Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

Ashworth is the worst online college you can attend. Why? Because they add on thousands to your bill that shouldn't even be there, lie. manipulate. And when you're complete they don't send a diploma or even transcript until you pay 12,000$ and more...! For what? Nobody ever knows, save your money and go somewhere else, ANYWHERE else. Will advise everyone I know never to go here.

Degree: Medical Transcription/Transcriptionist
Graduation Year: 2018

I took the medical transcription course. The reasons I do not recommend this college are the following: 1. Outdated materials. I was sent a medical dictionary from 1998. There is a program that is mentioned throughout the book, and I spent a lot of time trying to get it to work, only to find out that I didnt need it, though it probably would have worked with the foot pedal they sent. 2. Instructors dont have any contact information so I couldnt email and ask questions. I had to rely on representatives (they were nice) for that program issue previously mentioned. The ticket system is useless. It would take over a week to get a response and even then, it was absolutely no help. Theyd always say there wasnt enough information but wouldnt ask for it and close the ticket, saying the matter was resolved. Id have to figure things out for myself. I also sent an email AGES ago that still hasnt been responded to. 3. The quizzes were simple and hardly covered any of the material in the book. They didnt quiz on actual transcription, just medical information. There was no transcription practice anywhere that could be graded by an instructor and handed in. They provided exercises and the answers but I would have liked to have been able to contact a professor with any questions I had. So I had to figure out the final project by myself, which the foot pedal would have helped with but it wouldnt work, so I had to do everything manually. 4. Theyre holding my certificate hostage until everything is paid in full, so until then, I have to settle for a letter of completion. I completed the certification with a 4.00, spent countless nights studying and reading until 2-3am knowing I would have to wake up at 7-8am for my kid. I would like to have something to show for it other than a letter of completion. All in all, if I could give this college a negative, I would. Do not recommend one bit.

Degree: Floral Design
Graduation Year: 2017

This place is a huge scam! They tell you one thing and do the complete opposite. Never send you supplies or books you pay for then keep wanting more and more money from you. Student services is a joke. I called to ask a few questions about some accounting issues and I was literally called a liar and told that I was making things up and did not know what I was talking about. I would not recommend to anyone.

Called before enrolling asked if the school is regionally acredited! The reapresentative said yes ( lied) ! Signed up and started my online classes! Found out I was lied too and they are not regionally acredited! I spoke with student advisor and he accepted my cancellation! He said I would receive email of cancellation and get my money back in 7-14 business days ! Im still waiting for my cancellation email! Each one of the reps I spoke with lied to me! I do not recommend it!

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2018

I can't believe the time wasted on all the tests and assignments completed and yet, I need a proctor to babysit me taking a final exam. I found out when I completed that I needed proctoring and they have to review it. The person on the phone was sarcastic when I mentioned on being unaware. Everyone writing a review studied and devoted time and money to this school! It's only a certificate program! I don't understand the reasoning for a proctor when I'm an adult taking a certificate program! Well, lost money and lots and lots of time and hard research all wasted.

Degree: Locksmith
Graduation Year: 2017

They are a legal scammer. I ask for a course and they sent me a book for material that has nothing to see. And a dam test you have to take. When I tried to call them for help they just tell you the same you was already trying to do and you couldn't. Even I said I couldn't understand the program they offered me to close my account but by paying $'300.00 cancellation fees. For one week I only logged in to they sistem 6 times trying to understand they none sence. For me I didn't take any credit from them they end up sending to the credit because I didn't pay for what I didn't used. They don't care about ppl education, they just care about how they force you to pay

Degree: Pharmacy Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

I started the pharmacy technician course in 2017 and finished it within a few months. I have been waiting for almost a year for the promised externship. They keep making excuses saying that there are no externship positions open at this time. I am not willing to pay the $700 for this course because it is beyond ridiculous. They treat you like dirt and do not give what they promise. Their customer service is terrible and they just want your money. I will NEVER recommend this school to anyone! I already filed a BBB complaint because I feel scammed out of a lot of money. I went out on my own to find an externship and no one would take me. I will not pay a cent more to this scam of a program because I feel like I learned nothing and they have done nothing to advance my career as promised.

Degree: Locksmithing and Safe Repair
Graduation Year: 2018

After completing this course from Ashworth, I've now completed over a dozen online high school, college and trade courses from 5 different institutions. I can confidently say that Ashworth is by far the worst experience I've had, hands down. The technology is out of date, the support is almost non-existent and the tools that they supply are laughably cheap. Under absolutely no circumstances would I ever recommend Ashworth College to another student in any field. There will ALWAYS be better options. Even if they are literally the only school that offers a program, you can save $500+ dollars by just buying the exact same textbooks, practice materials and certification exams on other websites. The only things you'll miss are the generic, poorly worded multiple choice quizzes and long periods of waiting while their materials are on "backorder".

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2018

I have had the worst experience with this school. When I have questions my instructor never calls me back or emails me back. So I am paying all this money for a school where you have no help, nobody ever calls you back, when instead I could have got a grant or some help to pay for a much better school that you have help anytime instead of feeling like your just wasting your time and money. My advice, pick a different school to go to.
