Admissions & Registration at Our Florida Technology Colleges
Steps to Getting Started
It’s As Easy as 1, 2, 3!
Step 1 | Select Your School
Step 2 | Meet Virtually with a Counselor and Follow Through!
Schedule a virtual meeting with a counselor/advisor at the school that offers the program you are interested in like medical assistant programs, GED certification, adult education, and more. You will discuss your test results, technical or academic placement, special needs, financial aid and registration procedures. Then, be sure to follow through with their recommendations!
Step 3 | Get Registered!
Students who register for courses and voluntarily withdraw within five (5) schools days of the beginning of a term shall be entitled to a full refund of tuition, student activity fee, fee-supported cost recovery, and lab/supply fees. Registration fees and Health Science Education fees are non-refundable. Five (5) school days shall not apply to courses less than three (3) weeks or ninety (90) hours in duration. In such cases, the request for withdrawal must be made prior to the course meeting more than one-third (1/3) of its assigned hours. Retention of fees collected in advance for a student who does not enter class shall not exceed $100. Refunds will be made within forty-five (45) days of the date on which the student voluntarily withdraws.
Students involuntarily withdrawn pursuant to the Adult Student Conduct and Discipline Code are not entitled to a refund of any fees.
Students who pay fees but are entitled to a waiver, voucher or agency payment (refer to Policy #6606) shall be entitled to a refund of fees only if required evidences are presented to the school/center principal or his/her designee within fifteen (15) school days of the beginning of a term.
In the case of unusual or extraordinary circumstances (such as illness, death in family, etc.) that preclude a student’s enrollment, the school principal or his/her designee may honor a request for full or partial refund of fees providing that: (1) the request is made in writing prior to the date that the course would have normally ended, (2) supporting evidence (where appropriate) is provided. If said refund results in a failure to satisfy state fee requirements, the student shall not be reported for membership during the Workforce Education Fund survey period in the course for which the refund is given.
Students who feel they have been treated unfairly in the application of this policy or its rules may appeal using the student grievance procedure as presented in the Adult Student Conduct and Discipline Code.
Refunds, when due, will be made without requiring a request from a student.
Refunds, when due, will be made within forty-five (45) days: (1) of the last day of attendance if written notification of withdrawal has been provided to the school/center by the student, or (2) from the date the school/center withdraws the student or determines withdrawal by the student.
A student is entitled to a full refund of fees if a course is canceled by the school/center principal or his/her designee, provided however, that the student was not reported in membership during the Workforce Education Fund survey period in which the class was counted. If so, only those fees in excess of the state requirement shall be refunded.
Miscellaneous items purchased from the school bookstores (textbooks, uniforms, etc.) may be returned for a full refund provided that the items are unused, in the original packaging and currently being used in the instructional program.
Students who are receiving Title IV (Pell Grant) funds and withdraw from their program will receive a refund based on the Federal post-withdrawal calculation formula. For additional information, please see the Financial Aid Office in the Office of Admissions.
