5 College Freshman

Student Body: In my online courses I have met people from all over the country. Our teachers seem to welcome that with open arms and it has proven to be an excellent way to learn about other lifestyles.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Computer Resources – Every now and then the online classroom will be down for maintenence but only at times when the majority of people sleep. As the classes I take are entirely online, having my own computer is essential which was made very clear prior to me starting classes.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experience thus far at Ashfor University has been wonderful. I love all the instructors; their advise, wisdom, and perspectives. The online classes are manageable to fit my schedule and I absolutely love the learning experience. Everyone from finacial aid, to academic affairs are very helpful and thorough. I am very pleased with my journey so far.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Ashford University itself is a nice school. I really enjoy the Online Classroom environment. When I wanted a double major, all I had to do was call up my Academic Adviser, and we set up a double major! It was really easy!

Only drawback is that the University does not offer scholarships.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This college is acceptable. The University does not have scholarships. The people are helpful, however, overall, with the lack of scholarships, you have to get financial aid.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors really know what they are teaching and do not need to have their book right in front of them. One bad thing is that some of the professors are not here everyday of the week(part-time professors).

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Best Time of My Liife – One of the main reasons that I choose this school was because it was close to where I work and they really help get my classes around my work schedule. All my credits have transferred from other schools I have taken during the summer of my senior year of high school.

3 College Junior

Student Body: I personally do not get to meet any body but, I talk online to people. The people I meet online rang any were from 18 years old to 55 years old, male or female,they come from all over the U.S. One thing they have in common is they are very nice and polite.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I enjoy going to Ashford University. I have been there almost a year. Their online college experience involves writing a lot of papers. In my current course, this week, I had to write two papers. My current course is Communications/200. I do not know about the social scenes, facilities or campus life because I am enrolled in Ashford University Online.

Campus Resources: Totally Over the Top – Every available resource is included in your degree pursuits

Academic Flexibility: Academic Flexibility – Academic Flexibility
I am a full time student at Ashford University. The best part about attending Ashford is the flexibility they offer in each course. My last college experience was difficult to handle. At this point in my life I am able to juggle being a full time student, a husband, and a father. I get to make my own schedule and that flexibility gives me the opportunity to spend time with my growing daughter and loving wife. I save time because I don't have to drive to school every day. I save money on the gas. There has been a tremendous amount of weight lifted off my shoulders, because my school makes life easier for me, not harder. This makes me take great pride in my school. This school is a blessing because they are helping me reach my academic goal, and that is earning my degree.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Taking Chances – People will have there academic opinions, I was one of them. Online College is something that people view as a waste of time. One might think that we have to sit in a classroom to learn anything, and I say that is a myth. After I enrolled in AU, I learned that these roomers were wrong.

I am glad I took the chance, because I have learned even more than I would in the traditional classroom setting. Online college has given me a different perspective. I use critical thinking, and that means I constantly question my own thinking and not assume that I am right. Again, what a big chance I took at finalizing my choice in College.

When I made the decision to enroll at AU I figured I was taking a big chance. However, we have to take chances every day. When we walk out our door. When we choose a college. When we go to work. Why not?

Now that I am learning the tools I need to get a better career and better my future, Ashford is to thank. I am glad I made that choice. I would take the same chance over again if I had to.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a new student to Ashford University Online. I feel like it's a pretty good course breezing right threw but by the 2nd week I'm board :( and I am not getting any where with my financial aide peeps no one is good with communication except my admissions person but even now she isn't much. I hear a lot of I'm sorry I can't help you rather then yes i can and here is how i can help you

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Your Chance of Getting a Return Call in a Timely Manner – My financial aid advisor must be a very busy person. Her machine indicates a time-frame for a return call, but I have never received one in that given time frame. Often I will call again and remind them that I am waiting for a return call.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Student Library – It is hard to find the topic you need on the online libraries.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: I Attend Online – I do not have much interaction with the other students because I attend online.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: One Class at a Time – I am happy that I am able to take one class at time, with my busy life I don't think I could take three classes and do well in them all right now.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Ashford Online offers one course at a time,that is something I was looking for in a college. It really helps with being able to focus on one subject at a time. I have a very busy life, with three kids, 2 dogs and four cats to care for!

5 College Junior

Student Body: Ashford has a diverse student body. The students come from all walks of life and from different places around the world. Because of this, Ashford offers and opportunity to interact with people you don't normally get to interact with in your life. It has been a wonderful experience.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: Online Classes – Surprisingly I find I get the same knowledge and understanding as I did when I attended traditional class rooms. In addition, most assignments require writing an paper. This enables me to not merely memorize dates, subjects, definitions, etc. for a test, but allows me to delve deeper into subject matter and completely understand the subject matter on a higher academic level.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Getting my Masters in Education is fulfilling. Many students are teachers so they help with perspective. Most instructors are very understanding of academic requirements to be a good teacher. The workload is significant and helps me to comprehend and prepare to master the realm of education in today's world.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Academic Flexability – Because I am only able to take online courses with Ashford University, their flexibility with me has been superb. I can work a full time job and then come home to finish homework and read with no problem. I only have to take one class at a time and this allows me to concentrate on one specific subject.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Academic Experience – The academic experience here at Ashford University, even while taking online classes, is still a great one. The teachers are very friendly and allow each student to show their work in different ways and to really express their opinions.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: Inside Scoop – I love Ashford Univeristy because it allows me to take one class at a time, while still allowing me to get my BA in just four years. I appreciate mostly the administration there, they are always so friendly and they really care about how I am going to make it to my dreams.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Doing the Right Thing – I was kinda worred when I started online course because I did not know if I was going to have time to make sure I take care of my daughter. But now I see that I can mange my time around her and do what is needed of me to do in my school work.

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.
