"Ashford university is a great school for people who like structure but need flexibility. Most of the classes are designed where the due dates are the same(Tues/Thurs) so you can get into a rhythm. You will read a lot because the aren't any "video lectures" or teleconferencing. For me that was a good thing. They even have apps for your class and books so you can read and/or complete assignments any where in the world. If you're a busy, self-motivated adult, this is the school for you."

"First off this is not a bad school and it is accredited. I have had such a wonderful experience at the school. I just graduate with my bachelors in healthcare administration and I am pleased say that I graduated with a 3.68. School is what you make it. And if I every had needed anything I was always taken care of. So yes I would recommend this school to anyone. I am for anyone who didn't know they have a beautiful campus."

"I would not chose this college again. If I wasn't almost done, I would transfer. The classes are basic and don't require a whole lot of work. I feel as though I am basically paying for my degree and to write a few papers about 3-8 pages in length. Some of these classes are a joke too. Just a way to make money in my opinion. The finances are crazy and trying to get your disbursement, well you better just sit back and wait for it becauase it's not coming soon. I was signed up for a class that required a pre requisite and bought a book and then the day before class began, I was told I couldn't take it! Wouldn't recommend."

"I attended Ashford University for a little over 3 1/2 years, received a Bachelor in Healthcare Administration, minored in Psychology and specialized in Public Administration. It was the best college I ever attended. The instructors, advisory and curriculum were great. I learned tremendously."

"I would never recommend this school to anyone just because of the financial aid office!! the instructor's are very good, but I feel like the financial aid office did not apply all my aid to my classes and/or stipend. they are telling me I owe $1071 and I know I had enough aid to take care of my classes!! they also add classes on that are not even scheduled for months later!! I am going to file a report with the doe and let them check into this school!!!"

"Ashford is a great school for someone employed full time. I was active duty military during my entire enrollment period. The coursework was challenging but not overwhelming. There is quite a bit of writing involved, so be prepared for that. For the most part the professors were engaged and knowledgeable. I learned a great deal and my degree was definitely a factor in finding a good job after I retired. Do not go into this school if you are looking for an easy ride or a degree that does not require a lot of work, but if you are looking for a flexible, nontraditional education and are willing to invest the time and effort, go for it!"

"I attended Ashford University for 3 years and obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Healthcare Administration. I was able to transfer in credits from a technical college. I found that the overall experience there was just like any other school. I have since attended Clemson University and North Greenville University on the graduate level. The financial aid department was ridiculous just like any other school and the work was challenging just like any other school. Prior to attending Ashford I sent the information on the school to several people I knew that work in local hospitals, several of which do the hiring. I was told from all of them that as long as the school is regionally accredited, they were fine with it. I can say that my degree gave me a raise at my job as well as got me into the MBA program at Clemson University. For this school to be a "joke" as some have stated, they sure have the US Board of Education, major schools like Clemson, and the business world fooled. If you have not found a job "because of your degree", you should probably look at what your degree is in or take a look at yourself because everyone else recognizes them as a legit university. Also, if many of you have not noticed, there are a lot of people with graduate degrees without jobs and most are likely more qualified than you. These people are putting in for the same jobs as you. Experience in the field also plays a major role in the hiring process. So keep that in mind. Their business program is also accredited by the IACSB. They are for-profit therefore they are charging more and more driven by money but, which school isn't? Have any of you actually looked at the ridiculous prices schools are charging all over the country? I can assure any one looking at this university that their work is no less than any other, including the work of Clemson University. I can make this statement from personal experience. Anyone who says they failed because of a "bad teacher" is full of it, they did not put in the work therefore they failed and are throwing a temper tantrum and blaming the teacher. I didn't fail a single class because I put in 6 hours or more a week and actually studied. I really think that you will get what you put in. If you half heartedly try, you will get half hearted results and that goes with any university. If you want a degree with no work, go to a diploma mill and buy yours. Like I said before, I would recommend this university however, I would also tell future students to look at other schools as well because there are a bunch out there that are online for way cheaper. If I could go back, I would probably try to go to a public school to try and save on the bill a little. This school is just like any other for-profit or public university in the country. They are all out to get as much money as possible and they all have a joke of a financial aid department. Don't believe all of the whiners on here. There are a lot of people who actually did what they are supposed and have had success with their degrees."

"Ashford is no different from any other online school such as phoenix, Walden or Capella,its hard to satisfy some people. I will be graduating with my Masters in 2014 and the work was difficult. All my professors were PhD leveled educators with a lot of experience. ALL THE COMPLAINTS HERE ARE PERSONAL (FINANCIAL AID ISSUES, BAD GRADES,STAFF WITH ATTITUDES). I read above, someone was mad due a bad grade. Hello! You earned it. I had NOOOOOO problems, my grades were earned, financial aid went smoothly and the staff was nice to me. In an online format it takes a lot of dedication and discipline. I worked 40hr/wk and studied at least 20hr/wk. One comment above: This school is not recognized in the US, REALLY!. If that was true, then why would the US dept of education (THE GOVERNMENT)allow us to borrow money to a non-accreditation school. It's a known fact, If a school is on the list at the dept. of education, then it is accredited. This school is accredited and they have a real brick and mortar in Iowa. I attended the ceremony for my BA at Ashford university. I've checked out many online schools reviews and each one has the same complaints, even top rated schools."

"I had such high hopes for Ashford when I started, the first admissions counselor I had was fabulous and got me excited for my degree program and talked up the wonderful classes. I was IMMENSELY disappointed in this program. While the number of online schools is something to be desired, I wish I had looked at other options as opposed to this one. I have two weeks left in my last class which is an entry level class for writing and is a complete and total waste of my time. The advisors tell you completely different stories from each other and one told me I was able to challenge a course and another told me absolutely not. I feel like I wasted my time in this program and paid a huge amount in required digital materials that I didn't even have access to.Another area I was disgruntled with was the financial department. I was sent a collection noticed on THANKSGIVING! Yes, that's right a flipping holiday, when my bill was paid in full with additional funding even available in my account. What a frustrating event. To top it off, no one was available to talk with because of the holiday but that didn't stop them from sending crap out. When I did get in touch with someone, I was told that they were looking into it and it was probably a glitch in the system! No apology, nothing!I have never felt like I wasted my time more in my education aspirations and can only hope that I can deter anyone from attending this university. All they want is your money and it is a complete joke!!!! I am getting ready to start my MBA program at another university and feel like I am going to struggle to keep up because the program at Ashford was so bad./p>Please look elsewhere!"

"I completed my BA degree at Ashford University and I'm 3 credits away from obtaining my Master with them as well. I must say I am very pleased. From day one I everyone was very helpful and concerned with me completing my degree.I did have a few professors along the way that were difficult and caused to resend from that particular course while treading the course of completion.The University is what you make of it. If you are having a problem with Financial Aide which seems to be the major concern on this site then ask to speak with a supervisor and get the names of everyone you speak with. I had a situation with someone in Financial Aide and when I spoke with the supervisor he resolved it in a timely fashion.Remeber that as a life lesson everyone has a supervisor. When the employee you are dealing with cannot help you just ask for a supervisor and keep climbing until you get your point across.Ashford will help with the advancement of my career because I will not stop until it does. I have worked in Health Care for twenty years and because I am determined that where I am is not my end I have no other choice but to SUCCEED! I wish you well as you read this review and press toward the mark of higher learning."
