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 SPRING 2019, please note that regular registration will open November 12, 2018, and the semester will begin on January 12, 2019.
  • NOVA will offer a wide range of courses during 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16-week sessions with start dates in January, February, and March. The spring class schedule is available online on this page.
  • The tuition payment deadline for spring 2019 is December 12, 2018 if you register by December 11. If you register on December 12 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.
