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 in May.
  • 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 July 30 if you registered by July 29. If you register on July 30 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.
