An Associate in Science (A.S.) degree prepares graduates for immediate entry into their chosen career field. According to state data, most Seminole State A.S. programs have placement rates above 95 percent.*

Additionally, most A.S. graduates earn credits that can be applied to a bachelor's degree at Seminole State or at the University of Central Florida through DirectConnect to UCF.

A.S. students who are planning to transfer to bachelor's degree programs should meet with a counselor, advisor or specialist to make sure the required courses are taken and the entry requirements are met.
