About Florida State College at Jacksonville
Founded in 1965, Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ), then known as Florida Junior College (FJC), opened its doors during the height of the nation’s community college movement to proudly serve the Northeast Florida region as the first public, postsecondary educational institution in Duval or Nassau County to exist on an integrated basis. Over the next 20 years, the College would proceed to open the five campuses that are still occupied today and make up the current Florida State College at Jacksonville. FJC reached a big milestone in 1986 as it registered its 500,000th student and changed its name from Florida Junior College to Florida Community College at Jacksonville (FCCJ) in response to community input and engagement. During the next two decades, the College continued to grow exponentially and expanding the programs and courses it offered students. In 2007, the College received accreditation to offer baccalaureate degree programs. In 2009, Florida Community College at Jacksonville announced the name by which it is known today, Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). From an initial enrollment of 2,610 students in Fall 1966 to the current enrollment of 50,000 stud...ents, the College has grown to offer 13 bachelor’s degrees, 45 associate degrees and more than 100 technical certificates and workforce certifications. The Florida State College at Jacksonville BlueWave Athletics Department is proud to feature six teams: baseball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, softball, women's cross country and women's volleyball. After the 2015-16 academic year, 18 student-athletes went on to play at a higher level (NCAA or NAIA). In addition to a legacy of competitive teams that compete in the National Junior College Athletic Association, we also have a strong history of achieving great academic success. In 2015-16, 27 of our student-athletes made the All-Academic Team for the Florida College System Activities Association (FCSAA) with a 3.30 GPA or higher. Twenty of these student-athletes then went on to make the All-Academic National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) team with a 3.5 or higher GPA. Additionally, our baseball team was second in the state with a cumulative team GPA of 3.27. We recently implemented a BlueWave Life Skills program to enhance student-athlete success. The program focuses on five areas: academic success, athletic success, community service, personal development and career/financial success. Student-athletes attend seminars to enhance their life in areas such as leadership development, building healthy relationships, communication and financial literacy while continuing to be the best students they can be in the classroom. In addition, coaches and teams represent FSCJ in service endeavors throughout Duval and Nassau counties and our College community. We welcome the public to our athletic and community events including the upcoming summer programs such as camps and high school league tournaments.
