Polk State will be closed for Thanksgiving, students can still enroll and receive assistance by email

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College will be closed Wednesday, November 25, through Sunday, November 29, 2020 for Thanksgiving break, but students can still receive assistance with admission and registration for the Spring 2021 Semester by emailing registrar@polk.edu.

College staff will monitor emails throughout the week and students should expect responses to inquiries within 48 hours. Students should note that staff will be answering general questions during this time. Any requests for changes to records, such as updating residency or removing holds from an account, will be addressed when the College reopens on Monday, November 30.

Students are encouraged to visit Polk State’s 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 can 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 Admission Steps.

Also, students are 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 2021 classes will start on January 6.
