Ashworth College is a legitimate online school

AUTHOR: Mckell - (Bahamas)

I have completed Ashworth College Business Management Degree Program, and would like to share my story.

Two things Ashworth College needs improvement in are their shipment of course work and contacting them by telephone. Other than that I had no problem contacting them by e-mail and taking my exams on-line.

I thought it was offensive for one of school ex-employee to label students that enrolled at Ashworth as uneducated. If you follow the rules of the college an uneducated person cannot read the text books, answer the questions and take the proctor exams. I do agree it is easy to cheat by having someone do your course work, but that means that your proctor nominee also cheated. Ashworth needs to look into getting more suitable proctor candidates. You can also cheat in traditional schools by having someone write a paper or do your homework.

Ashworth has no teachers like traditional schools therefore, their education programs is not for everyone. I choose to obtain a degree by distance education because of convenience and reasonable price. The handbook states that it is up to the individual schools whether or not they would accept Ashworth credits.

It is an advantage having an open book proctor exam, but you should not take it for granted that you will pass the exam. You have to read five text books in its entirety. When taking the proctor exam you have three hours to answer 60 multiple choice question. Some of the questions are straight forward some are not. If you do use the text book it takes time, and you need to understand what you are reading. If your proctor nominee help or give you more time both of you have cheated. Maybe Ashworth should look into selecting their own people to proctor exams at the expense of the students. There are students that will be dishonest in obtaining a degree, and because of this the quality of Asworth degree will always be in question.

If you have work experience in the program that you are taking, and would like a degree to show your qualifications then Ashworth College is for you. If you want to obtain credits to enter into another college then you should to make sure that school accept Ashworth credits.

I am proud of my degree because I did it the right way by studying, nominating a qualified and honest proctor candidate.
