Enrollment for the Summer 2021 Semester at Polk State College will start on March 29 with priority registration for students who have completed at least 50 percent of their program requirements.
Open enrollment will begin on April 5. Classes will start on May 10.
Currently enrolled students will be able to check the completion status of their program requirements on March 19 and whether they qualify for priority registration on Passport, where they can also register for classes.
Dual enrollment students should work with their high school advisors and email Deregistration@polk.edu for additional assistance if needed.
Prospective students must submit a free online application to Polk State. Information about the application, orientation, and registering for classes is available at polk.edu/admission-aid/admissionsteps.
