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.

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.

Academic Flexibility: In my opinion its the teachers that mae the learning fun one instruction for example this instructor made the class interesting, made one understand theinformation given easily and ut it into one's terms they could understand. the instructor was good at noticing how I learn the information and was able to tech it in a way people of many learning style could graps it. This instruction taught through lectures and videos and hands on and simulations, but also can get really detailed and hardly ever sugar coats anything so one is not left wondering when they step into the real world. this instructor tells us theor experience so that we are comfortable to come to this instructor with our questions and concerns. So it really in my opinions depends on the instructor some instructors take the fact that one doesnt undestand what he or she is saying personally which is not the case. Sometimes it is hard when one works a lot to get stuff down but teachers except still a little late. I do think that if stusdents are suppose to be on time that the instructor should as well and not talk about their pregancy or things unrealted to our major. I did not have creadits coming hear but i do hear it is extremely hard to transfer and get them transfered here

Academic Flexibility: Convenient Location – I live close by to the school which was very, very important to me since I work on freelance projects while attending classes. Time management is very important to me and every minute counts. I'd rather live close and spend the time in class learning and then applying what I learn rather than spend the time in traffic grid lock commuting 20-30 minutes each way.
