Summer classes begin, fall enrollment continues

Posted on by Polk Newsroom

Polk State College welcomes students back to its campuses and centers today for Summer 2018.

Some important dates to remember this semester: today, May 9, is the last day to add a fully online or hybrid class; Tuesday, May 15, is the last day to drop a class and receive a 100 percent refund; on Wednesday, May 23, financial aid disbursements will begin; and Thursday, June 7, is the last day to withdraw from a class.

Registration for the Fall 2018 semester is already underway for current students. Open enrollment will begin June 4. Classes start August 20.

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.

Prospective students must submit an online application 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.
