I didn't actually graduate because this school is a scam. I aced my classes within a week of receiving my books- but they stopped sending my books. Of course, they still wanted me to continue to pay. I gave them a month to start sending my books again, but they never did so I stopped sending them $. They sent me to collections. NONE of those credits transferred anywhere. I called all over.
RUN AWAY. This is not a regionally accredited school Let me repeat, NOT REGIONALLY ACCREDITED! Save yourself the money, time & headaches & seek another school. They may be DEAC accredited but I can assure most employers will not accept this degree. You totally get what you pay for & no wonder why its so cheap.
This School is a scam , please be aware . They didnt even send me the supplys needed for my class but yet some how they said i completed 50 percent which is a lie. I paid 600 bucks just to cancel what i didnt even get to start. The conned me out of money, do not be a fool like i was . do not go to this school go to penn foster where they have real teachers that actually contact you.
Ashworth is the worst online college you can attend. Why? Because they add on thousands to your bill that shouldn't even be there, lie. manipulate. And when you're complete they don't send a diploma or even transcript until you pay 12,000$ 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.
I applied too Ashworth from PCDI Canada I put 300 dollars down and 4 days later realized this was not the one for me the did not give me back my money and they made it impossible for me to get a hold of anyone . Did not return no emails.so when finally I got a hold of somone they said they will do a review took 15O from me and the other 150 I have no clue where it is.
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 Outdated materials.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.
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!
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.
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
