Overall Experience: You can accomplish anything if you set your mind to it. Working hard is always the key.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at FSCJ was fantstic! The teachers, on campus or online, were very helpful and would like to see me improve in life. They know what they are talking about when teaching and have a strong passion about the subject that they are teaching.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love how there are many campus I can attend. I also like the ease of getting the classes I want, due to all of the campuses.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It reminds me of a private college, because it is close-knit, despite the multiple campuses.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school is pretty good. So far everyone it have been helpful, they help you with whatever your need is. The campus is pretty organized. They have plenty of people that go to different places for orientation so that you can already be familiar with the school information, also they have great advisors on campus to help you out. I would still be choosing this school if I could do it all over again, because the school have been so much helpful that I though it will be.

Overall Experience: they make feel proud of myself and they always there for me.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Attending a college is easy, it's just as simple as high school. The only difference is your treated more as an adult and less like a child. Also you earn a degree instead of a diploma.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was anxious as I imagined the Intermediate Math class would be: intellectual students, in-depth discussions about Math problems. I was also ill as I foresaw myself drowning in a murky pool of Math assignments and finals,hearing a deep, depressing voice ask "What can you do with your life?" Since, then, I've settled comfortably into the college "scene" and have treated to the myth that I'll hear my calling someday,and that my future will introduce itself to me with a hardy handshake. I can't completely rid my conscience from reality, however. My university education and college experience has become a sort of fitful, and sleepless night, in which I have wonderful dreams and ideas, but when I awaken to apply these aspirations, reality sounds as a six thirty alarm and my dreams are forgotten.

Overall Experience: FSCJ serves largely as a transitional school to the local universities. While I felt a sense of security in regard to the ease of course content and small class size, I did not necessarily feel challenged in my academics. The financial aid department had me complete paperwork and edit previous forms tirelessly for 8 months before I saw a penny of financial assistance. Advisors will rarely call students to alert them of problems that need to be fixed in their records, but instead rely on our college's website to notify students in very small, out-of-the-way text. Overall, the experience has been one I would recommend to those who prefer idling by in their academics with ease and to those whose financial state will not throw a wrench in the financial aid disbursement process.

Overall Experience: If you provide any hard copies of anything - give it to them in person do NOT mail them, they will never get it. Get an academic adviser when you go to orientation so you know who to go to later on when you register for classes. They do have occasional issues with getting electronic scores & transcripts but if you can pull up your test scores in front of them they can print it out, have you sign a form, and the assessment center will approve it - I had to have this done because they did not receive my ACT scores that I sent 2 weeks prior electronically. You may also experience "class error" when registering, this could be due to the reference number being incorrect and that the class is actually under a different code or in most cases fscj's system coded the class incorrectly (this happened to me for MAC1105). So the registration can be frustrating but after that it's pretty much smooth sailing. You set up your own schedule - unless you ask your adviser to set your entire schedule up which I would not recommend simply because you might end up in a class with a professor who has poor ratings from other students. Campus is well maintained and everything is mainly a huge leap. There are many little hidden places on campus where you can go study quietly. Internet access is nice. Get to school early especially if you're the typical Monday to Thursday student - parking is already far away from the buildings, lets just say even if you were closest to the building and it was storming, you'll be soaked no matter what. Students are fairly nice but a lot stick to themselves - if you know someone who attends have them introduce you to their groups of people, this is how I have already established small networks. Student portal could be more interface friendly but it is fairly easy to use. If you're a typical standard/honors student you will have to work a bit harder - if you were an AP & art student like I was - classes should be fairly easy but not too easy.

Overall Experience: It was ok not challenging at all tho

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: FSCJ is not the school for you if you want a well rounded college experience. There is no sense of community, the class selection is limited, and clubs are unstable. The website is never properly updated and programs (such as English honors society and the Honors Academy) have been suspended several times for "structural redesign." If you're looking to get in and get out, without putting much into college, this is the school for you. Class work is not challenging at all. I learned more in my high school freshman year film analysis class and high school sophomore year plays and playwrights class than I did the the FSCJ counterparts. I'm bored to death at FSCJ and am only returning until I am able to afford a better school. They have very limited bachelor's options and most of them are new and also need "structural redesign." I new that FSCJ wasn't going to be the challenging and comprehensive school I desired (I was accepted to Savannah College of Art and Design and to Columbia College Chicago, but couldn't afford either). Not only is the school lacking in interesting coursework and a student life experience, but my disabled husband experienced extreme discrimination when he wasn't allowed to attend an overnight trip to a conference with our student newspaper. They wouldn't accommodate a handicapped accessible van to get him to the even, nor would they allow him to be driven separately. The administration brought in lawyers to talk to our newspaper adviser to uphold that he was not allowed on the trip. I quit the newspaper (of which I was the Associate Editor) and took two semesters off while I investigated my other options. I'm still not positive I will return for fall semester despite being registered for classes. FSCJ has my talent grant (from 3 semesters ago) on "hold" until they determine my financial eligibility."Talent" grants should not be based on financial standing, but the talent you possess and the hard work you put into a job. I would not recommend FSCJ.

Academic Experience: I am receiving my AA degree prior to transferring to The University Of Central Florida, to continue my education as an future occupational therapist. My workload has been difficult, but not impossible. Math and Writing labs have helped with assignments.
