Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

I had a great experience at Ashford University. I was able to go online which was so helpful. At the time I had a toddler and two teens therefore, being able to attend school online was a life saver. I was a real estate agent and when the market crashed I went back to school. My husband and I lost three homes, so I decided I needed to go back to school in 2009 to get another profession. I received my BA in psychology from Ashford University in 2013. It was a wonderful experience. It helped me to understand people and life so much more. I grew up in a domestic violent home so all the classes in psychology really helped me understand why things happen and how it affects people. Studying famous psychologist such as Freud, Albert Bandra, Jean Piaget, Ivan Palov, Erik Erickson, Carl Jung, Carl Rogers, and BF Skinner was amazing. BF Skinner created the skinner box using operant conditioning which influenced Behaviorism and led to Ivar Lovaas and Robert Koegel creating Applied Behavior Analysis. I will be taking ABA at Arizona State University. Psychology is a great degree to get, because it applies to so many different aspects. I went back to school after finishing my BA and earned my masters degree in special education. Psychology and special education go great to study together. It was perfect that I studied psychology prior, because it really helped me grasp a lot of the concepts in special education.

I was enrolled at Ashford about 3 years ago. I enjoyed my experience up until the day I had to have emergency surgery. They decided to drop me from my class and then proceeded to charge me about $2000, to reenroll me in it without my permission. I had a hard time at this point with pain medication and always being tired. I had three kids on top of school and managed to get all b's in my classes up to this point. Now that i am ready to reenter school and have found one that will work for me they have decided to hold onto my transcript and make it so that i can not used the credits i earned from them. I never asked to be dropped then re-enrolled. and when i talked to them about it they acted like they understood. They are a rip off and i am working to get their accreditation taken away from them.

Like every university in the US they are focused on making money. I would like to address the QUALITY of classes and teacher. Very strict on plagiarism, classes are tough and teachers are very demanding. It's a lot of work, requiring you to always work on material, manageable unless you reach the last year, when you are mentally exhausted. teachers are very quick in answering your demands, questions, etc, and the office staff is decently reachable. I am thinking to start my master degree at Ashford.

DO NOT GO TO ASHFORD! Not only will you be accepted and start classes but soon after you will be required to prove 19-20 documents proving who you are and then when they dont feel you sent them in on time you will be pulled from any completed classes you may have gotten through, your credits erased and you have to start all over again! This school is a joke! now im stuck in it! I filed my fafsa again this yer and have to go through another 19-20 documents to prove to the college who i am! and now im 18 credits in and at risk of having it all erased! and having to pay for it at my own expense. its a rip off please save yourself the time and hassle. i go to school online bc i am disabled and cant make it out of the house and now have to try and find a way to have papers notarized and sent in when i am house bound and all the staff does is say oh well... its a waste dont bother go to another school one that isnt getting sued left and right because im completely out of luck now!

This college charged me for classes I was not enrolled in and they also changed my grade for classes I took. I wish that I had printed my information instead of trusting this school. My problem now is that I have a 10,000. dollar loan that this school has turned in and is on my credit. They are also taking my income tax for this loan that I should not have to owe. If I would have known about the lawsuit that was taking place I would have added my name to the list. So with all of this said I believe if they would clear my loan and dismiss it I would remove all of my comments that are negative against this college.

Ashford University is a great school. I went there for 4 1/2 years and received a dual degree in Psychology and Early childhood development. If I could do it all over again, I would because this was a great achievement for me. I would tell others about this school. Especially if they have a family to take care of. It is perfect, because you can work around your families schedule. Meaning, you can choose day or night to do your homework and even interact with your instructor as well as your classmates.

I absolutely loved going to Ashford! Another military wife introduced me to Ashford. It was by far the best and most adaptive school for military life that I have ever seen. I had moved several times while my husband was active duty and was constantly losing credits that would not transfer to other schools. Ashford accepted ALL of my previous credits. They honored the military sacrifices by giving me all of my books for ALL of my classes for free. Wow, what a tremendous savings that was! My online classes were only 5 weeks long and it aloud me to make up lost time from following my husband all over the world! Mini papers were usually due during week 3 with the final longer papers being due during week 5. The consistent format for every class aloud me to plan my family activities around that so I didn't have to feel like I was sacrificing my valuable family time. The instructors were very helpful and made a genuine effort to ensure you understood the course work. My only regret is that Ashford did not have the degree program that I wanted to pursue for my Masters. Otherwise, I would have happily continued on with Ashford. I will forever be grateful to the other military wife that introduced me to Ashford. One of the hardest things about being a military spouse is that you often sacrifice your personal goals to keep the family stable as your spouse focuses on the mission. Ashford allowed me to reach my goal of a Bachelor's degree. Finally, instead of feeling like I was sacrificing, I felt a great sense of accomplishment! I could have given up but Ashford helped with everything from enrollment, helping find cheaper tuition possibilities, setting up my classes, to assisting with the graduation process. They also sent a beautifully framed diploma rather than just the diploma itself. If you are considering Ashford, don't hesitate! Good luck on accomplishing your own goal! Hoorah!

I'm almost fifty and I returned to school to receive my bachelor's in psychology with the intention of going to grad school at another university. They don't have a program designed for MFTs. Even though I'm older and have a learning disability (encoding, decoding, memory) I've maintained almost straight A's. The instructors all have PhD.s and most of them are pretty helpful. Bare in mind their help is very limited because they are teaching online and running who knows how many courses at a time. I only have two more classes until I graduate. I found it challenging but doable. If you're a self starter and willing to apply yourself, you will earn your degree. The school is quite expensive and I would do my first two years through a community college if possible. They will transfer 60 to 90 units for the bachelor's program depending on your courses and the criteria of the state requirements you have. I'm in California, so out of 134 previous units only 60 transferred (FYI) In my opinion I've obtained a pretty good education and enjoyed the challenge seventy five percent of the time. Ashford has very low math requirements for their bachelor's in arts programs. This was a deal breaker for me since I absolutely cannot do higher levels of math. There is a statistics course, but I survived it with an A minus. Be mindful that Ashford University is a private school and a business. My only complaints were that I was kind of mislead by the recruiter regarding my units and the financial department took almost a year to get my scholarship working right. What they say on the phone is not set in stone. Get everything confirmed by email. Ask as many questions as you can. Make a well informed decision. All things said, I've had a great overall experience at Ashford.

I found the classes challenging, the instructors helpful, and my fellow students engaging. Ashford prepared me to continue on to a State University graduate school, where I became a licensed social worker. I highly recommend Ashford university. .
