Enrollment starts for the summer and fall semesters today, April 2, with fall registration taking place earlier than ever before to provide students with the greatest availability of courses they need.
Students who have completed 30 credit hours or more and qualify for priority registration may enroll for summer and fall classes today. Students can check their credit-hour status and whether they qualify for priority registration on PASSPORT.
Prospective students will be able to register for summer courses on April 9. Fall registration for all students will start on June 4.
The College will host an open house on each campus. Open house on the Winter Haven Campus will take place April 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in WST 126 and 127 at 999 Ave. H N.E., and open house on the Lakeland Campus will take place April 26 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in LTB 1100 at 3425 Winter Lake Road.
The summer semester begins May 9 and the fall semester starts August 20.
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 new students must submit an online application to Polk State. Information on how to complete orientation and register for classes is included in the College’s admission letter, as well as online at the Admission Steps.
Students may complete orientation online through Admission & Aid, where they can also take their “personal snapshot” – an academic advising tool that allows students to assess their abilities in math, reading, and writing, as well as responsibilities outside the classroom, such as work and families.
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.
