Important Notice

Tuition Rate Change for Fall 2023 Semester

As you plan your Fall 2023 semester, we wanted to get you some important information about NOVA’s upcoming tuition rates.

Community college tuition rates in Virginia are determined by the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) State Board. That usually happens in May, but it’s looking like it will happen later this year. That means we won’t know what tuition looks like for Fall 2023 until maybe as late as July.

Until tuition rates are set, your balance will be based on our Summer 2023 tuition rates.

  • If you pay your balance and rates increase for Fall 2023, you’ll see a new balance on your account for the difference
  • If you’re enrolled in a payment plan, your remaining scheduled payments will be updated automatically when the new rates are determined
  • If you have payment arrangements through another source (e.g., Veterans benefits or third-party billing), please work with the relevant office at NOVA.

We’ll follow up with more information as soon as possible if and when tuition rates change for Fall 2023.
