Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design Reviews

I enjoy this school a lot so far. The faculty genuinely care about my learning and they don't want to see anyone left behind not knowing anything. Even in the online program the teachers are in touch with students and give specific feedback for how to improve. I just took a super-tough class about perspective drawing, and got all A's because the teacher explained the topics super well and answered all my questions.

Also, the online format is surprisingly good for interacting with classmates. There are weekly discussions, which if you participate to your full capacity, will give you a strong sense of camaraderie with your classmates.

As with any school, you reap from RMCAD what you sow in RMCAD. I've been giving all my passion and energy and drive to each assignment and improved my art skills so much already. If you're serious about a career in arts, but you need a flexible schedule and affordable tuition, RMCAD's online program is what you need!

RMCAD is the best place for unleashing your creativity. Close to home, great people and teachers! Everyone is so nice and caring, everyone respects you!
I enjoyed RMCAD, i learned so much there by visual learning, teachers always have compassion for you, the staff is very clear and helpful when it comes to hard questions, the advisers always are a step forward, SLC which is Student Learning Center at RMCAD are people who genuinely care, and help you through the toughest times!
Rocky Mountain college of art & design has been life changing, and a real eye opener. The staff are all supportive and ready to assist you with anything you need in order to become a better student/professional. Being here surrounded by a bunch of hard working/motivated people has inspired myself to push beyond my own limitations and bring back creativity to the world. I am a transfer student who struggled to find the right college and even debated if college was right for me. After touring and talking to locals it was clear to me that there is no other college out there that provides such a fun and loving environment like the rocky mountain college of art and design. To be apart of their legacy and the things that they do is truly a blessing and i am thankful to have this opportunity to attend.
