"Ashford represents itself as a "military friendly" school. This is not an accurate statement. There are several pitfalls that military students need to be aware of. Finances / Veteran Benefits: 1.) Financial services will not verify your GI Bill benefit level. If you are not 100% on your Post 9/11, you will have a very difficult time maintaining an accurate student ledger. This ended up leaving me with a $5,000 balance due that was slapped on at the end of my degree and left my unable to take my last class to graduate for over a year. 2.) You will get VA debt issues due to Ashford's inaccurate billing and claims practices. They will credit your account, then pull funding because they had already submitted it prior, and you will be left holding the bag with the VA. 3.) They are not a Yellow Ribbon Schoo. If you are 100% on your Post 9/11, you're leaving a lot of money on the table by going to a school that didn't meet this requirement. Don't sell yourself short on your benefits, go somewhere that actually offers full benefit usage. Academic Support: You will be assigned an advisor, who works in a call center. The advising experience is very similar to trying to deal with a "car warranty" salesman. Information is constantly conflicting between departments, and there is no oversight or accountability. You'll be told one thing, only to have it change the next time you call in. Getting things in writing does little to help actually resolve issues. Also, you are not allowed to speak to department Dean';s or senior school leadership when you have an issue. The Dean and President's offices of the school do not publish contact information, and the call center will not allow you to write concerns to these school officials. You end up feeling like you're dealing with the IRS instead of a university. Advisors: Your advisor will likely change several times during your academic experience with no notification. You'll just happen to see a different name pop up on your student dashboard. When you call, your advisor will have no idea what you've worked on with the previous advisor. It feels a lot like getting transferred between call center reps."

"Ashford University is an excellent University. The staff are great and go the extra mile to assist students. Whenever possible, I attend all of their networking events. It is great meeting the Ashford team. Any negative comments posted here, I feel are a reflection of the student and not the University. I would recommend Ashford to my friends and family. Go Ashford! Great University!"

"Listen to this review. I got my breakthrough at Ashford University. The school is reliable but expensive. There is a lot of work that is required, but most of it is writing. Ashford is an equal opportunity school. Meaning it generally lets anyone attend that applies. The real issue is that most of the negative posts are from people that should not be going to college in the first place. The students that post negative comments holistically cant fulfill the rigorous standards and are upset when they have to return their precious government funds. Remember that this University is regionally accredited which is the gold standard in academia. I am now enrolled in ta graduate program through a respected University. Thanks again to Ashford University."

"Ashford University offered me the degree plan I was seeking. From the advisors all the way up to the academic instructors, I have nothing but praise for them and how much they helped me succeed in my classes and understood when I had the occasional milit"

"Ashford University is a good school and you will learn a lot. The professors are strict and you must turn your work in on time or they will give you a zero. There are some that might bend if you email them and let them know the problem but most goes by the policy. I graduate in 3 weeks and I'm glad this will be over. The school is too expensive but financial aid, grants, and loans are available. My advice is be serious about your studies, keep up with your assignments, and ask for help when you need it. Class of 2016!!!"

"I just graduated from this school this year and all I can say is that they have very great classroom environment but the only issues were the student advisors. There was only one (MR) that was super awesome and after he was changed out with (LR) she was always handing down her work to people I didn't know. I couldn't get a hold of her and when my questions were answered by another (SA) she would contact me and ask what I needed which is crazy. I asked her a question and she can't answer it for me so she would direct me to another person or have me contact the source myself. This was unbelievable!!! Some people go to work to not just earn a paycheck but please help us and guide us better. I hope she gets better at her job some day!"

"I would like to start off with, all colleges are businesses. If you believe that colleges are not, then you are very mistaken. I would say that Ashford is a great college. As far as people saying that the classes are BS or too easy, I am in the military and had 200 college credits from other schools all over the world as I travel. Most of those classes where in person (CTC, UMD, NTC, etc.). My GPA was 3.85 with those 200 college classes. Granted 40ish were in Criminal justice, 40ish in engineering and the rest in whatever was offered when I was deployed into a theater. My wife received her degree (BA of Science) from TX A&M and said that I do more per class then she had to do with her degree. I love the fact that the cases are five weeks long and I can literally do them anywhere in the world. I am currently deployed again and I have been able to do a full year of college. Even when missions came up or I had no internet the instructors were very understanding (minus one) and I was allotted to turn in assignments late without penalty. Even with a few minor issues that didn’t go in my favor, Ashford is a great school. If you were wondering my GPA is currently 3.36 (Mostly because of my work environment) with Ashford, finishing two classes with two classes to go before I graduate. On an additional note, there instructors all have doctorates, my friend has a masters in computer science degree and taught for University of Minnesota, just to compare if you believe the instructors are not qualified."

"I just graduated in July, 2015. My overall satisfaction with Ashford is good. All my instructors were intelligent and had there doctorates. Enrolling was easy and I had 74 units transferred from my JC where I got my AA. The cost benefit analysis is positive, less then $20k overall to get my bachelors including my JC costs. You get settled in to a rhythm pretty quick, rotating classes every 6th week, which I liked. I had my worries about if I made the right choice on a college but Ashford has everything that matters accreditation wise. Im just starting my job search so I will see if the degree pays off. You get out what you put in, I busted my butt and never missed an assignment and put quality time into my studies and I got a 3.91 g.p.a. I made the dean's list every semester and was invited to the Golden Key Society and was inducted into Alpha Sigma Lambda."

"Had a fantastic experience with Ashford University. I initially started my degree while still on active duty military (using tuition assistance) and then finished my degree a little over a year after I got out using the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Had a couple changes to my academic advisor in my 3+ years of study but each change was very seamless. Each time, I was adequately informed and kept in the loop on everything that would affect me and my studies. Entry was seamless as well and they knew exactly how to process my military status and any special requests or needs I had as a veteran. Collaboration and communication were always very important, at least from my perspective. Overall, I would recommend Ashford to anyone who is looking to enhance their career path, especially adults with children/family or have full-time jobs who can't just drop everything to pursue higher education!"

"I graduated in 2011, yes I have significant debt but I am happy to have the degree. I am now poised to enter a graduate program. I will choose another on-line school because of the flexibility offered in this type of education. I liked the pace, there was a rhythm predictable two responses to my classmates posts and one every week written by me, two 1000 word papers and a final paper. I have attended class on campus at other schools and I realize there is a difference, you must be disciplined to finish a degree on-line."
