At Valencia College, you’ll get a quality education at a price you can afford. We offer the same education as a state university, only at about half the cost. And, with smaller campuses and classes, you’ll get more support along the way. You’ll also have the flexibility to take classes when and where you want—day, night, weekend or online. And, Flex Start courses are starting all the time. Then, when you’re finished, you’ll be ready to go straight into a high-skill, high-wage job, continue at Valencia College to earn a bachelor's degree or transfer to a four-year university as a junior.
