5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I love this school. I am in the Entrepreneurship program and all my classes are focused on starting a small business. It is very pleasant to be able to tie what I am learning into the real world.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I received my Bachelors in Service Management with a specialization in Restaurant Enterprise Management and Hospitality Management. All classes were geared specifically to my related field, provided timely and accurate information to the current trends within the fields and provided my with an knowledge base that is sure to land me an exciting career in the Hospitality Industry in the near future.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: All the academics are up to date and infomative. The professors are there to help you but they also depend on you to be self sufficient. It is just like a job, you must prove yourself. The curriculum is standard and is current to what is going on in present day. I like the labs and the math classes. It is very high tech and up to speed with our computers and technology. Technology is key because it helps us relate to our work environment. Class registration is easy. Your advisor guides you through the whole process. Not a missed moment. I am deaf and they provide student health services for the deaf and hard of hearing.

Campus Resources: I do on line school with Ashford University and I love it. Sometimes it's impossible to get my student advisor to respond for a couple days and by then it's t

Tuition & Financial Aid: Can be difficult to reach at times, but is rather fast in processing paperwork, etc..

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: As a business administration all of my classes are tailored and relevant to achieving my degree. As a bonus, Ashford University allowed me to transfer military training to get rid of those pesky electives.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am a criminal justice major and my classes are just like they are suppose to be, teaching about being a good police officer. I havn't been involved with much except for the classes in my school due to the military. However, I do try and make time everyday to read, study and work on my school work. The workload is pretty intensive even though I am taking only a few classes at a time.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: This school has been extremely helpful to me these past years while being in the military deployed or not. That does not mean I have run into a few problems every once in a while, but they are very minor. The professors have helped me so much when I am in need of it especially when duty calls. In the military the mission comes first but I am still able to perform my academic duties.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I like the flexibility of online classes. i can work and post in the middle of the night and still be able to interact with fellow classmates. Because the classes were so short (5 weeks), they are all labor intensive. the first day of a new class will already be discussing you final paper. Even though you are working on one class at a time, the workload can still take up a lot of your time due to the intensity of the class.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I like the flexibility of the classes, and it was easy to transfer credits. My credit transfer did take some time, but that was because they were researching schools as far back as the 1970s, and I am sure it was not easy for them to obtain transcripts to those schools. By the time they were done, however, I was able to transfer 54 credits, putting me half way through school after only taking one class!

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: As online schools go, Ashford is a leader in student services. To the beginning student, there are advisors to turn to if you have any questions. When I first began classes there, I was notified at least once a week by my advisors checking to see if I had any questions or problems, and ensuring that things ran smoothly. My financial advisor once stayed on the phone with me for an hour just to make sure everything was taken care of and my fears and worries were laid to rest.

College Student

Campus Resources: Once again, I cannot answer this question or grade it, it would be unfair as I am attending Ashford's Online classes.

College Student

Campus Resources: I cannot grade this topic because I am an online student and wouldn't be able to grade fairly by guessing.

College Student

Career Services: I cannot grade this yet because I am just beginning classes at Ashford University. I have heard great things about the services offered after graduation, but I feel it would be unfair to pre judge when I cannot say for myself.

5 College Student

Campus Resources: My school has amazing resources for us online students right at our fingertips. We have the online Ashford Library which gives us access to a lot of books to aid us in our research. We also have the Ashford Writing Center; it gives us a walk through on how to form and write a paragraph and how to write in different styles, as well as how to cite your resources properly. We also have Refworks which is another program that helps you cite your resources. Turnitin is another program we have that we can use to double check our assignments to make sure they are plagiarism free. All these resources and more are why I would give Ashford an A+.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The best part of Ashford University is the flexibility of the classroom. I can work on my assignments at my convenience. Deadlines are consistent and easy to meet.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The computer network, for the online programs, works very efficiently. In the past year and a half I can only recall one time where there were any problems with the network.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I am in the online program, so I do not need to use any of the on campus resources. The online resources are great though.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Due to the short length of each class, it can be difficult to adjust to each new instructor. I have only had one instance where I needed assistance from the TA and I received a response within a reasonable amount of time. So far, the classes seem to run smoothly and the material has been easy to understand. I have been looking forward to starting each new class.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: I was put into a Psychology class and it didn't really interest me all too much. It was kind of hard as well, but I pushed through a received a B-; this is my lowest grade so far. I am proud of myself for how hard I try in my college courses.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Computer network is pretty good for online classes but has problems sometimes.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have been applying for scholarships and awards since I started At Ashford in Aug 2011 but i have not won on this site yet. Can anybody tell me how long did it take for them to win after started enrolling in the College Prowler and Scholarship Points awards? Am I just wasting my time?

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Enjoyable and relaxing. You are able to log in on your own time and schedule from your home or wherever you feel comfortable. The courses associated with the bachelors of Psychology degree program are interesting and fun. I look forward to attending courses and logging into my student portal everyday.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Going to Ashford University was the best decision that I have ever made. The administration is extremely nice and helpful, the teachers are very experienced and understanding to their student's problem and concerns. Also, the curriculum is interesting, sometimes the work can be really fun to do.

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.
