Topics regarding layoffs at Art Institutes

Work at you own risk

Just received a message that the labor board cannot help due to the receivership and if you choose to work it is basically at your own risk. If the bankruptcy happens, you have to file and try to get paid by the courts.

Can An Employer Refuse To Pay Me?

Absolutely not. All the money you’ve earned is your property. If your employer refuses to pay you what you’ve earned, you have every right to sue them for those unpaid wages.


If you have not been paid in Nevada you can file a claim with I heard that if you do not file a claim and everything goes into bankruptcy that you may not be able to file. Instructors file before May 31st deadline. Also you can... read more


What's going with the last Ai's standing? Are y'all getting paid? Are students signing up? Not counting AiLV, because that's not EPF and it won't be Ai for much longer... #newSchool

The secretive new Illuminati owners

Critics of for-profit institutions and nonprofit conversions by some for-profits said they were concerned about the ownership changes for the Art Institutes and its sister universities. “It looks highly questionable,” said Robert Shireman, a senior... read more

What is happening with EPF and Studio ?

Our campus has been pretty quiet the last few months but noticed the digital resources are changing. New HR website and payroll. I assume this is just the start of an IT separation the court ordered with EPF / Studio and DCEH. The DCEH receiver has... read more

Some schools might survive

We are nonprofit and SACs accredited. Our campus numbers leveled off after year of drops. So much BS that students went to competitors. We did get bunch transfer students. People are feeling upbeat, but it could all fall apart if investment does not... read more

Student veterans

If you know of any student veterans at DCEH schools who have not received their GI Bill payments, please tell them to communicate with Veterans Education Success. They should also contact the VA. @GIBillRights

Apply if you need work.

If not for AiO, AiP would have closed when they sold the building. Most full-time faculty at AiP were let go years ago. For those who have been with Ai for a while, AiP Online Division was “Ai Online” originally, no reason it cannot go back to it... read more

AiP Not Accepting New Students

Art institutes under receivership are no longer admitting new students. New students are not being accepted at AiP and AiPOD (aka AiO). Source: the 1/24 3 pm AiO meeting with Monday.

Highly unlikely that AiP will come out of warning

Highly unlikely that AiP will come out of warning. Middle States is pissed that Ai lied to them about the ACICS schools looking at WASC as well as Middle States. It's a trust issue. Middle States never trusted DCEH even from when they tried to buy... read more

Contact Middle States

The Art Institute is currently under review by Middle States. I called them to complain and they said to use their contact form: If you have something to say the time is now! The decision will be made by the end of... read more

Arti Institutes in California

I’m an employee at an AI in California and the postings about school closures are true. Back in January, our SDOA explained to us that July is crucial for us. We want to be standing with flying colors so DCEH can look towards us. SDOA saying this day... read more

Ai Employees Shouldn’t be Surprised

This is from a March 2017 article, Ai was never of interest to Dream Center, “Ai will probably involve the most change” but no productive changes happened: Schools that will retain their independent boards of trustees, staff and faculty as they... read more

Art Institute of Portland

400 students at Art Institute of Portland. They do represent the Artsy environment of the Pearl District, and won't just disappear meekly into the sunset. These students are accustomed to interactive teaching, and won't be converted to online... read more

Dream Center = EDMC

No difference in how they treat their employees based on this. That's about 30 campuses and A LOT of jobs and students being hung out to dry. I'd really like to know their definition of "agile". At Dream Center Education Holdings (DCEH), we are... read more

Arbitration Agreement

I'm only an adjunct so any severance issues don't apply to me... but there is an open question if the arbitration agreements signed with EDMC when originally hired transferred over to DCEH. Nor am I a lawyer but am someone quite interested in it. I... read more

What about Ai Students?

All Ai employees, from admissions to career services, know the reality of Ai/EDMC/DCEH practices. There have been success stories with graduates in a couple of majors, but also, a lot of hurt students as well (those that never should have been... read more

The Art Institute of Colorado is closing.

Most staff was told by a mailed letter. Sad that Dream Works educational holdings could not man up and tell people in person. Sadder for some very talented students. I guess a few bad apples ruined it for the rest.

Art Institute Summer Classes

Towards the end of Spring quarter, colleagues and I were wondering if campus would even be open after Summer quarter. All of my summer classes were cut yesterday, and roughly 80% of my department's majors (not including mine) went teach out as of... read more
