Articulation Agreements

State of Florida Articulation Agreement

Seminole State College Associate in Arts degree graduates are guaranteed the following rights under the Statewide Articulation Agreement (State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.024):

  1. Admission to one of the state universities, except to limited-access programs that have additional admission requirements.
  2. Acceptance of at least 60 credit hours by the state universities.
  3. Adherence to university requirements and policies based on the catalog in effect at the time the student first entered a state or community college, provided the student maintains continuous enrollment.
  4. Transfer of equivalent courses under the Statewide Course Numbering system.
  5. Acceptance by the state universities of credit earned in accelerated programs (e.g., CLEP, AP, Dual Enrollment, Early Admission and International Baccalaureate).
  6. No additional general education core requirements.
  7. Advanced knowledge of selection criteria for limited-access programs.
  8. Equal opportunity with native university students to enter limited-access programs.

Should any of the above guaranteed rights be denied, students should contact Carlene McNeil, Director, Curriculum, Credentialing & Academic Scheduling at 407.708.2683 or mcneilc@seminolestate.edu.

Several types of articulation agreements between local school districts and the College, as well as between the College and bachelor degree-granting institutions, benefit Seminole State students.

Seminole State also articulates college credit for students who have industry-recognized certifications in designated areas that are related to programs of study offered by the College. These agreements are consistent with the Florida statewide Gold Standard Articulation Agreements for industry certifications.

Florida's State University System (SUS)

Associate in Arts (A.A.): Florida Statute 1007.23 and State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.024 assure certain rights to A.A. graduates. An A.A. degree from any institution in the Florida College System, including Seminole State, guarantees admission to an institution in Florida's State University System (SUS). However, it does not guarantee acceptance to a particular university or a selected, special or limited-access program. A.A. degree recipients compete for admission into these programs.

Associate in Science (A.S.): A statewide agreement allows transfer into an SUS institution for specified A.S. graduates. In addition, A.S. degree programs articulate into the University of Central Florida's Bachelor of Applied Science Program, which is offered at UCF's regional campus on the Seminole State Sanford/Lake Mary Campus. Designated A.S. programs also articulate into specific B.S. programs offered by Seminole State.

DirectConnect to UCF

DirectConnect to UCF, which was introduced in 2006, is a guaranteed way to gain admission to the University of Central Florida for students who complete an A.A. or A.S. degree at Seminole State. This is consistent with Seminole State and UCF policy. Limited- and restricted-access programs may require an additional admission process. Contact UCF for additional information on DirectConnect.

Independent Colleges and Universities

Articulation agreements between the Florida Board of Education and the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF) also benefit A.A. graduates. For more information on ICUF schools visit the ICUF website. Seminole State also has articulation agreements with private institutions that are not members of ICUF.

Other Agreements

Statewide articulation agreements also exist to award credit for completion of specified career certificate programs as well as for specified industry certifications. Seminole State has articulation agreements with individual institutions located in Florida and other states. Agreements are also in place with technical centers in the Central Florida region. For more information, visit the Seminole State College articulation website.
