Cocoa Campus

Cocoa Campus is the oldest and largest of Eastern Florida State College's four campuses. Well-known for its innovative ideas in providing unique services and opportunities for students, the Cocoa campus is the central location for EFSC's Registrar's Office, the repository of academic records for all of our students.

Also in Cocoa, students benefit from a STEM building designed to house classrooms, labs, and workforce facilities targeting the subjects of science, technology, engineering, mathematics with hands-on training in HVAC, welding, CNC machining, and mechatronics. Plus the popular Aerospace Technology, Veterinary Technician, Dental, Medical Assistant and Lab Tech, and Cosmetology programs call the Cocoa Campus home.

A Parternership with UCF

The Cocoa Campus boasts two joint-use facilities with the University of Central Florida — the EFSC/UCF Joint Use Library (Building 12) and the Clark Maxwell, Jr. Lifelong Learning Center (Building 3). Our Campus is also home to UCF's Florida Solar Energy Center.

DirectConnect to UCF is a popular option among the guaranteed transfer options for EFSC A.A. degree grads or students with an articulated A.S. degree. A UCF Success Coach based in Cocoa will help you throughout your journey from EFSC to UCF.

Honoring the past & building for the future

Along the shores of Clear Lake, the Gen. George F. Schlatter Veterans Memorial Amphitheater features the Wall of Honor that memorializes members of the armed forces who have died in service to their country. Cocoa is also home to walk-in services for our student veterans, active military, and their dependents through our Military and Veterans Service Center.

The Cocoa Campus features the Bernard Simpkins Fine Arts Center, home to the College's Performing and Visual Arts programs that include instrumental and choral music, theatre, and visual arts.

A new era is planned with a 10-year Master Plan to invest $87 million to build new academic buildings, student housing, and make improvements to campus grounds.
