Ethics, Ethics, Ethics!!!!! Would you rather have student loans of $30K and a Masters degree from a well respected university, or $28K of debt and an associates degree from a corrupt educational institution in Orlando, Florida?
Be aware! For the price of your education at Florida Technical College, your credits may not transfer to a four year college or university. Not to mention that members of the faculty are involved in fraud, drugs and religious discrimination. You say that you're not a born-again christian??? I would avoid this place at all costs. Go to a community college, save some tuition and obtain a degree that is actually worth something to an employer.
This school has a similar feel to the current issues surrounding the validity of the degrees offered by Phoenix University.
I understand that private education is basically a cash machine for these companies, but the ethics of providing a valuable service to the student is the issue at hand here. Does convenience justify 3X's the cost of the same type of degree that transfers to any school?
Here's what happens, you say that you can't read or write in the english language? No problem, not that they offer classes in additional languages, nope, but if you show up to class (and that's not really a requirement), pay your monthly bill, TA DA! You can have a degree!! Congratulations!
Another important aspect of the rip-off is that once you have graduated, your degree is not released to you until you have paid off the entirity of your student loans! I have never been so disgusted with a companies operating proceedures than when I found out that public broadcasting is actually supported by federal grants and not the so coveted listener base. More on that in another rip-off report.
