Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

I can learn so much at Valencia, and it doesn't cost that much. I have friends who complain about prices at other colleges, but thanks to Valencia's fantastic prices, I can afford to go to college. In fact, I plan on taking as many required classes as I can at Valencia because they're so inexpensive.
Heather from Orlando, FL
The classes are much cheaper than Universities but are the same courses. This is the best choice.
Toleen from Orlando, FL
I have taken 18 credit hours for the last two semesters here at Valencia and let me tell you it is totally worth it to go to Valencia Community College in the aspect of price. If I were to go to a four year school and take 18 credit hours, their price would not even come close to great price that Valencia charges.
John from Winter Springs, FL
As far as price VCC is awesome. Being it's a community college its cheaper than a University such as UCF but the price is great. And they give you a lot of free stuff as well like your parking pass and student identification card. Getting financial aid is easy also they'll help you every step of the way.
Joshua from Tampa, FL
College will always be expense-filled, but attending VCC is definitely the choice for those on a strict budget. Many of the classes here line up with the courses offered at universities for several times the amount charged at Valencia. Many people avoid the idea of attending a community college because they want to jump right into the 4-year university experience. There's a generally negative opinion of attending community colleges; that it's for those with low grades or that it's just not the cool thing to do. It may not be the coolest thing to do, but it definitely is the smartest thing to do for your wallet if you like to think long term.
Brianna from Gotha, FL
Great college to save a lot of money on. Valencia is now a 4 year college so anyone can complete a bachelors degree there. Paying for classes is half as much compared to going to a University.
Dereck from Orlando, FL
Its good.
Glenieliz from Kissimmee, FL
Valencia is a lot cheaper in several things compared to other colleges, and that is why I recommend starting here, and then if you want, transfer over to another college or university...
