Verify your residency status.

Provide your high school and college transcripts.

Acceptance into one of the bachelor's degree programs cannot be determined until your transcripts have been received. Official transcripts must be sent by the bachelor's application deadline to the College at: Seminole State College of Florida, Enrollment Services, 100 Weldon Blvd., Sanford, FL 32773. Financial aid will be delayed until your high school transcript has been received and evaluated.
