Collier County Campus opened in March of 1992. The beautiful campus is located on a 80-acre site near State Road 951 and Rattlesnake Hammock Road, in east Naples. The Charlotte County Campus opened in 1997. Located on a wooded site on Airport Road in Punta Gorda, the campus is an excellent addition to the Charlotte area. Edison also provides services to students in Hendry and Glades counties.

Edison State College is governed by its District Board of Trustees composed of nine representatives from Charlotte, Collier, Hendry, Glades and Lee Counties. The members are appointed to four-year terms by the Governor of Florida. Currently about 456 professional and support staff members provide the full-time instructional and support services for the more than 25,000 credit and nearly 3,000 non-credit students who participate in Edison courses and programs each year.
