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.
