Before enrolling I Specifically asked if we get a hard cover book as well and I was told yes. Online the program tuition states with the fee that you receive a hardcover book and so does it state it when you complete lesson 2. Apparently you don't. They told me after I paid my tuition and already started the program. Once you reach lesson 4, it only gives you an overview of what you are going to learn, and tells you (to read the chapters in your hardcover). I had to spend additional money buying a hardcover book as lesson 4 exam questions are NOT covered in the lesson as they should be. If I would have known this, I would had gone with another school that offers the actual book for the price your paying.
This is not a school. It's a non regionally accredited money funnel. Ashworth just wants to take your money. The materials are extremely outdated. Be warned by the reviews, I wish I did. I withdrew after I was asked for additional money for an extension. They are still illegally removing money from my bank account. My contact magical went up after I withdrew. Everything about this place should scream red flag.
I absolutely loved and enjoyed my time at Ashworth College. Any questions I had was answered by my instructors via email and phone calls. Academic advising was also a major help. Thank you to all the staff members there who really took time to answer my questions. I got my Bachelors in psychology and am now Enrolled at Capella University for my Masters. ALL my credits transferred. I wish they had a Masters program in what Im pursuing.
After completing my program I discovered that the college was not accredited by the appropriate governing body and that my certificate was USELESS. I researched the Medical Billing and Coding Certificate. The accreditation that they have for that program is very misleading as it is only accepted in a handful of states. FYI, North Carolina is not one of them. They need the AAPC accreditation for most states and that is not what they have. Offering programs for certificates that they are barely or not at all accredited for and being intentionally vague about that is criminal and the prime characteristic of a for profit college that does not care about your education or finances.
I love this program!! I've just graduated in Management with a 3.6 GPA.Working overseas this was perfect for me because I could not be in the states to attend a college .I highly recommend this college to anyone who is looking for an online degree.The only wish I have is to add a Bachelor Program in Information Technology , I am sure then they will have more people interested in their college.
Dont waste your money! Theyre very unprofessional and they time period to respond to you about the courses is not there. They will also lie about the emails you send asking for help. I am. Very disappointed. Now my self esteem has worsen thanks to AW
This was once a great program. But over the years, it's fallen apart. They've switched entirely to ebooks, but they charge the same tuition. Have a grade dispute? You'll either get one of two things: No response at all, or a response that is either ridiculous or poorly reasoned. Take for instance one situation where an exam asked a question that was not found anywhere in the study material. The reviewer actually acknowledged that the question was not found in the materials that we have to study, but that it should be "obvious" what the answer is. Nope, sorry, but when the test asks a question about a very specific scientific study that was never covered in the materials, it's not "obvious", the question is improper and shouldn't be on the exam. You don't test students on things they weren't taught. Period, end of story. Don't get me started on how papers are graded. The Professors they hire tend to have impressive credentials, but I question the GPAs they achieved to get those degrees because almost every one of them seems to have very wrong ideas about APA format and none of it is consistent as the rules change with each Professor. The school also seems to think that a rubric alone is sufficient to grade papers when anyone who has at least graduated from junior high school knows that in order for grading to be effective there must be specifics. If you tell a student "You have issues with punctuation" but you then fail to show where those issues are exactly in the paper, clearly the student cannot correct them. The fact that such a basic understanding has to be explained to them is maddening and they do not understand the problem at all. This may be the only school on earth where you don't actually get to see your graded papers, you simply get back generalizations of issues, and many times even those aren't correct. I would say, if you don't give a damn about your grades or improving on papers you've written since the feedback is so laughably poor, then Ashworth College will work fine for you. You will learn plenty from the courses as the course structures are as good as can be for an independent study program. But from the Professors and administrators you will learn absolutely nothing other than the fact that they either operate on apathy or ignorance or both.
Some of the customer service reps arent knowledgeable. I wish they were accredited in which all schools would except their transcripts but maybe on the future. But, I like the fact u can do it at your own pace . I work a lot and extremely convenient
I personally think Ashworth College is a great place to pursue higher education. I think it allows students to work at thier own pace; specifically those who are managing various responsiblities such as school, work and home. You must definitely put in the work to reflect good grades.
At first I loved this college and the courses, but then my first actual class that required a textbook they say its on backorder and has no clue when I will receive it or when it will even be shipped out but sends me an email stating that I need to hurry and do a lesson in the course. This school is absolutely ridiculous. BEWARE BEWARE!!!
