Academic Flexibility: The curricula for AA-degrees at St Peretsburg College are flexible. Students can construct an AA-degree to satisfy the prerequisites for their intended major at a four-year college, or those in the University Partnership Program. This allows students to complete their bachelors degree at SPC or transfer to a four-year college.

Overall Experience: So far I have been satisfied with the classes and course content. The tuition for in-class and online courses are the same, and they offer degrees that can be completed online. In addition their University Partnership Program allows students to obtain a bachelors degree, without transferring to another college. St Petersburg College(SPC) offers the most unique Orthotics and Prosthetics Programs. If I had to choose a college all over again, I would definitely choose SPC again.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: While most of my classes were taken online, the professors communicated with the students every week , and respond promptly to questions asked of them. The courses are diverse, and are designed to facilitate transfer between participating institutions. With numerous writing assignments, the coursework was challenging, and at the end of each semester I felt like I earned my grade. In a sense, the course curriculum forced me to "go hard or go home".

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: St Petersburg College (SPC) is one of four schools on the east coast of the US, that offer a program in Orthotics and Prosthetics( O& P). However, of these four schools, SPC is the only school that offers both bachelors and masters degrees in O & P. St Petersburg College therefore offers students the best opportunity to gain a more in depth understanding of the program materials, than the masters programs at the three other schools. This then makes a degree in O & P from SPC more valuable than that from other programs that only offer a masters degree. In addition the O & P program has a intense residency program that prepares graduates for their careers.
