4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: My online experience is going well. I love being able to set my own schedule and having my own balance with this online course. I am able to work at my own pace and completing assignments in a timely manner.The workload could be more than expected but fair and reasonable.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My major is in Elementary Education or Education Studies. The class is off to a great start. Everything that I am taking is in connection with education and children. The workload is fair and not overwhelming at all.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: My school may consist of people with full time jobs or full time parents. They have other responsibilities that may require their attention, in addition to being students. Most will agree that they are putting in work to provide a better life for their families and hope to start their career.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The process to begin is very long. The professors are more than happy to assist you on anything you may be concerned about. The workload is manageable but you have to have the right mindset to get it done and some sort of balance.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: The workload was challenging in the beginning but I learn how to manage it with my work schedule in time. The online classes was very convient for me go to work during the day.

1 College Senior

Academic Experience: What a rollcoaster ride. My educational experience has very stressful and unfulling. I have had some difficulties with my core classes. I haven't successful pass due to my own fault. I have reached out to my advisor, but most of the time you hear from them unless you own money and then they call like you have committed a crime. Once I finish my degree program, I will never recommend this university yo anyone

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The reason I chose Ashford University was because of the flexibility. I was able to work a full time job, be mom and still continue my school work. I am able to log into my account any time day or night and submit my work. The deadlines are very reasonable. My only complaints are that the Academic counselors are not very helpful as well as I have had 5 different ones in the last 6 months for who knows why. The school keeps changing them on me. I also find it frustrating that the counselors do not know what to refer students to and they do not know if you are even taking the right classes for your major.

1 College Junior

Career Services: After I graduated with my AA I tried accessing the career center and even submitted a resume. Needless to say 6 months later I yet to hear anything back from them. I am really disappointed with the academic advisers. Whenever I ask them for assistance either I do not hear back or I am told to just read the website and make my decisions based on what I read.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Im getting an OK education but it is NO WAY! worth what they are charging for the classes. My only hope is to be able to find a good job after I graduate.

2 College Senior

Student Body: Primarily geared towards minorities and military. Felt very out of place at times.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: When I was in my last two classes the University did cut backs and laid off my advisor. It was chaos after that. When continuing into the masters program there was little help and was unable to contact anyone for assistance. Took way to much time!

4 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: They are there when i need them and i know there work hours and they get back to me as soon as they can. the classes have there dead lines but it is easy to follow them.

Career Services: SO far i have an A and i work my butt off and i love that i can still do my daily routine and get my work done with the time i want to

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid package was fine, but I had to borrow more than I wanted. The colleges near me are cheaper priced, but they have limited online classes.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: My last instructor had graded our class papers, and he stated that everyone had done the assignment wrong. Well I did not, and asked him to re-grade. We finished the class last week and he still has not looked over my assignment. There has been no response yet.

4 College Senior

Career Services: I have not had the opportunity to use the career center yet.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I have enjoyed the online classes. They go well with my daily schedule.
I can work on my assignments whenever I need to, and that is why I decided on Ashford.

4 Recent Alumnus

Student Body: I believe that my school consist of students that had full time jobs and families. I was able to attend this school online and from interacting with my classmates many where coming back to school after 15-20 year breaks. They had full time jobs as well as families. They were able to use their experiences in many of the course work.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: The reason I give this school an A+ because it was easy for me to contact teachers, counselors and etc... when or if a problems occur or if I have a question. This school was able to assist me in transferring all my credits from previous schools and allowing me to continue with my education. The online classroom was easy to navigate through and it was convenient for me. Ashford University also has an Apple App that allowed me to complete discussion boards when I was unable to be near a computer. This school is very military friendly; all forms can be submitted online such as a military drop which I thought that was awesome because of the lack of printers and fax machines that are around during deployment.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have found it to be convenient to be taking online classes. I am a single mom with children therefore, trying to shuffle four kids on top of school work could be a bit challenging, but with attending an online college, my degree feels like a few clicks away.

4 College Junior

Career Services: So far, everyone appears to be helpful. I am currently experiencing issues with getting my transcripts from my previous school requested, however, I have taken the liberty of getting it myself. Just need to ensure it would get to the right person.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is awesome! Extremely affordable and the financial aid office is on top of their game.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I am attending Ashford-Online. However the online student center and library are excellent resources and very easy to navigate.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: There are several reasons I chose this school! Flexibility, price, length of classes, degree program. Great school!

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My financial package has been great, however I have depleted what is available to me federally, which is why I am seeking other channels of financial aid to complete my degree on schedule in March of 2014.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
