Degree: Nursing

Honest review here. You get what you pay for. The administration is bad. My advisor made multiple mistakes postponing my graduation. You will call and they act confused and will tell you some way somehow you messed up. The school is cheap but the people that work there are trash. If you can afford a little extra TRUST me, go somewhere else. This is from a student who is actually doing well in class. The nursing school especially is awful.

3/5 of my professors are absolutely horrible. I've been unenrolled from my classes for seemingly no reason and had to get it resolved with admin. Janitors seem to think they're royalty here and love bossing students around for arbitrary reasons. Definitely would not recommend this heaping pile of garbage to anyone. It's definitely a cheap school and you can tell.

This school, just like the people from 5-6 years ago said, doesn't have great service when it comes to being admitted. First off, I've never been to a school that has sessions. That was new. It totally messed me up in terms of getting my pell grant and such. Now I'm waiting a month to get that...smh. The people are nice and all, but the communication is really bad. For me, I have had made about 20 phone calls about my "missing" transcript(had to pay a second time), when my pell grant is coming, why... Read More

Degree: Nursing

FSCJ faculty and administration make many mistakes, but place the blame of poor performance solely on the students. They refuse to look at their own mistakes, behavior, and misleading information as the possible reason their students may struggle. Speaking to them about your concerns is like screaming at a brick wall; nothing happens! To pass your classes, you MUST receive 80% average on exam grades, which comes out to be 640 out of 800 points. If you earn 639.9/800, there is absolutely no helping... Read More

Degree: EMT

The EMT and paramedic classes are poorly executed. EMT is 1 lecture day and 1 lab day but don't expect much in lab. If you have no prior medical experience, good luck cause they immediately start at it and you'll be behind confused. Paramedic is 1 day a week, lecture and lab combined. The rest you do at home yourself. They will tell you right out how many people drop out within the first couple weeks like it something to be proud of. If they didn't make it so stressful people wouldn't drop out. The... Read More

I should have listened when someone told me not to enroll here. It’s been the worst college experience I’ve ever had. I’m feeling so discouraged ready to give up on my degree. I should have known when they gave me the run around just to enroll. You are on your own at the school. Find another one to attend.

I previously received a Bachelors at Purdue and am currently taking classes at FSCJ. From the first day I began looking into this school, it was nothing but confusion, ignorance, complete disregard for students, and stupidity. First off, I couldn’t even tell you if I’m in a program or not. Because I should have many classes accounted for with my previous degree, my application was not as straightforward. I have talked to 6 advisors over the phone, the head of the radiation therapy program, admissions,... Read More

Degree: Architectural Engineering

Attended for the Engineering course as an affordable option and found out why it was affordable. Often there were no Professors for required credits for a year, and most of the Gen Eds that were forced were led by terrible professors. Had a history professor fail the whole class and the college had to change everyone's grades, had a Electrical Engineering Professor just dip for the whole semester and was unreachable, and then several Profs that don't even follow their own grading rubric and fail...

The worst school I ever been to. They do not help the out of state students. They DO NOT give out of state students any heads up on anything. They are very unorganized. If you come to this school and be an online student be prepared to be lost cause they cannot give you any information you need on time or in a timely manner.

This is a terrible school!!!! I regret wasting my life here. You're better off saving up for a more expensive college. The advisors will misinform you and hang up on you, ive been lied to multiple times. They can't admit to not knowing stuff they would rather give you false information. Dont go here

FSCJ ASN Program

Reviewed: 7/1/2022

Degree: Nursing

I heard that the FSCJ nursing program used to be exceptional in preparing its students for a career in nursing. Currently, this is not the case. There is a painstakingly obvious lack of communication and preparation between the professors and clinical instructors involved in the nursing program. For the similarly-formatted assignments assigned each term, each professor had different grading criteria that were not made explicitly clear due to the lack of communication. They also taught different signs/symptoms/clinical... Read More

I have been speaking with Student Records of FSCJ for months. My initial enrollment was Oct/2020 for their PTA program. My college education is from abroad so the Evaluation team has to validate my credits for the program. I have spoken with several academic advisors, all who say the Evaluations team of student records must validate my previous credits to be considered for my prereqs. The evaluation team (who by the way seems to be One Single Person for the entire institution) always tells me she... Read More

Degree: Human Services

I didn't have a good experience talking to an advisor. I inquired about the bachelor's degree in Human Services. I asked if it's an online program. They said they can't guarantee it's all online but it's advertised as being online. I don't live close to Jacksonville so this is potentially a problem. I tried applying today but the portal is saying my application can't be processed because I am applying for a term that has already started. I am clicking on the spring semester 2021 and it's November... Read More

Degree: Business Administration

FSCJ will scam you. Avoid at all costs - especially if you have financial aid needs. I originally attended another state University and I thought I knew what my major was going to be right out of high school. That changed drastically due to financial hardship, family issues, and the economy's collapse. Because I was in such a regimented career path, I was taking 15-18 credit hours per semester and most of those credits would not count for anything other than electives if I switched programs. I transferred... Read More

Degree: Nursing

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.

Fair warning to anyone who is considering attending this school: it WILL stress you out dealing with their faculty more than any class you will take. They are unorganized and extremely unhelpful. Be weary of contacting them via the phone because they have conflicting information.

I asked a representative over the phone about Financial Aid as it was my first time with the dilemma of dropping a class and putting me under "part-time" student status. Over the phone the man told me it would NOT affect... Read More

And you shouldn't call in anyways because I've called in the morning (9-10am) in the afternoon (12-3) and in the evening (4-5) on several different occasions and each time I've had to wait 30-45 minutes.

Why would you outsource at a college? Why would you not provide sufficient training? Not only that but they claim to cater to the working class, busy parents, people who can't attend full time or have odd hours of availability, but they do not staff at appropriate times. Don't go during the hours between 12 and 2 because they only have 1, maybe 2 advisers and only 3 people operating the desk. These 3 are there to help route out the "easy" questions that require more generalized answers or the more common issues. That's fine but even they don't have any particular care and give less than optimal information. They are slow, taking SEVERAL (between 5-10) minutes after ending a discussion with a customer to call up the next one in line.

Their portals are also consistently plagued with inconsistencies and difficult operating hurdles. I've had to call about twice each semester to have them adjust my program path when trying to select classes. Not to mention after I spent 2 semesters away a few years back, I returned and was told that I needed to reapply for school. This is all good and well, I understand that completely. However, after 3 semesters of taking courses, I spoke with a REAL adviser who informed me that after I had spent 3 semesters out of pocket, I had been started on the WRONG program path. I was supposed to be started on the original program path I had started the first time I attended FSCJ.

Overall, this school is atrocious when it comes to navigating through your courses and earning a degree.

This college has the worst organization in an admissions office that I've experienced. What school can't received a transcript and just process it? Their staff also will not answer your emails or help you with your questions. Avoid and go to a good school who wants to help students.

99% of the staff are not willing to help you and are not in a hurry to help you at all, there is horrible communications within the admin department. If you are a vet get ready to have your BAH delayed until pretty much the end of the semester so have some money saved up cause you are not getting a single cent.

If you have already graduated or taken classes at another college do not come here. They will mess up your transfer credits like it is their job. Then once you talk to them they will blame it either you or the computer. This school is fine out of high school but do not transfer.
