CP - 12/11/2019
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019
"I really enjoyed my time with Florida Institute of Technology. The course work was not too challenging or overbearing if you are willing to do the work. I balanced a full time course load while working full time. I did the online applied psychology BA program. They offer a great military discount and they accepted almost all of my transfer credits! The textbooks and lectures really taught me a lot. I also got to meet and learn from some awesome professors with real world experience. I would recommend this school to others!"

"The education is pretty good. The faculty is nice and they are understanding of a part-time student. But I will admit - I HATE the parking situation. Never have I experienced such a bad time parking. They sell parking spaces for $100, and will ticket you no matter the situation. If you don't put your sticker on your car right - ticket. If you tape the sticker to your car instead of sticking it - ticket. If you can't find a parking spot and are going to be late for a major presentation or exam - ticket. And then they are jerks when you file the paperwork to have your ticket reviewed. If you ask them what they are going to do about the parking situation, they will literally shrug and say "nothing. You should just come earlier" even if you already spend an hour looking for a spot. I seriously think the parking security have a quota and they make thousands in parking tickets from being stupid."

"Attending Florida Institute of Technology has prepared me for my career in more ways than one. The College of Aeronautics there offers a group of professors that come from all types of careers in the aviation industry. In all, I would recommend this college if you are interested in a career in aviation."

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015
"I researched and asked advise from business people who hire MBA grads before choosing Florida Tech. The University Alliance is made up of top tier schools. Negative reviews I am reading are all from students who impress me as having struggled academically; who may have been looking at an easy path to a degree. Complaints that advisers did not respond are misleading. Once you are enrolled the admission advisers are out of the picture and will direct you to contact you professors directly. Florida Tech is not easy. It is hard; demanding. But I felt supported at all times by the professors. They responded quickly to questions. may of my classmates were active duty military officers, a great group of men and women who over the years I've come to know as thoughtful and intelligent. When my employer ended tuition reimbursement the school helped me with a payment program that did not involve any government program or loans. The university just wanted to help me graduate. If you are looking for easy, keep looking. If you are looking for substance look into Florida Tech."

Disappointed. - 3/30/2017
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2017
"I am incredibly disappointed with this school. They are inflexible and irrational. There are several schools here and it is unclear as to which one to log into and who to call for help. Then when you finally get in touch with the right person after you have been trying they ask "why didn't you call us?" "Sorry, I am unable (aka unwilling) to help." They don't care how hard you are struggling trying to make ends meet, how much you paid for a class, or how difficult it is for you to find a time to take the class. If you make one mistake (meaning I can't figure out how to log in) they charge you. It makes no sense that an online school would not be supportive of a lifestyle that requires an online school."

"Fantastic resources and a great staff. Florida Tech is a wonderful school for online courses. The professors were hit or miss, but those who were good were very good. I would definitely recommend the school to anyone seeking a good option for distance learning."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016
"The BA in psychology program is no joke. You *will* need to be organized, a motivated self learner, and learn to navigate online systems quickly if doing online coursework. Don't neglect learning the library. Watch the silly intro videos and do the exercises. You *will* use all of that info for every single class. Their library is a thing of beauty, by the way, and you keep access after graduating. Read the syllabus and ask questions, especially if your'e online. All but 2 of my instructors were stellar. I mean, knock your socks off good teachers. The two, we had... Creative differences that could have been avoided had I not dug my heels in quite so hard. Overall, this was a wonderful experience and the degree landed me a job that I would have never imagined being able to get a month after graduating. A tip you should hold close to is pay attention, commit, and push interaction on discussion boards. Make sure to do every single one and post to at least 2 over the minimum requirement for peer responses - Add something to the convo or ask a question. Those points are invaluable in the end. Seriously."

"Great school with diverse minds. A small school that is Abet accredited with faculty that is easily approachable is golden and that is what Florida Institute of Technology offers the average mind that works through the doors before the mind is transformed."

"Florida Tech is one of the best schools in the state and the nation. There are so many degrees and opportunities there, and so many wonderful professors who care about you and want you to succeed. I loved my experience there and it really helped me toward my goals. I will soon be attending graduate school thanks to some of my awesome professors."

Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 1988
"Did Master's program at Orlando extension campus. Heavy but relevant work load. Instructors mostly PhDs working in the field and far more interesting and accessible than strictly academicians. MS in HRM is so close to MBA that I could have done MBA with two more courses. I felt as if I mattered, the school cared, and that it was money well spent. Each class (I took two per quarter) met for 4 hours once a week, a long time after a work day, but....!"
