Ashford University Reviews - Bachelor's in Healthcare Administration
Review of Healthcare Administration Bachelors Degrees
Ashford University is not a good school the advisors don't explain everything to you clearly are your either told one thing and it another I really feel like their unprofessional and not knowledgeable at all. The school is not a god school I repeat don't attend.
Ashford is a great school , all the resources are provided for you to achieve your goals . If you are looking for a easy way out Ashford is not the school for you. You must put forth and effort to achieve your goals . Hard work leads to successful results ! 2 discussion post and assignment due once a week is simple .
Overall attending Ashford University was a blessing. The scholarship opportunities they offered was substantial. The school being smaller with small class sizes and that was one of the many benefits. The instructors were very helpful to provide services for any students to be successful. Overall, being a part of the last class to graduate from the campus was such an amazing experience.
I did learn a lot at Ashford. It was perfect for my schedule and it allowed me to obtain a degree while working two jobs. It definitely requires dedication and the ability to be a self-starter. You do not get a lot of breaks along the way either, but it is nice to only have to concentrate on one class at a time. I would highly recommend this school for those who are looking for a way to get their degree while working or caring for children and for those who are dedicated and willing to put in the work that is required, as it is no small feat to obtain a degree online.
I recently completed my Bachelor's in Health Care Administration. When I first started at Ashford, I was so excited and I was receiving calls every other day from the staff (financial advisors, student advisor, etc) to ensure my experience with the online courses. After about 2, maybe 3 months, I didn't receive any calls and it was hard to contact staff when you had a problem with online classes, financial aid, etc. I had to repeat two classes and now I have to pay out pocket for financial aid being disbursed before my VA benefits had a chance to post. I was so excited that I graduated because this school sucks and I wouldn't recommend that anyone go to this school for any degree. They don't reach out to you to see if you adapting to online courses or any changes that may have occurred that you were unaware of. Some of the instructors grade differently from others, so don't be surprised if you fail a course and after you retake the course you pass with a higher grade. I'm glad that I kept pushing myself because there were many times where I wanted to quit, but since I've graduated, I can honestly say that my Ashford experience sucked!!!!!! Do yourself a favor and enroll with another school. (Some people have different experiences than others, but if you are just starting at Ashford, it will be good for a few months, but after that, look forward to the lack of professionalism when it comes to any problems you may have).
I have enjoyed my time at Ashford. The reps were always helpful and courteous when I called the school regarding any concerns that I may have had. Online schooling has been very convenient being that I am very busy throughout the week in my personal life. One concern would be the extravagant papers that we had to write. Writing 10 -12 pages on a topic is a bit much and makes me feel like I'm repeating myself. Other than that, the experience was great!
Overall I was happy with my experience. I didn't like the fact that I completed the requirements but lacked just a few credits therefore I had to "find" one more class to take. The way the courses are set allows you to work, be a parent or volunteers and still have time for school. You MUST be very disciplined and committed to achieve in order to be successful. Reading and originality are a must! I like that you can offer a review of your instructor because some of them need help understanding the role they play in your online learning process. Best of luck to you.
I was expected to graduate in April 2016, now the school has me taking two classes that I just previously took due to "plagiarism". I am not expected to graduate in June 2016. Even though I'm so close to my graduation date, I'm tired of the higher expectations when it comes to assignments. I'm currently in a course where I received a 97 on my Week 2 Assignment and it gave me a 53% due to the paper being 57% of originality. The instructions for the assignment doesn't say anything about the paper being original, so I took it as doing the paper and doing what was asked. I've had some great moments at this school, but the closer I get to my EGD (expected graduation date), the more problems I have out of them saying something about my assignments.
Ashford university is a great school for people who like structure but need flexibility. Most of the classes are designed where the due dates are the same(Tues/Thurs) so you can get into a rhythm. You will read a lot because the aren't any "video lectures" or teleconferencing. For me that was a good thing. They even have apps for your class and books so you can read and/or complete assignments any where in the world. If you're a busy, self-motivated adult, this is the school for you.
First off this is not a bad school and it is accredited. I have had such a wonderful experience at the school. I just graduate with my bachelors in healthcare administration and I am pleased say that I graduated with a 3.68. School is what you make it. And if I every had needed anything I was always taken care of. So yes I would recommend this school to anyone. I am for anyone who didn't know they have a beautiful campus.
