Polk State College assigns all credit students a Polk State College student email account during the admission process. College faculty and support staff members send official communications to students through the assigned institutional e-mail account. Students must check this email account frequently in order to ensure they obtain critical information and assignments. Students are responsible for reading all information sent to their Polk State College student email accounts from the College. Students need to be aware that information about the student’s record will not be communicated when the student uses his or her personal email address.
