Seminole State College of Florida has added two new features in MySeminoleState, pop-up messaging and Swap, designed to make registering for classes easier and more informative.
The new pop-up messaging feature notifies students if a course is outside their program/plan and asks if they want to continue to enroll in that course. This feature can help students avoid classes not needed for graduation and alerts them to courses that are not eligible for financial aid.
“Seminole State is always looking for ways to better inform students during the registration process,” says Dr. Marcia Roman, vice president of Student Affairs. “The pop-up also reinforces both federal requirements for financial aid, and state and federal trends in not only encouraging, but also requiring students to complete their programs of study in the most time- and cost-efficient manner.”
Students who decide to enroll in classes that are not eligible for financial aid based on their program of study are encouraged to consult a financial aid specialist or an academic advisor prior to the end of the add/drop period to determine how this will affect their aid eligibility and excess hours for their degree or program.
The second feature, Swap, allows students to add a class without dropping the one they already have. As a result, they won’t lose their spot should their attempt to add the new class be unsuccessful.
This feature is available to any student interested in adding a class and dropping another simultaneously through MySeminoleState or in person. However, students should be aware that if they have holds, time conflicts or attempt to register for courses with corequisites or prerequisites that they have not completed, the feature will not allow them to swap.
Registration by appointment is under way for most students, and Open Enrollment for Spring Term starts Nov. 21. For more information about online registration, visit the MySeminoleState Help website.
