College makes list of top schools for Hispanics

Seminole State is ranked No. 11 among the Top 20 4-Year Schools Awarding Associate Degrees, according to Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education Magazine.

Seminole State College of Florida is among the top grantors of associate degrees for Hispanic students in the United States, according to the March 18 edition of Hispanic Outlook in Higher Education Magazine.

The magazine, which annually compiles its Top 50 for state and community colleges, ranked Seminole State No. 11 among the Top 20 Four-Year Schools Awarding Associate Degrees to Hispanic students.

“It’s rewarding to see the growth of Hispanic graduates match the growing number of minority students at Seminole State,” says Dr. Mark Morgan, the College’s associate vice president for  Institutional Effectiveness and Research. “Seminole State’s student body is now equally split, with 50 percent minority students, 50 percent non-minorities. This is a dramatic shift, compared with 30 percent minority students a decade ago.”

Of Seminole State’s 2,126 associate degrees awarded during 2010-11 (the year surveyed), 15 percent were to Hispanic students. Seminole State was one of 12 Florida colleges to make the Top 20 list.

Other recent Seminole State rankings:

  • Top A.A. degree producers (Community College Week): No. 20 in nation
  • Florida College System: Eighth-largest institution
  • Fastest-growing colleges (Community College Week): No. 50 in nation

About Seminole State College: Seminole State operates six sites in Central Florida, including campuses in Altamonte Springs, Heathrow, Oviedo and Sanford/Lake Mary. Seminole State, one of the fastest growing two-year colleges in the nation, has more than 32,000 students.
