Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College will be closed Wednesday, November 23, through Sunday, November 27, 2022, for Thanksgiving break. Classes will not be held Saturday, November 26. The College and collegiate high schools will reopen on Monday, November 28.

College staff will be monitoring emails to the addresses below throughout the week and students should expect responses to inquiries within 48 business 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.

Students who need advising assistance should email onlineadvisinga@polk.edu (for students with last names beginning A-M) or onlineadvisingz@polk.edu (for students with last names beginning N-Z).

Students who need assistance with admissions should email admissionsa@polk.edu (for students with last names beginning A-M) or admissionsz@polk.edu (for students with last names beginning N-Z).

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 2023 classes will start on January 9.
