South Florida State College requires 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 and 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. For information, contact the Advising and Counseling Department.
Students who entered 9th grade in a Florida public school in the 2003-04 school year, or any year thereafter, and earned a Florida standard high school diploma, or a student who is serving as an active duty member of any branch of the United States Armed Services will not be required to take the common placement test and will not be required to enroll in developmental education instruction at a Florida College System institution. A student who is not required to take the common placement test and is not required to enroll in development education may opt to be assessed and may opt to enroll in developmental education.
