Schedule of Classes -
Thank you for choosing to continue your academic studies with NOVA. We look forward to your return to NOVA in Spring 2010. 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 October 1 to ensure that aid will be awarded in time to pay your tuition and fees for Spring 2010. 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 apply online for Spring 2010 semester graduation by March 1, but earlier is better. For more information see http://www.nvcc.edu/current-students/graduation/index.html
STEP 3 Enroll in Classes – Priority Registration by Assigned Day
Continuing students may register November 10 - 13 on their assigned day, or thereafter. You can find out which day you can begin to register by logging onto NOVAConnect any time beginning November 5..
The Priority Registration schedule is as follows:
November 10–13 – Priority Registration by assigned start day.Priority registration continues through November15 (Sunday).
November 16– Open registration for all students begins.
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 or drop the undesired classes. If you fail to do so, you will be charged for that class and recieve a failing grade. 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 wish to pay your tuition in installments, you must enroll in the Deferred Tuition Payment Plan before your tuition due date. For more information or to enroll online, go to www.nvcc.edu/tuitionandfees/index.htm#methods

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.
