Valencia is a great school to transition into a 4 year university, I have had an extremely helpful experience here. There are lots of resources for students to use, and I try my best to take advantage. There are online counselors and support available 24hrs, I love this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Extremely upset by Valencia's incompetency. In order to join the college, I am required to take PERT. Which is understandable. However, the day prior to going in to take the MATH section, I called to make certain (giving my VID and Full Name so they could look me up specifically) that I could take the test. I was told yes, I can come in tomorrow and take the math portion of my test. So, I wake up, take my expensive medication, and go just to be told that 'no, you can't take math before reading and writing'. Nowhere on their website does it mention an order in which the PERT must be taken, even the math practice/study guide is listed before reading and writing. And there was 'nothing they could do'. So thanks for wasting a week studying plus a three hour drive to come take the test on campus just to be turned away.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Everyone on campus seem to be friendly. I had visited the campus a few times and there will always be food served for free from the students and extracurricular activities. Its great how Valencia have 120+ programs including 2 and 4 year degrees. There's always events happening at campus; students and even professors are involved. Speaking about professors, they are always reminding you about any upcoming assignments that are due to make sure you are on track; and they are quick to communicate back with their students, if a student have questions about anything.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Though Valencia College is only a community college, it prioritizes their students and makes sure that the students are headed in the direction of success. In my personal experience, I was given the best opportunities and teachers needed in order to reach a better future. Valencia gave me the best college experience to be able to go out and be able to adapt to University life with ease. The teachers are always working to help you with any questions you need answers, the student atmosphere is safe and inviting, and the administration work hard toward making everything easy for not jsut the student, but for their families too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valencia College is not the first choice for me, but once I was there the feeling that it was the best choice I could have made comes often. The campus is small, but the diversity makes it feel big and alive. Plenty of opportunities to volunteer, join clubs and extracurricular activities. Help is always on the way! They try their best to help their students to the max, if they cannot help you they will lookup someone who can. Classes are just the right size for interactions between student and professors. Overall, Valencia College is great, even if it was not the first choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Speaking from the parent side. My son attended the Film Program Valencia in 2012 & 2013. First, we were led to believe by the professor leading the program when touring the school that Valencia was jointly working on a project with Full Sail "To write Love on your Arms" with Kat Dennings, Corban Bleu and Chad Micheal Murray. Found out a few years later this was untrue. Valencia was merely a guest on the set. Admissions was a nightmare as when you call they always tell you to come in for "any" question. a big problem is that not all students attending live in the area. We live about 5 hours away. We had to send in our financial taxes 3 times. 1st time sent Priority envelope with tracking they said they never received them , 2nd time I sent them in using priority signature (Still could not locate even though someone signed for it!!!). I was about to explode, and they finally let me fax it over. So, our tax information with all our confidential info is floating around the school somewhere. Great!! Ok let's talk about the program. Fridays for the students are "movie" days. That's all they did was watch movies wow! Son would come home and I would ask "how did they do this scene in the movie"? He could not answer because they never taught the students that!?? What the hell! He learned more from a "behind the scenes television show"than what he was being taught at that college. Did the school have a green screen? No! They actually had a field trip to a studio with one. But if you did not have your own transportation you did not get to see it. Pathetic! Ok how about hands on camera experience? Let's say, "Nada"! The school invested 30 thousand dollars in one nice video movie camera, but would not allow the students to touch it. It was reserved for teachers and possibly students who already graduated and came back to work on a project. Equally, when they rented expensive equipment, the students were rarely allowed to touch it. It would have been better if they invested in 15 or more older model cameras 6-8 years old and got them off eBay so the students could have hands on experience. My son now has acquired an $8,000 video camera that works great off eBay for $700.00. Yes, it's about 7 years old, but who cares if it's not the latest model; it still does the job. Did I mention the students never wrote a script? They didn't even get to produce a fake commercial or have casting calls for a scene. Nope! However, scripts came across the professors desk and what did the students get to work on that year? A former Play boys bunny's YouTube video who was basically naked on a bedroom set prop. Yep! Good going Valencia teach the students the essence of porn. When parents started complaining. The kids were told to get used to it, as its part of the industry, and if they wanted to they could leave the program. Well Valencia I'd like to say not everything in life is garbage. I would have rather had my kid have made several hands on "fake" commercials for the experience sake than have my sons resume name attached to or listed in the credits for a porn stars video! If you think low, thats the kind of job your going to get offered! Now fast forward to 2019. My son does not work on films for a job. He teaches classes in photo shop part-time after school program to kids. We ran into a former classmate at Universal Studios who takes tourist pictures. Wow! That's really using your film degree! Look at what it says on their website that the students have a 85 percent or higher placement in their field. That the professors help students get their foot in the door. Really? No one has ever contacted my son to ask if he is working in the field or to help with employment. So, where is Valencia getting their statistics? I know the head film professor past away a few years ago. In 1990 Steven Spielberg gave a good review of the Valencia film program, maybe it was good back then? It's my belief that some of the professors became complacent, it was a nice way to collect a pay check with little effort. Who does that end up hurting? The Students!

I love my school it has so many resources available to me that easy to access, and that to me is the most important when coming in as anew student. Also the faculty has been nothing but a pleasure. All have been very informative in so many areas which is nothing but a breath of fresh air.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Valencia College is a beautiful school, and pretty huge for a college. It's scattered around, but easy to spot. The environment of the school is amazing, and so are the people. They have many majors that are very interesting and available to everyone. They also have direct transfer into UCF which is pretty cool.
