I accidentally had a family in my firstNot so brightArt & Design Department
I accidentally had a family in my first year of college out of high school and had to drop out. Later in life I decided to go back to college. I though that it would be really difficult having 3 kids and that maybe I had gotten dumb over the years but RMCAD proved me wrong! It was SO easy!! Too easy, in fact. The answers to EVERYTHING are easily found on google. The professors are not knowledgeable and give everyone an A. The discussions are completely pointless and I found myself just going through the motions and not really learning anything I couldn't have taught myself so I switched to Hodges University which I am REALLY excited about.

My BIGGEST problem is that that staff is basically unreachable. The financial aid department is inept. I think they found homeless people on the street and gave them a job... actually that's insulting to the homeless. These folks are just completely LAZY, USELESS and RUDE. I had a couple of half decent professors but the financial aid and adviser's offices are a total joke. RMCAD IS A DEGREE MILL. It's a University of Phoenix. They don't even test you!!!! It's also EXTREMELY OVER PRICED!! Don't go here! Go to Hodges!

Question
The school itself is fantastic, professors are friendly,Bright
The school itself is fantastic, professors are friendly, charismatic, and always willing to help in any way possible. The staff in the business office are usually dismissive and rude. If you do decide to go here be prepared for random delays on Financial Aid being applied to your account and/or receiving your Stipend check. In some instances students are forced to wait 7 or 8 weeks to get their checks at the end of term due to delays.

Question
Every Art College has issues.Quite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Every Art College has issues...heck every student has issues, but RMCAD is a quaint, quiet, loveable place full of responsive Professors, a dedicated staff, and a true kind-hearted leader as a President. The school is for profit, owned by Full Sail, and on the cusp of change. If you're looking for a place to make a name for yourself as an artist - RMCAD is definitely a well positioned platform for you. The CEO is completely open to student ideas, and he's striving to improve the conditions of student learning while keeping pace with the difficult demands of the Marketplace. I'm half-way through my program, and yes, there are schools I would go to if I had the chance, but RMCAD is evolving into a place for innovators, open-minded students with an interest in entrepreneurship, and people looking for a respite from the bustle and impersonal nature of large Universities. This is a craft college, a niche market, and a great spot to launch your career into the surrounding Denver and Western states.
