Five Steps to Get Started
To sign up for the Adult High School Program, please follow the five steps outlined below. If you have any questions, please email us or call us at 407.708.2153 and we will walk you through the process.
- Gather Transcripts and Apply: Request an official transcript from your high school and bring it with you, along with a copy of any FCAT or EOC scores. Submit them, along with an Adult Education Application, to the Adult Education Advising Office on our Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, located in building B, room 113.
Note: Students who have been expelled from school or referred to an alternative education program must call 407.708.2501 to make an appointment with the Adult Education manager before being considered for admission.
- Take the Placement Test: Due to a change in our policy, most new Adult High School applicants will not need to take a placement test, as their reading, writing and math skills will be evaluated based on their submitted transcripts. Those students who are required to take a placement test will be given instructions at the time of application.
- Register: After applying, you will meet with an advisor or student success specialist to evaluate your transcripts, review your test scores and to get placed in appropriate courses.
- Pay Tuition: Once you are registered, you must pay tuition to reserve your place in those courses. Tuition for the Adult High School is $30 per semester and can be paid on campus at the Cashiers Office in building A. You can also pay online through your MySeminoleState Student Center. The due date will show on your course schedule printout and on your MySeminoleState Student Center. Be sure to pay your tuition on time to avoid being dropped from your courses.
- Attend Orientation: Orientation is a mandatory meeting for all new Adult High School students. Your orientation date will be scheduled with an advisor or specialist when you apply. Please see below for upcoming orientation dates and information.
Orientation is mandatory for all new students. At orientation, we will give an overview of our program, discuss success strategies and answer any questions you may have. You can view or download our current Adult High School orientation presentation. You can also download our orientation handouts like the New Student Checklist and our Career Academies information sheet.
