Flex Start Classes

Flex Start classes are offered within each semester to provide as many scheduling options as possible. Options include:

  • One 12-week session
  • Two eight-week sessions
  • Three five-week sessions

These self-contained, accelerated sessions offer the same course material as a traditional 16-week class in a condensed format. Students can add these classes as a compliment to their semester-long course load or register exclusively for Flex Start classes. Courses are available at SCF’s campuses in Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, Venice and online.
