Seminole Community College


Has anyone applied to Seminole Community Colleges Nursing program and have received their letter of whether you made it in or not?

i've been checking my mail everyday and haven't received it yet. i can't wait. please post when you get yours!

I most def will! I'm so anxious to get it. I sent the application to my home back in Miami cause I thought it would be sent when I was down there, now i'm back in Orlando and im waiting for my mom to tell me whether she recieved it or not :|

no worries, we have to be positive!!! :)

I just got my acceptance letter today as well as 3 of my friends!!!!! We all applied for the Jan. program and didn't get in, so we are all SUPER EXCITED! Check your mail and good luck!

Oh wow! Ill have to tell my mom to check the mail when she gets off work! I applied for january too and was #5 on the alternate list (if someone dropped out before the deadline I take their place) and no one droppped!! I'm so anxious to find out. If u don't mind me asking what's your program gpa?

Ohmylove- you should get in if you were on the alternate list last time. You need a 3.0 gpa or higher in order to fall into the first round of picks plus whoever finishes their pre-reps first, gets in first, even if that person has a lower gpa then you. Best of luck to you!

I got accepted into Seminole!! I recieved my Letter today, I applied to Broward College's nursing program too, so i'm still waiting for their answer to see which program I want to go to. :)

Hmmm. I applied for the Fall start term at SCC and didn't get in. I was still in classes at the application time, so I didn't think that I would get in anyhow BUT....the denial letter said that they only let in Tier 1 (completed all classes) with a GPA of 3.9 or higher. faron81 - you mentioned a GPA of 3.0 or higher...can I ask, did you not have a 3.9 or a 4.0? Thanks!

Maybe you need a 3.9 or higher if you fall under category 3 (go to scc website to see category info.) since you were still taking classes during the application period. At the information sessions, they said it's basically impossible to get in the program under the 3rd category bc there's so many people applying. I had a 3.2 gpa but I finished all of my pre-reqs last summer. I didn't get selected for the Jan. program bc it was filled with students from the previous Fall and Spring semesters. When I applied last time, there were over 300 applicants for only 100 seats.

The letter stated that they only let in Tier 1 with a 3.9 GPA or higher, which we (some of the ones that didn't get in) thought was kinda crazy that there were 100 students with 3.9 & 4.0's. I emailed the school to find out what is up with that, maybe (hopefully for my sake) it was a typo. Thanks for your quick response back!

Not sure what they mean by Tier 1, but I didn't get in with having a 3.9 or higher. I have a 3.2, my bestfriends is 3.8, and another friends was 3.1 so as you can see, none of us had a 3.9 or above. However, we did finish last summer so that's how we got in plus we fell under category one. Usually nursing manager is pretty good about answering her emails fairly quickly, but keep in mind that the schools probably closed today bc of Memorial day, so it might take a day or two for her to get back with you. Best of luck to you!!

SCC divides the categories into tiers or categories - just depends on which information sheet you have from them. Tier 1 = Category 1 which is successful completion of ALL of the required nursing general education courses and support courses with a re-calculated GPA of 3.0 or better. So you were in Category 1 (Tier 1), but they had stated that only those in Tier 1 with a GPA of 3.9 got in, which is obiviously an incorrect statement. Seems almost as bad of a typo as the colleges that sent out acceptance letters to students and then had to tell them they sent the wrong letter and they didn't really get in. Almost as bad, but not quite!

When I got my denial letter for the Jan. program, it didn't say anything about the gpa of the people that got in. Mine said:

SCC received a large number of qualified applicants for a limited number of seats and therefore I wasn't admitted at this time.......It also stated to reapply for the nursing program or to look into the PTA or RT program. Y

I'm not sure why they worded it that way, but they shouldn't intimidate students who have less than a 3.9 gpa. I knew that applying for the second time that my chances were higher of getting in, but still, there's never any guarantees. Hopefully you can get to the bottom of this and have better luck like I did the second time around.

How is everyone turning in your acceptance letter to tell them you are taking the seat.. I'm not sure if I want to mail it ...theres a fax number on there...

I'm going to fax mine bc with my luck if I sent it by mail, it would probably get lost!!:chuckle

i received my letter on friday and i got accepted!!! i will be faxing my letter and also mailing it scc with delivery confirmation (no signature needed) that way i have proof that i mailed it in on time. can wait to meet you guys at the orientation in june!!

I applied for the first time in April. I was finishing my last two courses and submitted a plan of completion for May 1st. I did finish and my recalculated GPA is a 3.6. All my courses are done. I received my letter last Friday and was denied. My letter also mentioned 3.9 for Category one. I am very upset because I feel that is very misleading on the schools part. The school advertises that they do not have a waiting list, well they might as well because they seem to function that way. All the students that did not get in the last time, seem to get in now, even if your GPA is 2.8! The school chose someone with a lower GPA over me simply because they applied before. I think that the whole thing is a scam! It doesn't matter how good your grades are to get in. What matters is when you applied. I feel that if I had a 4.0 GPA I still would not get in.
