Polk State College welcomes more than 10,000 students back to its campuses and centers for the Spring 2018 semester.
“I am thrilled to embark on the New Year for the first time together and I hope you are equally excited for the spring semester,” President Angela Garcia Falconetti said in a message to students on the first day of classes Friday.
“I look forward to seeing each of you on our campuses this semester as we work together toward making Polk State the first choice for college in Polk County.”
For the 16-week and Fast-track 1 sessions, Friday is the last day to add fully online or hybrid classes, while Thursday, Jan. 11, is the last day to drop classes for a 100 percent refund. Financial aid disbursements for these sessions will began Friday, Jan. 19.
There is still time, however, to register for 12-week and Fast-track 2 sessions, which begin Feb. 5 and March 5, respectively.
Students are encouraged to visit Polk State’s online Admission Steps, which walk through the registration process and answer frequently asked questions.
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.
Students can pay for classes through PASSPORT and should regularly check their accounts, as well as their College emails, for important registration and financial aid information.
