Students get real about what

At Ashworth College, we’re all in for educating you on your terms. But what’s that mean? Well, it can mean a little something different to every student. After all, when it comes to online degree and career training programs, it’s not education on our terms, it’s education on your terms.

Here’s the way we’d describe what college is like here: it’s a commitment to flexibility, affordability, and quality, so you get the education you deserve. We don’t hold you to specific times for classes and we work with you to keep tuition payments low. We create an environment that can fit the needs of all kinds of people – those who just finished high school, adults returning to school, working parents, or even lifelong learners.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Hear what these Ashworth College online graduates have to say about their experience creating an education that fit them.

Multiple balls in the air

Many of our students are busy people. Graduate Jazmine Dalcoe balanced being a wife and mom with community service, fundraising, and military activities while going to school. For her, education on her terms meant that she was able to keep all those balls in the air while accomplishing something important.

Holding down two jobs

Debra Graham also knows a thing or two about being busy. Going back to college for her meant fitting schoolwork in between two jobs! Having to be on someone else’s schedule probably would not have worked for her education.

Ditching the excuses

Sometimes learning on your terms means getting rid of excuses and realizing that no one is standing in your way except you. Or as graduate Tamesha Smith put it, “Why procrastinate? Just get up and do it.”

Baby steps

When you’re going after a big goal, sometimes you need to break it down and take on small pieces at a time. That control to go step-by-step-by-step helps so much, according to Lisa Ledee. That’s why education on her terms meant being able to work at her own pace, in a way that helped her learn best!
