Degree: Entrepreneurship
Graduation Year: 2020

This school is not a good school to go to if you're seeking a degree go elsewhere because they treat you like garbage. Especially if your disabled. I am an AB student what a good grade point average. I've been accused of plagiarism there's something I don't understand because I never plagiarized work anything in my life. I was always an honor roll student and when I was accused of plagiarism I was very upset

Degree: Health/Health Care Administration/Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I recently completed my Bachelor's in Health Care Administration. When I first started at Ashford, I was so excited and I was receiving calls every other day from the staff (financial advisors, student advisor, etc) to ensure my experience with the online courses. After about 2, maybe 3 months, I didn't receive any calls and it was hard to contact staff when you had a problem with online classes, financial aid, etc. I had to repeat two classes and now I have to pay out pocket for financial aid being disbursed before my VA benefits had a chance to post. I was so excited that I graduated because this school sucks and I wouldn't recommend that anyone go to this school for any degree. They don't reach out to you to see if you adapting to online courses or any changes that may have occurred that you were unaware of. Some of the instructors grade differently from others, so don't be surprised if you fail a course and after you retake the course you pass with a higher grade. I'm glad that I kept pushing myself because there were many times where I wanted to quit, but since I've graduated, I can honestly say that my Ashford experience sucked!!!!!! Do yourself a favor and enroll with another school. (Some people have different experiences than others, but if you are just starting at Ashford, it will be good for a few months, but after that, look forward to the lack of professionalism when it comes to any problems you may have).

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I have enjoyed my time at Ashford. The reps were always helpful and courteous when I called the school regarding any concerns that I may have had. Online schooling has been very convenient being that I am very busy throughout the week in my personal life. One concern would be the extravagant papers that we had to write. Writing 10 -12 pages on a topic is a bit much and makes me feel like I'm repeating myself. Other than that, the experience was great!

Degree: Alternative and Complementary Medicine and Medical Systems, Other
Graduation Year: 2016

This is one of the most disorganized places I have dealt with during the whole of my life. Each departments seems to exist in its own little world and they do not talk to the other departments so you as the student are constantly stuck in the middle trying to fix something they should handle at their level. The student advisors...I had three of them during my tenure at Ashford....were clueless and could care less about your concerns. The VA counselors for active duty or veterans...they won't even return your call if you have an issue. The class instructors were hit or miss, some were good, some were just horrible. Grading is all over the map. I would NOT recommend this school to anyone. Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. Two of my co-workers dis-enrolled from Ashford because they were so frustrated.

Degree: Marketing - Digital Marketing
Graduation Year: 2017

If you enjoy going back and forth with admissions, student advisers (who are helpless and work in call centers), instructors who aren't familiar with the pre-written curriculum, and a collections company that calls itself their "financial aid department", then this is the school for you. Let's start with the curriculum: my program's curriculum was at least 4 years old. Since being written, changes in my industry were such that I was learning exponentially more from my job than I was from my classes. The classes are grossly overpriced for the attention you get and the information provided. A toddler could pass these classes. I was shut out of my classes several times for not having the proper documents signed or for having small amounts of money due to the university (after years of attendance) without notice from my adviser. They have raised my tuition EVERY year in the last three years. They change processes without feedback from the student body. They do not thoroughly qualify their students. This for-profit school was a terrible heartache of an experience that I feel I got nothing from but anxiety and a huge, huge bill. I am attempting to transfer their credits now. I'll let you know how that goes.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

I have been a student for 7 months and still not received my financial aid money. Get the run around every time I call. It's ridiculous. But they sure take your money like lightning. This school really need to step up their game with military students. It's a shame

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2020

Ashford is a good school, period. They are not a diploma mill. They have standards. Their admission policy is liberal, which means that many people who enroll will not complete their degree program. However, the expectations are the same as at "regular" colleges - read the assigned material, follow the instructions, demonstrate understanding of the material.

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

Well first start by saying I love this school! I have had other online classes for my Associates at my local college and another school. The program the other schools used was confusing to navigate and the professors completely changed the way assignments were presented and worked every class so I never knew what to expect. But with Ashford there is uniformity as far as when things are due which you have no idea how much that helps when you have so much else going on in life. I never had to worry about keeping track of when assignments are due because it was the same for every class and I absolutely love that. The Website Layout is great it's also the same for every class navigating it is easy. What is really neat is that one class week on Tuesday to Monday instead of the traditional Monday to Sunday. This really helps me because my kids have a lot going on on the weekends with their extracurricular so trying to rush and do homework on a Sunday isn't feasible but having that extra weeknight at the end of the week is really helpful.
