I found the textbooks to be informative and easy to understand. I worked steadily in order to finish my degree and assignments were marked on time. The cost was good because it included books and I didn't have to worry about sourcing them myself. But, the international posting of the books always caused a delay. My bachelor degree has been accepted in Australia and I intend completing my masters as well through Ashworth.

I was surprised how misleading other reviews here have been. Ashworth has truly surprised me with the depths of their programs, and the resources that have been available to me. Everything from the reading materials, to the materials that have been shipped to my home was, and still is amazing. I will be attempting to attend the school for another program in the near future.

I am extremely disappointed with Ashworth College. Their student services is just useless. Somehow one of my assignments showed me that I attempted to submit it twice which resulted in me getting the passing grade instead of the grade from the instructor. I didn't think this would be a big issue to call about since it must have been a blank page that was submitted or it was an error in the system. I already called twice about it without anyone being able to help me. Their excuse both times was that it's the regulation that you only get the passing grade after two attempts but does an empty page or an error count as an attempt? If this issue is not going to be resolved I will switch back to Pennfoster. I liked the structure of their webpage a lot better and they actually send me books to every topic which Ashworth doesn't do yet they charge the same as Pennfoster?! I'm not happy about this situation and it's so frustrating! There are a lot of good things about online college but this is something that wouldn't even be an issue in a regular college.

I would say that I have been having a great experience with Ashworth College. I'm going to graduate very soon I still have only 10 more courses to go which I'm planning on finishing them this year. Although I haven't graduated I've been sending out resumes to schools to test the water, schools seem to be pretty impressed with my qualifications and they're accepting towards this degree from ashworth. before I started this early childhood education degree I had already finished a bachelor's degree in psychology with an on campus college so I think it would be fair for me to make comments on Ashworth while I have a comparison. in terms of the quality of instruction I think Ashworth has done a great job it is not much difference from the instruction I received from my on-campus college. assignments guidelines are clear. is easy to know what should be filled in. content of courses are thorough you receive to help you get through your exams assignments. Support is always available by phone calls/ emails. the system is very easy to use it gives you a very good flow for studying. you always know what to expect during the journey. I've learned a great deal of knowledge in education from ashworth. I never understand why people keep saying that Ashworth is a scam. I think this happens to all online degrees you have to work hard in order to get the results no one is going to push you or make you do things you have to be very self-motivated when enrolled in an online course. is true that Ashworth is not regionally accredited but with the popularity of distance learning, nationally accredited degrees of the department of distance education have become a lot more acepted 70% of ashworth graduates are able to transfer their credits to regionally accredited schools. I think the result is absolutely worth the price. The price is extremely affordable as well. It basically provides a lot of people with the opportunity of finishing college because of the price and the flexibility. I would recommend ashworth to those who are self-motivated and proactive. because no one is gonna sit around and tell you what to do you have to do things by yourself independently in order to make achievements. i would not recommend it if you're trying to get into a masters program of a top university afterwards. However for career and regular further study ashworth would definitely be a good start to the path.

Hello

I'm enrolled in the BS early childhood education. I had already competed an associate before I started this program. So I only had to do 70% of the whole course. I started in Nov 2013 and now I have only 35% more to go : ) you're right. If you work very work you could actually finish it within no time.

As for the bad reviews I guess there are always different points of view... But if you pay attention the really bad ones were made years ago. I believe ashworth has made a lot of improvement so far.

Yes exams are open book. Some courses require you to do assignment and some dont. Most do and some could be challenging. Each semester can last as long as you want, you're given 4 years to complete an associate degree, 8 years for a BA.

Ashworth is a great college, I have completed my associates, in early Childhood Education, with the aim of working on my bachelor with Ashworth college Ashworth is a top notch college, just as any other top notch college. People who bash Ashworth are people who can't handle life or college education. Each college have their own guidelines, NEWS FLASH, all colleges is in it for the money. How else would their doors remain open? If you find one that is not please share!! I would recommend Ashworth to anyone. It is not Ashworth fault that you can't handle life. They are affordable college, offer a variety of online acredditted programs All of you small minded people get your facts straight about Ashworth. If you still have a problem, build a bridge and get over it. Plain and simple.

I liked it a lot. Some of my classes were challenging but I made it with hard work. Also, i had previous college classes.Ashworth gave me credits for some of them. Which, i only had to take two semesters with them. The classes are no different than any other online courses.

Vagirl, you will hear bad reviews even with colleges like Yale, Harvard, Howard, ect. The main goal is to stay focused and work hard. Communication is the key. I think a lot of negative reviews (not all) are from people who are not taking care of business (communicating) be it with your advisor, financial aid department, student services, ect. Ashworth, Yale, Harvard, Howard or any college will not spoon feed you. The hard work is up to us. They are there to assist. I had several credits to yransfer in from a previous college. I would say it took me about nine months definitely, I had to work hard for it.yes, the exams are open book. The semester session are self paced- really it all depends on how much time and effort you wanted to put in. But, just a word of advice. If you have a problem, communicate with your college meaning financial aid, student services, advisor ect.do not assume that they will take care of it. Ashworth is standing by to assist not to do it for us.

stop bashing

Before you consider Ashworth make sure you understand that if you enroll and decide you do not want to continue the program you have to call them or email as they quite deceptively make it very difficult to cancel. I myself like many others tried a program. I only completed the introduction part and decided it was not for me. I went online to look for a place to cancel tried to cancel and spent hours looking with no success. Like most people with a job and a busy life you move on and eventually forget about it assuming you were dropped. Well then Ashworth comes knocking to tell you that you owe them money most of the time it does not even happen till you are at the point where the program time has lapsed and they want you to pay for the entire program even if you never attended class. You can try to appeal to them like I did and they do not care they want money for having given you little or nothing. If you do not pay they send you to collections ruining you're credit. Even though you made a common assumption that the school did not contact you and you did not continue in the program so you would be removed or dropped like a normal college. No not ash worth instead they leave you enrolled until you owe the full amount then they contact you looking for money and send you to collections unless you pay. Shady indeed !!! Otherwise the material seemed to be quality.

I took and completed a course years ago with Ashworth with great success. I then applied for another course. I decided I didn't want to go any further with it and actually called the school in my car on my way home during lunch and had successfully cancelled the course before arriving home (which was a 10-minute trip). It wasn't hard at all to cancel.

Al, you should have done your homework. There were no hidden strings.Ashworth gives contract to sign. Also, they have rules, regulations, cancellation policy, and procedures. Read them become familiar with them. I have a job and family.I am NEVER to busy to take care of business. (Like canceling your enrollment to make sure the school drop you).Ashworth is normal. But, they will not spoon feed you.

I review Ashworth College as being a great college to receive an education. The courses are very straight forward. It's Affordable, and they have a great payment plan. There are really no excuses the get an education, rather it be something new to learn to begin a new job or career adventure, to advance yourself in the field your in, or as future ability. I complete a diploma in the new progam Administrative Assistant.I'm very proud of myself. THe next step is an Associate in business and possibly Bac. It worth it. In studies don't be afraid to ask question student services is available.
