This isn't a real school. It's a corporation posing as a private art college, whose sole purpose is to ruin young financial lives. Their mission is to enroll everyone under the sun, borrow money from the federal government in the form of student loans using one's name & pass the never ending debt off to you. Google EDMC/ Art Institute lawsuit & you will learn about the hot water they got themselves into for fraudulent recruitment tactics.
