For Parents: The Full Sail Advantage
Why Full Sail’s accelerated degree programs, sunny locale, and locked-in tuition rates can make it the right place for your child to pursue their dreams.
Whether you’re in the midst of submitting applications or just looking toward the future, helping your child choose the right school for college is an important task. Weighing the pros and cons of a university can include several factors, from tuition and location to culture and graduate success.
In this guide, explore more about what makes Full Sail unique and why our programs might be the right fit for your motivated, creative, and self-starting student.
At Full Sail, our degrees have the same amount of credit hours as traditional colleges, but our students complete their degrees at an accelerated pace. While the national average time for bachelor's completion is 5.6 years , Full Sail students are graduating just 2-3 years from the time they start school.
With the ability to attain a bachelor’s degree in just 20 months, Full Sail’s accelerated programs will prepare your child for the realities of the rapid pace of careers in the entertainment media and technology industries and get them moving toward their dream careers sooner rather than later.
Locked-in Tuition & Project LaunchBox
Every student who enrolls at Full Sail is guaranteed a locked-in tuition rate. This means that the projected cost of your child’s education will not fluctuate from semester to semester. Based on their start date, their degree program, and when they apply, the cost of their tuition will not change. Even students who require an interruption of training (approved time off) will still be locked into their original tuition rate.
Another Full Sail advantage is saving on one of college’s most overwhelming costs – books. At Full Sail, every student receives their own Project LaunchBox. Designed to give students exactly what they need when it comes to creating and building their portfolios, the LaunchBox is unique to each degree program. This ensures that students receive computers, equipment, and software that reflect ever-changing industry standards, and any additional books that may be required are included as well.
And better yet? The cost of LaunchBox is already factored into your child’s tuition, reducing unexpected costs.
Industry-Standard Campus Spaces
From game studios and venues to boardrooms and film sets, Full Sail’s classrooms are designed to look and feel like industry production environments – because they are. With over 110 campus labs and studios, we provide your child with the same technology and environments they’ll encounter in their career.
Whether they’re mixing audio in our flagship recording studio, designing their dream game in our game production studio, or working on a technologically advanced virtual film set in Studio V1, your child will have access to the tools and hands-on experience they’ll need to propel their dreams forward.
Full Sail’s campus also offers spaces and support for a variety of its student groups and communities, including the International Student Society, Veteran Student Union, PRIDE club, Black Student Union, and more.
Even after graduation, Full Sail will continue to support your child’s education. With our options for continued education, students can return to revisit courses and stay up to date on new techniques, technologies, and trends in their field, no matter how far removed they are from graduation – free of charge.
Located in Winter Park, just outside of Orlando, Full Sail’s campus is near everything your child will need for an enriching college experience. Local areas and neighborhoods offer restaurants, entertainment, sporting arenas, and more; just 30 miles from campus your child can access three of the nation’s most popular theme park resorts – Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld Orlando.
