I'm a parent and I want to pay for my child's classes before he/she loses them. How can I pay?
Payment is ultimately the responsibility of the student. Due to federal regulation, the college is unable to release information without the students' permission. For further details, click on the following link: http://www.ed.gov/offices/OM/fpco/ferpa/
The student may create a Parent PIN for any person he/she wishes to provide the ability
to view his/her current balance and make secure online payments by electronic check

accounts. The student may also inactivate a Parent PIN at any time at his/her discretion.

- Click on Student tab
- Under the “Student Resources” click to expand "Business Office"

I know my tuition check has been returned, and I want to pay my tuition now so I will not lose my classes (Valencia shows no record of this check being returned).
Wait for notification from Valencia before you proceed to pay for your classes. Checks are automatically redeposited by our bank. If the check is returned to us, we will void the initial payment and send you notification of when the account must be settled. There will be an additional charge for the returned check added to your account, and you must pay either by credit card or cash. No personal checks will be accepted for payment of this debt.

I registered for classes on the Internet and the charges are too high. Why?
In-state fees are $99.06 per credit hour and the out of state fees are $375.22 per credit hour. Any special fees associated with a class are designated by the department and the amount is listed in the college catalog by the course description. You can learn more about the fee schedule by visit our Important Dates page. If you are attempting a class for the third time, you could be getting charged the full cost of instruction. If residency is your problem, you must visit the Answer Center for clarification.

If your employer is not an approved agency, they will need to contact Valencia's accounts receivable department to set up an agreement.
