Extraordinary Value

Ashland University is a place where extraordinary happens on ordinary days.

Everyone recognizes that in today’s society, a college degree is a necessity for those hoping to get ahead in the world. In fact, statistics show that those with bachelor’s degrees can expect, on average, to make approximately $1 million more over a lifetime than those with high school degrees alone (U.S. Census Bureau, 2013).  The earning potential is even greater for those that earn a Master’s or Doctoral degree because they are positioned for advanced positions leading to higher salaries.

So keep in mind, that when you select a college or university, you are making an investment in your future. You are investing your skills, time, and financial resources at your institution of choice in order to have the opportunity to grow into the person you desire to become.  This investment should not be taken lightly because it’s one of the most important investments that you will make in your life.

At Ashland, we are committed to providing you with an excellent educational experience that is both affordable and attainable.  Our commitment to keeping our tuition and fee expenses as low as possible is part of an on-going effort to provide students with the opportunity to earn an AU degree.
