Rich - 2/26/2020
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2020
"I was a student with Ashworth College in the accounting course. I couldn't complete the course because of serious health issues that had place me in and out of the hospital. Keep in mind that I was away from the accounting course to the limit that I felt that I needed to start completely over to get everything out of the course. I tried to enroll in the accounting course the second week of February. I had the enrollment papers all filled out and I even paid for it in full. I called the student services of why it was taking so long to accept a full payment of the accounting course. I was told that I was not accepted to start the program all over and for me to just pay for the extension of where I left off. I expressed to them the reason that I wanted to start the program over and still they refused. I asked for the journals, ledgers and etc so that I could at least continue on from there since I didn't have that homework paperwork with me. That included the grade project that I didn't have any longer. Still they refused to accept the full payment of the course and for me to continue on from where I left off. They made such a production of this to where I will not take anymore course through them. If they can't help the students like what I went through and asking for help to start the program over again so that I could get the full affect of the course and paid for in full, well, Ashworth College is worth my time nor my dollar. I would recommend to all that are looking for online courses to continue to look elsewhere because Ashworth College is a joke. I have never had this kind of treatment in my life of asking to start a program over and paid for in full. Save your money, look elsewhere. They don't care about the students at all."

Rachael L. - 2/14/2020
Degree: Graphic Design
Graduation Year: 2020
"I typically had a good experience. There weren't any video lectures. It was just mainly reading from textbooks (they mailed me one physical book and gave me one as a PDF, included in the cost of the program). They have you do a series of lessons with exams and from each lesson is a number of projects you can do for your portfolio that you turn in at the end. I'm close to graduating, but I still have to do the final exam and turn in my portfolio. I definitely learned a lot. I kind of wish I knew how to go about getting a graphic design job or internship after this though. I'm still a little nervous that I will not be prepared to either find work after finishing. I also wish they would talk about free and open source alternatives to Adobe programs because the Adobe Creative Suite is nice but it's also really expensive. There are cheaper programs or free programs that do many of the same things."

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2020
"This school is ridiculous and no one working at that school cares about the students or their concerns. Their system is full with glitches, I wish I never started this course with them. Terrible online school. THE ABSOLUTE WORST ONLINE SCHOOL. Do not waste your money."

E Anthony - 2/4/2020
Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2019
"A complete waste of time and money! I graduated from Ashworth in October, 2019 (tuition paid in full). It's now February 5th, 2020 and I have yet to receive my degree. I've called Ashworth's student services numerous times only to be told, "It can take a while." I was also told that Ashworth uses an outside company that is responsible for printing and mailing out degrees. However, Ashworth will not provide this company's name or contact information. Therefore, students have no way of knowing if and when these diplomas are ever printed or sent. At this point I'm convinced my degree will never arrive. Thousands of dollars wasted."

Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2020
"Save your money and your valuable time and look elsewhere. I was told by ashworth college that by taking their program I would be able to take my exam. They lied to me and now I have to spend more money to go to an actual course that will be approved by my state to take my exam. Disappointed and disgusted."

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020
"Everything throughout my entire time with this school was pleasant. Customer service always helped me, and the tutors were always exceptional and my degree is accepted in my home state and in my profession which is going to allow me faster promotability. Thank Ashworth Note: all the negative reviews can't even spell right, probably don't need to be enrolled in the first place lol"

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019
"I first want to start off by saying that i enjoyed being able to work at my own pace. I enjoyed the flexibility of finishing my degree from home and still not missing a beat with my family. My issue is with the money aspect. They don't allow for Financial Aid, but i thought i was ok since i originally was paying like $40 a month. The issue was that i was completing my semesters faster than planned( a good thing) but before long i went from paying $40 a month to $150 dollars a month, and that was a little more out of my budget. The most they could do was skip a month in payment, but i still owed almost $3,000 because i was paying for at least 3 semesters. I am literally about a semester in a half from my Bachelor's degree, but i have since been sent to collections because i could not keep up with the payments. i wish that this school accepted financial aid, or even allowed loans to help. I worked so hard, but spinned myself in a financial web with this school. I'm not saying dont go to this school. im just saying do your research, i;d rather have my degree and be paying on a loan, than to not have anything and still owe( because they wont release even my associates until those semesters are paid for."

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2013
"Dear Potential Students - Currently I am a student at Ashworth College. I received my Associate Degree in Healthcare Management in 2013 from Ashworth and now moving forward successfully with my BS in Healthcare Management. I have thoroughly enjoyed every second of my learning experience. I am an independent learner and I have ADHD and found online school to be the best means of learning. With my ADHD I am able to work at my own pace enabling me to focus and be a successful student. Everything about Ashworths online curriculum is great! From it's user friendly website, the Adminstrator, the Representatives, the Financial staff, to the Faculty and IT staff. There's always a friendly encouraging voice at the other end of the phone willing to help me reach my academic and career goals. Ashworths program is not only affordable, but my employers have viewed my degree as positive. Ashworth has many programs to choose from to suit any students needs. I highly recommend Ashworth College. Many blessings and good luck with your studies! Shari Tron"

Jake - 12/1/2019
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2020
"Wow! I am reading many negative reviews regarding this college. As just a student who worked hard and submitted assignments on time, I have 0 regrets signing up for the program at Ashworth. Keep it simple: 1 )Do assignments on time ( Believe me they are not easy, teachers thoroughly check your work). 2 ) Work hard, Yes! ( This college could be compared to any other regular universities course work, my friend is doing his MBA from George Washington University - the course is almost the same.) Teachers are very helpful and professional and my books came on time with enough resources, I never had any issues and never contact customer service."

Degree: Early Childhood Education
Graduation Year: 2016
"DO NOT USE THIS SCHOOL. My wife passed in 2017. She had completed the certificate program a year earlier - and to get through the expense I filed bankrupcy so I have no financial obligation to this joke of a school- but they refuse to send me even an unofficial certificate so i can put it into the the box of memories for my 6 children. Beside that - the degrees are worth absolutely nothing in my state. The degrees do not transfer to even a community college ? My wife needed to submit proof of taking classes to the state and they would not accept them from Ashworth. It is a month out from 2020 and I am still waiting for the certificate--- it has been a long 72 hours"
