Ashworth College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (253)
Ashworth is a great choice for someone who is looking to finish their degree and are already in an established career needing a Bachelor's Degree for career advancement. I needed to finish my degree as I already had over half the credits required to complete a Bachelors Degree. Ashworth is a great value for the money but NOT a college for someone right out of High School or, as stated in other reviews, an institution for technical careers that have specific requirements. Additionally, Ashworth's curriculum is 100% self directed which requires a greater amount of focus. I personally have tried several online schools and must say that Ashworth's online materials, library and delivery of materials is exceptional at a fraction of the cost. The staff at Ashworth are not really that helpful and their skills are a little rough around the edges and not your typical employee at a higher education institution. If you limit your communications to online chats then you wont be as frustrated with what appears to be individuals who have only a high school education.. PROS: Affordable, Flexible payment plan, Full pay of tuition discount, accredited, self directed, online flexibility, excellent resources including library, good introductory courses CONS: Self directed, Tech/Computer courses outdated, not regionally accredited, Staff, Will not transfer credits received over 10 years prior
If you are already in a field or aiming towards one as you are working full-time this will be for you. Obviously, many are going to argue to not do it because it is not regionally accredited. I must say none of my employers were concerned or questioned me regarding my degree. You will thrive if you are serious and positive. You must, however, understand that you have to study. This school offers books, testing, paperwork submission and best is you can do it at your own pace. We are not all made to be in a classroom. Society keeps pushing us to be all the same and we are just not. Thank you, Ashworth, for offering this and I am sure in time you will rise to the standards of being regionally accredited. For the critics, many multi-millionaires did not even have a degree.
Ashworth College is the best l did my undergraduate in Healthcare Management did my Associate degree in Healthcare Management and am now doing my Bachelor's Degree in Healthcare Management and will do my MBA because l love the school and l have not had any issues with them. Highly recommended
Good school. When I started most of the courses were via. "snail mail" but the school made a transition into the digital age. It is quickly becoming a major player in education and without a doubt was a forerunner of 21st century distance education. Go Ashworth!
I attended this school for about 4 months in 2015 to obtain an auto cad certification. Within the 4 months, the material provided was clear and well written. The tests did challenge me, as well as the class work. I would recommend this school on a certificate level. The instructor that i had did help when i needed. Usually within a day if not before, i had a response. Again i would recommend.
This school is legit. Everyone talking a out transfer credits.... why bother when you don't need to? Regionally Accredited schools do one thing and one thing only, CHARGE you more. Ashworth does not. You can get an Associates, Bachelors and Masters here. If you want to transfer to a regionally accredited school, you can transfer to American Public/Military University and get the rest of your degree from them. They are also reasonably priced. Don't let people scare you. They are just afraid to hustle. The quality of the material from this school is right in the middle. It isn't Harvard, but it isn't high school level either. It is challenging and requires work. I LOVE how the text books are professional and used by the same Regional schools. They cut through the BS and let you read about the main points quickly, instead of going through a ton of material and shit you don't actually need. I have learned so much from my classes and it truly is at your own pace.
The school is nationally accredited not regionally. It will not transfer to your state schools. It transfers to most nationally accredited schools not regionally accredited schools (there are some exceptions, but few). Get over the name, it is not going to impress anyone. Some jobs require a regionally accredited degree, Ashworth does not apply and will not work for you. Cost is the only reason I chose Ashworth, the books are included and it really is self-paced. The tech errors or delays are minimal and the same I experienced when attending a state school. The customer service is hit and miss, some people are nicer than others, again, the same as I experienced in a state school. Some teachers barely read my papers and other's gave me great insight on how to improve my structure or focus on my papers. If you feel embarrassed about getting an education from this school then don't apply. Please do not discourage those that are looking to improve their prospects. It is accurate to inform people that a nationally accredited degree is limited on transferability as opposed to a regionally accredited degree. You may not transfer to NYU, Berkely, Boston State, community college etc. w/ credits from Ashworth This degree helped me in my career and in my personal/professional growth as a marketing executive. I'm now considering Ashworth for my Master's degree. This decision is due to cost mostly but the flexibility and self-pace really helped me during busy times at the office. It is helpful when you cannot take a week or two off of school and you have travel or deadlines. May you find success on your journey to higher education.
ASHWORTH IS ONE OF THE BEST. ITS VERY AFFORDABLE BUT I HAD NO ISSUES WITH THE STAFF OR GETTING ANY OF MY BOOKS ON TIME OR WHAT NOT. ITS AN AMAZING SCHOOL, I LOVED IT. ALONG WITH ONLINE SCHOOLING, IT TAKES COMMITMENT AND NOT MAY HAVE THAT. ONLINE SCHOOL IS VERY HARD, AND ASHWORTH HAD MADE MY EXPERIENCE WORTH WHILE. CURRENTLY MY SON IS A SENIOR AT JAMES MADISON HIGH, AND ITS THE BEST!!! I WOULD RECOMMEND ASHWORTH.
I am from the Caribbean island St.Vncen. t I did the gourmet cooking and catering course and not only did I learned a lot I also got employment on ships did private parties weddings etc ..I now am a owner of Banners Bar and Grill in Chateaubelair St. Vincent..Thanks to Ashworth..
This College has been like a God send to me. I do not have enough words to describe how wonderful this College has been to me. I've learned so much over the years and I do not have any complaints. I ended up getting my High School Diploma through James Madison High School and went on to get an AS in Early Childhood Education and an AS in Psychology. I also have a Diploma in Nutrition, Diet and Health Sciences. I'm now working on getting my Diploma as a Home Health Aide. I'm sure that I'll continue my Education through Ashworth. Next, I'm thinking about Social Services Assistant in Substance Abuse. Either that, or a Physical Therapy Aide. I'm a career student and enjoy learning and I will continue with this College. I'm also interested in other courses through here as well and I've had no problems in finding employment.
