This school is a joke. You get out dated material, you get no help at all, and the assignments are *** and not applicable to the real world. I am taking my masters in Criminal Justice. They lied about their tuition special and now claim I owe them $6,000 more to...

Ashworth College in Nevada City, California - BeWaRe Ashowarth College is Sub standard to say the least

Communication is horrific! I took one course (home inspection) which in comparison with other schools was very poor (and cheap) - remember you get what you pay for! Then I enrolled to complete, my mostly completed BA...big mistake...spent $1000 to pay in full and they cheated me out of $200 for paying early because their office was closed due to a snow storm. They refuse to budge...despite my telling them that they have lost a TON of referrals and any future business from Me...I had planned to stick with them through to MBA...Never, never, never! Shame on this school and Do Not waste your money...run away!

I have been a student at Ashworth since 2006. My course materials never get shipped on time, I was told to call in when I make a payment so they will ship my materials. The latest happening was when I called to let them know that I was up to date and would like my...

Reading through the complaints here, it's really easy to see how many people didn't bother to read a single thing they signed, nor did they peruse any of the information freely provided by the school. Also, many do not seem to understand how any "college" works, let alone one dedicated to online distance learning.

I came here to look through these complaints because I was looking into attending this school. Having visited only their webpage and requesting no information whatsoever - I knew about the cancellation fee, the time limit, etc. that most of the (students) are complaining about here.

Granted, some probably did have a bad experience - these things happen, but, overall, what I see here is people complaining that they never bothered to read anything they were handed and want someone else to blame.

Four years ago, I enrolled in the course for accounting at Ashworth College. I finished the course, with little trouble, fully believing their BS that it would be immediately accredited and I would be able to find employment. As soon as I had the diploma, I began to...

Not your fault. Many people fall into the lie of Ashworth expecting a degree in something they can use.

Little do they know, their degree is most likely useless in the real world. Seems all good and wonderful, low payments, easy courses, yep, just try using a degree from Ashworth, you will be disappointed. I quickly discovered what Ashworth was all about and got the heck out of there.

I applied to a "real" university, which I now attend, but they almost laughed when I asked if I could transfer my credits from Ashworth.

I was hit up today with a letter from the creditors saying I owe Ashworth University money. I signed up for two and payed for two programs in full.

I got my diploma (worthless) and now a couple years later I get hit up with a letter. Do not waste your time at this "college". It is NOT worth the money. Any info can be found online or at your library.

Employers looked at my diploma like I was an ***. Was told by many that this college is simply a diploma mill. I'm finding that to be true. Now I'm out almost 2 grand for two pieces of paper that is *** AND still want more money!

I'll be talking to someone. Wish I knew what to do to fix this.

I am doing the college prep dimploma at Ashworth. I like the classes but some of the customer service reps are very RUDE.

Each one will tell you a different story and you have to call about 5 times to get an exact answer or to get your problem handled. I finnally talk to someone named Walter today and he was very helpful!

I havent had any bad expierences with the instuctors of the classes except for one, her name is Megan Bowen and she was very rude to me in emails. I reccomend Ashworth but just beware that you may have some bad teachers and most of the customer service reps don't have a clue what they are talkng about!

Ashworth is a business and like all for profit companies, it's about making money and that's what their customer service is geared toward. With that being said, I earned an associate from them back in 2005 before they even offered a bachelors.

As soon as they offered the bachelors, I enrolled in that and will have it completed soon. I have no complaints with the school and have had zero issues with my employer and state standards accepting my degree or credits. Ashworth IS accredited and listed as such with the US Dept. of Education, check their website and see for yourself.

True, a lot of RA schools don't want to accept their credits but it's only because they want you to come sit in a classroom and pay their huge tuition and also have to pay for books etc.

I think that's more of an ego thing among those schools, they look down on anyone that got their education online, but if you notice, most colleges and major universities are now offering degree programs online because they see in this day and age, people have to work and can't make it to a classroom. I hate that you had a bad experience, but I assure you, when it comes to money, you would recieve the same outcome if you had enrolled in Harvard.

If you think Ashworth is a rip off, try the University of Phoenix and Kaplan. I could go on with the bigger colleges. The bigger the collegs the more money you will spend.
