4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The advisor that I have really works with me to make sure that I am advancing and accomplishing my goals. Everytime I get to a road block he always find a way to comfort me and keep me focusing on graduating and going to the next level of my education.

Career Services: Wow! I Do Not Know. Although I have not graduated yet; I do not think that Ashford University will have a high quality of post-grad services. Because I attend school online I am unfamiliar with the school's career center, alumni network, and job services. I am not sure if they even have this type of benefit in place for us students. I will be sure to bring this question up to my academic advisor thus; I think that every college should have a career center available for its undergraduate's because in all realty students attend college in order to pursue a career.

2 College Senior

Campus Resources: I Attend School Online – I attend school online therefore all the computer labs classes are conducted on my home computer, and printing is done on my personal copier. The network reliability and speed of my computer is efficient enough to handle my online classroom material. Wireless access does not pose as a problem for me. In order words as long as I pay the internet bill, and keep my computer and printer/copier functioning properly the campus resources are great. I think that online colleges charge to much for tuition. (We) Students are being drastically over charged.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I decided to go to Ashford University because it is an accredited online college. I adore the suppleness that this school offers. Going to school online has been very beneficial; I am earning a degree, working full time and I still have time to relax. The thing that I do not like about this school is the cost of tuition. I believe that online college should not be as expensive as attending an actual college because in all realty the only thing that the students are using is their own computer and a few well developed websites. Everything is done on a computer thus; if you think about it (we) students are actually teaching ourselves . I think that online tuition greatly needs to be decreased and refunded.

Online Courses: At Ashford University Online, you have the freedom to study its course materials within your schedule. Their time frame for course work to be turned in is very reasonable. In the traditional classroom the requirements of attendence can be difficult if you are working, you might not be able to get a class unless you reschedule your work hours. Not so when attending Ashford University Online. You may enter your student portal and attend class anytime 24/7 and submit your work. The lack of having to be in the traditional classroom is also economical as you do not have to pay for any kind of transportation. The peer-to-peer interactions are different than traditional classrooms because you write them in the discussion post. This is an asset, as you can clearly reflect on the discussion by reviewing the written words, verses the traditional classroom where you hope you have written your notes and accurately remember what was said.

Academic Flexibility: Ashford University online provides an excellent system and staff for furthering education and completion of degrees. Problems that can arise, such as technical support problems are minor and are not used against the student. All staff and faculty have been professional in every aspect. The quality of education is excellent. It is well worth the price. The flexibility of being able to set your own schedule within require timelines enables working and non-working adults to achieve academic progress easily. Academic support from instructors and teachers assistants are prompt and excellent. Ashford Univerity Online is an excellent choice and well worth the money.

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.

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.
