Steps to Enroll: Career and Technical Certificate Students

Seminole State College offers nearly 100 degrees and certificates to prepare you for immediate entry into the career field of your choice. Follow the steps below to become a career/technical student at Seminole State. If you have any questions regarding Seminole State's admissions process, contact the Admissions Office.

1. Submit an Application for Admission
You have several options for applying to Seminole State College:
2. Verify Your Residency Status
Please complete and submit a Florida Residency Affidavit as soon as possible. The Florida Residency Affidavit determines your eligibility for in-state tuition rates and is a very important part of the application process. Residency documents must be completed and submitted before you can proceed with the Steps to Enroll.
3. Apply for Financial Aid
Select vocational programs are eligible for financial aid. Please check your program for eligibilty. If you have not already applied for financial aid, do so immediately on the FAFSA website. Seminole State's six-digit FAFSA code is 001520. It typically takes four to six weeks to determine your eligibility. Additional information may be requested if you are chosen for verification.
4. Create Your MySeminoleState Account
Once your residency has been approved and you have a student ID number, visit MySeminoleState online, and click "Create New Student Account" in the Login box. Fill in the blank fields, and click "Save." If you have questions, visit the MySeminoleState Help page or call 407.708.2050.
5. Complete a Placement Test
You must complete the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) or the Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (PERT) before beginning most career and technical certificate programs at Seminole State. The TABE and PERT are offered on a walk-in basis in the Assessment and Testing Center on any Seminole State campus. For testing hours, study guides and practice exams, visit the Assessment and Testing Center online or call 407.708.2020.

If you have already taken the TABE or PERT, an official copy of your scores must be on file with the Seminole State Records Office before your advising appointment.

Please check with an Admissions Office representative to verify your program's requirements.
6. View the Online Orientation
Orientation is mandatory for all new students. During orientation, you will learn about College policies and procedures as well as campus activities. Click here to complete the online orientation. For more information, call 407.708.2050.

Please note: You cannot view the online orientation until you have turned in your residency affidavit and documents and created your MySeminoleState account (see steps 2 and 4).
7. Meet with an Advisor
After completing your online orientation, you will need to meet with an academic advisor. The advisor will use your test scores to determine your course eligibility and to help you plan your schedule.

Please note: Your test scores should be on file at least seven days before you speak with an advisor. You will not be permitted to attend your advising appointment if your scores are not on file with the College.

They must be received by the end of the add/drop period of your first term at Seminole State. You will not be allowed to register for subsequent terms if they are not received by the due date. Additionally, your financial aid cannot be paid out until your official high school transcripts or GED scores are on file with the College.
9. Register for Classes
You will register for classes during your advising appointment.
