"Do not go here. This school is a scam. At first, Ashford seemed amazing. My request for more information about a bachelor's program was met within 10 minutes of an academic advisor's call. We immediately started the application process and things were going smoothly- my transcript was received and everything was in check. Then, Eric (my advisor) said classes were $1635- NOT INCLUDING BOOKS. For an online degree and 3 credit courses, that seemed like a stiff price. Then it gets worse. I asked if we could schedule another phone call for later in the week after I had time to think things over. We spoke again and I was hesitant after reading reviews of this school being a scam, so I asked if we could schedule a call for another day. I missed a call from him the next day and he left a voicemail saying he was able to get me preliminary access to a course to try things out- which seemed great. He called me 10 times in one day, 12 in another, and then the admissions department and financial department began calling me. At this point I found it amusing- my phone rang 27 times in a matter of two days and I had 11 voicemails from them. They were desperate to reach me, which seemed fishy. They began saying that I needed to provide a payment option to pay for the course which I didn't ask for nor even opened. After this, I received an email from my advisor, Eric, expressing his disappointment in me and that he "is at a loss for words and doesn't know what to say". Following that with: he "worked day and night and tried so hard to fulfill my needs" which is complete bullshit. This unprofessional school is a joke that wants your money. Don't fall for it!"

"Like every university in the US they are focused on making money. I would like to address the QUALITY of classes and teacher. Very strict on plagiarism, classes are tough and teachers are very demanding. It's a lot of work, requiring you to always work on material, manageable unless you reach the last year, when you are mentally exhausted. teachers are very quick in answering your demands, questions, etc, and the office staff is decently reachable. I am thinking to start my master degree at Ashford."

"I finished my bachelor's and master's with this school, and next month I am starting on my second masters. I've been completely happy with my experience here. There have been a few minor annoyances, like a few teachers (out of about 40 that I've had) that were not great, and I thought the initial enrollment process was excessive. But it was totally worth it and most of the teachers are awesome. The work is challenging but not stressful. There has never been a problem with my financing in my five plus years with the school, and the advisers are extremely competent and helpful. I don't understand the reviews saying there are financing problems because that's the opposite of my experience. If you read the negative reviews closely, you'll see that most of them are written by people who haven't grasped basic grammar, spelling, and punctuation, and really just don't belong in college. This is why they are having bad experiences. It is not a reflection of the quality of the school. My bachelors degree from this school literally doubled my income."

"Ashford was a good experience in the beginning but as I got on down the line they started saying that my financial aid didnt pay for me to attend school then they kicked me out of school because they said that I wasnt in attendance but I wasnt able to do anything because none of my final assignments were graded so I was kicked out then they started emailing saying that I would have to pay them a large amount then I might be able to get back in so Ashford is not a good school they only want money."

"I would like to give you my perspective of my search for a good college, my experience and where I am now because of Ashford. I have my Bachelors degree in in Health Care. I am currently a retired Physical Therapist. My organization/agency was strongly recommending Masters and Doctorate level pursuits. Since I was towards the end of career as a therapist is was not interested in further my PT Degree but was leaning toward Management. I started with School who claimed to cater to military personal. But during my first class I was deployed for Disaster Relief and could not attend evening classes because we did not have electricity. This school would not consider this as a hardship and I failed the class for attendance at full cost. After a year of searching, still gun-shy from this experience, I found Ashford. I enrolled and began classes. I found the learning and interaction with Faculty and Classmates very stimulating. I finished with my Masters degree and applied for a position as a CEO for Health Care Center, and now I oversee Six Hospitals and several Ambulatory Care facilities. My education through Ashford was a great investment. "

"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."

"My Ashford experience was almost exclusively excellent. I was exceptionally pleased with the intake by eight wonderful counselor. The instructors were almost always helpful. The resources provided were very good, especially for my exclusively online degree path."

"This College sets you up for failure at the very beginning! A year after starting the process to attend courses, having my finical aide approved, and taking out student loans; now they are demanding that I supply them with a state ID (that I didn't have a year ago) and cannot afford to get right now! I have been dis-enrolled as of today, with more than $10K due in loans, and I owe them more than $6K in courses. In order to get that all taken care of, I have to get my ID (which takes several weeks), and start the process all over again (re-enroll). I choose this college because I thought that I would be able to get an affordable education. Now I'm going to have 6 months to pay to either get back into college or pay it all back! I have worked so hard to get to where I am, now I have been knocked down, and have to start all over again. This last year has been a complete and total waste of time and money! Hopefully I can get this situated in a timely manner, and further my education with a college that assist me, rather than blindside me!"

Graduation Year: 2020
"This school is negative 5 in my book. I am currently enrolled in their International Business Program. It is a joke. My school is being paid for by a family member. IF YOU ARE SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY, DO NOT GO HERE. DO NOT TAKE OUT LOANS, DO NOT PASS GO. They have tried stealing my money on multiple occasions, aka charging me for classes I never took. I have sent my academic advisor 4 emails over the past month and I just now am getting an email from a different advisor stating she is taking over, but my old advisor has not scheduled me for classes. This means if I am not scheduled within the next week- I am wasting time and not working as hard as I can toward my degree. Bottom line, this school wants your money but suck at communication. No one knows what is going on, no one knows who is supposed to be helping who. You can spend your money somewhere else. Not to mention, these classes are like $1500 each and they STILL CHARGE FOR BOOKS. Go somewhere else. Highly recommended."
