Registration for College Credit Programs

Terms and Definitions


The credit is the unit of measure for college coursework.

Course Load

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.

Prerequisites and Corequisites

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. The College reserves the right to drop a course from a student’s schedule if the course prerequisite, corequisite, or other specific conditions have not been met.

How to Register

Florida Community College offers two ways to register: Web registration and in person on campus. You are encouraged to register via Web registration. However, if you need additional assistance, please visit the enrollment services office on any campus for registration help. Web instructions are online and in print in the career training and university transfer schedule.

Schedule Changes and Add/Drop

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 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

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.

Cancellation of a Course by the College

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

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 Florida Community College to transfer back to your primary school, your steps to admission and registration are:

  1. Submit a membership application as a non-degree seeking student and a one-time $15 records origination fee.
  2. Present a concurrent student permission letter or form from your current school along with your application to enroll in approved Florida Community College course(s).
  3. Obtain a Florida Community College Membership card.
  4. 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 Florida Community College enrollment services office.

Suspension, Termination or Cancellation of Enrollment

The College reserves the right to suspend, terminate or retroactively cancel the enrollment of any student for any of the following reasons:

  1. Disciplinary reasons.
  2. Non-payment of course fees when payment is due, including nonpayment resulting from dishonored checks or charge cards.
  3. Failure to meet the minimum standards of progress.
  4. Failure to successfully complete course prerequisites.

Enrollment Verification

Students requesting enrollment verification to submit to a third-party must make this request after the last day to drop a class for a 100% refund for each session. If you are enrolled in multiple sessions, an enrollment verification cannot be completed until the last day to drop for that session has been reached. Complete a request for enrollment verification form at any campus enrollment services office. Enrollment verification documents the following: full-time enrollment = 12 or more credit hours, at least half time = between 6 and 11 credit hours, and less than half-time = 5 or less credit hours.
