Application fee waived during virtual college fair Explore SPC on May 12 & 14

St. Petersburg College’s application fee will be waived during its virtual college fair Explore SPC on May 12 and 14. Attendees can connect with faculty, along with financial aid and academic advisors, to have questions answered online and in real time so they can take the next step in their careers.

Explore SPC will offer day and evening sessions from 10 a.m. – noon and 5-7 p.m. The event will feature:

  • Online breakout sessions, including “How to become a Titan”, “How to Pay for College” and “Titan Student Life”
  • Virtual expos for participants to learn more about SPC’s academic community and student services
  • Live Q&As with career and academic advisors

“We are excited to offer Explore SPC in a virtual format this year,” said SPC Director of Recruitment Services Reggie Reed. “Unfortunately, many individuals have experienced employment hardships due to the pandemic and it’s important to us that we introduce students to opportunities to re-skill with our short term training options so they can return back to the workforce.”  

SPC offers more than 110 degrees and training programs that lead to high-wage and in-demand careers. Expert speakers will provide insight on how SPC will support students throughout their academic journey from application to graduation and beyond. Speakers include:

  • SPC Director of Recruitment Services Reggie Reed
  • SPC Online Student Activities and Services Coordinator Brandie Ebert
  • SPC Executive Director of Financial Assistance Services Todd Smith
  • SPC Career and Academic Advisor Terry Hogan

Attendees can learn more about SPC’s university partnerships with the University of South Florida System (FUSE) and Florida A&M (Ignite). These partnerships guarantee admission into select bachelor’s degree programs for eligible students who complete their associate degree at SPC.
