Very good school for someone who is working full time. They work with your needs both financially and educationally. My only complaint would be there are not too many bachelor degree options such as Human Resource management but this can be overlooked.
Money hungry, does not care about students. They are only in it for the money, they could care less what it takes to get it. They are very pushy and unprofessional. They only tell you what seems to be benefits of attending the school but fail to mention about the unreasonable costs to attend such courses. Rip off!
I would recommend to everyone to enroll with Ashworth. I discovered that prestigious college such as SUNY ESC was very bad college for me and Ashworth much better, so I transfererd my credits to Ashworth. Teleconferencing, tutoring, assistance, were very educative and everything is very good organized. In addition, I had the experience with Penn Foster as well and it's not better than Ashworth. Penn has very strict English instructors, and SUNY is the opposite- you pass courses very easily and therefore you're not learning. They only want your money! On the other hand, Penn Foster, wants your money, poor tutoring, and bad grading in order that you won't get hired! They can't put all graduates to work, so the lie has to continue. Strongly recommend ASHWORTH COLLEGE! !!!!
This program worked well for me. It allowed me to enter the corporate workforce and I am now running my own successful business. Like most things, it is what you make it.
When I need to call to open classes, exams or anything. I always experience rude, horrible customer service. Plus, they update the system almost every night and on weekends. Its hard for people who work to find time to complete exams. If you are looking for an online college. Don't make the same mistake, I made.
If you seriously care about your education please do not go here. It is not regionally accredited which means if you want to transfer to another or better school, they won't take your credits. Customer service is condescending and rude, completely unhelpful, and the instructors are not educated enough. The material used is years out of date, citing things from 10 years ago. I am trying to transfer to another school now and I'm extremely limited. After my first semester, I'm positive this school is useless and not even worth going there free.
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:-((((
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!
This school is not for everyone. You must be a self motivator, and able to concentrate and focus without someone pushing you. (As with all distance learning) I have worked in the healthcare industry for 15 years and wanted to further my education. I work fulltime, have 2 children and am pregnant, so traditional college was not an option for me. For me this program was perfect. I had the flexibility to take classes at my availability, the school accepted all of my transfer credits, and due to life experience I was able to relate to most of the course material. I am continuing my education with this school on to my bachelors degree. I love this school.
IF YOU ARE MILITARY, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT GO THROUGH ASHWORTH COLLEGE AS A CORRESPONDENT COURSE. YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR ENROLLMENT VERIFICATION SENT IN A TIMELY MANNER TO THE V.A. TO RECEIVE REIMBURSEMENT PAYMENTS. THIS WAS THE ONLY ISSUE I HAD WITH ASHWORTH COLLEGE AND THEIR MILITARY DIVISION. OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS GOOD.
