Why Am I Required To Give My SSN When Applying To PSC?

Florida Statute 119.071(5)(a) authorizes the collection and usage of your social security number by Pensacola State College (PSC). PSC collects and uses your SSN for state and federal reporting as required by Section 6050S of the Internal Revenue Code. To protect your identity, PSC will secure your SSN from unauthorized access and will not release your SSN to unauthorized parties. PSC assigns each student a unique student identification number which is used for most transactions at the College. For additional information, see the Social Security Number Collection and Usage Statement on our website.

Do You Need My ACT, SAT, PERT or TABE Scores Before I Can Register?

Because of new rules in Florida, not all students are required to submit test scores. To find out if you are exempt, check our exemption guide. Students with previous college work in English and/or math should meet with an advisor to determine testing needs. If you are not exempt and do not have prior college credit in Math/English, you will need test scores on file before you can register for classes. For more information about testing, go to our Testing Center page.
