Previous College Transcripts

If you have taken college level classes from another accredited institution of higher education, you will need to request a transcript from the respective college to see if your courses are eligible for credit at NVCC. Transcripts may also be used to waive placement testing and prerequisite requirements.

Learn how to request your transcript.

Test Scores (Optional)

If you have taken SAT’s, ACT’s and/or the GED, submit test scores to determine if you need to take the placement exam and for placement into math and English classes.

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.

IMPORTANT: All personal and contact information entered into the college application and FAFSA application must be exactly the same. If abbreviations are used they must be entered identically in both applications (examples: address abbreviations like St. or Ave., full name including Jr).


Virtual Advising & Registration

Once you have been accepted to NVCC, you will receive an email from Noel Rosamilio, Associate Dean of Enrollment, with instructions on how to register for your virtual advising and registration session. 

At this personal advising session you will work with your advisor to build your class schedule and register for classes.


Pay Your Tuition

Your final step is to make a payment.

Payment options include cash, check and credit card (VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express). An Installment Payment Plan is also available.

If you've received a financial aid award, you may not have to make a payment; please discuss payment responsibilities with financial aid staff.
