15-Week Session for Fall 2020

NOTE: Beginning in the Fall 2020 Semester, NOVA will operate on a base 15-week session instead of a base 16-week. Further dates and details will be available before priority registration begins for Fall 2020.

On-Time Registration

All students must register prior to the start of their course. Registration in SIS ends at 11:59 p.m. the day before a session begins. Students who register after that day and time must come to campus in person to sign up for a course that has open seats and has not started yet. Once students register, they have until 5:00 p.m. the next business day to pay for the course. Students cannot register for a class that already started and cannot add/swap a class once it has begun. Any schedule adjustment needed after a course has begun requires permission from the academic dean.
