Review The Art Institute of Pittsburgh
I've been going to this schools online division for a while now, love it so far! Most of the teachers have done professional work in the class they are teaching and show that they enjoy their subject thoroughly.
There have been some classes that I would have preferred to take in person because of the particular projects that were required but on average it hasn't been bad at all. I'm a hands on learner in most cases so that is another area for me where certain classes don't fully get across to me because I can't touch and feel what they are talking about. The registration process is easy. The student doesn't really do anything. There are schedulers that set you up with your courses and you essentially hit the accept button when the time comes and you're good to go. If there is something that you would like to take sooner rather than later, than you always have the ability to send a message to your academic counselor to get it on the books. Prof/student relationships are encouraged and outside of classroom contact is sometimes necessary. Peer to peer is minimal aside from the peer reviews that are annoyingly required on every assignment.
I was able to transfer all of my core classes as well as several electives and a few random classes from my previous school. After the initial transfer I started taking classes and came to a session where I was signed up to take speech. I had already taken this previously and didn't even realize that it had not been transferred. I talked to my academic counselor and that process was super simple. I filled out a challenge form that consisted of my basic information, the class I was challenging and a description of the class I had previously taken. It was accepted within a day or two and they adjusted my schedule to reflect it. Class order is mostly flexible. If you would rather take one course over another, you have the option. The only caveat is watching out for classes that have prerequisites and not taking a 300 level course when you're in the 100 level year.
