The Interactive Student Learning Environment, “ISLE”, located in B206 on
the Key West Campus, provides studying support resources and services.
The learning center is staffed by FKCC faculty and staff, PTK tutors, and
a work study student. Students who make use of the “ISLE” can expect
personal attention, access to remedial workshops, and tutoring. The space
itself consists of 12 computers, an LCD projector, large tables for group
study, white boards, and other amenities.
In the “ISLE,” students can practice power point presentations, rehearse
speeches, and edit essays. Computer assistance is available, as well as
support for students accessing the online tutoring system
“Smart Thinking.”“Smart Thinking” is offered free of charge, and allows
students to connect with an online tutor 24/7.

A degree student is one admitted to a planned program leading to a

courses, but not to a planned program leading to a degree or certificate.
An audit student enrolls for informational instruction only and receives
no credit. A full-time student is registered for at least 12 semester hours
for credit in either of Terms I or II or III. A part-time student is registered
for fewer than 12 semester hours for credit in either of Terms I or II or III.
A freshman student is a degree student who has earned fewer than 24
semester hours of credit. A sophomore student is a degree student who
has earned 24 or more semester hours of credit.
COMPLETING MORE THAN ONE DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

It is possible to complete program requirements for two different
programs within a degree category or to complete two separate degree
requirements. In order to receive dual degrees or certificates, you must
complete the course requirements for both programs and earn 15
semester hours of credit beyond the requirements of the first degree.
The normal semester credit load for full-time students is 12 to 16 hours.
