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: Human Services
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.
Degree: Liberal Studies
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
Returning / Transfer Student
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
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.
Degree: Information Technology
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.
Degree: Computer Programming
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.
Degree: Office Management
I studied supervision and management at Florida State College of Jacksonville. The accelerated 8 to 12 weeks program was online. What I like most about the programs was that it was conducive to my work schedule and I can study at my own pace. The assignment and lessons were interactive.
If you search any site with FSCJ you will see a plethora of negative comments. Its an institution that makes it difficult to believe they sincerely care about the students. There was an article released this year that speaks about the 10% loss of students but its no shock. FSCJ makes the schooling process way difficult breezes other local colleges. Financial aid is the WORST, many students struggle cause they wait weeks into the semester to see any financial aid that is the cost of books, etc. How... Read More
Degree: Liberal Arts
I agree with a lot of the comments on here about the arduous process of admission to FSCJ. I took the PERT, and had my transcripts from another college sent in. It took many days for the college to get me setup, then it wouldn't let me register for Summer (it was June 2018). That ended up being my fault, because I enrolled for Fall 2018 when I did my application. I spoke to multiple counselors, until I found one, who really worked with me. She checked into my application, reached back out to me when... Read More
