As a student who left Ashworth for lack of transferability let me provide some advice when looking for college help. I can say with over 7 colleges under my belt as a result over the term of my years to completing a degree program. No, I hadn't failed, told to leave, or administratively separated from any college. I am retired military and had relocated in my tenure of service to complete a degree over time. First and foremost, read, read, read, any college catalog prior to applying. Ask around, do RESEARCH!!! Call colleges and talk specifically with the admissions, copy all classes that you would need to transfer from one college to the next. Majority of college websites have a transfer credit listing and associated colleges to which they accept. Demographically most colleges are separated by regions from east to west and vice versa. Some colleges will accept almost any transcript, in most cases classes do not transfer credit, as the college needs to make money, and requirements that need to be met by that specific college. If memory serves me the DoE has/had a map of school regions for monetary supplementation and is/was a great source to follow for accreditation by region. As with Ashworth, no credits would have been taken for the colleges I had attended. So I stopped for the benefit of using my funds towards a degree I was earning that would transfer. Again, some colleges on the east coast did not take my credits from the central west college I had attended, back to square one of completing credits. At a later point I started reviewing each college for the best options and transfer credits before filing one admission form and starting classes (the ominous catch all from admissions "sure they will transfer no problems!"). Another item that helped after I attended Ashworth and attending other colleges is if you feel hands on training is not sufficient for the course, contact a local college and/or apply for student work towards the field of study, or outside agency. By large a vast majority of students have taken small internships or work programs through vendors to help build a foundation to what you are learning. Case in point during after class hours instructors were looking for students to help in projects with small resources. Butler Comm. College accepted that I was a student through Ashworth and needed the knowledge. The staff was very helpful and, although I was not an intern or working through the college... I had the opportunity to work first hand in my career path. A side note, For Profit colleges are just that, they want money and will drive a degree plan to make the greater income for the college. Although most FPC hire instructors that are well paid in the private sector for leading application/standardization to provide excellent workforce application. I have seen a total of four Ashworth degree holders, all have advanced in their experience, increased job related skills to become marketable, and starting pay was higher then those that walked in from the street. The person makes the degree. Many jobs look for the persistent, educated, follow through worker/manager employee...that you had the tenacity to finish what you start. The college was not a place holder to the job. Applying the knowledge and workplace efficacy carries the weight. Take a look into the mainstream business or corporation, read articles from top executives and HR, talk to recruiters, and take a pronounced effort into your workforce. The guidance is out there. In the end its you that will make the grade and stand out from the rest.

There are a lot of things that differentiate this college from regular colleges. for one thing a lot more work is involved, and this college i think serves a useful purpose for working individuals. i have never had any issues with staff and i have been able to keep up with the courses, if you're not a self learner and arent willing to put in a substantial amount of effort to succeed this college isn't or you. The learning material provided are of good quality.

It's hard to find much value in a degree that isn't current. I started this program in 2010 and they sent out 3 1/2 floppies in books that talked about Windows 2k & ME. The office XP class was for office 2000!?!? Yes, you can pick up small pointers but you will not be able to support the current technology in the field. You pay for what you get. As far as support, you will NEVER talk to nor hear from your so called teacher/professor. You will only talk to other students that happen to live in the area and are working off their degree. If you read carefully, they never tell you what materials you will use. The copyright on the books are from 2000-2002 for an IT degree in 2010.

I graduated high school from this particular program and I can assure you that it is not a scam. I dropped out of school (unfortunate rebellious decision at the time) and I had no real options. The high schools in my area stated that I was too old to go (just turned 19) and that I needed to get to an alternative and that I would have to pay for that. I then saw the commercial about PCDI and I gave them a call. After speaking with someone for about an hour I decided to sign on. The coursework was hard and I learned a lot. Before dropping out of school I was a 4.0 student and through this program I was able to salvage a 3.6. Small hit but I did that to myself. Anyhow, I graduated and I have felt great ever since. This was took place at a time when there was no online classes really, or at least not too popular so I was ridiculed by many people. The only thing that shut them up was the fact that I got my Diploma, not G.E.D and got into every college I signed on for. This is not a scam. You get out of it what you put in!

I would not recommend this college to anyone. Its a money mill of some sort. From my time with Ashworth they came out to be a greedy company looking to make a quick buck on mostly lower income students who know no better!! BOYCOTT ASHWORTH A.K.A. PCDI! They hold degree and transcripts hostage!!! Student Beware!!!!
