The Art Institute of Pittsburgh - Online Division Reviews

I love the core curriculum for Graphic Design. The classes are intense and fast-paced, but you learn a lot. The School really works hard to prepare students for becoming professionals in their fields. It provides webinars where professionals working in their field tell you what it's like, and students can ask questions. AIP has very good tutoring support and technical support. Almost all the instructors provide helpful critiques and suggestions. They also readily make themselves available in multiple ways such as phone, Skype and email. The academic counselors and financial counselors keep up with how you are doing and what tasks you need to accomplish. You can discuss anything with them. While the Art Institute of Pittsburgh has a physical campus, its online division is very convenient and easy to use.
When I first was attending Art Institute, I went to their San Francisco campus. Due to financial reasons, I had to move back home, and continue my education on their Online Division. However, I asked to transfer my credits from one campus to the other, and they would not. Unless, I complete paid off the San Francisco campus, and they like to hold it over my head. I need my credits transferred, or the Online campus will start giving me classes that I have already taken. It's not right, and they don't help me as much as they promised.
I chose this school because I thought they cared about me and would help me obtain a good solid education and solid knowledge. I was wrong, they only care about whats in your wallet and getting you in the school, trapping you, and taking advantage of inexperienced young people, who have no future in a art world. You are better off buying a book and teaching yourself. I have pretty much done that the whole time and did not realize what I had done until it was to late and so far in I had to stay to get the degree to make it worth it. They lie, steal, and cheat you into a horrible scam. Never choose this school, teach yourself, find another school, or go to a campus based college that is not a fine arts school. No credits transfer, everything done at this school means nothing, great you have a degree but art companies look at it as a joke. They all know this is a bad school and teaches you nothing. You see this is the work turned over after 4 years of being at the school, the drop out rate, the job placement rate, and the unsatisfied number of people attending or graduating, mostly young impressionable people.
