Seminole State offers free assistance with admissions, FAFSA with Fast Pass to Fall event

Fast Pass to Fall will be held in the E. Ann McGee Student Center on the College’s Sandford/ Lake Mary Campus (SC-203).

To help ease the sometimes-daunting college admissions process, Seminole State College of Florida’s Office of Admissions will host Fast Pass to Fall, an event designed to provide one-on-one assistance to students who want to complete the entire college application process during one visit.

Fast Pass to Fall is an open house-style event geared toward students who wish to attend Seminole State during Fall Term 2018, but have not yet applied. The event will also cater to students who have applied and need help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and forms to seek or prove Florida residency. All prospective students are welcome, with emphasis on first-time-in-college students.

“We want to take the guesswork out of completing the college application process and help out with filling out forms like the FAFSA, so that students leave excited and prepared to face their first semester as Raiders,” says Pamela Mennechey, associate vice president of student recruitment and enrollment. “Seminole State understands that transitioning into college can be an overwhelming experience, so we invite students and their families to come to this event to make their admission process faster and easier. …In one visit, students will go from ‘applicant’ to ‘accepted.’”

Fast Pass to Fall will be held in the E. Ann McGee Student Center on the College’s Sandford/ Lake Mary Campus (SC-203).

There will be three opportunities for students to attend the event, as follows:

  • Wednesday, July 11, Noon - 6 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 18, 9 a.m.- 1 p.m.
  • Wednesday, July 25, Noon - 4 p.m.

According to Mennechey, to complete the entire admissions process in one visit, students must bring the necessary paperwork. For information about what to bring, contact Admissions Specialist Summer Pessatore at 407.708.2134 or visit www.seminolestate.edu/registrar/residency-info.

“Remember, there is no appointment necessary, and this event is open to anyone interested in attending Seminole State,” says Mennechey.
