Schedule of classes --


Before You Start…
Complete the Schedule Planning Worksheet before trying to enroll. Keep your worksheet for future reference or print out your schedule using NovaConnect.

Searching for Classes Online

You can search for courses online by going to the Schedule Search at http://www.nvcc.edu/schedule/crs2083/.

Select the search options for the classes you want, click “search” and scroll until you find the right course. You can search by academic discipline, campus location and/or session.

The online course listing displays the specific details of each section.

You can also log onto NovaConnect and search for a course by course prefix and number, or by class number. To reveal the detailed course information, you must click on the class section number link.

Course Prerequisites
Some classes indicate that a prerequisite or co-requisite is needed to take that particular class. These requirements may be listed under the course, but also can be found in NOVA’s Catalog under “Course Descriptions.” You may not enroll in a course if you have not met the prerequisites by the time the course begins.

Repeating a Class
Before registering for a class that you have previously taken, see NOVA’s Catalog or the College’s Web site at www.nvcc.edu for information on repeating a class.

Auditing a Class
If you wish to take a course but not receive a grade, you must enroll for it in the usual way and then change to audit. Complete the form NVCC 125-12 Change from Credit to Audit and have it signed by your instructor and the division dean. The Student Services Center must receive the signed form by the last day to withdraw without grade penalty or change to audit (see Important Dates). The course will be listed on your transcript with a grade of X.

Student Development (SDV) Courses
First-time college students are required to take SDV 100 or another SDV course before enrolling for their 16th semester hour at the College. To get the most out of your college education, you should take the SDV/College Success Skills course during your first semester at NOVA. These courses are designed to build your confidence and college skills, develop your college and career plans, and help you navigate the college administrative requirements.
