The Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham Reviews

Since I have been at AI I have fallen in love with it. The people here are great, teachers are very sweet and helpful. There are also lots of places to go and eat but they are pricey. The only downfall is their financial aid, I still haven't got the money I was promised. I still have to commute to hours to school because my housing was messed up. On the other hand, the academic portion of The Art Institute is great.

I can only speak from a military veteran stand point. I am attending this school using veterans assistance and they have literally stolen money from me. I tried to enroll in early April and due to them not being able to get my High School transcripts I received an email from the school informing me that I had not been accepted and would have reapply, I complied and began classes May 12th. Now I am getting mail from the VA saying that I am in debt with them 8 grand because the school reported that I had enrolled and never showed up for classes and did not terminate my classes. I have no idea how I was supposed to terminate classes if I was supposedly not enrolled so my VA paper work should have never even been processed for that particular semester. I spoke with finaid and was told that the VA had been refunded and that I should not owe any money only to find out months later that the VA never received a refund from AIRD and I am in debt. The teachers are awesome and so are the class but I am completely over them and looking to transfer due to their Student Advisory Staff and Finaid staff. Not to mention both my student and finaid advisors are no longer working for the school. So they came in messed some stuff up and left and now they'll either fix the problem or I'll have to file a lawsuit.
