"Absolutely the worst experience trying to get faculty to support the student. Condensending attitude and unwilling to problem solve or give guidance. Intructions for online courses are inadequate and you are sent to multiple websites to find course materials. Save your money and app.y to a school with integrity."

"If I could they would get a zero from me. They do not answer emails in a timely manner and sometimes not at all. They have no tutors for bookeeping. When I made an appointment to speak to a tutor, the guy says he is a tutor but he isn't going to help me. I had to make one of their tickets that they never answer. Do not waste your time or money. They do not care. They cant even direct you to a link or video for you to look at."

"My program was a bunch of PowerPoint and PDF files you are supposed to read through and take a test/submit an assignment at the end. This. IS NOT a standard interactive online program. You get what you pay for. Don’t expect to get a quality bookkeeper certificate for $700 when other schools are charging $8-$15,000 for a much similar program. Shop programs before wasting $1 on this garbage. I read through the first class slides, I never took one test or one assignment. I was only able to get less than a 50% refund. Look at a real program through Purdue Global or Bryant Collegr depending on your budget."

"I potentially recommend attending this College, if you are determined to study on your own independently. I graduated with honors after five years in Psychology, and attending this College was a wise decision. I am currently pursuing a Masters in Psychology at a regionally accepting university Ashworth College credits."

"This school is the worst. They just want your money. The teacher and the online studies is super fake. Horrible customer service and are fast to put you in collection to get your money. If you can try to avoid this school never had a bad experience with a school. Bad decisions I ever made. Lesson learn. Make sure it doesn't happen to anyone else."

"The online program for medical billing and coding it's not good and I would not recommend it to anybody. The courses are very vague and do not have much to do with the medical billing and coding. It's more geared to being just an office assistant or receptionist."

I do not have words to say how happy I am for having chosen this College! I would recommend to people who dream about having a degree and do not have a lot of free time and also do not have a lot of money to pay expensive schools."

"This is going to detail my experience and personal results relative to Ashworth College... Over the past 10 years, I enrolled in and attended several colleges (both online and in person). I received my associate's finally after about 7-8 years! The timing just was never right for me to finish honestly. I was just do glad to have earned an associate's back in 2020, but even so, I still felt the need to attain my bachelor's - coming from my families, college was just not really what they did in their 20s, or really ever. But still, my mom sort of ingrained in my head that the same way you expect to go to high school after middle school would be the same way you would expect to attend college and get a bachelor's after high school. So not having it still just felt wrong - I was disappointed in myself for not living up to this. To shorten this up a bit... Before Ashworth I attended a technical college, two universities, and a college. All were regionally accredited, which is the most desirable accreditation for US secondary institutions. Ashworth's worst flaw is that it is nationally accredited, which doesn't bother me. Paying attention to job descriptions reveals that an accredited bachelor's degree is required, without specification of which accreditation one should have - after questioning this and conducting research into this, I found that most did not really care about which accreditation a college had, as long as it was accredited by the US Dept. of Education. Ashworth is. However Ashworth is not a participant of Federal education funds/grants/loans/etc. But as of now, the end of 2021, this college's tuition is actually affordable in such a way that you honestly do not need to worry about getting in that much debt. They do offer one scholarship, or they used to. I am unsure about details of that right now. Currently, a semester costs well under $1,500, and a discount off that if you can pay out in full. Generous monthly payment plans available. For two semesters, I want to say it's still under $3,000. And there's a fairly simple way to get the fourth semester paid for. You can get a bachelor's degree for a great price, a price that is still far less than the cost of just one year at most colleges! Just because Ashworth is an online college with national accreditation does not mean their coursework lacks in any way. I always have excelled on math - took AP Calculus in high school, made an A, plus earned my college credit on the exam. I still found their business statistics and statistical analysis courses to be slightly challenging! Even with the open book policy! Most tests in this college are open book. But if you think that means you could just easily skip learning anything and just answer questions with information simply found in the online text, and then just easily move on through.. you'd be incorrect. I actually have learned genuinely valuable and applicable knowledge from courses at Ashworth. Each course also requires like two writing assignments. And they will definitely read them, so don't think it's a free 100. You have to put in real effort to get that A. That being said though, the selling point for me what the REAL option of this college being SELF-PACED. So many others incorrectly claim this. But I just finished my first semester with Ashworth (transfered about 70-75 credit hours on total - fairly generous with that process too - and they're fairly quick with transcript evaluations). I completed this semester in about two months, which is quite fast. But that doesn't mean I just "zoomed" on through. It required a lot of time on my end, with a lot of effort and self-motivation as well. If you aren't self-motivated to complete your work, don't go here. Really, if you're like that, I don't think there's any legitimate college you should attend... But Ashworth does require one to have a bit more of self-motivation just because of its set-up. Also, another downside is the lack of degree and course offerings. They offer what I would deem as just enough. But I still wish there were a couple more subject areas (I like taking a bit of everything possible really - I like learning in all areas to have at least some level of knowledge in most things). Overall, my recommendation regarding Ashworth is YES. I think they are worth it. And to sum this up, I would like to add this last portion in without being too specific. So attending Ashworth led me to applying for a job through one of their sister institutions... My previous and current experience with both work and education has seemed to work out for the better. I hope to move up within the organization upon earning my bachelor's - this job seems wonderful and has great benefits... And it's the highest paying job I've actually had, like ever. And since it's affiliated with Ashworth, well, I'm glad I decided to go to Ashworth. It seems to be helping me educationally and professionally, so this college has already significantly helped improve my life before I've even graduated."

"I have always considered myself a life learner. I currently hold both an Associate's and Bachelor's degree as well as an MBA. I enrolled at Ashworth under one of the career diploma programs to refamiliarize myself with the Security industry as my plan is to open my own agency in the near future. When I enrolled in the program, their website specifically stated that a textbook was included. Other courses specified an e-textbook for their curriculum. After beginning the course I reached out to Ashworth and asked when books would ship. Customer Service told me as soon as learning group 2 opened the book shipment would trigger. After opening learning group 2, just as the CS agent stated a shipment was triggered but a backorder status was applied. I waited several weeks with no change in status and reached out again. This time I received a short, "the book is an etextbook" and the ticket was closed. I then opened another ticket, explaining that when I enrolled in the course it was clearly outlined that the course offered a textbook and not an etextbook. I told them I was charged $40 for shipping and if this was actually the case I wanted a credit of $40. Ashworth responded and said that the shipping line is for various other fees. The ticket was closed, the shipment magically disappeared from my dashboard, and now I am forced to pay $40 for a piece of paper to be mailed to me once I complete the course. In regard to the material, it's ok, but rather dated. The books are almost 10 years old. For what I was looking for, the course will meet my expectations. With that said, I would not recommend this school to anyone for their career diploma programs. Ashworth needs to conduct some serious customer service training. Answering inquiries with short answers and then just closing tickets is unacceptable. There needs to be a back and forth. Only the student should be allowed to mark the ticket as closed unless several days go by without anymore input from the student. Charging a shipping fee of $40 for "other fees" is shady. Telling students there will be a textbook shipment, then deciding textbooks don't exist is shady. Removing the shipment from a dashboard once you are called out about it, is shady. This course shouldn't be anymore than $500 period. Over priced, and underdelivered."

"I started Ashworth in 2006 but I stopped my program because I saw negative reviews. So I went to college on campus and found myself working as a nursing assistant for low wages. After earning 45 credits at several community colleges over the years, I had 8k in student loans. I did not want to take out anymore loans to get my education. I did more research on LinkedIn and found several graduates of Ashworth College working at places such as Chase bank, Wells Fargo as well as Major hospitals. At the age of 35 I decided I wanted to complete my diploma in Property Management. I choose to pay in full but I had the option to pay $59 monthly. I used a credit card and worked full time at night. When I enrolled, I used the Ashworth Facebook group as well as the student community. I motivated myself daily. The course had an ebook but I ordered a book used off Amazon. I completed all my chapters as well as my capstone project. When I needed help I sent my instructor an email and got a prompt response. I also had the option to get tutored but Im a independent learner so I rarely called. After I completed my course, which took me a year, I received my diploma. I will be taking my certification exam to be a Certified Leasing Consultant/ Assistant Property Manager as a starting position in the field. I will be continuing on with Ashworth College for my associates degree in business ( they accepted all my credits from 10 years ago) I’m very happy with my experience with the college and recommend them."

"Worst Customer Satisfaction I could possibly give. I enrolled in the school and paid for several months. I decided I wanted to go a different career route, and called to cancel. I have NOT TAKEN ONE CLASS. I still have to pay a cancelation fee that is above what my normal payment is. I will not ever recommend this school. If I had taken some classes, I could see that there might be a cancelation fee, but this school has taken over $200 from me and still wants more."

"Discovered an error in one of my Real Estate Law quizzes. Brought it to the attention of Support. They refused to address it. Same error appeared in my final exam. Support ignored the request yet again. Both profoundly effected my grades. Contacted President Britt and all of the college board members. They were too cowardice to admit they'd made a drastic error. Had to file an ethics complaint against President Britt. Their minion Andrew Kachurak gave a 'blanket CYA' response accusing me, the USPS, the Board, and his own co-worker of all lying that the college never received any of my correspondence. Fortunately, the USPS' tracking capabilities put a cork in Andrew's spout of sewage. He later admitted in a personal email that he was wrong; yet unfortunately left his stink over at the BBB. Not only does this school give quizzes and final exams with bogus information, they hide like roaches when the kitchen lights come on when faced with the reality that they screwed up. Highly UNRECOMMENDED!"

"I completely recommend Ashworth College. I have attended several community colleges and universities in the pursuit of my education. Ashworth has been one of my absolutely favorite colleges! The course content is just as good, in my opinion, as any regionally accredited college. You do have to be a self-starter and self-motivated, but you can't beat the flexibility that Ashworth offers. You basically have five courses every semester. There is one final semester exam that encompasses all courses. You have access to an online library and ProQuest for any needed research. There are papers involved (as most colleges have and should have), but do be aware. There seems to be usually two essays per course, but I found them fair and not exceedingly hard. A semester is usually six months but you can definitely take longer if you need to. While I recommend logging in daily to work a little bit, because of the self-paced nature of the school, I could decide to not log in for a week (if I was swamped with work or events in life) and everything would be okay. Ashworth allowed me to finally achieve my dream of finishing my associate's degree after struggling to finish it over 5 years due to health issues. They were extremely generous with my transfer credit and almost took all my prior credits which was around 45 credits. Another school in a different program only accepted 16, so this was a huge blessing! I thank God for showing me Ashworth. It was so worth it. I now finally have my degree framed on my wall that I've been dreaming about for years. I have decided to continue my education at Ashworth to a bachelor's degree. I'm so excited and can't wait! A quick tip: check with your future job's requirements and make sure they accept Ashworth's credits. Do the same with any master's programs. Best of luck in your pursuits and may God bless your journeys!"

"I am going to the school right now and I’m getting my bachelors degree in psychology here because it extremely cheap and I can go get my masters and doctorate at a nicer school. I do not want to go into debt this gives me the opportunity to go to school debt free. If you can’t afford 1500 every 6 months then the school is not for you. Also just email your professors most of them care and they only have 5 days to grade not ten. I do not recommend this college for a masters here this is a awesome college to get you in the door for high education."

"Liked this school at first but now I am taking some of the courses and the material does not match the tests. I do not know where they are getting their info for the tests. It is not always provided so I end up getting like a 75 or 85 around there on my tests. Also, I have been out of work and they will on differ my payments for two months and that is it. I am still out of a job and can not make my payments. I don't feel like I am even learning anything that is really going to help me. Seems really watered down and not enough reading material for one course. you get through the courses a little too fast and have plenty of time to relax. Seems like this school is all about just getting your money."

"I don't understand all the bad reviews. I have had nothing but a great experience with Ashworth. Their customer service is always friendly, I never needed a textbook (they are all online), and I can finish the course quickly. I currently have 3 courses open and can complete them all within the next 2-3 months. You get a nice discount if you pay for the whole semester at once which I really like. The only bad thing I can say about them is that I still have not received the hard copy of my Associate's Degree which I completed in November of last year. But after asking they have said they will send it out again and have called to verify my address. If you are able to study on your own and do not need encouragement or guidance, I would recommend Ashworth."
