We are Florida State College at Jacksonville!
FSCJ is growing its reputation as the largest, most dynamic and most influential higher education institution on the First Coast. The number of programs offered and the quality of our graduates produce significant economic impact on the Northeast Florida region. The economic impact of FSCJ was recently studied and findings were published in a report entitled The Economic Contribution of Florida State College at Jacksonville that was conducted by EMSI in March 2013.
FSCJ had an unduplicated headcount of 57,114 students served for the 2012-2013 academic year. The median age of students in college credit programs is 27.4 years old and the median age of students participating in continuing education programs is 39. The majority of FSCJ students are enrolled in associate degree or workforce certification programs. The balance of the student population is pursuing a bachelor degree or enrolled in high school completion or basic education programs.
Our diverse student body closely mirrors the diversity found in Northeast Florida. Our programs attract students from 120 countries around the world and these students contribute to the rich diversity of the FSCJ collegiate experience. Among the nearly 7,500 students receiving their degrees and certificates for the 2013-2014 academic year are:
