Many students have complained that this college is only after your money. Well yes they are a business, most colleges would not last and wouldn't be around if they weren't making money from their students. Professors and others who run the campus have bills to pay too. Even state colleges and universities throughout the United States are there for the money as well.

The college is accredited, it was fully accredited in 2007. They also offer many of their majors online but only the ones that have been accredited for online work. Certain majors like architecture are only available through the campus.

Do your research, go to their website and read about them, go to wikipedia and type in

Academy of Art University
and click search, you will come across a lot of info on the university itself.

As far as the university buying up real estate throughout San Francisco, well I don't care about the politics. I understand that its annoying but hey at least its students that are using those buildings, its better than having some other corporation come in and turn them into condos.

College is what you make of it. But yes, AAU is legitimate, they are accredited, the online majors that they offer are also accredited for online work. Certain majors like architecture are campus only because they were only accredited for the campus and not for online work.

AAU seems to have been working really hard lately to be taken seriously and I think its great. I respect them for that. They are open admissions because they want to give everyone a chance to at least try. They don't give out degrees, you have to EARN yours and work your butt off to get it. Yes they are somewhat expensive but that's any college these days, there are more expensive colleges than AAU.
