Good school. When I started most of the courses were via. "snail mail" but the school made a transition into the digital age. It is quickly becoming a major player in education and without a doubt was a forerunner of 21st century distance education. Go Ashworth!
I attended this school for about 4 months in 2015 to obtain an auto cad certification. Within the 4 months, the material provided was clear and well written. The tests did challenge me, as well as the class work. I would recommend this school on a certificate level. The instructor that i had did help when i needed. Usually within a day if not before, i had a response. Again i would recommend.
This school is legit. Everyone talking a out transfer credits.... why bother when you don't need to? Regionally Accredited schools do one thing and one thing only, CHARGE you more. Ashworth does not. You can get an Associates, Bachelors and Masters here. If you want to transfer to a regionally accredited school, you can transfer to American Public/Military University and get the rest of your degree from them. They are also reasonably priced. Don't let people scare you. They are just afraid to hustle. The quality of the material from this school is right in the middle. It isn't Harvard, but it isn't high school level either. It is challenging and requires work. I LOVE how the text books are professional and used by the same Regional schools. They cut through the BS and let you read about the main points quickly, instead of going through a ton of material and shit you don't actually need. I have learned so much from my classes and it truly is at your own pace.
The school is nationally accredited not regionally. It will not transfer to your state schools. It transfers to most nationally accredited schools not regionally accredited schools (there are some exceptions, but few). Get over the name, it is not going to impress anyone. Some jobs require a regionally accredited degree, Ashworth does not apply and will not work for you. Cost is the only reason I chose Ashworth, the books are included and it really is self-paced. The tech errors or delays are minimal and the same I experienced when attending a state school. The customer service is hit and miss, some people are nicer than others, again, the same as I experienced in a state school. Some teachers barely read my papers and other's gave me great insight on how to improve my structure or focus on my papers. If you feel embarrassed about getting an education from this school then don't apply. Please do not discourage those that are looking to improve their prospects. It is accurate to inform people that a nationally accredited degree is limited on transferability as opposed to a regionally accredited degree. You may not transfer to NYU, Berkely, Boston State, community college etc. w/ credits from Ashworth This degree helped me in my career and in my personal/professional growth as a marketing executive. I'm now considering Ashworth for my Master's degree. This decision is due to cost mostly but the flexibility and self-pace really helped me during busy times at the office. It is helpful when you cannot take a week or two off of school and you have travel or deadlines. May you find success on your journey to higher education.
ASHWORTH IS ONE OF THE BEST. ITS VERY AFFORDABLE BUT I HAD NO ISSUES WITH THE STAFF OR GETTING ANY OF MY BOOKS ON TIME OR WHAT NOT. ITS AN AMAZING SCHOOL, I LOVED IT. ALONG WITH ONLINE SCHOOLING, IT TAKES COMMITMENT AND NOT MAY HAVE THAT. ONLINE SCHOOL IS VERY HARD, AND ASHWORTH HAD MADE MY EXPERIENCE WORTH WHILE. CURRENTLY MY SON IS A SENIOR AT JAMES MADISON HIGH, AND ITS THE BEST!!! I WOULD RECOMMEND ASHWORTH.
I am from the Caribbean island St.Vncen. t I did the gourmet cooking and catering course and not only did I learned a lot I also got employment on ships did private parties weddings etc ..I now am a owner of Banners Bar and Grill in Chateaubelair St. Vincent..Thanks to Ashworth..
This College has been like a God send to me. I do not have enough words to describe how wonderful this College has been to me. I've learned so much over the years and I do not have any complaints. I ended up getting my High School Diploma through James Madison High School and went on to get an AS in Early Childhood Education and an AS in Psychology. I also have a Diploma in Nutrition, Diet and Health Sciences. I'm now working on getting my Diploma as a Home Health Aide. I'm sure that I'll continue my Education through Ashworth. Next, I'm thinking about Social Services Assistant in Substance Abuse. Either that, or a Physical Therapy Aide. I'm a career student and enjoy learning and I will continue with this College. I'm also interested in other courses through here as well and I've had no problems in finding employment.
Well, the first month went swimmingly. Got my books in a timely fashion and finished the first section. Now? It's been almost a month since I completed the first assignments and can't continue because my material is continuously delayed. I'm about ready to call and see if I can't just cancel because they keep taking my money every month yet no books. It's getting old.
After reading so many bad reviews I felt that I needed to set the record straight. I received my AS in Criminal Justice in 2011, the tuition iwas affordable and the books and materials where just as good as the ones from a brick and mortar school. Reading is what you get from it, if I wanted more in depth info on a subject a book talked superficially about I would just google it or go to the library. Hello! Seriously you got to do the work! It's truth that not all schools accept transfers but some will and good ones too. Bellevue University in Nebraska accepted all credits and 2 years later I had my bachelors. I never had problems with customer support, probably because I didn't call a lot , but when I did I got me questions answered, no problem.
I have read some pretty bad reviews on here and I feel that people are entirely misinformed about nationally(NA) and regionally accredited(RA) schools and transferring credits. Colleges/University's do not have a "one size fits all" rule that applies to every single person. It is a "general" saying that NA credits won't transfer to RA schools, this is not a lie, however, it is entirely based on a case by case basis. I have my Associate degree from a NA college and I went on to get my bachelors from CSU which is RA and they were going to accept 30 credits. If you have a NA degree you are not excempt from going to a RA college and getting credits transferred. Yes, you are going to find that some RA schools will not accept NA degrees, but there are a lot that will. For instance, Capella's masters degree requirements are that you have a bachelors "from an accredited school whose accrediting agency is recognized by the Department of Education". NA is recognized by th Dept of Education. It really just depends on your case, what you already have your degree in, and what you are trying to pursue at their college. It also helps to write an essay to the college along with your application that specifies what you learned at your previous school and why you should be considered for enrollment if you have NA credits you want transferred to a RA school. And make sure you are kissing major butt with your admissions rep because it is ultimately up to them if you are accepted and word of mouth goes along way when they credit evaluation team is evaluating your credits. Ashworth college is a great school and there are plenty of colleges that will accept your degree/credits from them.
