  • A Valencia ID number (VID) will be sent via email to each eligible applicant. Check your email daily for this information and contact your assigned DE school representative for any questions. Previous Dual Enrollment applicants will not receive this email since the VID remains the same.

Submitting Test Scores:

  • ACT: you are responsible for logging into your ACT account and requesting for your test scores to be sent to Valencia College. ACT scores are not valid until received and processed by Valencia College and this process takes five weeks.

If you have not taken any of the above mentioned exams, the PERT can be taken a maximum of three times at Valencia within a two-year period. You must have a federally issued picture ID (i.e. driver's license or passport) and VID number in order to take the PERT at Valencia. If you do not have a state or federally issued form of ID, an original birth certificate or social security card along with a school ID can be accepted. The first time taking the PERT will be free of cost; each re-take will have a cost of $10 per section. It is your responsibility to submit eligible test scores by the test score deadline. Please review the Assessment website before coming in for testing.
