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

I attended the Michigan campus. The place is a joke. There are a small handful of really great talented teachers here, and had it not been for them, I would've had some sloppy work, but overall the level of teacher experience was bad. This campus had a lot of internal affairs that were very obvious. Every semester, there would be new recruiters replacing old ones, teachers quitting, being fired,... Read more

I attended the art institute in 2011. About a year and a half into my education, I was pulled into the advisor's office in the middle of a class. The advisor told me he had been informed I was in a bad situation at home. I was forced to withdrawl and told that when I was more stable I could come back, no problem. Within a month of withdrawing, against my will, I received a bill for $11,076.... Read more
