Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (188)
I am currently taking classes at Ashworth College with a major in finance. So far I've had a good experience. I did take a week longer than I would've liked to get my course materials but it is what it is. With that said, since starting and getting going with my degree I've found my classwork challenging enough and I think I'll be happy when I plan to finish in two years with no debt! The payment plan was one of the things that attracted me to Ashworth College.
Took online classes in AutoCad from Ashworth College in spring of 2016. my interest was in AutoCad for Mac. The student advisor lied about program curriculum and promised that the ONLINE DIPLOMA IN Auto Cad includes tutorials for MAC. I paid 150$ for the enrollment to get access to the tutorials. The tutorials were all for Windows, old materials and kind of not up to date. The Ashworth college refused to return any money and ignored my requests. The worst place ever to study. hope my review will help someone decide not to invest in ASHWORTH college any penny:-((((
For the most part, Ashworth was pretty great! The only little things that were annoying was sometimes the site would be down for maintenance or it would take a bit for an assignment to be graded but other than that it was a pretty awesome choice. I found that I was able to learn a lot from them in terms of their vet tech program, the academic portion was sufficient with information about the subject and I was also very fascinated by some of the things I learned pertaining to the career. In the next few weeks, I will be starting an internship with a vet at an animal clinic which I am excited about because I will learn the hands on techniques and of course be around the animals :) I am very happy with my choice with Ashworth and I look forward to more with them hopefully in the near future.
The certificate program I took with this school was OK. I got a well written physical textbook and had no problems. With the degree program however, I noticed their grading was quirky. For instance they would comment on a Essay Writing exam that the essay was well written and then give me a D- grade. Also, I noticed some of the exam questions would ask about material that had not been in the lesson. When I asked the professor about this she told me to email her the question and correct answer. I did and got no response. This happened on just about every exam. The online e-books are written poorly with multiple typos and even mistakes that alter the correct info that you retain. I feel they could do a lot better with the school considering the money they have rolling in!
First off, before I write this review I have to say one thing and get it off my chest. If you don't think this school is going to be a good fit for you or your lifestyle or just do not like it, then please do not enroll. However, what you do need to do is remain respectful of others who have graduated from here and have reached success with careers. To the naysayers who want to shed bad light on this school, you either really need to find something better to do or move on but remain respectful to those who put their time and effort into their work to come out with a degree and with a curriculum that is identical to any other college curriculum in the nation. I've honestly just have had enough of people talking bad about a school that they "supposedly" went to and have nothing but bad things to say about it and with allegations that are totally untrue and don't make sense. This school is legitimate 1000% research, reference and cross reference and you're going to get the same answer. It is legitimate. Okay, now that I got that off my chest, I'll state my review. I thoroughly enjoyed Ashworth, I graduated with a bachelors and masters in business management and now I am pursuing an associates in finance. As that does sound a little backwards I am doing it this way because I recently moved into the financial branch in my business career and so I decided to take the associates program just to strengthen my skills on it. Books and materials can be a bit slow but they do get here and when they do they are good materials, very thorough on the information they contain. The tests, although they are open book it doesn't mean you necessarily have to do them like that, I liked to challenge myself on what I learned and I usually do good on them and they are graded quickly so no complaints there. Other than that, the graduation ceremony was great, it was exciting and I enjoyed what I learned here. I was fortunate to be offered a job and get into my career during my masters degree so I was very happy about that. Other than that honestly give this college a chance, if you dedicate yourself to it you'll see the results you want. It's not what those jerks are saying it is, it's just folks putting bad light on a school with no reason other than to be mean and spiteful. I was skeptical at first but it ended up being a good choice after all.
I graduated back in 2012 and not only am I absolutely happy in my career but I believe that this school ranks at the very top of the best schools to attend. I graduated with honors, became part of their honor society and began my career in Business all with the biggest smile on my face knowing I was a graduate and was able to be part of this beautiful school. My experience with instructors and staff members was excellent. They are truly kind, respectful and extremely helpful. They believe in you becoming the best you can be and more during your time with the school and beyond. I believed their curriculum to be top of the line with quality education and very informative criteria of what is happening present day and I will warn you now, when it comes to choosing electives there are so many to choose from but they have an amazing selection!!. I love their clean cut, clear perspective and advanced courses as they challenge you to go beyond what you consider your best. I now have a bachelors and masters degree from this school and give 10 stars across! Highly,highly recommend!!
This school has helped me to get to where I am today and I have never been more proud to be a graduate. I work at a great job and I'm pursuing more education with them because my experience was truly phenomenal! I honestly do not understand why people put such negative reviews on this school. It's NOT a scam or is fraudulent or any of the sort. It's legitimate,the U.S. Department of Education qualifies that it is as well as several highly known and reputable accrediting agencies! I don't know what you people are expecting otherwise. Ashworth works hard as it is to meet up to the equivalence of ivy league in terms of their educational curriculum.Do your research, the true proof is all right there. As for the occasional slow orders, relax you're going to get your materials it's happened to me as well, but everything did come through so there is no need to throw a tantrum and talk bad about the school. People need to take their dirty laundry, rumor spreading, smack talking, lying selves elsewhere for that matter and stop trying to twist allegations (that honestly a majority do not even make sense) up. It's independent study for mature students. If you are not mature or think you cannot handle a school of this type than save your time and don't waste others. College is not for everyone and neither it should be. It depends on the character of the person. When you are a student, just like any other school,the program is what you make it! Now that we have that tidbit settled, I am honestly happy I can leave a positive review here. I graduated in 2011 with an associates in finance and it was an amazing experience. It is everything I expected it to be and it got even more better with each semester. The learning is in depth and continuous so it stays in your mind for a long time. The format and true self paced independent study was a plus because I was able to continue my current job and while my employer knew I was in the midst of my associates i gained an immense amount of positive feedback. Once I graduated with honors, I was able to go through with a promotion at my workplace and it's been an incredible journey since then. I enjoyed this school and highly recommend!
I finished my vet tech associates degree in 2013 and have since moved on to my bachelor's degree. I transferred my credits to another college that accepted Ashworth with no problem!! I was happy that I would be able to take the next step! My experience with Ashworth, three words: Best School Ever!! I completed my associates degree with little to no problem. I got all my materials and books and by the time I graduated I honestly felt confident that I could enter my career when the time came with the knowledge during my time with Ashworth. I have absolutely no second thoughts or regrets when it came to enrolling at this school. Best decision I ever made and it has gotten me farther than I could ever imagine. I graduate with my bachelor's next year and I'm excited! I can't wait to see what else awaits for my future. Starting with Ashworth was 100% the right choice.
Being around animals all my life I knew I wanted to be a vet tech later on. Working with the academics of the vet tech program with Ashworth and doing an internship as well as being a vet assistant I am in love! I love spending time with the animals and helping them get well,making sure their health is maintained so that they are happier. The program I am studying is awesome! It's contents is everything I need learn and more it's really great! I hope more animal lovers like me pursue this program as well. If you work with an internship you also learn a lot as you get the hands on experience. I have no complaints or regrets. I love this school and I love what I do!
My mom runs a daycare center and being around the kids inspired me big time to go for my associates in early childhood education. I have always loved kids and just seeing their smiles and laughs everyday is worth it knowing they enjoy coming over to learn and play. I serve as a teachers aide for right now but once I have my degree I absolutely want to push further into education so I can become a qualified teacher. Working with kids as well as working with my studies at Ashworth is awesome because I take what I learn and I work it in to teaching with the kids and the results are the awesome!! One of my shipments however did get delayed in the mail and at one point I thought it was lost but I called the school and they said it is on their way and I was able to see it through the postal tracking so hopefully it will be here the day after tomorrow or sooner. Everything else though is top notch quality! In my own perspective it is the best school I ever attended as it gives me so much hope and aspirations for the future to come with these little ones! If I pursue business with childhood education, the way my dreams are I would love to open a daycare of my own one day or maybe be a children's psychologist so that way they are in good health. Of course that would take some time and some years but I'm honestly up for the challenge.I graduate in 2018 so I still have time to make a decision. This choice in schooling was the best and I'm happy I am able to spend my days with the kids as well as studying in the down time with one of the best schools there is. Seeing them smile, makes me smile because I know sometime along the day, I made a difference and it's a great feeling! To those wanting to pursue childhood education like me, best of luck to you! You won't regret it there are so many possibilities!! :)
