I agree and experienced the same as with everything that posted on Ripoff 06/17/2015 on The Art Institute Online Div. EDMC the Art Institutes of Pittsburgh, EDMC, Education Management Corporation for Profit Colleges Pittsburgh Nationwide. Here is my situation. I started at AIOP in Spring of 2007 (graph design) with the Academic Counselors knowing that I was on Disability and trying to educate myself to be able get work with my disabilities. We had a very lengthy conversation. In that conversation he told me that if I would start then that he would lock my tuition price. So I did. Worse mistake that I have ever made! And of course I didn’t get it in writing. My interest in the beginning of entering into school was with Media & Animation. AIOP told me after about a year that I had to switch then or not at all. So I switch over (Media & Animation) after about a year. They did not tell me at that time that I would not have enough money to go for the four years to complete my degree. I had some credits that would not transfer over. I had multiple Academic Counselors and Multiple Financial Aid Counselors after a year and Noted that the classes where about the same. After two years I was told my tuition was going up and that my tuition was not locked. After three years in the media & animation program I was told that I would not have enough money to graduate without money out of my pocket. So I asked to return to the graphic design degree and they said that I could not, because I had already changed degrees. I looked into going to The Art Institute in my own state and was told that my credits would not transfer and no school in my own town would accept the credits. I was on disability and still am. I did not have the money for out of pocket I withdrew from classes in the winter of 2011. I then found out that they had locked me into two private student loads in 2007 to get me started with school. That I thought was Federal Loans. I was on disability making $13000 a year, what happen to my Pell money? When I asked Financial Aid about my Pell money they told me that school is not a free ride and that I would have to pay. That is when I withdrew. They then had to send money back and I had to pay them money to them for the class that I took in that quarter. Now, I am still disabled on SSDI ($14000 a year) and am not able to get work with my condition and not able to go back to school due to not able to loan money owning $75000 and raising every day. I don’t feel that it is my doctor’s responsibility to tell the department of education that I am disabled when SSDI already does, as well, as a Vocational Rehab and a physical evaluation. So I remain on repayment of my loans. No work, no education to open more jobs to me and not able to return to what I am experienced at. I feel that the school has scammed me, as well as the government. .
