Visiting (Transient) Students


Northern Virginia Community College welcomes visiting students who are attending other universities to take advantage of our course offerings. You can make the most of your time — enroll in a class at NOVA and transfer the credits to your home college or university.

  • If you want to take classes at NOVA during SUMMER 2018, please note that registration is now open for all sessions, and the semester will begin on May 16, 2018.
  • NOVA will offer a wide range of courses during five, six, eight, and twelve-week sessions with different start dates. The SUMMER 2018 class schedule is posted online here.
  • Also keep track of the tuition payment deadline.  The SUMMER 2018 tuition payment deadline is April 22, 2018 if you register by April 21. If you register on April 22 or after, you must pay your tuition before 5:00 p.m. the next business day to prevent being dropped from your classes according to the Tuition Payment deadline.

For more information on the steps to become a visiting/transient student at NOVA, see the Visiting & Transient Students website. Virtual Advisors are available to assist you in this process, either by email or online Live Chat.
