What Students Are Saying

2.98 Average Rating
You should plan your classes out because some classes are only available in the spring or fall term
Tyler from Clearwater, FL
St Petersburg College is a great school. Most students only come for their A.A. degrees and go somewhere else for a Bachelors, however I highly recommend their 4 year programs. They have a variety of majors to choose from and their faculty is exceptional.
Danielle from South Pasadena, FL
If you're not sure of what you want to do, or are trying to save your money, apply at spc. It may seem like an extra year of high school, but once you're completing the same classes that your friends at UF or FSU are completing, you'll feel OK with it.
Meghan from St Petersburg, FL
Make sure you have all of your questions in order before going to talk to counselors. If you can, avoid talking to the counselors at the Tarpon Springs campus.
Amanda from Palm Harbor, FL
Get your books used and don't skip class! And pay attention, even if you end up retaking a class. It'll help, I promise. And use ratemyprofessor.com. Really.
Angelica from Tarpon Springs, FL
REMEMBER: If you're from out-of-state remember this is Florida: Life is courtly, s-l-o-o-o-w, and you have to ask nicely for everything a few times. Make sure you walk everything through with the administration people and keep copies of everything, especially if you're getting a waiver on something. The mentors help.

Make sure you interact with teachers and take advantage of the excellent mentoring and support programs.

Also, there're fantastic free College-provided cultural activities: Concerts, public debates and town halls with distinguished experts, quickie seminars from experts in the field, art exhibits. Also: A study-abroad, Model UN, and co-op/internship program.

The Bachelor majors are designed for things in high demand in Florida--Special Education, Biology, Nursing, Tech/Computers,etc.-- and have internships and hours requirements beyond those of many more famous universities, so people have an edge in employment.
Kennon from Saint Petersburg, FL
New students should get to know their campus and all of the services provided there so that they can utilize those tools to help them be a successful student.
Catrina from New Port Richey, FL
I recommend St. Petersburg College to obtain your Associates Degree [AA]. It will save you a lot of money so you can be in good shape onto transferring to any public Florida university. I have many friends who have transferred to University of Florida [Nursing Program] , Florida State University [Music Program], and University of South Florida [Music and Mass Communications Program] and saved a lot of money because of getting their 2 years of general education credits done.
Sean from Seminole, FL
Just need your inspiration only, and then you know already what you really want to do.
