Campus Resources: I have not been on this college (Ashford Univ.) campus yet, so I can't say I have seen the auditorium, or gym? However, I saw pictures of the campus and it's very nice and cozy, and it also looks like students that are attending Ashford is very happy and content either on campus or online as I have converse back and forth with students in my online college course at Ashford and they all sounds very happy overall with everything.

Campus Resources: Ashford University has been overall satisfying as I see it, from office staff, campus student advisors, financial aide advisors, class instructors and fellow classmates has all been very supportive, respectful, and helpful. I don't think I'll be transferring to any schools real soon, I love here at Ashford. My graduation estimated date is: June 25, 2015. This is my very first college school I'm attending now, taking online college courses and have good grades Major-GPA:3.7/Cumulative Undergraduate grade is; 2.96. So, it shows I'm doing really well!

Academic Flexibility: Two times I have been able to take a break for two very different reasons. There was a point where it seemed that suddenly everyone was passing away around me; three relatives and two friends all within the same month. They allowed me to take some personal time to deal with the emotions that were going on during this time. Another time, I was moving and they allowed me the time off to finalize the move and enjoy a small vacation before returning to school. Returning was very smooth. They allowed me to pick right up where I left off without any hassle.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: The professors are very knowledgeable in their respective areas of study and teaching. Our professors are able to apply their real-world experiences through personal interaction in the field of work. Our professors genuinely experienced the career field in their area of study before becoming a teacher. This allows them to understand what we will go through when we enter the work force.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Students of all backgrounds, races, sexual orientations, and ages come together with one goal; to graduate. We all help each other along the way through study groups and detailed discussions.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I am an online student, this question does not apply to my situation

College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I do not have another school to compare the process to.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I received financial aid for the courses that I attended... I believe that Ashford operates just as other colleges do. I am content with the process

College Sophomore

Student Body: I am an only student and it is not clear how the campus body compares to that of online students

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have never had an issue with tuition or financial aid. I fill out the FAFSA and money goes to the school. I don't have to worry about any of it.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have never had an issue with flexibility of classes and when I can take them. All of my credits transferred to Ashford and I moved directly into class. However, I was enrolled in a class before they received my transcripts, so I paid for this class twice. Other than that, the ease of use and flexible time frame has been wonderful.

2 College Senior

Student Body: I have no idea considering that I am doing online courses.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Overall, the information is useful and abundant. Class schedules are very helpful in focusing on the material. This major is very new to me, and never thought I would end up under Entrepreneurship. I enjoy the facilities more than any other school I have attended, given online allows me to be in class any where I would like. The workload sometimes seems to be much for the condensed amount of time, yet the real world sometimes sets other unrealistic goals far worse than what school presents.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I really like my academic and Financial Adviser he is genuinely concerned with what is going on with my classes and how i'm doing. If I don't think I'm doing that well he will encourage me to do my best and then I'll succeed in getting my degree.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm a business major and my associates degree will be in Organizational management and my classes are just what I expected except and it's so nice to be able to work a full-time job and still be able to attend college without it being so overwhelming that you just can't do it.

1 College Senior

Academic Experience: This grade was received in informal logic I wish that when I was getting graded for my discussions that I didn't get points off for them because as long as I responded to my classmates and was the appropriate words that it should've been the full grade and receiving this grade cause me to almost loss my financial aid which I desperately need.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is great not to high at all, but for the financial aid office they connected me with less then a week telling me I know longer had money to finish school and I need another way to pay for it, but Thanks to my adviser who I give an A++ to she gave me other options that my financial adviser didn't.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I love it. This is way different then the in class setting but for those that have a fun time job it is really nice, because you pretty much have plenty of time to do the work for that whole week. You have really great discussions with the other students too.

4 College Senior

Student Body: I take classes online so I am not to sure about the student body for I have no idea what they look like or anything like that but I would think that have a nice diverse group.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: so far i have not had any problems. i have had all documents emailed in a timely matter and responded in a timely matter.

College Junior

Online Courses: i haven't started my classes just yet. my class officially starts in 5 days.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Great virtual learning experience so far, as I complete my 3rd class at Ashford.

4 College Junior

Student Body: A variety of students are in the virtual classrooms, including new students (fresh out of high school) and more experienced learners who are returning to school after being in the workforce for awhile.

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.
