"I attended Ashford University from 2009-2013 and thought that my learning experience was terrific. Going to Ashford is like anything else in life, if you put the effort in you will succeed. Ashford University offers a lot of people a chance to succeed but some of these people do not put the proper effort into their studies and then complain when they fail classes and lose the money they invested. As a student of Ashford I turned in every assignment in a four year period and received help from instructors whenever I needed it and as a result I graduated with a 3.83 GPA. In my four year journey at Ashford I was fully aware of the attack on the university by Liberal senator Tom Harkin, which resulted in me writing him a letter. After watching the assault come full circle over my four years at Ashford I formed the hypothesis that liberals (so called progressives) hate online, for-profit education because they hate profit, and they no longer control the monopoly on higher learning that has allowed them to indoctrinate America's youth for the last 75 years. Ashford University may make a profit but profit creates competition in the marketplace therefore making the university better in the long run. Also we must remember that schools like Harvard have endowments upwards of 2 billion dollars, that's not profit? In the end I would recommend Ashford University to anyone looking to further their education, but specifically those people who have to work 40 hours a week to support a family, Ashford gives you a chance to learn and work."

"I am very disappointed to see the negative comments about Ashford. Every member of staff I ever spoke to was very friendly and as helpful as possible. I have attended for four years and never had any problems with staff or instructors. My advisers always responded in a timely manner and I feel I have received a quality education at Ashford and will most likely go on to get my Master's there. The problem is that many people are not disciplined enough to supervise themselves through life. A college degree is you responsibility and no one else's. If you do not take care of things the right way, bad things can happen such as some of the ones I have seen mentioned on this site. I kept my ducks in a row and managed four years of online schooling with this university with minimal technical difficulties. Their prices are in line with every other similar college I checked in to. I would highly recommend Ashford University to any and everyone!"

"I hate this school. It is absolutely terrible. They screwed me over completely multiple times. The last straw was when I failed a class and had to pay them back before I could even move on to any other classes. So I was working on a payment plan with my financial adviser. We started figuring something out and all of a sudden my balance/"Case" got sent to collections by some other idiot in the financial aid department. My financial aid lady said there was nothing she could do about it. (I WAS LIVID) You have somebody sitting there willing to pay you, not trying to get out of paying you and you send my my account to collections???? They suck at communicating with each other. Its ridiculous...I would have one person call me for something and the next day someone would email or call me about the same thing. (This was throughout my time there and didn't just have to do with me paying them back- which is all the cared about) I honestly felt like i was just a number to them and all they gave a crap about was the money I was paying them. I obtained 36 credits and i am 17,000 dollars IN DEBT. I know some people who obtained their bachelors degrees for under 20,000 from junior colleges/state schools. I know it is more expensive to do online schooling (I'm quite aware) but really, that much more expensive? Its absolutely mind blowing and ridiculous. WAY TO EXPENSIVE on top of it being a crappy school. They don't care about you, so don't let them fool you. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. Also, i feel like i did't learn anything. You could scoot your way through doing the bare minimum and pass. If that sounds like the right education for you, go for it. ASHFORD IS A JOKE. Btw, no I did not graduate from Ashford."

"This school claims it offers a flexible schedule for the working student. In fact, it doesn't. I am a retired military veteran. This school goes hard after the military, because of the Post-911 GI Bill. The instructors do not operate from the same set of criteria. Some may give you partial credit if you're late with an assignment. Others will fail you if you submit your assignment at 12:01. It was my experience that most of the instructors do not answer your emails, or will answer them too late. If your internet goes down, you may as well consider yourself failed for the week if your work hours do not afford you the opportunity to go to the library during their hours of operation. The reading assignments on some of the courses are pretty long. If the class starts on Tuesday, you're expected to retain what you read in multiple chapters, and then complete 2 assignments and two Discussion Boards, using and citing multiple scholarly sources by Thursday. Then you take the test by Sunday. If you have a paper to write, then you have to research your sources, and go through the process of putting it all together. How can you prepare a draft final paper on your second week of a course, when the final paper covers the entire textbook? Ashford Online could probably work for somebody who has nothing to do but go to school. In that case, I suggest going to a brick and mortar school with live instructors that TEACH. Otherwise, you are teaching yourself if you use Ashford Online."

"Ashford has great student advisors, they're always helpful but I have an issue with the instructors and the degree program. First of all, I was able to CLEP two classes and was told that these classes would go against my degree program, these classes took but my graduation date was pushed back. Then I received an email from my student advisor stating my two classes were not sufficient for my upper division classes and had to two more elective classes. Please note, before I transferred those credits and before I started at Ashford, my electives were already taken care of. So, it just seems really shady and seems as though Ashford is trying to receive more money from me. Not only that, the instructors are really poor, one instructor will accept your homework late as long as you tell them weeks prior and others will still deduct points from you even if it's late. I had an instructor deduct points from me even though I just had major surgery and was bed rest, drugged up on meds. I asked the instructor why and he stated he had to, he also stated I didn't tell him in time. When in all actuality, I told him the day before the class started and told him I was having surgery that Thursday and will be on bed rest for two weeks. I also sent him a doctor's note but apparently, none of those sufficed. I did receive an A in the class so I didn't want to fight with the instructor but this is an example on how Ashford's instructors work. The only part I like about Ashford is the accelerated classes. Other than that, I do not advise prospective students to go to Ashford."

"The worst student advisor ever = E. P. This she won't answer any of your emails. The courses you take online are a joke and they play good/bad cop in the teacher role. They will strip you of your money by giving a "'bad" teacher who is hard to please and force you to a failing grade making the university more money. Nothing but greedy people who don't care."

"Ashford University is the worst school I have ever been to... they Administration Department is a Joke. If you can choose any other online program, do it, and stay far far away from Ashford. Right from the get go I had issue after issue, now I am stuck where I cannot finish my degree due to a dispute with the University, caused by the University staff, and when I appealed to the University, the same staff members who caused the issue were the ones reviewing the dispute, and shockingly deemed no resolution possible. If I knew in 2011 when I signed up what I know now, I would have run in the opposite direction screaming. If you want to finish your degree with the smallest headache possible, stay away. The entire grievance resolution, dispute resolution, and financial aid services departments are run by morons, with Dr. P at the fore front as leading moron."

"I am still in school but I am very pleased with the experience. I have attended both traditional and online college throughout adulthood while juggling a job and a family. In this time I have to say without a doubt going to an online university is, in my opinion, more challenging. In my traditional classes the professors taught me what I needed to know to pass the course. As long as I could retain the information I scored well. In online schooling the most difficult part is the not knowing whats on the test. You have to study everything and read everything on your own with little hand holding. I have to say though that the experience in an online program is dull compared to the party rich environment that a traditional college brings. I do think I would enjoy my self there as a full time student but I am also in school to learn."

"Graduated from here after attending for two years. Thought it was a good experience overall and especially during the latter portion of my time there. I think They got too large too fast and many of the employees (not instructors) were very unorganized and poorly trained - but are seemingly doing a better job as of late. Expansive library and amount of tools supplied for students as well as a nice online platform. Make sure to be on top of your communication with advisors and you will enjoy your time here. Graduated and was promoted at work the next month, so it proved to be beneficial for me. Receive many alumni e-mails - from career services to events as well - which is nice. Coursework is laid out nicely and as long as you put your effort in, you will earn a very solid learning experience."
