The majority of funding for continued operations at Valencia is determined by the Florida Legislature.
Therefore, required fees and other financial policies are dictated by Florida statute.
Class Deletion, Drop, or Withdrawal
If you owe the college any money after the end of the Drop/Add
period, the college has the option to withdraw you from all
You will still owe the balance plus any other fees if they are
charged. You are not eligible for a refund.
Student Initiated Drop
You can drop a class or all of your classes before the end of the
Drop/Add period and are entitled to a 100% refund of the refundable
fees. Your Valencia account will be credited, and after all
fees have been paid, a check or charge card credit will be issued.

Student Initiated Withdrawal
You may withdraw from a class or all of your classes after the end
of the official Drop/Add period, but before the mid-session withdrawal
deadline. However, you are not eligible for a refund. If
you owe the college any money, you will still have to pay that balance.
Refer to the college catalog
for further information.
You are responsible for
payment for all classes not dropped
from your schedule by the Drop/Refund Deadline listed in the
Important College Calendar Dates section of the catalog and in the
Credit Class Schedule. Non-attendance in any course(s) will
not qualify you for a waiver of your financial responsibility for
the course(s). If you do not pay by the specified date and
time, you may lose all of your classes and will have to
attempt to re-register. It is your responsibility to
review your account with the college.
To receive a 100% refund of the refundable fees, students must
drop from a course or all courses before the last day of the Drop/Add
period as listed in the credit class schedule.
If you withdraw from
a class after the Add/Drop period but before the withdrawal
deadline, you will receive a grade of "W" and will not be entitled
to a refund of fees.
If you withdraw from a course after the withdrawal deadline, you will be
issued a grade of "W", and a refund will not be granted.
If you have recieved financial aid, or if your fees were paid by an approved
agency, you might be entitled to a refund after proper credits are
first issued to the awarding agency. Refund policies are established
by and subject to change by the Legislature of the State of Florida.
For refund purposes, the first day of classes is the one designated
"Classes Begin" as published in the College's catalog and the class schedule,
and does not refer to the first scheduled class day for any particular student.
Collection of Debt
If you are currently enrolled and have a returned
check, delinquent loan, delinquent VA deferment or other financial
obligation, you will be notified. If you do not respond within the
allowed time, the college reserves the right to financially withdraw
a student from all classes. All fees on the account remain. This
applies even if you do not attend any classes. Until your indebtedness
is paid, you will not be allowed to enroll in a subsequent term
or receive your college records. Please be advised that checks returned
unpaid to the College's bank will be automatically redeposited for
collection. Consequently, you may be assessed returned check charges
by your banking institution, in addition to a returned check fee
from Valencia. The college reserves the right to submit for collection
all accounts deemed delinquent to an external collection service.
The College will notify all students before this action will be
taken. However, once an account is submitted, up to 30% fee will be
assessed to the outstanding balance of your Valencia account and
payment must be rendered to the collections agency directly after
Collection of Debt refers to:

more than two times beginning Session 1, 1999, shall pay the full cost of instruction
