Spring 2018

Do you plan to attend classes during spring 2018 at Northern Virginia Community College? If yes, please note that registration for all spring 2018 sessions opens on November 13, 2017, and the semester begins January 10, 2018. Check the Academic Calendar for more information.

In the meantime, below are other tips and reminders to help you prepare:


  • Complete your Application for Admission online, http://www.nvcc.edu/admissions/apply/. There is no application fee, and you may apply at any time. However, it is recommended that you submit your Application for Admission to the College at least 30 days prior to the first day of classes for the semester in which you plan to enroll. This will give you an opportunity to meet with a counselor for academic assistance prior to enrollment and to take required placement tests. Once you have submitted your application, you will receive a student identification number called an EMPLID number.
  • If you are a first-time-to-college student, between the ages of 17-24 (including high school/homeschool/GED graduates), you are required to follow the Start Strong policies at NOVA, http://www.nvcc.edu/gps/.



  • We encourage you to apply for Financial Aid if you have not already done so. The AL Financial Aid Office is open Monday & Thursday: 8:30 am – 7:00 pm; Tuesday & Wednesday: 8:30 am – 5:00 pm; and Friday: 11:00 am – 5:00 pm. You can also call Financial Aid Support Center, 1.855.323.3199.


  • If you register for spring 2018 classes through December 11, your tuition payment is due by 5:00 pm on December 12, 2017. If you register on December 12 or later, you must pay your tuition before 5:00 pm the next business day to prevent being dropped from your classes according to the Tuition Payment deadline.
