The Art Institute of Charlotte Reviews

If I could do it all over I would still go to the Art Institute. My instructors are strict and precise which is why I enjoy the classes, while the actual course loads can range between ridiculously hard to small amounts. Generally, most instructors help you with any issues besides the ones that change deadlines and make no exception for the classes. The financial issues with this school give a lot to be desired. For me, I had changed my plan to a lower payment each month. Instead of refunding my money they put it towards future payments. The payments didn't go through even though I consistently tried each month to get it to stick, I had 4 months that was supposed to be paid. However, the office kept trying to take my money and charged me for late fees. I gave up and paid the difference, having 2 months left over from my initial payment. When this situation arrises ask for a full refund instead of paying new months.

There are a lot of design oriented classes that I have to take, as well as some basics like Math and Writing. The Registration Process is pretty easy sometimes, I like going to see the Head person of my Major to do my schedule so that I take classes that I have to, but sometimes it is difficult to get in contact with them, for example the last time that I was having to make my schedule I emailed my admissions person and they never got back to me, so I had to continuously return to their office to see if they were there, until finally I bumped into them and we set a time for later that day.
The only good thing about the resources that we have are the computers and tablets, even then computers tend to not work or the mouse doesn't work. We receive a general admission kit, but we receive items that we don't even use and they don't give us items that we do tend to need, causing us to buy the items from their student store at a high price. Rather than just supplying a kit to a specific major and how far they are going in that major since not everybody is going to be there for the same amount of time.
