Florida has 28 Colleges across the state and serves over 880,000 students.

Florida’s Colleges have become important providers for workers needing to develop, retool, refine, and broaden their skills. Because of their close connection to local labor markets, Florida colleges are well positioned to prepare workers for high demand occupations. Most of the nurses and first responders in Florida are community college graduates. And, the majority of our teachers get their start at community colleges.
