Colleges & Universities

  • Students smiling in graduation cap and gown


    Going to college is not for everyone, but it is an option that every student should consider. Why? ...because there are so many types of colleges and college level programs available, opportunities that will suit nearly every need or interest and the various talents and abilities found among individual high school students.

    Who goes to college? Students who:

    • Wish to pursue academic studies in an intellectual environment beyond the high school level;
    • Plan to pursue a career or employment opportunity that requires college-level training and skill development;
    • Want to increase their earning potential;
    • Seek a higher quality of life for themselves and their families;
    • Wish to meet new people, explore new interests, and experience success in a college setting; and/or
    • Desire the social and/or career status and mobility often associated with a college education.

Florida's 2 + 2 System

  • Florida is nationally recognized for its highly effective articulation between and among institutions. Students can begin their postsecondary studies at a Florida college and, after earning a 2-year associate degree, transfer to a 4-year degree program at a state university, a Florida college that offers 4-year programs, or a private university.

    Students who choose to transfer to a state university are guaranteed admission, although not necessarily to the university or program of their choice. About 40% of juniors and seniors in the state universities began their postsecondary studies at a Florida college.
