Good colleges that have visual effects programs

Preferably in the United States.

Answer what you had before you edited. You really have to search on your own to find some place in your $20k - $25k (tuition + housing) range. Your best bet will be to study in state somewhere to avoid out of state tuition which is just a ton of money. Then you have housing to pay for which is just a lot of money too depending on where you're going. Also, every campus pretty much has student jobs. And they just don't hand out internships, sorry...You have to apply for them like everyone else.

People are trying to help you and this is your reply? You will soon find when you don't put in two seconds of time asking a question people aren't going to take two seconds of time answering it.

How is that in any way specific? VFX involves concept art, matchmoving, rotoscoping, modelling, texturing, shading, lighting, rigging, animation, FX, matte painting, and compositing. You could be interested in any of these.

Look, I realized I was wrong so I changed the reply to something that wasn't rude.

Can you explain to me what rigging and matte painting is?
