4 College Senior

Campus Resources: I find the schools resources very reliable and necessary, although it should have an athletic center.

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of the college as a whole is great and very convenient, as we have all the time in the world to get our work completed, even if it means staying up all night to do it, but we have that option, where traditional schools do not.

Overall Experience: My favorite parts about attending my school are that I have learned an immeasurable amount, judging by most of my grades, I know how to do so much very difficult work that pays quite well, and I will come out of this degree with an excellent career with many jobs.

Overall Experience: You never know what to expect with the different courses and activities, but change is an excellent thing. For an entire month, all you do is focus on one, sometimes two, courses and you get a fresh start and increased motivation every single month. Each instructor is different, but as long as open communication is present and a student is not afraid to do whatever needs to be done in order to accomplish the requirements, they are easy to get along with and work with.

Overall Experience: Full Sail University makes the entire enrollment process so easy and painless, that I would be very surprised if another school of any kind could come close. The advisors and everyone involved make the new students feel very welcome and as if they are already successful, just by making the decision to take the chance and get the degree, or degrees in my case. I hope and pray I can continue earning degrees at Full Sail and expand my knowledge, career options, and marketability even more.

Online Courses: The reason I chose online courses, after attending other traditional colleges/universities, was for the flexibility in schedule, as well as being in my most comfortable place to work. I have a 21 month old son and , as a single parent, I did not know if I could continue to go to college, but Full Sail made up my mind for me and helped me tremendously. They are constantly checking in, always there when I need them, can always help resolve any issues, whether small or enormous, and I consider them to be part of my academic family.

Student Body: I have not had very much contact with the students at my school, because I am an online student, but the contact I have had was across the board in the preceding categories, so I selected average, being all I know.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The only reason for a rating that is not perfect, in this case, is the few difficulties with clarity regarding my financial aid. My entire "team" has done an excellent job assisting me with many options, although I currently have an issue that is waiting to be resolved. Other than that, everything in this category has been outstanding.

Career Services: I have not personally gone through that particular part, but I wanted to rate it as the best, because of what I do know about it from the information provided by Full Sail University, as well as what alumni have claimed. There is a sort of news board on our school home page that is constantly full of alumni success stories and all the movies in which they're involved, etc. Basically, from all the success stories I have read, I put my full confidence in my school regarding this topic and I would recommend this for everyone.

The question above, "What do you plan on doing after completeting your studies here?" did not have the correct answer for me. I plan on looking for a new job AND pursuing another or a higher degree, not necessarily in that exact order. Sorry for the confusion! Thank you!

Academic Experience: Being an online student already has its perks, as well as its demanding curriculum, but the Web Design and Development B.S., in which I am attending my Junior year, has been an amazing experience. I have gained an immense quantity of knowledge, which has only increased my insatiable thirst for knowledge. I hope and pray Full Sail University will offer a Master's Program in my discipline soon. The workload of my current degree, however, is quite heavy, but with my current straight A+ streak, it is definitely well worth the time and effort. I absolutely love the way the information is presented in so many ways, as well as all the different resources to which we are introduced, that assist us in completing our assignments and actually retaining and utilizing what we have learned. I would most definitely recommend this University to anyone and everyone! Thank you so much for your time and this opportunity!

Academic Experience: I would definitely like to take this time to discuss the people behind the scenes- the administration, faculty, liaisons, such as John Henkel, who is my Student Liaison, and many other individuals like our course directors or instructors. They go so far beyond the call of duty to make sure the best possible resolution to any issue, regardless of impact or level of importance, is promptly delivered and handled both professionally and with humility. The standards to which these individuals hold themselves are astoundingly high and even show a depth to them that has endless resources and solutions. Plus, the dedication to their students cannot be matched. Anyone one could ever speak with by calling Full Sail University would make you feel completely at ease and successful by the call's end. It is so inspirational to me to work with these people and know they always have my back. I fully intend on earning another degree at Full Sail University. Thanks again!

2 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I only had 2 classes where credits could be transferred and I heard/read recently that Full Sail doesn't offer much at all in the form of transferring credits to other schools. So if I were to attend a new school after graduating from Full Sail, I don't think any of my credits would be transferable. I think it has something to do with it being a for-profit school and an accelerated program - not entirely sure. Their online curriculum could really use some major revamping. Some classes literally just entail you watching YouTube videos and doing things completely on your own. Some of the instructors literally don't create or come up with their own projects or assignments. There were also MANY classes where you would be required to watch hours and hours (like, 5+) of videos in order to figure out how to do the assignments, but those hours and hours of videos would be weighted at 0% of the grade. Their grading scales are really horrible, too. I'd say majority of the classes I've had so far would have a few assignments worth a large portion of the grade and then they'd have random, small assignments worth 1-2%. They should really work on weighting things better. Instead of making one assignment 40% of the grade, they should break it up or add smaller assignments to help with the grade. Otherwise, if you do poorly on one assignment, you could easily fail the entire class because of just one assignment.

Overall Experience: Overall, I have learned quite a bit - obviously more than what I knew before I enrolled at Full Sail, but I honestly feel that for the outrageous price of ~$80,000, I could have gotten such a better, higher quality education at a different, non-profit school. I probably would have had better quality instructors and more organized classes.

Overall Experience: The best way I can sum this particular answer up is by saying that had I known what the instructors and classes were going to be like and had I known how much it was ACTUALLY going to cost me in student loans, I never would have signed up to attend this school. I also wish I would have realized what for-profit schools like Full Sail really care about. Lesson learned.

Overall Experience: I don't have very much to offer as to insight on these topics, but I've heard that they do a great deal to try and help their graduating/graduated students find jobs or internships when they are done with school. I do also believe they have some sort of alumni network for former students to join after graduation.

Online Courses: Online classes can be a wonderful thing. It allows you to essentially "go to class" whenever you're able to or want to, but that also comes at a price. You have to have a lot of self-discipline and really know how to manage your time because unlike traditional in-person classes, you are the one in control of when you work on school projects. You don't have the luxury of being told exactly when to come in or leave. I'd have to say the absolute hardest thing with online classes is getting/receiving help/assistance from the instructors. It is so much harder to converse or get your point across through emails or IM messages. Online instructors also seem to have a very limited schedule as to when they can help you. I've had a few instructors at Full Sail that only had "office hours" between 9 and 5. That time is exactly when majority of people taking the online classes are at work, so that's completely pointless.

4 College Senior

Student Body: One of the cool things about Full Sail (especially the online part) is that you get to work with and talk to people from all over the world. There are some students from as far away as Portugal. There is a very wide variety of ethnicity and origins in the Full Sail student body.

Tuition & Financial Aid: In the initial enrollment process, they tell you the base cost of the program, which, for me, was a little over $53,000. They told me multiple times that they cannot estimate the actual amount I would end up owing because apparently things change constantly with their financial processes. Right away, I was told that I needed an additional $12,000 just to attend the school because my FAFSA did not cover all of my tuition. Eventually, I had to take out around $24,000 in additional private student loans from Sallie Mae to cover remaining tuition costs for each semester. They were never correct on the amount that I would owe per semester. It was extremely frustrating to have to take out multiple private student loans for my tuition costs. It's also incredibly frustrating that they never know exactly what your program will cost you. I finally figured out what my total tuition cost will be just recently, which is a little over $79,000 (I also have $9,600 from a previous school), so around $89,000 total.
