4 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: The fees are comparable to other Universities. I did not have the opportunity to use the Financial Aid. I am in a different country. When I spoke to the individuals there they were very helpful in answering the questions I had and filling out forms that I needed completed in a timely matter. Very good service.

Academic Flexibility: As on online student, I was very nervous at first - not knowing how/what to expect. My professors do interact with myself and the other students. I gave the flexibility an A- because when it comes to the weekends, the professors are pretty much non-existent and as a working professional, most of my weekend time is dedicated to homework. If I have questions after Friday morning, I won't get a response until Monday afternoon and that can be frustrating at times, other than that, they are very quick to respond and set correct expectations.

Academic Experience: The programs are good, the workload is intense, the facilities are the best part.

1 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: They hardly took any of my credits because they want you specifically take their classes, even if they do not apply to your degree. After being in college for two years and transferring, they are having me start from scratch again. Also, class times are limited, which leads to an inflexible work schedule.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: It is difficult to get a tutor, and they typically do not accept walk ins. The workshops are really just schedules when student can come in to finish work, rather than added lesson.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: School athletics, gym and career workshops. Some are not very helpful and only convenient if you live nearby since the shuttle service is horrible.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: the school has a great library and computer lab. there are athletic teams to join and the school has special events all year. there is always something to do.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: the illustration department is great. not only are the classes great they push you and help you develop a higher quality of work. they also prepare you for the professional world. they also have workshops that you can attend free of charge.another great thing is the spring show. the spring show allows you to enter work you have done in class and if its accepted it gets in the show for companies to see your work and possibly land you a job.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: the classes offered are great, they all have something to take you to the next level and better your work. class registration is a fairly easy process, but getting in touch with my student advisor is a hassle.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: I'm an online student so my view of the student body is a little different. It does seem fairly diverse. People have been very friendly and willing to communicate.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Tuition is very expensive and they like to tack on quite a few fees. I did receive a good deal of financial aid however and they have payment plans which is nice.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I've had a lot of help from professors and advisors in this school. It is heavily based in money, it's expensive and I've heard complaints of saying the teachers don't care. So far, I've had not had this experience. Everyone has been very helpful. Their online system is great. It's very efficient and organized unlike other schools I've attended. I've learned so much already too. Really the only downside to the school is the money.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online courses aren't for everyone. Sometimes physically seeing or interacting with people or artwork helps a person understand what needs to be fixed or corrected in order to create a better product.

Academic Experience: Every teacher is going to be different, some of them make an effort to come to you, some of them you have to push your way through to grab a hold of them. All of them know what they're talking about though. There are very few instructors that haven't worked in their respective fields with big names. Each and every one is going to grade you fairly and, as you move on, according to industry standards. It's really a great place to be if you intend to really get out and do something.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: My school is not the best school in the world. However, if I didn't go online, I couldn't go to school at all, so this is how it works for me. It's a matter of making the most of what's available.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The biggest downside of my school is that they don't offer much by way of financial assistance, and the tuition is so high that I can't afford to go full time year round. Also, I can't afford my supplies. I'm a single parent with four children---it would be nice to feel like there was some extra support going on.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: The university is not very progressive about making the online experience interactive. It could really use a revamping, as the peer to peer and prof/student interactions are limited to message boards. Very 1995.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Some classes are very useful, while others seem repetitive and not so full of knowledge. For example, if you take the first class in a series, and take the second class. The second class leans heavily toward repeating everything over again more than progressing on what you learned in the first class.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I'm an online student, and every week assignments are due, but its up to me when I work on them during the week.

College Sophomore

Student Body: I am an online student so my interactions are only with other online students. I've never met anyone with a bad attitude. Everyone seems to have the same attitude and excitement for learning.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The fashion merchandising program is supposed to be one of the best in the country, I just wish the school had a more selective entrance policy. It can be extremely frustrating to constantly be working around students who don't care or don't deserve to be there.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They really need to offer more financial aid for students as private school is expensive. The financial aid department is nice and helpful.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: The online program is one of the very best. there's always room for improvements.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I am studying Fashion Design and around the Bay Area, it seemed to be the only school that is accredited and will give you a chance to be featured in the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week if you are in the Masters Program.
