Heartland residents who didn’t register in time for the start of classes on Jan. 4 at South Florida State College have an opportunity to get into class without having to wait for the next academic term.

Registration for SFSC’s spring Flex C Session is now open. Classes scheduled for the spring Flex C Session run 13 weeks, Jan. 25 – May 3.

SFSC introduced the Flex C Session last year to offer opportunities for new students to get on campus and existing students to earn more college credits. With the Flex C Session new students can register for spring term classes three weeks after the regular term kicked off in early January.

Students who started classes earlier this month can also benefit by adding classes to earn more credit hours, accelerating their graduation.

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

New students looking to start classes 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.

New students should apply soon to ensure they can start class on Wednesday, Jan. 25.

The spring Flex C Session features introductory classes in humanities, psychology, computer graphics, and art history. The schedule of classes is available on the SFSC website. Go to “Current Students” on the home page and to “Schedule of Classes” in the drop down box.

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.
