Resources for New Student Orientation and Registration
Welcome to Seminole State College! The first step in completing New Student Orientation is the Student Welcome. After the Student Welcome, First Time in College Students (FTIC) must sign up to attend a Registration Lab (in person or virtual) where they will meet with an advisor to assist with registration. Transfer students must sign up for an advising appointment with their assigned advisor at the conclusion of the Student Welcome.
Below are resources to help refresh your memory about what you learned during Orientation. If you have any questions, you can reach out to your assigned advisor for assistance. Your assigned advisor can be found by logging into your MySeminoleState account and clicking on the Advisor Tile.
New Student Orientation Presentation
If there is something you saw during the presentation that you’d like to review, you can view the presentation again.
How to Register for Classes
If you are still having trouble, please feel free to come into any campus and see a student success specialist who can assist you with the registration process.
Financial Aid Checklist
It’s very important to make sure you filled out the correct FAFSA and have accepted your aid and deferred your fees when you register. Please review the Financial Aid Checklist for your next steps. You can also see more on the Financial Aid website.
Blue & Gold Student ID Card and Parking Pass:
Your student ID can be used for a variety of services on and off campus. Before you can get your student ID, you must be enrolled/registered in a course. For additional information, visit https://www.seminolestate.edu/idcard/remote-cards.
You must request your parking pass online and pick it up at the Cashier's window at any campus. Follow the instructions at seminolestate.edu/security/parking/student-information.
Don't be late to a class again! Use one of our interactive campus maps if you are new to campus.
Canvas is the Learning Management System for online courses. Even if you are in a course that is not online, your professor may utilize Canvas to have you upload assignments and keep track of grades. It can also be used as a communication tool.
Student Advising Resource Center
All degree-seeking students will be placed in an Advising Resources Center located in Canvas. On this page, you can find important information related to your academic success for your specific program. You can also communicate with your assigned advisor directly through Canvas. We encourage you to log in to Canvas to communicate with your assigned advisor as your primary means of communication.
