Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (293)
I recently earned my Associates Degree from Ashworth in Business Management. I am now working on my Bachelors Degree with Ashworth. I am reading the other reviews and can't believe all the bad reviews the school has gotten. I love Ashworth. I have been with the school since 2005 and have had NO PROBLEMS!I lost my job was having a hard time with making tuition payments and they worked with me. I never had to stop going to school. Customer service very helpful. I would recommend Ashworth!
I am now pursuing by BS in Early Childhood Education after being out of school for 20 years. Ashworth has a quality program and I have so far experienced good service. They are NOT a diploma mill. If you don't pass a class you have to re take it. As for employers or other colleges not accepting their credits, this is not totally true.
It depends on your state. I live in Florida, which is recognized but my sister live in another state which does not recognize. It's about money. State colleges want your money, of course. Distance learning is the future. Write your congressmen/women and demand that quality online schools be recognized!
My wife and I are currently enrolled in courses and all I can say simply put is.....Ashworth College rocks!!! the people are GREAT!!!! the lessons are totally outstanding in every way, nothing left to chance or to guess about......I am really, really pleased and when I finish with my course I want to enroll in another course and continue!!!!!!!!!!
THANKYOU FOR EVERYTHING ASHWORTH!!!!! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!
I obtained AA in Early Childhood Education from Ashworth but I am back in Community College. This school is not regionally accrdited and the state of North Carolina doesn't accept my degree from Ashworth. So I pretty much wasted my money and time. I hope nobody else will make a mistake I made.
I used to have lots of trouble in school. I started to feel school was just not for me. I knew deep down in order to gain a career instead of a job that I would need education. I tried Ashworth and I am so happy I did. I think I was distracted in a classroom environment with all that was going on around me. For once in my life I can actually say I am smart! I just had to find my style of learning. I understand all of my assignments and my grades are so high now. Now I can say school is for me and I owe it all the Ashworth College. I believe if you put your mind to it anything is possible. I am taking the Security Management Associate Degree Program. When I began, I was securing apartment complexes in a patrol car not making enough to provide for my family. Since I have been enrolled with Ashworth College, I have been able to apply what I have been taught and I now have been promoted to the Criminal Investigations unit in my company. I owe a lot of my success to Ashworth and hope you find the same results!
I would be very careful when enrolling in this school. I didn't find out til after the fact that I couldn't take a state certification test. So basically I just threw away 900.00. I can withdraw and pay a horrible amount. I would not recommend this school to anyone.. WHAT A JOKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have recently taken and completed the Forensic Science program with Ashworth. This course has helped me in my career (police officer). I have also checked Ashworth and found that Ashworth is accredited through the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC), which is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as the “nationally recognized accrediting agency” for distance education institutions. I would recommend Ashworth to anyone wanting to better themselves.
I am going on to my 3rd semester as a business student. My life experiences and training Asworth has afforded me the oppertunity to advance in my career.In addition, as a testament of the quality level of education I recieved to date, I have helped students from many brick and mortar college institutions.
Hopefully my degree program will be completed early next year and I will be able to start my law degree at another institution.
I joined Ashworth College for the simple reason of convenience as an online student. The course outlined on their website that I would be receiving: •Two illustrated textbooks •Study guides •Two tutorial CDs •Open-book online exams •Tutorial Assistance •Convenient online student support
After completing 3 lessons, I soon realised that I should be getting my Tutorial CDS. After calling the school they said that I would NOT be getting the CDS.
After speaking to their staff, I was given two choices either cancel the course and PAY the cancellation fees or join another course. I feel that after this experience, I did not want to start another course. Their staff informed me that the CDs were very basic and had no real input in the course. I did not enroll for just a basic course.
Regardless, I feel that I did not get what I enrolled for. I wasted my time.I think that this is unethical and I am requesting a full refund. I am still being given the run around.
For a working student every penny counts. I feel very frustrated knowing that even after all this, I was however shocked to hear that I If I cancelled I would have to pay a cancellation fee in addition. After all this, I only received one textbook from them and one study guide seems to cost me close to $300.00. This is undeniably excessive.
I supposed I would have been better off buying a tutorial CD from a bookstore then perhaps I would have gotten what I paid for.
Firstly, for anybody who is interested in this course, know in advance that it is for FRONT OFFICE medical assisting, not back office. Through the course you will learn some back office procedures, but because this is not a hands on course, you only are able to really get the "feel" of the front office part of medical assisting (even though they do not state it until you receive the course materials). You also get a feel of medical billing and coding specialization too. I started the program last month, and so far aside from what was just said, I REALLY like it. The course material is not too easy, and not too tricky, it is set up so it is easy and enjoyable to read, and is just all around set up very well. It is most definitely only for people who have the willpower and determination to teach themselves, as you can't get instruction from a teacher all the time. The Ashworth forum REALLY helps in this situation if you need help. So far I have had more success getting my questions answered there quicker than emailing the college themselves. Overall, distance education from them has its pros and cons, but I totally would recommend this college to anybody who wants to get into distance education. I love Ashworth so far =]
