Did you know...Seminole State now offers five bachelor's degrees. You can apply for these high-demand degrees as a freshman or as a junior.
Science Diploma/Science Merit Diploma
Students who desire a Science Diploma or Science Merit Diploma must complete and submit to the science diploma coordinator a Science Diploma Application, two letters of recommendation from former or current professors, an unofficial copy of their transcripts, and a personal letter of application that describes the academic and career goals that make them a desirable Science Diploma candidate. They must also take at least eight science/math courses (seven required courses and one elective course) that follow one of two tracks:
Students also take two semesters of seminar courses, which may be any one or two of the science seminar courses which focus on research, science careers or environmental issues in alternating semesters and/or one of the math applications courses.
These courses provide a diverse and strong educational foundation in lower-division coursework for students who plan to major in the hard sciences or the health, mathematics or engineering fields. Successful completion of the required courses results in less time spent at the university and a higher probability of admission to limited-access programs. Scholarship money is available to students who qualify, and some universities also provide scholarships for Seminole State Science Diploma transfers.
Students must submit their transcripts by the midterm of the semester in which they plan to graduate and have no more than two withdrawals on their transcript. If more than two withdrawals are present, approval must be granted from the Science and Honors Departments to receive a Science Diploma or Science Merit Diploma.
Track A: Biology, Chemistry, Health or Pharmacy
Track B: Mathematics, Actuarial Science, Engineering or Physics
Choose any one upper-level course:
