2 College Sophomore

Online Courses: due dates for assignments were odd dates to me. some due dates were so close together that it made it hard to complete both.

Student Body: I believe that most of the students could do better if the teachers pushed more and interacted more. Most just let the students get by with the lest they need to do

Tuition & Financial Aid: I am not offered any help with my studies and the do not off any tuitions or aid to help with finances

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The Ashford writing center is a great resource and got me on track with APA format. It also provides great ways to form a paper to be successful. When writing research papers or just do gain some knowledge, I go to the Ashford library. There is easy to use search engines to find credible scholarly resources.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: A lot of the students in my classes are returning back to school, so we have the same feelings about taking on old subjects. I have come to find that students at Ashford have came back to school determined to better themselves. That is the reason why I came back, and it is soothing to know that we are all willing to work through the same problems. This type of attitude motivates me because everyone wants to be there.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Class registration was easy and the workload is compressed online but it is worth getting done in five weeks. Every time I have asked for help, I can count on the professors to get back to me as fast as possible. However, i do wish that there was a required group discussion on skype because that is what is missing from an online class.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I recommend Ashford for anyone that has a busy schedule and wants to start school again. i am just taking general courses until I transfer to a brick and mortar college. The system works and eases you back into the learning environment. It really built my confidence to apply at Ohio State University. I can only speak for the online classes, but the downside is you have to figure out everything yourself with minimal peer interaction.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Ashford got me off to a great start and was very convenient to my lifestyle. This helped me get rid of the butterflies of starting school again. I have learned to trust the system that Ashford provides because it has been so successful with me. The courses are five weeks long, and compressed but it is worth the credits in the end.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I would like to see the teachers more involved. Some teahers are really in touch with their students making it feel as a student your alone in the teaching/learning process.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: An education is priceless in my thoughts, but when it comes to having to pay those loans back I would have to say I am paying more than I want to. Ashford is a little more expensive then some online college programs, but a lot less than others. Financial aid is knowledgeable but will call you daily over and over if they need or want something. It isn't the same person either so they won't know that someone else called you earlier that day. It makes it very frustrating. As long as they don't need anything from you then you wont even know this dept exists!!

3 College Senior

Online Courses: It is a little tough to not get discouraged. Written assignments can be challenging. I would like more options as to see physically a paper example or setup as to make sure students are heading in the right direction. The new writing center seems to give students a chance to do better, and I look forward to using that next week. I love being able to study from home focus on my family and school at the same time. Most professors are great, but a few I wish I never had to have. Overall not a bad school, but not the best either!

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: My time at Ashford University was a true learning experience being that I really haven't been in that environment probably since the days in the oil field but not to that extent. It help clean the cob-webs out of my head and opened it up to receive a lot of information.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: As a student you choose when to do your assignments within the deadlines that was given, which was great for me.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: From what I have experienced everything that I needed during my Bachelor Degree was there where I had access to it

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Gives me the opportunity to focus on my health conditions because I am disabled. I have good days and even worse day; so when I am having to isolate myself until I can overcome the current issues. My pains come and go with me not knowing when they are going to flare up. So I am limited sometimes being able to get out of the house. This school has been there through my Bachlor.

3 College Senior

Student Body: I gave the grade a B for the student body at Ashford University because I have not met any of the student body. I would like to meet some of them. All I do is make good grades and work hard until graduating.I am sure they are working people like myself. Going to school at Ashford is not for socializing, it is about learning and getting good grades. The most important part is graduation with all A's!

4 College Senior

Career Services: Post-grad services at Ashford are available through the student portal for each student. Any kind of service that you need, insrtuctions are explained and posted where to find them.They have informamtion on their career center and alumni network. Sometimes information is given for writing better resumes and job posting. I am looking forward to graduation day here at Ashford. I hope after graduation, it will not be hard to land a job after attending this school.Looking at jobs that are being posted on the internet ( For ex. snag-a-job) and my local newspaper, there are plenty of jobs in my field of study. I hope the jobs will be plentiful after I graduate, because the health and medical field will always have dedicated and qualified people to fill positions needed.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I enjoy my online courses, but they are quite different from the old traditional classroom experience. Every fifth week the classes change. I really learn a lot from my online classes. The work load is minuminum and is not hard. Everything is explained clearly and the instructors are prompt and clearly explains the direction for each week. The registration process was easy and the staff at Ashford was very helpful before enrolling. This is a great school to earn a degree of your choice. My admission advisor checks in on me from time to time to see how I am doing and how I have progressed since enrolling. She always advise me to contact her if any problems occur and if I need help in any way.I think there health programs are great. I would advise anyone to attend Ashford University.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I love my online courses. I feel a lot more confident than in a traditional class.

5 College Junior

Student Body: I have found Ashford to be very diverse the students range from young to mature. Because of flexibility there is every kind of student.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The school has been exactly what I wanted. If it's my needs and my flexibility.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I love doing online classes. I work 40 or more hours a week so with online classes I can work on my homework in the evenings and on the weekend's when I am off. Most professors will give fast and helpful feedback in a timely manner and try to explain things when asked.

College Senior

Student Body: I am not at a physical university. I do online classes.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am an online student so some of the areas do not apply. I can say that Ashford online classes are well thought out and most teachers will return answers before their limit of 48 hours. As in any school it depends on the teacher. It is very fast paced as a course is only five weeks.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Staff at Ashford are very helpful with their helping a student apply for financial aid. It is not that Ashford is higher with their tuition for the online schooling, but that all of the schools are. It is a balance of a person's goals and if they can afford the loans while doing so.

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.
