Campus Resources: Since I have been in attendence at Ashford they have added on more learning resources, some of them, in my opinion, are confusing to use, but I am sure that in time they will fix that.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Ashford University employees have for the most part been very helpful in explaining and helping with the process of financial aid.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: The classes for my major are very relevant to what I'll be doing in the future. And the educators of these classes are very caring and helpful. I find that the longer I am in attendance the more I am learning about being my own boss.
Plus the information being taught for my major, Entrepreneurship, is relevant to what I will be doing. With the exception of information taught on international business operations.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My advisor is really on top of this. Whenever I get stuck of confused all I have to do is call and he is there to help me.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The educators are knowledgable in the classes that they instruct in and answer questions in a timely manor. I just wish there were a quicker way to get answers, instead of the standard 24 hr wait time. The class I am in now, this instructor is on top of her emails, I have posted several questions to her for help and she answered within like 2-3 hours. Wish there were more instructors like her...

Academic Experience: It is very easy to register for any class at this school. The online classes are almost just like being in a class room.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are times that the classwork is more intense than I originally. Since I am in Arizona and the facilities are in Iowa, I do not know what is available there and what is not. But being from Iowa, many years ago, their schools are the top schools, so I trust their professionalism and academic programs.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The classes are 5 weeks in total, they go quite fast and for a working mother it gets a little difficult, but managable. Doing the classes online does make it much for convienent, especially not having to take the time to go to a campus. I can do the work, submit it and go on with work or home tasks.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: I have taken online courses at other schools, but this is the first time I felt like I was learning. This format of classes helps because you can prioritize your time and energy for everything else that you have to do that day. Convenience is the thing I love most about Ashford.

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.
