"I'm almost fifty and I returned to school to receive my bachelor's in psychology with the intention of going to grad school at another university. They don't have a program designed for MFTs. Even though I'm older and have a learning disability (encoding, decoding, memory) I've maintained almost straight A's. The instructors all have PhD.s and most of them are pretty helpful. Bare in mind their help is very limited because they are teaching online and running who knows how many courses at a time. I only have two more classes until I graduate. I found it challenging but doable. If you're a self starter and willing to apply yourself, you will earn your degree. The school is quite expensive and I would do my first two years through a community college if possible. They will transfer 60 to 90 units for the bachelor's program depending on your courses and the criteria of the state requirements you have. I'm in California, so out of 134 previous units only 60 transferred (FYI) In my opinion I've obtained a pretty good education and enjoyed the challenge seventy five percent of the time. Ashford has very low math requirements for their bachelor's in arts programs. This was a deal breaker for me since I absolutely cannot do higher levels of math. There is a statistics course, but I survived it with an A minus. Be mindful that Ashford University is a private school and a business. My only complaints were that I was kind of mislead by the recruiter regarding my units and the financial department took almost a year to get my scholarship working right. What they say on the phone is not set in stone. Get everything confirmed by email. Ask as many questions as you can. Make a well informed decision. All things said, I've had a great overall experience at Ashford."

"I found the classes challenging, the instructors helpful, and my fellow students engaging. Ashford prepared me to continue on to a State University graduate school, where I became a licensed social worker. I highly recommend Ashford university. ."

"I would have to say that attending Ashford University was one of the best decisions I could have made for myself. I cant put into words how helpful my instructors were, how much I've learned about my field and just how happy I am to have received my degree.I truly believe that if anybody had an issue with this school it is because they did not apply themselves. Because of Ashford I have my degree, the first in my family!"

Frustrated - 11/1/2016
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"This school is the absolute worst!!! I would never recommend this school to anyone. First I had paperwork that needed to be completed before I could start okay I did it all. It seemed like almost every day my advisor would be calling telling me he didn't receive anything when I would email it directly to him. After 4 or 5 times of this I became extremely frustrated but I still continued against my better judgment. After taking a class for 4 weeks I was told I was dropped from the class because all of my financial paperwork was not completed and I would have to fill out everything again. I agreed with no complaints. My advisor said he would send me the link, so I waited but it never was sent. All of a sudden I received a email that stated the financial department found all my paperwork and that the reason it couldn't be located was they were looking at the wrong file. They should have double checked everything before dropping me from my class. He also goes on to ask me if I would take an orientation class to be reinstated but I would have to take the class over. NO WAY!!! ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! This is very unorganized."

"I too had doubts about my education until I started attending my graduate level classes. These classes hold a CACREP accreditation. (Look it up.) Missouri requires this level of accreditation for all online schools at this level of education. I am well prepared, and able to obtain great grades at Capella; this is all due to the level of education I received at Ashford. You get back what you put in. True, there is very little hand holding and in reality this type of education in not for everyone. One needs to be a self-starter, dedicated and willing to go beyond sitting in a classroom with an occasional repeat after me parrot test. This system of education turns out thinkers, movers and shakers. In doing so it has upset the balance of what education was and what it is becoming. While it is true that everyone could earn an education, not many do and even fewer know how to use one. Lastly, as I stated above I lack for nothing at the graduate level. Thank you Ashford!"

"I enrolled at Ashford in 2012 and I graduated with two bachelor degrees; Psychology and Sociology. The overall experience for me as a student was very rewarding. If I ever needed to talk to any advisors they were there fro me. I liked the idea of doing one class at a time at my own pace however there are deadlines that had to be met. If I were ever to be late with assignments I was contacted my instructor and they were totally understanding of my situation. To learn and obtain a degree you must work hard for it. I am continuing my education here at Ashford to obtain a Master's degree in Psychology. I will start next month and only have to be enrolled for a year and a half which was awesome. As for as financial aid is concerned I never had any issues with that. My financial aid was always disbursed when it said it would be. I have really enjoyed being a student and I recommend this school to anyone. I love the flexibility and the convenience of online learning. Between work and family life you have to learn good time management skills which they teach this to you in the beginning and it has definitively paid off for me. It is hard to see the bad reviews that others have experienced at Ashford but mine was awesome and rewarding and I can only say that this is a great school to learn from and you get out what you have learned the effort that you have put in it. I will say that when you are at the last few classes fro completion they do teach you how to prepare you for a career for example on how to do a professional resume, and show you the tools on how to research your choice of career options with your degree."

"Ashford is the school that I received my Bachelor's Degree from. Being a single mother of two young children while working a full-time job can be hard to manage. At Ashford University, I succeeded and obtained a Bachelor's Degree using time management skills. I would recommend this Ashford University and the utilization of time management to anyone who wants to balance work, family, and school. Ashford University is a great school."

"I would not recommend Ash U. 1st I have made mistakes with docs that are my fault. I take response for that. But when I enrolled my  advisor called me daily, he sent me emails, gave advice, and promised he'd always be available. Fast forward to after my probation period and my money was locked in. He disappeared. I emailed him 4 time the past 3 months, I called him 4 times, no returns at all. I asked someone else why and she said I have a new advisor who after 5 months of school never reached out or told me of her. That fine sort of, but why was the 1st guy promising to help me through my entire 4 years and doesn't even respond to me. They will put you in a column and you will only be a number to them. The problem is if I'm a just a number fine, just don't pretend to always help and respond so quickly until you get me locked in money wise only to be so unreachable. It's been a week and I still haven't heard from my new advisor since leaving her a voice message. I am having troubles and no one cares enough to invest a little extra time to help. I'm sure they will help eventually, but on their time and terms. only wish they showed true colors from the start. SO if you don't ever plan on running into trouble this school might work for you. But if you need transcripts, financial aid docs, or class assistance be weary. I am 1500 miles away from ash U. I would never let anyone go to a school you can only reach by phone again."

"Ashford provided good assistance when it came to guidance in what I needed to do to finish my degree. The classes are 5 weeks longs which can be high pace. I did not have any trouble getting assistance from my counselor. However you should make yourself aware of the leave policies because to long of an absence can cause you to have to redo the application process."
