At a Florida community college, students can take advantage of lower tuition rates and smaller class sizes than what they would find at a four-year university. Additionally, many schools offer flexible scheduling options such as evening or online classes which can make it easier for working adults to pursue their educational goals. Furthermore, each school has an extensive library system with access to digital databases and e-journals that can help students with their research needs.

The majority of community colleges in Florida also have career services departments that provide assistance with resume building workshops, job search assistance and internship opportunities. These services are especially helpful for those who are looking to start their own business or pursue a career in entrepreneurship. In addition, many schools have articulation agreements with four-year universities so that credits earned at one school can easily be transferred to another if a student decides to pursue additional education after graduating from the community college.
