I take online course from Ashford. I like that they have accelerated courses that allow me to complete a course every month and I am still allowed to obtain a full-job. Ashford University is based out in California, but I am still able to talk to and school rep in a timely manner. Having prior school before shadows, I was able to earn my degree in Elementary Studies in exactly two years. I am pursuing my second bachelors in Early Childhood Administration and will earn that degree in less than two years which is great!

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.
I thought that having a great job and making great money, I didn’t need to finish school and then I spoke with an awesome guy at Ashford University by the name of Joshua Stutzman and he placed me on a course or several that changed my life and the way I see it and others. He spoke with me for a very long time, he seemed like he cared enough to help me make the best decision. Now because of him, I have both a Bachelors and Masters from Ashford University!
