College Junior

Career Services: I am not sure how the post grad services are at Valencia

4 College Junior

Student Body: There are people from all around the world. However in certain campuses one ethnicity heavily outweighs the others.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: The workload is greater than most at Valencia but it's easier than most at UCF due to the smaller classes and the personal connection with the professors.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I feel that the school offers the general courses to get you through your degree. There should be more study abroad programs and internships.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: There are many resources on campus. There offices for financial aid, enrollment, business, math centers, tutoring help, language learning, it is truly a great value!

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have had the opportunity to flex my classes based on my schedule. The classes are widely available online and in class which is convenient for many. The only frustration that they don't have more locations outside of Orlando.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Valencia is an amazing school. Classes are small, professors are great, there are many campus activities, and many locations around orlando!

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Valencia College just transitioned from a community college to a 4 year college. There are many associates degree but very limited bachelors degree. It is still growing and in the future, I know it will be a very valuable degree.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Their are tons of campus activities. The library is great aside from some of the librarians being rude and not wanting to help people.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not made it to this point yet and have not tried to get any information on these topics yet.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have only taken basic courses so far. The workload of the courses i've taken have been relatively spaced out and easily managed. The only issue that I have had with my major is that it is so hard to get into a science course are their are just never any available or when their is one available it isn't the one I need.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: There isn't enough science course available. The professors so far have been excellent.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have taken a course that is online completely. All the courses I have taken had lots of work to do online though and for the most part it was relatively easy to get in touch with my professors when i had questions. The workload wasn't to difficult and teachers gave adequate time for each assignment to be completed.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is very diverse, smart, not well dressed (in my opinion), and eager to learn. Most students i've met have been really friendly and helpful.

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition prices for an in-state student are excellent. The books are still extremely pricey though. The teachers i've had so far have all been excellent, smart, educational, interesting, and more than worth the money. The financial aid process is much more complicated then it really needs to be. The process would be a lot smoother if the employees new more about areas or could answer some of the commonly asked questions like deadlines, etc.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The teachers are very helpful and flexible with their schedules. However, if you need to meet with an advisor its an extremely long wait. I've had a lot of difficulty with transferring my credits from my high school to my college. The biggest issue i've had is that nobody seems to anything about any other area. For example, I went to the answer center to find out "why i couldn't get financial aid for the full summer term?" And the lady told me that I had to take the "b" term in order to get financial aid. So, I asked when the deadline for the payment of "b" term was and she told me it wasn't the same as for "a" term, but then I got dropped from the courses I signed up for because she was wrong. Also, the business office can`t answer any questions about financial aid.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think the tuition is high and the "grants" available for students are limited to those that barely make any money, without considering those that have to pay rent, car, ins. etc...

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: I haven't spent much time accessing resources.

College Senior

Career Services: I am still currently attending and am unaware of how good their post grad services are as of this moment.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is a gym, both for sports and physical exercises, a few outside sports area including a tennis court. There is a pool, and even dance studios for those so inclined. A performance art center and gallery for artists. and many other facilities for extra curricular activities.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: The classes available are variable, from any time of day and even being online. So they are really trying to work with any life schedule a person may have.

College Senior

Academic Experience: There is no anthropology specific course path for me at this school, I am here merely for my Associates at the moment.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: There is a very wide variety of classes and professors for students at this college.

3 College Senior

Student Body: The students are very kind, as well as behave in a professional manor. They are very creative and hold many interesting and new fairs and shows for the student body.

4 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Honestly, for instate tuition Valencia College is a great school. It's pretty easy to receive the financial aid and pay for everything through it.

To some, Valencia is an opportunity to grow academically, but to others it’s a place to relax and explore the academic world without any pressure from fellow classmates and professors. Valencia Community College is open to the overachievers and to the slackers. Most students remain at Valencia well beyond the two years required to complete the associate degree.

Valencia Community College is a small academic community that takes great pride in its students. It has well over 100 clubs and extracurricular activities. Many nationalities and ethnic groups are represented on campus. Furthermore, Valencia spares no expense; the school brings in speakers, philanthropists, and experts in various fields year-round to discuss various topics with students.

For those who are concerned about their environment, the school has great security on campus. Police are present, aware, and ready to help. Valencia will help you every step of the way, from enrollment to graduation and beyond. On any given day, you will hear of and see alums walking the many Valencia campuses, talking to current students about life beyond college. Valencia is truly a great place to start.
