Web design and interactive media major at the art Institute of charlotte, there were literally only SEVEN web design majors in the school, I had only 1 class even slightly relevant to my major and they just clumped me in with all of the grapgic design majors, I met only 3 competent teachers throughout the entire school, one quit after having an arguement with one of the higher ups, and another...

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.

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!

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
