First I would like to say I feel that Ashford University is trying to commit another fraud. My reasons for saying this is, as of October 23, 2013 I received my award letter it had dates of when my disbursements should be disbursed. It was scheduled for 11-05-2013, then I received an email on 11-08-2013 saying that my pell grant had been credited to my student account.

I really was glad you wrote what you did. I have been in school for three years at a community college and I am having issues with having too many credits and they arent sure if I will be able to finish my associates in accounting. I already have done a year and I started looking for a back up plan. I have been dealing with Ashford for the last two days and I was seriously considering their school.

Ashford University - Iowa, Clinton - Fake Degrees

Posted: 2013-08-18 by    Scammedone
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 1 votes
I enrolled in Ashford University online because I was a single parent who had to work full time but desired an education in order to find a job to help ends meet. I was mislead by advisors, had a financial representative who changed my fafsa information that caused me to lose my grant and constantly double charged me among other terrible issues. I worked hard for my grades and degrees only to find out that my Master's degree would get me nowhere. In fact, I was led by advisors to take this master's degree program because it would allow me to teach college (I did not have an educational...

Ashford University is refusing to release my degree/transcripts to me. I completed all required coursework and received A's and B's. Two months AFTER I finished Ashford decided that I owed them money. I paid my graduation fee and it was accepted and applied to graduation before the fee appeared. NO contact to me was made about me owing money. This is only one issue I had with the school. If you would like the full story go to http://allyslifelemons.blogspot.com/.

I have been going to this school for 3yrs and have never received any of my financial aid funds.

My friend recommended me to Ashford University. As a military spouse, I was looking for a supportive and better class structured then from my previous college.
I started attending Fall 2010 in Ashford. I sent all the correct documents and followed all procedures in order to attend Ashford. I applied for aid and loan because aid was not enough to cover all costs especially even after the military discounts.
My last class ended December 19 2011. I choose to go back to University of Maryland College because they had a better program for psychology and counseling then Ashford. They...

Ashford university, great flexibility and scheduling for courses, but there financial process can be a nightmare especially if you don’t understand there process. Also the academic counselors are not helpful with situations as each department is not working together for the student. My story is a complicated one especially after attending 2 colleges and I thought I learned by my previous mistakes to find myself tangled in another. Started with this college in October 2011 had issues with transfer credits, couldn’t log in to my student portal, financial aid was a mess and a continuous...

Ashford University - Iowa, Clinton - Amazing college- learned lots! They did mess up the financials a bit though; still would go back

I spent 2 years at Ashford and attained my Associates degree. The staff were amazing and always checked in to see how I was doing (the entire 2 years). Teachers were amazing, only had two I would complain of. Virtual classroom was very easy to use and organized. Financials- be it the student loan and financial aid were all handled with ease with one exception. Ashford sent back my last loan disbursement leaving me to pay for my last two classes out of pocket. This was a purposeful mistake and I did get it fixed after mentioning their department of education investigation. Great college, they are...

Ashford has misled me better yet they screwed me over. It all started, when looking at my student portal I saw I owed a balance. I contacted my FA by phone and email about what was reported on my portal. Soon after I received and email from my FA stating it was a computer error, I am must not worry about it. Soon after that email I received a large refund check, being that it was so large I contacted my FA again to make sure that the balance was indeed incorrect on my portal. After enough reassurance from my FA I cash the check about a month and a half later to pay up some of my larger bills. It...

To whomever this notice may concern:

I have experenced issues with Ashford University, and I am currently in the process of filing a class action lawsuit against the company, notice I did not refer to them as an educational institution, because their primary goal is to obtain funding, and then education falls very low on the spectrum.

As I was researching information and complaints against the company, I noticed that there are several of you out there who have had issues with Ashford University, particularly their Financial Aid Department, and Collections.

I have written my complaints about Ashford before and it doesn't look like it gets any better. I was almost dropped (but of course, they made sure to have my money first!) for...they didn't know why. They came up with a different reason every time and NONE of them made sense! I finally had everything fixed (major work on MY part!) and had 1 more thing to do. I needed to make 1 more phone call to make sure that someone had gotten a name mix up fixed. Sounds simple? Oh no, this is Ashford! They can't have any smart people who actually do work there! That would be silly! So I started...
