Instructors Care, Administrators Do NOT – Tuition is steep, no professional, degree-specific accreditation does not exist meaning you are trapped into finishing your degree at this school at GREAT personal financial expense. They sign you up with promises of a great education and the ability to graduate taking night classes ONLY. Then, four years in they specifically say you cannot possibly graduate with only night classes. Classes are only offered several quarters apart making the ability to complete required courses next to impossible. Credits have been added to my program for graduation requirement which translates to more $$ in their pockets. So, many students have exhausted all financial aid options and are stuck paying cash for classes. This makes some to resort to taking one class per quarter, further lengthening their time in the program, this leads to much &quot;hoop jumping&quot; in order for them to graciously &quot;allow&quot; you to continue taking classes one at a time. Focus on the accreditation instead of harping on students whose financial aid you have exhausted and attempting to harrass them to overstretch themselves financially in order to meet your &quot;numbers&quot;. You're still getting your money, so keep your mouth shut!

If You Desire to Major in a Field of Art, Don't Go to AII – I have never been to such a terrible college! I enrolled into Media Arts and Animation and my class was dubbed &quot;the experimental class&quot; since the instructors had no idea what to teach us. Their curriculum was mixed up and didn't provide any guidance to students in order to find which classes should be taken before other classes. The instructors are overly critical to an insulting degree in fact, lacking any productive criticism whatsoever. The financial aid department and student coordinators are a complete waste, since you'll contact them for assistance and get completely blown off, and then they tell you tough luck once it's too late. I have missed a number of class enrollment thanks to their lack of consideration! If I had to go back, I would choose another school to enroll. Don't make the same mistake I did!
