I just want to start off saying I do not recommend this school to any of my friends or family and it is your choice if you decide to go to school. I also want to say the beat of my own opinion. I took online classes in which they never taught you how to look for anything you had to figure it out on your own.their customer service in the financial part is rude, expecially their supervisor Marley. She will talk over you and hang up on you constantly. they also tell you they will set up a payment plan that works best for you and they won't. one person will say one thing in customer service and then when you call back to confirm it it's another thing. overall the experience of there syllabus and the schooling itself was not a very good quality my personal opinion. I actually had to go to another school to finish out my degree. like I said this is my own personal review.

I have been studying with Ashworth College since 2012 and I have been happier than I ever been at any school. I love that you can study at home at your own time and that the tuition is affordable. I have learned a lot more at this school than at any other school I have attended and have done well here too. Customer Service is good too, they have always worked with me to make it to where I can afford the tuition payments and any problem I have had they have always corrected. No problems. I would recommend Ashworth to anyone and already have. I mean paying only a fraction of what tuitions at other schools are and studying at your own time at your own pace is a real oppurtunity to eat your cake and have it too (Watch Mary Kate Olsen on Holiday In The Sun if you think I got the saying wrong) . I got some advice, before signing up make sure you read EVERYTHING on the site including the small print. Know what you are getting into and make sure it is exactly what you want before making a commitment. Also follow the guidelines. Make your payments on time, and just because the exams are open book you STILL have to study for them because the tests are timed and its a part of life to study for tests anyway. Follow all directions when you do your assignments and if you need help Ashworth has tutors you can contact. And no tutor can do the assignment for you or tell you the answers to an exam. Everyone knows that is cheating. Ashworth also has their accreditation listed and as for transferring credits to another college that is more up to the institution you are wanting to go to than it is the degree itself or Ashworth. Just because one school won't accept Ashworth does not mean every school won't. Each institution has certain policies when accepting credits. Even regionally accredited credits are not always accepted by some schools. There are tons of schools that will accept Ashworth, you just have to google them and do your research. And also if you want the staff at Ashworth to be nice to you, BE NICE TO THEM. Do not use curse words, or be rude, or shout or post on their community that they are a scam. If you ever worked in customer service you know that that behavior alone is enough to put you in a bad mood. And if you are angry cause you can't get your degree until your tuition is paid off be lucky that they even let you study while still owing your tuition because most schools and mainly traditional schools won't even let you attend until you paid your tuition. Pay your payments ON TIME. The due date is right there when you log into your student portal.

I am appalled at the negative reviews about this school. I went to this school for 3 different certifications and each time I have NEVER had a problem with anything!!!!! I am now going using my military Spousal benefits and again no issue. I love this school Its good and its true and the credits are transferrable as I was attending Clayton State but due to life events I had to withdraw. And that's what I love with this school it is at your own pace and online so no matter what is happening in your life you can still get your degree. Plus they let me choose a variety of certificate programs because I'm not sure what Degree plan I want to go for. And the school is beyond affordable. My first certificates I came out of pocket and did the payment plan received my diploma in the mail as told I would.

Horrible. No anatomy class to become a personal trainer? Classes did not apply to certification test. You receive a voucher after graduation to take the certification test, it took 9 months to get this voucher... after I called several times and was either lied to or hung up on.

I was sick, therefore attending a regular school was not an option for me. No matter what doctors told me and how sick I got I kept pushing. I was able to study in hospital bed as well as in bed at home. I was able to receive my diploma without having to get up and go to an actual class. I physically wasn't able to attend a physical classroom so it was good. No matter what people tell you you can do anything you set your mind to. Ashworth helped me achieve. I am now in the works of opening up my own business.

This school is an incredible scam with the rudest customer service people I have ever spoken with. I hat this school IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE IT IS. The quizzes and tests are a joke they are automated from a pool of questions. They straight up lied to me about what I was paying per semester. This school is a SCAM stay far away I wish I had listened to all the negative reviews I read before starting here.

It's all true. It's the worst! I did the school for two days and I requested to stop going and I did all the required tasks to get out. I'm getting calls from the collection agency saying I owe the school $1000. I contacted the school (which took about a week and a half for them to respond) and said I had to pay the full amount because they forgot to make me fill out another paper. They are not professional at all, and now I have to pay for something that I didn't even want.

Common sense tells you before you began any college whether online or not, you should research the program and make sure that it meets your needs if you want to further your education. You should have looked at the course guide and spoke to a college adviser of the college you would eventually transfer to and see if Ashworth courses transferred over prior to enrolling. That just common sense, never start something without researching it completely. I researched this program completely before I started and it meet my requirements. There are too many people trying to speak negatively of this school without properly understanding the program and it's content completely. Don't blame the school, blame yourself!

I absolutely loved getting my degree from Ashworth college. I started my studies in their local community college and finished at ashworth. They easily transferred my credits and it was affordable. I was a single mom of 3 small children at their time and then fact that I could study at home with no commute was priceless. I prefer to learn on my own which I did by reading them curriculum they sent me and took online tests with them help of the local librarian who served as a proctor over me. It was easy to understand, simple to achieve and was void of any distractions that is evident in typical college experience. I have worked as a teacher for over 10 yes now and am so glad I earned my degree at Ashworth. I also do Nursing now which I learned back in high school in a technical program. I am possibly considering registering again st Ashworth to further my skills in physical or occupational therapy aide. They will transfer any credits I previously a achieved that apply and give me a huge discount for being a returning student.

I signed up for this school and talked to a very nice representative on the phone who was very considerate. Afterwards I was excited and hopped on signed my agreement and registered on the student portal. I noticed under shipment it stated... back order item for my text and supplies i was told i needed for the class. I wrote an email asking about the status and if this will be held against me... and three days went by. I called and talked to someone and she stated.... I don't know... what? ... I'm confused aren't you suppose to know? She stated she didn't know if this is going to be held against me and the item on back order .. she has no idea if this is going to be in. Well with only two days before i could cancel my enrollment and not have to pay additional fees and lose my down payment I told her to cancel it. She stated it would be 3-5 days before that would be returned to me. I felt like this is a scam if they didn't know anything. I'm sure everyone"s experience is different than mine... but I ask that if you do sign up please take the time to read your agreement and know what you are signing up for.

What an awful customer service base. They will scam you out of money. You've been warned. They make comcast look like a saint. After my initial agreement I ended up paying hundreds in hidden costs. They lure you in with promises and deals but in the end you just get screwed over. Also if you're late and you have auto payments count on 110 charge for administrative fee and you'll have to pay 40 shipping fee and a late 7 dollar fee. What a scam school. I wish I never enrolled here.

I'm a little confused on your comment pertaining to the late fees. If you had auto payments, how were you late?
