Polk State will be closed July 4 & 5

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College will be closed Thursday, July 4, and Friday, July 5, in observance of Independence Day, but registration will remain underway for the fall semester.

Additionally, Saturday classes will take place as scheduled July 6. Please note that Student Services offices, libraries and Teaching Learning Computing Centers (TLCCs) will be closed and reopen Monday, July 8.

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

Students who need assistance while Polk State is closed may email registrar@polk.edu. Please note that staff will be answering general questions during this time, while any requests for changes to records, such as updating residency or removing holds from an account, will be addressed when the College resumes its normal business hours Monday, July 8.

Currently enrolled students may register for summer and fall semesters 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.

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 online at Admission & Aid.

Additionally, 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.
