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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I really like the online Library for the school. They have so many peer reviewed and legitimate databases to do research for my assignments.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I have never had any issues getting my work done online with this school. Everything is easily accessible and easy to understand how to use. I caught on very fast. The speed to load anything in the online classroom is great I never have to wait.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I think this school is average with other schools that have online programs. However, I really like how prompt the advisors are there. When I was searching to go to school they had me done and ready in less than a months time.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: They are challenging and educational. I enjoy the flexibility of online classes and the ability to further my education without compromising my daily life expectations. The work load can sometimes become overwhelming but is comparable to campus expectations, the faculty have been great as well as the student body. I am very happy with Ashford and intend on completing my education with them.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: I returned to school after 25 years and decided I needed to update my career choices. Ashford has made that possible. I am currently completing my 10th course and could not be happier with the results. I am a A student, made deans lists 2 consecutive semesters, have been inducted into the lamda, and key club. I work hard but they school works with me to make it possible. I have had some financial problems recently and they have graciously worked with me on the situation to allow me to remain in school, in spite of my situation.

2 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The facilities on campus are average. There isn't much of anything really going on. The library is okay and the tutoring center is cool and accessible. The gym is new but you don't get to play in as much if you're not an athlete. There usually isn't much of anything going on. When they do have activities; such as for Black History month and Choir concerts.

1 College Freshman

Career Services: I don't think there is a great career service unless it involves Clinton, Iowa.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I go online and I have never had a problem with anything!

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: I love that there are many different degrees offered online and on campus!

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Teachers are not very attentive sometimes it take several times to get a responce from some of the professors.

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.
