Remember Art Jobs do not require a college degree, but if u wish to get one Do Not Pay A House For It. Plenty of other schools much more creditable and economical. The teachers there are kind and school is enjoyable to attend but you definitely pay way over the amount to go to shcooi. Very few Get Good jobs in area of training after graduation. I Used my military GI bill, plus student loans, plus made payments from my check (was working at jiffy lube at time not making much) and they still wanted me to take out another plus loan. I work at an Air craft parts job now. I Don't even put this school on my resume. Pa all that money for a hobby...smh. Recommend you DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE as I did.

Don't waste your time or money. This is a horrible place to try and learn, an absolute joke. It's a sham of a school no one should be subjected to...RUN IF YOU CAN.Honestly would learn more from a Youtube video than you would in a semester here.

I am a vet and decided to enroll here to pursue photography. Moved to VA Beach and had a blast going on campus. Had to move back to the Midwest and enrolled in online class for the Chicago campus. I've had nothing but problems since enrolling now over a month ago. I still get phone calls and emails every week about missplaced paperwork or them not being able to assist me with my courses. Absolute worst experience for any adult. They've also dragged their feet on sending over my Veterns paperwork to the regional office and won't get paid until mid August. I've had to pick up a job since. Hands down avoid online courses with this college at all costs especially if you're a vet and using your benefits. I've tried to drop a class now going on 3 weeks. They expect you to purchase class materials out of pocket and it's absurd at how much it costs. Especially in photography. The teacher said I literally cannot participate because I was missing some equipment. Perhaps the school should've put my paperwork in sooner so I could get my benefits and supply stipend so I could participate in the courses.

If I had to give a rating on the Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago based on the tuition then yes of course I would rate it 1 star. Aside from the tuition this is a great school, at least based on my experience. I have been fortunate enough to be taught by some of the best. I appreciate the time, effort, and encouragement I have received from my instructors, this holds true for my former program director as well. There are some instructors who continue to mentor you long after graduation. If it wasn't doing to much I would pay homage to each of them by name right here on this platform.I believe that it is totally up to the student to push forth effort to absorb all that the instructors have to offer. Their years of experience and compassion should be enough to motivate one who is ready to learn. There have been plenty of times I have mentally noted that some students have not been turning in work the entire quarter, and some of us are guilty of not even reading one chapter of our online text books (which is sorta a downfall because some of us still like physical books). What you put is what you get out. I truly believe the Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago gives you the tools you need for starting your own business and or working for a corporation. I am very much #AIproud
