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.
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.
