Schedule of classes - Spring 2011
What are Census Dates and Why are they Important?
Begin Promptly...Attend Regularly
When you register for a class at NOVA, you are making a commitment to attend the class regularly, either in person or online. Since the Commonwealth of Virginia contributes a significant portion of your educational costs, you must establish your attendance or participation early in the semester, rather than taking a seat that might have gone to another student.
If you do not attend at least one class meeting or participate in a Distance Learning class by the Census Date (Last Day to Drop with a Tuition Refund), your class registration will be administratively deleted.
Administrative deletion means:
- there will be no record of the class or any letter grade on your transcript;
- the course credits will be deducted from your course load;
- the reduction of credits may affect your student status (full-time or part-time); and
- you will not receive a tuition refund.
