Although the price is high it is well worth it if you apply yourself. The amount of knowledge to be gained is limited only by how much effort you put in. Yes, there are occasional instructors who are not so eager to help- but will if you ask. If taking online classes, be prepared to check in every day in order to keep up on discussions. All in all I am thrilled I decided to join AAU.
I graduated with an AA in Graphic Design. It was the best education, ever! It was pricey, but well worth it. I did the entire program online and enjoyed it. The work was challenging and it's not for the lazy student.
