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

I attended the Art Institute of Charleston from January 2013-April 2013, and somehow according to them I owe around $10,000 to a total of three different companies one of which being the Art Institute. In the end of 2013 I was contacted to set up payements to the Art Institute and it was to be directly taken out of my mothers checking account each month. Then starting in September of 2014 my...

I was looking to get into an Art school. After submitting information via the internet to the Art Institute, I was called by an "advisor". He kept me on the phone for an interview for over an hour. Then, he tried to *** me into applying online while I was on the phone with him. I wasn't interested so he calls in his "supervisor" to get on the phone. The supervisor asks if I'm going to apply...

Like many people, I had no idea what I wanted to do out of school. I worked for a year and then lost my job after the company I was at went under. I was out of work and looking for options. I always liked the arts and after some reps from AI came to my photography class and took all of our information, I had been getting emails from them and decided to look into it on a whim of hopelessness. I... Read more

Be wary of the no-interest loans that the Art Institute offers to keep you in school. If you cannot get enough loans from the federal government to pay for your classes. They will give you loans to keep you in school about the amount you can borrow. The problem you start paying immediately. Students have monthly payments of $400-$800 per month that they owe to the school. If they don't pay they... Read more

I attended the Art Institute in Denver, Colorado. I was there three years, and I was told my loans would pull me through to graduation. That was a lie. If I could not pay the ridiculous $5, 000+ for the three classes I was taking that quarter (after being told it would be taken care of), I would be forced to drop. So I dropped. And the bills began rolling in. Now because of the last quarter... Read more

The company used to send admissions people and career services people on trips if you hit high numbers. The career services director had us lie about the numbers to win the trip. The numbers new people see are inflated. Most people didn't find jobs. Big scam. If the accreditation body knew about this, it would shut down the school. Admissions let anyone in including retarded kids. Their... Read more
