"The only thing they stress here is APA formatting. The only thing I learned here was APA formatting. Week after week, paper after paper. A majority of the assignments involve writing long essays in every single class. It is really overwhelming and you never catch a break. Everything else, like the stuff that matters, you have to teach it to yourself."

"Went for a year an a half. Had many courses retaken after getting a passing grade. When i left i was told that the loans and grant money was going to be returned to lenders. It never was. I then recieved notice that i owed an additional $1000 on a course i never took. Now im in debt to my ears."

"I attended Ashford University for my Bachelor's in Social and Criminal Justice. I have nothing but good things to say about this college. All of the instructor's were very helpful, as was the enrollment, financial, and student support offices. I never had any trouble receiving funds and always received responses in a timely manner. I am now continuing my education at Ashford in order to receive my Master's in Forensics. If anyone is thinking of attending this college, rest assured, you are making the right decision."

"I don't understand about the negative reviews this University. From day one the staff at Ashford was very helpful and I was able to graduate in 3 1/2 years with a BA while maintaining a full time job as a military service member. I recommend this school to everyone"

"I am a Junior at Ashford University, and can say that so far it has been one amazing and challenging journey. I hear a lot of people down playing Ashford's accreditation, and just want to state that there are 6 major accrediting agents in the United States, and the WASC "Western Association of Schools and Colleges" is one of them. Ashford was accredited by the WASC in 2013 and came up for a review in July of 2015, and successfully passed the examination. Don't believe me, go to the WASC website and discover this for yourself. I have the letter from the WASC to Ashford saved on my desktop to show those naysayers that Ashford is a really good college to attend. Those who fail to succeed have to have someone to blame for their failures and who else better to blame than the school they attend, rather than their on lack of dedication. I am not one to brag; however, I have been very successful in college and think I have made the best choice in choosing Ashford to lead me to success. Yes, it may be a little expensive; however, I do believe you get what you pay for in an education. School is what gives you the tools to work with; It is your place to choose whether to use those tools or not, and whether you choose to initiate them. NO school can make you a 4.0 or a 2.0 student, only the student has the power over his or her success in college and after. I am a 4.0 student with Ashford. I am there to make something out of myself, and I did not know that I was capable of such success as I feel like I am the least smart of most; however, I study hard. First, you have to determine why you are in school in the first place? Are you there for the education, or the finance? If you are in school for a great education, I would highly recommend Ashford, it is very challenging and fulfills well-rounded educational goals. If you are worried about being financially taken care of rather than an education, go to human services for help because you will never get much further than welfare. Anyway, this is my moral and ethical opinion regarding most of the negative thoughts I have read against Ashford University."

"I will graduate in January 2016 with my BA degree my experience with Ashford has been excellent. The staff has always been helpful and answered any questions I have had. My advisor changed once in four years and my first advisor let me know she was leaving for a better job and introduced me to the new one. Those that are complaining must not have put any effort into their program, maybe they thought it would be handed to them. I have and will continue to recommend this school to others."

Don't attend this school - 6/3/2015
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"I feel like I must warn people of this university. I have completed 95 credit hours with Ashford and yesterday they placed a hold on my account. After several (around 3 phone calls and 2 e-mails sent) I finally got in touch with my advisor. He told me that I needed to take another English class (eng122) or I wouldn't meet graduating requirements. I was told when I started that all of my English credits transferred when I began to take classes. Don't get me wrong, if another English class was required from the beginning I would have done it. The point here is that they waited until I was almost ready to graduate to tell me that I had to pay another $750.00 for this class. I feel like they tried to ripe me off. This is just the most recent issue I've had with Ashford and the one that finally got me fed up. I've had issues with being dropped from classes because the TA office didn't process my TA in a timely fashion, then they would blame it on me for not sending it in on time. Fortunately for me I keep all e-mails and I would send the message I sent them and they would say sorry we must have over looked it. Then I've had issues with most of my advisors (they change a lot) not returning my calls or e-mails for several days. This university has also been on the diploma mill site, found that out yesterday. DO NOT ATTEND Ashford."

"As a military member, I found Ashford to be incredibly user friendly. As with anything, you have to take the good with the bad and no school that you attend will be 100% perfect. The professors that I had were all knowledgeable, and each had their own way of teaching and presenting material. I am not ashamed to say that I was never what you would call an "exemplary student", but the drive and determination that I had combined with the instruction and course material allowed me to graduate Magna Cum Laude. I am very proud of my accomplishments and would advise anyone seeking a college education to check out Ashford University."
