Parent Sessions

Online informational sessions for parents covering special topics on the enrollment process, the transition to college, how to support their children as they transition from high school to college, and more. With special guests and expert panels, we offer information and support to parents when they need it most.



Office for Students with Disabilities Information Sessions 

For students and parents with unique educational plans and needs preparing to transition to college. 
Join the staff from the Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) to understand the documentation requirements and process to request disability related accommodations at Valencia College. Students who are currently served in K-12 under an IEP or a 504 plan must prepare early for a successful transition if they will be requesting accommodation as IEP and 504 plans do not necessarily transfer to college.
