Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (220)
Graduating in 2014, I had the best time with Ashworth. I ended up getting right into a CJ career right after graduation and I have been there ever since. I am proud to say I make 4x more money what I do now than before. Getting into your chosen career is absolutely possible with this school its just a matter of achieving your goals and marketing yourself for the job. The materials I received were fresh and up to date, courses were challenging yet informative and completion was a success! Very happy I chose to be part of this school I wouldn't have had it any other way. This school in particular is filled with high quality education and that is the most important part. It was affordable and in my opinion its first class education. I graduated and am now happily working in my career which was my goal to be part of Criminal Justice. Now that I am, I have no complaints nor regrets. I dedicated myself to my education and I made it happen.
Tech support is good and they respond quickly. The website goes down for maintenance every once in awhile as they update classes and materials. All my books and materials are automatically sent with no need to download additional materials. Always a quick response to questions from professors. Tuition is reasonable, and never had any issues with making payments. The site is easy to navigate and the classes are excellent.
Ashworth college has problems with their website, as in you will be locked out of their website FOR ENTIRE DAYS. In the class I am studying after you have printed course materials, you cannot get new materials without passing the test, which you cannot do with the site down . They have no tech support either. Most people taking an online course are going to focus on it their day off, so if the site wont work, and there is no tech support, you simply lose a week in your studies and miss your deadlines. If you go on the forums for help it states that they know there is problems and don't contact tech support. No actual assistance. if you are in a hurry or are limited in which times you can study, choose another school.
My experience with Ashworth College was wonderful. I was able to achieve my goals and complete my degree on my free time. The curriculum for degree program was excellent. The courses were challenging as well as rewarding. All of Ashworth's information was clear and concise. With an understanding, you cannot mistake this. The cost of your degree is reasonable and will not leave you in debt for years to come. Research will show that Ashworth's curriculum is competitive with that of other great online colleges.
I was excited to embark on a journey to further my education. I called Ashworth College and spoke with an admissions officer to discuss enrollment. I was told they were an "accredited college. I decided because I had a busy life with two jobs, that online courses were the best option for me, so I enrolled. The lady I spoke with ensured me that the credits would be transferable to other colleges in my area. I began with lesson one and two and completed both lessons of Intro to Business. By that time, I wanted to call my schools here in Mobile, AL, to see if the credits would transfer from Ashworth so that I could obtain my Bachelors in Criminal Justice locally. Guess what!!!?? University of South Alabama and Bishop State Community college does not even recognize Ashworth as a college. Now if a SCHOOL don't recognize another SCHOOL then would a company recognize Ashworth, or your degree obtain from Ashworth? NO, they would not. These people lied to me, took my money and now they want me to pay $343.50 to drop out, due to their fraudulent information. That is BS!!!! I will NOT pay a dime! It hasn't even been two weeks since I signed up and they want me to pay to drop the course because they were dishonest? If anything they can have their dang book (1) back and pay me my $29.00 signup fee that they stole from me. DO NOT ENROLL AT ASHWORTH! They are not ACCREDITED!!! THEY ARE LIARS!!! THEY HAVE DISHONEST PEOPLE WORKING FOR THEM WHO TELL YOU SOME BELIEVABLE BS STORIES JUST TO GET ANOTHER ENROLLEE ON THEIR BOOKS! MY ATTORNEY WILL BE IN TOUCH!!!
Hi everyone, I enrolled back in 2012 and earned my associates degree in Finance, at the time I worked at a consulting firm so earning a degree gave me some great leverage in the field. I was fresh out of high school at the time so earning my degree through this school while being able to work was great! I felt like I was able to have more opportunities because of this and it was a positive benefit. I graduated in 2014 and since then I am now on my second year of my bachelor's degree program with a concentration in marketing. From associates degree to now a lot has happened in the best way possible, I was promoted at the consulting firm, I can happily support my wife and two daughters and I'm able to balance family,work and school. At times it wasn't easy but I know it was definitely worth it. I make good money and am happy with where I am in my life. I believe this was the best idea enrolling into this school because it was very fulfilling. I personally do recommend this school to those who like to learn, want to advance themselves, etc. They know how to accommodate students and provide a great quality of education no matter what your background may be and to me that's important.

I believe the school means well to some level. However, I am not so sure about student services aka administration. They have a similar education and advertisement platform as Penn Foster College. I was transferring credits to this school and they will not do an evaluation of what credits will transfer. You have to enrolled first and then you will know. Be very vigilant about this practice (Penn Foster does the same thing). Anyway, I enrolled and finish the first semester with no issue, but I decided that I wanted to study elsewhere, which I did. Fast forward to the present, I was looking for a place to finish my masters, so I did take a look at them again and called them. When talking to a representative (admission counselor) I was told that my status as student was still active and that I have a debt with the College for a second semester. Two things I am sure, I paid the first semester in full and never enrolled or signed an enrollment agreement again for subsequently semester, no proof provided upon request. So how that is possible after all this years they have me as an active student when I discontinue my studies with them? Second, that I cannot enrolled in a different program and that I still owe them money? It is beyond me. Not the best college out there but certainly not the worst (ITT for example is really bad). If you want an education (trust me you will get one here) that will not put you in debt, Ashworth may be a good possibility to considered. I am willing to given them a try if they can resolve this problems with their administration and admission policies (at the Master degree level that is).
I served as a camp counselor last year at a local camp for youth ranging in ages 8-14. I loved working with them and being a mentor/counselor during the duration of their camp experience. I gave this a try to gain experience in counseling to see if I would enjoy possibly going into psychology so while doing internships early in my future career, I enrolled into the associates degree and it has been excellent. The enrollment was easy and the staff was very nice and took time to answer any questions I had. I finished in 2015, graduated and am now working on my bachelors. Once i finished with this college and my associates degree,I was able to find work as a school guidance counselor at a local middle school. Hopefully once I complete my bachelor's I will be able to go farther. In the meantime I am very happy working in the school system as a guidance counselor and working with adolescents. Everyone's experience is different with schools,however I am happy that mine worked out successfully and was worth the time and effort! I would truly recommend based on the quality of education, the thoroughly developed courses and affordability. Scale of one to ten, ten. I have had no problems nor regrets. Just happiness. :)
I found Ashworth College and thought this was the great college, but I learned quickly that they are not! They are not trustworthy and they're dishonest with their students.I believe they're only in it for the money, they must get a bonus for each student that they enroll. They don;t care about he students they just want their money every month! I first enrolled in the Associates degree program for Healthcare Administration and was very happy with my decision. I even found out that the 4th semester will be free! Months later as I was in the program, I happened to look on their website and saw that they had a new program which was Healthcare management in the Bachelor's degree. I notice that the first four semesters were the exact same as the associates degree in healthcare administration that I was enrolled in, so I knew it would be no problem to transfer all my credits to the BA program in healthcare management. I was excited and called to enroll in that Bachelors program that same day, the lady was so quick to enroll me over the phone, and I was in the program in less than 5minutes! I didn't know later on I was scammed. The next day I called to ask if I would still receive my associates in healthcare administration once I pay off the four semesters since they are identical to the 4 semesters of my Bachelor's degree in Healthcare management. I was told that I will not receive my associates degree in healthcare administration even though the 4 semesters of the the healthcare administration is exactly the same as the healthcare management in the bachelor's degree program! I called them the next day to let them know that I would like to cancel and go back to the associates program, and once I finish my associates, I will go for my BA in healthcare management so I could earn two degrees instead of one degree, it makes sense right? All of my credits will go straight into the BA program if I were to remain in the healthcare adminstration degree, but they tell me I can't and that I can not ''down grade" and I have to stay in the Bachelors degree program in Healthcare Management! I wish I would have known this before I enrolled in the BA program!! So basically if a person enrolls in the associates degree program in healthcare administration and graduate, they can transfer all of their credits from their associates degree and enroll in the Bachelors degree in Healthcare management and finish that, and have TWO DEGREES instead of ONE which I will only have when I finish the program!!! This is not right, and unjust! They could of at least inform me all of this before being so quick to enroll me in the BA degree!! If I would have known this enrolled in the BA and just finish the associates and then transfer to a BA. I wouldn't have a problem with this school if they were to let me get my Associates degree in healthcare administration once all four semesters are paid and let me get my Bachelors in healthcare management after finishing the rest of the semesters which would be 4 left afterwards and fully paid. I was going to get my MBA from Ashworth, but I will not be going after I finish my BA degree after they pulled this mess on me, and I will not recommend this school to none of my friends nor family and anyone who mention this school I will tell them do not attend the school. The best thing to do is just go to your local regionally accredited college. I'm attending my local regionally accredited college now for my associates, and I am pretty sure if I were to switch to the bachelors program, they would not be telling me no I can't, because your "down grading!" Or saying that I can't receive my associates and bachelors degree. What kind of college does that!? And I even ask them if I finish my BA could I get my associates in healthcare administration and they told me NO! They are ridiculous! I see why people say this is not a real college and that this college is a joke! Please go else where, and save your money, because they do not accept financial aid, and you will not receive your degree until your debt is paid in full! I was going to attend the graduation, but decided not to, because this school really disappointed me.I was all for this school despite it being nationally accredited, long waits for papers to be graded, test have more than one answer that is correct or none, I can go on, but I have no choice but to stay with this school, because I am paying all this money out of my pockets and I want to at least finish my degree instead of throwing my money down the drain!
Ashworth College was AMAZING. As a single mom of two boys, I was able to work full time and finish my degree. Ashworth's classes were challenging at times but really kept me thinking and never left me bored. I was able to land a great job in a local hospital making more then I imagined I would upon recently graduating. It took me 5 years to totally finish my degree but worked at my own pace. You can finish your degree much quicker if you want. Every professor I had in my studies helped me by answering various questions and even sending me more material and articles on the topics I was confused about. The advisors and tutors are extremely helpful and always there when you need them. There is no reason for you to not do well in this school. The tuition is a great plus! I will be attending here again to achieve my MBA.
