To support transfer students, Florida’s oldest community college, St. Petersburg College, recently announced plans to accommodate any students formerly enrolled at the defunct ITT’s Florida campuses, organizing a special transitional team to welcome incoming enrollees.
Not only will students be able to transfer credits, but they will also be exempt from the usual $40 application fee. Additionally, SPC is making it easy for them access information about transcripts, financial aid, programs and veterans’ services.
“We are prepared to assist ITT Technical Institute students who are looking to finish their degrees or certification programs,” Bill Law, SPC’s president, said. “This is an unfortunate situation that has affected thousands of students working to build a better future for themselves and their families through their pursuit of higher education, and we hope we can accommodate ITT Tech students in achieving those goals.”
Staff stands ready to assist students with classes including short-term modules as well as regular semester offerings. SPC offers several programs similar to ITT Tech’s such as information technology, business, health sciences, criminal justice and drafting and design.
St. Petersburg College features an array of certifications and degree programs geared toward both academic and vocational preparation. SPC is Florida’s first community college to have offered four-year degrees and operates 10 campuses in Pinellas County.
