Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2015

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.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2013

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.

Degree: CAD/CADD Drafting and/or Design Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 0000

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.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

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.

Degree: Private Investigator
Graduation Year: 2014

I was relucant about signing up. Who wants all the stress night classes and the cost from traditional college. Then I discovered the Ashworth programs. Would definintely recommend Ashworth College, especially, for mid-aged person. I have been able to rebuild confidence in myself and education for my career. You must self disciplined and okay with figuring things out for yourself. I did complete the online Private Investigator Program with Honors, and will be soon joining Delta Epsilon Tau. I immediately started working on my master's degree at Ashworth. The payment plan is awesome.

Degree: Education, Other
Graduation Year: 2014

Ashworth College for me was truly college on my terms. It allowed me to work full time, attend to the needs of my family, and improve my educational learning at the same time. I would highly recommend it! The classes were affordable and the staff worked with me when needed to resolve any educational concerns. The tutoring department was very helpful as well. It was a good investment. I'm currently enrolled in my second degree program to obtain my BS in Early Childhood Education. Moving on toward greater heights! Thanks Ashworth College

Degree: Child Development
Graduation Year: 2014

I began with Ashworth several years ago, and finally graduated recently with a 4.0,with an applied science degree in Psych. Some of these courses are self paced, which is great for us older peeps....because life got in the way several times while I was working so hard on trying to obtain my degree. I just kept plugging away. The courses themselves were VERY challenging and fun. The books arrived in a timely manner....customer service was adequate. They do have tutors which will call you and help you if you have any issues or problems understanding your courses. The monthly payment was a great addition and I have already paid off my loan to them. What you have to remember is this is an on line course, which is not as involved as actually being on a campus somewhere. But the courses seem adequate and are great for people who just don't have time for a college campus or a college life. Ashworth is an accredited school, however, transferring courses should be really looked into before signing any papers with this school. They make this quite clear in their paperwork, but I noticed many complaints from people who signed and just did not do their homework and felt that they should be able to transfer previous courses or something of that nature. Also, you have to remember, this is not Harvard; but the classes like I said, are very challenging, and fun to learn. I have nothing negative to say about Ashworth and have appreciated that opportunity to finally get my degree! This is something that I just wanted to do for myself! I think you will enjoy the school so be prepared to apply yourself

Degree: Criminal Justice/Safety Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Ashworth College allowed me to reach my goals in my career . I was not that guy who was going to finish college, that was until I met Ashworth College. Ashworth college gives students the flexibility to finish school at your own pace. The tuition is very affordable. The school is nationally accredited which means it is accredited by the board of education. I currently work as a Detective in NYC. I am a law enforcement officer because of schools like Ashworth college. I started with pennfoster college became a cop and finished with ashworth college and received my associates. I will pursue my bachelors with Ashworth in the near future.
