Beginning Nov. 1, 2013, South Florida State College will begin requiring a $15 non-refundable application fee for all new applicants, re-applicants, previous SFSC students who have not taken classes at SFSC in the past 12 months, and all bachelor’s degree applicants. Students applying as dual enrollment, adult education, community education, or corporate education students will be exempt.
SFSC has an “Open Admissions” policy. This means admission to the college is guaranteed to all eligible students. A regular high school diploma or equivalent that meets Florida standards is required for enrollment in college credit classes.
All applicants, including transfer students, must have an official high school transcript or college transcript on file at SFSC before advisement and registration. A high school diploma is not required for admission to most other programs. Applicants 16 years of age or older and legally out of school may enroll in certificate or continuing education programs.
Students currently enrolled in or students graduated from a home school education program must submit the Home School Affidavit to the Admissions Office.
Students participating in the Early College/Dual Enrollment Program may enroll in a degree or certificate program upon meeting requirements. Some programs have limited space while others have special admission requirements. Due to limited space in some classes and programs, it is strongly advised that you register for classes as early as possible. For information, contact the Advising and Counseling Department.
Placement testing is required of all associate degree-seeking and certificate students. You may be required to take additional tests based on those scores. Though admission is guaranteed, class registrations are handled on a first-come-first-served basis during designated periods.
