Seminole State College

College Degree Finder

Seminole State College of Florida, previously known as Seminole Community College, and often referred to as “Seminole State”, is a public, coeducational state college located in the city of Sanford, Florida. Seminole State is a member of the Florida College System, a group of twenty-eight public state colleges and community colleges that together represent over 920,000 students. The college participates in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Region VIII (Suncoast Conference) in softball, baseball and women’s golf.

The college was established in 1965 as Seminole Junior College and then in 1971 its name was changed to Seminole Community College. In 2009, its name was yet again changed, this time to Seminole State College of Florida to reflect its new status as a bachelor’s degree granting institution. In 2009, Seminole State launched its first state-approved bachelor’s degree program, the Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS) in interior design. Later that year, the college was officially recognized by the SCC Board of Trustees as a “state” college and its name was changed from Seminole Community College to Seminole State College of Florida.

Today Seminole State enrolls over 30,000 students a year, and is one of the largest employers in the region. The college includes four campuses, all based in Seminole County, with its central campus located in the city of Sanford, and its three satellite campuses located in Altamonte Springs, Oviedo and Heathrow. The Oviedo campus was established in spring of 2001, the Heathrow campus six years later in 2007, and the Altamonte Spring campus opened a year later in 2008.
