I would recommend to everyone to enroll with Ashworth. I discovered that prestigious college such as SUNY ESC was very bad college for me and Ashworth much better, so I transfererd my credits to Ashworth. Teleconferencing, tutoring, assistance, were very educative and everything is very good organized. In addition, I had the experience with Penn Foster as well and it's not better than Ashworth. Penn has very strict English instructors, and SUNY is the opposite- you pass courses very easily and therefore you're not learning. They only want your money! On the other hand, Penn Foster, wants your money, poor tutoring, and bad grading in order that you won't get hired! They can't put all graduates to work, so the lie has to continue. Strongly recommend ASHWORTH COLLEGE! !!!!
This program worked well for me. It allowed me to enter the corporate workforce and I am now running my own successful business. Like most things, it is what you make it.
When I need to call to open classes, exams or anything. I always experience rude, horrible customer service. Plus, they update the system almost every night and on weekends. Its hard for people who work to find time to complete exams. If you are looking for an online college. Don't make the same mistake, I made.
If you seriously care about your education please do not go here. It is not regionally accredited which means if you want to transfer to another or better school, they won't take your credits. Customer service is condescending and rude, completely unhelpful, and the instructors are not educated enough. The material used is years out of date, citing things from 10 years ago. I am trying to transfer to another school now and I'm extremely limited. After my first semester, I'm positive this school is useless and not even worth going there free.
Took online classes in AutoCad from Ashworth College in spring of 2016. my interest was in AutoCad for Mac. The student advisor lied about program curriculum and promised that the ONLINE DIPLOMA IN Auto Cad includes tutorials for MAC. I paid 150$ for the enrollment to get access to the tutorials. The tutorials were all for Windows, old materials and kind of not up to date. The Ashworth college refused to return any money and ignored my requests. The worst place ever to study. hope my review will help someone decide not to invest in ASHWORTH college any penny:-((((
The certificate program I took with this school was OK. I got a well written physical textbook and had no problems. With the degree program however, I noticed their grading was quirky. For instance they would comment on a Essay Writing exam that the essay was well written and then give me a D- grade. Also, I noticed some of the exam questions would ask about material that had not been in the lesson. When I asked the professor about this she told me to email her the question and correct answer. I did and got no response. This happened on just about every exam. The online e-books are written poorly with multiple typos and even mistakes that alter the correct info that you retain. I feel they could do a lot better with the school considering the money they have rolling in!
This school is not for everyone. You must be a self motivator, and able to concentrate and focus without someone pushing you. (As with all distance learning) I have worked in the healthcare industry for 15 years and wanted to further my education. I work fulltime, have 2 children and am pregnant, so traditional college was not an option for me. For me this program was perfect. I had the flexibility to take classes at my availability, the school accepted all of my transfer credits, and due to life experience I was able to relate to most of the course material. I am continuing my education with this school on to my bachelors degree. I love this school.
IF YOU ARE MILITARY, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO NOT GO THROUGH ASHWORTH COLLEGE AS A CORRESPONDENT COURSE. YOU WILL NOT GET YOUR ENROLLMENT VERIFICATION SENT IN A TIMELY MANNER TO THE V.A. TO RECEIVE REIMBURSEMENT PAYMENTS. THIS WAS THE ONLY ISSUE I HAD WITH ASHWORTH COLLEGE AND THEIR MILITARY DIVISION. OTHER THAN THAT IT WAS GOOD.
I really enjoyed my experience. Every one star review I have seen is issues that are clearly displayed on either the main webpage or in the syllabus. It isn't Ashworth's fault that you cant read. Study issues? Seriously!!! Ever hear of Google? Credits don't transfer? Its written in the syllabus for you to check! The only good grip is the ones that paid and had degree delivery issues. The rest of the one stars need to grow up and get a clue.
The only reason I gave it 1 star is because I couldn't choose 0 stars. The school is a total rip off. They charged us $928.00 for a spiral bound notebook when we called for help we were put on hold for 45 min someone came on the line put us on hold n we got disconnected called back was on hold for another 30 min finally gave up. Had to quit attending due to family health and told the lady from Ashworth why, she said she was sorry to hear about that and whenever he was ready to come back just give them a call. Well we just gave them that call and they're saying that conversation never happened they would've told him to cancel the school and charged him $250 they NEVER told us about a cancelation fee they just kept charging him and sending it to collections when I tried to call the school the lady was very ignorant rude and hung up on me
