Transfer Students Steps to Enroll
Each year, hundreds of students transfer to Seminole State College from other colleges or universities. The transfer process is easy: Simply follow the steps below. If you have any questions, contact the Admissions Office.
You have several options for applying to Seminole State College:
- Apply online.
- Download and print the Seminole State Application for Admission.
- Obtain a printed application from Student Services on the Sanford/Lake Mary, Altamonte Springs, Oviedo or Heathrow Campuses.
Verify your residency status.
The Affidavit for Florida Residency determines your eligibility for lower in-state tuition rates. If you submit a paper Application for Admission (not online), please download the form or pick one up in Student Services on any campus. The last day to submit this documentation is the day before each semester begins.
Submit your high school and all college transcripts.
Official, final transcripts must be sent to the College at: Seminole State College of Florida, Enrollment Services, 100 Weldon Blvd., Sanford, FL 32773. View a list of the most commonly transferred colleges in Florida and instructions on how to order your transcripts. If you attended school outside of the U.S., you will need to have your official transcripts translated and evaluated by a NACES approved company, such as World Education Services or SpanTran.
