Ashworth College Reviews
Browse Reviews by Popular Programs:
Programs are very affordable. My first class went very well. Unfortunately their support is a nightmare. Each contact with support since I started has been a frustrating failure. The online support gives scripted answers and marks your problem as resolved as soon as they respond though Ive never had them resolve anything. Im pretty sure Im speaking to teenagers when I call their support line. They too follow a script. After 5 tries for my most recent question I asked for a supervisor to call me. One just left a message informing me of an answer to something I didnt get to ask and not coming close to resolving my issue. He left the main support number to call back. Their support is the reason I will not enroll in any other programs after this one (which was my plan) and I will not recommend this school to any of my friends looking to go back to school.
First of all I'm not an employee of Ashworth , but rather a satisfied student. I'm excited that I completed my associates in psychology, but I can tell you it was a bumpy road and you get out of it what you put into it. Before pursuing any degree at a nationally accredited college you should do your homework to see who accepts the credits or who does not. It is not the schools fault that people do not take the time to do proper research. Thank you Ashworth!
I completed the motorcycle mechanics diploma program and it was good, once paid up they gave me my diploma with no problems. It was kind of easy but I already worked on motorcycles my whole life. Then I signed up for the undergraduate certificate in psychology program. I have a degree from a regionally accredited college that is highly respected that I did online, I have also taken psychology courses at a local community college and I can tell you my psychology program at ashworth college is almost as good and up to par with the other schools. I am learning some very good stuff and the textbooks are recent. As for whether or not my diploma will be recognized I don't know. It would all depend on the employer.
I wanted to give this school a review, I've been waiting to graduate and I just did! Oct. 9, 2018. I am so happy that I did go to this school, it gave me the flexibility and most of all, the cost. I enjoyed it so much, I referred to my own son - who has a full-time job and also requiring flexibility. Yes, the school is not perfect but is it Nationally Accredited, they also have affiliations with other Regionally Accredited schools that you can later transfer credit! I have referred over 3 people in my year and a half in this school. I will be walking this coming Aug. 2019.
I would like to add my review regarding Ashworth College. I have been with James Madison High School and Ashworth College for 5 years now. I have not once been treated poorly by my teachers and i always received a reply in a timely manner. I see that many reviews are not covering the course work and are instead covering customer service. My material has always been the most recent. I have had zero issues when it came to my textbooks. All the material was relevant and orderly. My course work is great and i enjoy the overall layout. I am part of the honors society and i would like to point out that i still am able to be challenged with my work load. It isn't too easy nor is it too hard. Now let me cover the customer service aspect of this school. Yes, i have dealt with two not-so-friendly representatives and i made a report and they were dealt with accordingly. That was 3 years ago and i have never had an issue since. I pay my tuition in full every semester and have no been hit with any fees that were not disclosed in the student handbook. I truly enjoy this school and the online community! I do recommend this institution to anyone who wants an affordable, flexible and accredited education.
I signed up and completed the HVAC program, although I was satisfied with the course I'm highly dissatisfied with the school as a whole. The system to enroll is easy and fast, to get your certificate is another story. I finished in May and the schools military department still hasn't have me any clear indication on when my payment from the gi bill will be made, so I can receive my certificate. I feel like 5 months time is a bit excessive. The "submit a ticket" thing the school has is a total waste of time. They respond without answering your question and automatically change the status to "resolved." The material was decent, you get it out what you put in. But if you're expecting the schools military department to stay on the VA so you can get your certificate good luck. No certificate, what good is the material when you can't prove you know it.
This college is not only much cheaper than other colleges, it also has other benefits. The program they use for classes is much better than the program my local communtiy college uses. The books are included in the price and they arrive quickly after you complete the previous course. The only thing I think they could do better is add more Bachelor's degrees and change the name of the ebusiness program to management information systems because it is the exact same program as other colleges. If you notice all the negative reviews on here are people complaining about having to pay. Yes you have to be responsible and pay your tuition and fees...weird. I would probably normally rate it with 4 stars just based on the lack of more degree options, but I'm making it 5 stars to counter the fake reviews from people who don't want to pay their bills.
I am a real student who also has a review on Barton Com. College where I got my associates degree. I work in the mental health field and need education in psychology. I read the reviews and was very nervous about getting my undergraduate certificate from Ashworth College but because of the low cost I gave it a try. The books were on time, every time I called customer service my call was answered within 5 minutes. They were polite and the education was the same I got with my regionally accredited degree. Everything I was told about this college in negative reviews was a lie. I am very impressed with Ashworth College and I would recommend them to others.
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.
