Located in the heart of Pensacola, Florida, Pensacola State College has long been one of the area’s most influential community higher education institutions. The college strives to enable as many local community members as possible to enroll in coursework in pursuit of a post-secondary degree or career or technical certificate. In addition to pursuing an Associate’s degree or a certification, students may also complete coursework to gain college credit, which may be transferred to a variety of four-year institutions. Students who enter Pensacola State College without a clear program of interest have the option of taking courses in the program of general studies. They may then pursue an Associate’s Degree in a specific discipline or utilize their credits to transfer to a four-year institution. The school also offers continuing education courses for non-traditional students.
