Lake City, Florida
2- and 4-year, Regionally accredited
Degrees: Certificate, Associate's, Bachelor's
If you live in North Central Florida and are choosing a college for its student- and cost-friendly approach to higher education, we think you should consider Florida Gateway College (FGC). As a "gateway" to a four-year degree, FGC serves students who intend to save significant dollars by earning an Associate's degree before transferring to a larger state or private school.
About 70% of FGC's students are part-time and one-third are 25 or older, so the college serves their geographic area in an impressive manner. Degree programs in Health Sciences, including Registered Nurse, plus Certificates in Criminal Justice provide students with employable skills.
We looked at cost to attend, educational programs, and of course student comments, and were satisfied FGC deserved the designation 2016 Best Value School, their second consecutive award.
