma is... I'm a Virginia resident but my school tuition is twice the cost, it's based in CA. I don't qualify for VA funding being that I do not attend a VA school. Also, unfortunately I got laid off due to a workforce reduction and I'm a single mother of two. This past June I had the opportunity to self publish my poetry book although I haven't had the funds to market it. As I optimistically struggle to provide and survive I know that education is vital for a stable and properous life....And I strive to get there.

Campus Resources: All the main areas of interest can be found easily. There is resourse or information area at almost every door so that any questions can be answered.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Just What I've Been Waiting for – I am a special elementary education major and I have been taking my general courses first. All the classes I will begin to take next semester will be education classes to get me started on my degree.

4 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Value of Education – Financial aid here is wonderful, although I didn't get a full scholarship, I am willing to pay it to get my education at the school I am at. Filling out the paper is a little tedious but well worth it.

3 College Freshman

Career Services: Careers Wise – They are very handy when it comes to helping with your profession. they help you focus on your field of duty and help you go out there to find a job in your career goal and field. They help you build up in life so it could be much easier for one to go out into the world and be professional.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: The studen body diversity is full of variesties here in school. Etchnicity for example; there's diferent races and yet we all get treated the same with the same caring and understanding of our needs. It is acceptable to all human kind and there's is never any racial staments or discrimination or put downs. we are al equal and just as important.

Academic Experience: The academics offered at Ashord University are excellent. They have the top professors that are caring of each of their students. Here at Ashford i can count on all the help i need to move on in life. They have the top programs here at Ashford and just about any program. And whats's best is that they help me evry step of the way in my goals.

Online Courses: Online Vs. in Classrooom – My experience is fun and knowledgable. I prefer oonline classes vs in classroom due to the fact that my eyes get tired really fast, and this way I can take breaks when I need to. The registration process was very good. The workload, at this time, is very reasonable. I actually spend about 2-3 hours a day working in my class and on lessons. I think it is fun to learn on line as so many people attend regular college that some classrooms are over crowded sometimes. I prefer the one on one with my computer as it is better, and I can do research if I need to at the same time I am doing the lesson, and not have to wait till class is over and go to the library.

College Student

Overall Experience: First Day – So far in this class I feel very comfortable. What makes my school unique is the fact that I can do it online and not have to drive somewhere and sit in a classroom which I would have problems doing because of the way I feel most of the time.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: I have jsut started at this school and everyone has been extremely helpful and are all very nice to talk with

College Junior

Online Courses: Online Only School – This school is online only so I have nothing to compare it to for traditional classroom experience.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Be Ready for Papers! The one thing I have enjoyed most about this school is the fact that classes are only 5 weeks long. To me, this help keep me for burning out on one subject. The downfall is that we write a lot of papers! Every class will have have a 8-10 page final paper and most classes have you write an additional 1-3 papers that range from 2-3 or 5-6 pages. Most classes I enjoy but do not expect much from the administration side. I have gone through maybe 10 financial and academic advisors in nearly 2 years. With this turnover rate it is very hard to get someone who will take the time out to listen to you and actually help you.

2 College Student

Career Services: Again I am new to the school so, I don't know how well this is.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: I am enrolled in the online program, so there is minimal diversity known. Everyone is very supportive in the online classroom, and we all work together in our discussions.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I have been enrolled in Ashford since January 2011. The flexibility of attaining my degree online is what influenced my decision to attend an online university rather than a traditional school. My experience has been okay; I say this because of the difficulties I had when I was ill during the fall. The communication between my advisors was poor to say the least. However, other than that one experience, Ashford has more than surpassed my expectations.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: My experience with online course was challenging. The support of faculty and staff keeps one encouraged. It differs because it is accessible 24/7, flexible and lives interaction via a discussion form. I do not miss taking a lot of notes. You are many amongst many. I like the format of posting, interaction with your instructor and peers from all over the USA they are the best. Grades readily available weekly, workload is structure, registration walk through with a counselor. The professor/student relationship is awesome it like sitting right in front of your teacher. What I like best about the professor relationship is the instructor resume you get to see how knowledgeable they are about your subject.

4 College Junior

Student Body: The student body includes people from all walks of life and all stages of life as well.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Strictly Business – I am a business major, and class are relative to business and everyday living. The notable qualities of this program is that the information is current and familiar. The workload is adjustable to ones living. The curriculum is detailed and accessible when needed.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I would like more leeway in my general education classes, I would like to be able to tailor them more towards my major.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition may seem high, the superior quality of educational learning is worth every penny. The financial aid process is rated an A+ in my book. You have to experience it for yourself.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: It was a great reintroduction into the classroom enviornment after a ten year break.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience with Ashford has been excellant! My advisor, Jennifor Fore, has been a constant supplier of you go girls, assistance and support. Even when I found out I didn't qualify for the pell grantm she supplied me with an over abundance of other options of schloarships options and funding resources.

My experience with Ashford has exceeded my expectations! The class room is fun. The teaching staff is very helpful. If you are on the fence about contiuning your education, just do it! You won't regret it!

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Online Network – All my class work and classes are online. There has been a few problems accessing class material such as the textbook, and even the classroom online, but I found ways to overcome such important obstacles, and I did proceed according to my expectation to a great degree with the help of 24 hours tech support service offered by the school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Unique School Experience – Ashford University is a school that offer one class per month online, which can range to about 12 credit hours per four month period at 3 credit hours per class. I found that unique because I use to take 3 and 4 different classes or more at the same time per week on a three (3) to 4 month basis.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Flexibility of Classes – I have online classes at Ashford University, so it is reasonbly flexible to enter the classroom three to four times a week at the hours of my approval. Furthermore I had no problem transferring credits to Ashford from another school that was along the lines of my intended major that was a C or better.

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.
