Ashworth College Reviews
Browse Reviews by Popular Programs:
I've read a lot of negative reviews and decided to post a positive one. I enrolled in Medical Coding/Billing and successfully completed it with GPA 3.7, higher than my undergrad GPA. I took this programs to add to my degree in Social Work and to gain more knowledge within the field of medical billing. I've had nothing but good results from this educational institution. I've received my materials in a timely manner, assignments were graded and recorded in the same fashion. When i had an issue or need to speak with someone regarding my course work i submitted a ticket and someone responded promptly.The only issue i faced was receiving my diploma after completing my course, i'm sure it was due to so many students graduating and my lack of patience. With that being said, I enjoyed my education experience at Ashworth and I'm considering returning for my Master's Degree. Not to mention graduating debt free.
Ashworth is the worst online college you can attend. Why? Because they add on thousands to your bill that shouldn't even be there, lie. manipulate. And when you're complete they don't send a diploma or even transcript until you pay 12,000$ and more...! For what? Nobody ever knows, save your money and go somewhere else, ANYWHERE else. Will advise everyone I know never to go here.
The program is very thorough. I saw another review that was bad. Its like the millionth one. I agree with some of these reviews that say the reviews that are bad are usually from people who are having problems on the phone or with their payments. Because once you actually do the course it is great. Very structured, well put together. My wife is in the Medical Billing and Coding. She loves it but says it needs a bit updating because TRUMP being in office changes alot of this information. He has taken away many programs. It just needs to be updated, we notice the dates mentioned are 2010-2014 and 2015 in some cases. Needs to be current. Beyond that, it is an inexpensive school, a good school and we are happy.
I applied too Ashworth from PCDI Canada I put 300 dollars down and 4 days later realized this was not the one for me the did not give me back my money and they made it impossible for me to get a hold of anyone . Did not return no emails.so when finally I got a hold of somone they said they will do a review took 15O from me and the other 150 I have no clue where it is.
I keep seeing bad reviews but some of ya'll aren't reviewing the course. Your reviewing the customer service people on the phone, or the fact that you didn't pay. Or that you say you paid but don't have the receipt. Ok thats not a review. So I would like to review the actual degree program which I am almost done with. Each part of your program will include lessons and assignments. Youre responsible for completing all of your lessons and assignments in full, in the order in which theyre listed Reading sections of the textbook and answering questions about the material. Reviewing lesson material provided by the instructor and summarizing the content. Accessing outside resources, such as videos, articles, or other material, and taking notes or answering questions about the subject matter. Completing self-study questions or defining vocabulary words. Submitting special projects. Some of ya'll haven't done any of this and are bad reviewing Ashworth for a phone call that went "wrong". Thats not the schools fault. Some of you don't like the online ebooks. You want textbooks. Ok those COST ALOT. So Ashworth has provided a way to give you an inexpensive education. You cant have your cake and eat it too. I have found this IF YOU DO IT COMPLETELY to be a great Finance course. I got professionally certified and got a job. If you say your job wouldn't take your diploma your lying. If your not lying get it on camera and sue them.. see you can't cuz your lying.
I took the medical transcription course. The reasons I do not recommend this college are the following: 1. Outdated materials. I was sent a medical dictionary from 1998. There is a program that is mentioned throughout the book, and I spent a lot of time trying to get it to work, only to find out that I didnt need it, though it probably would have worked with the foot pedal they sent. 2. Instructors dont have any contact information so I couldnt email and ask questions. I had to rely on representatives (they were nice) for that program issue previously mentioned. The ticket system is useless. It would take over a week to get a response and even then, it was absolutely no help. Theyd always say there wasnt enough information but wouldnt ask for it and close the ticket, saying the matter was resolved. Id have to figure things out for myself. I also sent an email AGES ago that still hasnt been responded to. 3. The quizzes were simple and hardly covered any of the material in the book. They didnt quiz on actual transcription, just medical information. There was no transcription practice anywhere that could be graded by an instructor and handed in. They provided exercises and the answers but I would have liked to have been able to contact a professor with any questions I had. So I had to figure out the final project by myself, which the foot pedal would have helped with but it wouldnt work, so I had to do everything manually. 4. Theyre holding my certificate hostage until everything is paid in full, so until then, I have to settle for a letter of completion. I completed the certification with a 4.00, spent countless nights studying and reading until 2-3am knowing I would have to wake up at 7-8am for my kid. I would like to have something to show for it other than a letter of completion. All in all, if I could give this college a negative, I would. Do not recommend one bit.
This place is a huge scam! They tell you one thing and do the complete opposite. Never send you supplies or books you pay for then keep wanting more and more money from you. Student services is a joke. I called to ask a few questions about some accounting issues and I was literally called a liar and told that I was making things up and did not know what I was talking about. I would not recommend to anyone.
I earned my degree in 2006 with 3 young children and 1 toddler at home (homeschooling) and managing a home business. After raising my children, I re-enrolled in 2017 to continue my education for a Bachelors Degree in Business Admin. I have not had any issues or problems at all! The student portal is easy to learn and use. On the rare occasion that I had to call in to Student Services, I was treated with respect and the service has always been great! I already have a job that I enjoy utilizing the knowledge that I have learned. I'm excited to complete my 2nd degree with Ashworth College! #ClassOf2006and2019 Thank You Ashworth!
So happy I chose Ashworth! Awesome experience, easy to follow program, work at your own pace. I would definitely recommend ithis college to anyone who is working a full time job and dont have the time to go to classes on campus. Thanks you Ashworth.
Some of the reviews about the college you just can't listen to or believe. Saying a phone operator from the school was rude, is NOT reviewing the course. It is reviewing a person in a call center. That is not a review of the school. If you have criticism about your courses, the lessons, or computer stuff, that would seem to be more productive. You get out what you put into this.
