Prior to advising and registration review the current class schedule, available at http://www.chipola.edu/ for course options. Whenever possible, students should use one of the pre-planned Academic Plans available with advisers in Student Affairs and on the college website http://chipola.edu/studentservices/cguides/index.html It is in the student’s best interest to choose a major and transfer school as soon as possible and to work closely with an academic advisor in selecting courses. This will facilitate academic advising and should prevent you from taking courses unrelated to your major. The College advising staff will assist by providing up-to-date information about appropriate courses which should satisfy requirements for the student’s major at Chipola and at the chosen transfer institution. The Florida Virtual Campus at http://www.floridashines.org/ is available to all students to access program requirements for all majors within the state public university system.

Notification of Social Security Number Collection
In compliance with F.S. 119.071(5), the college collects your Social Security Number for use in the performance of the College’s duties and responsibilities. Federal legislation relating to the Hope Tax Credit requires that all postsecondary institutions report the Social Security Number of all postsecondary students to the Internal Revenue Service. This IRS requirement makes it necessary for colleges to collect the Social Security Number of every student. A student may refuse to disclose his/her Social Security Number to the College, but refusing to comply with federal requirement may result in fines by the IRS.
