Student & Graduate Reviews

5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2019

Ashord University is a great school for online students, and anyone thinking about taking online course. Each instructor I had was able to work with my military schedule, and helped me to understand my assignments. This school made me love online learning and I would rather do that than in the classroom.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2010

College is a great experience, but it can be expensive so picking an affordable school and a practical major is very important. Learning online was also a great experience especially since I was working a full time job, so I would recommend an online university for adult learners.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

It was convenient at the time, but in retrospect was very expensive. I also felt like I was encouraged to pursue a degree and was promised help finding a job, but their career center was not much help. In fact I am still not working in the area that I have my degree in.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2008

The online program is wonderful! Made it easy to attend and set your own pace. Important to be in frequent contact with the professors for success.
3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

It seems a little easy doing it online. I was able to work 50hrs a week and still be a full time student.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

Easy to attend, no issues with financing and paying for things. You are not able to control which classes you take and you don't have to file for Financial Aid every year, the Financial Aid Advisor does it for you. It is just as demanding as a regular college.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

In my heart, I believe Ashford to be one of the best Institutions in the wold. Not only are the Instructors helpful, but the curriculum is one that will prepare you for the future without all the headaches and stress of being in a physical classroom. If you are a person who has a lot going on such as job, family and outside activities, then Ashford definitely deserves a look.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2010

The MBA program at Ashford University was rigorous and challenging. It was very fast past paced and challenged me in both individual and team skills. It also improved my time management and organizational skills because you both in order to be a successful student and complete the program. It opened the doors to internships and allowing me the opportunity to improve and grow my skills in the business field.

Degree: Education Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

I am satisfied with Ashford. The courses has helped me to become an effective teacher and leader in my school setting. I was able to take my love for teaching and develop into a teacher with the knowledge and confidence to inspire, teach, and move students further in their education process.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

After I graduated from Liberty University with both my AA and BS degrees in Criminal Justice I wanted a change in career fields. Ashford University has been a great university. They go out of their way to accommodate all students who work fulltime and have a family. Working towards my Masters in Healthcare Administration has been challenging. I also wanted to be a good example to my kids on how having a good education is important, and you are never to old to go back to school.
