No matter your job title, you build the skills that matter most in your field. Online courses cover a full spectrum of modern knowledge – from social and criminal justice to sustainable enterprise management.


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 the campus in Clinton, Iowa welcomes thousands of students from across the country to celebrate their achievement. All graduates, campus and online, are invited to participate.
