wow thank you for this, idk why more students dont do this. do you mind explaining what the schedule is like? and cost? because those are two things i cant find answers to. and now im freaking out lol

Cost..... textbook, Castlebranch fee, UCF version of Castlebranch and equipment... I'd say $1500. Valencia tuition is about $1100 with UCF course tuition around $700 per semester.

FYI UCF side of the concurrent program doesn't know this yet but since 2017 Valencia does not give financial aid for the UCF courses you take in concurrent. Everyone in financial aid department will say otherwise as they don't know and only going off of what use to be the case. I actually got in touch with the Valencia financial aid contact for concurrent and she confirmed there is no financial aid for the UCF course ever since they got audited by the DoE back in 2017.

Which means you will only get 3/4 financial aid as you'll only be in 3/4 attendance at Valencia without the UCF course.

Schedule can vary but so far for nursing 1 it's Monday and Wednesday lecture til noon, Thursdays all day lab/ half day lab + half day clinicals half way through the term. Fridays morning is concurrent Pathophysiology.

Jeez this sounds brutal. Glad I avoided this program and got into SSC's. Good luck to everyone

After PoMiiii and others withdrew, they offered 2% in extra credit due to my section's class average below in the low 70s  and anything below a 77% is failing. So, unfortunately for him or her, they might have passed if they stayed.

They said throughout the term there was no extra credit but after the withdraw deadline our class average was still several percentage points below failing so they made a last minute decision. So it sorta screwed the people that withdrew and didn't want to risk failing versus the people that stayed and were heading towards taking a 10 credit F. But just saying, I knew well over a handful of people that were failing and thanks to extra credit just barely squeaked by.

Hey,

I realized they never discussed what hair colors are allowed in orientation. Does anyone know how strict they are with this?
