Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design is by far the best and most welcoming campus I’ve ever visited. I immediately felt comfortable there and everyone was very friendly. The grounds are beautiful and the extras that are available are amazing. I love this school and I can’t wait to be a part of the family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love this school. Everyone is so nice and the professors are very helpful. The afterschool activities and school events are really fun. The activities are art based, which is something that I'm really interested in. That's why I applied for this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have been an online student at RMCAD for almost a year now. I am a returning adult student, seeking my second degree. This is my first experience with online classes and I have been very pleasantly surprised at the individualized, timely feedback I receive from my professors. Class sizes are very small and the professors typically give very thorough and frequent feedback on assignments and are always more than willing to elaborate further if you ask. Professors have very high standards and tend to be tough graders but, overall, this has been a positive thing; their high expectations have pushed me to dig deeper, work harder, and produce my best work.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an online student so I put my opinions in the middle for some of the above questions. So far my professor has been extremely helpful with any and all questions regarding the online platform as well class information. This is my first 100% online degree program. Living several states away, communication was a number one detail on my list. The staff has been nothing but friendly and willing to help above and beyond more than I have seen at my other schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so excited to start Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design in January! I have already taken an Experimental Life Drawing class on campus that is after hours and it was great! Everyone on campus has been extremely friendly and all of the advisors I've spoken to seem eager to get me off to a great start with my academic career. I could not be more grateful to everyone that I have met with for making this an easy and enjoyable experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

RMCAD is a really, really good school. I went to another school before transferring to this school and I got to say that this school is way better. The professors know what they are talking about and are very easy to reach if you ever have any questions. The class sizes are small and the school itself is small, so you have the ability to create some great relationships with people studying your major or people in other majors you might not have met otherwise. The school also has a lot of events that go on throughout the year and they even offer free movies to students. Overall, this school is really awesome and I am happy that I transferred here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Take a moment to look at the 5 star reviews.. go ahead.. notice anything? Most of them seem rather scripted, like they're trying to sell you something or they are from people who have yet to attend. Obviously some reviews on here are left by marketing staff, a deplorable lie to trick you into thinking this school is something its not. Let me tell you something, RMCAD is a horrible art school. I compel you to go anywhere else, do not give in to this for profit diploma mill. Because that is all that it is. Here are the true pros and cons of this school. Pros, some teachers are really good and care about your progress. Cons, most teachers are not that great and aren't that concerned with getting you to produce your best work. There is a broken portfolio review system. The campus has cut vital resources like the library and woodshop, weekend hours, removed the cafeteria and are charging students more tuition. The acceptance rate is 100% meaning that they take anybody, it ruins the credibility of this school and all they want are students to give them money. For profit. They take anyone because they want money, not because they want to produce artists. Staff and administration are so disorganized that it will constantly affect you in the most negative ways. Oh, online classes? They are a joke. Online teachers are disconnected and apathetic and the classes are so easy that it's depressing, seriously middle school caliber stuff so that all students pass easy. Because if it was challenging some students might drop out and that would be less money for the owners of RMCAD. This school is predatory, stay away. Don't believe me? Go to campus and ask ANY junior or senior what they actually think about the school and they'll tell you what I just did.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As an online student, the flexibility that Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design provides me is excellent. There would be no way I could pursue my goal of being a successful freelance designer without the education I am currently receiving. While online "DIY" programs are beneficial, having someone with an MFA who has been in business and knows what clients are looking for reviewing your work, makes all the difference in the world. The critiques are thorough and very professional by both the professors and students.

I wish someone told me how badly this schools suck and I wish i didn’t waste my money here. This is a for profit diploma mill, not an art school. Don’t go here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are reading this now and are considering this school; take what I'm about to tell you to heart. It sucks. Don't go here. There is an incredible laundry list of reasons, here is a quick rundown: security locks campus down after evening class making accessing anything a hassle and security whines about opening doors, the library and wood shop close early meaning if you have work to do campus isn't the place to do it, there are no groups that people participate in, there is no cafeteria, the 'tech bar' can't help you and worst of all the art programs are a joke. Nobody takes this school seriously and you shouldn't waste your money here. Only spoiled kids who have no work ethic and are bad at art go here. Very small, crap filled pond.
