I attended Ashworth College in 2012 and graudated in 2014 with an Associates in Criminal Justice. Ashworth College allowed me to grow in the Law Enforcement Field. Because of Ashworth , i am earning over a six figure salary. Ashworth is a Nationally Accredited insititution, it is not a fake school and you can achieve success by going to Ashworth College. However, you must know your limitations. If you have the ambition of joining an IVY league school after Asworth than Ashworth may not be the right... Read More

I went on with my education, and I was able to transfer several credits earned with Ashworth to a regional accredited college with no problem. I work in social services as a substance abuse and mental health licensed counselor. I plan to go back to Ashworth and get my BA in psychology. Online learning is what the student makes of it .

Yea, don't do it. Ashworth is NOT a regionally accredited school. It is nationally accredited, but due to the school's very weak curriculum, it is extremely difficult finding a regionally accredited schools that will not accept Ashworth's credits if transferring. There is hardly any interaction with the "instructors," graded papers have, maybe, a one sentence remark from the instructor, the course work is not challenging, and if a student has questions he/she must speak with a "tutor," who isn't...

Very poor educational structure. I was in a Admin of Justice program. I had PTSD. They were notified and accepted I would be our for a period of time. Only condition was if it was to long I would be responsible for the fee to reactivate account. They would not have issues as long as doctor would provide notice. All notice and medical records sent. I have intervals of PTSD, so I start the course notify them when I need time and pay the fee. Last time I login and was told to call their number. Nasty... Read More

OMG.....stay away from this POS school. Everything is great for the first semester. Customer service is on the money and taken care of business and helping you every which way they can. By semester 4, you can't even get in touch with them. Have to call (or submit online help tickets) 3,4, 5 times just to get assistance. Final grades are wrong, billing is wrong, and you will end up calling them or the VA every month to keep your GI Bill payments current. If you are looking for cheap and easy...this... Read More

Ashworth College is not a “college.” Google their address and you will find the “school” is an office building. The tutors are a complete joke. Math question? “Joe” will help you. Psychology question? “Joe” also knows the answer. The tutors are apparently well-versed in every subject area...such a joke. Many federal lawsuits in the past. If you want to LEARN, go elsewhere.

Called before enrolling asked if the school is regionally acredited! The reapresentative said yes ( lied) ! Signed up and started my online classes! Found out I was lied too and they are not regionally acredited! I spoke with student advisor and he accepted my cancellation! He said I would receive email of cancellation and get my money back in 7-14 business days ! Im still waiting for my cancellation email! Each one of the reps I spoke with lied to me! I do not recommend it!

After reading so many bad reviews I felt that I needed to set the record straight. I received my AS in Criminal Justice in 2011, the tuition iwas affordable and the books and materials where just as good as the ones from a brick and mortar school. Reading is what you get from it, if I wanted more in depth info on a subject a book talked superficially about I would just google it or go to the library. Hello! Seriously you got to do the work! It's truth that not all schools accept transfers but some... Read More

I'll make this short and sweet... Prospective students, please do your homework and read through some of these comments. There is a reason why people take time out of their life to warn others of Ashworth College. Sure there are good and bad comments...but there are a lot of bad comments. Yes, the school is Nationally Accredited, which is actually held to a lower standard than Regionally Accredited schools. Yes, it's accrediting agency is recognized by the U.S. Dept. of Education (search for yourself).... Read More

~ THE REAL DEAL ABOUT ASHWORTH COLLEGE ~ Alright people, here is my experience and the real breakdown of Ashworth College. First, Ashworth College is in fact an accredited school, if you have doubts, go to the U.S. Department of Education website, click on the accreditation search and type in Ashworth College. Rest assure, they are in fact accredited. HOWEVER, they are a nationally accredited school - not regionally accredited. For those who don't know, regionally accredited schools are considered...

When I need to call to open classes, exams or anything. I always experience rude, horrible customer service. Plus, they update the system almost every night and on weekends. Its hard for people who work to find time to complete exams. If you are looking for an online college. Don't make the same mistake, I made.

Just graduated with my A.S degree! I'm enlisting in the Marine Corps, and my degree is already giving me an extra rank when I start boot camp! If the military accepts Ashworth as a legit institution, I'll definitely be coming back here for my Bachelors!

I have nothing but good things to say about this college. Like most of you, I was skeptical about the national accreditation and reputation of the school. What I've learned over the past two years of completing my degree, is that the weight of your degree isn't in the degree itself, it's in your own professional demeanor. If I present myself professionally, confident, and knowledgeable in my interviews, employers don't care much about the fact that I have the degree except to check off that I have... Read More

I completed my Associates in Criminal Justice with Ashworth College in 2004. I had no issues with their websites nor did I have a problem finding a proctor at the nearby colleges. Tuition prices were great and you couldn't beat the low monthly payments for the program. Currently looking into my Bachelors with them now!

It's the cheapest, fully accredited college online. DETC is recognized by the US Department of Education and CHEA, making it absolutely legitimate. I picked Ashworth as my college of choice not only for the unbeatable tuition, but the convenience of studying when I can - I work three jobs, I would never have had time to make for school if it was scheduled. I looked into other Universities online regarding transferring for my Bachelor's, but why would I? Most of the cheapest colleges online are equally... Read More

I finished an Associates Degree in Criminal Justice through Ashworth. It took me about 4 years because I didn't focus on it, but that was entirely my fault. Although I didn't use my degree, I did learn a lot. All the textbooks are included with the price of your tuition. Your education at Ashworth is what you make of it. The Associates degree programs are easier because all the exams are open book and multiple choice. I am currently attending Ashworth again pursuing my bachelor's degree in Marketing... Read More
