Academic Advising and Counseling
Counselors, Educational Advisors, Career Program Advisors, and Student Success Specialists play an integral role in empowering students to achieve success by actively supporting their educational goals from admission to the completion of their declared program of study. Upon admission to the College, students are assigned a dedicated educational advisor based on the student's educational pathway. The following services are offered on all Seminole State campuses:
- Academic Advising: Includes the interpretation of test results and information on program requirements, assistance with course selection, explanation of college support systems and assistance with career planning, study skills, educational planning and graduation audits.
- Educational Planning: Developing an educational pathway is a partnership between the student and their assigned educational advisor. This pathway ensures that students are able to accomplish their educational and professional goals in a personalized, individualized and efficient manner.
- Career Planning: Educational Advisors serve as conduits to aligning class curriculum, educational pathways, and professional goals to ensure that the career aspirations of all students are accomplished in a seamless, integrated manner.
- Mental Health Counseling: Includes the ability to assist students when the stress of personal problems hinders academic achievement. Assistance can be provided for such personal issues as anxiety, depression, interpersonal relationships, stress, grief, self-esteem and more. Students may schedule individual appointments. Counseling contacts are kept confidential. Seminole State College of Florida partners with several community partners to provide counseling services to currently enrolled students.
Faculty members are encouraged to refer students who may need these services to the counseling staff. Workshops on study skills techniques, test anxiety and learning styles are also available to assist students in developing the required skills to be successful in completing their courses.
