"FCC is a beautiful college to attend. The staff and teachers are very courteous and helpful. My instructor Miss Bernat is amazing, very knowledgeable and always there to help. Thank you Miss B. The support I received and is still receiving from career services department is outstanding! Miss Keila Sanchez is amazing she made sure I have a site to do my externship and that the site is hiring. Thank you Keila. I’m very satisfied with my overall experience with FCC. FCC has open the doors for many opportunities not only as a Medical Assistant but other medical careers. A very special thank you to Tyrone Jenkins who admitted me and gave me a head start. Thank you FCC!!"

"I am in communication with a lawyer over this schools deceptive recruitment tactics now. More half of what I was told during my enrollment process was just to quickly get me to sign tuition paperwork. Career services is over worked to the point that they dont care. All departments have quotas to meet and that is evident in everything from enrollment to graduation. I signed paperwork for tampas billing and coding course work but midway through classes a staff member said my class isn't that. We were signed up for medical front office... as in reception? What? So midway through the program and I have gotten micro lessons in how to do some coding but the main focus is to prepare the class to be an overly knowledgable receptionist. When I did extern I found out I was even properly prepared for that though. On location there was a medical student and she was better at the things I was taught and even though she was supposed to be learning how to be a medical assistant. Again, career services isn't going to help anyone like recruitment leads you to believe. They also dont screen students at all and so one of my classmates was a felon and said that wasn't discussed during enrollment at all... now had it been an ethical person would have told them they should find another field because this person's criminal record would definitely bar them from working in most medical offices. My class had more then one person who didnt even know how to turn a computer on let alone use software to check patients in. The icing on the cake is that someone in career services took my email and sent me messages promising to help fix my credit months after I was done."

"WORST school ever. staff seems to be clueless when asked a simple question. not only do these people using you to take away your money; they trick you into thinking they’ll help you in any need or question throughout your time there. the representatives will gladly receive you in the beginning and that’ll be the last time you’ll hear from them. career services has to be the worst of my experience here; career services claim to help you after you’re done with the program but these people suck at communicating with their students. i was in the MAT program and in order to graduate you need to do 180 hours in your externship site. i did as told and once i was done with my hours i was told that they had some issues putting in my hours into their system, so as a result i had to go back to my externship site TWICE. a total of almost 3 months in my externship site, when i could’ve been done in less than a month. financial aid doesn’t help either, i asked them a simple question regarding my loan and they couldn’t even give me a clear answer. a little side note: i heard of this school because of my step-mom. she graduated there in 2017. when i received my diploma i couldn’t help but notice how different my diploma looked compared to hers. it’s a total downgrade, the paper is so thin and my diploma has only one signature from the registrar? while hers had all the signatures from the head of fcc. i might be nit picking here but with the huge a mount of money you pay for the program they could’ve atleast gave me a legit looking diploma lol."

"This school is a complete scam! Don't waste your money! I graduated in 2005 and still unable to find a job as a medical assistant. They never taught me phlebotomy!! Also, they have an English class but not a Spanish class. I asked the Dean to offer Spanish classes for people like me who can’t speak Spanish, but he refused to help! Go to Miami Dade College instead!!! They offer the exact same certifications but at a much lower price! MDC also offers a class called: "Conversational Spanish for the Healthcare Professional." I’m still paying for the tuition from Florida Career College!! It cost you about $20,000 for a one year certification at FCC. Save yourself from tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt!! Go to MDC!!"

"I attended at Lauderdale Lakes location. I'm a Honor student with 3.5GPA. No help with finding a job after graduation. I been on tons of interviews and still no hired. The employers looking for candidates with more experience and bilingual. They screw me on externship. Did my duty but no hired because I wasnt bilingual. The manager. At my site told me that grad service know she request for an MA that bilingual but they sent me to the site anyways. Im glad I gain some experience but I was looking forward as being in my career as a MA by now. It been almost 3yrs w/o a job. I have to pay for student loans and have 3 kids who need my support. Worse school ever. I dont recommend this school to no one. They fail me badly?."

The teachers are thorough helpful but you have to want to learn and be in class. Your education is what you make it work hard study and show up you can make it here"

"This place is AWFUL.... When i first applied to FCC it was for web design as advertised on their 2009 schedule flier. A month before starting the course was no longer available. So i decided to take the Network Engineering course. At first it was running pretty smoothly then after the 2nd semester it became pretty sour. I was stuck with a handful of instructors that has some serious emotional issues to the point that it become somewhat scary. Most of the time they had absolutely no idea what they were teaching and we'd be either lost or wondering WTH is going on with these guys. The only thing good about this place is that i made alot of good friends there. The absolute bad thing is that i'm stuck with a debt i can't pay back...a degree that's worth less than a Venezuelan dollar and a rep of laughably being a former student of FCC....do yourself a huge favor and go to your county's community college and recieve your education there..."

They will tell you everything you want to hear to get you there and once youre there the staff changed every other week. This place needs to be sued and CLOSED PERMANENTLY!

"Choose another college. This one will lie to you just to get you in the door. We had 4 different teachers within the first 3 months and it wasn't because of MOD change. Our last teacher was on such a power trip you couldn't even ask a question in the class you are paying 25,000 for. Terrible school. Don't waste your time or money ."

"I know there are a lot of bad reviews below but I can guarantee that they are either from upset students that never graduated or put in the work to graduate. Staff is friendly, helpful and they all care about your well being. My admissions advisor is Miss Rose, she is the sweetest person in the world, really cares about all her students and will go above and beyond to help you. If it wasn't for her I would still be struggling. If you find yourself struggling to pay your Bill's, making minimum wage, no highschool diploma or you are just tired of not feeling like you are worth anything please go see Miss Rose and let her help you change your life. I just graduated with my high school diploma and HVAC certifications and I am already working in my career. Thank you FCC, Miss Rose, Ms. Aida in financial aid, Mr. Bean and all the instructors and career services Julissa for all your help. If you are serious about changing your life around and you are going to put in the work go to FCC"

"This is the worst school EVER!There were 2 classes in which I did not have a teacher. For one of those classes, the program director was the teacher. Needless to say, she was never in the class because she had other things to do. When it comes to teachers theres a revolving door. I went back to get my transcript and service log and they didnt have any of my services on file. CHOOSE A BETTER SCHOOL! A HUGE WASTE OF MONEY AND I WISH I HAD NEVER GONE HERE!!!"

"In the past 9 months we had a prestige instructor from day one up until the instructor left without notice. We had three changes of instructors since the main one left. Now I don't see any motivation or anything this program offers for a job. When I ask for any available jobs pertaining the certification program, all I get is words and no action. Tells you will get you a job and nothing. What a complete utter waste of time and money. The next school I will look into the graduation rate percentage and I will make sure it will give me the tools I need to get into the field. This campus needs to close soon. Some of the staff members dress very eccentric inappropriate, and complain why sexual harassment occurs? Common sense dress professionally, not to show legs or any part of the body. Never again I'll use my benefits on something like this."
