- As a learning-centered community college, Pensacola Junior College will continue the tradition of offering an affordable, quality education taught by first-rate faculty. More than 1,300 professional faculty and staff members blend their talents, teaching, and experience to fulfill dreams and create careers for PJC students. Pensacola Junior College is the name for an umbrella of multiple community colleges in Escambia County and Santa Rosa County, Florida. Pensacola Junior College provides a nurturing learning environment for students of all ages and at many stages of the education process. The main campus, located near Pensacola, was opened in 1948 and was the first institute of higher learning in the town (UWF would not open to a full class of undergraduates until 1983). PJC quickly expanded to include a downtown campus in 1957, and a Milton campus in 1971. A mini-campus opened on Naval Air Station Pensacola in 1981. A final branch in Warrington rounded out the five-location junior college system. PJC offers more than 150 recreation and leisure courses. Currently the college offers a two-year transitional program in conjunction with the University of West Florida. This is the most popular program among students, many continuing on to a bigger university setting after two years at PJC. The eCoast Campus staff understands the importance of services and support for distance learners. We also realize that distance learners may visit a PJC campus only rarely. This page provides links to resources that can help bridge the gap between PJC any off-campus location.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
