            FINALLY

Key ingredients to early success have
been respect for community college
mission; funds for planning and
implementation; and program majors
selected were in high demand areas
We are offering Baccalaureate degrees at a 4-
year open admission college at freshman
level
SACS’s position is that if you have any upper
division courses you change your name and
seek accreditation change to higher degree
Admission criteria are at the junior level e.g.
BSN requires RN for admission
            OUTCOME
Baccalaureate access greatly expanded in
Pinellas County by the leveraged approach
of the niche 4-year degrees offered by St.
Petersburg College
Expanded online offerings
Bachelor's degrees offered on our sites by
our University Partners
And expanded upper division offerings at the
St. Petersburg branch of our regional
university
