Supporting Hispanic Students

We are committed to your success inside and outside the classroom, and as a Hispanic-Serving Institution, we aim to enhance the visibility and involvement of the Hispanic community at the College. Seminole State offers resources and programs that bring our diverse student population together and foster collaboration among students, staff and faculty.

Academic Advising and Counseling

Our dedicated team of academic advisors will help you select classes and stay on track for graduation. English and Spanish speaking advisors are available to assist you virtually or in person. Connect with a counselor ››

Financial Aid and Scholarships

Don’t let the cost of college hold you back. Our tuition is about half what you’d pay at a state university, plus we award more than $30 million in financial aid each year and the Foundation for Seminole State College provided over $1 million in scholarship and emergency assistance last year.

Free Services and Support

Not only will you get academic support like free tutoring, free practice tests and free laptops to borrow every semester, Seminole State students also get free transportation to all campuses through the LYNX bus system, free unlimited telehealth service (24/7 online access to healthcare providers for non-emergency medical issues) and support through Destination Graduation – a program with the Heart of Florida United Way which connects students to the resources they need to stay in school, including food and clothes.
