I would like to add my review regarding Ashworth College. I have been with James Madison High School and Ashworth College for 5 years now. I have not once been treated poorly by my teachers and i always received a reply in a timely manner. I see that many reviews are not covering the course work and are instead covering customer service. My material has always been the most recent. I have had zero issues when it came to my textbooks. All the material was relevant and orderly. My course work is great and i enjoy the overall layout. I am part of the honors society and i would like to point out that i still am able to be challenged with my work load. It isn't too easy nor is it too hard. Now let me cover the customer service aspect of this school. Yes, i have dealt with two not-so-friendly representatives and i made a report and they were dealt with accordingly. That was 3 years ago and i have never had an issue since. I pay my tuition in full every semester and have no been hit with any fees that were not disclosed in the student handbook. I truly enjoy this school and the online community! I do recommend this institution to anyone who wants an affordable, flexible and accredited education.
This college is not only much cheaper than other colleges, it also has other benefits. The program they use for classes is much better than the program my local communtiy college uses. The books are included in the price and they arrive quickly after you complete the previous course. The only thing I think they could do better is add more Bachelor's degrees and change the name of the ebusiness program to management information systems because it is the exact same program as other colleges. If you notice all the negative reviews on here are people complaining about having to pay. Yes you have to be responsible and pay your tuition and fees...weird. I would probably normally rate it with 4 stars just based on the lack of more degree options, but I'm making it 5 stars to counter the fake reviews from people who don't want to pay their bills.
I am a real student who also has a review on Barton Com. College where I got my associates degree. I work in the mental health field and need education in psychology. I read the reviews and was very nervous about getting my undergraduate certificate from Ashworth College but because of the low cost I gave it a try. The books were on time, every time I called customer service my call was answered within 5 minutes. They were polite and the education was the same I got with my regionally accredited degree. Everything I was told about this college in negative reviews was a lie. I am very impressed with Ashworth College and I would recommend them to others.
I've read a lot of negative reviews and decided to post a positive one. I enrolled in Medical Coding/Billing and successfully completed it with GPA 3.7, higher than my undergrad GPA. I took this programs to add to my degree in Social Work and to gain more knowledge within the field of medical billing. I've had nothing but good results from this educational institution. I've received my materials in a timely manner, assignments were graded and recorded in the same fashion. When i had an issue or need to speak with someone regarding my course work i submitted a ticket and someone responded promptly.The only issue i faced was receiving my diploma after completing my course, i'm sure it was due to so many students graduating and my lack of patience. With that being said, I enjoyed my education experience at Ashworth and I'm considering returning for my Master's Degree. Not to mention graduating debt free.
The program is very thorough. I saw another review that was bad. Its like the millionth one. I agree with some of these reviews that say the reviews that are bad are usually from people who are having problems on the phone or with their payments. Because once you actually do the course it is great. Very structured, well put together. My wife is in the Medical Billing and Coding. She loves it but says it needs a bit updating because TRUMP being in office changes alot of this information. He has taken away many programs. It just needs to be updated, we notice the dates mentioned are 2010-2014 and 2015 in some cases. Needs to be current. Beyond that, it is an inexpensive school, a good school and we are happy.
I keep seeing bad reviews but some of ya'll aren't reviewing the course. Your reviewing the customer service people on the phone, or the fact that you didn't pay. Or that you say you paid but don't have the receipt. Ok thats not a review. So I would like to review the actual degree program which I am almost done with. Each part of your program will include lessons and assignments. Youre responsible for completing all of your lessons and assignments in full, in the order in which theyre listed Reading sections of the textbook and answering questions about the material. Reviewing lesson material provided by the instructor and summarizing the content. Accessing outside resources, such as videos, articles, or other material, and taking notes or answering questions about the subject matter. Completing self-study questions or defining vocabulary words. Submitting special projects. Some of ya'll haven't done any of this and are bad reviewing Ashworth for a phone call that went "wrong". Thats not the schools fault. Some of you don't like the online ebooks. You want textbooks. Ok those COST ALOT. So Ashworth has provided a way to give you an inexpensive education. You cant have your cake and eat it too. I have found this IF YOU DO IT COMPLETELY to be a great Finance course. I got professionally certified and got a job. If you say your job wouldn't take your diploma your lying. If your not lying get it on camera and sue them.. see you can't cuz your lying.
I earned my degree in 2006 with 3 young children and 1 toddler at home (homeschooling) and managing a home business. After raising my children, I re-enrolled in 2017 to continue my education for a Bachelors Degree in Business Admin. I have not had any issues or problems at all! The student portal is easy to learn and use. On the rare occasion that I had to call in to Student Services, I was treated with respect and the service has always been great! I already have a job that I enjoy utilizing the knowledge that I have learned. I'm excited to complete my 2nd degree with Ashworth College! #ClassOf2006and2019 Thank You Ashworth!
Sorry for the length of this. I am newly enrolled at Ashworth College, and I just passed my first class. I am a transfer student with half a bachelor's-worth of credits from regionally accredited schools. I am writing this solely to offer some advice when considering enrollment: Credits and degrees from DEAC accredited schools are accepted by many colleges and employers, and not accepted by others. I have done extensive job searching on job search engines as well as looked at a large number of colleges over the past seven years trying to figure out what I want to do, and have noticed that a handful of jobs require a regionally accredited degree, however, the majority of the time they just want an accredited degree. If you are considering graduate study, some colleges simply want a bachelor's degree from an institution that is accredited by a body recognized by the department of education, and some want it from a regionally accredited school. If you want to make sure your degree is recognized by all schools and employers, go for a regionally accredited college. If you don't mind certain employers and colleges not recognizing your degree or credits, then Ashworth is a very affordable as well as time-saving option (if you choose to work quickly). You can graduate in as little as six months. It is $79 per credit for the bachelor's degree program I am enrolled in. That is a very good price, as I was paying $300-400 per credit at the other schools I have been to. Also, I do not feel overloaded with coursework. So, the benefits of Ashworth are saving time and money, and also less of a headache when it comes to study load. The drawback is the lack of regional accreditation. I would say keep in mind when reading the bad reviews, that sometimes they are based on misunderstandings. People don't do their research or don't read the paperwork they signed or have one bad experience and go off on rants. Some good reviews are also based off of the rush of being a new college graduate and are posted by folks who have not gone on a job search or applied to grad school yet. Take every review with a grain of salt is my point, and do your research. Figure out what you need from a school, and what your plans are (job, grad school etc.) and make your college selection accordingly. For me, I am laid back about my job/career prospects and don't mind if certain employers and schools won't accept my credits/degree, as long as most of them will. If you are very particular about that, then pick a regionally accredited school. If you aren't, Ashworth is great. If you are concerned about the reputation of the school, then apply to Harvard or Yale or UC Berkeley. I just want my degree and to get a job doing what I love. DEAC accreditation is good enough for me since the department of education recognizes it. Some people need prestige or excellent customer service or less self-directed study and more structure. That is fine. I am not one of those people. Just consider what you want and need and don't believe everything you read without thinking about it or doing your research. Try going on Indeed or Glassdoor and running a job search in your desired field and look at the educational requirements for a good number of different jobs. Try going on websites of different universities and looking at their grad school admissions requirements. Make phone calls to those schools. So there. That is my two cents.
I have received two diplomas from this institution and graduated with honors. I had the most pleasant educational experience. When I needed help they were right there. My textbooks were always shipped fast. I've attended the live graduation also and even been invited to join the Delta Epsilon Tau Honor Society because of my 4.0 gpa . Thanks Ashworth for giving me a great beick and mortor school experience online.
If you don't attend Ashworth college this is truly your loss of time and money an education is essential. With extremely hard work I got my bachelors degree in a fraction of the time and a fraction of they money Ashworth you are god sent thanks Ashworth team
