Ashworth College Reviews
Browse Reviews by Popular Programs:
I did not graduate from this program. After my initial problems accessing the student portal and lack of support, I contacted them to cancel my enrollment. And since then, for 4 months, I have received numerous bills. And they state now I owe $400. I did not complete anything past the initial intro course due to technical difficulties. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
Dear Future Student: I have found Ashworth College Early Childhood Degree to be worthless!!!! In actuality it is a worthless piece of paper that cost thousands of dollars and countless hours to obtain. Ashworth College knows most states require them to teach using an accredited education program in order for their education degree to work in various sates like the one I reside in. They offered no disclaimer saying it did not teach from NAEYC. By having NAEYC accreditation (which stands for National Association of Education for the Young Child.) This would allow me to teach Early Childhood with my degree until I take the teachers exam. If I knew they didn't meet the national educational curriculum preferred I never would have waisted my time! Ashworth did not meet those standards or even comply with the minimum requirements that asked them to place the College embossed seal on my Enrollment Verification Form stating that I did in fact complete my Bachelors's Degree there and graduated! After several certified requests sent by mail this summer they are yet to respond to my request!For months They have been giving me the run around about completing the necessary paperwork needed for me to pursue my teaching career. I have a thick file now of communication from registrars office to Chief Academic Officer to the President and I'm still awaiting paperwork to be filled out and returned. Months of certified letters sent, but they keep stalling! Why? Because their degree program has proven to not meet the requirements! Buyer beware!!!!Before you consider any educational degree check your state requirements first, like so many out there we found out too late! It's no good to you job wise, not even worth the paper it's printed on!!! I hope to sue them in the near future for every dime I spent! Big waste of time and money!
Let me just say first, the school has awesome academics. I can't speak for all of their programs, but as far as pharmacy technician certificate goes, it is in great depth and was overall very good. However, operating within their secure website was very, very difficult for me and I am 21 years old- so it's definitely not because I don't know how to use technology. You have to wait up to a few days for different lessons to properly load and cache onto your portal, it is very sensitive to logging into different tabs, and MOST FRUSTATINGLY it sometimes does not let you login to your profile at all, for no apparent reason- no matter which browser you use, no matter if you restart your computer or laptop, etc...it just gives up! which as you can imagine is quite frustrating. So long story short: is it worth the couple hundred bucks? yes. Will you want to call customer service and tear them apart for such poor fluidity in the portal? yes. Now ya know. Hope this helps.
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 attended this school for about 4 months in 2015 to obtain an auto cad certification. Within the 4 months, the material provided was clear and well written. The tests did challenge me, as well as the class work. I would recommend this school on a certificate level. The instructor that i had did help when i needed. Usually within a day if not before, i had a response. Again i would recommend.
This 'school' is beyond a waste of money, I've been waiting 5 weeks since I completed my last class to receive the text book for the next class. You are more likely to be bitten by a great white shark in the desert than to speak with someone useful when you call customer service. On numerous occasions the answers to the quiz questions have been dead wrong, directly contradicting the CDC. Do not waste your time or money, you'll learn nothing.
I completed the course and earned my degree, and never received it in the mail because I was unable to attend graduation. It had really slip my mind until i applied for a job and they requested it. So I called Ashworth College and gave them all the information they said I would receive it in 4 to 6 weeks that was back in October 2016 well it's now June 2017 and I still haven't received it. Every time I call oh you will have it in 4 to 6 weeks then I had to wait another 44 days. Back in May when I called they told me it was sent out but came back because they put a period in front of the NE (N.E.) I'm like really i get mail all the time like that.(smh) So this morning they telling me that they have to wait until they get it back then they will call me and let me know they got it. It's taking me longer to get the degree in my hand than it took me to complete it , I enjoyed taking classes with them I never had any problems I received my shipment on time, but I just don't understand why I can't get my degree I don't owe them any money so what's the hold up with them. This type of stuff calls for poor rating my job was pressuring me and I almost lost my spot as the lead teacher good thing my boss said she would use the official transcript for now
This school is legit. Everyone talking a out transfer credits.... why bother when you don't need to? Regionally Accredited schools do one thing and one thing only, CHARGE you more. Ashworth does not. You can get an Associates, Bachelors and Masters here. If you want to transfer to a regionally accredited school, you can transfer to American Public/Military University and get the rest of your degree from them. They are also reasonably priced. Don't let people scare you. They are just afraid to hustle. The quality of the material from this school is right in the middle. It isn't Harvard, but it isn't high school level either. It is challenging and requires work. I LOVE how the text books are professional and used by the same Regional schools. They cut through the BS and let you read about the main points quickly, instead of going through a ton of material and shit you don't actually need. I have learned so much from my classes and it truly is at your own pace.
I am a current student and I am currently waiting for my professor, to grade my last few assignments so I can register for graduation. This has definitely been a waiting process getting this done. I never had this issue until the classes she is grading. The College gives a 10 day waiting period before contacting the professors. Why?!? This is absurd length of time especially when you have already met the deadline requirements and just waiting for grades to come back. Student's that are trying to make Graduation registration should be put first. The 10 day waiting period is ridiculous and holds the students back. The pro's are I definitely would recommend Ashworth college to friend and family because the work is understandable, it's on your time and tuition is affordable. Con's are 10 day wait to get grades back, a long wait to get ticket/emails answered and staff can be more understanding, patient and professional.
Terrible... the program I was given did not match the program I was given. Faulty emails sent about materials being shipped before I started that never arrived delaying the start to the program. Then to find out I was not getting materials for the first part of the program. Since this was so disorganized and confusing I decided to cancel my program... which apparently got messed up too... Now being charged over $200 to cancel a program I was never able to start onto received materials for. VERY DISSAPOINTED.
