The Valencia Difference

As the inaugural winner of the Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, Valencia is recognized as one of the best colleges in the nation. At Valencia, 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 or weekend at any of our five campuses, 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 or transfer to a four-year university as a junior with guaranteed admission.

CLUBS AND ORGANIZATIONS

Valencia offers more than 60 groups, clubs and organizations, including clubs for movie, book, art and animal lovers, clubs for African-American, Latino, Caribbean and Muslim students, career interest groups, student government and Valencia Volunteers. We also offer intramural sports and campus fitness centers for aspiring athletes and those who just want to stay in shape.

CAMPUS ACTIVITIES

From film festivals to music and dance concerts, plays, guest speakers and cultural events, there’s always something happening on Valencia’s campuses. The biggest student event is Spirit Day, a festival held each fall. A long-standing tradition, this fun-filled event features music, food, games and contests.

AROUND TOWN

Year-round sunshine, local theme parks and nearby beaches have made Central Florida a vacation destination—and a great place to live. In addition to nearby theme parks, shopping and restaurants, Valencia students can take advantage of downtown Orlando’s unique arts venues and music scene. Sports fanatics can cheer on the UCF Knights at their new football stadium nearby the East Campus or catch a Magic game at the Amway arena in downtown Orlando.

STUDY ABROAD

Valencia’s study abroad program prepares students to live, work, and collaborate effectively in a global community by providing learning experiences that promote an understanding of cultural diversity, increase language acquisition and fluency, and develop intercultural competency.
