5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Everything is pretty much already set up in terms of classes and availability. And the faculty is very attentive to my needs academically, financial, etc.

Campus Quality: The online environment is very flexible with your schedule. The school offers the Ashford writing center for coaching on writing papers. The library is also very useful as it offers several databases for a wide variety of research.

Academic Flexibility: For an online course, they do make you get online very often even though I am going to school online because I don't have the time to attend a regular classroom course.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Ashford does not help you with understanding the collage experience, we had discussed the cost of going there, but after they raised the tuition every year after, this created a extra bill they do not tell you about until you have attended more than nine months of classes, they sent me 1600.00 dollars which gives you the idea there is plenty of money, but the truth is by the time you get 96 credits, you owe them 4,000.00 more than the agreed amount from the start, FASA only gives about 54,000.00 for your education on a bachelors degree, although I have all the credits I need, I need two Associates degrees to finish the 120 credits, because they will not let me continue classes because I owe them money, I will not be able to finish my education unless I get a grant that I can apply to the amount I owe, also there was never any grants that had Ashford as a qualifying University, before you enter any educational programs make sure you know everything about the loans.

Campus Resources: I love the Ashford library. Everything is easily accessible and easy to use. Any kind of information i could ever need is right at the tip of my finger.

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.
