College Student

Campus Resources: I am a non traditional student so there technically is no campus. Though the interface, which serves as a sort of campus, is user friendly.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Online student, Library at times gives bad sources

Online Courses: Everything about the online courses is wonderful as long as the student is willing to meet the deadlines and set aside time to complete assignments and take the quizzes. The professors are flexible when needed. The peer-to-peer interaction is better in the online courses than it was in any of the classes I took at my community college. The same goes for the professor/student relationship. Professors at traditional schools tend to be very busy and unable to help students with differing needs, but the opposite is true at Ashford University. Everything about the online courses has taken me from a below-average student to a straight A student.

Academic Flexibility: I feel like the school really accepts people that did not succeed at a traditional school, and gives them a chance to prove that they can do well in an online environment. Transferring credits was easy. Most professors are flexible, and the classes are designed to make sure you have plenty of time for your assignments before the due dates. Some professors are a little more rigid with their participation and attendance than other professors, so it is important to get to know the professor and the course requirements no later than the first day of class. You can only drop a class for free in the first week.

Overall Experience: I would choose Ashford again if I could do it all over. Ashford was able to transfer all of my applicable credits from my community college over. They put me on an academic watch for four courses because I did not leave my previous school in good standing, but they did not deny me for that reason. I was grateful that the counselor I spoke to after I turned in my application was so caring and knowledgeable. She got to know me as a person, cared about why I did not do well in a traditional school, and evaluated my motivation to succeed in a nontraditional school. I am still amazed by the level of investment the school has in its students' successes. I am thankful that I applied to Ashford University.

Overall Experience: The professors that teach the online courses at Ashford University are all qualified, and able to teach the subject in a way anyone can understand. The introductory courses are helpful for future courses. There are a wide variety of courses offered, however, it is worth noting that Ashford does not offer foreign language classes. The class sizes become smaller after you exit the introductory courses. The way the online courses at Ashford are set up, it is easy to keep up with the course work if you are good with time management. The classes cover a lot of information in just five weeks, and it is important to have some kind of schedule for school work, or it is very easy to fall behind in a class.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am only a freshman and have not looked into advanced career prospects or internship/externship prospects yet. I have not contacted career services yet, as I was undecided on my major.

College Freshman

Student Body: I only attend classes online.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Ashford offers several different methods to pay your tuition. The financial aid office is extremely helpful. They explain any additional steps you need to take in easy terms. Most of the classes I have taken have been worth the tuition I have paid for the credits. Before you contact the financial aid office at Ashford, complete your FAFSA application and make sure you enter Ashford's school code - that way, the office knows what you have to work with and can better advise you of other options if you need more money for your tuition.

College Freshman

Career Services: I have not tried to contact career services yet, because I am a college freshman. I am looking forward to doing so, however, because all of the staff at Ashford University is exceptionally kind, and willing to listen and help.

College Freshman

Academic Experience: I have not yet completed my general education classes, so I have not moved on to the major course requirements for my major.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The classes at Ashford all follow the same weekly schedule, which definitely makes it easier to stay on track with assignments as you transition from class to class every five weeks. The professors are all extremely knowledgeable, and treat all students fairly. The workload is manageable for an adult that works and has a family, like myself. The curriculum of each class is always engaging, and the way the classes are set up guarantees the opportunity to learn and express any questions or concerns you may be having to your peers or your professors.

College Freshman

Campus Resources: I am an online only student.

Overall Experience: What my overall experience at the school so far that is amazing is at the beginning of my course the level of honor and integrity that the school encourages the student to display and to be courteous and gracious to their peers when answering questions. I found this standard to be remarkable and something that a student gives thought to when they are writing and answers questions.

Overall Experience: My overall experience includes experience with being a secretary for several years, and being a Certified Community Representative. I have had the experience of engaging with families and the services they need. I also have experience with special need children because I have two daughters with special needs and I come in contact with challenging behavior all the time. I also are engaged with a lot of teacher meetings in regard to my daughters disabilities and how there challenging behavior affects their schooling. The course I have had have made my degree valuable before I graduate because I am able to be more understanding of the teachers because I understand their approaches to teaching and I am able to pass t his information on to my daughters so that they can better understand what the teacher wants so that they will not misinterpret what the teacher needs them to do.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I have had the pleasure of reading discussion from various classmates and it was worthwhile and helpful to learning the course. The course was always scheduled appropriately after each other and available to begin our next class early if you wanted to. The online courses were very convenient for me because I have a family and I could access my course at any time during the day. The course management was appropriate for me because of the disability I was able to be provided with special assistance from the university. I really loved discussion and interaction with other students. Managing my workload with the extra time is okay on some days and on some days I have difficulty but I preserve to get it done because I dont want to let myself down for my family or the university that have given me a helping hand. I have had to use tech support and they were helpful with my computer problems. I have also received tech support from one of my professor when I had to redo a discussion and the profession helped me. The technology is very user-friendly and except for a few cliches I have received help and it was done quickly. I also had help during the snow storms from my professors when my computer went down.

There are also services provided that allow the student or alumnus access to the National Association of College and Employers.

Academic Experience: I have had the best advisor and professors. It was only one class that I could not understand and that was due to an onset of my complications with diabetes.

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.
