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.

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.
