    Its a great college if you plan on getting an Associates in Arts to transfer to a four year university! its far cheaper than going all four years at a large university. the professors are knowledgeable as well.

    This school is very understanding and accomadating for their students. They accept just about all credit courses from transfer students. They also have one of the best nursing programs in the state. They’re very beneficial when it comes to students with financial struggles. They provide their own scholarship opportunities for students who need the extra help. Overall an amazing student-oriented school.

    This school is very accommodating of students with financial struggles, adults that want to finish their education. The social aspect is not so great cause everyone is on their own.

    This school is a great opportunity for students worried about finances. The access to teachers and to resources is great here! Just make sure you keep track of your own educational plan and don't rely on the advisors too much.

    Polk State College is a great stepping stone in the college experience but it should not be your final destination in terms of education. Classes are a hit or miss heavily depending on the instructor and the department. There are multiple professors that have poor reviews on RateMyProfessor.com and instead of improving their course based on that and the "anonymous" college feedback system, scoff at it. The Lakeland campus will have you waiting hours at Guidance / Admissions. But putting all of that aside, PSC has a great location, offers a ton of different courses at each campus, and generally has a positive atmosphere.

    the teachers here are pretty great for the most part but the administration is horrible. bad attitude and they don't answer the phone to help you. if they do answer the phone, expect someone imcompetent to help you on the other end. i applied for a student loan way earlier than expected and i still haven't received one. i called and called and i had one person from polk tell me that i will be getting it in a week. nearly a month goes by and i still don't have it. i call again and the next person tells me the loan hasn't even been processed!? talk about a waste of time and energy on both ends. such impotence with the staff pool, it just baffles me. their was also one instance where the advisor told me i needed to take the classes for my major to get into a specific program when in fact i didn't.... money hungry college or just imcoptence? i wouldn't wish for my worst enemy to go through what i went through with psc administration. the teachers are great on the other hand.

  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The Campus is a fairly large size and has a easy to navigate and attractive layout with plenty of greenery. It is conveniently located in Winter Haven, near multiple food establishments, convenience stores, places of worship, etc., and has many necessities on campus as well, such as a cafeteria, library, multiple art rooms, media center, etc.. All of the students and professors I met while visiting were friendly and welcoming.
