Ashworth College Reviews - Bachelor's in Liberal Arts
Ashworth College was a great option for me and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an education. My employer also provided tuition reimbursement for my degree because Ashworth is an accredited institution. I had no trouble transferring credits into Ashworth and no trouble using my BA from Ashworth as the foundation for my MA and PhD studies.
Ashworth is a great choice for someone who is looking to finish their degree and are already in an established career needing a Bachelor's Degree for career advancement. I needed to finish my degree as I already had over half the credits required to complete a Bachelors Degree. Ashworth is a great value for the money but NOT a college for someone right out of High School or, as stated in other reviews, an institution for technical careers that have specific requirements. Additionally, Ashworth's curriculum is 100% self directed which requires a greater amount of focus. I personally have tried several online schools and must say that Ashworth's online materials, library and delivery of materials is exceptional at a fraction of the cost. The staff at Ashworth are not really that helpful and their skills are a little rough around the edges and not your typical employee at a higher education institution. If you limit your communications to online chats then you wont be as frustrated with what appears to be individuals who have only a high school education.. PROS: Affordable, Flexible payment plan, Full pay of tuition discount, accredited, self directed, online flexibility, excellent resources including library, good introductory courses CONS: Self directed, Tech/Computer courses outdated, not regionally accredited, Staff, Will not transfer credits received over 10 years prior
Good school. When I started most of the courses were via. "snail mail" but the school made a transition into the digital age. It is quickly becoming a major player in education and without a doubt was a forerunner of 21st century distance education. Go Ashworth!
I am graduating again from North Dakota State University in December 2016 with my Masters of Software Engineering. Other universities do accept Ashworth College degrees so you can get a Masters degree in your field. I graduated with honors with my Bachelors of Arts in general studies.
I was very happy with Ashworth College. I would have never been able to get a degree without their payment plan program, with was very reasonably priced. The staff was always helpful about the payments, books and courses. All the textbooks are included in the price which saves a lot of money. You can work at your own pace going quickly through easy courses and taking your time through the difficult ones. You can adjust your studies to your work schedule. The general studies was fun because you get choose a lot of your courses. It was wonderful. My courses transferred to a Graduate school and I am earning my Masters degree in software engineering now!
