"Do Not attend this school!!! Other colleges do not accept their credits even though they lied to me and told me Id be able to transfer to USF which I wasnt and most jobs dont even recognize it as a legit degree. Do yourself a favor and save your time and money"

"Very understandable classes regardless of level of education, which was very helpful for me having only a GED. Instructors are knowledgeable and easy to understand. Very happy I took the time to research this school and highly recommend it. I am excited to start a career after I graduate."

"I have only been in this school 3 weeks and its HELL! From orientation and not receiving a schedule because they didn't receive my diploma, to starting the acutal orientation 25 mins late. I was told it would take two hours so I planned to work after. It took 4. That day our scrubs were issued. Shocker they were the wrong size. Luckily they had my size on campus to give me. 3 of the 4 of my "professors" are good teachers. The other I've had issues with since day one. she has made comments like "oh if I miss anyone on grading my bad just email me". So I received a 0 for participation one day so I send her an email to find out why . What do you know no response so I go hunt her down the next day she acknowledges that I emailed her and didn't respond !Mind you there is no chance for interaction in the class because she only plays 4th grade math Youtube videos then issues homework. Well anyways, she then the same day tells another student I was bitching at her. 1) don't talk about my business to another student and 2) you are not professional at all for speaking like this. So I go to speak to the director of education who also does not want to help me and chewed me out. I just want to know what I am doing wrong. Next step is the dean on Monday and I hope he helps or ill be finding another school. I WOULD NOT RECCOMMEND THIS SCHOOL TO ANYONE. SAVE YOUR MONEY. vent over. made me feel better."

"This school is terrible! All they care about is the money. Especially Tampa campus. No one cares about the students or their lives. Crazy workload. reasonable teachers. Extremely expensive just save your time and money. They tell you what you want to hear in the beginning dont believe none of it! Its all lies. If you have a job and family then good luck! This program is designed for people with no lives family or job who has 50k to blow and not even receive a good education. They made me take pre-algebra when I took that in like the 6th grade. This school is a joke and the staff are worse."

"Worst school ever. Had 3 different program directors during my time there and sometimes didn't even have a teacher at all. All this school did for me was make me look like an incompetent fool when I went to clinicals and now I'm stuck with over $20,000 in student loans for NOTHING!"

"I attended Southwest Florida college back in 05-06. I asked for the instructors credentials at the time I attended those courses. I was told that they could not give out that information and the current dean is very rude and unprofessional along with the staff. I am postings this review so others don't waste their time or their money."

"This school is strictly out for money!!!! I attended the Tampa campus and I found the admissions staff and director to be quite rude. They put you through a ton of loop holes to get an answer for something and it seems that everybody has a different answer for the same question. I havent been there a year and I've seen at least five teachers leave. I wouldn't recommend this school to.anyone youre better off going to a junior college bc swfc is wayyyyy overpriced"
