Step 2

Send us your transcripts

As you complete the online application process at St. Petersburg College, we’ll need your high school and college transcripts. Your records may show us you've already earned credits that will transfer to SPC, which can save you time and money.

Step 3

SEND YOUR SAT/ACT SCORES OR Take the college placement test, if needed

Test scores help you figure out which classes to take and show areas that need improvement. If you do not have SAT or ACT scores, you should take the College Placement Test.

Step 4


Every new student at SPC has access to meet with an Enrollment Specialist who can help you figure out your next steps. Check your personal and SPC student email accounts for an invite to make an appointment. If you are unable to make an appointment, you may also request assistance by filling out a Request Form.
