FOR A COURSE WHICH IS SUPPOSED TO BE COMPLETED WITHIN A YEAR, THEY FAILED TO SEND ALL MY MATERIALS ON TIME. THE COURSE I AM TAKING REQUIRES 4 BOOKS WHICH ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SUPPLIED BY THE SCHOOL AND WHICH WERE A PART OF MY TUITION, THEY SENT 1 BOOK ON TIME AND THE OTHER 3 ARE ON BACK ORDER AND CAN TAKE APPROX 5 MONTHS BEFORE THEY ARRIVE. THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, I AM 50% COMPLETED WITH MY COURSE AND NEED THE OTHER BOOKS IN ORDER COMPLETE FULLY AND NOW I HAVE TO HOLD OFF ON COMPLETING MY COURSE UNTIL THEY GET THE MATERIALS WHICH IS ALREADY PAID FOR. UNBELIEVABLE.
In the beginning there is always someone to answer your call, as it got toward the end, I submitted an assignment and it wasn't graded for 4 weeks, it took 3 days just to get someone on the line. I sent support tickets and the issue wasn't resolved until finally one day I just sat on the phone on hold for over 45 minutes and was able to explain. So they finally graded my assignment and ended my course, I haven't heard anything else since. Not sure when I will receive this Certificate?? It's like you are just sitting out in space waiting on a shooting star. I definitely won't do any more certificates with them, and clearly wouldn't advise doing college courses with them. Stick with the Professionals on that one. Currently I sent a ticket and am still waiting on the outcome of when I will receive my certificate....You have to have a lot of Patience when dealing with this so called school. Don't be snowed over by the way they are when they are enrolling you. It doesn't last.
This is good for one like me works three jobs and school same time . This is a good school they work with you . It took me 4 years or so to pay them off but I did it. Im retried law enforcement and still in the military part time . As long you pay this school on time your ok.
Will not help with internship placement or job placement. Big waste of time and money. Internship hours are required for certification which they wont assist. Hospitals contract with schools for internships. We were lied to!!! The course work alone will not land you job in this field.
This is one of the most inexpensive college certificate programs yet it takes way too long to process the certificate and the promised portions of the certificate. You are looking more to graduate within 6 months or more, so the 4 months is advertised to market and prey upon your desire to finish quickly and without having to pay much. Customer service is not their strongest attribute of the school and you get what you pay for. There's a reason why it's cheaper than most programs. After being in this program it actually deterred me from pursuing a career in this field and now I'm thinking about doing something else. I wouldn't recommend it. Even though it may sound like I'm being overly critical is a reality that you might face with this program. I'm sure that their career service representatives cover a broad spectrum of degrees and programs.
I am so disappointed about my diploma because I couldn't find any job with it. I am living in Alberta and my province couldn't accept my diploma even I tried to transfer it from Toronto to Alberta. And I tried to connect with Vancouver. I received the same results. I recommend everyone who is trying or studying at this school like don't waste your time and money at this school. Because you couldn't find any job with this.
They are very rude and professional when you call for help. I waited 2 weeks for a call back only to be talked to like a child. The attitude was completely unnecessary and I will NEVER do another online class with them. They are so helpful and friendly when they are enrolling you, but anything else they are rude and could care less
Ashworth is an affordable online college that will give you a degree if you persist through the program, however, be aware that Ashworth is a very unprofessional choice for online college. I have been through so many unnecessary problems throughout the 3 years that I have been enrolled that it has gotten to the point of complete ridiculousness. Every other book is back ordered and will take sometimes many months to ever get. You are only able to have 2 courses open at a time so when those 2 courses are finished, you have to wait an amazing amount of time to get papers graded and returned to you to be able to move on. This causes you to take much longer than expected to finish your degree. My degree took at least 6 months longer than I planned it out to be because I was simply not able to move forward because I was constantly waiting on their end. This is very frustrating when you are trying to move into a career where a degree is mandatory. The staff who answer the phone do not care one bit about your frustration and are very unprofessional.
I requested for my transcripts to be sent to my current college. After speaking to someone on the phone, the process was handled and my payment for the transcripts were processed. 2 Months went by and my new college had not received the transcripts yet. I called Ashworth back and their response was that they could not provide my transcripts because I had a past due amount. That part is understood however, what happened to my original request? Everyone I speak to is very unprofessional and I do not get the same answer from anyone. This is a major problem.
The school appears to be everything at first, until you start having to deal with the unprofessional BS. Seems that every book is on back order even up to 8 months, if you purchase your book they wont reimburse you, also they tend to lie about how much the cost of the program is and keep going up on your tuition. Now if you can get the tuition paid everything would be fine but thats the hardest part because they keep sending you a prior semester lease to sign before the previous is paid off going up on your payments... that's their scheme to get more money and make you say forget it.
