Degree: Technology Management
Graduation Year: 2016

Any of the I.T. certificates offered you can probably do on your own, there is a text book and test you can take, or go to an institution that gives value for what you are paying. Do your self a favor and make sure you are getting a great education for your money. I waited to long because yes the people are nice, but the institution is corrupt. FCC charged my financial aid two full time semesters nearly $10,000 plus had me paying a subsided student loan for my 4 months of poor education. Be informed before signing any papers exactly what you are signing up for. Their curriculum is a test and possible answers, study and take the same test at the end of the month. For $14,000 I can educate myself on Microsoft, Excel, word and so forth. I discovered that this school is the epitome of fraud, and there are other schools like it. these giant money pits for your grants and money. I lost a lot of money in just 3 months by the 4th month I left but of course they still charged me for it. I went back to Broward College, took four classes and received my AA for less then what FCC charged for four months of attendance. The loan debt is a nightmare especially when it is such a poor school and investment that you may not get the career you need to pay back such significant amounts.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

This school is a disgrace all they care about is making money. Nobody in corporate picks up the phone you get new professors every other day. I basically taught myself everything I needed to know. I would not recommend their nursing program ever!!!!!

Degree: Computer and Information Sciences and Support Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2009

The classes were poorly structured, the teachers were freshly graduated from other school and had little to no real-world experience in the field and the curriculum was hot garbage. After 3 months of "Go to page 20 and write all 50 question and answers" with no other instruction I quit but I still owe 20k

Degree: Medical Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm embraced to say I attend Florida career college. My current employer still makes fun of me for attending. NOT WORTH THE MONEY! Worst mistake I could have made. Better off attending SPC. Don't let admission fool you, they are way over priced $19,000 for an MA degree

Degree: Patient Care Technician
Graduation Year: 2016

I was told nothing but lies from the beginning. When I started realizing I was being lied to and began questioning them, I was given answers I wanted to hear but had nothing to do with the truth. I had time to quit before I was responsible for my student loans but they convinced me everything would be fine by bringing in previous students who were lucky enough to halfway succeed. It is now time to graduate and I am being told they can't graduate this class as they have no internship and no way of completely the program. I was told I would be a PCT but there is NO such thing, you get a CNA Certification for the bargain price of 16,000 dollars which you could have gotten from any Florida Public Tech School in 3 weeks for 199.00. They do not tell you that you must pass a level2 background check to receive a CNA certificate and when it becomes an issue they tell you (with a smile) that sometimes these background checks fall through the cracks. I suggest you research other schools and run from this one. They only want your money and any instructor who tells you the truth is fired within days.

Degree: Patient Care Technician
Graduation Year: 2015

I.started classes in 2014 .when i went for interview for enrollment options i was falsly informed of the correct information regarding what i waa looking forward to pursing . Every specific question i had in reqards to what i was looking for was answered in lies.BASICALLY PCT IS ONLY AN 9 CNA CLASS THAT COULD'VE BEEN TAKING IN 3-6 WEEKS ELSE WHERE .CAREER services doesnt help you at all until you graduate and find your own job .they will call ask you information about your job andm ark it down as they helped you.thry only offer you help in finding home health jobs . Its 9 modules and 7 of them repeats information just under a different curriculum name .if you have any question no one answers them thry send you to the next person leaving you still with no answer.They run the good teaches that care away .you get a different set of books each mod and only go over maybe 2 chapter s out of an 50 chapter book only to revery back to one book with all the information. Basically you can teach your self. Upon completion you still have to take an phlebotomy class or challenge the boards for.to be certified in that .you still have to yakemore classes on ekg to get an certification .no one cares its all abiut money to them .p.s RUN FAR AWAY AS YOU CAN

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Know that None of their credits count but you will pay over $450 a credit hour. They lied to me & no school in Florida considers me a college student so don't plan on transferring or getting a bachelor's degree. I owe $35,000 for credits that are not accredited!
