I was charged for a class on 2/23/2016, financial aid paid for the class on 3/15/2016. On 4/10 I was unregistered for a class that I had yet to take. The school admitted on two different conversations that they did not refund the money for the class to the Department...

were you trying to pursue you masters in the areas that were stated that did not,have clinical, because I would of researched another online school that offered clinical. I thought when going for a PhD that's when clinical are required.

Ashford doesn't offer a PhD. am I right?

I am so sorry that you are going through this as I must say that I attended Ashford and graduated. I am also in 57,000 of debt but what saved me, was the Pell Grant!

You should have some money left if you have not used the grant more than 6 times? This is the information that they do not warn you of when you start...

Ashford University - Enrollment Services, Financial Aid, Prof., Enrollment Advisors

5.0

This review is to let people know the real deal about Ashford University. This online college is amazing! From my first experience since Day 1, they have been extremely professional. I completed my application submission, and diligently followed all of the required steps to apply for admission. I have nothing but great things to say about this University. I had a brief hold on my financial aid, due to my previous college and high school taking forever to send my official transcript copies to the registrar's office. However, once it was received the hold was lifted. There was no interruptions in my class whilst having the financial aid hold. Everything was resolved rather quickly, and Ashford University processed my transfer credits quickly and efficiently. Nonetheless, I am very glad that I chose this University to guide me through the pursuance of my bachelor's degree in finance. I can only speak from my own personal experience with this university, and would rate them higher than 5 stars if I could. I can only say that the individuals who complain about this school, are the types of people who seem to find fault with everything in life. This university is no different than UCSD, which I have attended in the past. Like all universities, Ashford has the same admission requirements, and are no different. Just because you are taking the initiative to pursue an online degree does not allow you to be lazy! For the former and current students who are experiencing issues, follow the directions. That's the best advice I can give. Lastly, to reiterate, it doesn't matter where you enroll, you will still find the same requirements at all major universities! Also, this university has the same accreditation as UCSD and UCLA. So as not to confuse this University with the Ashford University of the UK! This obviously needs to be clarified!

**Beware** Just like the other negative reviews, the comments are COMPLETELY TRUE about Ashford!!! It 1st starts off great with the admissions counselors being very attentive and then they transfer you to your academic advisor. I actually, had a fantastic advisor at Ashford for the first 4 months. He then left the University all together and got a new job somewhere else. That should have been the EYEOPENER for me to head out as well, but I continued on. Since his departure Ashford has changed my advisors 4 times and every one of them was below average. The advisors don't care about you or your grades all they care about is getting the money from you!!!!!! Basically in a nut shell the whole university ONLY cares about taking money from you and you are just another number to them. By the way if you want to speak to someone because there is a problem, there is NO ONE to talk to besides your advisor! PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION HERE, FOR EXAMPLE IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH YOUR INSTRUCTOR OR A GRADE THEN YOU MUST SUBMIT EMAILS TO A DEPARTMENT(SUPPOSEDLY). THE DEPARTMENT NEVER CONTACTS YOU VIA PHONE, YOU ONLY RECEIVE EMAILS ADVISING YOU OF THEIR DECISION!!!!! THERE IS NO DEAN OR ANYTHING OF THAT NATURE TO SPEAK TO REGARDING YOUR ISSUES, YOU ONLY HAVE THE ADVISORS AND THEY HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO DO ANYTHING NOR DO THEY EVEN KNOW THE PROCEDURES TO TAKE. And yes, all the negative reviews about the financial aid office is correct also!! I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Psychology 2015 and this was in the end the worst experience with a school I've ever been through!!!! Still haven't received my degree in the mail either!! The ONLY reason I stayed the entire 2.5 years is because I paid so much money and had so many credits, I couldn't afford to loose them again and start over. I WOULD NOT, I REPEAT WOULD NOT recommend this University to any of my military members or family/friends DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY, TIME and ENERGY just GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ashford University - A shady school

After deciding to attend ashord I was excited to finally start school again, however I quuckly realized what a mistake it was to attend this school. They are shady with your financial aid and I would never recommend someone going here. They made me apply for extra loans because I supposedly had excess money to pay so I did this and they said it wad all tsken care of. Then the next school year they claim it was never paid and they could only use 200$ of that loan that was around 1200$! So out if nowhere, even after applying for a loan that they took, I still have 1000$ to pay out of pocket! So where did that loan money go?! They take all the money they can from. They are shady and their school sucks!! Their financial aid department is incredibly rude and the people you need to get ahold of and ask questions never answer. They also make you take classes you have already taken just to get more money out of you and when to tell them you have already taken that class they make up some excuse for why you still need to take. They are terrible!!!

That is so true they gave me a class called interpersonal communication which was similar to a class I took at another school. When I brought this to the advisor's attention this is what he tells me this is a different class even though you will see some things that you have seen before.

I hate this school and if it wasn't for the fact that I will be done by next year I would have been gone.

Financial aid office? don't even let me start on them they need all these different statements from me I give them to them early on and then they wait until it's almost time for the new school year to start and say they need the same papers I smell a rat.

Ashford University - Disgruntled Instructor

I am instructor and this is the worst college I have ever taught for. They load you up with 30-35 students per course in a 5 week period, expect you to respond to each student substantively and provide substantive feedback (it appears no one can really live up to this expectation) and then berate you for not being up to par with feedback. Students do not see this, of course, and while all of us have made valiant attempts to provide good feedback, Ashford seems to prefer cut and paste feedback as long as you get it in on time. No longer teaching there (thank goodness) and teaching for more reputable institutions.

I too am in my 2nd to last class to graduate at this school. I am a straight A student with a 4.0 GPA.

I just started a new class, submitted my first assignment and was immediately notified that I am being accused of plagiarism. I almost fell out of my chair and the same thing happened to someone else I know attending this school. She graduated and everything while completing her last course, then she was failed for the course twice for the same reason, plagiarism and is about to take it for the 3rd time.

This is ridiculous, this is their way of trying to get as much out of the students as they can.
