Academic Options

At Seminole State, you will find many options for your academic future:

Applied Technology Diploma (A.T.D.) - A college credit program designed to prepare students for employment.

Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree - The Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree is designed for students with clearly defined career goals. The A.A.S. prepares graduates for immediate entry into a specialized technical or semi-professional career field where students can achieve expertise and mastery of practical performance. These degrees enable graduates to be financially self-sufficient. These programs strengthen the region economically and prepare individuals for rewarding careers. Central Florida's major employers participate as advisory board members, helping to design curricula so that graduates are able to integrate technical skills, critical thinking, leadership and academic coursework. The A.A.S. is not intended to be a transfer program. However, in selected cases, some state colleges will accept the A.A.S. into a general baccalaureate degree. Note: At this time, the only A.A.S. degree program being offered at Seminole State is Automotive Technology.  Students should consult with the career program advisor for the Automotive Department.

Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree - A two-year college credit degree program that is designed for transfer. The general A.A. degree is awarded by state/community colleges upon completion of 60 credit hours of study including the completion of at least 36 hours of general education coursework. Students planning to transfer from Seminole State to another college or university should complete the requirements for the general A.A. degree. Like all colleges in the Florida College System, Seminole State awards the general Associate in Arts degree. The State of Florida Articulation Coordinating Committee establishes and annually updates a list of common prerequisites for every baccalaureate degree program within the Florida state university and state college systems. Please note that these common prerequisites are for information purposes ONLY and are not a substitute for academic advising.

Associate in Science (A.S.) degree - Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees are designed to prepare graduates for immediate entry into careers that enable graduates to be financially self-sufficient. These programs strengthen the region economically and prepare individuals for rewarding careers. Central Florida's major employers participate as advisory board members, helping to design curricula so that graduates are able to integrate technical skills, critical thinking, leadership and academic coursework. In addition to entering the workforce, the A.S. degree provides students the option to continue their education in a bachelor's degree program at Seminole State or one of the state universities such as University of Central Florida (UCF) while working in their career fields. Students planning to transfer into a baccalaureate program should consult with a baccalaureate degree specialist.

Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.S.) degree - A four-year college credit degree program designed to prepare students for advancement within specific workforce sectors.

Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree - A four-year degree (typically 120 credit hours, with some exceptions) with a scientific emphasis.

Certificate of Professional Preparation (C.P.P.) - A college credit certificate designed to prepare baccalaureate degree holders for licensure, certification, credentialing, examinations or other demonstrations of competency necessary for entry into professional occupations.

College Credit (C.C.) certificate - These short-term programs range from 12 to 36 credits and are designed as stepping stones to an A.S. degree and a career. As students complete each program, they receive a college credit certificate which documents the skills they've learned and enhances their marketability as they advance toward the A.S. degree.

Institutional Credit (E.P.I.) - A competency-based program that provides baccalaureate degree holders in a field other than education the opportunity to become certified K-12 teachers.

Post Secondary Adult Vocational (P.S.A.V.) certificate - Post Secondary Adult Vocational (P.S.A.V.) certificates are typically one year in length or less. Some P.S.A.V. programs may be as short as 165 contact hours. P.S.A.V. programs are not for college credit. P.S.A.V. programs prepare graduates for immediate entry into specific skill-based occupations such as air conditioning technician and automotive technician. In many cases, the vocational certificate graduate may transition into related A.S. degree programs at Seminole State.
