Message From the President

Dear Colleagues,

Welcome to Polk State College (PSC)! We are one of 28 public colleges in Florida offering certificate, associate in arts, associate in science, associate in applied science and selected baccalaureate degrees. In addition to a variety of certificate and degree programs, our Corporate College offers customized training programs for our business and industry partners.

As you read through our Catalog, you will see many options designed to meet your educational needs. You may be particularly interested in our new baccalaureate degree, offering three options for specialization, that is designed specifically for associate degree graduates. If you plan to transfer to another institution after completing your associate degree, PSC has strong articulation agreements with state and private colleges and universities to ensure a seamless transition.

Everyone at Polk State College is committed to your success. Our smaller class sizes create more opportunities for interaction with your peers and professors, and our 21st century technology gives a current, competitive edge so you can excel in any area of specialization. In every class you will receive instruction from outstanding faculty members who are experts in their disciplines and dedicated to the teaching profession.

Our commitment to your success extends beyond the classroom. Our dedicated Student Services staff and the professionals in our libraries and Teaching/Learning Computing Centers are available to assist you in achieving your goals. On behalf of the faculty and staff, I welcome you to explore the exciting possibilities that await you here at Polk State College.
