Tuition and Fees - Fall 2014
Because NOVA is a public community college with financial support from the Commonwealth of Virginia, the College offers its students an exceptional educational value. In fact, NOVA's tuition is among the lowest of any college or university in the Washington, D.C. area.
Enrollment costs at NOVA are based on a tuition-and-fee charge per credit hour, and are the same for credit or audit courses.
The College does not send bills for tuition—you are responsible for paying your tuition on time.
