Hector Verdugo

@Shelley- Students are free to keep what they already have. If you are paying for it you may want to use your free subscription through the school. It's up to you.

Hi from nj. Is there a link to the launchpad?
Hector Verdugo

@Dovid- Go into classes and it will be the class that starts with AAU
Hector Verdugo
56:24
@Dena- Thanks for pointing that out.
dovid Schwarzmer
57:20
I only see my classes so far. I don’t have a launchpad option.
dovid Schwarzmer
01:01:14
Oh ok so I don’t need to do it?
Ashley Thuener
01:01:32
that is literally my only option in my apartment
Hector Verdugo
01:02:45
@Dovid- I requested for it to be added to your schedule so you can go in and check it out. It is very helpful and cannot hurt to go through.
dovid Schwarzmer

Awesome thank you.

what would say is the biggest challenge for a new student entering the Academy of Art?
sage Houshmand
01:15:55
What is your recommendation for first time students when it comes to time management.
Nashane James
01:16:06

Thank you!
Mikayla Madera
01:16:30
Who could I contact to set up the tuition payments? I already spoke to my financial advisor but I am not seeing the payments we had talked about.
Ileana Flores
01:16:51
When they will send the video? I know a few they have not.

@Ilena: What video do you not have?
Brooke Pawlicki
01:17:38
I had ordered my supplies online and paid for expedited shipping. It got lost in the mail and is now expected on Monday, when I am supposed to be starting. Will I be able to catch up once I get my equipment? I'm expecting to get it sometime in the afternoon on Monday if there are no other problems or delays on their end.
seyedbehzad hamooni
01:17:39
My major is Landscape architecture I want to know that my MacBook Pro is support for my study?
Hector Verdugo
01:17:57
@Mikayla- Send me an email and I will connect you accounts receivable to make it easy for you. hverdugo@academyart.edu
Ileana Flores
01:18:22
I’m not sure but I hope you will send the video for today to emails so I can rewatch it and to be sure.
Kathleen_ArtU
01:18:57
@Ilena, yes, I will send an email tomorrow to everyone who registered, so you will get it from me
Hector Verdugo
01:18:59
@Jack- The process is not hard but obviously we don't want to encourage that, especially if a student may lose credits. If the majors are completely different the risk is losing units so the sooner the better.
Ileana Flores
01:19:19
Thank you and its Ileana. But its okay.
Kathleen_ArtU
01:19:33
@Ileana: We also post recordings here: http://blogs.academyart.edu/chats/current-student-chats.html
Ileana Flores
01:19:42
Ohh thank you!
Kathleen_ArtU
01:19:46
:)
Ileana Flores
01:20:24
For the softwares we need for classes, should we download them before Monday?
Josue Alexandre Ngann Yonn
01:20:29
my major is Game Design and your story about David encouraged me even more to start in the major at the Academy of Art
Gonzalo Cervantes
01:21:39
To be sure, for online students, once launchpad has been completed, will I then be able to see the outline for my other courses? I'm having trouble understanding if my classes will be via zoom or all videos and content I will be working through with professors and students. I enrolled yesterday.
Andrew Mottola
01:22:23
I'm coming from another school and my portfolio/transcripts are still under review. What if I sign up for a class that is waived after approval?
Ashley Thuener
01:22:44
Are we able to still access our launchpad class after the rest of our classes start?
Kelli Rainwater
01:22:56
With classes opening, how do the time differences affect the beginning of courses and due dates/times?
sage Houshmand
01:23:19
Does the academy offer any internship programs or access to places that might give internships
Gonzalo Cervantes
01:23:24
All makes sense. Thank you! Just wanted to be clear.
Gonzalo Cervantes
01:24:08
Perfect, thank you for confirming that for me!
Ashley Thuener
01:24:17
thanks!
Kelli Rainwater
01:24:52
By next year, for the spring show, will we need to physically submit work if we are specifically an online student? Say, I'm from Indiana. If a piece is chosen, will I need to ship it?

Thank you!
sage Houshmand
01:25:40
Thank you so much this really helped!
Samantha Spoon
01:25:54
I’ve heard that the launch pad is required and I’ve also heard it isn’t required to do. I know it’s very recommended but I won’t be held back from starting classes or anything right?
Kelli Rainwater
01:26:11
Thank you so much!!!
Evan Bogler
01:26:15
How do I view the times for my classes?
Ileana Flores
01:27:12
Be honest!
Hector Verdugo
01:27:40
@Evan- You are in OL classes. There is no set meeting time.
Kelli Rainwater
01:27:58
For supplies, do they have to be the specific brands that are listed?
Hector Verdugo
01:28:06
You are NOT in s zoom classes. I just checked your schedule for youl
Hector Verdugo
01:28:14
@Evan
Ileana Flores
01:28:16
Do we need everything from the supplies list?
Evan Bogler
01:28:19
Thank you so much!
Hector Verdugo
01:28:21
Hope that helps.
Ileana Flores
01:29:04
Should we ask our professor if we need need it?
Hector Verdugo
01:29:33
@Ileana- That's probably the best person to ask
Ileana Flores
01:29:41
Yes! Thank you!

The clay supplies have me worried is all. Sounds quite extensive, especially since I have never really done much with it before
Ileana Flores
01:30:16
Me too!
