With input from faculty, staff and students and guidance from federal, state and local agencies, the College developed and implemented a plan to help us safely reopen our campuses. As we complete our return to campus, we remain committed to protecting our College and our community and enabling students to study safely to achieve their goals.
In keeping with this commitment, we reconvened our Safe Campus Reopening Tasks Force to help us formulate our plans for Fall Term 2021, which include:
- Returning to full campus operations
- Expanding our face-to-face classes across all campuses and increasing in-person student services and academic support
- Continuing online, remote and hybrid classes and virtual services to make it easier for students to engage and study with us.
We understand that the challenges of COVID-19 still exist for our College community. We strongly encourage all employees and students to get vaccinated. During the 2021-2022 academic year, we will continue to follow the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Florida Department of Health (FDOH) to keep our employees and students as safe as possible and will adjust plans if necessary.
As we look forward to our "next normal," we will maintain our commitment to deliver high-quality, affordable education in Central Florida. Remember, we’re all in this together. GO State. GO Far.
Seminole State is offering a number of different learning options so students can progress safely toward their educational goals.
Traditional face-to-face classes held on campus on set days and times.
Guidance for masks/cloth face coverings, social distancing and other precautions is in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and provide for a safe campus environment.
Masks/cloth face coverings are strongly recommended for all members of our college community (both vaccinated and unvaccinated) when inside classrooms and campus buildings.
Note that some programs with accreditation or licensing standards or which involve clinical settings may have different mask/face covering requirements.
Learn fully online on your own schedule. You do not need to log in to class at a specific time, but you do need to submit assignments and complete exams as required by your instructor.
Remote classes meet virtually via live video for lectures and discussion. Students attend virtual classes on set days and times.
Hybrid classes combine online or remote video instruction with face-to-face classes on campus on specific days and times.
Seminole State Safe
While plans are in place to ensure the safety and well-being of our College community, it’s up to all of us to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and provide for a safe campus environment. Through proper handwashing and personal hygiene, adhering to new guidance related to masks/cloth face coverings and social distancing, and self-monitoring for symptoms, we can protect ourselves and others. For details on each of these safety measures and our campus cleaning and disinfecting protocols, please refer to the Completing our Return plan.
