After Graduation


The official degree is awarded when all graduation requirements are completed including, but not limited to:

  • Cumulative and overall GPA 2.0 or higher is earned
  • All financial obligations to SCF have been fulfilled

After the College has certified the degrees, diplomas will be mailed to the address listed on your application for graduation approximately 6-8 weeks after the last day of the graduating semester.

Financial Aid

If you have received federal student loans during your tenure at SCF, you must complete exit counseling.

The website provides important information about the Federal Family Educational and Direct Loan Student Loan programs, including estimated payments under various repayment options. Please review the NSLDS website referenced above carefully.

Once you have reviewed the information, please complete the required exit counseling at

If you have any other questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at:
(941) 752-5037, (941) 408-1407phone icon, or


Official transcripts maybe be requested by the graduate online. If they are ordered by the last day of the term and marked "Hold until degree/certificate is posted on transcript" the degree will be verified, certified, if eligible, and mailed within three business days after grades have been posted to the student's transcripts.

Program/Major Change Deadlines

If you are continuing your studies toward another degree at SCF you must change your program for the next semester by the deadline published in the academic calendar. Since you are graduating in your current program the college will change you to non-degree seeking, unless you request a program change. Be aware this may affect your financial aid eligibility.
