College Junior

Online Courses: I don't learn well for online courses from past experience at a different college. So I refuse to use online classes anymore.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I would definitely came here again. Its one of the best colleges for fashion in the pacific northwest.

5 College Junior

Student Body: It seems that this school that thrives on diversity. All ranges of ages, nationalities, religious backgrounds, sexuality, immigrates, family status, and economic status. However most of the students do have one thing in common and that's our artistic passion. I feel that in everyone of my classes and it make socializing with each classmate an enjoyable experience.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Lots of fascinating stuff when your aiming for a Bachelor's in Fashion Design

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I Love It! I love learning more things about creating, visualizing and designing Fashion Apparel. The work load I can handle since I love what I'm learning. The curriculum definitely focuses on what is your degree (mine is a Bachelors in Fashion Design) and they give courses for the general education requirements but it is not their main focus- it is an art school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My Instructors have all been very helpful and efficient. Malusa is fantastic- she really cares and if your willing in the slightest, will bring out the best of your artistic abilities. She always is pushing me to do better, which i really do appreciate since I'm there to learn and improve. So far all of my classes have been average size to very small (20 to 5 registered students in total ) which is wonderful. When you first enroll, you can see what courses you will need to complete your degree via online. You are then given a list of courses available for the upcoming term where they advise you on the next classes to take; and then you figure out what you want to do. Its an interesting arrangement and I personally prefer this since it is definitely more simplistic and easier to schedule around then a typical college courses.

College Junior

Overall Experience: It is definitely depends on the student. I heard of success stories mainly about students who have a goal in mind when first attending and keep to it. Also asking questions and for help without reservation. Also everyone who I've met and heard stories of success all understood that the Fashion industry is full of hardships. Only those who worked hard and didn't gave up, actually made it. The career center is on the ball for who is hiring that very week; so keep updated by going and asking the career center staff. I can't say anything about internships since I am not far along enough in the program to really apply for any open positions.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school itself isn't very flashy but they really do love putting up students projects and pieces which is a very nice touch. There is no physical/ athletic centers- probably because it is a art school. The library is fairly small but nicely arranged and has a fully working color printer, copier, light boards, and computers. Campus activities very from bake sells for clubs, a murder-mystery, student government, Appreciation week for students and faculty (free food and stuff) and random popcorn or free stuff every now and then (they really do try and have a pleasant atmosphere here)

Tuition & Financial Aid: The school is very straight-forward, all of your tuition includes supplies for the classes. They also don't really skip out on the supplies (prisma-color pens for fashion sketching, etc.). However, to keep from hiking up tuition costs, they cut supplies fro some classes they don't believe needed them (like any colored pencils, paint or colored markers for some classes). So instead we had to by our own supplies. I'm also in the Fashion design program and you have to supply yourself with your own cloth and muslin. In some of the classes they will supply muslin but not for others (confusing and a bit frustrating). In all though they are really updated on your finances (everything they have you can also access online) and will lead you through the process of getting all of your loans and financial aid figured out.

Academic Flexibility: I have only been with IADT (which is now Sanford-Brown) in Seattle since March. The faculty is very friendly and sociable. They really do try to work with you. Communication is definitely a must if you wish to succeeded in this school though. Currently each class is condensed into 5 week courses; which has both good and bad sides. If your classes are small- its great! the classes are 5 hours long which allows you to finish your projects during class and not lose your "groove". At the same time, some classes are really jam-packed with information. So talk to your instructor with all questions you might have and keep detailed notes too. The classes are blocked into 2 time slots 8am to 12:55pm and 1pm to 6pm Monday-Thursday. Each quarter is split into 2 modules; so in order to be a full time student you must have at least one module with two 5-week classes and the other with one (each class is 4 credits, 3 classes is full term, so the classes have to fit into the 2 modules that make up 1 full term). This is doable, but can be a bit of a challenge if you happen to also be working.

Facilities: I wish there was cafeteria were we could all hang out and buy real food because 5 hour classes are kind of long. also would help the student life.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: It was actually very reliable and easy for myself. I enjoy the staff and appreciate their time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the only problem I have had is that I was told most of my materials would be given to me but I came to find that I have to pay for 100% of my materials.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: I have had all the help I asked for so far. its been easy and beneficial

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I have had no issues so its great so far.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: There are a lot of adults at this campus which isn't a bad thing but the moral would be more vibrant if a younger crowd was introduced to the campus. Typical students are usually rushing to class, or in there own world. a lot hang out after class some don't. id say its typical.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I only say that its okay because I have not taken an online course yet. but I have heard other students sat that it was okay but would prefer it be in class unless needed.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I have yet to find a faculty member that I didn't like. All of the staff that I've met has been equally helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I do like that our campus has career counselors that do very well with directing us Fashion & Design students in the right direction to fashion internships and jobs. the workload is good in my eyes there's not too much or too little. As far as the curriculum I do wish the fashion trade had more classes related to male fashion. the campus is good, nice and clean safe place to be.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I believe that the campus should provide a few more days when teaching the more hands on stuff like graphics, sewing, computers, etc.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel like everything (including the tuition) is to my satisfaction. Its might be stressful but I know it will be well worth it in the end.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus is pretty small. It's located in an office building with another school. There's a library which is also very small and limited but they have an online library which makes up for that. There are a ton of computer labs with some great tech. Not the latest stuff though. Over all it just has the essentials you need. One thing though, it would be nice to have a functioning cafeteria. But that's not necessary.

College Freshman

Student Body: I've only been at this school for about a month and a half. So it wouldn't be too accurate if I was to make any judgments so soon. I've mostly only had to deal with students that were in my class. There does seem to be a very active student dynamic with activities and groups. Eventually I would like to get more involved when my work schedule is more flexible.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Before I chose this school I had already been in school for Biology for 3 years. Luckily most of my pre-req. classes transferred and I wont have to take another science, history, math, or English class ever again. The main reason I really like this school is the flexibility of the professors and how dedicated the financial department is with helping pay for school. They really don't give up. Getting started was a breeze and they guide you as best they can at every step. Of course you have to put in a lot of effort as well if you really want it.

5 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is quite expensive yet it does not bother me because everything I will need is included in the tuition besides a particular type of fabric for a piece of clothing I would want and need I would have to get on my own expense which is totally fine with me. The Financial aid office employees are a great help as well.
