Promote your talent and skills as a working professional when you earn your Associate's, Bachelor's, or Master's degree. Ashford University is a supportive community that combines a traditional college campus with effective learning online. 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.
