I recently just fininshed my course in the Childhood Development program. Sadly to say that I have waisted my time and waisting my money as we speak. The credentials that I recieved are not even excepted in the state that I live in. If you live in the state of NC, and are enrolled in this course, I highly recommend that you drop out of the course or this school and move on further. I had a job interview, got the job, and when my credintials were looked up it said not excepted in the state of NORTH CAROLINA. I asked these questions when first starting here online and they told me "OH YEAH, WE ARE NATIONALLY ACCREDITED and you can start a career as soon as you finish. NOT TRUE. They will not work with me on a discount or even getting my money back. All the empolyer could say was "SCAM". Not to down the school or bad talk it but now what am I to do. Start over.............Please take time and check into this.
Ashowrth College is not a Scam, Sad to here that. I was excepted to Ashford University not to be comfused with Ashworth, different schools with my credits erned at Ashworth I am from North Carolina and they do have some strict rules, both my sisters are teachers there, very important to check with the State Board of Education however, some of your classes will transfer to other Colleges and University what you have done has not all been in vain regroupe and see what you can do with what you have and move forward you may be alot closer then you think
You can take the "teaching exam" the one to get your DPI license in GA and transfer it to NC by taking their required exams through the state. You can also transfer your 300 and above courses to other colleges. Not all is lost. I know the links for the WI website but you'll have to search on the NC website for the DPI license. Also, you do understand this is for daycare, preschool kind of stuff and not for K and above.Private schools are likely to take credits from here.
where were you trying to work? was it a school or day care? because if you were trying to work at a daycare they should have gave you the job..really you dont even need this diploma to work in any childcare settting..Ive been working in childcare settings for over 3 years without a degree...only a high school diploma..bt i live in louisiana so thats totally different from where you live. but i agree with sroses that this diploma is for daycare settings not school settings..bt sorry to hear what happened.
Sorry it has taken me so long to reply, but it was a daycare setting that I applyed for. I would have been working with 1 year olds. I even told them that I had planned to further my education while working to get more credintials. The only response I could get from them is that they could get in a world of trouble for hiring me and also possibly be fined. The website to look on to check and see if the school is accredited in your state is GOOGLE---Accredited online schools in your residing state. Ashworth was not one of the accredited schools on the NC site.
That's crazy!!! They wouldn't hire you for a daycare position?? I know allot of state laws are different for teaching. What did you take? the degree program or??? You may be able to transfer those credits to a four year college.
Ashworth, being Nationally Accredited, is a school recognized by the U.S. Dept of Education. That being said, email or call a person from YOUR state and explain to them that Ashworth is Nationally Accredited and a recognized institution by the U.S. Dept of Education and see what they say. It took FOREVER in GA to get a decent response. The school isn't on their list because they only list schools that reside in GA (not online or distance) when in fact, Ashworth is acceptable.
