"This school is a "For Profit" institution, they don't care if you get your degree or not. At the end of the day they only want their money! I just graduated from Ashworth College this month. They took two weeks to grade a mandatory assignment on more than one occasion. They also won't contact you if fail the assignment or test. You basically have to stay on them to all the time. I totally missed being able to sign up for the graduation ceremony because of this reason. I finished my last class on May 6th and they didn't grade my final semester exam until the end of June. You have to be finished by June to sign up for the graduation ceremony or you can't attend. Pennfoster now owns Ashworth College as of January 2019. So don't go there thinking you will have a better experience than at Ashworth, because they're the same. If i could do it all over again I would have went to Capella or WGU instead of wasting my time with Ashworth. My experience was not a good one over the past several years and I've read similar experiences from other students. Ashworth get your act together and treat your students better! This is a honest review from a current July 2019 graduate!"

"I like the lessons and everything, but the course had 2 cons: - The textbooks they send you are parts photocopied from a book and made into several books. They come in a spiral binding. Definitely not worth the money you're paying for them. - Student support is extremely slow. You usually wait for about 2 weeks to a month to get a very short answer. Other than that, it was all fun."

"OMG.....stay away from this POS school. Everything is great for the first semester. Customer service is on the money and taken care of business and helping you every which way they can. By semester 4, you can't even get in touch with them. Have to call (or submit online help tickets) 3,4, 5 times just to get assistance. Final grades are wrong, billing is wrong, and you will end up calling them or the VA every month to keep your GI Bill payments current. If you are looking for cheap and easy...this is the school for you. However, this really is the "you get what you pay for" school. GARBAGE!!"

"Ashworth College is not a “college.” Google their address and you will find the “school” is an office building. The tutors are a complete joke. Math question? “Joe” will help you. Psychology question? “Joe” also knows the answer. The tutors are apparently well-versed in every subject area...such a joke. Many federal lawsuits in the past. If you want to LEARN, go elsewhere."

"I don't suggest taking any classes at Ashworth unless you like being ignored and having your assignments changed on you last minute with no explanation I was enrolled in the graphics design program with really wasn't worth taking anyways I learned more on my own with YouTube and most of the videos you watch for the program are actually links to YouTube videos I paid for the program all together at the start bc I didn't want to worry about payments and even though i wasn't learning much i paid for it so was going to complete it all was fine until the very last assignment with was a hand made portfolio website made in adobe muse and i worked on it for months bc i had time i had months left until my dead line and then all the sudden i received a email telling me i had until the end of the week to finish my course so I worked all night to finish up my portfolio assignment and when i went to submit it the next day the assignment had changed and was supposed to be made with adobe portfolio witch in didn't have access too and you have to buy the complete adobe cc studio to use with is around $500 so i emailed my professor and never got a response and two days later my class suddenly expired so now if i want my degree i have to pay another $100 to turn in one assignment iv tried to call the school multiple times and every time i get told its not a active or valid phone number and iv also emailed and have received no reply and live chat just gives me the same inactive phone number"

"I came in Ashworth college with some credits from GA Piedmont Technical College and University of Phoenix. I saw that the tuition was perfect for me. I was doubting at the beginning regarding to all the bad reviews I read about the college. But I am a Christian and before any decision, I pray and I receive my confirmation before starting. I therefore prayed with my pastor and receive a peace and a joy. I started my Bachelor Program on the 30th of June 2016 with Ashworth and complete my program on the 25th of May 2019. My husband been deployed in Kuwait, I was left with my 3 kids and Ashworth was a perfect choice for my situation because of the flexibility offered by the online degree program. In this day, I am the happiest because I was able to pay my tuition off, my degree program is complete and I am ready for my graduation in August. I spoke with some universities that accept already waiting me for my transcript to go for my master degree in International Relation and Diplomacy. Thank you Ashworth whishing you all the best from God. Without you, I could not achieve my goal."

"Defiantly DO NOT go with them if youre expecting your externship to be started in a timely manner, I have already had to pay an extension fee due to them not being able to place me in my desire location yet they failed to let me know until I contacted them 4 weeks later (because I was told, give them 4-6 weeks to place me) so now I went and found my own location, which I was in contact with the man who was supposed to arrange it with the pharmacy, well I was told 4 weeks ago I would receive a call back, still no call, I try to call back the number he called me on and it doesnt receive calls it can only make calls, I have emailed numerous times and no reply, they are VERY unprofessional, the pharmacy is just waiting for them to contact them so I can get stared and Ive just been waiting and waiting. Every time I call to talk to the man I need to, I only get the ignorant academic advisors, that have no earthly idea about what to do other than to email the man. THEY DONT EVEN HAVE A NUMBER TO REACH HIM EITHER.?? Like are you kidding me? BIGEST WAIST OF MONEY. By the way when the guy in charge contacted me 4 weeks ago he told me it would just be a week or so until he got my all set up.. a month later and Im still waiting to here something? They shouldnt be able to waste anyone elses time or money, also youre on a time schedule to get your program done and if you dont finish within the time frame you have to pay an extension fee of 95 dollars, I just received and email that in 60 days Ill have to pay for another extension fee because they wont call me back and get my program started. This is a JOKE. They are just trying to prolong so I will have to pay another extension fee on top of the 699 I already payed. Nothing but a money hungry site. STAY AWAY!!!"

"I enrolled in their CDA program. I completed some work, but decided to cancel the day after because my company told me that this is not one of the colleges that they're partnered with, in order to get tuition reimbursement. In the policy, it states that if you cancel within the first 5 days, you will receive a 100% refund. I didn't receive a refund, and now they're trying to tell me that I owe them a balance of $130, WHAT? Keep in mind that I was on a payment plan for $599 (the total cost of the course), and had only made my first payment of $20. My next payment was due a month from then. Since I cancelled the course, I should not have to owe anything and I should have been submitted my refund of $20. I will be leaving every bad review about this company, as well as taking the proper precautions to sue them. THE WORST college and not even accredited, save your time and money!"

"Before enrolling I Specifically asked if we get a hard cover book as well and I was told yes. Online the program tuition states with the fee that you receive a hardcover book and so does it state it when you complete lesson 2. Apparently you don't. They told me after I paid my tuition and already started the program. Once you reach lesson 4, it only gives you an overview of what you are going to learn, and tells you (to read the chapters in your hardcover). I had to spend additional money buying a hardcover book as lesson 4 exam questions are NOT covered in the lesson as they should be. If I would have known this, I would had gone with another school that offers the actual book for the price your paying."

"This is not a school. It's a non regionally accredited money funnel. Ashworth just wants to take your money. The materials are extremely outdated. Be warned by the reviews, I wish I did. I withdrew after I was asked for additional money for an extension. They are still illegally removing money from my bank account. My contact magical went up after I withdrew. Everything about this place should scream red flag."
