How Much Will Early Online College Courses Cost?

Tuition for up to two courses will be paid via scholarship. Students do not owe tuition and fees for courses enrolled through the Early Online College program. Students are responsible for any textbooks or course materials required.

Students will see a tuition bill for their Early Online College courses and will receive email reminders to make a payment. Please disregard these reminders. As long as you followed the registration procedures and were enrolled through the Office of Dual Enrollment, NOVA will apply your scholarship to cover tuition and fees for your EOC course no later than the last day of class. You are responsible for tuition and fees for any courses enrolled outside of the EOC program.
