Payment Methods & Deadlines - Spring '15
Our scholarships, grants, loans and work-study opportunities can make your college education more affordable than you ever thought possible. Need-based financial aid is not available to international students, although many students can qualify for loans without demonstrating need.
Spring 2015 Deadlines
Applies to all credit classes.
Dynamic Session Classes: Although you may see other tuition due dates when viewing your account online, you may follow these payment deadlines.
For 16-week and first 8-week sessions, you can enroll until 11:59 p.m. January 11 and pay by January 12. For the other sessions, you can enroll until 11:59 p.m. the day before the session begins and pay by the next day.
|If you enroll:||Tuition payment is due:|
|Through December 15||By 5 p.m. December 16, or your classes may be dropped|
|December 16 or later||By 5 p.m. the next business day after you enroll, or your classes may be dropped|
NOVA may drop your classes if tuition is not paid by the deadline.
Payments by cash, check, or money order must be received at a campus business office before 5 p.m. the next business day.
Payments by credit card using NOVAConnect are due before 5 p.m. on the next business day after you enroll.
If you have sufficient approved financial aid (identified as anticipated financial aid on your NOVAConnect Account Summary), a current tuition assistance agreement (third-party contract), a senior citizen waiver, or are enrolled in NOVA's Tuition Payment Plan, your classes will be protected. If your anticipated financial aid or third-party contract is not sufficient to pay all tuition and fee charges, you must pay the difference by the due date or you will be dropped from unpaid classes.
Federal Financial Aid Recipients
If you receive federal student aid (Title IV) and withdraw from any class within 60 percent of the enrollment period and are not simultaneously attending other classes, in most cases, you will owe money back to the College. For additional information, please visit the Financial Aid Support Center and link to "Withdraw & Return to Title IV Policy" or read the Return to Title IV Policy in its entirety in the Student Services financial aid handbook.
For more information, call the Tuition and Fees Hotline at 703.323.3803 for Business Office hours at each campus.
NOVA accepts payment by credit card using Visa, MasterCard or American Express. Credit cards are not accepted at campus Business Offices. You can complete all your business transactions with the College by using NOVAConnect.
To pay online, just click on the "Go to QuikPAY" button on the Web page and follow the instructions. The system may take a few minutes to process your payment, so don't click the payment authorization more than once! Be sure to print out a copy of your confirmation number to have for future reference.
Refunds to your credit card are only available for payments made on NOVAConnect Web. All other refunds will be issued as checks payable to the student. Your refund will not be processed unless all debts to the College have been paid. Refunds for other services such as parking must be requested from the office providing the service.
|Check or Money Order|
Payments may be made in person or mailed to any campus Business Office payable to NVCC or NOVA, but must be received by 5 p.m. on the date of your payment deadline indicated in the table above.
Cash payments are accepted only in person at the campus Business Office.
|Pay in Installments Using NOVA's Payment Plan|
NOVA’s Tuition Payment Plan allows students to pay their tuition in monthly, interest-free installments for a small non-refundable enrollment fee. Payment methods include automatic bank payment (ACH) and credit/debit card (MasterCard, American Express, and Discover only). A convenience fee of 2.5 percent will be charged in addition to the enrollment fee.
After a NOVA Payment Plan agreement has been completed, classes will be protected until payment has been received from the NBS. For additional information about the NOVA Payment Plan, please contact the NOVA Payment Plan Information Line at 703.450.2562 or email NOVAPaymentPlan@nvcc.edu.
