As a graduate from the 1998-2000 era I had no issues with this school, it's teachers, or housing. (Alden Park was amazing!) I was a full time student at the age of 31 and balanced part-time work with a part-time nightlife (maybe alittle more) and I had a blast! Though looking back the bill was a bit much (50k?). Allot can change over time, so do your research!

The positives points are small class sizes & a few great teachers. The negative is you can transfer very few credits if any at all. EVEN other branches of AI will not accept all credits for transfer students. The cost is ridiculous. No real help for graduates when it comes to job placement. Some of the teachers are very unprofessional. Dorms are filithy. Save your time & money.

I have to give this school no STARS but in order to post you have to, but if it was up to me it would be none!!! People who attend this school are treated to unfair like they don't matter and that you are beneath them, they harass you, don't really help you if you need it...If they have it out for you, it seems more like they are prejudice. Instead of finding a solution to a problem they rather kick you out!! The dorms are dirty and they are filthy No one helps you when it is time for getting any answers!!! For what you pay for education here is unbelievable not worth it. Not to mention there is no meal plan.You can go to another school for less and better customer service, assistant and guidance. PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE GOING TO THIS SCHOOL!!!

I went to the school. I now know I owe around $200,000 for the most basic education you can get in the field. You are better off just going on YouTube and learning your trade from the ground up. Do not waste your money at this place. They have closed down half of their buildings where classes used to take place. This school is a waste of time and money.

This is the worst college you could go to. What little brain power they have goes into thinking of different ways to cheat you out of your money and then to find some excuse as to why its your fault. No one works with you. No one cares. If you're considering this college GO ELSEWHERE. They're the worst kind of people. I had a board director say he would take me to court for saying that he doesn't do his job or help people. I wish I would've read these reviews before I went. Everyone I know at this college hates it and somehow was cheated out of money. They tell you that paperwork you sent in was never received so you have to pay a huge fine before you can reenter the school or graduate. They're just liars and cheaters.
