Flex Start Classes

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 complement 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.
