I would not recommend going to this school. One, you don't really receive a quality "college education" -- even though it is officially accredited, you are not guaranteed that your units will transfer to another school (if you need to, or want to go on to grad school), or be regarded as valid by potential employers. Not only is the tuition expensive, but many graduates do not go on to successful "dream" careers in their field of interest (only a small percentage, actually). I know many grads who... Read More

I had transferred to the AI of Austin from AI of Tampa after the Pell grant was supposedly cut from there. I only had a year left before graduating, as they claimed, but upon going over my credits, Austin said not all of it would transfer over despite being the same program and school. Though, I would have enough to be able to finish in a year. Year passes and guess what? They said I had another year to go, because I didn't have enough credits transferred over! Frustrated, but I was talked into finishing... Read More

This place is garbage!!! The instructors don't give a crap about you admin just wants money . There is no teaching just telling students to Google it. Do yourself a favor and don't come to any of these rip-off schools . Teachers are constantly leaving the school or being let go

First, I left before I graduated. I realized after taking a year and a half of classes that this school was a sham and that the money I was paying was not going to be a good investment. Transfer Credits: This was ok. They tried to force me into taking beginning computer classes despite the fact that I had multiple programming classes on my transfer degree. They persisted even after I explained that I worked in the technical industry and that I could build and setup a computer from components, and... Read More

The New England Institute of Art is a scam, plain and simple. It's a diploma mill designed to saddle students with as much debt as possible while skirting around the barest minimum of what could reasonably be called a school. We'll start with Admissions, since that's initially what suckered me in. It's clear to me now that admissions representatives are trained to say whatever is necessary to get students to enroll, however misleading or downright false. I distinctly remember being told that AI had... Read More

Art institute is the worst school to go to. My experience there was very horrible, okay I will start with the school and students they are immature people some of them acted like high schoolers. Some students will scream in the halls sometimes it was annoying because you have to study and also there was hardly any space on the student lounge; and in the lounge people would play video games and would scream sometimes I would have to leave and try to fit in a quite room or mostly ended up homeless...

Don't go. They just want your money. I went for a year instate(Nashville) and got 27000 dollars in debt. That was on top of paying about 10000 out of pocket. The financial aid people were absolute no help. I asked them for recommendations for scholarships. They basically told me "We don't have any recommendations. You'll have to Google it." Such piss poor financial aid advice. It's not worth it. Just don't go. For the love of God, don't go.

I regret this decision a lot.They don't even care about you.They're so focus on getting your money,not to mention,they refused to give me my financial aid refund back and I was forced to pay $500 a month right out my pocket.Their housing is terrible I can't even have a quiet peaceful night without feeling hold or cold and the beds are awful.I have ADD and used the accommodations request to help me in class more but none of the teachers even acknowledge the fact I had that and was quite difficult...

I'm reading these things about my school and I do find it a bit suspicious now that Ai doesn't need portfolio for an art school, nor an SAT score or shot records... But I've enjoyed my teaching so far. I've learned a lot about Animation and have also received help getting jobs. There is a job fair twice every quarter and I feel my job advisor there has helped me as well as she can whenever she can. She even urges me to step up my game. But the money... I definitely don't see myself paying it all... Read More

This isn't a real school. It's a corporation posing as an arts college. Their sole mission is to enroll anyone with air in their lungs, borrow money from the federal government under your name and leave you with an eternity of debt with nothing to show for. The "academic advisers" don't have an education background. They are used-car salesmen that are trained to tell you anything you want. They entice young impressionable people with the promise of "Job Placement" into your "dream job". Their "Job... Read More

The school is a scam. They overcharge for everything. I received financial aid and grants from the government, and they took the entire amount of my grants and loans, plus made my mother take out a parent plus loan to pay for me being there 4 months. They took all that money, which would have been between $27,000 and $30,000 for four months, and that didn't even cover my books. I had to pay all my supplies and books out of pocket. Granted I had housing, but the housing was an apartment I shared with... Read More
