What are the safety precautions taken at Valencia College?

To ensure that our campus environments remain safe and healthy, Valencia College officials are closely monitoring developments related to the rapidly changing Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Valencia College continues working with local and state health departments and are following the latest state and federal guidelines. As new information becomes available, we will update this site.

Is it necessary to quarantine 14 days before arriving to campus?

Not necessarily, please follow the CDC guidelines in preparation for arrival and review the Roadmap for Reopening website.

What will be the method of instruction for fall 2021?

Valencia College will be offering a mix of course formats. The majority of our courses will be offered in online formats. Online courses will be offered as both traditional online courses, in which you can access course materials and lectures at a time that works for you, as well as real-time virtual courses, which are courses that include virtual meetings during designated time periods. New international students that are arriving in the US will be required to take face to face hours. Valencia College will have courses reserved for new international students with face to face requirements.
