Degree: Computer Animation

I started Full Sail in January, i was very excited to pursue the Computer Animation program until I actually started the course. It is a very difficult course which should not be learned or expected to be perfected in 4 weeks. My 3DF teacher also discouraged me heavily by mentioning to the class “if you guys think you will be in the company you want to work with when you graduate you are wrong a lot of students do not get to reach their goal” (which we did a class assignment discussion and everyone...

TL;DR is this: Full Sail Instructors are so out of touch with their students. The assignments have so many typos, bad links, and obviously have no interest in properly teaching their students. If the assignment isn't done the way they want it done (professional level) even though we only JUST learning - then it's a 0 or a MASSIVE deduction in points. Don't waste your money - please just look up YouTube videos to teach yourself (it's no different from the many classes I've had so far where they simply... Read More

Admissions is honestly a joke, here's why. My twin and I attend this school and they kept getting me confused with him and messed up my documents. Due to this, I was forced to push back my start date to a later one. Now on to the staff, the staff do not care about you are education what so ever. You would be lucky to even get a response to a question from your instructor and when your day it would take 24 hours even when your instructor is online. They force you to use various social media to stay... Read More

For those interested, I have detailed a full account of my time at Full Sail University in my blog. To all the many naysayers of this school I do want to address a few things: You get what you put into your education anywhere you go. Half of being in these industries that Full Sail attempt to prepare you for are based in deadlines and being able to meet them. If this is discouraging, this might not be for you. Ask questions! Many professors or students love to be asked for help! If a teacher is not... Read More

Where do I begin!? Okay, well this is a FOR PROFIT ...lets call it organization that will be MORE than happy to accept your money! The credits are as useful as a mosquito bite, the instructors are often rude and take 2-3 weeks to grade your material, the work is that of "writing a personal statement " ...seriously! They do monthly plans that take days worth of discussions, the work most has nothing to do with anything! You can EASILY get and maintain a 4.0 gpa here! So if you want to pay gobs and... Read More

Online school gave me the flexibility to work in the field and go to school at the same time. Also going to school online was significantly cheaper than going on campus. Do not expect to just do the course work and get a job. You need to work in your off hours developing you skills and portfolio to stand out from the rest. If you do not do this, you will be leaving bad reviews on this site blaming the school instead of yourself. Most of my teachers were knowledgeable about their subject and very... Read More

Full sail is a for profit school, you don't need any prier education just as long as you can pay them. I can't speak for every degree program in the school but mine, the computer animation program. If you pull out a loan the average pay in your carrier wont be enough to cover the monthly payments of your loans. They wanted me to use Wells Fargo after they were no longer working with discover half way through my year. For some reason the School had the authority to tell Wells Fargo to split up my...

The programs are at a pace that will cause burn out rather quickly in the field that you chose to study. After you earn your degree you will have a less than 50/50 chance of finding work in your field. Here is the real kicker. Once you get your degree it is not worth that paper that it is printed on. YOUR CREDITS WILL NOT TRANSFER TO ANOTHER INSTITUTION. I am moving on and going for another degree at a state local college, I checked several including USF and NONE of my credits will transfer, I have... Read More

Degree: Computer Animation

I am currently an online student at Full Sail, finishing my 7th month. Let me start off by saying that my opinion is bias, I am reviewing strictly off of my own experiences so far, yours can be different. When my friend originally showed me this College, I was extremely excited to start ASAP.. environment creation was my passion and I had been working on traditional art by myself. Still I waited for a year and reviewed the college and gained as much information as I could before applying because... Read More

Horrible, horrible experience. An older student, with multiple degrees in areas of other studies. I'm quite experienced in the school process, along with both of my parents were teachers. I know it takes a lot of hard work, and I really put my blood, sweat and tears into this program. I live in Los Angeles, right in the heart of the industry, but I did the online program that FS offered in hopes that I would be working during that time. Many instructors do not really care about you unless you are... Read More

Full Sail is a for profit University that cost way too much money and at time it seem they are more worried about making money than giving their students a quality education. As an online student I was lucky enough to live near campus so I still felt like I was able to get the same type of experience the on-campus students get. If it wasn't for that I don't think my experience at Full Sail would have been as good as it was. I've heard of issues in the online degree programs pertaining to teachers... Read More
