Complaint / review text:
First let me say that anyone taking classes at Ashford University should first enroll into a local community college or one in-state with online classes, you will save thousands of dollars on tuition and far less problems with your financial aid money.
Now the problems, mine is the same as many here, the financial aid department. They are notorious for lying to students about their money, holding funds and giving students the run around. They do attempt to enroll people in useless classes just to get the money. The people in financial aid are very rude, not very professional and clueless about people needing funds to buy supplies and pay for school expenses.
AU makes the threat that if you withdraw it will mess up your financial aid for a year, not true, just have your paperwork completed at the new school you choose and the rollover will be flawless. They tried to pull that on me and when I enrolled at the local community college with online classes, everything went perfect and I got all my financial aid money at one time and within 2 days after the school received it. Ashford is a ripoff. Do the research and save yourself a lot of money.
