3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: School Grade – i got a good bit of finanical aid even though I know that the school is an expensive school to attend. I know that the education will be worth the money, but hoping the job placement will also be good as well. wish the school had better loans that will help the students attend and be able to survive with the income that they have.

Student Body: Online Classes Are Best – All of the students work while taking classes, so no one is available at normal times of the day. That isn't a problem if you are taking online classes though :]

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Pretty Good So Far – The admissions process is a hassle, but you will get that no matter where you go. The college majors are very promising and will allow the graduates to get their feet in the door in the media industry of their choices.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Get Your Ducks in a Row – The online scholarships are a bit of a hassle, and if you are receiving any government aid at ALL, you aren't eligible for the "Momentum Scholarship" that would help make any short ends meet. I was 2 grand short on my first year, and there was no way I could make payment plans. I wound up having to change my major just so I could get my foot in the door just to apply for scholarships later.

They will give you the run around, almost constantly. But all you can do is grin and bear it. You'll get through it.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: I am not taking taking classes on campus, but I am taking them online. The advisors and the Financial Aid staff are always available whenever I need them and the student body is excellent.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online Classes – The school's online program is pretty decent and the teacher's really do go the extra mile for their students but they are still kind of developing methods to accommodate their students so it isn't quite perfect yet.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: In my animation program, the classes have been precisely what I was expecting. Each class has been challenging and interesting. The instructors have went out of their way to not only teach us the information that we need to learn, but to make that learning entertaining as well. The work is intense, not overwhelmingly so, unless you fall behind. Don't fall behind.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Be Sure – The tuition at Full Sail is a lot. Can't deny that, but I feel that my education so far has been well spent and worth it. I would definitely make sure that this is the profession that you really want to pursue before you start here though. With the fast pace of the school, each month means you are building up expenses from school. A nice thing is that there are no books or supplies to buy for your degree unless you run out of pencils or whatnot. The financial aid office is easy to deal with and very helpful.

Overall Experience: I have really enjoyed attending Full Sail. The school's quick pace means that I will graduate in half the time than if I went to a "regular" college. The courses are challenging and very fast paced, but there is almost always someone available to help if you have an issue or question. The animation program's classes have been on topic and do a good job of building on one another. I highly recommend this school to anyone who really wants to get to the nitty gritty of an animation program and doesn't want to waste time taking the filler fluff classes that regular campuses add to their programs.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am a former student who was duped into believing this school could deliver on all their hype. The marketing is fantastic but that's where it stops! I found the overpriced under delivered "education" was a joke. My credits would not transfer to the schools I was looking to attend to get a "real education". To add insult to injury, Full Sail University sent me a bill for thousands of dollars for classes I never took!! This is a business in my opinion and nothing more.

I've created a website to educate (pun intended) prospective students so they don't make the same mistake as I did. I've uncovered all the details that you need to know BEFORE YOU SIGN.

Career Services: Heard of Us? The alumni that come from Full Sail are some of the leading people in entertainment from video games, movies, music and other categories. I hope to be an successful alumni and to have younger students do what I have.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Did I Have Homework? The biggest thing when it comes to online classes it doing your homework so you can learn the material for the tests/exams. I believe that having no teacher to tell you when things are due and to make sure you do them is one of the hardest things about taking online classes. You have to make sure to remember when everything is do and to take it upon yourself to be responsible and do everything correctly. At first online classes may seem intimidating but after awhile it becomes a routine, and for me it has been a great experience.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Got Technology? Full Sail University is one of the best schools in the country when it comes to technology. Everything that we learn during our time at Full Sail has to do with creativity and using some of the best programs depending on your major. I don't believe there is a better school when it comes to letting there student be hands on with some of the best technology on the market today, its truly great.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Loving My Major – I'm a film major at FSU and so far I am in love with it. I get to work with movie crews and on the most advanced and newest equipment in the industry and in all manner of positions, from director to camera man to editor to everything in between.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Amazing Experience – My time attending Full Sail University has been nothing short of amazing. The classes keep me on my toes and interested. I went almost instantly into learning about my field and not taking "fluff" classes that I wouldn't use later. THe staff is very knowledgable and always within reach. I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking to pursue a career in film, music or art.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Continuing Education – After you graduate from school at Full Sail, you can retake (audit) classes in your respective degree program that keeps you up to date on emerging techniques and software. You can also use their amazing labs after you graduate.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Online Interaction – I'm skeptical of online classes because i don't feel they provide a conducive atmosphere for learning. We need human interaction in classrooms to learn how to interact with people in "the real world"

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Very Understanding (With Correct Paperwork) – I recently had a battle with Crohns disease in which i had to withdrawal from school for a month. With the right paperwork and a speedy recovery i was able to transition back into school with no headaches or stress.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: the diversity of races, traditions, religions and economic stature in the student body at full sail university adds and extra realm of opportunity along with learning from one another as students and years go by.Having diversity in the student body is an area where full sail is not lacking and continues to blossom with film, gaming , music and creative writing just to name a few of how all this versatility in perception and background will only impose a positive and encouraging experience for all students and professors. diversity is what makes us all one.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Registration Process and Work Load – my experience in the classroom registration process was a smooth ,the faculty and students are informative and reliable professionals both in and out of school hours. work loads vary depending on the degree and subject studied, for example film and gaming don not carry the same work load or hours.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The reason i feel at home in full sail university is the vibe i get when in the classrooms around the students and faculty.
as a student or just taking a tour of the school you see and feel the ideas and limitless opportunities given to you the student.there is a constant outreach of faculty and students coming together in school functions boosting moral along with the drive to excel while maintaining a strong relationship with professors and students.

4 College Freshman

Student Body: The student body is very divorced, makes me feel good that its that diverse and we all have one common goal, which is to succeed at our craft. A grade for me.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Professors here at full sail university are like none other, they are very personable and take time to assist in whatever academic concerns you might have. just brilliant.

3 College Junior

Career Services: Yet to Be Determined – I've yet to graduate but the school speaks highly of their career development. I have a friend that is about to graduate and her class was recently visited by career development in which the blatantly said, " You came to the wrong school if you want to be anything else other than grip and gaffe" which complete brought her down and me as well. This signifying that my time and money had been wasted.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Network and Online Education Issues – You can always be connected to the schools website with easy however when it comes to submitting work online through the schools online education website, it is always a headache. Many times I faced the dreaded error. The school email is just as bad. It's difficult to connect and the interface is user friendly.
