"I disagree on how the Corporate office denied me on rewriting my loan to a lower amount. I was current with my payments all the way up to the time of graduation. Given the current situation of my living arrangements I found myself in a bad situation which I spoke to financial services about. Which had me too send a email to Corporate for a rewrite and was denied. I am finding my self falling behind in my payments. I asked only for six month rewrite. Very disappointed!"

"I started off at FCC not knowing what I wanted to do in life. Since graduating I have not only had a decently successful career as a Medical Assistant. What is most important to me is that I was able to take the skills learned at FCC and be able to come back to FCC and work as an instructor as well as work as an education consultant for other institutions. Nothing has been more rewarding than taking my learned skills and being able to pass them on to other students. If it weren't for FCC I'd still be working late nights as a bartender"

"I definitely do not regret attending and graduating from FCC. The teachers all care about their students and do not hesitate on working hands on. I definitely appreciate the personal experiences in the actual field that they are able to bring into the classroom as a guide for the students as well also understanding that most of these students have full time jobs and a life of their own to manage on top of going to school full time. This has opened doors to the career I have built up until now. Once I graduated, I got my first job at MD Now Urgent Care as a front desk until I eventually passed my certification for CMA. I worked for MD Now for 2 years and I eventually moved onto medical billing and currently working on my coding certification. My salary has increased tremendously since graduating, and it will only get better from here. I highly recommend FCC as the first steppingstone to bring you to your highest goals and career achievements as it has done for me."

"There are two people in the whole school who were the greatest at helping and having patience with the students including me and that is Ms Vanessa Roger's and Ms Hall. Ms Roger's is one of the medical assistant instructors who work really hard at FCC"

"I enjoy everything this program has to offer. My teacher is a huge help in class and outside of class when it comes to assignments and getting us to where we need to be. She pushes us to our full potential and never expects us talking down on ourselves."

"I started this course not knowing anything but as it was going it was a great experience with teachers and students overall I really loved it and would recommend 10/10 and especially with career services they really help with the whole process off everything from paying for tuition getting you ready for the real experience."

"All I can’t say is this school is horrible horrible. I went there since January finished August. They failed to find me a job. Well let me fixed that I told them I only wanted to go to a cardiologist office they send me to pain management. I told them I had a surgery coming up they didn’t tell the office I told the office they said they don’t care the office and the school made me choose between my children and job or school when the office told me that I walked out because no one tell me my kids come after a job that will replace you in 2 min. The teacher was quitting left and right. One of them told all the students that the school was taking out money which now I see why. I can’t I have more stuff on them as I was a class ambassador tea for days they treat you like garbage if you a ambassador and don’t do something some that work there get pay to do. They embarrassed they girl in front off all get ambassadors classmates bad"

"This is a PREDATORY FOR-PROFIT place! Not only is the career services completely unqualified for what they do, they don't give more than a sack of trash for students' privacies. Upon being assigned an externship site, I was given a sheet of paper with five (5) other students' personal contact information on it. My extern site was a cannabis clinic that had no doctor on site Sunday through Friday, where the owner would come in the morning, unlock the front door, and leave the externing students alone in the office for the entirety of the day doing absolutely nothing. The other two students with me just blasted music, watched Netflix, ordered food, and smoked weed. This place makes empty promises of helping students find a job after finishing only to reel you in so they can fill out the FAFSA application FOR you and drop a $20,000 pile of debt on your credit. What do you get for that $20k? A cheap kindle ($80) with three textbooks preloaded on it (you'll only use one) and a tiny black bag full of the absolute garbage quality stethoscope and BP cuff set that even a child would know that's some cheap "materials", and finally, the most bottom-of-the-barrel quality scrubs that (God forbid you're anything larger than a medium or need a different sized shirt from the pants) feel like you've just put a cardboard paper outfit on. Take your time, sanity, and money elsewhere like an actual college that isn't going to crap all over you and relentlessly call and email you all hours of the day."

"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!!"

"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?."

"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."

"The best advice I can give anyone looking into this school is to run and don't look back. I came to Florida career college to better my education and have a successful future . I was enrolled from one day to another and they made everything very easy. After some research and realizing their M.A.T program was going to cost me 21,000 something I decided it was going to cost me too much money for a technical profession. I attended this school for two days after I enrolled. First of all the teacher never showed up to class. We had two different substitutes both days. On the third day I decided to unenroll and explore my options before financial aid went through. The students that were already in this school told me it wasn't worth it but they were in school because it had already been past 30 days. When I came in to un-eroll they made it very difficult said they wouldn't consider taking me back if I wanted to come back and when it was time to speak to the director he avoided me and then yelled at me and told me he was disappointed in me took the materials they gave me and walked away. I felt very disrespected ."
