Re-admit Steps for Degree/Certificate Returning Students

Welcome Back to NVCC! 

Who is a returning student?
A returning student is someone who has attended NVCC in the past, but has not registered for class(es) for at least the past 4 semesters (Fall/Spring terms).   

As a degree/certificate seeking student, you will:

  • Choose a degree or certificate program
  • Be a part or full-time student
  • Be eligible to apply for financial aid

Follow these 5 Easy Steps to Re-Admit

Complete your Re-admit Application

You will be notified as soon as your application has been processed and you are ready to meet with an advisor. 

Apply for Financial Aid

Apply for Financial Aid

Concerned about paying for college? All degree-seeking students are encouraged to apply for financial aid. While not everyone will qualify for assistance, a student should never assume he or she is ineligible without applying first. Apply for financial aid each academic year that you wish to be considered.

The FAFSA is now available as early as October 1 for the following academic year--NVCC's federal school code is 006982

One of the most important tips for getting started is to apply for financial aid early.
