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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Tuition & Financial Aid: MY THOUGHTS ABOUT MY SCHOOL TUITION IS OK BUT AT THE SAME TIME IS JUST A LITTLE EXPENSIVE. WAY TO MUCH. MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE FINACIAL AIDIS OK EVEN THOUGH I WISH THAT SHE HAD JUST TOLD ME ALL TOGETHER THAT I HAD TO GET DIFFERENT LOAN BECAUSE MY FASFA DIDNT COVER ALL OF MY TUITION.

Academic Experience: Instructors Are Informative – The curriculum is easy to understand because the instructors give information and examples to help the students understand their assignments. I haven't had one class so far that I didn't understand or not learn anything from.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Online Experiences – The online courses at this school can be a lot more difficult than campus because you have to learn to troubleshoot things yourself if you can't get a hold of the teacher right away. This can actually benefit you better though, since some companies will prefer you be able to solve your own problems. There isn't as much student-to-student interaction as I would like to see, although it is really based on the student how much interaction they will receive from the teacher and other students. The teachers love to interact with the students and encourage e-mails or instant messages.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Computer Animation Bachelor's Online Program – I absolutely love this program, the classes, and the teachers. It can be frustrating sometimes because the projects can be very demanding, but it's worth the struggle. The projects are fun, the teachers are great and very helpful. I couldn't have picked a more perfect program and school.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition for this school is very high considering it is a private college. It can be very difficult to pay for, but the representatives in the financial aid office are very nice and helpful and try their best to get you whatever help you need. I highly recommend applying for any scholarships you come across to help pay for this school. Despite the high cost of attending this school, the experience and classes are worth it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I'm an Online Student – I'm currently enrolled online. And so far I like the experience. It's really intense and you don't want to fall behind. But I do feel like I am learning and absorbing the information very well, which is very important to me. I'm still excited about my degree choice and will stick with it until the end.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: The online classes are really interactive and require as much time and thought as a real class which helps you stay on track and at the ready for an excellent experience

Overall Experience: Real World Experience – This school really focuses on passion. If you have the drive to be in any of the industries the schools many degree programs, they give you the "know how" and the tools to chase your dreams.

Academic Flexibility: I give Full Sail kudos, for they came through when I needed them to. Even though I am a new student (almost finished with my freshman year), I had some family medical issues come up with my seventeen year old son. The stress and work load was too much for me to handle at that time, so my Student Advisor's helped me withdraw from classes and take a few months off to help my child. It could of been a life saving issue with my son and it still could be, but things are much better. Sadly, I've broken my foot while taking my time off and that isn't very fun.

Online Courses: Workload and Professors – The classes are setup so that you have one a month, in some cases two, but rare. The classes are easy going and typically give you a week to complete projects/work. There are several ways to submit work, in-case the "FSO" page is down. However getting a professor to contact you back can sometimes be very difficult. Many professors are understanding and helpful, where a few have ruined it for many students.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Curriculum and Professors – The curriculum is set up so that if you decide to transfer out there are very few colleges will give you credits for any of the classes you have taken. The curriculum is set up for maximum learning, however getting good feedback, if any from the professors is a miracle. The professors seem to copy others course data, which leads to confusion from errors (i.e., incorrect dates, missing data, etc.) or the professors use their own course data from the last semester, also leading to the same confusions. The platform is set up so students and teachers may chat via iChat and other means, but few professors get back to you. If the university would spend some time and money on the online student facets it would be a better place.

Academic Flexibility: I am a full-time stay at home mom. Online classes allow me to attend school while still fulfilling my obligations. The classes are a month long.

Academic Experience: MDVBS- Mobile Media Devlopment – It needs work.
I am in a very new degree program. I will be one of the first to graduate. The program is disorganized and the transitions from class to class are not seamless. The work load is heavy and the accelerated rate is sometimes overwhelming. There is a lot of extra personal time dedicated to researching to complete assignments. The price is very expensive. Only apply if you are motivated and can handle heavy course loads. Most classes require about an average of 20-40 hours of work per week. There are a few general ed courses that are a complete waste of time but needed I assume to meet accreditation requirements. If you have the chance take the gen ed classes at a community college first. You will save around $10,000.

Campus Resources: The Campus is very up-to-date with everything from the classrooms to the bathrooms. They have a events and live entertainment on their state-of-the-art "Live Venue". The have cafeterias that proudly brew "Starbucks" coffee. And their electronics and appliances are all updated.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The education is very satisfactory. I got some financial aid which helped a lot at the beginning,and I'm hoping it'll keep pulling through for me, even though it is very expensive, but worth it in the end. The only problem I've been having are the schedules, especially on the months before holiday breaks and such.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: From all the research and up to my knowledge Full Sail is the right choice for me. They help students get amazing jobs.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: No Comments – The reason why i chose this school was because they offered my major and they have a high rate of successful graduates. Everything is flexible, the faculty are very understanding when it comes to time prioritizing. Not looking to transfer
