December 18

Your tuition payment is due
by 5 p.m. December 19.

Classes will be dropped if tuition is not paid by the deadline.


If you have sufficient approved or anticipated financial aid or a current tuition assistance agreement (third-party contract), your classes will be protected. If anticipated financial aid or your contract is insufficient to pay all tuition and fee charges, you must pay the difference by the due date above. Failure to make full payment may result in your classes being dropped. If you need help paying tuition and fees, consider using the FACTS Tuition Payment Plan, our interest-free, deferred tuition payment plan, or applying for financial aid.

Visit the College Web site or call the Tuition and Fees Hotline (703-323-3803) for Business Office hours at each campus.


  • FACTS Tuition Payment Plan
    To help meet students’ educational expenses, NVCC is providing the FACTS Tuition Payment Plan. For a non-refundable fee ($35, $40 or $45 depending on the number of payments selected), FACTS allows students to pay their tuition in monthly (2-4 months), interest-free payments. The earlier students enroll in the program, the lower the monthly payment option will be.

    For more information and to enroll in the program, click on the FACTS
    e-Cashier Web logo e-Cashier logo
    FACTS brochures are also available at each campus Admissions and Records office.

  • For the 2006 Spring semester registration, students can begin enrolling in FACTS online (http://www.nvcc.edu/tuitionandfees/facts.htm) starting November 16.

  • Credit Card
    Visa, MasterCard and American Express are accepted over NovaConnect Web at http://www.nvcc.edu/novaconnect/ or over NovaConnect Telephone at 703-323-3770 or 703-330-3770. On the Web, click on the “Make a Payment” button and follow the instructions for a credit card payment. The system can take a few minutes to process your payment, so don't click the payment authorization more than once! Be sure to print out a copy of your confirmation number for future reference.

  • Check or Money Order
    Payments may be made in person or mailed to any campus Business Office but must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. December 19, 2005. Include the student’s name, EmplID number (NovaConnect ID), and telephone number of the account‘s owner.
    Addresses for each campus are listed in the online schedule, and inside the back cover of the printed schedule.

  • Cash
    Cash payments are accepted only in person at the campus Business Office.

  • Financial Aid
    To pay with approved (anticipated) financial aid, you must have received an Official Financial Aid Notification Letter from the NVCC College Financial Aid Office. View your financial aid awards from NovaConnect Web. In the event your award does not fully cover your tuition/fees, you must complete payments using FACTS or NovaConnect or in person at a campus Business Office before the drop deadlines.

  • Contract Payment
    You must submit to a campus business office your employer's written authorization to be billed for your classes. 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 responsiblity 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 print out your official schedule from NovaConnect on the Web at http://www.nvcc.edu/novaconnect/ to obtain your official course schedule.

In order to avoid financial responsibility, you must drop a class within the deadline if you decide not to attend. DO NOT assume you will be dropped automatically.
