Without ranting or raving, I am going to give you the REAL facts about Ashworth College. In order for a school to be "reputable" and their degrees to be recognized as valid, the school must be regionally accredited. Ashworth High School is regionally accredited by SACS but you will find a lot of schools and organizations will not accept their diploma. A friend of mine took an English course from them and did not want to do two of the assignments. He called and told them that he sent them in and that they must have lost them so they told him they would excuse him from doing the assignments. They gave him 100s for the assignments and he didnt even do them!
As for their college degrees, none of those programs are regionally accredited. They are nationally accredited by DETC and even though DETC is recognized by the Dept of Ed, it doesn't mean anything. Before you enroll, call any college and ask them if they will accept credits from Ashworth. I guarantee they will tell you no. They will push that they are "nationally accredited" but do the research- national accreditation is useless. Why do you think their programs are so cheap? I signed up for an Associates degree and when I received the materials, they were outdated and irrelevant. I couldn't believe it. That's when I started doing the research and found out that any degree from Ashworth is not worth the paper it is printed on. I also found out that other reputable colleges and universities will not accept their credits for transfer. Ive never had so many problems with one school in my life but I learned a valuable lesson; do your research first. I finally got out of ashworth and enrolled in Ashford University. Ashford is accredited and online and the funny thing is I learned from someone at Ashford that the reason why Ashworth changed their name from Ashworth University to Ashworth College is because Ashford University sued them because the names were too similar and Ashford University didn't want to be confused with Ashworth University. Take it from me- do the research first, ask around, and call some other colleges and universities. I bet when you discover the real facts, you will find somewhere else to go.
