This year's calendar calls for graduation ceremonies to take place at the end of April on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. The annual Adult High School and GED graduations will be combined and held Thursday, April 28, at 7:30 p.m. in the Gymnasium. The following evening, on Friday, April 29, college-credit graduation will be held at 8 p.m. in the Gymnasium. Because our number of college-credit graduates continues to grow, future ceremonies for Seminole State's college-credit graduates will be split into two events, beginning with the graduation scheduled for Friday, December 9, 2011.
All full-time College faculty and staff are invited to apply for the annual Mini-Grant Program of the Foundation for Seminole State College. The maximum award for an individual grant is $2,000.

Thank you to the hundreds of Seminole State employees who participated in the ADVANCE 2016 Strategic Plan input sessions in the weeks leading up to Spring Break. Our ADVANCE 2016 facilitators gathered ratings and suggestions from nearly 300 participants during interactive meetings on every campus. Refinements to the Strategic Plan are now under way, based upon your feedback. Please look for a revised draft later this month, along with another opportunity for additional comments before final review of this very important plan for Seminole State College. You can find more information about our entire ADVANCE 2016 initiative online at http://www.seminolestate.edu/ir/strategic-planning/.
Since 2009, when the College changed names from SCC to Seminole State College, we have maintained a second server that has redirected attempts to contact the old address. As of today, April 6, we will turn off the server that redirects attempts to connect to www.scc-fl.edu. Please check your Internet links to make sure they all point to www.seminolestate.edu (not www.scc-fl.edu). If you need assistance with this process, please contact the Help Desk at ext. 2000.
