BELOW AVERAGE

The Art Institute of Pittsburgh graduation rate is below the national average.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into account students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading picture. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare institutions.

I'm still bothered by my experience at AIPO. So much that I can't even write a proper review. I attended online in 2013, the worst mistake of my life! These people stole my money and NEVER sent the correct software for my courses. They also had control of my funds so I couldn't just buy what I needed on my own without coming out of pocket. Also, they said my tuition payment would be one rate, but when I started courses the rate jumped over $100 a month??? And why don't they have the money to cover that since THEY ALREADY HAVE MY FUNDS?? I still need help trying to get this situation corrected. I really want to file a lawsuit against the institute, what they're doing is immoral.

I took the Online Interior Design course for an Associate of Arts. I was told in the beginning that all the courses I took would be accepted at all colleges in the country. Turns out this is a lie. AI is a nationally accredited FOR-PROFIT school, and NONE of the "college courses" I took are transferable. These courses included Algebra 1 and Writing 1 - all Freshman classes required in colleges and universities throughout the United States.In addition, the tuition for ONE year at this "college" (lost accreditation the same year I stopped going) was ridiculous.

They lied to me about what the program I was signing up for actually taught. Then when I wasn't good at it they belittled me and I eventually left with no degree and a significantly higher amount of debt than they said I would have. Then to top it off they called and harassed me for more money and threatened to send a debt I never recieved a bill for to collections. That debt has never once appeared on my credit, they were trying to scare me into giving them an extra $6,000.

This school is amazing! But its not for people that aren't tech savvy or don't have a creative background. Also must be willing to work hard on your projects everyday. A great school for hard working individuals. Also financial stability is a must before attending, for items like computers, scanners, camera, Art supplies, Digital art program rentals require monthly payments. You never know when your devices might fail need to have money saved for those unexpected issues. I think the requirements overwhelm a lot of people its to much for them. Or financially they weren't stable enough to attend this type of school. Best Art school I have attended so far! Five star! on my end. Not a scam! just because someone didn't meet the requirements dose not make this accredited school/college a scam.
