Vet Tech Online Program Earns AVMA CVTEA Accreditation

NORCROSS, GA. - Ashworth College proudly announces the AVMA CVTEA accreditation of its Vet Tech online degree program by the American Veterinary Medical Association Committee on Veterinary Technician Education and Activities (AVMA CVTEA).

“We're so proud to make the announcement,” said Margi Sirois, EdD, MS, CVT, RVT, LAT, VTES, director of veterinary technician programs at Ashworth College. “The CVTEA are our peers and their reviews are comprehensive. We developed an extremely high-quality curriculum in order to best prepare our students for their respective state licenses and credentials that will help them secure employment after they graduate.”

The Ashworth College program, which launched in 2016, joins a list of only 12 distance education programs to be accredited by the AVMA CVTEA.

To earn accreditation, the Ashworth College Veterinary Technician program team hosted site visits by the CVTEA in February and August. During the visits, the committee interviewed current vet tech program students, toured administrative facilities, evaluated student resources, reviewed program curricula, and spoke with faculty members about program standards and expectations for ongoing evaluations.

The AVMA CVTEA announcement is available online at www.avma.org.

OnlineDegree.com Partnership Provides Access to Free Online Courses

NORCROSS, GA. - A partnership with the newest disruptive venture into affordable higher education now provides students with access to free 100-level online courses at Ashworth College.

Through OnlineDegree.com, anyone can complete up to 15 college-level courses–the equivalent of 44 credit hours–tuition free. The 100-level undergraduate courses currently on offer include a variety of subject areas from astronomy to economics. It takes less than a minute to enroll and choose the first lesson. There are no applications, entrance exams, interviews, or credit cards required.

Like many Americans, OnlineDegree.com Founder and CEO Grant Aldrich graduated from college with his own “overwhelming” amount of debt. After nearly 15 years working with startups, he decided to help build a path to education that wouldn’t be such an expensive burden to others.

“There are a lot of things that can distract someone from pursuing a degree,” notes Aldrich. “The cost is a big one and that’s the primary reason I created OnlineDegree.com. But, the nice thing about online education as a whole is that it can be self-paced, making room for students who need to work, or want to spend time with family. Going to college should be a path to something better rather than a financial drain and time investment that takes away from other important experiences.”

“Course credits earned through Ashworth College courses on the platform are guaranteed to transfer to select Ashworth College Associate Degree and Bachelor’s Degree programs,” notes Christine Jax, chief academic officer at Ashworth College. “There is no catch when it comes time to officially move on to a college for second-year studies, making it a seamless transition for students.”

A certified transcript can be generated directly from a student’s OnlineDegree.com account as soon as a course is completed with a passing grade.

OnlineDegree.com went online in mid-2018 and has already received press coverage in Forbes, eLearningInside, and Inside Higher Ed.
