Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2011

Ashford is the school that I received my Bachelor's Degree from. Being a single mother of two young children while working a full-time job can be hard to manage. At Ashford University, I succeeded and obtained a Bachelor's Degree using time management skills. I would recommend this Ashford University and the utilization of time management to anyone who wants to balance work, family, and school. Ashford University is a great school.

Graduation Year: 2020

I would not recommend Ash U. 1st I have made mistakes with docs that are my fault. I take response for that. But when I enrolled my  advisor called me daily, he sent me emails, gave advice, and promised he'd always be available. Fast forward to after my probation period and my money was locked in. He disappeared. I emailed him 4 time the past 3 months, I called him 4 times, no returns at all. I asked someone else why and she said I have a new advisor who after 5 months of school never reached out or told me of her. That fine sort of, but why was the 1st guy promising to help me through my entire 4 years and doesn't even respond to me. They will put you in a column and you will only be a number to them. The problem is if I'm a just a number fine, just don't pretend to always help and respond so quickly until you get me locked in money wise only to be so unreachable. It's been a week and I still haven't heard from my new advisor since leaving her a voice message. I am having troubles and no one cares enough to invest a little extra time to help. I'm sure they will help eventually, but on their time and terms. only wish they showed true colors from the start. SO if you don't ever plan on running into trouble this school might work for you. But if you need transcripts, financial aid docs, or class assistance be weary. I am 1500 miles away from ash U. I would never let anyone go to a school you can only reach by phone again.

Ashford provided good assistance when it came to guidance in what I needed to do to finish my degree. The classes are 5 weeks longs which can be high pace. I did not have any trouble getting assistance from my counselor. However you should make yourself aware of the leave policies because to long of an absence can cause you to have to redo the application process.

Degree: Applied Behavior Analysis

Started in March of 2016 so far everything has been great! I received my financial aid disbursement, everyone has been very helpful. excited about completing all my courses, Applied Behavior Analysis. However, I'm still waiting for my transcripts from the other schools that I attended.

I have been a student for 7 months and still not received my financial aid money. Get the run around every time I call. It's ridiculous. But they sure take your money like lightning. This school really need to step up their game with military students. It's a shame

Degree: Psychology, Other
Graduation Year: 2017

Well first start by saying I love this school! I have had other online classes for my Associates at my local college and another school. The program the other schools used was confusing to navigate and the professors completely changed the way assignments were presented and worked every class so I never knew what to expect. But with Ashford there is uniformity as far as when things are due which you have no idea how much that helps when you have so much else going on in life. I never had to worry about keeping track of when assignments are due because it was the same for every class and I absolutely love that. The Website Layout is great it's also the same for every class navigating it is easy. What is really neat is that one class week on Tuesday to Monday instead of the traditional Monday to Sunday. This really helps me because my kids have a lot going on on the weekends with their extracurricular so trying to rush and do homework on a Sunday isn't feasible but having that extra weeknight at the end of the week is really helpful.

Degree: Psychology, General
Graduation Year: 2014

I see so many people upset with how bad Ashford is, but all of the classes along with the staff were incredibly helpful. And yes, I have debt, but everyone does. I'm working on applying for my MSW and got a great job because of my BA. Graduation on stage in Iowa and seeing them gain accreditation during my time there showed they care. I also got to see the first class of campus students graduate. The only negative I saw (and this happens at every college) is that higher education programs force you do work and actually learn the material. Since it's all online, it really helps you gain a sense of passion and if you do it right, follow through as well. I'm incredibly satisfied and sad at the same time because they don't have an MSW program and my guidance counselor straight up told me, that he didn't want me to spend money on a degree that didn't necessarily set me up for positions I wanted. And for the record, I did 18 months at Ashford and a little under $20,000 in debt, which translates to less than a semester at my second school of choice for my Masters, USC, which can run you upwards of $50,000 a year.

I think that Ashford is a wonderful educational institution. I was hesitate about going back to school and doing it online, but it was just what I needed. The instructors were remarkable, engaging and helped me out tremendously when I was going through some tough moments. I have gained so much knowledge and skill and see it in my everyday life, while interviewing, speaking about research with others and helping others with their papers. Kudos to my Alma Mater.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I attended Ashford University from 2012 Until I graduated with my bachelor's degree in November 2015. Ashford has accelerated courses that are fast pace and require hard work. However, if a student is willing to work hard they will do well and get a quality education. I do feel there are some professors that are a little unfair in their grading; almost seeming to dock my grade so they felt like they were doing their job whilst offering little or no reason for the lowered grade. With that said I believe that most of the professors that I had were fair in their grading and I graduated with a 3.95 GPA overall and a 3.97 in my major which is psychology. I do plan to attend the Master's of Arts in Psychology at Ashford as well. One last thing, Ashford is very military friendly so if you are in the military and looking to go back to school or transfer to another school I highly recommend Ashford University.

Degree: Applied Behavior Analysis
Graduation Year: 2017

I have been attending Ashford for two years. From the moment I spoke with Megan, who was basically my recruiter, I knew Ashford was for me. I am an over thinker. Every decision has to be planned and thought about. I was researching and speaking with 3 other online schools. Ashford blew them all out of the water. The tuition is a bit high. There have been 2 cost increases, but that is life. You get annual raises at your job right... how do you think the extra funds get to you? The teachers have all been great. My adviser and the financial aide department have helped me numerous times. There was a mix up with paper work and instead of sending me a bill for a semester my financial aid specialist called me to tell me which form I had not returned. The classes are challenging. I am a mom of three busy kids and i work full time. I have a 3.96 GPA which I am very proud of. This school is fantastic. Hard work and effort are required. If you are lazy or do not like to write well thought out and researched papers you should not attend any college. Ashford is a great choice for someone who wants to succeed because every staff member at Ashford is there for your success!
