Welcome Pirates! Thank you for choosing Pensacola State College. We are confident that you can achieve your academic goals, whether that’s transferring to a university after graduation or moving into the workforce. 

When Pensacola State College opened its doors in 1948, 136 students composed the entire student body. Today, as we celebrate our 75th anniversary, the College has bestowed more than 117,000 degrees to Pirate graduates. We hope to add your names and numbers to that list someday soon.

Pensacola State is listed among the best colleges in the South by U.S. News and World Report. With flexible schedules and a variety of educational delivery methods – day, night, face-to-face, online, and hybrid classes – Pensacola State College will meet you where you are today. Our highly-qualified and caring faculty and smaller classroom sizes allow for a more intimate and personalized learning experience, and with academic support programs such as virtual and face-to-face tutoring, veteran support programs, and mental health services, students can easily find any resource they may need to ensure their academic success.

The College has six locations –Pensacola, Milton and Warrington campuses as well as three centers in Century, South Santa Rosa, and Santa Rosa Industrial Park West, and Pensacola State College’s reach goes far beyond Pensacola through online learning.

You are enrolled in one of the most affordable and accessible colleges in the nation – 95 percent of our students graduate debt-free. We also award more than $24.6 million in scholarships, financial aid and grants each year. We firmly believe that anyone who wants to attend Pensacola State College should be able to.

The Pirate experience is important to us. We offer students the opportunity to participate in collegiate sports, art exhibitions, music and theater performances, intramural sports and the opportunity to join numerous clubs and organizations that can make the experience at PSC even more special and memorable.

The entire Pirate Family welcomes you to Pensacola State College, where every day we dedicate ourselves to transforming lives and futures. We are here to help you make the most of your educational experience.

We’re excited about your future at Pensacola State!

Go Pirates!
