The first week of college will be exciting and memorable.  To welcome freshmen and celebrate the beginning of the academic journey, Polk State College hosts First Flight Freshmen Welcome.  Incoming freshmen attend this event in early August before school begins with their peers and the entire College community.

Students begin First Flight by participating in a Guided Pathways session hosted by faculty experts from their transfer major.   Students receive a Program Map, which outlines every course they need to complete in sequence by semester, to complete prerequisites and graduate on time.

First Flight Freshmen Welcome culminates with inspirational speakers and engaging activities, enabling incoming students to have fun and make connections with their peers.  Participation has its rewards.  In addition to getting the best possible start, several students are selected at random to receive tuition scholarships.
