From the get go when you apply, theyQuite BrightArt & Design Department
From the get go when you apply, they are rude. And when I was going through this process which I have done before I was reminded of how rude the people working for administrativd offices were. Then when I class I had a teacher who didn't have the needed upgrades for her computer, (I went online), and she kept blaming me for not sending it right even though I had a brand new apple computer. Her softwhere wasn't up to date. How can you teach an online clsss an not have the correct softwhete? Not only that but she had never taught the class before so she had no clue what she was doing. And when she would try to get exactly explain things she would use very large vocabulary to make it sound like she knew what she was talking about but she didn't. I myself have a large vocabulary and all it was was jumbled sentences to throw the students off to make it look like she knew what she was talking about! Not only that but the administrative offices and your academic advisors and financial advisors were not only rude but incredibly unorganized. They would try to if me in classes that were not even in my mager and I'd have to correct them and argue with them. And then they messed up my financial aid! Another thing that is disappointing is that a lot of the teachers are nice. It have no business being art teachers and you barely learned a thing from them. There's also a lot of bullying that goes on on campus from the students. They don't know how to critique correctly so they just bash everyone's work. And those are usually the kids there on mommy and daddy's dime. They also let anyone in. I don't care Bout that. But if someone has genuine talent they should receive some sort of scholarship especially if they don't have a lot of money. It shouldn't matter if your going full time or part time or online. They also got rid of the gearbox. Which is extrelmely frustrating. Excuse now you have to pay for all that equipment out of your own pocket! And that's difficult when your on a tight budget. It's sad it seems like all this school wants to do is make money. I haven't even seen them produce any exceptional artists. Excuse every time they get a decent teacher they treat them like crap and they leave. This school has gone waaaay down hill. And the product that comes out of this school shows it. There just another for profit college ripping people off. I mean if you want our money can't you atleast be NICE?

Question
Faculty can be very difficult to deal with.Bright
Faculty can be very difficult to deal with. School only cares about money and do not care if there's any actual teaching going on. Some of the professors were great but many are terrible and don't care if you learn. But you will pass the class. Everybody does.

Books are no longer covered and in many classes the supplies can be upwards of $300.00 and many of the supplies were not necessary but required.

Only a couple of my professor challenged me to do my best work and others just give A's. It's hard to trust the A you get when people are passing classes that can't spell or even use a period in an entire paragraph.

It's nothing more than a degree mill as other reviewers have said. If you just want the paper and don't care to learn... go to RMCAD. But I would advise you to stay away or know in advance that you will be very frustrated all the time at RMCAD.
