Complaint / review text:
Ashford is worse than University of Phoenix! Bunch of scumbags. I transferred from University of Phoenix to Ashford University in April 2011 and have had nothing but problems. I rarely received call backs or emails from my enrollment adviser or my financial adviser, my academic adviser. I went through my entire enrollment and financial aid process by myself. I have passed all my classes, I have turned in all the necessary documentation, and I have revoked Ashford from having anything to do with my financial aid. However, every time my loans and grants would come in, the school would take money and send me the amount that was left over. When you revoke a school to be in charge of your funding, then that means that you are to receive the money and then pay your own tuition.
Coming from another school, I knew what I should have been getting from loans and grants and what should have been disbursed to me. Attending Ashford, I was getting less than half of what I was getting at University of Phoenix. I have had a credit sitting in my school account for a month now, yet no one can seem to tell me why it has not been released to me. Not only does Ashford charge more in tuition, their financial department is a complete joke. The advisers give the same canned answers when you can even get them to respond. No one says the same thing. They pass the buck to the next person and some of them are just flat out morons. I would never recommend this crap school to anyone.
