AVON PARK, Fla. – Aug. 26, 2016 – Heartland residents who didn’t register for the fall academic term at South Florida State College have another opportunity to jump-start their education.

Registration for SFSC’s Fall Flex C Session is now open. Classes scheduled for the Fall Flex C Session run 12 weeks, Sept. 12 – Dec. 14.

“This is a great opportunity for students who couldn’t register at the start of the fall academic term to earn 3 or 4 credit hours without having to wait for the spring academic term,” said Lynn MacNeill, the interim dean for the Division of Arts and Sciences.

New students can apply for admission to the college by clicking the “Apply Now” button at the top of SFSC’s home page at www.southflorida.edu. Current students can register and pay for classes through the college portal, Panther Central.

The Fall Flex C Session features introductory classes in humanities, freshman English, American history, astronomy, and the first-year experience class.

“The new Flex C Session will also assist those individuals who were planning to start later in the semester,” said Dr. Sidney Valentine, vice president for Academic Affairs and Student Services. “With the advent of Flex C, students can begin the fall term three weeks after the regular term has begun, which allows them to add additional classes during a second eight-week term as well.”

SFSC’s Advising and Counseling Center accepts walk-in registrations 8 a.m. – 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m., Fridays. Students can register in Building B of the Highlands Campus in Avon Park, at the Hardee Campus in Bowling Green, at the Lake Placid Center in Lake Placid, or at the DeSoto Campus in Arcadia.
