For the Fall Term 2020, we are offering online and remote courses. Remote courses show a day and time, and will meet virtually via live video. A limited number of labs, math, nursing, public safety programs, performing arts, automotive, HVAC, plumbing, and some language courses will resume on campus and are notated in the course schedule. For more information, view class types.
Career/Technical Program Testing
Depending on the career/technical program, Seminole State College administers the Test for Adult Basic Education (TABE) to non-exempt career certificate students (previously named PSAV). Normally, the TABE Survey, Level D (either Form 11 or 12) is provided. Completion of a prescribed remediation program is required prior to re-testing for career programs.
Minimum basic skills in mathematics, language and reading are defined in each career program description adopted under Rule 6A-6.0571. The current catalog program descriptions provide minimum required TABE scale scores to earn a certificate by program.
Students required to take the TABE are:
- First-time-in-program, non-exempt students who designate themselves as certificate-seeking in a career program of 450 hours or more. Such students must complete the TABE examination within the first six weeks of admission into the program.
- Students whose TABE scores are more than two years old and have not been used for placement.
- Students whose TABE scores are more than two years old and who have had a break in their enrollment of more than one year.
Academic advisors are available to consult with students regarding the exemptions or alternate ways to satisfy this requirement.
