"Before you consider Ashworth make sure you understand that if you enroll and decide you do not want to continue the program you have to call them or email as they quite deceptively make it very difficult to cancel. I myself like many others tried a program. I only completed the introduction part and decided it was not for me. I went online to look for a place to cancel tried to cancel and spent hours looking with no success. Like most people with a job and a busy life you move on and eventually forget about it assuming you were dropped. Well then Ashworth comes knocking to tell you that you owe them money most of the time it does not even happen till you are at the point where the program time has lapsed and they want you to pay for the entire program even if you never attended class. You can try to appeal to them like I did and they do not care they want money for having given you little or nothing. If you do not pay they send you to collections ruining you're credit. Even though you made a common assumption that the school did not contact you and you did not continue in the program so you would be removed or dropped like a normal college. No not ash worth instead they leave you enrolled until you owe the full amount then they contact you looking for money and send you to collections unless you pay. Shady indeed !!! Otherwise the material seemed to be quality."

"I review Ashworth College as being a great college to receive an education. The courses are very straight forward. It's Affordable, and they have a great payment plan. There are really no excuses the get an education, rather it be something new to learn to begin a new job or career adventure, to advance yourself in the field your in, or as future ability. I complete a diploma in the new progam Administrative Assistant.I'm very proud of myself. THe next step is an Associate in business and possibly Bac. It worth it. In studies don't be afraid to ask question student services is available."

Degree: Private Investigator

"I was relucant about signing up. Who wants all the stress night classes and the cost from traditional college. Then I discovered the Ashworth programs. Would definintely recommend Ashworth College, especially, for mid-aged person. I have been able to rebuild confidence in myself and education for my career. You must self disciplined and okay with figuring things out for yourself. I did complete the online Private Investigator Program with Honors, and will be soon joining Delta Epsilon Tau. I immediately started working on my master's degree at Ashworth. The payment plan is awesome."

"Ashworth College for me was truly college on my terms. It allowed me to work full time, attend to the needs of my family, and improve my educational learning at the same time. I would highly recommend it! The classes were affordable and the staff worked with me when needed to resolve any educational concerns. The tutoring department was very helpful as well. It was a good investment. I'm currently enrolled in my second degree program to obtain my BS in Early Childhood Education. Moving on toward greater heights! Thanks Ashworth College"

"I began with Ashworth several years ago, and finally graduated recently with a 4.0,with an applied science degree in Psych. Some of these courses are self paced, which is great for us older peeps....because life got in the way several times while I was working so hard on trying to obtain my degree. I just kept plugging away. The courses themselves were VERY challenging and fun. The books arrived in a timely manner....customer service was adequate. They do have tutors which will call you and help you if you have any issues or problems understanding your courses. The monthly payment was a great addition and I have already paid off my loan to them. What you have to remember is this is an on line course, which is not as involved as actually being on a campus somewhere. But the courses seem adequate and are great for people who just don't have time for a college campus or a college life. Ashworth is an accredited school, however, transferring courses should be really looked into before signing any papers with this school. They make this quite clear in their paperwork, but I noticed many complaints from people who signed and just did not do their homework and felt that they should be able to transfer previous courses or something of that nature. Also, you have to remember, this is not Harvard; but the classes like I said, are very challenging, and fun to learn. I have nothing negative to say about Ashworth and have appreciated that opportunity to finally get my degree! This is something that I just wanted to do for myself! I think you will enjoy the school so be prepared to apply yourself"

"Ashworth College allowed me to reach my goals in my career . I was not that guy who was going to finish college, that was until I met Ashworth College. Ashworth college gives students the flexibility to finish school at your own pace. The tuition is very affordable. The school is nationally accredited which means it is accredited by the board of education. I currently work as a Detective in NYC. I am a law enforcement officer because of schools like Ashworth college. I started with pennfoster college became a cop and finished with ashworth college and received my associates. I will pursue my bachelors with Ashworth in the near future."

"It's the cheapest, fully accredited college online. DETC is recognized by the US Department of Education and CHEA, making it absolutely legitimate. I picked Ashworth as my college of choice not only for the unbeatable tuition, but the convenience of studying when I can - I work three jobs, I would never have had time to make for school if it was scheduled. I looked into other Universities online regarding transferring for my Bachelor's, but why would I? Most of the cheapest colleges online are equally accredited by DETC/CHEA, so why would I pay a bit more to go to another college with the same accreditation and the same degrees? I know Regionally Accredited is the "bee's knees" regarding education, but the truth is that a lot of us don't have the finances (nor the desire to) take out a loan or make huge payments per month. This college is a godsend to those of us who are struggling to get by, who want an education to help us out in our career goals. On a side note, ever since obtaining my education, I've received numerous county job interviews. I'm currently being processed as a Detention Services Officer with the county I'm in, in California. If anything, Ashworth College is not just a quality education, it looks great on your resume to employers showing you took the time to even get a degree in the first place!"

"I am currently enrolled in Ashworth College working on my BA in General Business Studies and I LOVE IT!! Ashworth is considered self learning and they are very upfront about it upon enrollment. I have noticed a definite strengthening of academic requirements since my initial enrollment in 2012. I am currently taking my Gen Ed Biology and I have 2 4-page essays to write for this course! I am impressed. I started college back in 1987 as a college prep school graduate---but quickly burnt out. I am finding self learning at home with Ashworth more rewarding and more informative and educational than any brick and mortar school I attended. I love that Ashworth offers a graduation ceremony and I fully intend to walk across that stage in cap, gown and honor cord. I highly recommend Ashworth for the self motivated person who prefers to learn on their own without having to attend classes, lectures etc."

"I currently attend this school and there is a lot of debate over whether its worth it to go to this school, I have to say i have never had issues with the staff or advisors, the advisors have been polite and professional from the beginning explaining every step of my education to me, and as for the price, I think you have to know what fits your needs. I was willing to pay a little more than what I would normally pay for a community college because it allowed me to pursue an education from home, and not compromise the quality time I spend with my children. This college isn't for everyone, you have to asses your own needs but it definitely benefitted me by allowing me to get my education at home and not compromise the time I spend with my kids as a stay at home mother :)"
