4 College Sophomore

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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"

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.

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.

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.

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.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Overpriced: Rushed and Stuffed – The school is reduclously over priced. The courses are a month long and everything is rushed, the instructors attempt to fill the students mind with as much they can which leads to in effective learning. As a student sometime on month is to short to understand a concept that is taught once and never talked about again. Since everything is so quick, variable information is often left out. Our classes and schedule are selected for us with our in put.

3 College Senior

Career Services: Will Get There – Haven't reached this point yet. Waiting to see what develops once I finish courses.

3 College Senior

Online Courses: No Too Bad – Literature should be done in a classroom setting from my experience, however, working online lets me take the time I need to develop well rounded response and questions for discussion.
The chat forum is antiquated, since you never know if someone posts a response to yours unless you dig through weeks worth of material.

Overall Experience: I Love to Write – I love the school and I really enjoy the coursework. The academic resources are spot-on with what I feel I need to know. That being said, I will find out at the end of my education what role the school plays in my career development.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Time management is of essence when taking online classes. Even though I can do assignments on my own time, there are deadlines that need to be met. The workload seems to be much heavier than going to a class. The grading system is highly based on communication and video projects over papers. There is more of an active role students need to have over sitting in a classroom setting.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: School Fee and Processing – The school has an Institutional Fee of $2900.00 which does not make a lot of sense. I can understand the $75 enrollment fee. They are costly for online classes but the education received seems to equal the value. They have a high turnover for student advisors and financial advisors so I continually get bounced around and it makes it difficult to communicate when issues arise.

Overall Experience: MY EXPERIENCE – I HAVENT STARTED YET BUT I THINK I WOULD LIKE THIS SCHOOL.
