I like how they have their material setup for the technician courses but like the others have stated there isnt any interaction between the students and the staff members. I guess its a good thing I can teach myself and it has also helped that I work with professors that can help me out but still, for the money they want from you they should be able to help you along and thus far they havent. I have gone through almost the entire thing w/o any help from the staff
I am a "pioneer" student from Ashworth. I completed my H.S. diploma, earned my Associate's Degree in Business Management, and was able to transfer 100% of my credits to a regionally accredited university for my Bachelor's Degree program. They were nationally accredited by the DETC in 2000, I started the Business program in 2001. I stopped working for about 4-1/2 years half way through the 4th semester. Earlier this year, I finally finished it!
Tuition is considerably low compared to all other schools. Ashworth charges $80 per credit hour; whereas, schools like Univ. of Phoenix, Rasmussen, DeVry, Kaplan, Embry-Riddle, Judson, etc. charge $550 or more!!! These schools are also nationally accredited. When it all boils down to it; however, an employer (esp. if it's a large company) are more likely to accept degrees from regionally accredited colleges. Though Ashworth is nationally accredited, it's a great choice to work at your own pace. You should ensure your employer, or potential employer, will take degrees from these kind of schools. If not, your wasting your money, regardless of the low tuition.
I was very satisfied with Ashworth College. I graduated in March 2009 and the decision I made to get my studies from Ashworth was the best. I could study and my own time and take my exams at any time of the day or night. The payment plan also helped alot. I would recommend this College to anyone wanting to strive in life.
I just finished the online program for pharmacy tech. The reading material was good but the training sucked because there was none . They don't even help you get the next level or tell what to do .
This school was very helpful anytime I had questions they were there to answer. Took me a while to finish because of working full time but they let me work at my pace.
The pluses: Affordable, a lot of choices, could finish classes at my own pace, actually more difficult than the brick and mortar schools as you have to be very independent and motivated.
The minuses: As a nationally accredited school, many regionally accredited schools will not accept the credits. Really ridiculous since NATIONAL accredidation is more stringent than regional. It makes no sense.
The coursework is the same as any school, not as much writing of papers per se but as you are basically teaching yourself with little guidance it can be very difficult for people who need a lot of help.
My overall experience has been positive but I am concerned about the transfer of my hard earned credits!
I was a little disappointed in the professor interaction because there was none. I remember calling to ask a question and I never got the answer to my question, and the staff could never put me through to my professor.
The material was for the most part well written, but there were some mistakes in the material written.
I have yet to receive my diploma, although, I just finished paying for the course, but I guess I will have to call and ask where my diploma is.
I have completed a certificate course in Paralegal Stdies, and I almost finished with an Associate Degree with a major in Accounting through Ashworth University. I have recently found employment because of my schooling from Ashworth Univesity
Hi, i would like to say that Ashworth University helped me get my life back, they helped me get my high school diploma. I am now going to to go for my bachelors degree in criminal justice and i also got a medical billing and coding certificate from them. They are awesome and they're great with their rates and they also work with you with lowering your monthly payments if you cannot make ends meet. I will definitely recommend them to anybody. Thanks Ashworth for helping me get a better future for me and my family
I started the first part of January in the Accounting Certificate Program and I am almost completed. I have so much experience in Accounting that it came easily to me, but all I needed was the certification. Now I am in the BA program in Business Admin. Ashworth has been great and the books are easy to understand; they have so much information that you can use in your day to day functions at work. I would highly recommend this College for anyone that works full time. You can do this at your own pace and get as much done as quickly as you would like... Very affordable education and I did a lot of research, and this is the best for the money...
