RMCAD is constantly going above and beyond my expectations, though it's not to say it's perfect. If there is anything a student is worried about, the staff works quickly to go about solving those issues.
I attend online and my experience with everyone has been fantastic. The teachers are considerate and helpful and the department staff of all departments I've dealt with were kind and willing to help with all issues I had. Truly a great school to earn a degree in a creative field.
This school is awesome. I transferred here after my freshmen year of college and they took all my credits and made the transfer process very easy. They are also very good at helping you if you have any issues and have a lot of events that go on through the year.

I really love the community of the college, everyone is working toward being artists and since the campus is so small, everyone is very close-knit. The professors are wonderful and class sizes are small, which makes for a great learning environment. I and a few other students have had trouble with the financial aid department, however. For the most part, whatever problems they cause get solved, but not without a runaround of talking to several different people.
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.
This is not an art school, it is a diploma mill designed to take your money. I feel sad writing a review because there are a few teachers left who care, but even they apologize for how RMCAD is. This place is truly horrible and has zero credibility. How do I know? I graduate in August and would give it all back for a chance to go to a real school. I'm honestly ashamed of myself for 'graduating' from here. Nobody takes this place seriously and neither should you.
I have just started with this school, and I have to say that I think I am really going to like it here. The Teachers and Students are all great. The creativity within the school is so incredible it is almost hard to grasp. I would recommend this schol to anyone looking to get an art & design degree.
The campus is quiet and clean. Staff members are friendly, smiling and always ready with a helping hand. The halls are decorated with exhibitions of recent student work always on rotation. The student to teacher ration is 9 to 1, which is helpful for me, as I have a learning disability. The campus its self has multiple buildings, all of which are very beautiful. This school was a hospital for tuberculosis patients at one time and has very interesting architecture and rich history.
I love my school. The professors are great and very responsive. I have learned so much already. I am an online student and I find it is a great way for me to learn.
RMCAD is a great school with a variety of art and design programs that you don’t know what to choose. I’m actually an online student so I don’t know what campus and student life is like, but I wish we had a choice of what course you want to take. Other than that, this school is amazing!
the school is great I got my degree fully online and the professors are always there to help if needed. for being online and not able to go to the classes in person the material s still great and you still learn just as much as you would on camps.
This school is a joke. The average student is a bad artist and the average instructor doesn’t care. Administration will pack as many students as they can into a class and do not care about the individual student or their schedule.
I am starting there as a transfer student this summer and am very excited!! So far the application process has been pretty straight-forward and the different people working in admissions have been great so far in helping me get prepared to study my design online program.
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!
As an online student, my experience at RMCAD has been a good one. The courses are flexible, education is invaluable and teachers are wonderful. I'd enrol all over again.
So far it has been an excellent experience with a community that supports its students and faculty. As an institution, it has been sympathetic to students' needs in light of all the natural disasters this semester. As an online student, I can't speak for the campus experience, but my experience has been great so far.
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!

I am a current online student at RMCAD and I have to say I am blown away at the professionalism of the school and the professors in regards to online. Most other schools only see online as a simple tack on so they neglect it, but not here the teachers are helpful and understanding. The online student portal is easy to use and straightforward you know what's due and when. I cant say enough good things about this school.
Beautiful Campus and friendly staff and students. Surrounding area is nice and there is a lot to do on breaks. Easy to find and Is easy to find classes. Rich history in the campus and there is a lot of good resources.
I love that the school is small and classes intimate and hands on. The faculty could definitely get a grasp on what they're doing and communicate better/be more organized.
