Pasco-Hernando State College, in accordance with CDC guidelines, will be offering a select number of courses for in-person learning in the spring. Each class will allow up to 12 students in the classroom with social distancing applied to each space. We are excited to bring our students back to each of our five campuses and offer the in-person modality.
Remote learning and hybrid courses will still be available as we continue to add more in-person courses in the coming months with safety at the core of this plan.
PHSC President Timothy Beard, Ph.D., says, “The world of Higher Education has been upended as never before. The impact of COVID-19 will be felt for years to come. Colleges and universities have been forced to an operational zone in 2020 which we could not have imagined in prior years. Although PHSC, like all of the Florida state colleges, transitioned to nearly a total online platform to provide instruction and services for our students, it is critical for PHSC to start performing the necessary activities for our students to return to face to face instruction and services to foster their educational success. In 2021, we will start the necessary work to ensure their return in the safest way possible.”

We will be waiving application fees for our students and registration will continue through the holiday until the spring term begins in January to ensure students have extra time to get into the courses they require.
