What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are no complaints when it comes to the Academy of Art University. However, keep in mind that I am writing this review as an online student, my experiences versus and onsite student may be different. Online however, it is an excellent school. The program is easy to use, and even if you have troubles it is easy to find help with whatever problem your facing. The students and professors are accepting and 100% willing to help out. I haven't had a negative experience personally. Any troubles I have had have been with me personally trying to figure out the technology side (I am not as tech savvy as I would like to be). Even though I may have had some minor difficulties, I was always able to figure it out at the end, there is always a solution. If there was one complaint, it is that the school is not financially accessible to everyone. I am online rather than onsite because of financial reason, however know that there are answers and it is possible to attend this college if your heart is set on it!

I like how focus the school is towards pursuing your career, they always push you outside your comfort zone and handle each class as if it were professional.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the School! it is beautiful in my opinion even if all the buildings are separated and I love how different this university is compared to others. The overall feeling of the teachers and students makes me feel really good about my surrounds and the school in general. The teachers are very nice, supportive, and just teach very well. I hope to stick around as long as I can knowing how expensive it is. This is an amazing art school and for any one who wants to major in any art performance should join Academy of the Arts University! With hard work and dedication your goals can be achieved, it's not easy, but all the help is there you just need to ask.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The Academy of Art Univerisity is a school that tends to many art students seeking to find quality education at an affordable price. The University offers online degrees as well as on campus degrees and provides students with teachers who are in their desired industry! If you are a Visual Effects student well, your teacher will be a person who is an expert in the field, and this is where your quality education comes to play. The atmosphere of the University is truly unique. From the fantastic clubs and organizations to the housing accommodations, there is something for everyone at this college! You will always feel safe, the classrooms are a great size, and the staff is always ready to help you along the way. If you want a quality education, this is the college to attend!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful. I love the atmosphere of the campus, the students and staff. I chose to go with the online education and am majoring in Photography working towards obtaining my MA in Photography and being the 1st generation in my family to go this far. I represent foster youth that are looked as another statistic. I am one to beat the odds and hope that I continue to do so to set an example to each of them that there is hope and if I can get this far, they can too....even without living parents or a large support group. Anything is possible. The faculty here has been nothing less than supportive and continue too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The staff, students, and curriculum are amazing. But, the administration is horrible. Tuition is expensive, but it's worth it for how much you learn. Depending on how serious you are about pursuing a career in the arts, this school can prepare you to be the best. You either come out from this school a successful artist or an art school dropout. They give you all the tools you need, you just have to be willing to use them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a pretty mediocre school. I believe it's better then community colleges or universities especially for my major, but I feel it is overpriced for the type of education you get. I would say that the teacher is the factor that changes the experience. If I could afford another school I would probably go there. Or it might be more worth while if I attended campus and lived in the dorms ($$$)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Academy of Art University is average. For those wanting to go there, my advice through experience is make sure you apply for financial aid and cal-grant. Also, find a job if possible before going there because, my mother had to apply for parent plus loan because financial did not cover everything; school housing, tuition, fees, class material, housing food. Also, using left over money from financial aid for other stuff/emergency. I was ineligible for work study grant because parent plus loan covered it. If you want to go there on campus I advise finding cheap housing with rooming a peer or school mate going there, (be safe with unknown people) or if you know someone who lives in San Francisco. Some school housing REQUIRES food meal plan. I HATE this because I spend $2400 for 2 semesters or $4800 for 1 year (A semester equals about 4-5 months). I could have saved a lot of money if not for a requirement. There is no refunds or partial refunds if you barely eat the required housing meal plans that some housing requires students to have. Another advice is to stay at home and take online course and work somewhere close to save a lot of time and money for a year to get your plan together and see when go onsite campus if on campus or home would be a preferred choice. For me I took online classes at home for summer semester, then went to school for fall and spring semesters onsite campus. I decided to go back home and take online courses to save time and money.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The instructors are inspiring, they work in the field, and you learn a lot in a short time. It's a very competitive school, but you learn from it which is good. Overall I think it's a good university. The class size and talent varies, but you can take classes whether you are a newbie or have some previous experience.
