U What you get out of an online education is what you put into it. It requires a great deal of self-learning and staying organized, but the reward is getting a degree from an accredited institution that can help advance your career.

Bachelor's in Business Management, Class of 2008

U My experience with Ashford was not good. I would get an assignment on Sunday that's due on Wednesday. I would email the teacher and not hear back from them until Friday, making the assignment late. I could never get an answer from anyone and the folks in admin would never call or email you back… terrible school.

U One of the best things that Ashford University offers that other schools don't is flexibility. You can take classes from anywhere in the world. You can access your student portal and do homework from your phone, iPad, and computer. They have found innovative ways to make education available to everyone.
