Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham They are a predatory for profit school with no accreditation! Durham, North Carolina

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I enrolled in the Art Institute of Raleigh-Durham two years ago with the promise of a Bachelors Degree and a guaranteed job when I graduated. Since then I have learned the the Art Institute is a for profit school that does not offer the education or degree they promised. They use recruiters to lure prospective students in and fail to tell them of the tremendous cost of the program. Most students are not shown an actual cost of classes and then they are constantly changed by the financial aid people. 

I was told that the school was established and had graduates from my particular degree program. Come to find out that no one had every graduated from the program because the school was only 2 years old! The instructors have to make up the classes as they go along because no one has taken the classes before! They pretend to offer all kinds of services to help you find a job during and after school but when you talk to a career services counselor they always try to find ways to get around helping you. 

My family has been forced to the edge of bankruptcy just from attending this school and I haven't even started to pay my student loans yet, which may be well over $60,000! If anyone is considering attending this school please do not!!!! Do your research beforehand. This school as well as others currently has a lawsuit against it and I am in the process of trying to file a lawsuit as well!!!!
