The nearest college is FSCJ (Florida State College at Jacksonville). It's a good place to get your associates degree but overall it's nothing impressive. Their admin process to get you admitted as a student is PAINFUL and long. Lots of paperwork that other schools wouldn't even ask for and the idiots working there typically lose it or tell you different stories  about the status of your student admission. The campus is dead little to no student life but that's probably because most of their student body are Sailors going there for evening courses. It's simple in construction and interior design. The professors are shockingly supportive and personable. They all seem to have a great skill of making the material seem easy and stress-free. The credits transfer regionally accredited and military friendly. They offer traditional 16 week courses or quick 8 week courses and tend to have a very diverse class schedule to cater to your needs time-wise.

there are a decent amt of LEGIT colleges available and alot of scam schools as well. be aware scam schools tell you the credits dont transfer and a degree from there could be worth nothing.
