About Our College

PHSC was established in 1967 by the Florida Legislature and is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the associate degree, as well as two bachelor's degrees.[1] The college also offers other certification programs in computer science, health care, and law enforcement. Some of the newest programs include the Associate in Science in Professional Pilot Technology and the Associate in Science in Aviation Administration both of which PHSC began offering in the fall of 2017. Additional aviation programs, Aviation Maintenance Administration and Unmanned Vehicle Systems Operations Associate in Science (AS) degrees, have recently been approved by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) and are slated to begin in 2018. PHSC also offers dual-enrollment classes for high school students. Many students select the four-year state college as an alternative to higher priced four-year institutions with the prospect of transferring.[citation needed]
