Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College will be closed Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for Thanksgiving, but students will be able to receive assistance with questions regarding admission or registration for spring 2019 classes by emailing

College staff will monitor emails throughout the week and students should expect responses to their inquires within 48 hours. College offices will reopen Monday, Nov. 26.

Students are encouraged to visit Polk State’s online Admission Steps, which walk through the registration process and answer frequently asked questions.

Currently enrolled students may register through PASSPORT. They should also check PASSPORT for possible holds on their accounts that may prevent them from registering so that those holds can be resolved.

Prospective students must submit a free online application to Polk State.  Information on how to complete orientation and register for classes is included in email communications after the student applies, as well as in the online Admission Steps.

Students may complete orientation online through the  Admission & Aid page, Students will find answers to frequently asked questions about topics including placement testing (PERT), financial aid, paying for college, establishing Florida residency, submitting transcripts, and more.

Students are also encouraged to begin the financial aid process as early as possible. The first step is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Assistance completing the FAFSA is available through the Office of Student Financial Services.

Throughout the registration and financial aid process, students should regularly check PASSPORT and their College email accounts for important registration and financial aid information from the College.

Spring 2019 classes begin Jan. 4.
