3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Classes Are Interesting – I'm a business major, and my classes are exactly what I expected so far. My career field is also in Business so I find it rewarding and interesting that I can incorperate my job and school together.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at Ashford University is bitter sweet. Bitter because it was hard to keep up with my advisers, whether it is my financial advisor or academic. This cause my graduation date to be pushed back. However, the sweet part about Ashford is that I received a military discount and felt I was actually learning in my classes. All in all I guess I had a rocky start, but things seem to be making a turn for the better.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I Love My University – I am enrolled in Ashford's online program. They are a brick and mortar college in Iowa. I love the programs as they are 5 weeks each, one at a time. Most of the text books are online-much less money to shell out and very covenient as I can download to my ereader. I love the Professors and the curriculum.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Academic Flexibility – My experience getting enroll with this school was so amazing. They have things in place to help students to get started with ease. The counselors have been awesome helping you meet your goals via email or on the telephone. The classroom setting and ease of use is amazing. I was new and right now only a few weeks in I am comfortable. This is awesome!

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: They were the only online school I found that had a way to allow students to enroll who would have problems getting their transcript from other schools due to a balance owed. They offer the perfect solution for this problem and even had a way for you to get your first book on them until your financial aid kicked in. This definitely sets them apart from a lot of schools.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since I found this school everything has been wonderful for me. They answered all my question academically and financially. They were the only school they had a solution to all my problems that I had experienced over the summer trying to get admitted at other schools. I feel Blessed to have been accepted at this school,
Ashford University.

1 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They are money hungry and I am trying to get my transcripts so that I can go to another school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Total Flexibility. I am currently taking all of my college courses online with Ashford University. There are no scheduled times that I have to be at my classes, and teachers are usually pretty flexible about working with you on turning assignments in. At one point in my life, I was working two part-time jobs, so this flexibility was very much appreciated. Ashford also works with students, and deffers loan payments until 6 months after graduation when the students can get a proper job to pay off that loan. This was also a big relief to me. I love this school and how flexible they are with their students.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Alumni Network – Post-grads become the alumni network. The faculty stays intouch with the grads and help them with anything they may need!

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I love the convience it gives me, Working and finishing my degree and most of all the time I can be a parent due to the college flexibility in class scheduling. I mostly like the online option of attending school especially for the busy parents and single parents wanting to continue their education.

4 College Senior

Career Services: I have not received Ashford's career services yet, but am sure that when I do, I feel my needs will be satisfied as well as I am being treated now as a student.

4 College Senior

Student Body: I attend Ashford Online and do not attend personally. I have found that student affairs are very helpful when it comes to immediate need. I had some difficulties due to unexpected circumstances which had cause me to fall behind in my course. Ashford University has exceptional help when it comes to need. I am fortunate to have received such excellent service.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My Financial Aid advisor at Ashford University has been very helpful when it comes to getting the all of the correct financial aid needed. I am also borrowing loans to cover the tuition and school supply needs. I believe that my financial aid advisor has been honest and sincere about my financial needs. The best tip for getting financial aid is filling out the FAFSA before the deadline. I wish that I was able to find scholarships to pay for my entire tuition at school because I am a single parent of a teenager and a child.

3 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: Military Personnell – Most of my classmates were in the military and were looking to change their career when they get out of the military. I just happen to be the oldest one in each of my classes

2 Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: Most of the coursed overlapped with each other. It was challenging at first and then after a couple of years, the courses began to overlap with each other.

1 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid was good for the first 2 years, but after that, it wasn't all that good. I had to file a complaint because the financial aid advisor I had wasn't giving me correct information and I felt that she didn't do a good job. I had to go over her head to get results.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Being as I am an online student I have no "real" interaction with the student body per say. Those students that I do communicate with through classroom boards are involved with their own busy lives.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: The workload is pretty tight, as work is due on a weekly basis. But that in fact keeps me focused and on track.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: In choosing Ashford I really liked to whole online experience as opposed to the hassle of a traditional college campus. My overall experience as been a good one with all of the people at school. In general they have been most helpful and accommodated in every situation that has come up.

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.
