Flex Start

Flexible schedule options to fit your busy life.

Flex Start courses are another way that Valencia College provides flexible scheduling options for you. Through Flex Start, your classes will begin later or end earlier than the official term dates. This shortens the number of weeks you’ll spend in class, but not the number of hours. A compressed schedule like this may not be right for everyone. It’s still the same amount of work, but it could be just what you need to fit college into your busy life.


How It Works

  • If you miss registration, you can still take Flex Start courses
  • Start courses later in the term and/or end earlier
  • Courses run on a compressed schedule
  • Courses taught in five, six, eight or ten week periods (rather than the typical 14 weeks)
