Florida Career College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (77)
I would not recommend enrolling in this career college, especially Jacksonville. Some campuses are better than others, but the programs themselves are not organized, or going to truly get you knowledged to find a decent paying job. Executive Directors have no clue.
Bursar will withhold money from you, after completing your portion of tuition, Admissions will admit anyone and currently Jacksonville campus is under investigation with the FEDS. No Federal Aid money is being distrubuted to the campus from the government until investigation is complete.
AFTER you are enrolled, and have started the Bursar will expect you to pay, what you are entitled to from the Federal Aid money. Most graduates will not receive the proper assistance in getting a job.

Is anyone enrolled and can provide me with info on the RN program...is it accredited and what is FCC reputation in the working world as far as RN goes?
I was initially interested in this school because their Massage Therapy and Clinical Skincare courses sounded pretty good, the admissions officers on the other hand were senseless incompetent people who basically tried to swindle you into applying for the course. They couldn't give me any answers to my questions and they flat out lied to me during the interview process. It was very unprofessional and disorganized... if you are an international student I caution you about this school because apparently no one at the PP location knew anything about international students. If the admissions officers are this clueless about their job roles..can you imagine the professors
This school took over a school called EduTech which was a wonderful school. I attended FCC in 2007/8 and saw their best instructors quit or fired. They dropped their best program, Paralegal and it went down hill from there.
Im so scared now to go to this school i had my mind set but now i dont know where i wanna go im so confused....
DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! I attended this school in 1998 when it was called Segal Institute for the Microsystems Technology. The main reason I choose this school was because they said that if I graduated that I would be allowed to come back anytime to get updated on new computer software/hardware. Can't remember if I received a contract or not. I tried to go back 3 years ago and spoke with a counselor. Obviously I told him about the offer I had. He didn't really listen to me and went on about the total cost of tuition, books, etc. which was a ridiculous amount (Believe it was something like $20,000 to $25,000 for either a networking or computer security course which was about a year long).
I told him again that I was told I can come back at no cost to me. He again tries to ignore the fact that I can speak out loud or something because he ignores me and continues with what he was saying so I make sure he hears me and I stop him at whatever he was saying. He then goes to speak with someone else privately and comes back to tell me they can give me a discount. I refused the discount and wanted to take advantage of what they offered me in the beginning but they would not honor it.
It had been so long and I didn't keep any documents but I now wished I would have (lesson learned). He then gets me to speak with the head person of the school in person which was the person he spoke with privately. Of course I'd have to explain everything again and get no where. She then tells me "It looks like you aren't interested in furthering your career." I remember those words exactly. I tell her I am interested but it sure as hell will not be with this school.
To the present day I'm trying to enroll at Saint Petersburg College and I need a transcript from Florida Career College and they have been so NOT helpful. First I leave voice message for the registrar on a Tuesday and give her a day and call her back. That's when she picks up and says oh yeah I just listed to your voice message and was just about to call you. I thought nothing of it and tell her what I need. She gets my info and tells me to call her back Tuesday if I hadn't heard from her. I call back and leave a message to call me. I give her a day and don't hear back from her so I call again and leave another message. Still nothing. So now I decided to go face to face and get my transcript. Guess what happens. She gets my info again and says it'll be at least 2 days. I had to run out the school. But we'll see what happens. Like I said, don't go to this school unless you have time and money to waste.
This school does not have their act together. From the moment I walked into the school I was mislead and lied to. The admissions rep told me he didn't know when a new session was starting so if I wanted to start I would need to do so the next day. He also lied about the hrs.
The school is always out of supplies needed to practice and the classes are packed with students and not enough equipment to practice with for the amount of people. The list just goes on and on..I wish I decided on another school.
I went into the school because I was told they had a PTA program. When I visited with the admissions representative, I found out that they don't have the PTA program yet.
The guy had no regard for me or my time and was just trying to get me to enroll into a Patient care or medical assisting program for around $20 thousand dollars, and these programs are just diplomas. I enrolled thinking I could move into the PTA program and that is not the case.
I wish I would have known that you can't borrow endless amounts of money to go to school. I would not waste my time witha diploma for that price,especially because the jobs you can get after these programs only pay $7 -$9 an hour.
