On February 1, 2018 Florida Technical College became an academic unit of NUC University (NUC). As an accredited school, Florida Technical College has educated students for 35 years. However, with the transition to becoming an academic unit of NUC, we believe we are an educational institution with an even brighter future that will allow us to serve your educational needs even better than before!
NUC University (NUC) is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE)*. We believe the MSCHE accreditation process will further enhance FTC’s programs through self-evaluation and improve our students’ opportunities in the future.
Florida Technical College is licensed by the Commission for Independent Education, Florida Department of Education (CIE).

NUC’s NUC University – IBC Technical Division (NUC-IBC), Florida Technical College (FTC), and The Digital Animation & Visual Effects School (The DAVE School) are included in this accreditation.

This change adds value and opportunities to your career. The fusion of our institutions will expand our academic offerings and provides a great variety of programs to choose from as you continue your studies. Likewise, we believe it will strengthen the education you receive as a NUC University student based on Middle States Commission on Higher Education’s (MSCHE).
