Advising for Incoming Students

First-Time-in-College Students

Once accepted to Seminole State College, first-time-in-college (FTIC) students must complete an online orientation through MySeminoleState. After finishing the orientation, they will be prompted to sign up for an FTIC Group Advisement session. FTIC students are required to attend a group advising session before they can register for classes.

During FTIC Group Advisement, students will learn about the College's policies and procedures and receive specific information about the program they plan to study. Academic advisors will lead each session and help students enroll in their first-term classes.

To ensure accurate placement into classes, FTIC students should provide the following documentation to their advisor:

  • High school transcripts
  • Test scores (SAT, ACT, CPT, PERT etc.)
  • Proof of AB or IB credits earned
  • CLEP test results
  • Proof of completed Dual Enrollment courses

Transfer Students

Accepted transfer students must complete an online orientation through MySeminoleState. After finishing the orientation, they will be prompted to register for an appointment with an advisor.

To ensure accurate placement into classes, transfer students should provide the following documentation to their advisor:

  • Printed transcripts from all previously attended institutions
  • Proof of AB or IB credits earned
  • CLEP test results

Advisors will review all documentation to determine student’s first term courses.

Transfer students are required to submit their official transcripts to the Office of Enrollment Services. Enrollment Services will evaluate the transcripts to determine how much credit to award for previously completed course work and exams. Students must be currently enrolled in order to have their transcripts evaluated. Course selection may be limited until the evaluation process is complete.
