Florida Civic Literacy Examination (FCLE)
Students are encouraged to take the Florida Civic Literacy Examination (FCLE) while they are currently enrolled in, or upon recent completion of, AMH 2020 or POS 2041. Recent high school graduates who took and passed the FCLE in high school are exempt from the assessment portion of the civics requirement but must still satisfy the course requirement. An official high school transcript must be on file and notate successful completion of the FCLE.
As of Fall 2023, the FCLE is now available to students who are currently enrolled in a dual enrollment program at Seminole State College.
To schedule an appointment to take the FCLE, contact the Assessment and Testing Center.
