Ashford University


Is Ashford University a good college to go to for a teaching degree?

I was just wondering if any one has attended or taken any online classes from Ashford University? Is it a good college to go to for a teaching degree? Also, does the State of Arkansas recognize them?


I currently go to Ashford University. I love the school and the schedule. The only thing that gets a little rough for me is that all courses are condensed into a 6 week period, so you are reading a whole book in half the time you would normally be able to. Some co ruses require 2 or 3 books. All States will recognize your degree from Ashford but the important question is the teacher requirements for your state. Some require only a BA to teach some require a Masters degree. The Teacher certification does not come from Ashfrod directly it is in conjunction with one of their partner schools Rio Salado College in Arizona which is also a good school.


Does anyone have any information on an online school called Ashford University?

I am interested in enrolling for an online degree with Ashford University in Education. I am not sure if they are legitimate though. They seem like it and their website says they also have campuses available. Has anyone taken courses online or on campus through them? Any information would be helpful. Thank you!

I am currently an Ashford student online. What type of questions do you have? I am very happy with my program and with this school. They are regionally accredited and one of the most affordable online programs out there. My enrollment advisor was great too!

I earned my MBA online from Ashford. I think it's a very good school and I'm actually pusuing another online degree from there. It is accredited which is the biggest thing you have to consider when attending an online school. I have been to the actual campus in Iowa and was very impressed with the instructors and other students.


Ashford University.Regionally Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission? Quick Question what does that mean?

What does it mean when a Online University is Regionally Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission? The University is Ashford, They have a main Campus.


MANY online programs are not accredited, the HLC IS a credible agency, the same one that accredits any decent college or university (actual and online) in that area of the country. While online degree programs are generally less prestigious, having any degree from a regionally or nationally accredited school is valid. The fact that it's online is another discussion but the HLC is a regional accrediting agency and is 100% legit.
