4 College Student

Academic Flexibility: As an online student you will find that you struggle with time management especially if you work and have a family to care for. All assignments for each class begin on Mondays and are due by 11:59 PM Sunday night, all times for the school are PST so if you live on the east coast you have until 3AM EST to submit all assignments, exercises, and post in all required discussion boards. That is the limit of the flexibility of the online classes.

Online Courses: Being an online student is very difficult but also very rewarding. Make sure you have a good computer with a solid internet connection. The class sites have limited mobile availability. Instructors will typically take the part of being your art director to give you the experience of working in a real world art related job, upholding real world standards in what is expected of you. Registration was easy and the admission advisors are great at guiding you through the on boarding process.

Career Services: This school is very network heavy. You network with instructors and students every semester, where after graduation those instructors and students become competitive working professions and instructors can easily become co-workers or working on a project that you are lead on.

Overall Experience: The courses and professors I have had are all pretty much the same. They are all available from Monday through Friday during regular business hours, with that said there will be some instructors that will not grade your assignments in a timely manner, making it difficult to apply their critiques to the next assignment, in that you will find that you make the same mistake two weeks in a row due to that lack of an instructors critique. The classes consist of 15 modules that span the entire semester (15 weeks of learning.) Those modules are made of up of pages for reading, which is your major content of the class, videos, which show you how your assignments should come out, and applies the techniques from the reading in "real time." On top of reading and videos there are discussion boards which make up the biggest part of the classroom feeling where students can comment and critique each other's drawings and assignments. Discussion boards are usually a mandatory part of every class where discussion boards make up 60% of your overall grade. On grading don't expect to bring home A's in your first few semesters, on the first day you are given a notice of grading which informs that you can expect to get C's in your first few semesters and that a C is a perfectly acceptable grade so be ready for that.

Overall Experience: I am an Illustration major with an emphasis on Comics. While I am still new at this school, I can say that your biggest support system are your instructors so it pays to be very professional with them and network at any given opportunity.

5 College Student

Academic Experience: The Illustration program is amazing. You doing have to have too much knowledge about illustration or how to draw, you are taught the basics from start to finish. The work load of the classes can be very heavy, so be sure to give yourself plenty of time to complete all of your assignments; on the topic of assignments; as an online student you are met with rather strict deadline where all assignments and exercises are due every Sunday by Midnight.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The Academy of Art University consist of instructors that work in your fields of profession while also teaching at this college; with that said, you will find that grading is heavily based on what will be expected of you after graduation. This school is great with communication and community among the instructors and students. You will definitely succeed at this school if you can stay motivated and aren't afraid to ask questions every day.

Academic Flexibility: The only problem with flexibility is the workshops. You have to go to them, but they are at limited times.
