Academic Advisement

Associate in Arts Degree Advisement
For students planning to transfer to one of Florida’s state universities, the Associate in Arts (AA) degree is the transferable degree. The AA degree contains the General Education portion (lower division) of the bachelor’s (BA) degree. Therefore, a student can only earn one AA degree.

The Advisement Center, in R-201, acts as an information and referral center with timely and accurate information for students regarding course planning and Associate in Arts degree graduation requirements. Advisors assist AA students with planning their programs of study for transfer to a four-year university. Students wishing to transfer should also obtain additional academic advisement from the upper division school to which they expect to apply.

All students must view their degree audit via eSantaFe each semester and are encouraged to meet with an advisor for proper course selection prior to registration.


Hours: 8:00 a.m. to­ 4:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday and Friday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  Appointments are encouraged. R-201 (NW Campus); 352-395-5503. Extended hours are offered prior to the start of classes in August and January. Students may make an appointment or be seen on a walk-in basis until 4 p.m. each day.

Advisors are also available at the Blount, Andrews, Watson, Davis, Perry and Kirkpatrick centers.

AA students may elect to participate in one of our SF2University articulation programs: SF2FAMU, SF2UNF, SF2USF, or SF2UWF. These agreements provide guaranteed admission to students who have received an AA degree. Students may need to meet additional program requirements for certain programs of study. See an academic advisor or visit our website for more information.


Career and Technical Education Advisement

Students interested in any of the Career and Technical Education programs, which have selective admission requirements, are urged to contact the appropriate program advisor as early as possible. Admission to the college does not guarantee entry into any program that has selective admission requirements.

Standard high school graduation, a high school equivalency certificate (GED) issued by a state board of education, or HiSET score is required of all applicants seeking admission to college credit programs and courses at SF. For information on admissions, please visit our website at
