FSCJ is NOT an Academic Institution.Other
FSCJ is NOT an Academic Institution. The so called professors do not teach, instruct or even comprehend their own department material. The Professors, whom I shall call staff, are only there to facilitate. They let websites and programs grade your progress. They do not grade or provide feed back on projects or assignments. They do not follow or write their own syllabus. They do not fact check students work. they require you to purchase books for hundreds of dollars and they don't even use them. The Staff of this institution believes that students should learn from students which is only an excuse to alleviate themselves from actually teaching. This is supposed to be an institution of higher learning and the materials and online discussion formats are terribly unrealistic and out of touch with the real world that college is supposed to prepare us for. Many classes offered cover the same exact material as other classes, the only difference is which chapter you find the material in. This is exactly the case with the Industrial Management Technology degree program. 4 Management classes and each separate text book which can cost between $100 and $300, Each start off with Steve Jobs as a case example. Now why do I have to revisit Steve Jobs in 4 different classes in the same degree program? aren't there other examples of great management icons to learn from or is it just part of regurgitating garbage to sell another text book? This regurgitation of information consistent in other text materials of different classes. Not just Steve Jobs, the entire class content is jumbled up in different chapters and resold to students under a different author and edition.

The advisors really have no idea what they'reNot so brightPsychology
The advisors really have no idea what they're doing and to cover it up they just tell students excuses like it will take a few business days for an issue to change when in reality they probably just lost yoir paperwork. I've heard countless people say they've had to resubmit forms on numerous occasions, including myself. They don't seem to really care for their students at all.

The education is quite different in the USA.Quite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
The education is quite different in the USA. I have a Bachelor's degree and the focus was learning, not testing. Slides, group projects and learn yourself is the norm at FSCJ, not actual classes and interaction with the teacher. I see FSCJ as money pit with no intention of teaching nothing, but take the money from students and let they do it alone. The "learning" is read a lot of material, talk with other students that know less than you, take quizzes and tests, and at the end, you will receive a piece of paper saying you complete your instruction. The truth is you could buy the books yourself cheaper, read then, but you would not have the certificate at the end of the course. All we are doing is paying for a piece of paper because there is not transfer of knowledge from teachers to students at all.
