Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (293)
Terrible, misleading I did not receive adequate info to complete the course. I was totally confused. Gave 30 days to cancel and later told 5 days . This company wants to charge &368 to cancel. Never received any books. I did not like the customer service.
The degree that I studied and worked hard to earn is worthless. The credits do not transfer to even a community college. I am going to have to start from the beginning and earn the same degree again before I can move forward. This college is a joke. I was ripped off for my time and my money. Thanks for robbing me, Ashworth College.
2014..HAA..PROGRAM THAT I HAD TO RETAKE IN MY STATE FOR LIKE 800 DOLLARS...ACWORTH WANT ME TO PAY FOR THE SAME DEGREE which is not valid in my state it is not worth the piece of paper it will be printed on! They are a multi-million dollar company who wants to take advantage of..paid for the same program twice in the same year...POOR SCHOOL STICK TO PENN FOSTER OR UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX FOR DISTANCE LEARNING
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.
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.
