Enrollment for the Spring 2023 Semester at Polk State College will start on October 24 with priority registration for students who have completed at least 50% of their program requirements. Open enrollment for students including those who are dual enrolled will start on November 7. Spring semester classes will begin on January 9.
Currently enrolled students can check the completion status of their program requirements to determine if they are eligible for priority registration on Passport, where students also register for classes. Prospective students must submit a free online application to Polk State. The application, as well as information about the admission and registration processes, is available at polk.edu/admission-aid/admissionsteps. Dual enrollment students should work with their high school advisors and email DEregistration@polk.edu if they need additional assistance.
