Ashford has a very friendly team of advisors and instructors who have made my return to college very simple and helped me to become a better student. I am now on my way to my goal of graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration. If not for the enrollment advisor's initial interview, I might have missed this golden opportunity, getting back in school after a 13 year hiatus, with 44 transfer credits already completed. Now I have 59 credits and am steadily making progress towards my degree! The school is an online campus, and the instructors always responds promptly to my questions, the material is understandable and relevant, sometimes challenging, but always rewarding. Each class finishes with a final research paper, and grades are posted usually within a week.
Review Ashford University
I am thoroughly enjoying my experience at Ashford University! The classes move very quickly, and they are very engaging courses. I appreciate all my instructors as well as administration. I had a medical situation arise that knocked me out of commission, and the staff at Ashford worked very hard to help me resolve my situation. I am so grateful for this university! Thank you, Ashford!
Ashford University provides an amazingly user friendly online platform. Nearly all courses are offered online and their customer service reps are quick to reply, courteous, and understand what you need. This University also offers special consideration for all persons with disabilities, allowing a better experience for those of us who need it. There is also a specialized team that assists military and military veterans who wish to accomplish their academic dreams.

I am a disabled veteran who attends Ashford University and there are very few schools to which I believe can match this University's dedication to helping their students succeed by any means necessary. Private online tutoring, extended deadlines for special circumstances, a specialized team that assists with my personal educational needs. These are the kind of services offered at this amazing school. I highly recommend it to anyone pursuing additional education.
