- Public Institution Type
Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ) was founded in 1965. Then known as Florida Junior College (FJC), its doors opened during the height of the nation’s community college movement to proudly serve the Northeast Florida region as the first integrated public, postsecondary educational institution in Duval or Nassau Counties.
SCJ is growing its reputation as the largest, most dynamic and most influential college in Florida. Offering 13 bachelor’s degrees, 45 associate degrees and more than 100 technical certificates and workforce certifications, FSCJ has degree options for everyone.
Our services and resources include:
Student Services ensures FSCJ’s diverse student population has the resources and tools they need to succeed in the pursuit of higher education. With our focus set on you – our students – we provide essential support services along the way, beginning with application through graduation.
Set right in the heart of downtown Jacksonville in the historic Lerner Building, FSCJ Student Housing offers a convenient and affordable housing opportunity for our students.
Beautifully renovated to maintain the building’s historical character, the 58 apartment-style living spaces are positioned on the second through sixth floors.
Florida State College at Jacksonville's campuses and centers are located throughout Duval and Nassau counties, offering courses during the day, evening and weekends.
Every campus offers the courses required to earn an associate in arts degree for university transfer. We also offer bachelor degrees with courses offered at multiple campuses. But beyond that, each campus has its own specialties, nuances and attributes that make each a little different than the others. Students may choose to attend one or more campuses/centers of their choice, but keep in mind that the core courses for many degree programs are available only at specific locations.
The mission of the BlueWave Athletic Department is to support the greater goals of the college by providing opportunities for responsibility, leadership, and sportsmanship through healthy collegiate competition, intramurals, club sports, integrated curriculum in sports media, and fitness centers.
FSCJ is home to a variety of intercollegiate social, academic, service and occupational organizations. Some of the organizations include Phi Theta Kappa; Forensic Team; PaRDi; Brain Bowl Team; Rotaract Club; and the International Student Association.
