4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really enjoy my school. There are a couple of things that I'm not in love with, like how unpersonal the classes can feel sometimes. But for computer courses, it's actually really well done.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: Working with the financial advisers to find grants and student loans was great. They helped me find the cheapest route with these methods. It has been a little harder to receive help finding scholarships for current students like myself at the school and though there is a little help with finding places to get scholarships, there isn't as much as I would like.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm fairly new in my program, so I don't know a lot about internship opportunities or unique aspects of my program...

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Once you get used to it, the online classroom is really easy to work with. Registering was easy, professors are great, and so far the curriculum has been engaging and relevant to my major.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I can access the classroom whenever I want during the class, read the material at my own pace, and really only have to worry about making sure my assignments are in on time.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: I don't know many of the students very well. There are people from all sorts of different walks of life though I gather from the little reaction I do have with them.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Um....I guess the biggest thing that sets it apart is that entire degree programs can be completed online. Not a lot of schools do that.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Pros: Convinience, flexiblity, and ability to move at my own pace.

Cons: Limited social interaction. Not much of an ability to meet with professors and fellow students face to face,

College Freshman

Campus Resources: I attend school from home so....

College Freshman

Campus Resources: School is at home. The online campus is pretty good though. I don't feel like I can say much about it though either since I haven't explored it very thoroughly.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: My initial goal was to obtain a Bachelor's degree, but with all the talk about college tuition within the media I didn't want to be straddled with a mountain of student debt. I do believe my education is worth it, but I don't agree with corporate greed and interest rates. When it comes to the school itself, the financial aid office has been wonderful, and those of whom I've had the pleasure to talk with were of great help when it came to filing for financial aid.

5 College Senior

Career Services: With the Art Institute Online Division we have the ability to create a working resume, as well as to look for jobs through the many job boards. We also have access to promote the work we do through BeHance, and have access to develop our own websites.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Learning to become a Graphic Designer through an online environment has been a challenge, but by taking each assignment as they come has made the workload much more bearable. Uploading assignments is much easier then I had first anticipated, and with the help of fellow classmates, the experience has been well worth it. All of my courses thus far have prepared me for each of those that had followed including the course I'm currently in.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: We are all assigned with an academic councilor who calls us every couple of weeks to check in with us on our progress. Many of our Professor's have also called us during the course to touch base, and to go over our progress.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: My college courses are all online, so I couldn't say how well the on ground campus resources are. From my online experience I can detest that the rate of speed to get into the classroom is fantastic, as well as the speed in which I'm able to upload my assignments.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Again, I'm not sure about the on ground campus, but the within the online environment we have access to many great clubs, webinars and tutoring services. All of these are easy to navigate through.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Being an online school, the Art Institute of Pittsburg is very flexible and convenient when it comes to managing both school and home life. I like being able to check into class whenever it's convenient on my schedule. Learning to become a Graphic Designer, I've come to think of my assignments as deadlines for when I do work out in the field.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: Please see my answer for the last question because it all applies here. All of my Professor's have been wonderful, and very helpful when it comes to learning the materials within each course. I wouldn't have come this far without all of their efforts when it comes to my success.

5 College Senior

Facilities: Being an Online school, I would have to say the teaching environment has exceeded all of my expectations. The classrooms are easy to navigate; we have a Campus Commons area for us students, and Professors to interact with while not in class; there are academic clubs for us to join; and if any of us needs extra help to get through the course there's always a tutor available to help us out.

5 College Senior

Student Body: The diversity amongst the student body is great. I'm able to interact with other creative individuals, such as myself, from all over the world. I've been attending since 2011, and have made friends (all of whom I stay in contact with) from various States within the US.

College Junior

Career Services: I haven't reached this process as of yet. I am early into my courses.

3 College Junior

Facilities: There is nothing unique that I have noticed thus far. Everything is fairly consistant.

College Junior

Campus Resources: I do not attend the ground campus. I am an online student, only.

College Junior

Campus Resources: I do not attend the ground campus. I am an online student only.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It isn't the most flexible environment.
