Click here for information regarding Spring Registration for Continuing Students

Thank you for choosing to continue your academic studies with NOVA. We look forward to your return to NOVA in Fall 2009. Because you have registered for classes in the past, you are already familiar with the enrollment process. Simply follow the steps outlined below. If you need more information, refer to the section for new student admission on page X.

NOTE: If it has been more than three years since your last class at NOVA, you must reapply for admission.

STEP 1          Apply for Financial Aid
If you haven’t already filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for 2009-2010, please complete the process no later than May 1 to ensure that aid will be awarded in time to pay your tuition and fees for Fall 2009. See the Financial Aid section (page 14) for more information. Be sure to include the College’s School Code: 003727

STEP 2          Meet With Your Advisor
Set up a meeting with your faculty advisor or counselor before you register to make sure you’re taking the right courses to achieve your academic goals. This is especially important if you plan to transfer to another college or university.

If you will be graduating, you must meet with your faculty advisor as soon as possible, but no later than September 15 to review your academic record. You must submit your application for Fall semester graduation to the Student Service Center by October 1, but earlier is better. http://www.nvcc.edu/current-students/graduation/index.html

STEP 3          Enroll in Classes – Priority Registration by Assigned Day
Continuing students may register April 14 – May 4 on their assigned day, or thereafter. You can find out which day you can begin to register by logging onto NOVAConnect any time beginning April 3.

The Priority Registration schedule is as follows:

April 14 (Tuesday) through May 4 (Monday) – Priority Registration by assigned start day.

May 5 – June 8 – NOVAConnect registration is suspended for fall.

June 9 – Open Registration for All Students resumes.

To enroll for classes, use NOVAConnect on the Web or the NOVAConnect telephone enrollment system at 703–323–3770 or 703–330–3770 (Prince William County). See page 21 for NOVAConnect Telephone Enrollment assistance.

STEP 4          Pay Your Tuition
See the Tuition, Payment, and Refund Information on page 12 for a step-by-step guide to paying your tuition and fees. Be sure to pay your tuition by the deadline date indicated.

You are financially responsible for all classes for which you register; therefore, you should
check your account through NOVAConnect to verify that all tuition and fees have been paid. If you decide to drop a class, you must cancel it through NOVAConnect or notify the College.

If you fail to do so, you will be charged for that class and may receive a failing grade. If you wish to pay your tuition in installments, you must enroll in the Deferred Tuition Payment Plan before your tuition due date. Click here for more information or to enroll online.

STEP 5          Print Receipts
Remember to print out a copy of your class schedule every time you make a change. Don’t forget to print out a copy of your payment receipt also.

STEP 6          Buy Your Books
You can purchase your books at the campus bookstore where the course is taught (ELI books available at Alexandria), or order them online. Students with adequate financial aid may use that aid to purchase textbooks at the College’s bookstores from August 10 to September 10.

24 Hours After You Enroll:

STEP 7          Buy Your Parking Permit (not required at ARL, RES, or off-campus locations)
Beginning June 9, permits can be purchased online at http://parking.nvcc.edu and your permit will then be mailed to you. Temporary, seven-day passes can be printed from the Web site for immediate use. See the New Student section on page 6 for complete details. Parking enforcement begins September 3.

STEP 8          Get Your Student Identification Card (NOVACard)…
