Extended Learning Institute Enrollment

Extended Learning Institute Enrollment

Students may enroll in Extended Learning Institute (ELI) online courses through NOVAConnect. Most courses have multiple sections starting throughout the semester. Details are available by calling ELI at 703-323-3368 or checking the ELI website.

Students taking their first online course at NOVA should also complete an ELI orientation, offered via webinar on multiple dates and times around the start of each semester. Check the ELI website or contact the ELI Hotline at elicoursespecialists@nvcc.edu or 703-323-3347 for registration information.

When registering for sequential courses, such as ENG 111 and ENG 112, students should sign up for only one course at a time.

To take 12 or more credits simultaneously through ELI, students must obtain permission from the director of Student Services for ELI. Contact the ELI counselors at elicounselors@nvcc.edu or 703-323-2425 for permission assistance.
