How to Register
Florida Community College 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 transfer schedule.
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
Level changes (a transfer from one level of a class in a subject
to another level) may be made after the final drop day with the
approval of the instructor and appropriate dean.
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.
