Types of Payment. There is no deferred payment of tuition. (Note: You must pay in full to reserve your course registrations.) You may pay by any of the following methods:
     Credit Card—Visa and MasterCard are accepted over NovaConnect. Click on the "Make a Payment" button on the Web page and follow the instructions for a credit card payment. Be sure to print out a copy of your confirmation number to have for future reference. The telephone NovaConnect system is also available for credit card payments.
     Check or Money Order—You may mail a check or money order to a campus Business Office. Addresses for each campus are on the back cover of this schedule.
     Cash—Cash payments are accepted only in person at the campus Business Office.
     Financial Aid—To pay with approved financial aid, you must have received an Official Financial Aid Award Letter from the NVCC College Financial Aid Office. In the event your award does not fully cover your tuition/fees, please complete payments using NovaConnect or in person at a campus Business Office.
     Contract Payment—You must submit contract documents to a campus Business Office. If your contract was mailed or faxed by the authorizing agency, you must notify the campus Business Office at the time you register to ensure the contract is applied to your financial account. By using an agency or employer contract/authorization, you agree to accept responsibility for the full amount of tuition if the agency/employer does not pay within 30 days after invoice.

    Please verify your registration and payment status by using NovaConnect. You may also make separate or additional credit-card payments after registration by using NovaConnect. We urge you to visit NovaConnect on the Web at http://www.nvcc.edu/novaconnect/ to obtain your official course schedule. Students who have received their financial aid award letters are encouraged to verify their financial aid information on the College Web site at http://www.nvcc.edu.
     In order to avoid financial responsibility, you must drop a class if you decide not to attend. DO NOT assume you will be dropped automatically.

    REFUNDS
    Tuition refunds are not automatic, except for courses canceled by the College. If you wish to drop a course, you must either use NovaConnect or complete a Registration Worksheet and submit it to a campus Admissions and Records Office in person, by mail, or FAX. See campus FAX numbers listed in the front of this schedule. However the Registration Worksheet is submitted, it must be received in the Admissions and Records Office by the end of posted business hours on the last published drop date. If the drop form is received after that date, you will not be eligible for a tuition refund.

The last date that you may drop a course and receive a refund is indicated in the "Important Dates" page in the Schedule of Classes or in the College Calendar at http://www.nvcc.edu/calendars/. (ELI refund dates are included in the course information sent to you.) If the College cancels a course or you drop a full 16-week semester course by January 23, 2004 (or within the first 15% of a shorter term course), you are eligible for a refund and the course will be deleted from your record. No refunds will be made after the specified dates.
    If you paid tuition fees by credit card, refunds due you will be credited to the credit card account only when you use the Web NovaConnect to process your refund to the credit card. Credit card refunds will not be processed at the campus Business Offices. All other refunds are processed by the Virginia State Treasurer’s Office after the published add/drop period and should be received by mail within a few weeks of that date. Refund checks, except those requested by students who presented employer contracts, will be made payable to the student.
    As provided by federal regulation, if you receive Title IV (federal student aid) financial aid and you withdraw from all your courses within 60% of the enrollment period, you are subject to having a portion of your financial aid returned to the program based on the date of your withdrawal. Such refunds are credited to the student aid programs from which you received aid. These policies are available from the College Financial Aid and Business Offices.

HOPE SCHOLARSHIP AND LIFETIME LEARNING TAX CREDITS
    Taxpayers may be eligible to claim a nonrefundable Hope Scholarship or Lifetime Learning Tax Credit to help them pay for postsecondary education for themselves and/or their dependent children. These tax credits can reduce the amount of federal income tax.

Hope Scholarship Tax Credit. This tax credit is available to a taxpayer for qualified tuition and related expenses. It is available to parents of dependent students or to students who are not claimed as dependents on their parents’ federal tax return. A student must enroll at least half time during at least one academic period during the tax year (January 1, 2004 - December 31, 2004). The Hope credit can be claimed only for two tax years and applies only to the first two years of postsecondary education. The tax credit is equal to all of the first $1,000 of tuition and fees (less scholarships, grants, and tax-free tuition benefits) and half of the next $1,000 of tuition and fees. The maximum credit is $1,500. A student cannot have a drug felony conviction in a year that the credit applies.
     Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. This credit applies to tuition and fees for undergraduate, graduate, and continuing-education course work taken part time to improve or upgrade job skills. A family can claim a credit equal to 20 percent of $5,000 of eligible educational expenses paid after June 30, 1998, and prior to January 1, 2003, and up to 20% of $10,000 of eligible expenses paid after January 1, 2003. The maximum benefit is $1,000 each tax year. Eligible education expenses are reduced by scholarships, grants, and other tax-free tuition benefits.

    (Note: For both programs the credit is phased out for joint filers adjusted for inflation. See the 2003 IRS Form 8863 for the revised A61 limits.)

What You Need to Do:

    1. For each tax year, keep copies of documents related to payment of qualified tuition and fees, such as canceled checks or credit card statements, financial aid awards, scholarships received, and employer-paid tuition benefits.
    2. Obtain relevant IRS forms and documents, such as IRS Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Higher Education. Telephone: 1-800-829-3676 for forms and 1-800-829-1040 for information.
    3. Visit the IRS Web site at http://www.irs.ustreas.gov/hot/not97-601.html
or NVCC’s Web site at http://www.nvcc.edu/sis/web/default.htm for more information.

  1. For College reporting to the IRS, make sure that Admissions and Records has an accurate social security number (SSN) or individual taxpayer identification number (ITIN) and address for you and any individual who can claim you as a dependent on the federal tax return.
  2. Send the Hope Scholarship and Lifetime Learning Tax Credit Form in this schedule, to the Admissions and Records Office at any campus.
