Pasco-Hernando Community College will open the new Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch in Wesley Chapel on January 13, 2014, the first day of spring term classes. This campus will increase access to higher education and workforce training opportunities in the rapidly growing region of southeast Pasco County.
Classes at the new Porter Campus will cover a number of disciplines such as business administration, nursing and information technology and those that lead to an Associate in Arts (AA) degree.
Students interested in taking classes on the Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch can register at the Brooksville, Dade City, New Port Richey, or Spring Hill campuses, or online if they are a current student. The spring course schedule is available online. Open registration for all new, returning, credit or noncredit students begins November 12, 2013.
“This is an exciting time in PHCC’s history and we are making sure everything is ready for the doors of the new campus to open on schedule,” said Stanley Giannet, Ph.D., Porter Campus Provost. “The opportunities and potential of our newest campus are truly limitless. We invite students and area residents to visit Porter Campus and to take advantage of all that we have to offer, from credit and noncredit courses to life-long learning programs.”
Porter Campus features a classroom building linked by a plaza to the library building, built above a three-story parking deck; it boasts four floors—two dedicated solely to health care programs. There are 10 classrooms, four computer labs, four science labs and eight health labs on the campus. A full-service library, Teaching-Learning Center and a career and testing center also are housed on campus.
Located at 2727 Mansfield Blvd., in Wesley Chapel, the multi-level campus is set on 60 acres of property adjacent to Wiregrass Ranch High School on the south side of State Road 56, approximately two miles east of Interstate 75.
