Registration for Spring 2019 Classes at SCF Begins October 1

(Bradenton, Fla., Sept. 18, 2018) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) will open registration for the Spring 2019 term on Oct. 1. Students should sign up as early as possible to get the schedule they want. Financial aid and scholarships are available to eligible students who have completed their online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The college also offers flexible payment plan options to assist students with paying tuition.

SCF has a full schedule of offerings, including music and the arts, science and health professions like nursing, technology and business, and language and literature. The college offers one-year certificates, two-year Associate in Arts and Associate in Science degrees, and four-year Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Applied Science degrees. Check out SCF’s course schedules and catalog to get an idea of all the possibilities.

The new Weekend College allows working adults to get their Associate in Arts degree taking classes only on Friday night and Saturday at SCF Lakewood Ranch. The nursing department is addressing the region’s nursing shortage with the new “BSNin4” program, the only nursing program in the Suncoast region to offer registered nurse (RN) certification in year three and a Bachelor of Science in nursing (BSN) in year four.

SCF’s smaller class sizes and individualized attention help to make students successful. The tuition, about half that of an in-state university, helps save money. SCF’s Associate in Arts credits are transferable to every public university in the state.
