Ashworth College Reviews

I graduated with an associate's degree in Early Childhood Education and now I'm working on my bachelor's in Psychology. The degree helped me get a pay raise. Online classes are easier for me with a full time job. My only complaint is that the staff is a bit unorganized when it comes to communication.
I have been waiting on the last step of the course which is the externship for more than half a year. I paid for the fingerprint and finished all the forms long time ago. They couldnt just place me in a CVS or Walgreen. I called and emailed for many times, but they just kept having me to wait. It is definitely not worth waiting for this. I spent like $700+ on this course, but now I spent most of my time waiting.
I have received two diplomas from this institution and graduated with honors. I had the most pleasant educational experience. When I needed help they were right there. My textbooks were always shipped fast. I've attended the live graduation also and even been invited to join the Delta Epsilon Tau Honor Society because of my 4.0 gpa . Thanks Ashworth for giving me a great beick and mortor school experience online.
Collectively it has taken me over 3.5 months to get coursework, I have until next week to secure my spot for graduation however I am STILL waiting for my last 4 tests (which I could probably do in 2 days)? Calling them is USELESS and I feel totally ripped off! I would NEVER recommend this school to anyone...
First off Id like to say about every time I called to speak to the staff they did not give the impression they cared about my questions or concerned, infact their responses sounded belittling in my opinion. And not very helpful. However S. was very polite. I had went through my course with a 4.0 grade point average and when I completed my lab simulation test I was supposed to be placed for next turn ship I had followed all the requirements and steps to obtain my pharmacy technician trainee license and I waited six months to be placed and still I could not be placed. And now theyre wanting me to pay more money for an extension just so I can sit here and wait some more. I wish that someone wouldve mentioned to me how long the wait process could take instead of making me wait in limbo. I felt it was very unprofessional on their part to not keep their students in constant contact and keep them updated as to at what point in the process they are in the placement. If you are very serious your future I would highly recommend not using Ashworth College as your school. Im sure others have their own positive experience but this was my personal experience with them.
This college is a joke. Very unclear on expectations, very slow at getting back to you, and in my particular program they made it seem again and again that there was "just one or two things" that needed to be done before I could get experience in a pharmacy. The course is organized very poorly in general. Also very unprofessional. When I called to get help for the first time they put me on hold for an hour and 20 minutes before I finally decided to just finish the task to the best of my ability. I seriously discourage anyone from taking a certificate program from Ashworth. It is a total rip off, especially when considering that for just a couple hundred dollars more you can enroll in a local community college and complete a certificate 3 or 4 times faster. A real bummer that I had to waste so much time and energy.
If you don't attend Ashworth college this is truly your loss of time and money an education is essential. With extremely hard work I got my bachelors degree in a fraction of the time and a fraction of they money Ashworth you are god sent thanks Ashworth team
Course was just a gamified version of the textbook, which itself wasn't a great reference on the topic. I've learned more from shows like Fix and Flip then I coulve hoped to have learned from this program. Then they didn't grade my final project until I contacted them to remind them twice and even reuploaded it. Then once it was graded I had to call again to find out they didn't put me on the graduate status. Maybe the other programs are better, but the college's business structure and timely manner is unbelievable. I never review anything because it's a waste of time but these people have wasted so much of my time that I feel the need to do this for them.
One of the most pathetic online schools I have ever attended. I have been emailing them about my final grade for months now but have not gotten any updates on my grades yet. I keep opening a ticket and it keeps getting closed stating someone will get to it soon. This place is a rip off, teaching outdated materials in programming, even the software's have been upgraded by Microsoft now. Dealing with them has been a nightmare and up till today I have not gotten my certificate. Stay away from this place and save your money or you will end up like me.
I am a veteran, and have been using my benefits to pay for school. I noticed a lot of the bad reviews have been associated with money. I cannot really attest to the validity of that because I am not paying out of pocket. Other than that, the course work is flexible. It is clear cut and still lets you have a life while earning a degree. I do sometimes question the credibility of the college just because it is a for profit college. I have not had any issues yet. If I have problems or need assistance I have always been accommodated. I have only had a positive experience thus far and feel like I am learning a lot. I also like that they have live graduations available.
