Payment Information

Non-credit course tuition is not eligible to be paid using a payment plan. Workforce Development Division course fees are to be paid at the time of registration or you must provide proof of guaranteed payment in the form of (original, letterhead, signed) documentation.

Payment for WDD courses is due at the time of registration. You are not allowed to audit or sit in classes for which you have not paid. Payment can be made by using your credit card (VISA, MasterCard or American Express) on the Web or by paying with check or cash at any Campus Business Office.

Third Party Payment
If your tuition is being paid by a third party (employer, government agency, foreign embassy, etc.), submit a purchase order or letter of authorization with your registration. You can submit these forms in person, by mail, or fax (use black ink) (703-323-3399); but we must have the original copy of the purchase order or authorization to process your payment. If the original copy of this form is not submitted with your registration, please mail it to:

Northern Virginia Community College
Workforce Development - CE 202, Attention: Yookie Lee
8333 Little River Turnpike
Annandale, VA 22003

You are responsible for full tuition payment if the third party does not pay. You cannot register using one form of payment and switch to a third party payment at a later date.

Veterans Refund Policy (Veterans using their Benefits)
In the event that a veteran, spouse of a veteran, surviving spouse or child of a veteran is using their veterans benefits to attend school with us and that person fails to enter the course or withdrawals or is discontinued therefrom at any time prior to the completion of the course, the unused portion of the tuition and/or fees paid by the person shall be refunded. The exact amount of the refund will be determined based on the ratio of the number of days of instruction the person completed to the total number of instructional days in the course. (Example: A person attends 5 days of instruction out of 20 total instructional days. The person has completed 25% of the class. Therefore, the person would receive a refund of 75% of the total tuition.) All refunds will be made within 30 days.
