Degree: Italian Language and Literature
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is a fraud. Was told I had to take out a private student loan to pay for everything. Attended 5 days and was pulled out of class because Fafsa didn't go through. They said that the loan would be cancelled but didn't and now i owe 2,200...

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2013

Sure the school was great for the first classes everything I hoped for but after a few months things went down hill like fast. First it started with a teacher that didn't even try to teach the students it was so bad That I actually tough the class how is that possible you say. I just read the book in detail and got things moving after a week of sitting in our ass doing nothing. I noticed the the school was not even equipped to give proper hands on experience. Also some teacher quit and got new ones then more quit to the point that they hired there own graduates to teach medical stuff I was LIKE WTF is this. This was a huge red flag should not have stayed Other students left also competently disappointed I should have followed . But since I started this I wanted to finish I did after that the school called to sign in for more classes by saying that I am smart have a bright future bla blah blah. Later I noticed some teachers that were teaching 2 different classes at the same time I hoped that will not happen to me but it did this time she had to teach 3 different classes that time I learned nothing had had to help the newer students instead of doing nothing for the whole class. After I got out for the real world I noticed that I wasted my time and money in that school I could not do nothing right in the field I studied on so I left because its better than getting kicked out right. Now I have a huge 30+ thousand federal loan to pay and more loans that I will have to file bankruptcy for used up all my grants have nothing left. I really want to start a protest to help other students from the going to the school and I also want to die if I do it will be in front of that school I want the media to be there. PLZ DONT GO TO THAT SCHOOL AND IF YOU ARE THERE PLZ LEAVE NOW.

Degree: Cosmetology
Graduation Year: 2017

I went to this school and recently graduated. Was able to get my license after two months of finishing my cosmetology program. Like a student mention on one of the reviews if you maintain focus on your education and take it serious you should be able to achieve whatever you want no matter what. If I was able to do it anyone can so just stay focus on your dream.

This school is a scam don't go to them. I regret everything about attempting this school. They are now trying to say I owe them more money then what I signed for. Now I have a lawyer looking into going after them for all the problems I have gone through with them. My advice to anyone find a better school then Fcc.

The just want to get you signed on those dotted line.... PLEASE, PLEASE RUN AWAY FROM THEM...

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

****SCAM**** This school has little to zero foundation. They don't know what they are doing. All those positives reviews must be fake reviews by someone who works there because this school its just a mess. If you show up to class every day you will pass. Yes scary specially for a future nurse. I feel I was over charged and every time I go to financial aid or to our bursa they seem to be insecure with their response. I can tell they don't know what they are doing and all I get is the run arrounds... Frustrating cause as a VA student I should be getting money back.. I was also not able to graduated as plan because the school couldnt find a clinical side for us..... This school IS A SCAM..... Someone needs to do something about it soon. Not only we the students are getting scam but also the government cause I'm sure they don't support these type of practices....

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2015

All liars, beginning from the Recruiting representatives, financial aid rep. All except Teacher Ms A. Just a month and cost me 1700 tuition and one year later IEC contacted me as they said I still owed another 1700. The rep who called me, Mr. B. he was super rude. When I asked him to talk to a supervisor he was the supervisor. He also said they were the owners. So, they are very aware of whatever happens there . Giving them 1 star is too much but there is no choice in these options. I would rate them -100.

Degree: Heating, Air Conditioning, Ventilation and Refrigeration Maintenance Technology/Technician
Graduation Year: 2017

HOCUS POCUS so RUN or you will get robbed of your tuition money. I was a student there. The instructor had no knowledge of the subject matter. I found that out the first day after asking him some serious questions. He was just teaching from the book. I did some detective work only to find out that my instructor was a student there him self the year before and has ZERO field experience. How can he make me ready for something that he has not even done it himself ever ? Very little hands on training. Practice tools are old. Practice equipment is old. During the tour before they rail you in they show you look this is new that is new don't buy into it when you go to use it its all beat up as they have 6 classes per day. If you need a machine or a tank to complete a hands on you have to wait till the class next door is finished which can be 2-3 days. I wasted a lot of time and money and have nothing to show for, so save your time and money and go somewhere you can learn something.

Degree: Radiology

Next chapter at FCC. They cannot find us an externship site. Out of sudden they start to text or call u like you do not work, you are just there all day for them, with the greatest news" if you do not go for externship you will be dropped". Like is your fault night students cannot attend day extership sites even when told admissions staff who clearly said it will not be a problem we have many sites as clinics, hospitals, urgent care. But after all there is nothing. Just a bunch of peoole playing music, pretending to teach you something I got some ph numbers (850) 245-3200 Comission for Independent Education, (850) 414-3300 Attorney General Office. And if there is a group lawsuit action please let me know.
