5 College Junior

Online Courses: This was the best choice I could have made for myself and family. With my circumstances, I was limited as to what I could do. I take care of my sick mother and have a four year old. Being able to do school online could not be better for me. I choose when I want to to be in school and it is easy to communicate with the other students. The teachers are always willing to help with anything. The advisors are very helpful as well.

Campus Resources: Treat With Respect – The staff at Ashford University are very hands on. If you have a problem or question, they get back to you right away. They treat me very well and don't treay me as just another person.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: My Online Course – Well to describe the difference is you get to talk more in the class room and you can as the teacher face to face on a subject that you do no know about.On line you get to type everything that you do thats the good thing about that.Online they grade you different to from the regular class.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My School Time Spent – Well for my classes the first one was one little bit surprising but I got the hang of it.The next class is great I remember a lot of different things from the first class.I didn't have a problem with tranferring the credits at all.

5 College Student

Campus Resources: The reason Ashford University in so unique to me it because the support. These are real people who truly care. They call you daily to make sure you understand everything and even just to check up on how you are! I truly love my team and I wouldn't pick another one if you paid me a million dollars. Thank you Ashford, you have given me hope, in times when I thought hope was a fairy tail. God I love this school!

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.

College Junior

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

College Junior

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.

5 College Junior

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.
