As an older learner with specific needs, I can say that my experience with Ashworth College has been excellent. I have no major complaints and would recommend this school to others wholeheartedly. I started off thinking that I could get by without putting much effort into the classes, but soon found out that it requires the same amount of dedication that I had previously put into obtaining my Master's Degree at a regionally accredited college. I was looking for extra credits to add to my Masters... Read More in Human Development and the Psychology Certificate at Ashworth gave me just what I needed. There were clutches in the system but the staff was there to assist me with those issues and each person I spoke with was very professional. I am now considering completing the Substance Abuse Diploma or maybe continue with an AA in Psychology.
I completed the motorcycle mechanics diploma program and it was good, once paid up they gave me my diploma with no problems. It was kind of easy but I already worked on motorcycles my whole life. Then I signed up for the undergraduate certificate in psychology program. I have a degree from a regionally accredited college that is highly respected that I did online, I have also taken psychology courses at a local community college and I can tell you my psychology program at ashworth college is almost... Read More as good and up to par with the other schools. I am learning some very good stuff and the textbooks are recent. As for whether or not my diploma will be recognized I don't know. It would all depend on the employer.
I am a real student who also has a review on Barton Com. College where I got my associates degree. I work in the mental health field and need education in psychology. I read the reviews and was very nervous about getting my undergraduate certificate from Ashworth College but because of the low cost I gave it a try. The books were on time, every time I called customer service my call was answered within 5 minutes. They were polite and the education was the same I got with my regionally accredited... Read More degree. Everything I was told about this college in negative reviews was a lie. I am very impressed with Ashworth College and I would recommend them to others.
Ashworth is a very affordable college, HOWEVER, it took me almost a year to complete my undergraduate certificate in Psychology. Why? Delays in shipments of books, had to change my electives several times because they did not have the books or it was going to take months to get the books. I also had a delay of up to a month in getting my final paper graded. This is not a work at your own pace school, its a work at THEIR pace school. Sorry to say that I am not going to go into their bachelors degree... Read More program. It consists of 8 semesters, it would probably take me 8 YEARS to get my degree at the pace this school moves.
This College has been like a God send to me. I do not have enough words to describe how wonderful this College has been to me. I've learned so much over the years and I do not have any complaints. I ended up getting my High School Diploma through James Madison High School and went on to get an AS in Early Childhood Education and an AS in Psychology. I also have a Diploma in Nutrition, Diet and Health Sciences. I'm now working on getting my Diploma as a Home Health Aide. I'm sure that I'll continue... Read More my Education through Ashworth. Next, I'm thinking about Social Services Assistant in Substance Abuse. Either that, or a Physical Therapy Aide. I'm a career student and enjoy learning and I will continue with this College. I'm also interested in other courses through here as well and I've had no problems in finding employment.
