Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (182)
I wasn't exactly sure where I wanted to go in regards to career so after contemplating back and forth with a few other schools in thought, I began with general studies here and it has been more than what I could ask for. I am very satisfied with all the educational content in the courses and I finished my last payment easily before i graduated. Now that I have a bachelors in general studies I feel like I can go many places with it and promote myself along the way. I feel like I'm on the right track now which of course feels amazing. So far, I am thinking of pursuing more with Ashworth because it is just a perfect fit overall with the education and its affordability.I'm very happy with the outcome. As far as staff and professors go, They are great and very helpful, I personally believe that this school does their best to provide the student with everything that can possibly offer in terms of assistance and education which to me is exceptional customer service. All in all, a great choice I made in pursuing education here.
I finished my bachelors in marketing at Ashworth in just under 2 years. I've been lucky enough to find a job and can balance my family as well. People are saying they did not receive books or had poor customer service- but I did not experience that. Online school is tricky sometimes but once you get it down into a routine you too can find success.
I currently graduated from the HVAC program. My company encouraged me to do this, but that's a separate issue. As far as I'm concerned the school doesn't get any stars. A trade occupation cannot be taught online, that needs hands on training. The last 3 weeks of my program getting down to my deadline, I finally got a pop up icon "do you need help". REALLY.... If you need help good luck. The downfalls.... Have no idea who the professor is or even if I had questions, no way of communicating. If you do happen to get ahold of the school it's always a representative. Funny thing is I completed all the assignments, but I was only 93% completed. Couldn't figure out why ?? Come to find out I had a project to do. No emails to alert me. If I hadn't contacted a representative at the school....probably would've failed ?? The final exam, what a way to make a fool out of a person. After a year and a half of this course, trying to figure out this occupation on my own & other technicians coming in to assist & trying to learn from them....I'm to the point I don't even want to go to my job anymore due to poor education. Sure....my administrators & bosses are proud of my accomplishments & the 3.75 GPA. The tests are all open book and get 3 chances to take each test to get a higher score. There's no sense of accomplishment there....that's just lazy on the other end. My opinion to others looking into this school....save yourself the trouble & find a hands on technical school or just jump off a cliff.
Great school, especially if you are looking to go into marketing in the business industry, they provide exceptional and up to date information that is on point in today's businesses. I believe I made the right decision earning my masters here and am very pleased and proud of this accomplishment.
Just graduated with my A.S degree! I'm enlisting in the Marine Corps, and my degree is already giving me an extra rank when I start boot camp! If the military accepts Ashworth as a legit institution, I'll definitely be coming back here for my Bachelors!
Skeptical at first but at the end, Best school I ever enrolled and invested my time in! I earned my associates in finance and I am grateful I can now begin my career.It is everything I ever wanted and more. That being said, now that I know how this school works I am highly considering a bachelors degree. Very good experience!
I am very pleased with the fact that this school offers the electronic health records training course. I work in a doctors office and being able to learn as well as understand records is a great help especially working in a medical career as now EHR is becoming a required skill to have in many facilities. I am most certainly looking forward to my certification soon,This has helped my career in many ways!
I am currently in a Master's program with Ashworth and am totally aggravated by the lack of access to faculty. I am tired of receiving graded assignment that say "poor grammar" or other such comments with nothing marked on the assignments, so that I can see what went wrong. I graduated from an Ivy League school and have never received papers back that say "poor grammar," which leads me to believe that the professors may have a poor grammar base which with they are grading. Also, instructions for assignments are convoluted and contradictory. I know that no matter what I submit it will be unsatisfactory. Students need to go through "advisors" to get information back about assignments for progress. I do not understand why, unless it is to save money by not paying for extra faculty time. Good luck to people in these programs. I wish was learning more and could understand why I am getting the grades that I do. Ashworth is quick enough to take money though....
As other reviews have said- you get what you put in at Ashworth. I earned my degree in accounting and now work in finance. I had to put in all of the extra effort that goes into taking classes online. Is it for everyone? Maybe not, but it is for those are self motivated and want to better themselves. Same goes for the people who are posting that the help folks aren't helpful- they are but you must be clear when what your issue is. When I had one I was civil and the problem got resolved.
I am in the process of finishing my certification/diploma program at Ashworth and I am very, very pleased at what this school has provided in terms of their curriculum and education technique. I am in pursuit of becoming a certified teacher's aid and I am earning my certification so that I may intern which will afford me the ability to work with children and learn the industry of childhood education. I have an aspiration to become a teacher and while interning, I am going pursue an Associate's degree through Ashworth so I can take the next step in my chosen career field. I want to work with young children, preferably kindergarten and I believe speaking with the Department of Education and Ashworth's program, it is giving me a really great insight on what to expect in this chosen field. The curriculum that Ashworth is providing, the books and testing is excellent and I highly recommend it. The only thing is, I wish they would establish a Bachelor's degree so that those who are looking to be in the teaching career, can grow more through this really great school! Other than that, I have absolutely no complaints with this school.
