4 College Sophomore

Student Body: Student Full Time – It is all work this school tries to mimic the work enviroment that you are going into so for me that means long hours and sometimes night labs.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: Awesome for Online School – since i live out of state and am a military spouse, being able to have access to the type of education available at full sail is excellent for me. i'm so glad they offer online school and you can reach someone if you need to most times of day or night and even on weekends.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: The Professors are all directly pulled from real world jobs in their related subjects. So they all know what the industry will be like for us and can solve problems for us as the come up. Even if they do not know something they can connect you with someone that does. Networking is a great element as well.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great Experience – I am 5 months in and loving every second of it. After being out of school for 8 years, Full Sail eased me back in. Looking forward to finishing my program.

5 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Great for Anyone Who Is Dedicated – Overall the experience has been even better than I imagined. I signed up for online courses because I work up to 60 hours a week and don't have time to go to a physical class room. It has been such a great experience, and despite the fact that it is completely online, the teachers make great effort to stay invovled and keep the students involved with each other.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Not Enough Aid – I receive aid but it's not enough to cover all of my tuition. And its a hassle trying to find a scholarship. Full Sail needs more options for private loans. There are a lot of banks and credit card companies that offer student loans but Full Sail is never on any of the lists of schools.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Real World Education – Full Sail began as an audio recording and production school and has expanded to include many different music, design, creative arts and technical (computer, web, animation, game development) areas of study. It's roots are firmly based in doing and preparing for a career in the real world. There is no fluff, no "underwater basket weaving", no unrelated electives. If you don't know what you want from your education or career, stay away -- you won't like it here.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Education That Works Around You – The Full Sail online program offers the greatest flexibility and completeness of curriculum delivery that I have seen. All the classes in your field of study can be delivered online. There are, of course, deadlines for every assignment, but I can attend class and do my work at any time that suits my schedule.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: A Mod Way to Learn – An education is every bit worth the money, but it is up to the individual to know what and how they want to pursue their educational and career goals. Full Sail's tuition is not cheap, but it is very competitive with other private institutions and there are no hidden fees -- everything is included (software, computer, etc.). The approach to learning is modular. One takes one course at a time for eight or six-teen weeks, everyday. There are no traditional semesters or breaks. This means you can complete your degree on an average of a year sooner than is usual compared to a traditional college or university.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: The students really care, and seem very willing to work together.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Great Knowledge – The classes surrounding the degree are all very focused and powerful and provide great tools for success.

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Off Campus – I can only tell you that i have heard the campus is amazing. But i am an online student so i do not know what the campus is like.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: At full sail the experience is amazing. The professors are talented, interesting and attentive. Workload is not to heavy but it does prepare you for the real world. There are tons of programs to help you if you need it. Even online you get a great since of community.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: My school is incredibly diverse. Even being online you still know how diverse it is.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Very Flexible – Taking my classes online has made going to school so much easier! While you still have due dates and guide lines you also get to study at your own pace. The curriculum is great and the teachers are attentive.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: the equipment at the school is good. all the equipment is taken care of and in mint condition

3 College Junior

Career Services: just started so Im not sure how the career center is. the network so far is okay and the job prospect n/a

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.

4 College Sophomore

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.

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.
