Will Fall Term classes be held on campus or online?
As the situation regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve, St. Petersburg College is working to be proactive to ensure minimal disruptions to student learning.
Therefore, we have decided that a portion of the Fall 2020 Term classes will be held on campus, including labs, healthcare, public safety, and other programs that require hands-on learning, as well as some general education courses where research has shown students are more likely to be successful in a face-to-face format.
Other classes will be offered fully online and in our LIVE Online format, which provides a virtual classroom experience where students can interact with faculty and peers in real time through video conferencing. Fully online courses are self-paced. LIVE Online courses provides the benefits of face-to-face courses in a live, remote setting without leaving the comfort of your home. While these courses offer greater flexibility, they are not self-paced.
Registration is open for the Fall Term.
It is important to us that you are able to build a schedule to keep you on track to fulfill your degree or certificate requirements on your path to completion!

Advisors will be available from 8:30 a.m. until 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. until 12 p.m.
We are also here to work with you to make sure you can thrive whether your class is face-to-face or online! SPC's Learning Resources offers online services for students, including tutoring and research assistance. VitalSource is also offering free digital textbook access and online tutoring.

What about students who have never taken classes online in MyCourses?
We recognize that SPC’s MyCourses online platform is unfamiliar territory for many students.

There students will find specific tips on how to get started in MyCourses, support resources and tutorials for the online tools. We will continue to update and expand this information to best support student success online.
