Get ready for Summer Term at Seminole State

Summer classes have begun. Get off to a good start by learning more about Seminole State.

The Summer Term is under way, and we want you to be prepared. Whether you're a current Seminole State student, a transient student or this is your first time in college, it's a good idea to  familiarize yourself with the College as classes begin this week. Here are a few links to help you get started.

Blue & Gold Card
The Blue & Gold Card is Seminole State's student ID. It not only serves as identification but also provides access to services on campus. You need your Blue & Gold Card to purchase books, borrow library materials, receive a parking decal and more. You'll also have 24/7 access to your Blue & Gold Card account online. Visit Card Services on any campus to receive your card.

Bookstores

Purchase textbooks, new Seminole State gear and more. For your convenience, the campus bookstores will have extended hours on Friday and Saturday during the first week of classes. Check the bookstore website for more details.

Campus Maps

Print a map before you arrive and familiarize yourself with it. If you can’t find your class when you arrive, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Remember, other students may be looking for their classes, too. Faculty and staff will be happy to point you in the right direction.

Class Schedules
To view or print your class schedule, log in to MySeminoleState, the student portal, and click on Student Center. Computers are available on each campus to print your schedules.

Emergencies
Seminole State Alert is the online go-to source for information in an immediate life-threatening or serious situation involving safety on any Seminole State campus. Students also should know the number to the College's Emergency Hotline: 407.708.2290. We suggest you add it to your contacts, so you'll have access to emergency information when you're not near a computer.

eServices
eServices assists students with several aspects of the academic experience, including admissions, advising and registration. With eServices, advising appointments are available via phone or Skype and can be scheduled through the eAdvising Calendar. In addition to advising, eServices offers eForms, which allows students to save time by submitting some forms electronically.


Financial Aid
Get the latest information on tuition, fees, grants, loans and scholarships. Visit the Financial Aid website to learn about the Seminole State OneCard and to find answers to frequently asked questions about financial aid.

Libraries
Library services are available at all four Seminole State campuses. Of course you can check out books, but Kindles and Nook eReaders also are available. Plus, you can access a wide range of electronic and print research materials to help you with your studies. Check the Library home page for hours.

Nature's Table Cafe
If you need a little brain food between classes, stop by Nature's Table Cafe, which has locations on each of the College's four campuses.

Parking
Students must have a permit to park on campus. Present your Blue & Gold Card and your license plate number at any Cashiers Office to obtain a free parking decal. Students must park in designated student parking lots, which have white-lined parking spaces and are indicated by gray markings on the campus maps. Students who violate campus parking rules may be fined and/or have their cars towed, so make sure you're aware of the College's parking and traffic regulations.

Students are encouraged to sign up for Seminole State Text, the College's text messaging service. Subscribing to Seminole State Text will allow you to receive important messages about your academic and financial records, deadlines and campus emergencies.

Student Copy & Print Center
Need to print an essay or copy handouts for a class presentation? There's a Print Shop location on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus for students. The Student Copy & Print Center in building F, room 100, offers self-service copiers and network printers. You can pay for copies and printing with your Blue & Gold Card.

Summer Calendar
Review the Summer Term calendar, and pay attention to deadlines, holidays and other important dates. The College is closed on Fridays during the Summer Term, so enjoy those three-day weekends!
