Tuition & Financial Aid at Southwest University of Visual Arts - Albuquerque: Tuition is ridiculously high and they are so bad about keeping track on financial aid I've been held back a year because of it.

Academic Flexibility at Southwest University of Visual Arts - Albuquerque: The teachers and professors are great but the admin sticks it to you in the butt. I'm maxed out on loans and still have to pay thousands out of pocket to graduate.

Career Services at Southwest University of Visual Arts - Tucson: Once you are done with your education the school will start helping you finding jobs that fit with your degree. I've heard a lot of stories about students landing jobs. Which gets me pumped to finish school and start working at a job i will love.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Southwest University of Visual Arts - Tucson: The Financial aid progress is pretty straight forward you submit some paperwork and hope for the best if you qualified. As for the tuition, its pretty high. Which is reasonable since it is a private university and the the teachers their care a lot about our progress.

Online Courses at Southwest University of Visual Arts - Tucson: As far that i know SUVA does not have any online courses, but rather all classes are in a classroom which in my opinion is better since you get that instant communication between teacher and student. To better explain why i don't like online classes is that i had to take one at my community college. No video or audio what so ever and the only thing that was available is a forum type blog. It would take hours to get a response from the teacher in this situation and i missed plenty of deadlines which in the end i failed the class.

Academic Flexibility at Southwest University of Visual Arts - Tucson: It shows that with almost a year on my belt with this school my drawing skills have improved a lot. My community college didn't have the small class environment which made it hard to get one on one time to learn the material better. At SUVA the class size is small enough that the teacher is able to help all of us. My understanding of art has improved dramatically through out this first year. Of course there's a downside, which is the cost of attending. Recently i have been thinking about drooping out since the amount of loans i need to get his pretty high, but no other school in Tucson has a good animation course. So in the end i decide to go full force and apply to every scholarship as humanly possible since for the first time i feel that i can accomplish my goal at this school.
