Go to the Registration Guide and choose the semester you plan to enroll in to see if your enrollment appointment window has opened. It is very important for you to enroll in your courses as soon as possible to secure the schedule you need and to qualify for any financial aid to cover your tuition.
All students must acknowledge Financial Responsibility for the courses they enroll in. Until you do this you won’t be able to register for classes. Information about the policy and how to acknowledge responsibility is found on the Student Resources page.
FAQs before you enroll:
I need to meet with an advisor so I know what to take. Who is my advisor?
Graduate level students should contact their program faculty advisor unless otherwise directed. Undergraduate students may identify their PC campus academic advisor and request an appointment by visiting the FSU Panama City campus Chapman Center for Academic Advising and Student Success.
I can’t remember how to search for/enroll in courses. Is there someplace online that can help?
Students may follow the step-by-step instructions for registering for their courses provided here or contact their PC campus academic advisor at email@example.com for advisement and support.
I have a registration hold. How can I get it removed?
In your myFSU portal, click on the link for your hold to carefully read the instructions on how to clear it. You may also contact the Panama City Office of Admissions and Records at (850) 770-2311 for assistance. Most general registration holds can be removed by following the instructions for the specific hold, but an academic advisor can also provide support and guidance if needed.
If you have a financial related hold, contact the PC campus Cashier’s office at 850-770-2120 or contact the Financial Aid office to explore your options.
What is the deadline to register for classes?
Students may determine the deadlines for registering for classes by reviewing the Enrollment Appointments for the corresponding semester’s Registration Guide. During the first four days of classes, individual courses may be added, dropped, or sections of a course changed. Students are financially liable for all courses appearing on their schedule after the fourth day of classes. Waiting until the beginning of drop/add for a semester to register for a class will result in a $100 late fee! Please make sure you have at least one class on your schedule by the end of the open enrollment period for each semester to avoid the $100 late fee! Students are financially responsible for all courses remaining on their schedule following the 4th day of classes.
Dropping a course
Courses may be dropped through the seventh (7th) week of classes with the exception of mandated college preparatory courses, freshman composition, and courses involved in allegations of academic dishonesty; however, tuition charges remain. Approval by the student’s academic college staff is required to reduce the academic load below twelve (12) semester hours or to increase an academic load above eighteen semester hours (to a maximum of twenty-one semester hours). Follow the steps provided here to request a course drop AFTER the 4th day of classes.
I plan to graduate this fall but I didn’t apply online. Can I still apply to graduate?
Students must apply to graduate online during the first three weeks of the semester you plan to graduate in – This is required to enable your academic college deans' staff to review your academic records for degree completion. Instructions for how to apply to graduate may be found on the Apply to Graduate pdf. PLEASE NOTE: Applying online to graduate DOES NOT obligate you to participate in a commencement ceremony.
The Panama City Campus holds its graduation commencement EACH spring semester. If you plan to graduate in the summer or fall and would like to participate in the Panama City campus spring Commencement, please contact the PC campus Admissions & Records office at 850-770-2311 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional information regarding the Panama City spring Commencement may be found on our General Information page.
