"Just graduated with my A.S degree! I'm enlisting in the Marine Corps, and my degree is already giving me an extra rank when I start boot camp! If the military accepts Ashworth as a legit institution, I'll definitely be coming back here for my Bachelors!"

"I have nothing but good things to say about this college. Like most of you, I was skeptical about the national accreditation and reputation of the school. What I've learned over the past two years of completing my degree, is that the weight of your degree isn't in the degree itself, it's in your own professional demeanor. If I present myself professionally, confident, and knowledgeable in my interviews, employers don't care much about the fact that I have the degree except to check off that I have it. They care more about the employee they're hiring, and that they took the time to get one in the first place. Ashworth College has never tried to hide or "cover up" anything from me; when I call in with questions, they give it to me straight. I've never had any customer service issues like so many others have claimed, and I'm beginning to think the problems with customer service start with the student, not with the representative. The only academic issues I ever encountered were APA format (which is my own doing - I've always struggled with APA format) and college algebra (again, always struggled with it before.) So there was nothing wrong with any of the course materials on their end. In fact, their materials are set up in a very easy-to-learn way with their text books and 20-question exams. It's just enough for you to remember each chapter without feeling overwhelmed. I will be continuing with my Associate degree to my Bachelor degree with Ashworth. At the price and quality of education, it can't be beat. I'm living with an Ole Miss University student here in Mississippi, and I compared my college algebra class to his. He's learning the exact same materials in his class at a highly ranked university. Best of luck to y'all."

"I completed my Associates in Criminal Justice with Ashworth College in 2004. I had no issues with their websites nor did I have a problem finding a proctor at the nearby colleges. Tuition prices were great and you couldn't beat the low monthly payments for the program. Currently looking into my Bachelors with them now!"

"Ashworth College allowed me to reach my goals in my career . I was not that guy who was going to finish college, that was until I met Ashworth College. Ashworth college gives students the flexibility to finish school at your own pace. The tuition is very affordable. The school is nationally accredited which means it is accredited by the board of education. I currently work as a Detective in NYC. I am a law enforcement officer because of schools like Ashworth college. I started with pennfoster college became a cop and finished with ashworth college and received my associates. I will pursue my bachelors with Ashworth in the near future."

"It's the cheapest, fully accredited college online. DETC is recognized by the US Department of Education and CHEA, making it absolutely legitimate. I picked Ashworth as my college of choice not only for the unbeatable tuition, but the convenience of studying when I can - I work three jobs, I would never have had time to make for school if it was scheduled. I looked into other Universities online regarding transferring for my Bachelor's, but why would I? Most of the cheapest colleges online are equally accredited by DETC/CHEA, so why would I pay a bit more to go to another college with the same accreditation and the same degrees? I know Regionally Accredited is the "bee's knees" regarding education, but the truth is that a lot of us don't have the finances (nor the desire to) take out a loan or make huge payments per month. This college is a godsend to those of us who are struggling to get by, who want an education to help us out in our career goals. On a side note, ever since obtaining my education, I've received numerous county job interviews. I'm currently being processed as a Detention Services Officer with the county I'm in, in California. If anything, Ashworth College is not just a quality education, it looks great on your resume to employers showing you took the time to even get a degree in the first place!"

"I finished an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice through Ashworth. It took me about 4 years because I didn't focus on it, but that was entirely my fault. Although I didn't use my degree, I did learn a lot. All the textbooks are included with the price of your tuition. Your education at Ashworth is what you make of it. The Associates degree programs are easier because all the exams are open book and multiple choice. I am currently attending Ashworth again pursuing my bachelor's degree in Marketing now and it's challenging! For the bachelor's degree programs, you have to do a lot of research and written assignments in addition to the multiple choice exams. The assignments are graded by a course instructor, and there have been many times where I've had to re-do written assignments because I didn't get it right the first time. This isn't a cake walk. You'll have to do some real school work with the bachelor's program. I can't wait until I finish and have my bachelor's degree from an accredited college. I love the education I'm receiving through Ashworth."
