Registration

Registration information and procedures for college credit degree and certificate-seeking students are published online in the Web Registration Guide, posted on college bulletin boards and on the following Web page www.cf.edu/departments/sa/enroll/academic_advising.htm. Priority registration dates (based on the number of earned credit hours) are posted on the MyCF Web portal as well as in the college calendar of this catalog. In the case of courses beginning outside the regular academic semesters, posters, fliers and media announcements may be used to notify potential students. Each student, by registering, pledges acceptance of the rules and regulations of the college. Schedule and registration information for continuing education students is available online at CFItraining.cf.edu or in the Enrollment Services Centers.

In accordance with Florida law and college policy, veteran or dependent students who are receiving GI Bill benefits are provided with the opportunity to register at the highest priority date each semester. At the College of Central Florida, this allows veteran or dependent students who are receiving GI Bill benefits the opportunity to register with the first window of students, which is normally reserved for students who have earned 40 or more credits. This will enable those who are utilizing GI Bill educational benefits to have greater access to available courses, thereby decreasing the number of excess hours taken by these students and reducing the time to graduation.

First Time in College CF associate degree-seeking students must complete orientation before registering for the first time. Students will be assigned to orientation based on placement test scores. Those with no prep needs will complete the information portion online and then sign up for registration assistance. Those with prep needs will sign up for information/registration sessions. Advisors will assist students in registering for the appropriate courses for their first semester based on their program of study. Students who have completed orientation/registration and are in good standing may register online in future semesters. See the online Web Registration Guide for instructions.

Online orientation is required for all transfer students prior to registration for their first semester at the college. Students who have attended CF before and are returning to the college must complete online orientation. These assignments are also based on prep needs.

Students may register for a maximum of 18 credit hours in fall and spring semesters, and 18 credit hours in summer (nine hours in Summer A and nine in Summer B). Students may request permission to exceed the maximum 18 credit hour registration limit through the petitions. A minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or above is required to petition.

Nondegree-seeking and transient students must register in person and only during general registration. (See the college calendar for dates.)

Once a student is registered, he/she may request a student identification card and a parking decal (at no cost) at the campus Public Safety office.

Fees may be paid online by credit card via the MyCF Web Portal, in person at the Cashier’s office at the Ocala and Citrus campuses and the Levy Center administrative offices or by check via regular mail (as long as the payment is received prior to the fee due date).

Students receiving financial aid or veteran’s assistance should go to the Enrollment Services Center first for processing of necessary paperwork. Students will be held in their registered classes provided fees are paid by the due date or they have been awarded financial aid.

Third party authorization — If all or part of a student's registration fees are being paid by an external agency (employer, Florida Prepaid Program, Vocational Rehabilitation, Workforce Connection, a government agency, etc.), the student must present a current form of authorization (letter, card, voucher, etc.) at the Cashier's office by the fee payment deadline. This authorization must be for the current semester and indicate a specific dollar amount for fees and/or books. The student is responsible for any remaining balance. If the current authorization is not presented, the student's account will not be credited properly and the student may be removed from all courses and/or responsible to pay the fees.

Florida Prepaid Tuition Plan — Students who participate in the Florida Prepaid Tuition Plan must present a valid Florida Prepaid Identification card and a photo ID to a at the Cashier's office each semester they register for classes as well as whenever they make a schedule change during the add/drop period of each semester. The card must apply to the appropriate academic year and be signed by the student. Students participating in this tuition plan are responsible for any amounts not covered by their plan, and any remaining balance must be paid by the fee due date on the student’s schedule. Keep a copy of the cashier’s receipt for verification should any questions arise.
