Apply and Register
OK, so you've already applied and been accepted to Seminole State, but maybe you haven't registered for all of your classes yet. There's still time to register for Spring Term. Classes are still available for the 12-Week (12W) and B Sessions, so register while you can.
You're a Seminole State Raider now! Check the team schedules to see when Raider baseball, softball and women's golf will be in action this term. Admission to home events is free for students with a valid Seminole State ID.
Blue & Gold Card
The Blue & Gold Card is Seminole State's student ID. It not only serves as identification but also provides access to services on campus. You need your Blue & Gold Card to purchase books, borrow library materials, receive a parking decal and more. You'll also have 24/7 access to your Blue & Gold Card account online. Visit Card Services on any campus to receive your card.
Purchase textbooks, new Seminole State gear and more. For your convenience, the campus bookstores will have extended hours during the first week of classes. Check the bookstore website for more details.
Print a map before you arrive and familiarize yourself with it. If you can’t find your class when you arrive, don’t be afraid to ask for help. Remember, other students may be looking for their classes, too. Faculty and staff will be happy to point the way.
To view or print your class schedule, log in to MySeminoleState, the student portal, and click on Student Center. Computers are available on each campus to print your schedules.
Seminole State Alert is the online go-to source for information in an immediate life-threatening or serious situation involving safety on any Seminole State campus. Students also should know the number to the College's Emergency Hotline: 407.708.2290. We suggest you add it to your contacts, so you'll have access to emergency information when you're not near a computer.
eServices assists students with several aspects of the academic experience, including admissions, advising and registration. With eServices, advising appointments are available via phone or Skype and can be scheduled through the eAdvising Calendar. In addition to advising, eServices offers eForms, which allows students to save time by submitting some forms electronically.

Nature's Table Cafe

Students must have a permit to park on campus. Present your Blue & Gold Card and your license plate number at any Cashiers Office to obtain a free parking decal. Students must park in designated student parking lots, which have white-lined parking spaces and are indicated by gray markings on the campus maps. Students who violate campus parking rules may be fined and/or have their cars towed, so make sure you're aware of the College's parking and traffic regulations.
Safety and Security
The safety of our students, faculty, staff and visitors is a top priority at Seminole State. Students are encouraged to download LifeLine Response Enterprise, Seminole State's free personal safety mobile app, for easy access to emergency assistance. The Safety and Security Department also has offices on each campus, and officers are trained to assist in emergency situations on campus. Visit the Safety and Security website to find emergency phone numbers, tips for staying safe on campus, campus security policies and other important safety information.

Tobacco Free College
Seminole State became a tobacco free college in Fall 2013 as part of a wellness initiative that includes a proposed wellness center at the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus.
