Career Pathways

A college degree may be closer than you think!

As a student of a Sarasota or Manatee County school, you may have taken one or more career, technical or academy classes at your high school or technical college.  Through a career pathways articulation agreement between State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) and the local school districts, students can receive college credit for the work they have completed. 

If you continue your career path within the same field, the credits that you earn now as a high school student, can be applied to a Certificate and/or an Associate in Science Degree program at SCF.  

You pay no tuition for the credits you receive through this agreement.  Details of the agreement can be found in the "Career Pathways Articulation Agreement".
