Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (309)
The instructors take forever to get back to you and if you have to call in, the people that answer the phone are obnoxious. Education aside, this is one school that could use a major overhaul when it comes to customer service. The only time anyone has been nice to me when I have called in was when I was enrolling. I would spend my money elsewhere if I knew then what I know now.
I'm actually still working on my bachelors. Just a heads up if you see you only made a certain grade and wanna better it they will not honor your grade. Its a huge slap in your face. Especially after you wasted your time and not to mention how much money you wasted on this school. Im only accepting the final scores i made i will Not accept the way they grade. I have proof of the 100% i got. I no longer recommend this school to my friends and family. Im sorry i chose this when i could have paid for a more honorable school.
They lie and cheat they take your money then find excuses why you cant graduate..teachers are rude never explain anything..never helped out..waste of money and my time..lost $ 700.00.they are heartless..I could of saved that money for my kids.
I had an awesome experience with this school.There's nothing wrong with Ashworth College. The material is very clear and easy to understand and it is very affordable. Some of you guys need to focus on how to properly construct a sentence before complaining.
If I could give zero stars I would. My book have been delayed for weeks,called customer services they are no help. Staff are very rude and incompetent, save your money. They might be cheap but that comes with frustration and headache. Choose a different online college guys not Ashworth.
Ashworth College was a great option for me and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for an education. My employer also provided tuition reimbursement for my degree because Ashworth is an accredited institution. I had no trouble transferring credits into Ashworth and no trouble using my BA from Ashworth as the foundation for my MA and PhD studies.
Ashworth is a great choice for someone who is looking to finish their degree and are already in an established career needing a Bachelor's Degree for career advancement. I needed to finish my degree as I already had over half the credits required to complete a Bachelors Degree. Ashworth is a great value for the money but NOT a college for someone right out of High School or, as stated in other reviews, an institution for technical careers that have specific requirements. Additionally, Ashworth's curriculum is 100% self directed which requires a greater amount of focus. I personally have tried several online schools and must say that Ashworth's online materials, library and delivery of materials is exceptional at a fraction of the cost. The staff at Ashworth are not really that helpful and their skills are a little rough around the edges and not your typical employee at a higher education institution. If you limit your communications to online chats then you wont be as frustrated with what appears to be individuals who have only a high school education.. PROS: Affordable, Flexible payment plan, Full pay of tuition discount, accredited, self directed, online flexibility, excellent resources including library, good introductory courses CONS: Self directed, Tech/Computer courses outdated, not regionally accredited, Staff, Will not transfer credits received over 10 years prior
Be aware before taking this course Ashworth IS NOT a approved program by AHDI It will be a waste of your money Which is the reason why they are a lot cheaper than the other approved programs Please visit the website for AHDI to get the list of approved programs And than when I called Ashworth college lady was very rude when I confronted her saying they were not approved Be aware your course won't be worth anything and will be a waste of miney
If you are already in a field or aiming towards one as you are working full-time this will be for you. Obviously, many are going to argue to not do it because it is not regionally accredited. I must say none of my employers were concerned or questioned me regarding my degree. You will thrive if you are serious and positive. You must, however, understand that you have to study. This school offers books, testing, paperwork submission and best is you can do it at your own pace. We are not all made to be in a classroom. Society keeps pushing us to be all the same and we are just not. Thank you, Ashworth, for offering this and I am sure in time you will rise to the standards of being regionally accredited. For the critics, many multi-millionaires did not even have a degree.
I am working towards my Associates Degree in Psychology. I am on my final course of my 1st semester and so far so good. I will apologize in advance because this will probably be lengthy, but I wanted to base this on my experience thus far. 1st, do research regarding the requirements needed for the job/field you are working towards. Ashworth is accredited, but they are nationally accredited and not regionally. Several fields require regionally accredited degree's. Most regionally accredited colleges require the coursework to come from a regionally accredited school if you are looking for transfer credit, but some regionally accredited schools will still accept the nationally accredited courses. 2nd, you have to do the work and be self disciplined enough to hold your self personally accountable for accomplishments or failures. 3rd, like any for profit school, business, or organization employee's are not always happy in their professional setting. (I am stating that fact based on all of the negative reviews I have seen on numerous sites.) I personally have NOT had any issues with the staff. I had to send tickets regarding my transcript and both were responded to within 48 hours. My books shipped within 72 hours of completion of my previous course. My instructors graded my assignments within 48-72 hours as well. I can honestly say, that I wish I would have discovered this school years ago when I attempted online classes with my local college. Working a full time job and being a single mother does not allow much time for studies of multiple classes, so needles to say I only stuck it out for one semester. I am close to 40 now and wanting to change careers, this goal would have already been accomplished had I found Ashworth years ago. This is what I have discovered on a personal level, for those that are on the fence about the school, start with your Associate Degree to see if you like the school. I have started with my Associate, after a ton of research, I have decided to transfer to Western Governors once the Ashworth degree is complete. From all of the information I have found they will accept the Ashworth credits, which means I will start at WGY with several classes out of the way. I have been in the financial industry for almost 20 years, so I will go after my Bachelors in Business at WGU and return to Ashworth for my Bachelor of Psychology after that. WGU is regionally accredited and the University of Alabama will accept their degree/course work. My end goal is to become a school counselor. The UAB offers a Masters in Educational Psychology even if your Bachelor degree is in Business. In my state we are short staffed on teachers in certain counties, so if you have a Bachelors degree in another field they will still allow you to teach under a temporary certificate (to avoid student teaching). With all of that being said, my goal is to obtain as much knowledge as I can in psychology and then apply that to an educational career change. My whole point to all of this .... go after your dreams, do not base your decision on what someone else says. Not everyone will have a great or good experience, but you never know unless you try. I firmly believe, based on my current experience, Ashworth is just the stepping stone I need to achieve my end goals. I would recommend this school for those that are mature and responsible enough to do the research on their job requirements/certifications and self sufficient enough to complete their assignments.
