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 FALL 2018, please note that registration is still open for some sessions although the semester started on August 22.
  • NOVA is offering a wide range of courses during 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16-week sessions with different start dates. The FALL 2018 class schedule is posted online here.
  • Keep track of the tuition payment deadline.  The FALL 2018 tuition payment deadline is August 7, 2018 if you registered by August 6. If you register on August 7 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.
