Student Learning Outcomes
Statement of Intention
The Seminole State College experience provides a holistic framework to help students prepare for their career fields and to navigate their daily lives as collaborative members of the community. Beyond imparting formal knowledge, the goal of college is to help students engage with the world in all its diversity. A Seminole State education is thus intended to be a transformation, allowing students to become the fullest and brightest expressions of themselves.
