Folks--I have two MAs and a BA. I've paid off my first BA & MA with student loans--it took 10 years. I'm a retired veteran of 23 years using a GI bill to attend Ai. I started at Ai in San Antonio in January. I could have gone anywhere, but I selected Ai because it gets you quickly, directly and deeply into Digital Photography without unnecessary fill. The only thing about this school that... Read more

I went to my local university to get established with them, came home contacted AI to start the transfer process they said OK since your in the positive that it won't cost u anything to get your official transcripts and transfer them. The next day I went back to see where the process was and they sent back all the funds to my lenders! Now AI want's 1,200.00 from me *a disabled person on a fixed... Read more

All of you people are just butt hurt... I have attended the Art Institute in Nashville for 2 years for culinary arts. I also have a job as an assistant chef at a restaurant here in Nashville. Maybe you should find a program that is actually hiring people, and quit *** about what you lost, and not having a job. As far as housing... No, they don't care, try going into the Military and sharing a... Read more

The school is a complete f***ing joke! The roomed me with a 35 year old women,what would I have in common with a older women? The tried to charge me for two dorms! That should have been the first sign the school doesn't give a s*** about the students and only cares about the money! They would send bills to me,I never paid them because those high dollar student loans should have been covering... Read more

after attending the art institute of Philadelphia for 3 years, i can say that the school is completely unorganized and cant supply students with up to date equipment. not to mention, in most class rooms, they dont have restocked printable paper and a mouse for each computer. The admission department loves to mail inaccerate bills to all studentin hoping they can grab more money from them. It... Read more

One word. Horrible. It was great just the first quarter. But after that class availability went down. They didn't care about students that work. If you don't dedicate full time then you wont graduate since they REFUSE to offer later classes. I was told I needed to quit my job if I wanted to continue studying there. Paying so much is bad enough already. And when you bring it up with management or... Read more

I went the the art institute on inland empire 2013-2014. Worst mistake ever. Orientation they told us they had the best technology, and it was better than the "industry". I was doing graphic design then switched to media arts. I started realizing i can pass the class by turning in late work or crappy work. They give you so much work and hardly explain it. most of my teachers said they can't teach... Read more

I attended AiP (Art Institute of Pittsburgh) from October 2010 - March 2011 for Photography. I know that isn't very long, and it's not, but that's only because I got out while I wasn't hundreds of thousands of dollars in debt, because I opened my eyes and saw through the scam. Here are some examples of why you should NEVER, and I repeat with the utmost intention to persuade you to NEVER EVER go... Read more

For two years they served me *** classes taught by unqualified professors. Students are LAST place on their list of priorities, and money is number one. On top of horrible quality classes and faculty, they have you in a JAIL PRISON because you cannot transfer any where else besides another AI. Regret is an understatement. I will never get back the time and recourses lost in this *** hole. I have... Read more

I have learned the hard way that a degree earned from the Art Institute will actually hender you from finding good work as it is now associated with "unskilled." I've come to discover that no matter how strong your material you will be lucky if your resume makes it past HR as, more and more, they are being told to disregard any applicants from AI without even reviewing their work. This isn't an... Read more
