The Academics at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh: Online Division are some of the best I've seen and I'm a current transfer student. The professors really have some one-on-one time with you since the classrooms are fairly small (usually no larger than 15 students). They are very knowledgeable and most of them boast some excellent resumes and experience! The curriculum is well laid out and flows well throughout the amount of weeks spent in each class. Registration is very simple, you just have to talk with your Academic Advisor over the phone and they will handle the rest for you. You can discuss what types of classes interest you and how to go about registering for them. If space is available, you can claim a seat and if not, there are tons of other classes that can take its place.

Content With Choice! Tho the courses are challenging at times, they tend to be fairly easy if you pay attention, participate, and get involved. I was so scared before now, to attend college. Felt I became stupid or I just couldn't do it. The first course, for first time online students, is strategies for online learning. I learned a lot from this course including: online study tips, note-taking methods, daily creative activities and various other strategies. Having a 97% average for the first course, helps boost my ego and makes me think that &quot;I CAN DO THIS&quot;. I chose to try to apply to a community college, but then quit right after I filled out the forms on my own. They did not call me from the school, to find out why I wasn't following through (this was for HACC Harrisburg Area Community College. The admissions counselor admitted me, waving both the application fee and the enrollment fee. I had no out of pocket expense, and with financial aid, all my classes will be covered part-time with money left over towards equipment. I feel the only reason I followed through with this education, this time, was thankfully in part of their admissions counselor Cheryl Braun-Thomas, and her quick courtesy response call aiding me in the process. Kudos to AiP Online Division for their EXCELLENT student (customer) service! This is why if I had to choose to go back to AiPOD in the future, I WILL!

If you're the type of person who has a busy schedule, then this is the answer for you! I manage a small studio with two other designers and also have an international business that I'm partnered into. These two businesses take up a large majority of my day so choosing when to attend class is a lifesaver. I can log on early in the morning or come in late at night. Assignments must be completed by a set time each day but it's late enough that everyone can get everything done! Living in a busy city, I had to commute to school then back to work, then back to school and finally home. Online courses saved me time, money (from all that gas!) and actually was a better route for understanding the material (I can't sit down for 4 hours, write notes all day, and expect to remember what I did when I get back home).
