Ashford is Not Easy--But Worth It!
January 24, 2013
Studying at Ashford University was one of the best educational experiences of my life. It took me 4-1/2 years to get my BA starting from scratch. It was a long road but well worth it. Not sure about all the people complaining about lack of help, guidance, or instruction. I literally had no problems with financing, scheduling, or instruction. I worked my tail off and graduated with a 4.0. I stayed on top of all ...

Some Great, some not so great moments
May 18, 2011
I turned to Ashford for the convenience and the value. I have received a Bachelor of Science with Education Concentration from them, and am now working to complete my Masters in Education with a Specialization in Reading Literacy. The convenience is great! Many of the support staff are wonderful people. Most of the teachers are top-notch! The problems: You do not know what book you need (truly) until you gain access to your classroom, because ...

A Wonderful Experience
May 4, 2011
I have just completed my BA in Organizational Management through Ashford University. It has been a great experience all the way through. There were some struggles with a couple of professors but they weren't any different than what I experienced at my prior brick and mortal school. When I see people complaining about this school, I really have to wonder if we attended the same one. I had two or three different academic advisors during ...

Ashford experience
April 30, 2011
Ashford while it is not perfect, it has grown on me. I think that how much you are committed to the program will determine how satisfied you will be. When I first began Ashford, I thought this was going to be hard, but after a few classes I got the hang of it, and for the most part everything is the same, in each class except maybe the subject. The format is easy to understand. ...

broken promises
April 15, 2011
My overall educational experience with Ashford was great. The online format was very convenient, the instructors were usually helpful and time seemed to fly by. It was quite affordable also. However, problems started popping up late in the degree program that stem from pretty much being duped by the enrolment advisor. I was told that I would finish the entire program in a little over two years. I guess they were leaving out the year ...

finished degree
October 6, 2010
I just finished my degree with Ashford and for the most part it was a good experience. I did have many issues with contact with Advisors; one plus is there is no hidden expenses. I finished my AA with Kaplan and upon graduation was given a $700 tech fee and this had to be paid before I was given my "degree" even though I had earned it. This was a hidden fee, never mentioned before ...

Ashford is a good choice
August 8, 2010
I graduated from Ashford in June 2009 with a B.A.S.S.w/ed. I had some issues with the financial aid department just prior to graduation that were eventually resolved. The emphasis I want place here is that Ashford is not much different than any other university.The issues I had with them were not much different than problems that I ran into while physically attending a Big 12 school previously. The Big 12 school issue ended with my ...

Oh, my...this is not what I wanted to hear. Yes. How are the degrees from Ashford viewed by companies out in the job market? It would be helpful to hear from those who have received jobs based upon their Ashford degrees. The financial aid situtation seems to be the key sticking point in the negative reviews. I had placed Ashford as my #1 option, but will continue my research...

Can anyone tell me if it is true that AIU accreditation status is probationary due to unethical practices?  Or tell me where to research?  I am quite torn between going 35000 into debt with all the conflicting information. is not affiliated with Ashford University in any way.
