Admissions & Records
Thank you for visiting the Admissions website of Valencia
College! We are glad you are here and we hope that you find the
information on this website to be helpful as you transition to one
of the premiere learning-centered institutions in the United States.
You will be admitted to Valencia College as a degree-seeking student if you have
a standard high school diploma or a state-issued General Educational
Development (GED) diploma. To be admitted as a degree-seeking student you
must have an admissions application and official academic transcript(s)
on file in the Admissions and Records Office. If you do not have a high school diploma or GED, you may be admitted as a Provisional non-degree seeking student. For a complete list of requirements, visit the Summary of Admissions Requirements Chart in our catalog.
Remember, it takes time to process your admissions application.
The earlier you apply, the better! Please visit the online Important Dates & Deadlines calendar for admissions Application Priority
There is a non-refundable application fee of $35.00 for Associate's degree level applicants and for Bachelor's degree level applicants (you must have already completed an Associate's degree in order to apply for admission to a Bachelor's degree program at Valencia). Dual Enrollment students cannot apply online and should visit the Dual Enrollment website for application instructions.
Previous Valencia students who have not taken classes here in the past two (2) years will need to reapply for admission and pay the non-refundable $35.00 readmission fee.
PLEASE NOTE: Your admissions application will not be processed
without the non-refundable admissions application fee. Admissions applications are normally processed within three to five (3-5) business
days of receipt. However, between November 1 to January 15, July
1 to August 31, and April 1 to May 15, it may take additional time
for your admissions application to be processed due to the large
number of applications received.
- You will initially be admitted as a non-degree seeking student
until your official final academic transcript(s) are received.
Order your official final high school and/or college transcript(s)
and have them sent directly to:
Admissions and Records Office
PO Box 3028
Orlando, Florida 32802-3028
- Financial aid applicants must have all official
final academic transcripts received and evaluated before their
financial aid will be disbursed. Please allow adequate
time for this process to occur. The evaluation of transfer credit
takes at least 20 business days (from the date the official transcript is received) to complete. Official academic
transcripts are not evaluated for non-degree seeking students
(personal interest, technical certificate, transient, teacher recertification, or job
improvement). You must be in a degree seeking program in order
for your official college/university academic transcript(s) to be evaluated.
