Tuition & Financial Aid: Hello there. I'm Alannah and this is my review of Full Sail's Financial Aid and Tuition!

This college is well worth the money. Most of the teachers are or were professionals in their industry, so there are a lot of contacts you can make along with valuable lessons and advice.

I gave this a C- just because the financial department is not the best. On average, this college cost upwards to $80,000 for a 4 year degree and Pell/other grants will only cover so much.

My advice to anyone interested in this college is to PLAN AHEAD. Get all the scholarships/awards you can while you are in high school.

My experience with Financial Aid here wasn't the best. I moved to Florida for the campus degree and was just barely scraping by. I had no scholarships other than the ones they offered and with the grants from FAFSA I was still not making enough to cover my first semester. So they put me on a monthly cash payment plan. I managed to pay them off, but now the financial department is refusing cash payment plans altogether because people weren't paying their dues.

In the end I was forced to move back home with my parents and switched to the same major but online instead. The problem with this is that the online degree is more expensive. and on top of that ALL of the scholarships I was awarded at first have been removed and they have no scholarships to offer me for the online degree.

Overall, their Financial Aid is not good at all. The people are nice and very helpful, but there is only so much they can do with Full Sail's weird idea of financial aid. Get scholarships while you can. High schools have millions of opportunities just sitting there for you. That one opportunity could either make it or break it, and if you really love the career you are going into then its a chance worth taking.

Academic Experience: I am a Journalism/New Media graduate student and the classes have exceeded my expectation thus far. Great classmates, engaging professors, interesting material and fabulous resources make it a rewarding experience.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education and resources available to me are worth the money I'm paying.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Being an online student has certain disadvantages, such as a lack of face to face meetings with professors. However, whenever I contact them with a problem, issue or concern they are more than happy to discuss for as long as necessary and are incredibly supportive

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It's great! You can't beat how flexible Full Sail online is. You can work around your school scheduled your not obligated to go to certain a class by a certain time. You get your assignments for the week or sometimes for the whole month and you go at your own pace. As long as you turn it in by the due date you're golden!!!

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: It is a media school so having access to those items are never a problem!

5 College Junior

Career Services: I did not graduate yet but my student advisers are doing everything possible to make sure that the best options are presented to me in furthering my education. Full Sail University is the best school an artist can ever dream of! With so much hands on experience given, if you fail it is your fault only!!

Campus Resources: The library is very high tech and in with the new/current content. Multitudes of campus activities and events, though unfortunately there is no athletic center.

Campus Resources: The computer labs are very good and clean, though wireless access is very unreliable!

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I chose this school to further my knowledge of digital arts and design. I enjoy how small the classes are but don't love the constant class time schedule changes. Also I do not enjoy that If I missed one assignment I failed for the entire month.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Im in the recording arts program and so far the classes are fun. The electives tie in to what your major is. This keeps you interested and ultimately helps you pass. The is a lot of work, but its not overwhelming. They find a good amount without giving you to much.

Tuition & Financial Aid: At Full Sail Univeristy, I know I will be recieving an education that is well worth the money I pay. Although it is costly, I firmly believe that my career will be fruitful because of the sacrifices made in getting me there. My admissions advisor at Full Sail was incredibly helpful, his enthusiasm about the school and knowledge about the application process made it less stressful for me, and it is good to know that I can rely on him if I ever need help in the future. If there was one thing I would change, I wish the school had more scholarship opportunities available for all its students. I am looking forward to a great 2 years at this university!

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The technologies in this school are very current. I am an online student and I know that the online access to resources is vast. We have accounts with various online tools via Full Sail. We also have tutors and technical people available to help each day. We are sent all the materials needed and they are always on time.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: In my specific major the school focuses on all aspects of music production from technology to theory, arranging and computer science. There are general elect courses and after those there are music production specific classes. Each course is a different angle of music production, kind of like puzzle pieces in which we complete and can move on to the next. There is a lot of work since each class is only a month long. You have to catch on quick and really be good with time management.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am pretty satisfied with my college. The school provides all the materials for an online student and makes going to college online very convenient. The classes are at a good time in the day and they record each class in case we miss one so we can watch it later. Resources for success are widely available.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am currently in the film program, and it is everything I wanted/expected and more. If you really have a passion for film this course is amazing. The instructors all know what they are talking about, if you are friendly and they like you they'll even help you find work in your field! There is no such thing as a boring class, there are no stereotypical college professors at Full Sail, it's like going to class and being taught by one of your friends.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: As an online student my overall experience has been great. There is ample time to complete assignments. If you have any difficulties teachers, advisors,student mentors and FSO Support are easily accessible. Technical issues arise here and there, but they are quickly accessed by FSO Support.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: While the tuition is high, the knowledge and equipment we receive is worth it. I encountered zero problems with the financial aid office nor with receiving financial aid.

5 College Senior

Student Body: Of what I have seen to this point (in my senior year) the student body here is wonderful. They are helpful and informative, have any questions do not be afraid to ask they will answer them. Even from other degree programs they will help if they know the answer or where to point you to. Its a great group of people in a solid school. I am an online student and have seen help go both ways.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The teachers are really helpful. Some were students themselves actually. The classwork load is pretty straight forward just be quick to finish it. The nice thing about the school is that you never have to pick classes on any program every programs already has ;all the classes laid out that you need to graduate.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: You get the value of education you pay for. It can be expensive depending on your program so do scholarships if possible. The school is odd in my opinion on the fact they want you to do financial aid every eight months from the time you start though.

4 College Senior

Student Body: The students at my school range from people that are recent high school graduates to people that probably haven't been in high school about 20 to 30 years. They all seem very nice and wiling to help someone out if they need it whether its on directions to a room for tips on an assignment.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The school has access to absolutely everything except sports and athletic aspects but thats because this school isnt for any of that anyway. Theyre for technology if you want sports youll have to pick another school

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: Full Sail makes sure to help you get your foot into at least one career door. With many job opportunities frequently stopping by the school to try and get the best and fresh people for hire. Full Sail always makes sure that you're up to date on all your technology. So in five or so years when what youve learned is obsolete you can retake any class you've already taken for free, to get updated on the newest technology and process.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Fast paced school that teaches you your skill at the same time as giving you a schedule that you would have once you have entered the career. Because not every job will bend to your personal schedule so why should your schooling schedule. Its practice and good practice to not just learn to walk but to run when you get out into your career of choice.
