For the Spring 2021 Semester, Polk State College is offering more hybrid class options that will allow for increased in-person learning opportunities.

Available hybrid classes can be viewed in Passport when students select “HYBRID” under “Alternative Instructional Methods.” In Passport, it is also important that students read the course descriptions that explain class formats and expectations before registering for courses.

Online courses are also available in a variety of formats to fit students’ schedules, including classes that have regularly scheduled meetings and others that allow students to complete coursework at their own pace. Additional information is available about classes in their syllabi.

Spring 2021 classes will start on January 6.
