Teachers, Seminole State offers the courses you need!

Seminole State is accredited and approved by the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) to offer college level credits that individuals may use to renew their teaching certificate, reinstate their teaching certificate, or move from a temporary certificate to a professional teaching certificate.
