How are your current students handling the tuition increase? I'm nervous to see how this is going to affect our campus.

Students are leaving and adjuncts aren't being invited back.
The new tuition price includes all books and kit materials.
The art institutes are career colleges which is worse than private school and public institutions
Though the price increase may be similar to other private colleges, private colleges often have full time faculty, adequate staff, and resources that DCEH removed before their incompetence put the Dept of Education’s mishandling of the situation in the spotlight.
The price increase is not justifiable by any means because Ai has officially lowered the standards in for-profit education, an accomplishment that should embarrass and cause concern for anyone in education.
I bet those schools have full time faculty lol
Unless you want to attend a public institution this price is actually mid-range for a private colleges. Just take a look at prices for undergraduate credit hour costs in Florida. The average cost is $554 compared to public at $132. Here are the 2019 Tuition Comparison Between Colleges in Florida.

I don't think it will have a huge affect on current students that are close to graduation. But I feel like it will be extremely difficult to bring in new students at that cost.
@10Yp6ML8-1fvx VA Beach.
That's way too expensive for this "school."
@10Yp6ML8 At what campus are you located?
I think those in charge are trying to shed as many students as possible in as short a time as possible. Increasing tuition is the way to do it.
They'd like to shut the doors for good. I expect an announcement of final closure next quarter.
$535 per credit hour for a handful of adjunct instructors? Some of which are just AI grads with very little real world experience? How could anyone ethically recruit students to enroll? The college has certainly gone downhill.
It should be against the law for these schools to continue operating. The students graduate making less than 40 thousand a year. It will take them a lifetime to pay the debts owed to this school. I hate the art institutes. I hate I ever worked there. That place is nothing but a sh–hole..
The official letters were sent out today notifying students.
@10Yp6ML8-whw Tuition is being increased unfortunately. Since the campuses are independent now, the schools are responsible for their own funding. Schools can no longer rely on profitable campuses to help stay afloat.
@10Yp6ML8-eym I'm not entirely sure. It applies to the Atlanta and Va campuses for sure.
Is that increase across all Ai campuses?
WOW! I thought they were supposed to be decreasing tuition?! Isn't that why they downsized in the first place?
From $486 to $535 per credit hour? I don't think our students know yet but I doubt they'll be happy about it.
