Career Services: I've had the fortune of witnessing firsthand the level of care and competence behind every facet of the Career Services Center at Full Sail. When my partner and alumnus of Full Sail graduated he was offered a variety of prosperous opportunities and now four years later is still receiving services with the same level of care and concern as the aid he received post-grad. At Full Sail's BTS Tour, I was introduced to the career services department. They were helpful, reassuring and down to Earth. Every claim they made was both supported and endorsed by the alumni I spoke with. I am both confident in and enthusiastic about the prospect of my experiences for the Career Services Department at Full Sail University.

Academic Experience: Introduction to Accounting – I was so displeased with this grade when I saw it. I received 90 and above on all assignments and all test except one. One assignment I earned a 33 due to my own fault. I misread the directions.The problem is they don't offer any type of extra credit, none at all. I don't think its fair that a student does so well and gets a C because of one assignment.

Academic Experience: From What I've Heard It's Great – I haven't started yet, but from what I've heard it's a great experience. I've heard nothing bad about Full Sail

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Schedule Is Based on Real Life – Your classes will be at different times, Full Sail is a 24 hour school. They are trying to prepare us for our careers.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Apply for as Many Scholarships as You Can – I'm currently struggling trying to get money for school because I didn't apply for as many scholarships as I could have. I haven't started yet, but I'm sure that my education will be worth the tuition I'm going to be paying. The financial aid office is your friend, don't be afraid to ask for help.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: The online course mixed with my day to day full time job really makes me manage my time and responsibilities alot more.

5 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Deadlines Are Posted – I have been in several classes where you post your assignment and then get critiqued, and several days after the assignment is due, other students finally post their work. I see a deadline as a 'pay date' - if you show up with your work late, you can't get paid the full amount, so, work with the deadlines given.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Perfect for Me – This was the perfect school for me - I am very introverted and the classes offered and the degree I chose coincide with the school I chose and how they teach their students.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: Each Class Brings Something New – I learn something new in every class, I may not like every assignment, but the learning is definitely there. I like the portion of the classes where you critique others' work and they critique yours - you get the sense of working in the real world and how to make your work better.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Great Feedback - There Are a Few Exceptions – The professors are usually pretty good about giving feedback and posting your grades as quickly as possible, but I have had a few professors, not post a single grade until a week after the class was over - In these cases, I didn't know how I was doing in class without the feedback. But most of my professors have given feedback in good time, and there are a few of them that were super cool and gave feedback on the grades beyond the letter grade (even the one that gave me a few 'passable' grades - I really learned how to do better in that class).

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Flexing Scholastics – Absolutely no regrets with choosing this school for schedule flexibility. The maximum amount of time you put into every course per week is maybe 5-10 hours-depending on how fast and diligent you work. Being an online student, I completely plan around my life around entrepreneurship more so than school. Having 1-2 courses per month is a godsend. I attended another school before this one, and all of my necessary credits transferred, needless to say the ones in my previous major did not. I have no faults about that. The convenience of Full Sail is non-comparible to my previous traditional 4-year university and community college combined!

College Junior

Career Services: From Day 1, I believe Full Sail University prepares you for your chosen industry. Your schedule is created around your career choice, literally. You will not take a lot of general courses to get to where you are confused about making a decision of what you want to do with your career. I have not really used Full Sail's Career Services Center, but I am already learning about things in my industry, that I am already involved in, that I can apply today. That says a lot, because I have only been enrolled for 3 months.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: After two unsuccessful and monotonous attempts to further my education at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale and Truman College in Chicago, IL, I have finally found where I belong! Enrolling in online courses, I thought I would not have the time management skills to be as successful as I have been in this school! In addition to providing a degree program in my exact career path, Full Sail University has been everything I need it to be and more. They supply me with coaches, advisors and professors in the field of the class being taught; The pace of the program has also been proven to be absolutely perfect for all that I currently have in progress in my life; and Being a multi-business entrepreneur with 4 stepchildren and new nuptials, things are moving pretty fast for me, and I could not have made a better decision. I am not located in the Winter Park area, but I were, even as an online student, I could still receive my student ID and go to campus functions and events, just as if I were a campus student. Also through online platforms, I can still attend meetings, forums and listen to guest speakers! What more could you ask for in an online college?

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Intense Work Load – The professors are great, the assignments are fair and fun but the course load is very demanding.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm very pleased with my choice to go to Full Sail. Online learning is difficult but the teachers are more than willing to help.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Slow Response Time – I've had questions about my financial aid and living expense checks the entire time I've been in school and my adviser rarely responds and when he does he's never been helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: More Than Just a Student – Nearly every student I've met and goes to school but we all work hard to make it work.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Online College Experience – Full Sail University offers a unique online experience which their sole effort is to make you feel as part of the university no matter that it is distance learning. From the live online sessions hosted weekly to the professors sharing your page online for instruction and review.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Full Sail University is well recognized in the entertainment industry. The University is focused on specific degree programs and from my research excels in those programs. The fruits can be clearly seen from their alumni.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The Process – The schools tuition is very comparable to other colleges and I feel the price for the knowledge you are receiving is very well priced. The financial aid staff at this school I would have to rank as A+, from the very beginning and through out your time at this college the staff is constantly updating you on your loans and keeping you well informed of the process.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Online College Experience – I'm attending Full Sail University Online Program for a bachelors degree in Web Design and Development. What I like most about the program is the interaction with the Professors and the way the curriculum emphasizes a real world learning experience. Full Sail Universities staff has made the application process and decision to start easy. This being my first college experience since graduating in 1990 I was indecisive in an online program, but after careful review of past students success and transition into their respective industries made my decision easy. Now being part of such a phenomenal program I clearly can see my new career and future becoming bright. Thanks to Full Sail University.

Academic Flexibility: There Is None. If you fail a class for grades you retake it, if you fail a class for attendance you retake it.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: At Full Sail all books are included within your tuition. This is great expect we don't receive any hard copy books only ebooks for our computers. I honestly feel I would exceed more in school with a hard copy text book. I would be able to study where ever I am and not get a headache from staring at a computer screen for hours. I've emailed many people within the school to see if hard copies were available but no response. My problem with financial aid is they don't contact you in time for anything, therefore your financial aid could be on the verge of running out and you would have no idea.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Happy With School but Policies Need Work. Full Sail has a 90% attendance rate, which is understandable when you have a full class in 4 weeks, but what I don't understand is how you can end a class with a 90% grade but you fail for missing two class periods. No ands, buts, or expectations. The worst part because you failed for attendance you have to repay to take the class. If you ask me Full Sail is money hungry.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Most of My Classmates Already Have Jobs – The majority of my classmates already have a job, and they are juggling school life and personal life. They are friendly, but the students are serious about their education.
