Academic Experience: I love being a social science major. I am in the psychology club, social science club and history club. I enjoy talking with other students who are interested in the same things as I am. I haven't spoken to career services yet about job and internship opportunities, but I have done my own research where I live. I have the opportunity to do a externship at this place when I graduate, and the job that I currently work at always has social work jobs open.

Overall Experience: The education aspect of it is really great. Everything it takes to get to that point was very deceiving. When I enrolled, there was one specific concern I addressed immediately as my biggest concern. It was assured to me that this would not have been an issue in any way. Half way through my second term they reassessed my financial aid because they determined that this one concern was an issue. It ended up costing me a poor grade, over $2000 which they are battling me on, and a lot of frustration and stress. After signing an agreement stating that they did make a mistake and they would agree to pay half of the penalty, they have still yet to honor it 9 months later. I have had to wait over 9 months just to get back into classes because of this mess. The opportunity is great, as long as something like this doesn't hold you back.

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.
