Open registration for the spring semester at Polk State College begins Nov. 7 at 8 a.m.
Students currently enrolled at the College may register for the spring term online through the College’s Passport.
Registration for dual-enrollment students – that is students who are taking college classes while still in high school – will begin Nov. 14 at 8 a.m.
Prospective new students should first submit an online application to the College at www.polk.edu/futurestudents/admission/. After doing so, they will be scheduled for an orientation session, during which they will register for their first classes.
A complete, step-by-step guide to the admissions process is available at the College’s website, under the “Admissions” tab. The guide provides students with information such as how to apply for financial aid, how to request their transcripts, and when to schedule placement testing.
The website also provides an online course catalog, which will help in choosing and planning a course of study.
Kathy Bucklew, director of student enrollment services and registrar on the Winter Haven campus, said it behooves students to register for classes earlier rather than later. A 7 percent increase in enrollment is expected for the spring, meaning more students will be seeking seats in classes.
“With the unprecedented growth of the student body, it is more important than ever to apply and register early. Students get the best schedules and have the opportunity to plan and prepare for the start of the year,” she said.
Polk State College serves more than 20,000 students on multiple campuses. It offers bachelor of applied science, associate in applied science and associate in science degrees as well as a range of certificate and workforce training options.
