"I really believed that I could attend an online school to obtain my bachelor's degree with all the hype my admissions counselor gave me, with call after call; they really wear you down. I agreed even though I thought the cost was too high. Now here I am, 8 days from graduation, and they decide that I have been over-awarded, said they refunded my financial aid back to the service lender (BS), my crossover Pell was a partial, and a part of that was taken away. I call the financial aid department at Ashford and all they tell me is contact your advisor. Trying to get ahold of my advisor is like trying to meet with the Pope! And all the financial information I have received in the past 4 months has been more BS. I have been threatened that if I don't pay what is owed I will be pulled from class, not graduate or allowed my transcripts. I am beyond furious and frustrated with the complete run around. All the information from FAFSA, NSLDCS, Dept. Of Education and my lenders all say different things, as well as the multiple award letters from Ashford; none are on the same page. I am angry and want to know why at this late juncture that now I owe money that I know full well Ashford received and now want more. Disgusted and will NOT recommend this school to anyone. I will be attending a brick and mortar school for my Master's degree."

"Overall Ashford University was so easy to work with. I struggled to find consistent grading amongst the different instructors, but overall did not have any serious problems. I had an Associates Degree that transferred and I chose Ashford because the accepted to most credits out of any other college I looked at. However, due to the difference between regional and national accreditation I ended up retaking a few classes I had already done for my Associates Degree. I do wish that they had job placement assistance, because I have really struggled finding quality employment. Their career services do help with resume building, I just don't think that's enough. They also do well at finding and building partnerships with employers to help with tuition assistance or reimbursement. There were always announcements about who they had formed new partnerships with. It would also have been beneficial to have more of an open forum for all online students to network other than those that we were in class with. Overall, they were easy to get ahold of when I had a question or needed a pointer, didn't have any significant problems, and were pretty up front about everything. I would definitely recommend them to others and I already have."

"I started going to school in person at a local college back in 02 right after graduation. When I got married I moved, so I couldn't continue on there. I started another school when the military decided time to move us again. I gave up on going back to school. It wasn't until my husband enrolled to use his TA from the military that I even considered going back. His counselor talked to me and she eventually talked me into it. I've not regretted it since. I'm enjoying the pace (I've doubled up on classes taking 2 every 5wks vs the normal 1) and I like the feedback from professors. It fits great into my time of being a mom, a volunteer, a wife, and a small business owner. I haven't had any real problems from Ashford. I've encountered things I encountered at other schools (rude faculty, smart butt students, etc) but nothing horrible. I can't wait to graduate in 2014. I will say I'm glad they offer the Military SPOUSE a military tuition discount also. That has made life a lot easier. It even includes the textbook for free. Trust me that was something that cost me tons prior. I do appreciate it."
