Academic Flexibility: I only had 2 classes where credits could be transferred and I heard/read recently that Full Sail doesn't offer much at all in the form of transferring credits to other schools. So if I were to attend a new school after graduating from Full Sail, I don't think any of my credits would be transferable. I think it has something to do with it being a for-profit school and an accelerated program - not entirely sure. Their online curriculum could really use some major revamping. Some classes literally just entail you watching YouTube videos and doing things completely on your own. Some of the instructors literally don't create or come up with their own projects or assignments. There were also MANY classes where you would be required to watch hours and hours (like, 5+) of videos in order to figure out how to do the assignments, but those hours and hours of videos would be weighted at 0% of the grade. Their grading scales are really horrible, too. I'd say majority of the classes I've had so far would have a few assignments worth a large portion of the grade and then they'd have random, small assignments worth 1-2%. They should really work on weighting things better. Instead of making one assignment 40% of the grade, they should break it up or add smaller assignments to help with the grade. Otherwise, if you do poorly on one assignment, you could easily fail the entire class because of just one assignment.

Academic Flexibility: I did not even attempt to transfer my credits from my old school. I only think one of them would have transferred if I had tried. I had a different major, and Full Sail is very major focussed.

Academic Flexibility: If you transfer credits they make you wait six months to start your schooling. If you feel you need the classes because you have been out of school a while, they let you start; then when there are six months left, they claim there is no more financial aid and you will be kicked out if you do not pay up.

Academic Flexibility: I have been impressed throughout my Bachelor degree

Academic Flexibility: My class times and days change every single month. You can not find out ahead of time what days your classes might be on. That makes it really frustrating.
