Fall 2018 classes start, enrollment still underway

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College welcomes students back to its campuses and centers today, and enrollment is still underway for the 12-week session that starts Sept. 17 and the eight-week session that starts Oct. 15.

“We are thrilled for the start of the 2018-2019 academic year,” Polk State President Angela Garcia Falconetti exclaimed. “I encourage students to make the most of the fall 2018 semester by connecting with their peers, professors, and College staff to ensure that they are on a successful path to achieving their goals and degrees.”

Students should also note that there is still time to register for fall 2018 classes with the College’s 12-week and eight-week sessions.

Students currently enrolled at Polk State College 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 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 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 from the College.
