I began my Bachelor's program in eBusiness iback in February of last year (2013).  There are 8 modules with 5 courses each for a total of 40 courses or 120 credit hours.  I got the first 4 modules completed when I was dismissed from the college for alleged plagiarism.  Of course, a person has to take the majority of general electives in the first half.  I was ready to start the second half which consisted of the required business courses.  I was excited to finally be starting on the business courses which I like the best and do well in.  My GPA was 3.55 which I feel is a good GPA.

Let me say how disappointed and let down I feel that I have been dismissed.  I wasted 1 year of my time and now owe $4,600.00 for nothing.  When they began looking at a second assignment that I did, I had already received an Academic Probation letter.  So of course that second assignment was going to get dinged too.  

I have moved on and am now working on a 2 year Human Resources degree at another institution.  I am very disappointed with Ashworth and they are not what I expected them to be.  I believe I was penalized unfairly because each professor has his/her own expectations on what constitutes plagiarism.  I don't feel that I am guilty.  Just very let down.

Response to Online Teacher

AUTHOR: Anonymous - ()

I paraphrased what I read from my sources and documented my sources at the end of each essay.  I do not understand it.

question

AUTHOR: Jeanski - ()

Could you say more about the nature of the alleged plagiarism? I'm curious because I teach online courses (not for Ashworth) and you're right - teachers can be somewhat biased in what they consider plagiairsm.
