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
Ashworth is a terrible online school. I have been lied to multiple times, I have been sent from representative to representative. Every single word that was said from start to finish had s been a complete lie. I would never recommend Ashworth to anyone.
I did not graduate from this program. After my initial problems accessing the student portal and lack of support, I contacted them to cancel my enrollment. And since then, for 4 months, I have received numerous bills. And they state now I owe $400. I did not complete anything past the initial intro course due to technical difficulties. I would not recommend this school to anyone.
Dear Future Student: I have found Ashworth College Early Childhood Degree to be worthless!!!! In actuality it is a worthless piece of paper that cost thousands of dollars and countless hours to obtain. Ashworth College knows most states require them to teach using an accredited education program in order for their education degree to work in various sates like the one I reside in. They offered no disclaimer saying it did not teach from NAEYC. By having NAEYC accreditation (which stands for National Association of Education for the Young Child.) This would allow me to teach Early Childhood with my degree until I take the teachers exam. If I knew they didn't meet the national educational curriculum preferred I never would have waisted my time! Ashworth did not meet those standards or even comply with the minimum requirements that asked them to place the College embossed seal on my Enrollment Verification Form stating that I did in fact complete my Bachelors's Degree there and graduated! After several certified requests sent by mail this summer they are yet to respond to my request!For months They have been giving me the run around about completing the necessary paperwork needed for me to pursue my teaching career. I have a thick file now of communication from registrars office to Chief Academic Officer to the President and I'm still awaiting paperwork to be filled out and returned. Months of certified letters sent, but they keep stalling! Why? Because their degree program has proven to not meet the requirements! Buyer beware!!!!Before you consider any educational degree check your state requirements first, like so many out there we found out too late! It's no good to you job wise, not even worth the paper it's printed on!!! I hope to sue them in the near future for every dime I spent! Big waste of time and money!
This 'school' is beyond a waste of money, I've been waiting 5 weeks since I completed my last class to receive the text book for the next class. You are more likely to be bitten by a great white shark in the desert than to speak with someone useful when you call customer service. On numerous occasions the answers to the quiz questions have been dead wrong, directly contradicting the CDC. Do not waste your time or money, you'll learn nothing.
Terrible... the program I was given did not match the program I was given. Faulty emails sent about materials being shipped before I started that never arrived delaying the start to the program. Then to find out I was not getting materials for the first part of the program. Since this was so disorganized and confusing I decided to cancel my program... which apparently got messed up too... Now being charged over $200 to cancel a program I was never able to start onto received materials for. VERY DISSAPOINTED.
WORST SCHOOL EVER! no help whatsoever, credits transfer no where if you're wanting to get your associates degree and continue to another school like I did they only want your money!!! $600 cancelation fee charged to me after I found out how terrible of a school they are! DO NOT ENROLL HERE
This School obviously only cares about the pass or fail, and does not give much thought to the actual quality of education. Every single class is formatted basically the same way, not matter if it is English or science. They even have a speech class that does not have you actually give a speech. My main reason for disliking the course is the fact that you have three tries on every assignment, however only the first passing grade counts. You cannot retake in order to achieve a higher score on any assignment you take for your entire course load. If you do fail an assignment, all that happens once you pass is you receive a 60 no matter what the score. All in all, you get what you paid for, if that.
Ashworth college is absolutely the worst place to call a school of education. It is horrible. Anyone who has anything remotely good to say about them is either crazy or lying. They seem to be rude to people just because they enjoy it. They send books for the wrong classes and then don't understand why you would be frustrated. I don't think half of the teachers even hold a bachelor's degree let alone a Ph.D. I think this school is in it for the money only and they could care less about the students. Did you ever notice your grades are wrong on tests and they don't even want to fix them. Whenever you have to get something corrected they somehow try to change it to be your fault. I wish I re thought this whole process before starting with them. I don't care if it takes me another two years, I will start over with a school who is at least on the up and up and knows what they are doing. Ashworth college is a sham and they should be closed down. I am surprised they haven't been yet. Anyone one who has anything remotely good to say about this place is crazy. They are rude, demeaning and they talk to you like they have no common sense. It feels sometimes as if they want you to get a bad grade. This school is a big ripoff and should be put out of business.
I'll make this short and sweet... Prospective students, please do your homework and read through some of these comments. There is a reason why people take time out of their life to warn others of Ashworth College. Sure there are good and bad comments...but there are a lot of bad comments. Yes, the school is Nationally Accredited, which is actually held to a lower standard than Regionally Accredited schools. Yes, it's accrediting agency is recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Education (search for yourself). However, if your occupation requires any sort of licensing - YOU ARE OUT OF LUCK. Also, if you plan to transfer your undergraduate credits to a regionally accredited school - GOOD LUCK - In my opinion, 8 out of 10 regionally accredited schools will not accept credits from a nationally accredited school. I'd say 9.5 out of 10 will not accept Ashworth's credits. How do I know? Because I spent a very long time reading transfer policies and talking to admissions counselors at various schools around the U.S. One school in Missouri flat out said, "We won't accept anything from Ashworth." Ashworth College is cheap, yes, but you get what you pay for - EXTREMELY little if any interaction from professors. The feedback you receive on assignments is maybe two sentences. Ashworth College being "FOR PROFIT" should say it all.
