Pensacola State College, originally Pensacola Junior College, is the name of a multi-campus public college in Escambia County and Santa Rosa County.

The main campus, located in Pensacola, opened in 1948 and was the first institution of higher learning in Northwest Florida. (The area's second such institution was the University of West Florida, which first admitted students in 1967). PJC expanded to include a Downtown Pensacola campus in 1957, a Milton, Florida campus in 1971, a mini-campus on Naval Air Station Pensacola in 1981, and a fifth campus in Warrington.

The name was changed in 2010, when the college began offering upper-level undergraduate coursework and bachelor's degrees. The college's slogan is "You can get there from here."

PSC operates WSRE, the only PBS member station in town.
