Update September 15, 2017 at 12:17PM
Below is some important information regarding financial aid and student account deadlines. Please read carefully so you are informed on how to be prepared for your return to campus on Monday September 18th.
Classes will Resume Monday September 18th
If flooding, lack of electricity, or damage related to the storm are severely impacting your ability to return to classes on Monday the 18th, as scheduled, you must contact your instructor to explain your current circumstances and come to a mutual agreement on how you can proceed in your classes. Our main concern is the safety of our students, but we also want to help you return to some normalcy and certainly finish the semester. As a reminder, please do not put yourself in any danger by driving through flooded areas or other dangerous situations.
Deadline Extension Information
The deadline to withdraw from the A5 term was September 8th. Any student wishing to withdraw from a course in this term must see Vice President Price for approval in room 110, building 14.
The deadline to withdraw from the A8 term is September 20th and that deadline will remain as is.
Disbursement of Student Financial Aid and Refunds
The financial aid office was scheduled to disburse student financial aid on September 14th. Due to the college closure we have not been able to complete the necessary processes prior to the disbursement of aid. Therefore, the disbursement of student financial aid will be moved to Monday September 18th. Once aid is disbursed refund checks will be issued. Because of the uncertainty of the delivery of mail in some areas we will allow students to pick up their checks, in person at the cashier’s office Thursday, September 21st (8 am – 4 pm)– Friday, September 22nd (8 am – 1 pm). Checks NOT picked up before 1 pm on Friday September 22nd will be mailed to the address on file. To pick up refund checks you must present a government issued ID and only the student will be granted to pick up the check. Students with direct deposit will receive their refunds via direct deposit, as normal.
Building 4 Update
Due to recent hurricane damage, Building 4 will be closed for the rest of the Fall semester. All classes that normally meet in Building 4 have been moved to alternate locations on campus at their regularly-scheduled times.
Please check this list for the new meeting location of your class.
Update September 12, 2017 at 2:56PM
Due to the uncertain circumstances for our students in the college’s five county service district, Florida Gateway College will be closed through Friday, September 15th for all students. All class requirements are suspended until further notice.
The regular DBOT meeting has been rescheduled for Tuesday, September 19 at 6pm due to Hurricane Irma. The workshop is cancelled and will be rescheduled at a later date.
