Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2012

I finished my coursework and 4th semester exam in October 2012 and have yet to receive my diploma. I have called the school numerous times between October 2012 and June 2013. Every time I call, the representative says, "I will resubmit a request to have your diploma mailed to you. Please 4-6 weeks". Still, no diploma.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2013

I am completely satisfied with my experience with Ashworth College. I enrolled in Early Childhood Education Certification. They had a very very good class selection to choose from. The instructors and administration replied to EVERY email within a couple of days and did great at answering my questions. I did not use any of the community tools, however, but that was my preference. It was affordable and an enjoyable experience.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2007

The employees are not ethical. There is supposed to be free help for students with their lessons. On several occasions I was hit up for paid tutoring by student services. They really provide you with no help at all. Those who answer phones are rude and untrained. They don't like their jobs and you can tell. If you sign up for a course and cancel 6 days later, they take 40 percent of what you paid. What a rip off. I would never take another class from them. They certainly don't know how to treat their alumni nor do they have any special courtesys for those who are enrolled. I consider Ashworth College a scam artist online institution and do not recommend it.

Degree: Criminal Justice

I enrolled in Ashworth's Criminal Justice Bachelors Program. The course is worthless in my opinion. Before you can study anything about criminal justice you have to go these useless subjects on how to study...Are you kidding me! I know how to study okay! My thoughts are that they have these time wasting courses just to keep you enrolled in activity to get your money. I advise that anyone looking to enroll in a quality accredited degree program, check out Penn Foster College. Good luck out there in your search. In closing, I'm going to close-(-: GoNavy!

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2013

I did a lot of research on this school and what it boils down to is that it is nationally accredited through the U.S. Department of Education. True,if you transfer to another school it is at the schools discretion whether or not to accept transfer credits, as with all school transfers. I have always received great service with Ashworth. My instructors were always helpful with my assignments, and the times I didn't put the work in I should have they were harsh and pushed me to work harder. I work for a government agency and have had no problems with my Ashworth degree. Any employer can look at the US Dept. of Education website and see that Ashworth is on the accredited list. I walked away with my degree without the huge student loans. I feel that I am a better person for attending Ashworth College.

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2013

The academic portion of the program is challenging but the books and lecture notes are very useful. The program is quick and it allows you too move at your own pace. The biggest issue is the student support services. They do not like to return calls or emails with regards to your transcripts. They take avery long time to evaluate and you will end up calling to fight for credits you have already earned at other schools. This is the part that really irritated me the most. There is no one to complain to when they mess up and you are told there is no one to complain to other than who you are speaking to on the phone. I have never heard of such a thing. You are not able to send a email to complain, ther is not a person who is held accountable for questions that wre not answered wrong, and there isnt an address to write to either. This in my mind makes this operation a mom and pops stand with no integrity. Again the academics and speed might make it worth your while but dont expect any help and look foward to answers that go unanswered. If this review was based on student support services and customer relations I would give it zero stars.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2013

Dont complain Ashworth isn't a good school, Ive enrolled and Im almost done with my courses. You get accepted to colleges, don't complain if you don't know what is going on take online classes its easier!

Student support service is fair enough but some support representatives are ghetto they speak as if they never went to school "welcome to ashworffff college how may i assest you"

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2013

I must admit, when I call with an issue these days - they answer the phone in a much quicker time frame than they used to. So that is a major improvement. Don't expect any help along the way, or any real support. But if you are capable of completing assignments on your own, and following basic rules - this program was great. Some of the lessons were a little outdated, and for Computer Technology degrees - that can be an issue.

!!!

Also, I graduated 6 weeks ago - and they have no idea where my diploma is. They also have no way of tracking my diploma and I can't follow up with anybody else. I asked the person on the phone why a company would pay a 3rd party to supply diplomas to their students and then have no way to track whether or not that 3rd party is actually following through with creating and shipping diplomas :) Seems a little strange to me.

Degree: Plumbing Technology

Books are very cheap, no color designs, for any needed studies in plumbing, and the printing is half a$$ed, like for the symbols of piping not all the way there and totally incorrect, they said in the books that the books aren't perfect yes, but how are you supposed to learn and pass your test if they cant even put the right symbols, and then put different information that contradicts each description, 1 star for poorly written text books, well they ain't even textbooks they're on a spiral like a cheap notebook.

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2013

I had primarily only factory work experience until I started working on my Associates in Business Management. Having this on my resume got my foot in the door at a great Financial Services company that would not have looked at me before. I have be extremely sucessful in this company and I am now close to completing my Bachelor's in Business Administration from Ashworth. This degree will open even more doors.

I did not have money when I started taking the courses so having an interest free monthly tuition payment was perfect. When I got my degree, I had no debt because of it. Over the years I have had some issues with books arriving late or courses not recording on the system. When I called I would wait for 20 minutes and then get different answers from different people. It is the worst part of going to Ashworth. I always dread calling. All in all though, it was the best decision that I could have made to get me out of a factory without getting me in debt.
