Usually the competition, students who do not honor their financial responsibility and have consequences they dont like..students that did not get along with an instructor because they wanted the degree handed down to them. X employees that were fired or could not handle the pressure of everyday work and quit. My advice- go to the school you are thinking of enrolling in, talk to the instructors and the current students there. Listen to your gut instinct. Its nothing new that the internet is full of fraud so why would you put so much faith on a review that's on here.

I recently graduated from this school and still do not have a job in the field i went for which was medical billing and coding. I can't get my diploma from them because they say you can't get it if you owe any money to them what kind of crap is that. the career services was no help at all only with putting together a resume but for finding u a job no way. and it gets worse now i have theses student loans to pay back and only working at a minimum wage job part time which barely pays my bills i thought i was better myself instead i just got myself in debt because of this i really wish i didn't listen to that recruiter.

Graduation Year: 2011

This school is alot better then everest ... there has been soo many people coming from that school because they are not a good school at all!!

Fcc is a great school, I have been attending this school for a few mths now and I really enjoy this school, when I can to this school i didnt have a high school dip or ged but this school has a test that you can take which is quite easy it you passed the 7th grade.. well after i had taken this test and passed the new mod was too start in 4 days by the time it was time to start I had recieved everything I needed.

Any school that you attend is going to be costly you cant expect everything in your life to cost hardly anything..if you actually added up your books your supplys the dummies that you use the uniforms and etc it pretty much equals out to the money to go to school and its really sad how people can bash a school for the money if it wasnt for these kinda schools people like us that couldnt go to college or graduate from high school what kind of jobs are really out there for us?

These schools re out to help you some are going to cost more or less then others but you cant just hate a school because you get one bad teacher or whatever... I think this is a great school and with us having a new dean ms. w. which i find a wonderful teacher and also some new teachers mrs.r. ms.B.! you def have to come down and check us out cause when you leave I bet your gonna love it!

Few years ago I had attended Florida Career College, while I was a student there things were going fine, I had earned my A's and B's, made the President List a few times also made the perfect attendance list for I did not miss one day of class. At the time I had enrolled in the Medical Billing and Coding course.

Things started going wrong as graduation was approching, the Career Services had set me up for interviews that were not related to Medical Billing and Coding, I had taken the initiative and spoke to the Career Services admistrator at the time and had asked her as of why the interviews were not related to what I had went to school for I had also told her that I was not going to the interviews the reply to that one was that I had to for it would make the school look bad I told her that was not my concern for they should have kept there word.

So as you guessed I was not able to pursue my so called new career, I was the one that had set my interviews with potential employers, I would pass the interviews but did not get the jobs for the simple and idiotic reason that Florida Career College held my diploma hostage and all for the insane reason that this "SMART BRAINS PEOPLE" have the idiotic idea that if the student DO NOT FINISH PAYING the out of pocket portion of the tuition which they call "ECLIPSE" the student is not entitled to the diploma. This is the most insane, dumb, and a-- backwards excuse I had ever heard.

Few months after I had graduated Florida Career College was on the news, in the news the reporter stated that Florida Career College was under Federal investigation for mishandleling Federal Grants and Funds. If you are thinking of attending this bad school my advice to you is to please rethink, and if a recruiter ever get in contact with you from Florida Career College just hang up do not allow them to fill your head with so much trash and empty words for it's a scam all they worry about is about the Federal Grants, Funds, your money out of pocket, and the Private loans.

The logo that they use "The College That Cares" it is misleading, yes they do care they care about the money that comes from you, your parents, private lenders and of course from the Government.

graduated from this piece of crap school. Mind you with an A.S. degree in MOA no one has eva heard of the school especially people who are in the business of education. personally it was a big waste of my money. Now I sit here typing this review wishing I had done my research firsthand. The teachers really made a big difference and alot of the good ones have all left because of what the administration were promising students with no regards to their backgrounds financially,criminal, etc.... Just as long as they kept their jobs. Now what about the rest of us that are stuck with an enormous and unnessacary debt which by the way could have gone towards purchasing a home for my family. I hold a degree that is not working at all for my family.

Only one year, a lot of loands were requested in his name to Sallie Mae.At the end of the first year He due to sallie mae around $2o.ooo.oo Where went all that money?

"This institution was to be closed by the gobierno.Usa federal money on behalf of other" That's the problem. Now We are paying more than 25000.00 with interests.

My son could not continue studying and have to pay for everything. Try MDCC instead FCC.Much better

I WILL GET RIGHT TO THE POINT. THE TEACHERS DO NOT SHOW UP FOR 4 DAYS,COME BACK TO THE SCHOOL AND SAY YOU HAVE A TEST. THE GOOD TEACHERS THAT YOU ACTUALLY LEARN FROM THEY DO WRONG. ITS A FASHION SHOW, THEY MAKE ALL THESE PROMISES TO YOU BUT WHEN YOU GET THERE THEY DONT KNOW YOU OR HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THEY YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. SOME OF THE INSTRUCTORS DONT SHOW YOU ANYTHING BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT QUALIFIED IN THE AREA THAT THEY ARE TEACHING YOU. BASICALLY YOU ARE LEARNING FROM OTHER STUDENTS!!!!!

MONEY HUNGRY,INSENSITIVE, AND EVEN THOUGH I SPENT ALL THIS MONEY I DID NOT GET CRAP OUT OF IT.

I am not a student. I have no intrest in this school. I just want the Admissions Dept at West Palm Beach to leave me alone and stop the constant harrasing phone calls. They have been calling me for the past two weeks asking for a person I do not know. I have told them repeately they have a wrong number. Still the calls keep coming. Obviously someone gave them a wrong number to get rid of them, unfortunately it was mine.

What kind of a school is this if they are so hard up for students they hound strangers just because they have a phone number. How do I get out of their system? If I were looking for a school it certainly would not be this one. Very unprofessional.

Mostly when you call to find out information about the school they try to quickly persuade you into the school and try to enroll you quickly as possible. All the admissions care about is getting calls mostly telemarketing and some of the admissions will ask students for phone numbers so they can have a certain amount of calls a day. Think about telemarketing and trying to sell you crap!!

The Teachers I first started here when i was 18 around may of 2008 and well mostly when i went into the school some of the teachers were horrible. Some will just give you bookwork and won't even care they just sit around and earn a paycheck. In the computer repair program i had to learn the material myself. There are/were only two teachers for IT that i learned a lot from that really went ahead and taught me everything they knew so they can prepare me what was going to be up ahead Mauricio Gongora and Lazaro Diaz were the only IT teachers that really taught and were always on track. This depends on what teacher you get!!

Grades Its really funny that students can easily pass a class if you show up everyday and not do anything. You even get some bulls* diploma which pretty much is a piece of paper telling you came to school everyday for that specific module. Some teachers can help you when your in need give you some extra credit work or etc.. but mostly they are idiot students in the classroom and they come everyday to class and just pass. So basically i need to learn everything but the students come everyday do not learn anything but yet they pass?? wow dude not even real college works this way hahahha!!!

Schedules And Classes!! Okay there are some students when they entered in school do not know what they are going to be studying be prepared when you enroll for the IT program they will try to give you advance classes first and then give you basic classes last. Even though its the other way around for some students and especially teachers get really pissed off when students do not know anything get into advance classes. so the teacher has to waste time teaching students the basics before they get into the advanced and by the time they try to get into the advance stuff the module is almost over.

Materials and Equipment The equipment for IT is really and i mean really old!! some of it was not working at all or when had to share with 4 other people when the computers were not working correctly. If this is an IT school why the hell did it took so long to get new computers?? if this school says that they teach the students the current technology why the hell do they still have windows vista even though its supposed to be windows 7?. I don't understand how much money this school is being given but yet do not have proper equipment to work or equipment that students should have so they can do hands on. Where the hell is that money going to? i have the right to know because is my money!!! money that i don't even have!!!

Starting a Club!! The dean of the school is just one of those lazy people that you even realize your talking to a brick wall. Me and a friend of mine were trying to start a club it has been over 3 weeks when we first when in and talked to him about it. He kept telling us wait until Monday then Thursday,until the end of business Monday we have to wait a month which is bulls* because a club can get started after its approved but yet we have to wait a month!! yeah okay i quit!! so if your thinking about starting a club yeah good luck with that!!

This is only for IT i did however learned a lot try to learn put some effort into it and try to get whatever much possible out of it. A lot of people say that vocational school are garbage than a traditional college. But yet they have book smarts but not hands on. Yet i have both and experience who do you think knows more traditional college or a vocational school. to me it does not matter as long as you know your stuff and know how to do it. Then your life will be a lot easier its a fake school and not a real college but i learned a lot so the school being fake is not an excuse.

Overall i would not recommend it go to a real school learn, train or whatever you don't have to deal with so much bulls* from the school yes its expensive but i got a lot from it. so depends but i won't recommend it!!

Stay in school, get a descent education this school may look small and good but never trust the commercials nor never trust the smiles on their school website nor on TV!!

Hialeah Campus am enrolled in MIS might as well take it..
