A focused education from an Art Institutes school can help students evolve from the creative thinkers they are into the creative professionals they want to be. Students are part of a collaborative, supportive community, where experienced* instructors provide the guidance and skills to pursue a career in the creative economy.
In addition, Academic Advisors help students choose a field to study, schedule classes, and discuss academic progress. Our Career Services staff works with students to prepare for their future, including job searches, interviewing skills, resumé writing, and networking, all designed to help them pursue entry-level job opportunities in their chosen fields.
Facilities and Resources
Our schools offer a learning environment with professional-grade technology applicable to each student’s course of study, where students have the opportunity to build a portfolio of work that demonstrates their skills and creativity to potential employers. Students are immersed in a creative environment—from classrooms to computer labs to studios to dining labs—that mimic what they’ll find in the workplace.
Many Art Institutes locations also offer housing for students on and off campus. Costs can be included in their financial plan, and school-sponsored housing gives students an opportunity to interact with other students and participate in school-sponsored activities.
Financial Aid / Tuition
Student Financial Aid Officers are available to guide prospective students through the process of securing financial aid they may qualify for. They also can help explore the options available, including grants, scholarship opportunities, and loans.
