"I have enjoyed attending Ashford's online campus. I enrolled for my B.S. in Early Childhood Education in 2017 and graduated 10/2020. After graduating and the experience I had at Ashford, I decided to re-enroll for my M.A. in Special Education, and so far, I am happy I did. I will be graduating with my master's on 8/21. After attending Ashford, I feel very confident in seeking a new career in education. All of my professors were excellent and very helpful throughout my entire education—outstanding online school. Be prepared to work hard and do your part with your teacher's support and all the resources they have to offer; you will succeed. I would highly recommend the school to my friends and family."

"This school is a bit different from a traditional classrom. Professors will not hold your hand. It is a lot of self study, self direction and self motivation. And reading, reading, reading. If this is not your style of learning, then enroll somewhere else. I personally am almost done with my Masters and I got a lot out of it. The curriculum and reading covered a broad base of knowledge."

"I chose this school because it was 100% paid for by the company I work for and it took exactly 23 months for me to graduate. Below are a few things to consider: -Advisors will not hold your hand and walk you through the start of each class. If you reach out they are definitely helpful and respond quickly. -The work is easy as long as you put in the time and effort. One class every fives weeks expect roughly 10-15 hours a week of homework/ dedication. -Professor assistance if 50/50. Some go out of their way to help and others say call IT or use your tutoring resources. I asked for clarification on an assignment and one professor copied and pasted the original requirements with out further explanation. -If you are independent and don’t care to engage with other students or professors and simply looking to get the work done and get it done well than the school is a good fit. - During COVID professors were understanding if you reached out and just let them know your struggling emotionally/ mentally and they are more than willing to accommodate."

"VERY disappointed with this school! Very disorganized from the beginning, and no-one knows anything about you when you call. They drop you from your classes at any point, and you can't get back in until the next one starts. I was dropped in the 4th week for something ridiculous, and they would not put me back in, all that work lost!!!! That was the second time that had happened. Would def do your research on schools before you decide on this one!! Don't screw yourself with extra work that can be avoided. Wish I had picked different!! :("

"I truly enjoy my education with the school, but now that it is coming to an end (I graduate 12/21/2020), I have been informed by the financial aid department that I owe $537.88 out of pocket (which includes graduation fee - which is fine). Mind you even though you may have received a loan, you do not receive any money from those loans, they go straight to your tuition (which again is fine). I am an (A -B+) student, have done well throughout my whole school year have not had an academic problem that would cause a problem with my financial Aid. I noticed throughout my time with Ashford that my financial aid account kept being adjusted, classed added that didn't start till months later, classes added that I had already taken. My awards letter disbursement amounts kept switching. I really took the cake because I had an amount of $1933.88 (which included fees for my last class and a balance), I was fine because I knew I had a disbursement coming on 12/01/20 for over $4000.00 that could cover the amount. Well low and behold three days later, I look at my account and see that a refund for Dirsub of $681.00 and a refund for Dirunsub in the amount of 866.00 was added to my account the total to $3480.88. I immediately contact FA and was informed that a refund had to be made because my credits were reduced due to me graduating this month and not February 2021, but my disbursement would cover the balance fine fine fine. Three days later low and behold I receive another awards letter showing my disbursement amount has been reducing and will not cover the balance, leaving me to have to pay $500 and something dollars out of pocket. I am very upset with the lack of communication between the FA staff and students......They need to do better, by keeping students aware of changes and not waiting until the last minute or before graduation."

"The courses can be tough, but that's to be expected, especially when you're being prepared for the real world. I've had excellent instructors, two of which would reach out to me when they saw that I was behind. I'm only on my fourth class, but I think I bit off more than I can chew with the program I chose. It's interesting, but too overwhelming for me. Add in issues (health, mental health, and technical), and I just can't keep up. That's on me though. My issue with the school is my academic advisor. She doesn't reach out to me until I'm close to being dropped, and even then it's not that often. Now that I've been dropped, she wants to get in touch with me about re-entry. Why not reach out sooner, BEFORE I get close to that point?? Or someone, anyone, reach out!? Other than the issue with her, I haven't had any problems. I'll be going to another school since the program I was in is too much for me and they don't offer anything else I'm interested in. Just like with any other school, research, research, and research some more (the school and your chosen degree) then see if you think this is the right one for you before committing."

"The school structure definitely needs some work. I had one of the worst experiences just with registration at this school. I was paired up with an academic advisor who made the process even worst. As a mother of 3 kids I couldn't stay on the phone for hours end to chat about the process when she could of simply had me do the paperwork. She wouldn't move my start date until she talked to me about it even though I went and spoke to her manager on the phone and sent several emails. I didn't feel comforable starting when my aid hasn't went through yet or my transcripts. Our timezones and schedules were very conflicting. But I do believe in blessings because of this issue i researched other schools I ended up going to Grand Canyon. They're running a scholarship program to make my tuition more affordable also the degree program is alot better for what my career goals are. I decided a bachelor in arts isn't for me I would rather have a bachelor in science in psychology with a focus on mental health. They're not the only school that does one class at a time. Grand Canyon also offers 1 class at a time as well, with options to move up after a few classes. They're soon merging into University of Arizona so I don't know how this will impact the school. So definitely do some researching before going to Ashford University."

"Enrollment talked a good talk to get me enrolled. The first 3 classes you take are basically useless and intended to get as much money from you as they can before you figure out that you will actually be teaching yourself. Assignment instructions are often vague and if you make mistakes or errors on your assignment, you wont be able to revise and resubmit for any better of a grade. Instructors will mark down points but not actually tell you what you did wrong other than say something like "formatting was incorrect", but not tell you how you were supposed to have formatted. I was marked down for formatting in 2 classes before getting to the 3rd class and finally being informed as part of the curriculum that APA formatting was required for all assignments. This happens over and over. You do an assignment on your best guess as to what they want and then a week or two or a class or two later, there's a link or a video that explains what you were supposed to have done previously. Most of the videos are extremely vague anyway and are more of a sales pitch for why to do the assignment rather than how to do it. My Husband has a Masters degree and looked over the course content and method of "teaching" and told me to withdraw because there's no academic value in it."

"Spent 2 years here did not graduate. Support staff is the worst you will ever see, education is middling at best. Transferred to SNHU had no issues and am extremely pleased with the service and education from them. Just trying to get my transcripts sent for graduate school, has cost over 3 hours of endlessly going back and forth between tech support and admissions, each one saying they can't do anything and I need to speak with the other. Now the admissions office is closed and tech support says I will need contact them in the morning and I still don't have my transcripts."

"I am a mother of four and work full-time. Ashford's structure for my Master's allowed me to complete the program in a reasonable time and still have time for my family. I worked and studied hard throughout, and maintained a 4.0. It meant a lot of late nights and working on the weekends, but it was manageable. My academic advisor and professors were easily accessible. I used student loans, as my company did not offer direct reimbursement to the university. Financial aid was very smooth and I had no issues at all with the process (though filling out the FAFSA is always a pain). I was treated with courtesy and respect, and I felt like they cared about my success in completing the program. There are, most definitely, cheaper programs out there. For me, though, the structure, convenience, and efficiency of completion were well worth the cost. Before you select a program, do your research and consider all of the factors involved."
