I have only been with IADT (which is now Sanford-Brown) in Seattle since March. The faculty is very friendly and sociable. They really do try to work with you. Communication is definitely a must if you wish to succeeded in this school though. Currently each class is condensed into 5 week courses; which has both good and bad sides. If your classes are small- its great! the classes are 5 hours long which allows you to finish your projects during class and not lose your "groove". At the same time, some classes are really jam-packed with information. So talk to your instructor with all questions you might have and keep detailed notes too. The classes are blocked into 2 time slots 8am to 12:55pm and 1pm to 6pm Monday-Thursday. Each quarter is split into 2 modules; so in order to be a full time student you must have at least one module with two 5-week classes and the other with one (each class is 4 credits, 3 classes is full term, so the classes have to fit into the 2 modules that make up 1 full term). This is doable, but can be a bit of a challenge if you happen to also be working.

I Love It! I love learning more things about creating, visualizing and designing Fashion Apparel. The work load I can handle since I love what I'm learning. The curriculum definitely focuses on what is your degree (mine is a Bachelors in Fashion Design) and they give courses for the general education requirements but it is not their main focus- it is an art school.

The school is very straight-forward, all of your tuition includes supplies for the classes. They also don't really skip out on the supplies (prisma-color pens for fashion sketching, etc.). However, to keep from hiking up tuition costs, they cut supplies fro some classes they don't believe needed them (like any colored pencils, paint or colored markers for some classes). So instead we had to by our own supplies. I'm also in the Fashion design program and you have to supply yourself with your own cloth and muslin. In some of the classes they will supply muslin but not for others (confusing and a bit frustrating). In all though they are really updated on your finances (everything they have you can also access online) and will lead you through the process of getting all of your loans and financial aid figured out.
