Student Reviews
  • Ashford University is a great school and I enjoy being a part of it. The assignments are definitely a challenge and hard work is needed to get good grades. The staff really cares about the students and try their best to give the proper guidance needed to put a student on the right path to success. I rated this school 4 stars out of 5 because the tuition is on the high side and not all of the course materials are covered under the student loans. Such as all Real Estate Study text books and the science course LAB KIT. Other than that, I really like the school.
  • After having a bad experience with a different online college, I started my Bachelors degree with Ashford. I am thrilled I made that move and completed my degree. Ashford provides an excellent education with faculty member's who support each student. I have enjoyed my experience with Ashford so much that I am getting ready to start my Masters program. I highly recommend looking into Ashford University for your educational needs.
  • I absolutely love this University. Everyone is helpful, the councelors are great. The teachers are always trying to make you better. There are all kinds of online help that is provided to you free of charge. I absolutely love going to school here.
