Frequently Asked Questions
Terms and Definitions
The credit is the unit of measure for college coursework.
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. Prerequisites and corequisites for any course are subject to change. Students must meet the prerequisite and corequisite requirements of any course at the time the student attempts to register for that course. If you have questions about the prerequisites or corequisites for a course, please contact any academic advisor. 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 State College offers two ways to register: online in Connections and in person on campus. You are encouraged to register by 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 printed 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.
