5 College Student

Overall Experience: My name is Rheana Gattone, and as far as support goes, I haven't had much in my life. My family has never really been there for me. I have been on my own since about 16 years old, and I seems like one struggle after another. Well I am fixing my life and no one can stop me! Ashford has given me more support then I get from most of my friends and family. I know what I want to do with my life. I want to start my own business, and make all the products I sell myself! Since E Marketing is the artistic side of marketing, I know I have finally found my place! Not only are they the most affordable school for online classes (Which means a lot to me since I don't have much in this world). They also have the most support (I feel like for the first time in my life I have people who care about my success!). I am the most unique, creative and artistic person I know, and I plan on turning this chance in my golden ticket to being happy with my professional decisions. I play guitar (I taught myself), I make jewelry (unlike anything anyone has ever seen, so beautiful, yet unique) and I also am into clothing design amongst many other things! I have made my choice, and I know in my heart that it is truly the right one. I WILL Graduate school! I WILL follow my dreams! I have Ashford University to thank for it, along with my strong will and my brilliance! Thank you for your time and you interest in my opinion.

Career Services: I have had no opportunity nor need to use the career services at Ashford University

Campus Resources: I cannot comment on the campus resources. As an online student I have never been to the campus of Ashford University; I live in another part of the country.

Online Courses: Doesn't Get Better Than This! Consider the student who needs, for a myriad of reasons, to attend a secondary educational institution while taking into account a full time job, family, deployment, mobility challenges, etc. Ashford Univ online courses not only help the student to work around these boundaries but offers a unique opportunity to focus on just one course at a time, instead of the usual 2 or 3 or 4 courses happening at the same time each semester. It is a brilliant approach, offering the student the opportunity to focus on the course subject, and all research is about that subject, and all class discussions are focused, for five weeks. The structure of each class is the same as the next class; Assignments are always due on the same days, quizzes are also due on the same day. Perhaps the only caveat is if the student is not much of a reader or a writer they may find themselves working hard to get through each five week course, but eventually everyone gets the hang of it. I cannot say enough good about this online college experience.

Overall Experience: Pleasant and Rewarding – I love my classes, and the instructors do an excellent job of providing materials needed to make the class informative and interesting. I have learned so much over the last year. Would highly recommend Ashford, and in fact, I have a couple friends who have started at Ashford based on my recommendations.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Great Contacting School – Each different director or administrator has contacted me once through email or phone to introduce themselves. that is important in an online school.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Post Graduate Services – The services seem to be fine, I cannot speak on them directly because I have not experienced them nor have I looked into them. the only program I have explored is the Graduate program because my intent is to stay with Ashford for my business administration Masters program upon completion of my BA.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Online Resources and Library – the library that ashford gives access to is an invaluable tool. It is also one of the most comprehensive collections of research information i hav come accross. I have attended 6 higher learning institutions and this one is at the top of the list for resources within my expreience.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have been very happy with the assistance I have been provided. There are specific military aid programs as well as traditional which help out a lot with my situation. I am fully confident that they will address any issue that i may run accross in the future if any. They are very good at anticipating all of my needs so i dont believe that I will run across anything they have not already thought of.

Online Courses: Online Interaction – Online courses promote much more interaction among classmates and the instructor. Online instructors are much more accessible.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Course Length – Ashford offers an accelerated course length. This allows me to concentrate on one course at a time and still complete 3-4 courses within a traditional semester. I find this preferable to juggling 3-4 diverse subjects simultaneously.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: the program is very flexible as far as your own schedule and the curriculum they set up for you applies to outside of the school walls to is revelent information that they are teaching. also the curriculum is intersesting.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Va/Gi Bill – well so far i have mot encountered too many hassles. i have 100 percent tuition covered and my financial aid packet has to be updated and it is lots of paperwork but other than that as a veteran and as a person they have treated way better than most

Online Courses: I find attending an online class fits my life style. I am able to work full-time, be a full-time single mother of three, and achieve my educational goals. I miss having the classroom interaction, but make the most by being active during online discussions. Professors and teacher assistants respond quickly to questions, comments or concerns. It is a good experience for me.

2 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Recent Tuition Increase – After enrollment, I experienced an increase in tuition. I do not feel the current rate of tuition matches the level of education delivered.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: My Online University – I never knew how amazing an online campus could be. It is so incredable to be virtualy connected to all these differant enviornments and people. We can chat, study, share and give advice all over the united states at the simple click of a button. Me and my peers can go to the library, to class, to another country, to a chat room, enjoy a movie, a concert, a speaker, whatever we desire whenever we desire. Cool as it sounds I'm happy to have joined this online community. I feel my educational experience will be equaiiy amazing. My dreams of being a mom and a student are finally my reality Thanks to Ashford University's online campus. No gas needed, no parking worries, never late to class, a real shot at success. my overall experience so far has been incrediable. Carli Kittle

I am a single mother of five children, twins born with a terminal disease known as Cystic fibrosis, they are 13 now and doing ok, but they require a lot of daily care to stay alive. When the twins were born so sick i had to quit school and make them my life. This is where Ashford University has opened up A world of oppertunity for a woman like me. MY dream is to work towards my goals while continuing to nurse the health of my children. Everyone wins with Ashford online University.I can now make my dreams come true with my virtual online classroom. I love the way my classes are designed perfectly for a woman like me. It was so easy to apply and now here i am finally back to what i always knew i wanted to do. THe ability to do this while still being a mother is like a dream come true.

Student Body: I appreciate the fact that I am within a diverse student body culture. This gives me opportunities to learn from different perspectives as well as learn about their backgrounds so that I can utilize my learnings to my patients with in the health care field.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Health Care Administration – In reference to the program at Ashford University, I appreciate the fact that it is one of the most flexible time schedules to assist me with continuing my education. I do find that the workload is moderate but feel that some of the classes are not personal, such as a couple of incidents where the instructors were not enthusiastic of teaching the classes; I call these types of teachers a "copy and paste" type of person. I do enjoy the curriculum, however, I have learned multiple important aspects that I will utilize in the real world and work situations.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: No Social Scene – My classes are online, and I wish I could actually attend a school. But I have no time. This school has been very helpful to this old lady!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Ashford is great! Especially the guidance and financial aid staff. I am very happy with the flexibility of the teachers as well

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Online Courses Offered – The only thing I can think of that sets Ashford University apart from some other universities is that Ashford offers online courses and some colleges do not.

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.
