State College of Florida-Manatee-Sarasota (SCF), located in Bradenton, Florida, is a public institution established in 1957. Its campus is primarily suburban with a setting that allows for a focus on learning within close proximity to the amenities and cultural opportunities of the greater Tampa Bay area. SCF has grown to offer a comprehensive academic portfolio, including associate and bachelor's degree programs, with a noted emphasis on health sciences and a variety of STEM fields. While the college maintains an open-door admissions policy, suggesting a non-competitive application process, the institution upholds a commitment to academic rigor and quality education. The campus does not provide on-campus housing, thereby characterizing its student population as primarily commuters. SCF does not possess a particularly prominent athletic program; therefore, sports and team dynamics do not significantly define the campus atmosphere.

State College of Florida Manatee Sarasota has an open admission policy which permits enrollment by any high school graduate or GED holding student.  3,587 students are enrolled on a full time basis, and 5,001 attend part time. In-state tuition for 2022/2023, excluding room and board, is $2,365 plus fees of $709.
