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):
- Admission to one of the state universities, except to limited-access programs that have additional admission requirements.
- Acceptance of at least 60 credit hours by the state universities.
- 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.
- Transfer of equivalent courses under the Statewide Course Numbering system.
- Acceptance by the state universities of credit earned in accelerated programs (e.g., CLEP, AP, Dual Enrollment, Early Admission and International Baccalaureate).
- No additional general education core requirements.
- Advanced knowledge of selection criteria for limited-access programs.
- Equal opportunity with native university students to enter limited-access programs.
Should any of the above guaranteed rights be denied, students should contact Pam Ocasek, Articulation Officer at 407.708.2189 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org .
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.
Section 1007.23, Florida Statutes, establishes statewide articulation agreements and helps to facilitate the seamless transition of students across and among Florida’s educational entities. This supports the Department’s Next Generation Areas of Focus effort Number 4 —“to expand opportunities for postsecondary degrees and certificates.” These agreements are intended to be a minimum guarantee of articulated credit and do not preclude institutions from granting additional credit based on local agreements.
Seminole State also articulates college credit for:
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.
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.
