The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) has denied Ashford University’s application to continue advertising and recruiting in state. The school’s courses and degree programs are entirely online. WSAC made this decision after reviewing Ashford’s most recent application for re-authorization.
Currently, there are approximately 1,070 Washingtonians enrolled in Ashford. This denial does not affect currently enrolled Washington students. These students can still finish their degrees at Ashford, which can continue to enroll Washington students. WSAC’s decision also does not affect Ashford’s accreditation status or the school’s participation in federal student loan programs. The school does not participate in state financial aid programs.
