Tuition & Financial Aid: It's a little troublesome because of my situation. I am 22 years old and independent. Seems like I have to prove this each time.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Horrible admin services. You aren't even allowed to meet with financial aid without going through the "answer center" aka work study program who know nothing. They screwed up multiple times and each time you go you can expect a completely different response. You can never get a hold of a supervisor to complain or handle the situation. You pretty much have to figure it out for yourself. On top of that they purposely charge hundreds of dollars in extra fees after claiming they are the most affordable college in Florida. The will also withhold your refund past the original release date. Beginning of the semester I went online and the website said a specific date. I came back a couple days before the release and they changed the date to a latter day. The new date comes along still no money. They released my funds 2 weeks after the last reported date which is still about a month after they originally claimed I was going to receive it. They purposely do this each semester to collect interest on the money. You have to go through higher one for your refund and I honestly can not tell you which group are bigger screw ups.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Well basically you sign up with your FAFSA and then my college sends me an email later on saying if I received the aid or not. It is really easy and simple to understand.

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.
