When an emergency poses a potential threat to life and safety, the college will issue timely warnings (Clery reportable crimes) and/or emergency notifications to students and employees. The college's main website at www.spcollege.edu is the official source of college information regarding the status of the institution.
To help you stay informed, SPC can call or text you about campus safety warnings, campus closings, weather notifications, key deadlines and other important information. In an emergency, the college calls your home phone number as your primary contact. You can change your primary phone from your home phone number to your cell phone number in MySPC.
Check our Emergency Preparedness blog to find:
- The latest emergency alerts (also posted below)
- Instructions on how to choose to receive text messages for alerts, verify your home phone number and add your cell phone number as the primary contact.

The college will move to voluntary face coverings for vaccinated individuals beginning Thursday, June 3. This is in line with recent recommendations from the CDC and follows state guidelines. The college will maintain social distancing in classroom seating and other mitigation practices during the summer term, and begin work this summer to transition spaces back to normal, pre-pandemic distances for the fall term. Note that some clinical, lab, and studio spaces will continue masking and will be marked as such.
Hurricane season runs from June 1 through Nov. 30. During this time, SPC officials closely monitor Pinellas County Emergency Management bulletins and official weather forecasts when SPC falls within the National Hurricane Center’s zone of landfall probability. By doing so, SPC will have time to activate the college’s Emergency Management Plan, alert campus personnel, recommend protective actions, including evacuations, and communicate emergency notifications.
