Valencia College won the 2012 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence, recognizing it as the best two-year college in the United States. We were named the best because we provide a quality education and help students reach their goals. We have one of the highest graduation rates in the country and provide guaranteed transfer to a state university. Valencia College is a more affordable place to start your U.S. education. We provide the first two years of a bachelor’s degree, but our tuition costs 40 percent less than a state university’s. We also have great professors and advisors, small class sizes, and plenty of support resources to help you succeed. With more than 175 countries represented on our campuses, Valencia College welcomes students from all over the world. And, wherever you come from, we’ll help you have a successful U.S. college experience.
