Financial aid is readily available at Valencia, and classes are very affordable. However, financial aid advisers are hard to reach. There is a lot of red tape to cross before seeing a financial adviser in person, and there is often a long wait, too. Be prepared for a meeting with your adviser once you have one scheduled. They will want to see your FAFSA results and possibly other documentation, such as tax return claims, to verify your financial status for need-based loans.
