Open registration is underway at Polk State College for the spring semester, which begins January 5.
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 example, students pursuing an Associate in Arts (AA) who have 12 or more credit hours and have not declared their transfer intentions will have a registration hold. AA students must declare a transfer major and transfer institution.
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.
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.
