Degree: Graphic Design

I saw some poor reviews and I am not certain why! I found that all of the coursework was framed to be relevant to my major, even in my science class, they explained how that knowledge would be used in design projects. The curriculum emphasizes real world use in every aspect of my learning. They ensure you feel prepared for the workforce and if you don't, you are given every opportunity to get support. I definitely recommend this school.

I am currently attending this school, and I just have to say that I have never been more unimpressed with the state of an accredited education program. I have kept a consistent 4.0 in my program, but the material is confusing, busy, and overall almost completely pointless more often than not. Rarely is the work relevant, or up to date. I often run the lessons by friends and family who work in the field I'm studying for, and they almost always tell me that what I'm learning makes no sense in the context... Read More

This school is honestly the worst. If you're wanting to pursue graphic design here, be prepared to learn music theory, more English, and random math, and also you'll have to create TV scripts. Doesn't sound like graphic design, does it?! Attending this school has genuinely been a waste of the last three years of my life and a waste of $70k. Don't go here.

I want my money back! This "school" is real world experience, in the fact that you're on your own. There is a fake support team and all these empty promises. However they trap you, they get your money then say you cannot transfer out. My TEM instructor said ' you're not here for the material, you're here to network.' I should've ran. I hope that this school is sued. During the pandemic they got my whole GI bill, while I was supposed to be an on campus I could NETWORK. This place takes... Read More

I am currently enrolled Full Sail University and I’ve had huge issues with them because as a returning student, they had me come back with a schedule missing several key, progressive classes. They admitted they don’t have a great policy for returning students and didn’t really have a plan. Eventually the course director said she would handle all of my main assignments herself and we’d come up with a plan together. She then went on to miss our first zoom call, and then never gave me any feedback on... Read More

Communication at full sail is horrible they only took a few credits from my previous school which I had 30 they didn't even use half. I am in my first semester and I was doing fine not like a top of the class student but I have been doing my best. While I have still been in my current class I got an email saying I was being taken off my current degree and moved to a media certificate which is no where to my goal! I've talked to the advisors and it has just been a nightmare now I owe $6000 and have... Read More

I'm currently in the Graphic Design program at Full Sail University. I've never dreaded an education more than I have within this program. Going into it, I had already amassed a somewhat sizable pool of knowledge of design, but I was talked into attending just to get the paper. Worst decision of my life. Now I'm stuck in $20,000+ of debt and all I got out of it was a MacBook and a playlist of YouTube videos to watch. This system (if you can even call it that) of education that Full Sail has built,...

This school is a complete joke. The teachers do not know what they are doing and decide to teach you using youtube videos. They waste your time and don't answer questions when you ask them. They also do not answer their emails or respond in a prompt manner. I had one class where the teacher did not even grade the assignments until 2 weeks after the class was finished and then noticed a bunch of other students leave the class I was in halfway through because they had failed and had to repeat. Avoid... Read More

I greatly enjoyed my time at Full Sail and feel like I really got the education I paid for. I did the online Graphic Design BS program. I see a lot of negative reviews for Full Sail on this site. But, from my perspective, it was a great ride and well worth the money. I will say you have to be self-motivated and serious about your education if you are attempting any online program. Every month is a different class and the classes are taught by people who are or were in the Graphic Design field. That... Read More

I had studied for one of the online bachelors degree that they offered. Let's just say one thing, every time I talked to the administration office or student liaison it was almost a new person every call if not every other call. I don't know if it's high turn over rate or what but normally institutions have a consistent group of people working with students and I find it odd how I found myself meeting a new person each time. This continued over 3 years. Now how this effects my academics is concerning.... Read More

This entire school is a joke. There are maybe 3 teachers out of all of them that actually care to create their own coursework and tutorial videos. You could literally teach yourself the entirety of what they "teach" you via YouTube tutorials or Google. I have had plenty of teachers actually link to another professor's work not even attached to this school on instead of teaching the course themselves. Responses are always delayed and unhelpful as well, and it's generally as if the instructors... Read More

Amazing graphic design online program. It challenged me, was fun, increased my knowledge and ability to design. The staff and instructors are helpful, approachable, caring, and experts in their subject field. My time at Full Sail was worth every penny I spent. I'd recommend Full Sail 100%.

I just want to forewarn anybody who is considering Full Sail Online (that's all I know of it, I was not a campus student) that the school is solely a piece of paper (if you make it to the end.) I feel like it was a waste of years and that I need to continue learning by myself (which we mostly had to do) but now I'll have the time to learn what I want and actually get in depth details. Most instructors took forever to get grades back, and each class lasts a month long-- if an assignment builds upon... Read More

So far, I love this school. Anything that has gone wrong while attending has been entirely of my making. I did have problems when I was first trying to get in. A couple of the student advisors weren't people friendly and were not as attentive as they should have been but that was finally remedied when I finally got the nerve to ask for someone who would do their job. Other than that issue, it's been great. I have recommended this school already to many people and have even tried to get people to... Read More

Full Sail University is one of the best. They actually take the time and prepare you for the real world. Your classes actually matter and are not just there to fill the time or for an extra credit. I feel that they fully prepared me to go out in the real world as a designer. I learned valuable skills and was given advice that I will take with me. The instructors care and are always there to help. The student support is amazing, everybody wants to help and are there for advice, feedback, and just... Read More
