As a returning student after many years, I had doubts as to whether I could get into the learning process again, and most definitely doubts about the online learning process. My Enrollment Services Advisor talked me through every aspect of online learning, including the tutorial, and addressed every one of my concerns. We had weekly (sometimes more) chats to discuss frustrations or difficulties with the whole computer process, and made sure I knew what I was doing and how to proceed. We became friends through it all!

It is hard to say everything in a few words. Everyone is great here! I wish I would have come here before going to UOP! I have nothing bad to say at all about my experience so far. I will stay here until I reach the end of my education goals for sure. I fell in love from the first phone call. If you want the best, then they are it! The advisors care about you and call you at least once a week to check on your progress and to see how you are just doing in general. The professors treat you like a person and not a number and interact with you at any level you wish and they get behind you and give you the drive to achieve your academic goals. You can't beat the best! Ashford University should be ranked number # 1 above any online schools.

Ashford provides all the tools necessary for success. The five week online courses fit perfectly in my life, and are definitely relevant to the pursuit of my Business Administration and Management degree, as well as in my professional career as an Independent Certified Paralegal, and community organization involvement as President of my local Rotary Club. I am already thinking differently in my day to day activities!
