I was so excited to be going backInterior Design
I was so excited to be going back to school, but due to needing to keep my full time job I opted to take online courses. RMCAD's online program is not geared towards the working class.The drafting class, which is a joke had over 8 hour projects with due dates that just weren't easy to meet working full time.

I also was misinformed by the financial aid department to leave my husbands information off of my FASFA as I was recently married. I was then awarded a grant, which over halfway through my first semseter was taken away from me and I was told I would owe it all out of pocket.

Then to make things even worse, I realized that this school was not going to assist me in gaining a fulfilling degree that was worth the money it was costing me I withdrew from the course I was currently enrolled in. Per the student handbook you had two weeks to withdraw, which I was within upon filling out paperwork. After fighting with the so called board I was told I hadn't made it within the period of time necessary and that I owed for the entire course I hadn't even taken.The best part when I went to use the student handbook as a reference the drop period portion was no longer available. Luckily in speaking to someone higher up in the financial aid department they refunded me the grant that was taken away but I still had to pay $1900-$2000 for a class I never took. This school does not care about it's students,just the money and the teachers don't even teach you anything you couldn't learn on your own. Don't waste your money on this school. I assure you it's not worth it.

Question
If you plan on going to this school
If you plan on going to this school do not rely on staff. Financial aid told me they were going to drop my classes and then didn't. They are charging me over 7,000 dollars. When I didn't go to one class and told them I wasn't going to be to afford to go to school there. And when I brought it up to them about the charge they stopped responding to my emails and were not willing to fix the problem.

Question
RMCAD is a joke.Art & Design Department
RMCAD is a joke. If you like to be around a bunch of stuck up rich kids, than by all means this place is perfect for you. The faculty and teachers do not expect you to be a free thinker. If you are self-aware and not a corporate zombie, than don't even consider this place. If you live in the Denver area and want an art degree. MOVE!
