Student & Graduate Reviews

"FSCJ's administration for the nursing program is absolutely horrible, and I felt entirely undervalued as a student. Students are not respected and taken seriously. I would not recommend coming to FSCJ for any program, but as a nursing student, I can verify that the administrators and staff cause more stress than the actual nursing exams cause."

"This school is awful from it's customer service to information it puts out. It seems like they have ONE phone tree for anything and everything you need. You wait on hold for absurd amounts of time (30 minutes to almost an hour). No one seems to know any answers to your questions and always pawn you off on another person or department. I originally began my admissions in June 2017, I couldn't start until spring 2018 because they lost my application, never processed my transcripts, and never bothered to email me. I would call every day and no one could assist with my lost transcripts. They were mysteriously found in a "folder" where transcripts can't be matched to students who applied for admission after I threatened to file a complaint with the Department of Education. Fast forward to applying for the nursing program and I can't! Their admission applications are insane and so limited in options. I can't roll in person since I am out of state until the fall, so every form of help has been limited to phone or email. FSCJ IS THE WORST SCHOOL TO GO. SAVE YOUR TIME, ENERGY, AND MONEY!!!! Poorest customer service, rude counselors, and inept phone system."

"I think the classes are good at FSCJ but they are way overprices. I have moved a lot over the past few years and attended many colleges but this one is by far the most expensive. If I had the ability to attend a different community college I would. Normally people go to community college first because they want to save money and it is less expensive. This is not the case with FSCJ. I paid for two 3 credit hour classes that were $700.65 without tax. To me this is just absolutely ridiculous. No community college should be as expensive as a university. Also, I spoke with an advisor and they told me to take the wrong classes. Now I am set back an extra semester. Most of the people on the administrative staff give you different answers to the same questions. After leaving a meeting with an advisor some of the information I was told did not sit well with me. So I called to ask if the information I was given was correct and was informed it was not. I was also told I was not eligible to receive financial aid which was also inaccurate. When I call the school I am almost alway on hold for at least 35 minutes. It is very agitating to be mislead and ill-informed. I took summer classes to get ahead and now I am behind because I was told to take the wrong classes. I really do feel like the office administration needs to work on being on the same page and having accurate information. Although I am fed up with administrate I can say once enrolled I do like my classes and most of my teachers so far."

"I love FSCJ don't get me wrong. But the advisors had me taking classes that I didn't have to take for the Nursing program. I ended up takin my sciences last (Microbo, Anatomy 1 &2, Chemistry, Nutrition) I passed all except Microbio. The first time I had withdraw and the second time I made an 68.7 but my Professor wouldn't round my grade to an C. So I had to appeal which I did not win (of course their gonna take up for their own) so now i'm stuck having to take it a 3rd time and now I have to pay out of pocket (1614.08 plus books) so around $1800 that I don't HAVE. i'm so pissed because I could have been in the RN program 2 semesters ago, but instead i'm looking for a school I can get into for the RN program."

"The program was great although demanding but changes were made constantly throughout the program which I thought was unfair. I say this because ypu go into the program with certain criteria and I feel that should be held up throughout. Changes should affect new students coming in not ones that are currently in. The instructors for the most part were great. Very helpful. The financial department needs work and is improving. Overall my good outweighed my bad and I would seek another degree"
