New Transfer Scholarship: Ashford University

Ashford University, an online university based in San Diego, California, offers associate, bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees* — and now Phi Theta Kappa members can save 15 percent on tuition and receive waivers on technology and course materials.

Ashford’s technology meets you where you are, letting you research, study, and participate in class from a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. And, just because it’s online learning doesn’t mean it’s impersonal or solitary — you have access to faculty, classmates, librarians, writing assistants, and career services specialists to help you navigate college and earn your degree.

This is more than a transfer scholarship; PTK members have an exclusive opportunity to save 15 percent on tuition. Learn more about the savings and Ashford University in this brief Q&A.

Tell us about your college’s new savings for Phi Theta Kappa members.

Phi Theta Kappa has partnered with Ashford University to give its members the opportunity to pursue an undergraduate or graduate degree at a reduced cost. A college education will expand your knowledge, prepare you for the next step on your career path, and build your confidence. We offer PTK members a 15 percent tuition savings benefit, technology fee waiver, and a waiver for the first course materials! For more information, visit

Why does your college feel it’s important to offer a scholarship opportunity for members?

We feel that it is important to recognize high-achieving students for their hard work and dedication. Some students are not able to go to a campus, therefore we invite all PTK members that are interested to continue their education online at Ashford University.

What other opportunities are available for transfer students at your institution to assist them in successfully transitioning from their previous college?

Ashford offers many opportunities for transfer students. For students who are new to the online learning environment, the CHAMPS Peer Mentoring program is a great place for transferring students to orient themselves to the Ashford Experience with the help of a peer mentor. Ashford also offers other opportunities to learn outside of the classroom, such as honor societies besides Phi Theta Kappa that students may be eligible to join, and other student clubs and organizations to choose from.

In your opinion, what is one of the most impressive things about your college?

Ashford has an Honors College! If you are an undergraduate student seeking a bachelor’s degree who has achieved an excellent academic record, you can elevate your degree program by applying for entry into Ashford’s Honors College. The Honors College curriculum adds a prestigious enhancement to your degree by substituting select general education and/or elective courses in your degree program for Honors College classes. (Please note: The Honors College is not available to graduate students.)

Are there any special events or deadlines on your recruitment calendar that you would like to share?

Graduation! Twice a year, graduating students and their families are invited to attend Ashford University commencement festivities. In addition, we also offer a virtual graduation experience by streaming Ashford Universities commencement ceremonies live to students and families all around the world.

*Certain programs may not be available in all states.
