"Don’t waste your money. I was told I was enrolled in school with the Purple Heart waiver program just to find that the school can’t accept it and that they had drained whatever was left in my GI bill account and Hoped to use my pell grant money after that ran out. I received a bill from the VA stating the school had accepted more than they were entitled to because they sucked that account dry, and now I’m paying the bill. They refuse to help me figure out the problem and have been avoiding me for months. This is not my first college experience; I have two prior degrees and only enrolled to help bolster up my marketability. I’m coming out with debt, no degree and a lot of headaches. Some of their staff will tell you that it’s a horrible school and that they know they’re doing wrong by their students. Even without the financial issues, the education is horrible. You’re pretty much on your own."

"I attended the school recommended by a family friend, I should’ve payed attention to the reviews and should’ve done some more research about the school, they gave me false information when I had the consultation, they made it seem like everything was going to be easy and simple. But even some of the classes were lacking. The degree that I received from them it’s basically useless. PLEASE RESEARCH BEFORE ATTENDING THIS SCHOOL."

"I really wish I had paid better attention to the poor reviews. After being told that after I graduated I would be assisted in finding employment for Medical Billing & Coding and make great money! I just wanted to better myself! WRONG! After graduated it was as though I didn't exist. I had to reach out to find who was suppose to be assisting me only to be sent links for jobs on indeed, like I hadn't applied to ALL of those! I was also told that I should not apply for Medical Billing & Coding jobs, but entry level..$10.00-$12.00 /hr jobs! THAT IS NOT WHAT SIGNED UP FOR! I was then offered the opportunity to further my education, giving me a better stance for employment by going back in for my associates degree. Are you kidding me?! Not only am I now in debt in student loans for a skill that I can't even find employment for but the calls don't stop! They keep calling me, even on my sons phone, trying to get me to sign up and go into even more debt. The student loan I now have to pay back is taking food off my table! Please beware of this "school" . Pay attention to the negative reviews."

"I graduated from this college in 2018 with a Criminal Justice degree. The people in the career service told me once I’m done they were going to help me get a job and send my resume to different law agencies and law firms, or help me get a paid internship. Well they lied to me because all they did was given me a job that had nothing to do with Criminal Justice and sent me on my way. It’s wrong to do that because you told me that you were going to help me and make sure that I was going to get a job but nope they just lied.Than like a week later they will call saying hello have you found a job yet and when you tell them no they will just sit there and say okay well best of luck to you and hang up. Maybe I should give the Department of Education a call because they lack the compassion for their students education and not just worry about the money!!"

"After graduation I was told I would not receive my degree in the school logo frame book because I was not able to attend my formal graduation. Poor service. I'm almost 100 percent sure I'm paying for that book in my tuition. Shame on you FTC. Dirty and dishonest."

"IN reviewing financial status regarding loan information - I give FTC a BIG ZERO!!!!!! They had me owing $10,000 and wouldn't explain where this was coming from. I had no idea about the load information because they did not give me that to me, nor increase in tuition nor the fact that there is a $50/class technology fee. They SUX at communication. I did not continue due to their unprofessional conduct of communication. I paid almost $1900/class for an Associates' which is RIDICULOUS!!!!!! BEWARE. Check your contract and don't sign anything without knowing otherwise come graduation they've got you by the "balls" and you're stuck with a large loan amount. NEVER again."

"After being out of school for almost 20 years. I can't believe I'm back but from the beginning with my initial sign up to get back in school everyone made it very easy. After my first month I did want to quite but with the emails I get from the admissions staff from our program director and even from the professors help encourage me everyday to come back. Now that I am half way there I want to see it to the end and I thank all the amazing staff and AMAZING new friends that I also gained."

"I really enjoyed my time at FTC College Orlando. The professors there are really helpful and patient and are always there when you need them. My teachers were always responsive in a timely manner, no matter if it came to turning in homework or if I had questions with my financial aid. They make sure you're always feeling important and don't leave you left in the dry. I would recommend this school to any of my friends and family and i'm glad my aunt and my cousin told me to come here because they also graduated from FTC Orlando."
