My fiance would also be able to work, considering i work in sales my schedule is pretty lax except for the X-mas season. So if the online classes can give me a really good understanding then i would like to do that and with Full Sail they provide all of the software and a mac book pro to run them on. I'm not just going to into something without knowing if i can do it obviously, but i also don't wont to hinder my education.
I think its all dependent on your dedication. I'm now in my 4th month of the online program at Full Sail.

Here are things that you can consider:

1. You get a week to complete your main assignments

All assignments must be turned in on the due date at 11:59pm est

Depending on the class you may have more then one assignment due per week

2. Virtual classes

We have virtual class sessions which are mainly used for the major courses and there only once a week. Times vary for each class and so far they have been early as 11:00am and late as 6:00pm and they are on est also.

We ask questions,review projects for the week, critique projects,and have additional lecture directed toward the projects due.

Even though its recommended that you be in class it is not required and you can watch a recorded session of the class when you have the time to do so.

Other then that in the beginning you will at least be putting in 10-20+ hours per week for projects and there is a good chance that this will increase when you get further into the program.

If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask.
