President’s Message

I am delighted to welcome you to the 2021-2022 academic year. Congratulations on your decision to pursue higher education as a Patriot! Whether you are new or a returning student, we are invested in you and your future.

At CF, we are committed to your success, both academically and personally. Ninety-five percent of our graduates are found working in field or continuing with an advanced degree within one year of graduation. We will help you get where you’re going - whether it’s into a high-skill, high-wage career or continuing your education. Students who earn an associate degree can pursue a bachelor’s degree at CF, or seamlessly transfer into a state university. 

We understand that there can be financial barriers and personal obligations. That’s why keeping tuition costs low and offering a flexible class schedule are top priorities for us. We are able to offer more than $2 million in scholarship funds annually through the CF Foundation, with 76 percent of CF students graduating with no loan debt. And this year, we are able to offer 38% of our classes online! We strive to continue to maintain our top ranking in the U.S. for quality and affordability.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Intelligence plus character- that is the goal of true education.” There is more to CF than just a formal education. I encourage you to get to know your fellow students. Welcome them and learn from their differences. You’ll find many opportunities in person and virtually. We have many events scheduled throughout the semester and clubs and organizations to help you build your network of connections. Whether you cheer on the Patriots at a sporting event, or join a student organization to make an impact, you will create lasting friendships and memories. 

Thank you for making CF your first choice for quality higher education. On behalf of district board of trustees, faculty and staff, we all wish you a happy and successful 2021-2022 academic year!

James D. Henningsen, Ed.D.
President, College of Central Florida

History

Central Florida Junior College was established in 1957 when community leaders and citizens envisioned an educational resource that would help Marion, Citrus and Levy counties to grow and prosper. With foresight and determination, those community leaders planted the seed that has become the educational hub of the tricounty area.

In 1958, Hampton Junior College opened as one of the first black, two-year colleges in the state, and in 1966 the colleges merged. The name was changed to Central Florida Community College in 1971 to reflect more accurately the character and purpose of the college serving a larger community. In 2010, the college changed its name to College of Central Florida.

The Ocala Campus was established on a 60-acre tract donated by Atlantic Realty and Investment Company and the City of Ocala and has grown to include 140 acres. The attractive campus is at a crossroads, between downtown Ocala and Interstate 75 on State Road 200. The campus has been recognized by Marion County for its beautiful grounds.

In 1982, the Bronson Center opened on a 20-acre site east of Bronson. In 1993, the campus was relocated to the Levy Center in Chiefland. The Jack Wilkinson Levy Campus opened for classes in Chiefland in fall 2017.

The college also offered classes in Citrus County for many years before partnering with the Citrus County School Board to establish an educational complex in Lecanto in 1984. To accommodate agrowing need, a free-standing campus opened in 1996 on 88 acres in Lecanto. Ten acres have been added to the Citrus Campus. The Learning and Conference Center opened at the Citrus Campus in fall 2009.

CF’s Hampton Center opened in 1996 on the site of the former Florida State Fire College in West Ocala. The facility was completely rebuilt and reopened in 2004. The Hampton Center is an important presence in the west Ocala area, offering health occupations courses and community outreach programs.

The college has operated the Appleton Museum of Art since 2004. The museum has become even more of a teaching and learning institution, offering classes and tours, and helping to serve the cultural needs of the community.

The Vintage Farm Campus was added as a CF location in 2017, after an anonymous donor gifted the 103-acre hobby farm to the college. The beautiful site, just a few miles from the Ocala Campus, serves as a learning lab for students in Equine Studies and Agribusiness programs.

In recent years, the college has renovated several key buildings and added others that have changed the face of the Ocala Campus. The Ewers Century Center and Webber Center Gallery serve students and the community. Renovations to the C. Farris Bryant Student Union, Stearns Learning Resources Center, Health Sciences Simulation Center and the Charles R. Dassance Fine Arts Center have provided state-of-the-art technology and studentfriendly facilities. The oldest building at the college was renamed Founders Hall in 2007 and re-opened in 2009 after extensive remodeling.

Administration

College operations are governed by the College of Central Florida District Board of Trustees. Members of this board are appointed by Florida’s governor and confirmed by the Florida Senate. The chief administrative officer of the college is the president, who also serves as secretary to the District Board of Trustees.

CF has a seven-member board with representatives from Citrus, Levy and Marion counties. They bring strong leadership and unique backgrounds adding to the diversity of the college’s leadership.

Citrus Campus

The Citrus Campus is located at 3800 S. Lecanto Highway in Lecanto, approximately three miles south of State Road 44. Complete admission and registration activities and advising are available. All general education core requirements may be taken at the Citrus Campus. Complete A.A. degrees as well as select A.S. degree and bachelor’s courses are also available at the Citrus Campus. Some specific electives and specialized A.S. degree programs may need to be completed at the Ocala Campus. A student lounge, library, Learning Support Center and Testing Center are available to students at the Citrus Campus. In addition, the campus houses a bookstore branch that stocks textbooks and supply needs for courses offered at the campus. The campus has a Student Activities Board and a variety of clubs and student life activities. The Citrus Campus also offers conference services to the general public and the business community.

Hampton Center

The Hampton Center, located at 1501 W. Silver Springs Blvd. in Ocala, first opened in 1996. A new center re-opened in 2004 with a focus on health occupations. The center includes three classrooms, a computer lab and dedicated labs for its health education programs. Academic programs offered at Hampton Center include the Associate in Science in Physical Therapist Assistant and an Applied Technology Diploma in Dental Assisting. Students may build on the Dental Assisting Diploma to earn an Associate in Science in Dental Assisting Technology and Management. This degree has three options in Dental Practice Management, Education and Marketing.

The Marion County Health Department dental clinic is conveniently located in West Ocala at the Hampton Center. This unique partnership between CF and the health department provides a broad range of dental services while serving as a clinical site for the CF Dental Assisting program.

Jack Wilkinson Levy Campus

The Levy Campus is located at 15390 N.W. Highway 19 in Chiefland. The campus offers college credit courses leading to associate degrees and credit and vocational certificates. High school students may earn both high school and college credit through the Dual Enrollment program at the Levy Campus. The campus is also home to the college’s Applied Welding Technologies and Timber Harvesting Equipment programs. Adult general education programs leading to the General Education Diploma and continuing education courses are also offered.

The Levy Campus features a comprehensive student center with admissions, assessment, advising and enrollment services.

The campus offers fully equipped multi-purpose classrooms, computer labs, a multidiscipline science lab and 3,000 square feet of exhibit and conference space that will accommodate nearly 200 guests.

Vintage Farm Campus

The College of Central Florida Vintage Farm Campus offers several degree and certificate programs to help students enter leading industries in the state of Florida. Ocala is proclaimed the Horse Capital of the World because the area supports a wide range of equine activities. Combined with agribusiness, both industries have been the lifeblood of the tricounty region for decades. This campus serves as our teaching laboratory to ensure our Equine Studies and Agribusiness students are equipped with the best hands-on experiences to tackle workplace issues they will face in their chosen careers. This world-class resource facility houses classrooms, labs and in the future a covered arena training center that will be used for demonstrations, labs, and livestock judging events for both local primary and secondary schools.

Appleton Museum of Art

The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, is one of the south’s premier visual art museums. Located at 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd. (State Road 40), the museum is approximately four miles east of downtown Ocala.
