Student & Graduate Reviews

"Ashford's curriculum is up to par with other universities on-campus programs. The difference is, when attending college on campus, you don't have to write so many academic research papers. Being forced to write this many papers actually makes you apply yourself. I can appreciate the challenge Ashord has brought into my life, but it was totally unexpected.I'm in my fifth course, trying to keep up with the pace and every other week, major writing assignments are due. I was a day late in one of my courses and my professor deducted 30 points. In my previous courses, they only took off 10 points for each day late.Overall, this has been a great learning experience and I'm more than happy with Ashford University. Please note: Unless you are truly passionate about pursuing a degree, no college will ever work out for you. If you are serious, any college you choose will back you up.Most people who have bad experiences, bring it on themselves- by not being sincere and passionate about their goals. Obama visited Ashford earlier this year because he knew it was a good college to speak to. I'm extremely proud that I'm an Ashford University Saint!"

"I completed the online MBA program in October, 2007 and found the experience overwhelmingly positive.If I had any criticism of the program, it would be that the grading was not tough enough. Otherwise, the volume and content of the material covered was challenging enough and several of the instructors, most notably Father Dave, were outstanding.I rejected most of the MBA programs I considered because of their emphasis on "collaborative learning" or team based assignments and grading. I believe that such programs tend to attract and breed freeloaders and I was determined to avoid this. I chose Ashford because their classes were all based on individual performance and I believe I made the right choice."

"I am currently an online student with Ashford University and I will say that I have had a wonderful experience. My enrollment advisor, [NAME REDACTED] is the best and very knowlegable.My academic advisor [NAME REDACTED] can't be anymore helpful. I have been blessed to have wonderful teachers and classmates. I am really thankful that I came across this school. I highly recommend it."

"I have been a student with Ashford for a few months now. I have lost interest in the university and have started my search for a new one. I am lucky to get a resonse to e-mails and when I do, my questions are never answered. The books we order are not covered under financial aid, we must purchase them on our own, and they do not correlate with the courses that we take. My experience with Ashford is not positive. Many students in my current class have left the university for the same or similar reason."

"I enrolled in Ashford University's online Master's of Arts in Teaching and Learning with Technology program last July. This distance learning format has been great for me to work around. The teachers are excellent and the counseling support is very good. I would definitely recommend Ashford University to anyone looking for a distance learning program."

"I was really scared about going back to college. My counselor was soooooo helpful, he was such an inspiration, he answered all my questions and guided me along the process. Classes can be a little bit tough at times but I am just now getting through my first month. I feel like for the first time in my life I will be able accomplish a degree."
