Ashworth College Reviews

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
I am a veteran, and have been using my benefits to pay for school. I noticed a lot of the bad reviews have been associated with money. I cannot really attest to the validity of that because I am not paying out of pocket. Other than that, the course work is flexible. It is clear cut and still lets you have a life while earning a degree. I do sometimes question the credibility of the college just because it is a for profit college. I have not had any issues yet. If I have problems or need assistance I have always been accommodated. I have only had a positive experience thus far and feel like I am learning a lot. I also like that they have live graduations available.
I finished the degree and found my opportunities increase. Ashworth is a great school of your are self-disciplined and motivated. It is very compatible for a full time job and school. I would recommend Ashworth to anyone looking to further their education and increase employment.
I am a first generation graduate .and that wouldn't have been possible I had not went to Ashworth. Ashworth is is affordable and I was able to work at my own pace ,the administration and lectures were very helpful as they helped me out every step of the way. thank you Ashworth college I am a graduate today because of you
This is good for one like me works three jobs and school same time . This is a good school they work with you . It took me 4 years or so to pay them off but I did it. Im retried law enforcement and still in the military part time . As long you pay this school on time your ok.
This school is whatever you want to make of it. I decided to give this school a try because it was 100% online and I could work at my own pace. I work full-time and I have a family that takes up a lot of my time. I really like the fact that this school removes a lot of unnecessary fluff that most campus-based schools put you through like P.E. and Art appreciation. I also like the fact that they quickly move you into what you need to know in real life situations. I went to a community college that offered online course work but I didn't learn anything. The coursework consisted of 350 word essays on the theory but no hands on until the last month of class. I paid $650 on 3 textbooks that basically repeated the same information. How many ways do you say PHI is a big deal and EHR are not the same as EMR! At Ashworth college it took me 2 books let's not even talk about my testing fees, pretest, and study guide were included in my tuition. I paid less than $1k and learned more in less time. For all those people complaining about late textbooks and customer service I don't understand how a textbook can be late when you are learning at you own pace. The textbooks get shipped out automatically when you finish your section in the portal and shipping depends on where you live after all you are receiving textbooks by mail and mail is not always fast. Every time I call customer service they are always kind and helpful I find that if you are rude you will get rudeness back. To the person who said they are a strong black woman, I am also a strong black woman which has nothing to do with Ashworth college ability to teach you. Ashworth doesn't give a hoot about your race, creed, gender, or age as long as you are paying them for their service which is to help you be the best you can be! I love this school they helped me to better myself at an affordable price. My next goal is to finish their Psychology degree in which I have already found out I can transfer most of my credits.
I graduated in 2016 with my Associates in Criminal Justice from Ashworth. The degree granted me contract PFC with the United States Marine Corps, so I began studies for my Bachelors in 2017 while enlisted. It's cheap and recognized through the Department of Education, which is honestly the most important thing to employers these days. If you grew up in a poor family like me and you and your family never had enough money to send you to college, Ashworth is an amazing opportunity to get a quality degree at an affordable price. I've honestly learned a lot just by teaching myself online.
My experience at Ashworth is going great! At first, it took me a little while to get started as I working on multiple academic programs. I personally believe my undergraduate certificate will be a priceless asset for me in conjunction with my other credentials. As others mentioned, the work is understandable but dedicated study is a must! Post completion of the program, I am looking forwarding to receiving my undergraduate certificate in the mail. Thank you Lord for allowing me get through this process!
