J - 3/18/2019
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018
"I did My bachelors degree program at the school. And two of my main classes they did not offer me which is business law and business communication. I cannot find a job nowhere when I do interview companies ask me how could they not give you two of the most important classes that have to do with business. Im so pissed I feel Rob use taking advantage of thats the worst school I ever attended. I have loans to pay back and no job offer to pay back my loans meanwhile they pocket all my money and I still cant find a job."

Someone who cares - 3/17/2019
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2019
"Would not ever recommend this school. Initially, the staff and professors were amazing- bottom line you are going to repay a loan for many years to come with nothing to back up your education with - because it will not be recognized by companies in the community. You get LIED to all the time and pacified and discarded and ignored."

Degree: Barbering
Graduation Year: 2018
"I attended the Master Barber program at FTC in DeLand, FL. My instructor was Mr. S. I'm a retired veteran and have attended school most of my career in the military. Mr. S. connected with us as the students on a personal level and made us feel like his friend instead of the usual teacher/student relationship. I felt more comfortable around him and this made it easier to learn and ask for help when I needed it. He taught the curriculum in a way that helped us all understand it at different levels (no matter what level of education we had). I've only been out of school for about a year but am already a owner of a shop and thanks to him I learned the necessities necessary to be a Master Barber and owner of a shop who passed his state inspection of my shop with no write-ups or incidents. I truly appreciate his guidance, friendship, mentorship, and realistic points of view and conversation. He still to this day keeps in touch with me to check on me and see how I am doing. On a side note, I had never cut hair before attending school so I am truly thankful for him because he taught me the necessary skills to make it on my own."

Degree: Cosmetology
Graduation Year: 2017
"I attended FTC in Kissimmee.I graduated the cosmetology program.I would never recommend this school.The professors are disorganized.They constantly lost the students' paperwork.If they didn't like a subject, we were told to teach ourselves.Many days were spent listening to the professors discuss unrelated topics.The professors were constantly late from breaks. Now that I am a hairstylist, I'm discovering most of what I was taught is wrong.If the professor didn't know how to do something or was disinterested, they asked another student to teach the class.The professors talked negatively about other faculty and students.Students in my class had to transfer to another school because they couldn't understand Spanish, and all of the professors taught their lessons in spanish.If we were absent from class, the professors insisted we provide a reason.I truly regret coming here."

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2018
"I have went to this college and it has be great the half of the time that I was there. They were supportive and helpful in letting you succeed until they just did not want to have anything to do with you at the end. The career services sent me to two medical sites to do my externship and I have learned nothing. Those sites were only wanting to do the work that they wanted to do and not help you learn anything about their system. I should have spoke up, but I was lost to begin with and everyone doing their jobs that I felt that I shouldn't bother them. Think thoroughly before attending this college and if you do, keep on going until the end. If you keep withdrawing from classes, then they don't want nothing to do with you."

Degree: Medical Billing & Coding
Graduation Year: 2012
"I have done very well after graduating from FTC, but this is the exception, not the norm. Most of my classmates have either disappeared or do not work in the field (Medical Coding). I did not find the career assistance to be helpful even in the slightest. I did not receive one referral, interview or even a lead from career assistance. When you graduate from here you are on your own. I also had one instructor who was clearly out of her depth on the subject of health insurance. Having been in the field for over four years now, I am still irritated at the complete lack of guidance on one of the most important aspects of medical billing and coding. But the one thing that really demonstrates exactly how much FTC cares about you, the item that identifies exactly where you as alumni stand, is that I get calls about three times a year asking me if I am interested in attending their Medical Billing and Coding Program. I must tell the poor telemarketing sap that I graduated from the course. Really disheartening to get those calls. That being said, if you are considering medical coding as a career I urge you to pursue it and get your CPC or CCS certification. The field is expanding and opportunities abound!"

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2015
"The online program is easy and informative with most of the instructors/professors being very good with outstanding knowledge. Now the staff for this school is a complete different story! The Orlando Campus is one of the worst school staff I could imagine for online students. FASFA payments are never delivered to the student nearly on time, you can NEVER make contact with anybody at the school TO INCLUDE the Dean and the "open door policy". The only way I was able to get anything done administratively at this school was to make a complaint through the VA which forced a response from them. They are horrible to get any transcript or information after leaving the school, this school is a hands down nightmare and I would highly recommend not even looking in their direction, go across the street to Kaplan College."
