Registration for College Credit Programs
Terms and Definitions
The credit is the unit of measure for college
Full-time students must enroll for a minimum
of 12 credits per term.
The maximum class load is usually 18 credits.
To receive overload permission, students must get approval from
the campus dean of student success.
Some college credit courses include specific
requirements which must be met prior to enrollment. Specific requirements
may include prerequisites (courses which must be satisfactorily
completed prior to enrollment), corequisites (courses which must
be taken at the same time of enrollment) or other specific conditions.
How to Register
FCCJ offers three ways to register: by Touch-Tone
telephone, Web registration and in person on campus. You are encouraged
to register by Touch-tone telephone or Web registration. However,
if you need additional assistance please visit the enrollment
services office on any campus for registration help. Touch-tone
and Web instructions are printed in the career training and university
Schedule changes may be made on any registration
day prior to the first day of classes or during the add/drop period
advertised in the career training and university transfer schedule.
Level changes (a transfer from an advanced
class in a subject to a more basic level) may be made after the
final drop day with the approval of the appropriate dean. These
changes may take place no later than the end of the date indicated
on the college calendar.
Final drop day is the last day upon which students
may drop a course and be eligible for a full refund of fees paid
for that course. Courses officially dropped will be removed from
the students' records. The final drop day will be scheduled so
that all students have an opportunity to drop a course on or after
the first scheduled class meeting.
If the College cancels a class at any
time prior to its completion, students' enrollment in that class
will be cancelled, and they will be entitled to a 100 percent
refund of fees paid for that class, less any indebtedness to the
College. The College will notify students and the College will
initiate the refund process.
Concurrent registration is permitted between
Florida Community College and state universities. If you are currently
enrolled in another college or university and wish to earn credit
at FCCJ to transfer back to your primary school, your steps to
admission and registration are:
- submit a membership application as a non-degree seeking student
and a one-time $15 membership fee.
- present a concurrent student permission letter or form from
your current school along with your application to enroll in
approved FCCJ course(s).
- obtain an FCCJ Membership card.
- register for approved class(es). You may need to see an academic
counselor or advisor with an unofficial transcript to determine
placement testing requirements or obtain course prerequisite
waivers before registration.
For more information, contact any FCCJ
enrollment services office.
The College reserves the right to suspend,
terminate or retroactively cancel the enrollment of any student
for any of the following reasons:
- disciplinary reasons.
- non-payment of course fees when payment is due, including
nonpayment resulting from dishonored checks or charge cards.
- failure to meet the minimum standards of progress.
