Graduation Rate

Loading...
42%
BELOW AVERAGE

Valencia College graduation rate is below the national average.

42% of full-time students enrolled for the first time to Valencia College completed the education program and got a degree in 150 percent of the expected time of completion.

The graduation rate value includes only programs that were completed less than six years for four-year degrees or less than three years for two-year degrees.

Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This index doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture. Combining this data with graduation rate is a better way to compare educational institutions.

Student Reviews and Ratings for Valencia College

Every experience I’ve had with this school everyone either has an attitude when you ask for help or they give you the wrong answer!! It doesn’t take much to be a decent human being. People are coming in to better their lives and when you are an “advisor” or working at a help desk, can’t help people in the right direction to get started on this journey and you hate your job THAT much then you should just quit.

I had never had a problem with this college. Very helpful and nice staff and professors. The admission process is a little bit tedious, yes, but after the first semester everything is easy and goes smoothly. Also, I recommend Ms. Shanay Morris as a student advisor if you are in west campus. The orientation is a waste of time, they do not explain the registration process well. I had to get some help from a former student whose a friend of mine.

I hate having to call Valencia in general! The wait time is absolutely outrageous! I have things to do and i don’t have time to wait the phone forever. I waited on the line to talk to someone in the business office which is where i usually call and i have to wait a very long time! I know it’s not that hard to answer the phone on time! Y’all are so annoying it’s getting out of hand! If i would have to drive to the campus because I’m so frustrated to the point i would want to curse everyone at that business office but that’s not what I’m going to do, anyways i was waiting and the lady finally answered by the time i could say hello she hang up. Unbelievable. For the amount of time i was waiting she couldn’t give me a few seconds to answer! I really need y’all to answer the phone the second it ring because i shouldn’t have to wait for 10mins or more. People got places to go and things to do. I can’t sit next to a phone waiting for someone to finally answer !

Stay away. It's the most backwardly "organized" business. No structure or consistency at all. Same class, one professor requests only textbook, another professor wants the lab book AND access code. A $250 difference in teaching styles.At the Poinciana campus book store, you are told your required textbooks and access codes are available at either the Osceola, West or East campus, although the classes are physically at the Poinciana branch. What is this single building campus doing???Cannot get any more backward or ancient than this. Very good at wasting your time, life, gas and money. Ensures stress levels are high!!
