4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Although it's an online school, there is a virtual hangout/cafe, but no one uses it. It differs from another online school I attended where students did interact in the online cafe--but that's okay. Everyone is really busy and focuses on their school work.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: Online students at Ashford University are extremely diverse. There are single mothers; active and retired military persons; working people; stay-at-home moms; and African American; Latino; Caucasian; and Asian individuals. Everyone brings a different worldview to the classroom, and and this creates a stimulating learning environment.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: All the professors I've had have been superior, with great academic credentials, as well as experience in their respective fields. Registering is easy, and Ashford University places online students into the correct classes, so there will be no surprises when it's time to graduate. You won't find out you haven't taken required classes.

5 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Ashford University's financial aid process is efficient. As with any school, you should apply for financial aid early as possible, to get the maximum amount.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I tried online classes at another university that used a traditional semester model, but that did not work for me. However, Ashford University has 5-week modular classes which allow me to focus on one subject at at time. This is perfect for me, and my GPA is 4.0 thus far. The classes are demanding, but I'm learning so much.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What makes Ashford University unique is that it not only has online classes but is also a physical school. Staff has been nothing but helpful in encouraging me toward high academic standards as well as being available to help me make career decisions and answer all questions.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Ashford University goes out of its way to assure ease with scheduling classes and transferring credits. They even requested all my transcripts for me.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I'm an online student and the digital resources are the best. You could not ask for a better online college experience.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I'm an online student, and the online databases are extensive. Resources are also available via email and chat; any help you need is readily available.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I took business classes at another school and they were not adapted into my credits. I was very disappointed, Ashford claimed the school was not accredited during my time of study and if it so became accredited they still would not except them.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: I don't have to deal with the hassle or loud students in a traditional classroom. I can work at my own speed.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I wish they would have informed me that I would need to pay out of pocket monies before sending me disbursement checks. Now I am in need of monies to graduate, or I will be a failure and that is my true fear.

5 College Junior

Student Body: I have had the opportunity to have class with many different types of people, and it has taught me a lot.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: They offer no scholarships or information on how to gain any, and that sucks.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: I think since I go online all books for class should be included in tuition already, not be charged additional for books.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Take B.A. courses in Human Services on-line from Ashford University.

Tuition & Financial Aid: My school's tuition and financial aid process was very easy. My admissions counselor as well as my financial advisor guided me on the right path to choosing what financial options were best for me.

Overall Experience: My overall experience has been great so far. I'm just now getting back to school and my admissions counselor had made be feel very comfortable and has made everything smooth sailing as far as registration is concerned.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: What I really like about my school is that my admissions counselor is there for me throughout the first 7/8 weeks of my program. She stays on top of me and does follow up calls to be sure I understand my course and the task I need to complete to be successful in obtaining my online degree.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had an excellent experience with Ashford in more ways than one. The TA's and teachers are there to help you if you need it and they make themselves available and are very interactive. Also, I've had a lot of positive feedback from fellow classmates.

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.
