Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (248)
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.
This school is well worth your time, & money. All employees are super nice and professional, very helpful. I would recommend this school to anyone. If your looking for convenience this is the place. All my classes are on line and I can manage classes around my time.
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.
Nice school. Always helpful at all the time. They give you the courage to going to the end of your study. Work with you all the time. Please try Asworth College. Don't give up on your dreams. Yes can do it. It's possible. Is not to late. I will attend the ceremony this year.
I was for the most part happy with my experience at Ashworth College .The last two years was the best. The first two years were not great. Many years ago I had to wait about two or three weeks for a course to be shipped and I couldn't move on until my paper was graded. But presently they have made improvements that are much better than years ago.
I completed an Associated ls Degree and I am completing Bachelors degree at Ashworth College. I have never had a problem here and it had helped advanced my career. The captain of our Police Department has completed his Masters Degree along with several police offices completing there Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice. My husband is completing his Bachelors in Management! Trust me when I say you save so much money and can complete each class at your own pace is so wonderful.
I was attracted to Ashworth online "Basic Accounting" course due to its affordable rate and ability to make monthly payments. The text is good except for a number of typos which led me to open the pandora's box so to speak. The only nice person that I have spoken to is the one who sold me the course. She said everything I want to hear and be inspired. Once I started my studying, I came across multiple issues that I need to call and get help, that's when I start to see their system is so confusing, I got frustrated calling, waiting for a return call, and tried emailing tutors, it has not improved any bit. I received a couple of replies that are blanks, and the rest just didn't address my question instead sent me their nicely scripted correspondence form. Their staff is ill-trained, unfriendly, feisty, rude, and good only with lip service. I will definitely not recommend Ashworth to my friends. I'm one exam to go, and all excited to leave the program not because I'm proud of it.
For me this was the way to earn my degree. I hated driving to classes after working all day. At first I was very concerned about attending Ashworth due to the negative comments I saw on the web about customer service or that its a scam. But I figured I would give it a try as I have started and quit 3 different times. Signing up took a bit that that was expected. I took advantage of the chance to test out of some of the classes in order to save money and time. This took a bit to get going but it did work out great for me. I was able to test out of 7 classes which saved me a lot of time and money in the end. Some of the classes were very easy for me and others took me back to studying once again. I did have to contact the school but it was due to my own issues and there policies. I never once had a negative contact with their customer service. If I felt I was right I would explain why and to my surprise they listened and ended up siding with me. I have not used my degree to move up in my career but I have moved on in my career and I do believe having this degree helped me and gave me one more item that others did not have. You get what you put into Ashworth I believe. If you want A's then you must do the work to get them. If you want to just get by and earn your degree at your own pace and your own environment then that path is there as well. The best part for me is that when I could no longer afford to pay upfront for each term I was able to finance my education with Ashworth with no interest. Granted you have to pay this loan before you receive your degree but you are listed as completed until your loan is paid in full. I wish I would have done this 20 years ago but of course this was not around then.
I began this degree program in 05/2008 and I finished 01/2010 but didn't receive the degree until 05/2014 when I was able to pay it off. That is an awfully long time to wait. It was a little awkward explaining to potential employers that I finished the program but the school was holding the degree but they were mostly understanding. That was my biggest gripe with the school. I'm about to finish my Bachelors program this year and this time I'm going to pay everything up front so they'll send the rest of my class materials and later my BSBA a.s.a.p. The school is best for those who prefer self paced independent study and for those who travel or work a lot. Occasionally there were some books on back order that I had to wait weeks for and some of the people who answer the 800 number seem like they don't care but all things considered it's an adequate school that fit my needs more than a traditional "brick and mortar" college.
