They will lead you on a wild goose chase selecting courses or telling you what to take which is not even close to what you are focusing on in the first place. $60,ooo dollars later nothing to show for it. They will hound you to come back texting, calling sometimes several times a week ...just so they can keep their count and money coming in. Even after telling them you are not coming back they still are incessantly calling. It is my fault for sticking it out there. I only have myself to blame.

My experience at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco was amazing and changed my life. From the moment I saw the campus and visited the city of San Francisco I was hooked. There was so much diversity in the other programs they offered and my education was broad with the 4 year B.A. program. I learned so much about myself as an artist that I did not know existed prior to this edcuation. The professors were working in their field of study so, it was such a dynamic team of instructors that... Read More

I have not officially gone to Academy of Art University; however, this review is for those who are considering, just as I did before my experiences drove me away. I'm sorry if this is long, but PLEASE read this if you're considering. I, as a student looking to begin my career and formal training as a fashion designer, immediately saw Academy of Art listed as one of the "top" choices- I put in my information and was immediately contacted to begin my journey into applying. My advisor that was paired... Read More

This school is just interested in taking your money. They do not put time into their majors and curriculum. Everything is a fee before actual education. The schools safety is a joke. It's in the heart of downtown San Francisco and students are always in fear of walking no matter the time of day. Housing policies are also a joke.

They have classes others don't which are good, but some have BOGUS YOUTUBE curriculums and material that your advisor might recommend. I could feel hands in my pockets as I was told how to shake hands and greet someone, sew a straight 4 inch line on a standard machine, that BOGO is a great way to increase amount of units sold. Triple DUH!!! You'll be finished and think wow I might've learned more in a weekend or at a community college. SO be absolutely skeptical of your admission/academic advisor.... Read More

I am currently a senior at AAU. I have taken all my classes online. The classes are not easy. In fact, I think taking classes online is even harder. The camera doesn't lie and can point out flaws in your work you didn't see with your naked eye. I feel that I am getting an excellent education with people who are teachers, but also working in the industry. I have had very good teachers. If you are ready for a challenge and will step up to the plate, this is for you. I have thoroughly enjoyed my classes.... Read More
