Do You Still Have a Financial Aid Pending (FAP) on Your Account?

If you still have a Financial Aid Pending (FAP) hold on your account, you probably have not completed the financial aid process or your anticipated financial aid is not enough to cover your balance.  If so:

  • Please review your myNOVA To Do List and submit any items that may have been requested.
  • If you were already awarded, please review your anticipated aid based on your current enrollment and pay any balance that is not covered by financial aid. Instructions for viewing anticipated financial aid are available here.
  • If you are using a Direct Loan to cover your balance, remember to accept the amount you wish to borrow for Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 on myNOVA and complete the Entrance Counseling and Master Promissory Note at The amount accepted will be evenly divided between the fall and spring semesters and a nominal loan fee will be deducted before funds are applied toward your account.  Instructions for accepting a loan are available here.

To prevent classes from potentially dropping for non-payment, students must be awarded enough anticipated financial aid to cover their balance or they must make other payment arrangements before the Financial Aid Pending (FAP) hold on their account expires.

As a reminder, you should attend all classes for which you are registered, whether aid has been awarded or not.  If you do not wish to take a particular class, you should drop it on myNOVA before the census date to avoid being charged for it.

If you have any questions, please contact the 24 Hour Student Support Center at 1-855-323-3199 or visit
