Miami-Dade County and Ashford University are dedicated to your success!

Whether your goal is to increase your chances for promotion, improve the quality of your job performance, or just expand your skill set and knowledge base, a quality Ashford education increases your chances for success. Identify your professional goals then let Ashford help you develop an education path to achieve them.


Your degree may be closer than you think!

Your job training, certifications, prior school credits, and other non-traditional sources of previous learning can all be assessed for potential college credit through Ashford’s Prior Learning Assessment. Ashford allows you to transfer up to 90 approved credits toward your undergraduate degree. 


The Ashford experience brings together four ideas:


No matter your job title, you build the skills that matter most in your field. Online courses cover a full spectrum of modern knowledge, including more than 20 programs in the Forbes School of Business®.


The Ashford Mobile app lets on-the-go students keep in touch with their professors and each other. In many courses, students learn from interactive digital materials rather than expensive textbooks.


All Ashford students are assigned an academic support team at the beginning of their student journey. Students and faculty interact and support each other in the online classroom from across the country. Social media sites enable everyone, including alumni, to connect and network whenever they wish.


Commencement is an important tradition when thousands of students gather to celebrate their achievement. All graduates are invited to participate.
