I signed a binding contract which established that I would pay $50 a month for my camera and I've never been late or missed a payment. I completed my FAFSA mid July and was told at the beginning of this month by my financial aid advisor that I would have my refund last week. I notified them that I'm withdrawing from the school and they've taken my refund to "clear [my] balance". Now the refund won't be sent for another two weeks or longer,... Read more

DO NOT ATTEND THIS SCHOOL. I am not sure why the attorney general is allowing them to recruit new students. The mother company EDMC trading on NASDAC today for .009 of a cent today, is riddle with lawsuits and settlements. Check them out on WIKI. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Education_Management_Corporation Admissions grossly over described what was available as a BFA program in Digital Photography. I was enrolled and charged aprox 2k for 5... Read more

We are financially in ruins due to grossly high interest rates, loans that were lost, misplaced and misrepresented. Financial aid departments with no ability to help or keep employees. And a degree that is not worth anything, as no college will accept the transfers of any credit hours and potential employers have refused to hire when they see Art Institute as the college attended. We need help finding the correct avenue to stop these for profit... Read more

With less than a year to go until graduation, I was told the administration department of The Art Institute Online sent my money back to Salle Mae and that I was withdrawn from all classes. They said it was due to me not signing off on some paperwork within the required time. I found that odd because being that I was less than a year from graduating I was certainly familiar with the process and would not have missed this magical unicorn... Read more

This place is a terrible establishment tied with Navient/Sallie Mae. They max out all of your federal loans and then take out high interest private loans in your name and they don't give you a choice with whom your loan servicer will be. They give you a week between quarters to figure out how to get thousands of dollars in tuition and threaten that if you don't you won't graduate on time. There were thousands of dollars in "refund stipend... Read more

Dont go there! Dont go there! They employ clever marketing tactics to get you to enroll and then dont deliver on their promises. It is grossly overpriced. Classroom instruction is mediocre. The library is small and inconvenient hours. Loisy library overall. This school only wants your money and doesnt give a *** about education. The Art Institute is corrupt to the core in their business practices. They are now being sued for recruiting students... Read more

Waste of time. Waste of money. They will squeeze every penny because of the corporate greed. I learned how to wash dishes and scrub floors while lazy people watched and insructors just did not care. They do not support veterans. They don't care unless they have their money first. Vets please find another field, this one does not fit for vets. They prey on veteran's GI bill and will not care or provide help for vets with disabilities. ... Read more

I attended Ai Tucson in 2013 and should've graduated in 2014-2015. I applied for the Digital Photography program (which they swore they were prepared for). The adviser at the time sold me on promises of a brand new studio filled with accessible equipment available to photo students (including photo paper, color printers, studio lights, etc). He explained all the opportunities that would be open to me during my schooling such as internships and... Read more
