Student & Graduate Reviews (91)
They are not about helping students. I work for FCC for about 2 yrs. I thought it was a school that cared at first. I was so wrong. We are forced to make 240 calls a day, give them 3 personal developed referrals, make 5 appts everyday and at least 1 enrollment a day. We have audio and visual in our office, which means no privacy at all. After you enroll a student and call them every 2 days until they are in class for 2 wks, then they don't care anymore because at that point they recieved the funding.
They want us to fill the programs and it doesnt matter if its good for the student or not. The amount of these programs are thru the roof and your left with a loan, 20k and up, leaving there and hope to get a job making $*. an hour. They want us to re-enroll students in other programs when they are finished. I hate that place and ish I can find another job. I dont enroll like I did in the past becauase I know better now. Im sure they will let me go soon because of low enrollments. The school is all about the money, not about the student.
When reading the reviews it makes me wonder on the ones that were negative what happened. There is so much to offer at FCC. The class sizes are small you have some faculty that have been there for three years where if they left they could make at least 4 times the amount they are making there. There are physicians that have come here and have stated they would only hire students from this school. The career services has gone through wonderful changes where the placement from extern to full time is amazing and this is placing students with only the year of experience that they have received here. The pass rate for certain programs for certification is at a all time high.
There is a billing instructor there that with the help of the school has started a mentoring program. This is where students are a liason between the faculty and students. The school has revamped the classrooms where they are more up to date both in the IT classrooms and the MAT classrooms. They have a wonderful PTA (physical therapy assistant) program along with a PCT (patient care technician) program. Don't get me wrong for the Billing and Coding Program and the Medical Assistant Technician program in the beginning the classes can be upto 30 students in the classroom but once you go to your core classes you might have 11 in the class to one teacher. The quality of the instructors has increased greatly sense 9 months ago and the nice thing is that you see more happy faces. I think if you give the school a chance then you will be suprised what you might get. I just want you to think about this when you come here it is better to be a leader than a follower. In leading you will make a difference. There are those who are never happy with anything and there are those who sabotage themselves and try to bring others down with them because they have always been told that they would never make anything of themselves. I will let you know that there is enough instructors here that will build you up and you will succed. I found that I am stronger of a person now sense I was at FCC then I have been in a long time.

I am a student at the Brandon/Riverview campus and I absolutely love it here. Professor Alexander is excellent and truly is an asset to the campus. The other instructors believe in what they teach and it shows. Career services has helped out a lot and I am well on my way to a career in IT. Special thanks to Alexander, Mr. Voightman, Ms Hill, and Mr Lim.J
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.
PLEASE PLEASE EXPLAIN I JUST GOT ADMISSION TODAY OCTOBER 18, 2010 NOW I AM READING ALL THIS. PLEASE LET ME KNOW ANYBODY HONESTLY REAL PERSON NOT SOMEONE TRYING TO COVER THEIR FAULT. IS THIS COLLEGE GOOD OR BAD WILL I GRADUATE AND DO BETTER IN LIFE, I AM MARRIED AND HAS A CHILD. PLEASE SOMEBODY TRUE PERSON HELP ME DECIDE SHOULD I GO TO THIS FCC. THANKS!
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.
