Advance Registration FAQ

What is Advance Registration?

Advance Registration is a way for you to set up your fall class schedule during the summer prior to your arrival at Florida College.

Is Advance Registration optional?

It is to your advantage to register as early as possible. By participating you get to pick your classes earlier, which increases your chances of getting the classes you prefer at the times you choose.

A registration opportunity is provided during orientation for those who have not yet registered, but it is to your advantage to participate now.

What are Registration Periods?

Two registration periods are scheduled during the summer: June 26–July 10 and July 29–August 6. During this period students will be registered by an Academic Advisor for their fall classes. See the schedule below for eligibility deadlines.

How do I qualify to participate in Advance Registration?

To register for classes, you must be admitted to Florida College and have submitted your official transcript for any prior college coursework including dual enrollment prior to the deadline for each registration period (see schedule below). AP courses are self-reported during the RSVP process for registration.

How do I get a Priority Invitation?

A First Priority invitation will be sent to students who have what we call a “completed file” by June 20. This means you must be admitted and have submitted all your post-acceptance documents.

The admissions office is the best place to find out if you qualify for a Priority Invitation.

How do I schedule my appointment?

All students who qualify are invited to participate in the next scheduled registration period according to the schedule below. The invitation will direct you to an online RSVP questionnaire where you provide the information we need to create your registration file. Once you submit your RSVP questionnaire you will be directed to a scheduling page where you can choose an available date and time for your registration appointment.

What if I can’t keep my appointment?

Because the number of registration appointments is limited, only cancel your appointment under extreme circumstances. If, however, something comes up, you can find a rescheduling option on the confirmation email you received when you scheduled your appointment. Please note that because our advisors individually prepare for each appointment, this rescheduling option is only available upon 48 hours notice.

Can I register at a Florida College Summer Camp?

Our summer camps are not equipped for Advance Registration. Please keep your camp schedule in mind when you schedule your appointment. Have a blast at camp!

Who will register me for classes?

Advance Registration advisors are Florida College faculty and staff that work over the summer to register all incoming students for their fall classes. You will receive notification of your Florida College academic advisor after you are registered for classes and meet with them one-on-one during orientation in August.

Do I have to come to Florida for registration?

No, most of our appointments are done by phone. However, if you’re in the area, we’ll be happy to host you in our offices for registration. If you’d like to schedule a tour of campus while you’re here, we can put you in touch with someone to take you on a tour customized to your interests.

How do I know which classes to sign up for?

After your appointment is scheduled, you will receive a confirmation email that contains links to some information we ask you to review prior to your appointment. We suggest that you write down any questions you may have for your Advance Registration advisor.

During your appointment your advance registration advisor will guide you through the process of selecting classes that meet your academic goals. We allow up to an hour for each appointment so that we can answer all your questions.

How important is it for me to decide my major now?

We want to help students determine a major early in their college career because the further you advance in a degree program the more complicated it becomes to change your major. For guidance on choosing a major contact the Advising Office or browse a list of our degree programs.

How do I bring my dual enrollment/CLEP/AP credits to Florida College?

You should submit an official transcript to Florida College as soon as possible so that our registrar can review it and assign academic credit for any courses you are transferring in, including dual enrollment and CLEP.

AP scores are released mid-July. As long as you have already listed Florida College as the school to receive those scores you won’t have to submit an additional transcript. The RSVP questionnaire will ask you to list any AP classes for which you anticipate receiving credit.
