You must be enrolled in a course to get tutoring
When I check my bill or MedailleOne, the tuition is different from my Award Letter. Why?
Your bill is for one term. Your Award letter is for one academic year (Fall/Spring or Fall/Spring/Summer terms).
Why do I need to send a copy of my employer’s reimbursement policy to the Financial Aid Office?
Receiving tuition reimbursement from your employer is considered
a financial resource.
Regulations require our Office to acquire this documentation and include in your award package.
What does NOT fall under financial aid?
The most common of these are:
Your bill
Financial aid does not generate your bills or refunds; they are generated from the Student Accounts Office. For questions on billing, please contact the Student Accounts Office.

In-school certification
If you are notified that your loans are in repayment, you may need to provide the lender with in-school certification paperwork. Please contact the Registrar/Student Services Office to help you complete the deferment paperwork.

Online courses are no different than traditional courses in terms of rigor and content, but they do offer scheduling flexibility.

Quista Alert Notification System
How much time will I need to allow
for my studies each week?
Students will spend four hours each week in class and another four hours in learning team interaction.

Beyond that, you will need to plan for the time it takes to complete your individual assignments.

Depending on the class and your own learning styles, you will need between five and twelve additional hours each week.

Students may drop classes from their schedules for a full refund or add others during a
brief
period of time at the beginning of each term.
For Drop/Add dates please refer to your College Calendar
Shorter semesters have a shorter window of time to drop/add
All courses in which a student remains registered for AFTER the drop/add date will be counted as ATTEMPTS. That means these courses become part of your permanent record and will appear on your transcript.

Why are learning teams so important?
Academic Standards
Maximum Attempts on one course
The maximum number of times a student can attempt a course is THREE.
On a third attempt, students must pay non-Florida resident rates
Transcripts
PHSC REQUIRES:

Official high school transcripts indicating you have earned a standard diploma OR official copies of GED transcripts
Official transcripts from every college, university, or technical school you have attended
Transcripts must arrive in an original, sealed envelope from the sending institution
PLACEMENT TESTING
New students seeking a degree or certificate will need to take a placement test PRIOR to registration for classes (unless you have current SAT or ACT scores or have college-level English and Math courses from another college/university.)

Placement test scores are only valid for TWO years. All students are encouraged to take reading, writing, and math courses during the first semester of enrollment.
Do learning teams ever change?
Yes, they do.

It is healthy for groups to mix themselves up occasionally.

Potential reasons for change:
Students find that another group is a better match for them
Your work schedule may change so that a weeknight meeting is better than a weekend one.
Student expectations and performance may change, requiring a shift in groups.

You should expect teams to change as students join or leave your cohort.
It is important to remain flexible when approaching group changes and to keep the health of the cohort in mind.

*Note: groups for online courses change on a course by course basis
For additional information on Collaborative Learning Teams, look in the
ALP Guide to Collaborative Learning Teams: Forming and Maintaining Healthy Groups
.
