Administration is terrible! After graduation, my invoice increased significantly. After many calls and emails over the course of 9 months, I finally received​ a response as to why. I was told the initial amount of Pell Grant I was given was incorrect, because I only went 3/4 time my last few semesters and not full time. My schedule was changed by administration on the first day of classes. The hours and days where completely different than what I had originally signed up for. Each course only offered one time and day once a year. The lack of class structure, organization, and communication, along with lack of enough faculty to teach the required courses, ultimately cost in the quality of the education I received, but also financially. I would only recommend​ this school to people who are prepared to pay around $90,000 for a bachelors degree at SUVA, and still need to pay for additional education thereafter.
Review Southwest University of Visual Arts - Albuquerque
The teachers are looking for specific stuff in assignments, they tell us that, but not what they're looking for exactly.
The tuition is pricey, however I feel after comparing my general knowledge to those in the same program attending other universities are quite higher and more applicable. Starting from a Freshmen I was able to jump into my studio courses right away therefore having more experience then others from the very beginning.
