The majority of funding for continued operations at Valencia is determined by the Florida Legislature. Therefore, required fees and other financial policies are dictated by Florida statute.
Class Deletion, Drop, or Withdrawal
Administrative WithdrawalIf you owe the college any money after the end of the Drop/refund period, the college has the option to withdraw you from all registered classes. You will still owe the balance plus any other fees if they are charged. You are not eligible for a refund.
Student Initiated DropYou can drop a class or all of your classes before the end of the Drop/refund period and are entitled to a 100% refund of the refundable fees. Your Valencia account will be credited, and after all fees have been paid, a check or charge card credit will be issued. Refer to the college catalog for further information.
Student Initiated WithdrawalYou may withdraw from a class or all of your classes after the end of the official Drop/refund period, but before the mid-session withdrawal deadline. However, you are not eligible for a refund. If you owe the college any money, you will still have to pay that balance. Refer to the college catalog for further information.
Class DeletionYou are responsible for payment for all classes not dropped from your schedule by the Drop/Refund Deadline listed in the Important College Calendar Dates section of the catalog and in the Credit Class Schedule. Non-attendance in any course(s) will not qualify you for a waiver of your financial responsibility for the course(s). If you do not pay by the specified date and time, you may lose all of your classes and will have to attempt to re-register. It is your responsibility to review your account with the college.
To receive a 100% refund of the refundable fees, students must drop from a course or all courses before the last day of the Drop/refund period as listed in the credit class schedule.
If you withdraw from a class after the Add/refund period but before the withdrawal deadline, you will receive a grade of "W" and will not be entitled to a refund of fees.
If you withdraw from a course after the withdrawal deadline, you will be issued a grade of "W", and a refund will not be granted.
If you have recieved financial aid, or if your fees were paid by an approved agency, you might be entitled to a refund after proper credits are first issued to the awarding agency. Refund policies are established by and subject to change by the Legislature of the State of Florida.
For refund purposes, the first day of classes is the one designated "Classes Begin" as published in the College's catalog and the class schedule, and does not refer to the first scheduled class day for any particular student.
Collection of Debt
If you are currently enrolled and have a returned check, delinquent loan, delinquent VA deferment or other financial obligation, you will be notified. If you do not respond within the allowed time, the college reserves the right to financially withdraw a student from all classes. All fees on the account remain. This applies even if you do not attend any classes. Until your indebtedness is paid, you will not be allowed to enroll in a subsequent term or receive your college records. Please be advised that checks returned unpaid to the College's bank will be automatically redeposited for collection. Consequently, you may be assessed returned check charges by your banking institution, in addition to a returned check fee from Valencia. The college reserves the right to submit for collection all accounts deemed delinquent to an external collection service. The College will notify all students before this action will be taken. However, once an account is submitted, up to 30% fee will be assessed to the outstanding balance of your Valencia account and payment must be rendered to the collections agency directly after submission.
