Tradition! Pride! Spirit!


As a graduate of Manatee Junior College, Manatee Community College or The State College of Florida, you can be proud of your “Manatee” experience. SCF is a vibrant academic community, thanks to our talented and dedicated faculty, our loyal alumni, and our generous supporters. Together we’ve built a top-tier institution that continues to stimulate and enrich the lives of our students, and the life of our community.

Your alma mater has grown to more than 44,000 alumni living world-wide. Nationally, SCF was named among the top 50 nursing associate degree producers and top 100 associate degree producers in all disciplines. Our pass rates on certification exams for our health profession graduates exceed national and state averages. SCF was one of 25 two-year colleges chosen as being among the world’s best film schools. And two of our recent graduates transferred to Ivy League universities: Harvard University and the University of Pennsylvania. SCF is poised to embrace a future that will afford our students and community more opportunities than ever before. Our growth is moving in an exciting direction. To sustain our growth and success rates, we’ll need both new and renovated facilities, new and upgraded equipment. We invite you to participate in ensuring our ability to provide affordable, accessible and high-quality education to those who follow in your “Manatee” foot steps.
