The only issue I had was with financial aid. The women that deals with the financial aid is very nasty. If u are a few days late they will come pull u out of a class to talk about the payment& will put you out of school if u can't pay,regardless of the 30,000 check they receive for your student loan. And this women's office is in the bookstore so if u haven't paid she will hold your books
First of all I graduated last year from the Medical Coding and Billing class and found out the state boards that had taken was Worthless because no one took their credentials, I still have to take the CPC from an Accredited College because their Not. So the admission rep tells me to continue my education and become an HSA it's an Associate's Degree. OK well now I'm in this program part the way through it, another school takes over, changes the rules including the curriculum, a lot of the staff left and all these New People started taking over, they cancelled the online classes abruptly and added more classes to the class I'm already taking making my graduation date even further away. Money, tuition oh let me tell you about that.You're charged 80.00 a month whether you have a job or Not and to make sure you pay they have this lady that hounds you and that she can't give you Your books for your class until you make a payment. Never mind that she's holding back books that are already paid for through your financial aid.So the teacher gives me PowerPoint presentation she's made copies of so I won't miss out on the lesson and homework. Yeah this school sucks.Some of the Teachers are wonderful but this new FCC is a complete scam. I can be reached at email@example.com for the Ligitator that wants to pursue this.
This college does not care I'm a current active reserve soldier and I'm on my last two classes. First they told me I had one class left then then they tell me I have two I'm deplopying in two months and now they don't have me schedule for no classes.
I Am still attending this school. I was talking to a couple students who will graduate soon. 2 of the 4 already have jobs lined up in the HVAC field. The other 2 didn't apply as of yet. 2 of the 3 instructors in the evening classes are Jacksonville City Electrical Inspectors, which of course includes HVAC. There was no real sales pitch. No pressure from financial aid office. I held out for a couple days thinking on the financing. They didn't call and hassle me or anything.
You make my put in a graduating year, but hell no did I graduate from this overpriced crap hole. They changed their curriculum twice midyear, and if by chance you'd like to further yourself after... Good luck finding a school to accept your credits. Not even state college takes FCC credits. Do yourself the benefit of choosing a local state college, it is A LOT!!! Cheaper and you have much more options afterwords should you choose to go to a university.
All happened in 2008 I was 18 interested in going to a trade school to do something with my life.Ended up walking in and got approached like if I was in a car dealership it was the admission guy who makes commision when hooking someone in.How do I know? School is always hiring and I seen they get paid bonuses and commisions..Got talked into and got a presentation of the school I will admit at that time I was impressed comming out of high school eager to make something out of my life.Guy gave me a killer SALES PITCH and hooked me,long story short.I signed the papers and got my own mother to sign away.My mother is Spanish and does not understand how the school worked and was defensive.The counselors and staff disarmed her..So it went on...Innitially it was for just computer repair guy showed me indeed.com average salary was 36k at the time feeding me how much money I will be making and if I do the fake associate degree i would be making 80k......Keep in mind it was 2008 worst times of all in the economy.So I ended up doing the program under my name alone I completed 9 months.I was persuaded to extended just another year with the pitch sale over and over again.THIS TIME I COULDNT DO IT ALONE,I had to get my mother to co sign for the sali mae loan.FUNNY thing is that i have a couple of freinds like Robert And Jorge who are in the same boat.Being young you want to aspire and move on with your life.The pitch sales and promises and life service you would get got me moving emotionally.I kept on with the school And IT was horrible.I got in the school without a High School Diploma or Testing and I can proove it!I was with students who barely spoke English.There was NO HANDS ON only 1 time.After I graduated with my Associate Degree without a high school diploma.I DID NOT GET ANY I.T JOBS LIKE PROMISED.I did however get my resume created.IN DEBT ARROUND 50K in the whole.Contacted the school and career service for help all I can get is advice to pursue more certification.I got certifications after I graduated and still to this day I am JOBLESS IN DEBT WITH Sallie Mae harrasing me and my mother to pay back.I have at Least 4 Freinds I can name who will agree with me..Like the students in the school throughout time will say..Florida Career College-THE COLLEGE THAT CARES ABOUT YOUR MONEY...So if any Lawyers want to contact me go ahead or someone share your stories... Thank you
Looking to connect with other students whom were totally dissatisfied with school and felt they were sold "a bill of goods" and have considered taking legal action against this institution of cons
Horrible school. Having teachers that have had their RN license revoked and on the displinary board. Classes are a joke, teachers cant control high school students. FINANCIAL AID IS A RIP OFF. None of the administrators "care" like their slogan claims. Tried dropping out but then your threatened with money problems. Wish i knew then what i know now. DO NOT GO HERE THEY ONLY WANT YOUR MONEY!!
I paid $50.000 for an associates degree in medical office administration. now im going for my nursing and none of the schools take credits from FCC. so i basically wasted my money and my time. I graduated with 4.0 GPA. this school is over priced and it is NOT accredited for healthcare programs.
I started my nursing program in FCC thinking everything was fine. Until my friends told me that was a really bad choice of mine going to FCC for my associates. I researched the school and it says it was approved and not accredited. I went to the director of nursing and she said they working on getting their accreditation higher but they might get it in 2019. The school accreditation is too low, you will not go forward on your education and career. I met a girl that finished her associates there and she told me she had to go back to school and retake every class again because no school wouldn't accept her credits to go for her bsn. No hospital will hire you. Please don't do the same mistake. I went to the school and withdraw asap , thank God it was only 2 weeks in there. Make sure you research your school before you go there.
