Acknowledgement and Agreement

Please read the following statement carefully:

* 

I understand that I do not qualify as a Florida resident for tuition purposes for the term for which this application is being submitted, and that if I should qualify for some future term, it will be necessary for me to file the required documentation before the beginning of the term to be considered for Florida residency classification.

 

I understand that it is my responsibility to request that my high school and/or college transcripts be forwarded to the college. However, I authorize St. Petersburg College to obtain my high school and/or college transcript(s), and other necessary admission records, including test scores, from other institutions that I have attended, electronically and/or hard copy.

 

I hereby apply for admission to St. Petersburg College and agree that, if accepted, I will abide by all rules, procedures and policies of the college, now and hereafter adopted, as set forth in the Board of Trustees Rules and Procedures Manual and as published in the college catalog and student handbook. I certify that as a condition of admission, I will not unlawfully possess, use, sell, purchase, manufacture, deliver, or possess with the intent to sell, purchase, manufacture, or deliver any controlled substance while enrolled at St. Petersburg  College. I certify that the answers given herein are true and correct. I further understand that a false statement in this application or any admission document will subject me to penalties pursuant to §837.06, Florida Statutes; and is grounds for denial of admission or, upon further discovery, grounds for dismissal and invalidation of college credit or degree based on such credit.

 

By submitting this application, I am granting permission to St. Petersburg  College, its agents and staff to use video and photographs of myself for SPC promotional/advertising materials without charge. No promises have been made, no consideration is involved for their use. If I do not want SPC to use video and photographs of myself, I will inform the associate provost on my home campus.
