Fall classes start Aug. 25 at Seminole State College of Florida, and it’s not too late to apply for admission.
New students who submit applications by Aug. 15 should have time to complete the steps to enroll and get the class schedule they want this fall, according to Seminole State’s Admissions Office.
"We’re encouraging students to apply by the priority deadline (Aug. 15), because classes will fill up fast, and we want them to have the best selection," says Pamela Mennechey, associate vice president of student recruitment and enrollment. "But students who miss this deadline will still be able to apply and register. The sooner they apply, the better."
To start the admissions process or to register for classes, visit seminolestate.edu/apply-register. Open Enrollment for Fall Term begins July 23.
Students who need help with any part of the admission or registration process, can speak to a specialist in Student Services on any Seminole State campus, or contact the Admissions Office for assistance.
This fall, Seminole State also is adding more academic options for students. Here’s what’s new…
Starting with Fall Term 2014, the Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degrees in Information Systems Technology and Construction will be offered fully online. Most of the courses have been online since 2011. However, now all courses for these degrees are online.
"We understand that many of our students need options that allow them to take courses on their schedules," says Dr. Lisa Valentino, associate vice president for Academic Services, which includes eLearning. "Expanding our online degrees achieves our goal of making education more accessible."
In keeping with that goal, core courses for the B.S. in Business and Information Management, which were previously offered only at the Heathrow Campus, will now be available at the Oviedo and Altamonte Springs campuses as well.
More than 1,000 students were enrolled in the College’s five baccalaureate programs in 2013-14.
In addition to the online bachelor’s degrees, the College's Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees in Fire Science Technology and Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management will be offered online this fall.
The College offers nearly 40 online degree and certificate programs.
Seminole State will offer 198 degrees, certificates and programs this fall. Here’s an overview of some of the new programs and courses for 2014-15 academic year.
Other new courses include:
Also new this fall is the 12-Week (12W) Session, which gives students another option, with classes starting in September. The 12W Session is in addition to the Full, A and B sessions already in place. Classes in the 12W Session start Sept. 15.
