Open Houses Offer Help and Scholarships to New Students

Valencia College will hold open houses on three of its larger campuses to help prospective students find out more about available programs—including current and upcoming bachelor’s degree programs. Called Valencia 360°, the open houses will also provide information on the school’s new Honors College, study-abroad opportunities and DirectConnect to UCF, the program that guarantees Valencia grads can get into UCF as juniors.

Faculty or staff from each of the programs will be available to talk with students and their families, and admissions staff will explain the application process. Representatives from the college’s financial aid office will also be on hand to answer questions about scholarships, grants and loans that might be available to students.

In addition, visitors can register for a chance to win a $500 scholarship to Valencia. Six scholarships in all will be given away, two per campus; you must be a new student to win.

More information, including a registration form, is available at Those interested are encouraged to attend the campus that offers their program of study, which can be found on the website.
