Student Support Services

The Answer Center

Even before you become a Valencia student, the Answer Center is there for you. It should be your first stop for questions about admissions, residency and financial aid. The Answer Center has locations on every Valencia campus and provides help on a walk-in basis.

Student Success Course

This course is a great elective for new students looking to gain some college survival skills. It will help you develop techniques for managing your time, studying, taking tests, setting educational and career goals, and using Valencia resources.

Tutoring and Academic Help

Free tutoring services are available for all subject areas. With group and one-on-one tutoring options, you can get the academic assistance you need, no matter your learning style. Math, reading and writing support is available on all campuses, while offerings for other subjects vary from campus to campus.

 Career Centers

Located on each campus, the Career Centers are available to assist you with making career decisions, setting career goals, writing résumés and cover letters, and interviewing techniques. We also offer assessments, internship opportunities, recruitment fairs and job-search tools to help you explore your options.

 Libraries

Valencia has a library on each campus, offering a wide variety of educational resources – from books and periodicals to eBooks, CDs and videos. The libraries also provide computer workstations for accessing the Internet and over 140 online databases. Librarians and other qualified staff are available to help you with research, reference documentation, interlibrary loans, and learning technologies.

 Online Resources

In addition to free Wi-Fi and campus computer labs, Valencia offers a host of online services through Atlas, our online learning community. Each student receives their own Atlas account where they can check email, register for classes, access admissions and financial aid records, and connect to educational and career planning resources.

 Advising Services

Academic advisors and counselors are available to assist with career and educational planning, academic and personal challenges, transferring to a university and more. Current Valencia students can get help on a walk-in basis at any Student Services office. In addition, A.S. and A.A.S. students will be assigned to a Career Program Advisor who can provide program-specific academic advising.

We also offer specialized advising services for veterans , international students and students with disabilities.
