Ashford University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (586)
First off this is not a bad school and it is accredited. I have had such a wonderful experience at the school. I just graduate with my bachelors in healthcare administration and I am pleased say that I graduated with a 3.68. School is what you make it. And if I every had needed anything I was always taken care of. So yes I would recommend this school to anyone. I am for anyone who didn't know they have a beautiful campus.
I went to Ashford from 2012-2014. I had to take a break do to life, (3 kids and moving). I would say 90 percent of the professors I had where professional and understanding. The cost is a bit high. I am still paying for my last class I had to withdraw from due to a broke computer from a kid. I can't remember my GPA it was above 3.5, I had a 4.0 before we moved. These class are shorter, but require as much time if not more then a traditional class room, which can be a challenge. I plan o n returning to Ashford to finish my degree. I always to a week break between classes to clear my head. You can take up to 2 weeks without dis-enrolling.
Stay away from "For Profit" institutions such as Ashford. Unless you are already in a job, a degree from Ashford will not open any/many doors, it will saddle you with debt. There are better non-profit schools available at a cheaper rate, better credentials and student support. Way too many negatives to list, but just a word of caution, go elsewhere for your education, you waste your money, time, effort and your future potential at this institution. No benefits whatsoever with a degree from, "For Profit", Ashford.
Ashford is a good online school. You can get your degree without leaving your full time job.
I have been attending Ashford for two years. From the moment I spoke with Megan, who was basically my recruiter, I knew Ashford was for me. I am an over thinker. Every decision has to be planned and thought about. I was researching and speaking with 3 other online schools. Ashford blew them all out of the water. The tuition is a bit high. There have been 2 cost increases, but that is life. You get annual raises at your job right... how do you think the extra funds get to you? The teachers have all been great. My adviser and the financial aide department have helped me numerous times. There was a mix up with paper work and instead of sending me a bill for a semester my financial aid specialist called me to tell me which form I had not returned. The classes are challenging. I am a mom of three busy kids and i work full time. I have a 3.96 GPA which I am very proud of. This school is fantastic. Hard work and effort are required. If you are lazy or do not like to write well thought out and researched papers you should not attend any college. Ashford is a great choice for someone who wants to succeed because every staff member at Ashford is there for your success!
I completed my BA in Child Development in 2014. With my degree, I have a much better job in my school district. I am now currently enrolled in the Masters program. I will be done with my Master degree in April 2015! Ashford is an awesome college with great teachers! One of the best decisions I have made.
This is the worst educational system I have ever dealt with. Constantly being transferred over and over. Wasn't able to really speak because every time I did she would interrupt me and/or talk over me. Telling me I was not told something because they don't tell students this or that. For this place it only comes down to money they don't care who is successful and graduates. This is probably why they have a 39.9% graduation rate. They are extremely unprofessional rude. No organization at all. Stay away from this place and go to a real university, be sure to do your research. I would put no stars but that isn't an option.
This is to serve as a warning not to Attend this university. Thua university Will not let you graduate on time, adding additional courses which would have to be paid before graduation. Because of this university I'm in debt of 65000. I wouldn't recommend this university to my enemy. They do not care about you. This university a negative 5.
I truly have nothing bad to say about Ashford University. It is a little more expensive for the convenience of online capability so it takes a lot of work. It is silly to me that all these poor reviews are put there. Now in MBA program and looking forward to graduating in 2016. If you are looking for a school with a great support system attend Ashford ... don't take all these naysayers advice it is a great school.
Stay away!!! This school is only in it for the money. I have had nothing but headache and problems. They increase tuition more than normal, they charge more fees and more for materials than normal. They are a private for profit university. They do not care about you, they care about your money. I had problem after problem with the financial aid dept. I was in the middle of getting my degree and they discontinued classes I NEEDED to get my degree, their answer was basically too bad for me, they can do what they want and they already have my money. I cant graduate now and am over 50,000 in the pit with them. I had to transfer to a different university and lost about 50 credits I paid and spent time earning. Teachers do almost no work and offer no help, a computer system handles all the grading a such. STAY AWAY!
