I enrolled in Ashford University and payed all the necessary payments. After all that Ashford University decided to charge me a $900 technology fee. When I asked what it was for they would not explain it. So I told them I'm dropping out. They then sent in to collections and proceeded to destroy my credit. I am now in the process of trying to fix my credit. I have spoken to people about it and it... Read more

I attended Ashford University. my student advisor called me one day and said I did not have any more financial aid. I said well then I guess I will have to stop for now. She called and left a message for me after about a week telling me there was a small balance owing. I tried calling her back and could not get her. She called me back and left a message I return the call and still I could not get... Read more

they did not add pell grant money that was left over to the stipend check and will not answer phone or questions about it. Financial officer said I should have recieved $1989.45 from pell grant with 974.00 from loan but only recieved the 974.00. They ripped me off. There is no one to complain to! So I am joining another school. And hope that Ashford gives me a refund on the precharged classes!... Read more

apparently there was a "system upgrade" being done that took two weeks to do. I had called several times and asked them what was taking so long for the disbursement and was never told that there was a system upgrade. I was finally told that on Friday three days of the nonsense of we don't know why it is taking so long for your disbursement. Never received a phone call from them, nor my then... Read more

This school is awful for helping you to understand your financial aide. It is the worse. I have a financial aide counselor name Shelly and she does not explain what I have coming back or if I have anything coming back and where is my money going too. It is not easy to read in the format they give to students. I think the school is a big rip off. I think they need to close these for profits... Read more

I love school at Ashford, I did have a few issues with my advisor and counselor and one small problem with a TA that said I plagiarized but that is over!! I have learned so much and each individual is different! I believe no Professor gives good grades for empathy at all! I have had everything happen to me during courses and never has a Prof given me sympathy grades or have I complained !! Marc... Read more

I enrolled in Ashford for a 2nd Masters degree. I was under the impression that my enrollment was based upon my gpa from my first Masters program but to my surprise they (Ashford) based it off of my undergraduate degree which is over 10 years old believe it or not I have matured since then hence the Masters degree I currently have . While in my 4th class and 4th week of the class they decided to... Read more
