Ashworth College Reviews:
Ashworth is not worth the headache, complete Scam
Early Childhood Education - October 1, 2016
I attended Ashworth before I read reviews and clearly that was a mistake. I attended Ashworth for two weeks before I realized they were a scam. They don't actually have books, they have "Ashworth" college books that they send you. I wish I could post a picture because this book looks like the little workbooks I used to make for my cousins when we played pretend school. I was never able to get ahold of anyone, my teacher, customer service, no one. When I finally got into contact with Ashworth, I asked them to cancel my classes, cancel my payments, everything. I did not want to attend that school. They said they would and I kept getting bills. I called and called, never got an answer. Finally, I check credit karma and they sent me to collections, claiming I owe them $600 for classes. WHAT?!!! Now my credit score has dropped and I was working very hard to get that where I need it to be and Ashworth scammed the hell out me. I know I am not the only one, I've seen that I am not the only one. Do not do it to yourself.

No issues for me
AS Criminal Justice - August 5, 2016
I am on my second semester at Ashworth College and i have no complaints. The work is just the right balance of being challenging and all of my material has been up to date and sent on time. So far i havent had an back ordered books or issues with my payments maybe because i actually pay ontime and sometimes, before time. Sometimes i wish they would grade your written assignments in a timely manner but waiting 3 days seems to be the average. I only have 2 more classes and i will be enrolling in my 3rd semester, i am trying my best to graduate next year DEBT FREE!

Healthcare Administration Student
Business Administration - July 26, 2016
Upon graduating high school,I had the option to choose between regular traditional college and online college to earn my degree. I chose online college and it was the best decision! I find myself to be a truly independent person who likes to have flexibility. When I chose this route of education, it has given me big opportunities! I am a dedicated student to my schoolwork but I also am able to begin my career earlier than my former fellow students. I am currently in pursuit of earning my degree in Business with a concentration in healthcare and doing so has afforded me the ability to land an amazing job at a hospital where I have the chance to grow in several areas while I work on my degree. When speaking to my potential employers about it, they were over the moon about it because they know I can gain the experience while working in the healthcare industry. This I feel, Is such a treasure because I am able to have more than the general traditional college student. Not only that, but with the advanced and challenging programs Ashworth has, I have the chance to graduate earlier. In this aspect, this is the smarter way to go. I feel as though the education I am receiving is quality. The affordability is just a bonus in my eyes, its the education that counts. I find myself learning more than I ever thought I could and its been very beneficial in several areas. I really enjoy the materials I receive, they are thorough in what they contain and they are brand new from known publishers. If I was ever in need of assistance, The advisors were always very respectful and helpful on the occasional basis. I am very thankful and happy I chose this school, It has been a truly great experience and I think others who have the same motivation and career passion as I do, would feel the same way. I have no complaints with this school, they have been nothing but excellent.

Ashworth College pharmacy tech degree
pharmacy technition - July 19, 2016
I worked at a pharmacy for years with an entry level position. I had already gotten a degree before this in something else from a different college. I was given a promotion under the condition that I got my pharmacy tech certificate. Still needing to work it was suggested to me to take my pharmacy tech courses online at Ashworth and i successfully completed it in little under 4 months. In the situation I was in Ashworth worked good enough and still being able to complete my goal and actually work was amazing for me. Ashworth can work for you in the unique situation you may find yourself in.

Medical Office Assistant Student/Business Administration:Highly Satisfied Student!!!
Medical & Dental Office Assisting - July 18, 2016
Excellent college!! I enrolled here for my Medical office assisting certificate and diploma and I graduated with honors! I feel as though all materials I have received are top of the line, excellent quality materials that is identical to today's curriculum. Their curriculum in fact, is very good as well. They have it so that it is challenging yet rewarding and very thorough so you do not miss anything. Their exams are also very good, they allow open book however you of course can do what is comfortable for you and in regards to the educational system entirely it is very highly structured for an online school. I enjoyed my experience immensely. This fall I will be re-enrolling for my bachelor's in business and am very much looking forward to it as I truly love their system of education. If there are those looking for a pure high quality education with structure, rewards and satisfaction then I absolutley recommend Ashworth and hope it is a good fit for you as it was for me. Do not listen to any naysayers, in all honesty I believe that maybe this type of college is not for them but they shouldn't spoil future experiences for others but remain respectful at the very least. Based upon my own personal experience this college is an excellent college and I am very proud to have attended this school. I personally give an A+ rating all across the board. :)

Human Resources Degree Program
Human Resources - July 17, 2016
Back in 2014 I enrolled for the human resources degree program. At first, I'll be honest I was skeptical of online colleges but enrolling into Ashworth was an excellent career move. I work at my current job and also work on my studies in my free time so I get to create that fine balance which I overall enjoy so it doesn't become too stressful. As for the materials, they all came in on time and we're on point on what is used today for textbooks and they were filled with useful information that I could use and was also very in depth. I really have enjoyed the human resources degree program, I am looking forward to seeing where I land in my career with my degree, of course I am hoping to advance but we will see in due time. Great school, well worth the money,time and effort. It is what you make it, you're getting a good education so I do recommend this school to those who desire a good,solid, education. I had a good experience and I hope others do too! :)

Happy Business Student!
Business Management - July 15, 2016
I don't care what people think or say about Ashworth because I don't think they really understand or just do not have the true maturity to handle it but personally, I have had a truly fantastic experience. I will say it point blank, it is an excellent school in my personal opinion. I decided to enroll because I wanted true education that I could accomplish independently. I am honestly proud of what I have achieved so far. I enrolled into the Business Administration/Management program with a focus in marketing and its great, I think the only tough part I actually had with it was choosing the electives because they have excellent ones to pick from! To go along with the other curriculum, the electives are great fill-ins because you get to choose where you want to focus on most. The criteria is challenging but its fun nonetheless because I got to learn things about business I never knew before. I feel like you come out a more educated person and also well rounded.If you truly study hard, everything you learn sticks with you. I find it exciting, with each course I finish I feel like I am getting closer to achieving where I want to be. After I am finished with my bachelors, I absolutely intend on getting into my field and pursuing my masters to bring me farther. Ashworth, I believe is truly an excellent school and I am proud to be graduating from here. Online college is the way of the world today, its no longer the future its today and I think it is the better way to go you get so much more out of it. I am happy and proud to be part of it because it shows how much of a person you are to take on education, pursue what you want in your life and make it your main priority all on your own. I think it shows tremendous character and maturity. Ashworth, you have been amazing. The faculty, the materials and the overall experience I absolutely give my personal grade of an A+!

Teacher Assistant - July 13, 2016
Online college was a good fit for me. Why? I got to do some student teaching- in the classroom. Basically the time I was not in the actual classroom, I was in a digital one with Ashworth. My course materials were sent to me in a timely fashion and honestly I found my classwork easy enough to follow and was able to find time around my student teaching time. Ashworth worked for me because I had dropped out of normal college because of high costs-but this worked for me for timing and money and I'm happy to say I am a full time teacher now. Follow your dreams people!

Jobs wont Accept my Associate Degree
Early Childhood Education - June 29, 2016
I took Ashworth on line all my materials arrived on time and any question I asked where answered with great help. My biggest issues is the school is not accepted as an Accredited College here in Texas. So I'm having trouble in some areas of employment.
