Tuition is payable by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) through VCCS SIS: Student Information System in myNOVA. Tuition is also payable by cash, check, money order, NOVA’s Tuition Payment Plan, contract or approved financial aid (except Work-Study).
Students With Financial Aid
If you are enrolled in classes that are not eligible to be covered by Financial Aid, you must either replace those courses with eligible courses or make payment to the college for the total amount of tuition and fees for those ineligible classes. In addition, make sure that your total bill for eligible classes is covered by anticipated aid or some other type of payment.
Your payment for ineligible classes may appear to be allocated across all your enrolled classes. As long as your payment to the college is equal to the total tuition and fees of your ineligible classes, and the balance of your bill is covered, your enrollment in ineligible classes should be protected.
Credit and debit card payments must be made online. Those payments cannot be made at Business Offices. Cash and checks are accepted at any one of our six campus Business Office locations and can be applied to specific ineligible courses, as needed.
The College accepts checks and money orders made out for the exact amount payable to the order of NOVA or NVCC. Checks made payable to the order of the College and the student are also accepted. The College can also accept wire transfer of funds from a bank to pay tuition. Students must contact a campus business manager for specific instructions. All checks must include the student’s name and identification number. There are no exceptions.
