Ashford University Reviews
Ashford University was a great fit for me! I transferred in with an Associate of Arts, and then swiftly finished a Bachelor's degree in English in only a year and a half. I loved the experience so much that I decided to enroll in a graduate program with Ashford. In only one short year, after taking concurring courses, I graduated with a Master's in Education with an ELL focus. I am now enrolled in another online university that had a Doctorate program that is focused on ELL. None of this would be possible without the support of my amazing instructors at Ashford. I am still in contact with many of them today because of the multitude of platforms Ashford prepares you to utilize in building success.
Very easy and relaxing environment to select especially coming from a background of visual learning. The professor are well selected and in tune with class curriculum and interactive with the students. They want you to succeed and making sure you pass the class. However, their financial aid is fraud! Be careful in getting in making sure to have a second opinion when ask for completion rate and the means to complete. That was my mistake! I ran out of financial aid fundings in which I was told specifically I will be ok with the amount left to get me over the complete line and graduate. Here I am! No option available and about to drop out. Qualifications for private loans not met, 9months until graduation and I can’t afford to complete school.
There is a low graduation rate - think like 16%. If you are willing to write papers and do discussions then this school is perfect! If you hate having to do the online discussions, look somewhere else. They do accept Sophia transfers (super cheap/free college credit). The teachers are hit and miss, as with all schools. I have enjoyed most of my major teachers and classes.
