Do I have to be a high school graduate or have completed my GED to attend PHSC?

Applicants who have graduated from high school and received a standard diploma (or its equivalent) or who have successfully completed the General Education Development (GED) test will be admitted in good standing.

Applicants who have received special diplomas, other Certificates of Completion or Certificates of Attendance from a Florida public high school will be admitted to the College in good standing, but are not eligible for admission to baccalaureate degree programs, associate degree programs, college credit certificate programs, limited access programs and some postsecondary adult vocational programs.

Applicants who are at least 18 years of age but have neither graduated from high school nor passed their GED test will be admitted to the College in good standing, but are not eligible for admission to degree programs, college credit certificate programs, limited access programs and some postsecondary adult vocational programs. These students will be encouraged to complete their GED during their first term of study at the College.
