Registration in Online Classes
Due to state and federal regulations, Valencia College requires all students registered in an online course to reside outside of California and to provide a mailing address outside of the state of California. If you do not have a mailing address outside of California, you will be deleted from any online course(s) in which you register.
Assisted registration is a limited option for being registered on campus by a Student Services Specialist in the Answer Center. Assisted registration is only available for senior citizens, Internship & Workforce Services students, students who wish to audit a course, and students who received a registration override and need to be added to a wait list. All other students must register for courses via their Atlas account.
Dual Enrollment Registration
The Dual Enrollment program is for high school students who have been approved to take courses at Valencia College that will count toward high school completion. Dual Enrollment students may register for classes online via their Atlas account. If you have problems registering for your dual enrollment classes please contact the Dual Enrollment Office at (407) 582-1600.
Transient Student Registration
Transient students are currently enrolled college students who register for courses at another institution on a temporary basis (for example: a university student attending a summer semester at a state college). In order to take courses at another institution, you must receive approval from your home institution.
Students whose home institution is in Florida must complete a Transient Student Admission Application on https://www.floridashines.org/.
- Beginning December 1, 2012, the floridashines.org Transient Student Admission Application will also serve as an application for admission to Valencia College. Until then, Transient students whose home institution is in Florida must also complete Valencia's online Application for Admission if they have not previously done so.
- Students whose home institution is in another state or who are attending a Florida private institution that does not utilize floridashines.org should contact their home institution for permission to attend Valencia.
Once you have been admitted to Valencia you will need to create your Atlas account. You will register yourself for your classes via your Atlas account. Only after all approvals have been received should a transient student register for classes. Transient approval is required for each term the student wishes to take classes at Valencia.
Note: Effective with Spring 2013 registration, there will be a $5.00 Transient Fee applied to each course you take at Valencia College.
Senior Citizen RegistrationRegistration fees for students 60 years of age or older may be waived under the following conditions:
- You must be classified as a Florida Resident. To be considered for Florida Residency please complete the Statement of Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes form.
- You must register for classes on a space-available basis on the day senior citizen registration begins. Check the important dates calendar to get the date.
- You must obtain a Senior Citizen Waiver Form from the Business Office or the Answer Center, complete the form, and present it to the Business Office after registering for your classes.
- You must decide if you want to receive a grade in the course or if you want to audit the course (no grade).
PLEASE NOTE: If you register early in order to assure a space, you will be charged full course fees with no rights to a waiver or refund (you will receive a refund if you drop the class by the published Drop/Refund Deadline or if the class is canceled by the College). If you received an override to register into a class that is full you will be charged for the class.
Students with Disabilities Registration
Students are strongly encouraged to request accommodations from the Office for Students with Disabilities at least four weeks prior to the first day of classes. The college cannot guarantee that accommodations will be available on the first day of classes for those students who choose to request services later than four weeks prior to the first day of classes. However, students have the right to self-identify and request accommodations at any time during their enrollment at Valencia College. For information on programs, special equipment, and other services available for students with documented disabilities, please contact the Office for Students with Disabilities on the campus you would like to attend. All Valencia campuses are accessible for students with physical limitations.
Classes may be canceled during registration due to low enrollment or the ability to find a qualified instructor. If a course is canceled, every effort will be made to notify the students involved and to help them find a suitable substitute class. Notifications will be sent to students' Atlas e-mail account. Important: Check your Atlas e-mail account frequently.
