Send an email to Srudent Loans Department and explain your situation. They will investigate in your behalf.

If you have proof of having to withdrawal from your courses due to medical it is illegal for them to force you to pay a second time for a course. This school is awful, but good luck on anyone actually closing them down.

They stole all my financial aid for 4 years and now claim magically I owe them more? Yeah good luck Ashford on collecting!

I graduated in 2012 from Ashford with a 3.8 GPA. I learned that brick and mortar schools sell you an education; ith some effort you can get a degree. Ashford, on the other hand, sells you a degree and with some effort you can get an education. Likewise, employers know...

Ashford University Classes Review

1.6
Details
Plain and simple. After my class ended in December, my next class was to start 1/20, after the break. They said I didn't attend and keep sending me emails saying they can re-enroll me for $4k! It's only 1/12...I still have yet to get an answer as to why I'm getting messages saying I have withdrawn. Needless to say, I'm more than upset!!

Graduated with 2 degrees from Ashford. Great educational experience.

Sounds like you needed to keep your affairs in order and pay attention to the detailed requirements of higher education. Of course, the world always needs ditch diggers.

I too received my Bachelor of Arts degree in Education Studies from Ashford. I now owe $48000.00 in student loans and just found out that in order to become a certified teacher where I live, I will have to take at least 85 more credits at my University here!

I am flabbergasted and hurt beyond belief.

I worked my *** off for absolutely nothing, and now have no career and interest accruing like mad. I strongly feel that something must be done; this is horrendous.

Wow! I'm so sorry about this.

I was just informed I had to pay $4,000 to be "re-instated" because I had withdrawn...I did NOT withdraw! But I will be. I was supposed to be on holiday break and next class starts on 1/20!

They say I did not meet the attendance requirement. How could I if I had no class???

Don't blame the school and take full responsibility for yourself. You clearly didn't read your application nor listened to the advisors. If you couldn't comprehend the simple starting process then you're not ready for school.
