Polk State College is closed for winter break, but enrollment is still underway for the spring semester.
College offices will reopen Tuesday, January 2, and classes start Friday, January 5.
Students are encouraged to visit Polk State’s online Admission Steps, which walk through the registration process and answer frequently asked questions.
Students who have additional questions while College offices are closed should email Director of Student Enrollment Services and Registrar Kathy Bucklew at firstname.lastname@example.org for further assistance.
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.
For prospective new students, an online application must be submitted to Polk State. Information on how to complete orientation and register for classes is included in the College’s admission letter, as well as online at Admission Steps.
Students may complete orientation online through Admission & Aid, where they can also take their “personal snapshot” – an academic advising tool that allows students to assess their abilities in math, reading, and writing, as well as responsibilities outside the classroom, such as work and families.
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.
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.
