Academic Flexibility: I found out through the grapevine that this for profit school locks you in by not offering transferrable credits.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'M GREATLY DISSAPOINTED WITH MYSELF FOR EVER ENROLLING IN AIPOD FOR MANY REASONS!

-Teachers and other students offer minimal inspiration.

-I’ve had teachers with no sympathy, that would rather fail a student who puts lots of hours and effort into their projects and hands them in late, than allow the work to speak for it’s self.

-All students need to do to get a degree at AIPOD is pay the tuition and submit assignments that meet the minimum requirements.

-I'd be cheating myself out of time, money, and education if I continued at AIPOD.

-I'm better off educating myself as I was before I enrolled, for free, online.

-The school has a Bad Reputation for enrolling ANYONE who qualifies for grants and loans, whether or not they’re academically eligible or artistically inclined.

-High tuition rate does not reflect the poor education and resources offered.

-Horrible graduation rate and dropout rate

-I feel as though I’ve foolishly put myself in debt for a degree that isn’t worth more than my portfolio.

-Having a degree from AIPOD is a joke to many companies.

-Credits are nontransferrable

-I was drawn to AIPOD by a commercial, I called for information, Spoke to a recruiter who "took care of me" told me everything I was eligible for. She built me up and made me feel as though I was doing a "good thing" by pursuing my degree. I was just naive and vulnerable. The wool was pulled way over my eyes. Had I done research on the school, I would've never made this HUGE Financial mistake.

1 College Junior

Overall Experience: Courses are regurgitated and lame. I've had to retake classes due to attendance, and each time, I had to retake the same exact assignments, different teachers.

1 College Junior

Student Body: This school accepts anyone, no matter their artistic or academic ability, so long as they're eligible for a grant and loan. It makes for a poor peer environment that lacks in inspiration and is very discouraging!

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Lab fees, Book fees... I've never stepped foot in a lab, and I've never received a book. Definitely not worth the thousands of dollars charged.

1 College Junior

Career Services: A degree from this school will land you a prime spot at the butt of a joke

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of the classes and curriculum is unparalleled in the fact I can do my classes from home and do not have to drive or take away from my every day needs as well as the mobile app they have allows me to keep up even when I am not at home.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the fact that the admissions counselor, financial counselor, and academic counselor call me once about every two weeks to check up on me and see if I have had any issues or problems that they might be able to help me with or refer me to someone that can help me with any problem I may have. I would hands down choose this school again for a variety of reasons but the top three are as follows: They care about you and your educational experience and are always there to make it easier for you, The teachers can understand you and help you with any number of things, and because I have the time to do the things I have to during my every day life and not risk getting withdrawn for missing days. I do plan on pursuing a degree with game design after I complete this course with the Art Institute of Pittsburgh- Online division again

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I like the classes and the class size because it is not too overwhelming. I enjoy seeing other students work and being able to critique them. Classrooms are easy to navigate and easy to follow.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I do not know a whole lot about this as I have goals to start my own business once I graduate but I do believe that the campuses have a great employer base to help you when you graduate.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: As I have always been more at ease with classrooms because you have the teacher their to show you what you are doing wrong with the online aspect of a classroom it is a lot easier than you would believe. Submitting homework and class assignments is easy and the instructions on how to do it is very easy to follow. Teachers keep in touch with students and give excellent feedback and advice to help with assignments. The one thing I like the most is that you do not have to actually be in a classroom for 8 hours a day which in turn allows you to be able to handle everyday things such as a job or errands or even more time with family. The bonus to that is that if you have to work you are able to do so and will not get withdrawn for missing classes.

Student Body: As far as my classrooms I have seen all types of people. Some are gaining new skills to further their career and are still young, some have been older in their 60's just passing time while gaining skills they may be able to use. As I attend a online class I do not have much interaction with all the students but I do have a few that have exchanged emails with me or I even have them in my contact list on my phone and talk to a few times a week about projects or course material. Overall it is an amazing feeling that I can maintain friendships with other students even without ever having met them.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything that I have learned is well worth the money that I have pulled loans out for. They have a section for financial aid though with my FAFSA and my loans I am covered until I graduate at which time I will start paying it back. I am trying to find scholarships that will offset the cost of what I have to pay back though and I am really hoping to find enough to where I can cover my whole course cost.

5 College Junior

Career Services: As I have not graduated yet I can not answer this fully but from what I have seen and read they have a great referral system. I will be applying for the Kappa Pi International Honorary Art Society and the National Technical School Society as well in the fall and they have an awesome network. I feel as though with the school and these two societies that I will have a much better shot at a full career when I graduate with all the contacts that I will accrue through being associated with them.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: Being that I am in Web Design and Interactive Media and as such the course work is relatively easy as they have tutorial videos and teacher comments as well as student critiques so that you can maximize your ability to create beautiful pieces of work and ultimately feel better about your skill. Learning everything that I have learnt including but not limited to Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Bridge, Flash, and also Dreamweaver has been easy and more than informative and has cleared a lot of the mystery of the things I have always wanted to understand.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The professors and the instructors could not be more helpful or informative! I love the fact that even though you lack the one on one aspect of a normal classroom they are still there to help you and if they are not you can go to the tutoring section which is always there to help you. Curriculum is easy to navigate as they will let you know a week ahead what your new classes are and what to expect. They have a grid sheet that you can look at anytime that will tell you what is going to be expected and what you will be learning. Class registration is also easy as like I said before they tell you a week ahead of time of your new classes and you just verify that you have recognized them and understood the class curriculum. The academic counselors will also call you so that they know that you have seen them. Tutoring is also available whenever you should need it and comes in handy as they will work with you one on one and wont stop till you understand what you came to them to figure out in the first place.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I like the fact that even though this is an online course that teachers and faculty are available either through email through the school or they will reply to your own personal email. The tutoring is very nice in the fact that they are very good and available any time of the day. The classes are very easy to navigate and the lessons are more than informative and should you have any classes you have questions about you are certain to gain an answer to it. They have an online school library for any of your needs be it images for your graphic designs or literature to read for research.

Overall Experience: This was great because I found anything and everything that i needed.

Online Courses: I think its better than traditional schools because here you learn one on one instead of being taught with other kids and also their is 24/7 tutoring which you dont get at regular school.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: I think it is the best because their are a lot of different people that go to this school and you can talk to anyone you want.

4 College Freshman
