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.

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.

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.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Network Is Great – The network is awesome. I am doing my classes online, and there are hardly any problems with the network. I am able to turn my assignments on time, and it is really reliable.

4 College Junior

Online Courses: Easy Peasy. Once you get the swing of things, online classes are a breeze! They provide a challenge, but they give you the resources to be the best you can be!

5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Maximum Flexibility! Online classes are a god-send. You get roughly a week's worth of classes at a time, and you can finish them any time of day (as long as it is before the deadline).

College Junior

Campus Resources: I'm an online student, so I do not have to mess with on-campus resources.

Campus Resources: Doing Great So Far! Online classes run smoothly with minimal downtime.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition cost at Full Sail University is very pricey. But I'll be the first to say you get as much of your money's worth as you want to. I for one think it is worth the cost because I'm learning much more here than I probably would at a traditional University. But even with the amount of scholarships I received, I will still probably be in debt for the rest of my life. At least I'll still be able to get a good job.

Student Body: Full Sail is a fantastic school to attend because you do receive all need training you will need to be prepared for the real world. You receive all the best and most recent technology/programs. But as far as diversity is considered Full Sail falls a little short. It comes a some what close to being equal, but not really. Gender diversity is no where near equal. There are no where near as many females as there are males. But in a professional environment where you are dedicated to learn. Less females than males is the least of your worries.

Online Courses: I Am Not a Procrastinator. I love doing my first 3 months online. I could not make it to campus and I also had two jobs at the time so being an online student was perfect. Tech support always was helpful whenever I was having issues and it was great that I could talk directly on the phone with them. The students were helpful to fellow peers and always networked. Professors answered my emails immediately and were very understanding if I had difficulty. I loved that if there was an assignment due they were posted in advanced for me to complete them. This was perfect because I did not have to wait to the last minute to complete assignments and tend to my busy work schedule.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Expensive, but Worth It – I will have a lot of money to pay back in loans after my Bachelor's Degree is received, but the education is so broad and so convenient that it is all worth it.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: A Real "Real World" Education – I am a Digital Cinematography Major. I am also a full-time actress and director/producer of my own original film projects. Choosing an online school was the best thing for me.
I find it easy to follow my school schedule and arrange my other priorities around it. I am learning a lot, from basic classes to film classes, and everything in between.
A lot of my course subjects are related to the film world, and that helps me retain information.
Overall, I feel like I am preparing for my career, not just sitting in class. Once I complete my Bachelor's Degree program, I will be fit to work in my field immediately, like so many other Full Sail Graduates.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Happy With Choice – As much as Full Sail offers me, I believe I can offer Full Sail a few things in return. I can lend my motivation, strength of will, perseverance, and enormous heart to individuals that want to give up.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Curriculum Is What I Want in Order to Be Successful. As much as Full Sail offers me, I believe I can offer Full Sail a few things in return. I can lend my motivation, strength of will, perseverance, and enormous heart to individuals that want to give up.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Nothing Transferred – I believe Full Sail has in its possession all the
seeds of knowledge required to grow my tree, which is my ambition to be in the music
industry as an artist and producer, to be a cartoon animator, and a highly skilled game
designer.While Full Sail holds these seeds, I am the soil, rich and fertile, ready to help grow the tree of my dreams.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Professor Involvement Is Scattershot – There are some great instructors at Full Sail that get involved with what you're doing, want to know how well you understand the material, give great and prompt feedback, and are generally happy to be in contact with you. There are others, however, that are not so great. Some do not respond to e-mail, or do not answer e-mail promptly(or at all), and occasionally assignments are not graded until it's too late to utilize feedback on future assignments for the class. I had one class (Rich Media Optimization), where none of my assignments were graded until a day before the class was over and my final assignment had already been turned in.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: Class Inflexibility Didn't Seem to Be a Problem – There wasn't really any flexibility in terms of class scheduling. My classes were all mapped out in a particular order so that I would have the required skills to succeed at each course. For the most part, if they had come in any other order I would be afraid of missing a skill set necessary to succeed in the current course. I didn't expect any transfer credits to apply, but my community college math and speech classes went transferred over which was nice.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: You Get Out of It What You Put Into It – I was really into my area of study and gulped down every tidbit of knowledge I could find, so I had a great experience through all of my classes. I felt they did an excellent job imparting not only basic knowledge, but industry-standard techniques that help drive the knowledge home. Some of my classmates struggled a lot it seemed, though most times as a result of not doing assignments, creating gaps in knowledge. To be effective in the online program you really have to put the time and effort required into the classwork.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Don't Wait for an Advisor to Call You – Though the financial aid did cover everything and there was little hassle procuring it, the billing department is often ahead of the financial aid department. Though it was promised that a financial aid rep would be in contact with me for each period, every semester I received a bill for tuition federal aid didn't cover and had to call financial aid to figure out what was going on.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources: Media University – Full Sail is a media university. They had everything ready and available.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Great University – I really like Full Sail University. The online classes are great. I have had no problems with my of my classes. I really do enjoy Full Sail University.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Might Be Missing One Thing. The campus doesn't really have great athletic centers. Being it is a media school I don't really think much of it.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So Far Everything Has Been Possitive. I love the school and the professors seem very passionate and knowlegeable.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: They Are Very Flexible. Full Sail is a 2 year intensive bachelor program, perfect for someone who is passionate about what they offer. They are allowing me to take online classes before I go down in the fall.
