Admissions / Application Answers

  1. I attended Pensacola State College quite awhile ago.  Do I need to submit an admissions form again?

    You will need to submit a new application if it's been more than a year since you have taken classes at Pensacola State College.  Please submit an online application and look through our Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide.


     

  2. Will I have to pay out-of-state tuition if I live in Alabama and want to attend school at Pensacola State College?

    We offer reduced tuition rates for Alabama residents. Please view our Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide and a Pensacola State College application.


     

  3. Do I need to pay the application fee before registering for classes?

    Yes, you need to pay the application fee before registering for classes.  You can pay your application fee by logging into Spyglass from www.pensacolastate.edu.  We also need your ACT, SAT or PERT scores on file before you can register for classes.

    For more information about registering for classes please view our Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide.


     

  4. What are the average GPA and SAT scores for freshmen?

    Pensacola State College is an open enrollment college, which means we accept students regardless of their GPA or test scores.  If students score a minimum of 440 in Reading, English and Math, then they will be eligible to begin college level courses with no other testing requirements. If you do not have ACT or SAT scores or your scores do not test you into college level courses, you will be required to take the Florida College Entry-Level Placement Test (PERT) at any of our Pensacola State College campus locations.


     

  5. Do you need my ACT, SAT or PERT scores on file before I can register for classes?

    Yes, we need your scores on file before registration can take place. Also we need your application fee paid before you will be allowed to register.  Please view our Step-by-Step Getting Started Guide.
