The Ashland Promise expresses for Non-Traditional Undergraduate students in the following ways:
3. Ashland University is regularly ranked nationally among the best private universities in the Midwest—as well as one of the most affordable, a distinction that we promise will continue into the future.
5. We promise a welcoming, open and diverse campus community, guided by our Christian heritage and a culture of dignity and respect.
7. You will have the opportunity to learn to lead through one or more of these means: clubs and organizations, study abroad, mission trips, internships or applied learning opportunities.
Once you graduate, there are so many options for what is next in your life. Some immediately get a job. Some have big plans, but life surprises them with something unexpected. Some grab the world by the horns, only to feel how sharp the tip can be. Regardless of your life’s journey since your high school graduation, now, a university experience is calling your name. At Ashland University, we have a clear plan forward for you, a plan that will take into account all of your life and career experience as well as the demands of your adult life.
The Ashland Promise positions you to take that next step with confidence. We’ll work with you from day one to develop a personalized plan for your education and ensure it’s affordable. From there, we will connect you with life-changing mentors, and submerse you in a diverse campus community filled with transformative experiences that’s meant to teach you how to think, not what to think. Your next step here at Ashland University will help stretch, grow and guide you to whatever your amazing future looks like after your time at Ashland.
Being an Ashland Eagle means a commitment well beyond graduation. We are deeply invested in your success beyond your time here and will work to ensure you have a job or acceptance to graduate school within one year of graduation. From your university application to job acceptance and beyond, you’re an Eagle for life, and that’s a bond that cannot be broken.
