Florida's 28 colleges are open to everyone and offer GED training, adult basic education, as well as certificate, associate, and bachelor's degree programs. Certificate and degree programs offered at the colleges range from automotive service technology to nursing to the Associate in Arts degree, which guarantees transfer to one of Florida's 12 state universities or a Florida College System institution.
