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.
Went to the school with hopes of graduating and starting my career and the school closed completely down with no warning at all I had 2 classes left before I had to graduate.
Classes are a joke, most days sat there and did nothing. Information is out of date. Do not go here
Instructors were placed that were not qualified to teach. Financial aid was kept, and not returned to loan company before they closed school. Purposely kept funds thinking loan would be written off by loan company. Now have to get them to return funds. POC's don't return calls in refences to problems.
