You will be admitted to Valencia College as a degree-seeking student if you have a standard high school diploma or a state-issued General Educational Development (GED) diploma.

If you do not have a high school diploma or GED, you may be admitted as a Provisional non-degree seeking student.

Application Timeline

PLEASE NOTE: Your admissions application will not be processed without the non-refundable admissions application fee. Admissions applications are normally processed within seven (7) business days of receipt. However, between November 1 to January 15, July 1 to August 31, and April 1 to May 15, it may take additional time for your admissions application to be processed due to the large number of applications received.

Financial aid applicants must have all official final academic transcripts received and evaluated before their financial aid will be disbursed. Please allow adequate time for this process to occur. The evaluation of transfer credit takes at least 20 business days (from the date the official transcript is received) to complete. Official academic transcripts are not evaluated for non-degree seeking students (personal interest, technical certificate, transient, teacher recertification, or job improvement). You must be in a degree seeking program in order for your official college/university academic transcript(s) to be evaluated.

You will initially be admitted as a non-degree seeking student until your official final academic transcript(s) are received. Order your official final high school and/or college transcript(s) and have them sent directly to:
