Spring 2021 classes begin but it’s not too late to enroll at Polk State

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College welcomes students to the Spring 2021 Semester today and enrollment continues to take place for 12-week and eight-week Fastrack 2 sessions beginning February 3 and March 8, respectively.

Current students can register for classes in Passport. Prospective students can submit a free online application to the College.

Polk State remains in Phase II of its Return to Campus Plan, with most classes taking place in hybrid and online formats. Services including advising, registration, and financial aid are available remotely and in-person by visiting the Lakeland Technology Building (LTB) or Winter Haven Administration Building (WAD).

Students, employees, and visitors continue to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Return to Campus Plan guidelines closely, including wearing cloth face coverings and practicing social distancing.

Students should only come to campus if necessary and should monitor their health daily. Individuals who are ill or experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms should stay home, contact a healthcare provider, contact their instructors and supervisors, and complete the College’s COVID-19 self-reporting tool.

Polk State has compiled a list of resources for learning in the online and hybrid environments and encourages students to access services remotely.
