Registrar Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

When do classes begin?

Check the academic calendar for semester updates.

When can I register?

First-time students must meet with a counselor before registering for courses. If you have taken courses at NVCC before, you are encouraged to meet with the advisor assigned to your major for guidance, but it is not required. A number of our classes are offered online. Learn more before you sign up or if you're ready, register now through myCommNet which allows students to register from any computer, anywhere, at any time. You can also read through instructions on how to register online.

Not comfortable using a computer or need assistance? stop by Room K522 in Kinney Hall and someone will help you get started. If you have questions or concerns contact us at the email or number listed here.
