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.

Throughout my academic experience at Ashford University, I have fallen in love with online schooling. I love the extensive resources they provide students, such as tutors, enrollment, academic, and financial advisors, writing editors, originality checks, and open and private message options to contact our instructors. The resources and instruction provided throughout the courses and academic experience have been outstanding and more than I could have ever hoped for. I have learned discipline and how to read, retain, and apply academic knowledge to my career and daily life roles. I appreciate my experience and knowledge thus far and encourage everyone to become a student, traditional or online learning can be motivational and uplifting while reaching the next step of your goals. Personally, I enjoy online due to the flexible schedule options, no travel time to class, no parking, and so many more personal benefits.
I love the professors, they take time to explain what you are to learn and what is expected of you as a student in their class. My advisor is great, too! The courses are very relevant to the course I am graduating in and are extremely interesting. My classmates are interesting and have lots to say in discussions. I reccomend Ashford University to anyone who wants to pursue higher education.
