Overall Experience: The experience was okay. Gained a valuable education through hard work and discipline, but the overall negative experience was gained through the cost of the institution. If one wishes to use financial aid to gain an education, this is not the place to go.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel as though I am getting a good education, and the structure of the online learning process is very convenient for my busy schedule. I am not happy that I had to put out of pocket money for a lab kit that didn't even arrive until after week 2 of my class.

Any communications with the financial aid office have been positive, as they do give complete explanation of benefits. I will say, however that I was told that all of my financial aid paperwork was complete a couple of months ago when I inquired, and then all of a sudden it popped up that my independent worksheet wasn't signed. Not sure why that wasn't noticed when I submitted a couple of weeks ago. I hope this doesn't affect my aid.

Academic Flexibility: It is very convenient to attend this school because of the online flexibility. There is no set time to attend the class, only to submit the assignments and online discussions.

Overall Experience: As I have mentioned earlier in this survey, most of the professors are fabulous. However, the professor for the Government class was unreasonable with her expectations. I received many emails from fellow students who felt the same way. Her assignments were difficult to understand, even the first week; for students who have no prior knowledge of government processes. Even after reaching out for assistance, she was still uncaring and unreasonable. Her comments/feedback was even difficult to comprehend to apply to the final paper.

I had many examples that I used that I felt applied to the assignment, but was given low scores because it didn't meet her expectations of what she was asking in the assignment.

Online Courses: I really enjoy the convenience of the online courses. The workload is very manageable with my heavy schedule. I am a full time mom, who works a full time job, and carries my school load. My kids are in sports, which adds to my already busy day! Taking online courses allows me to tap into my class when it is convenient for me, allowing me to have a better mindset while studying.

Student Body: Considering I am online learning only, I can only respond to the interaction I have had with students via discussion posts or emails over the last year. Reading some of the discussion posts, I feel that most of the students are well educated. There is also a lot of diversity in the classroom ,and everyone has a different aspect of knowledge to provide. I enjoy reading their posts, and hearing what they have to add to my discussions.

I also appreciate that Ashford took the necessary steps to reprimand a student who plagiarized one of my discussion posts and claimed for his own. Although I do still see that student included in classes, however I haven't had any more difficulties with that

Career Services: This actually doesn't apply to me yet

Academic Experience: The instructors have been fine, with the exception of the Government instructor. Her expectations for the freshman class were unreasonable.

My other instructors have been great.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Most of the classes are just fine, but some of them just don't seem pertinent to my degree. The government class that I took was very confusing and the instructor was unhelpful. Her expectations for the freshman class were very high, and the assignments were unreasonable. She was very difficult to understand in her explanations of the assignment requirements. I reached out several times to her, and the turn time for a response was unacceptable.

I had several email dialogues with fellow students in the class who felt the same way. She failed some of us, even though I met every expectation of the class. My answers were not good enough to her standards, but fell completely inline with the expectations of the assignments to my understanding.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I am completely online schooling, however everytime I have had to reach out to the staff at Ashford, they have been more than helpful.

Academic Experience: Ashford was 1 out of only a few schools that offer classes toward the degree that I wish to obtain on line. The curriculum offered touches my field of study in a very general sense. I will need to further my specialized education and obtain naturopathic licensing at a different institution in a different state unless by that time, the state I reside offers licensing. Unfortunately, there are no internships available too. The curriculum I am attending at Ashford will however, get me prepared for the specialized institution that I wish to apply to and hopefully attend, graduate and obtain my naturopathic licensing.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
