I don't know about anyone else here, but I would reccommend you try another school. The art institute of atlanta and dc, have both been a horrible experience. Both me and my wife attended each school and it would be better if you tried a different school. They are a private college and they pretty much can do whatever they like. The price is not worth it. I have heard great things about SCAD (Savannah College of Art Design). One of the only teachers that really helped me in my art was an alumni from that school. So just make sure you research as much as possible before deciding where to go.

Also, I'm not sure about the other schools in the Art Institute network.

Hello, I haven't been to any of the campus' but I have had experience with the Art Institute Online. If you are traveling for a good school, this is not it for the price. It is the same price as the good schools. I also heard a lot of good things about SCAD (Savannah College of Art Design). I am not sure what your needs are, but most colleges do teach graphic design. Do you have a particular state in mind? If prices is a factor, I would try York University or Sheridan College in Canada. Great schools for a much better price. I toured the both locations a few years back, I was very impressed.

Best of luck!
