    What is the difference between an Official and Unofficial transcript?

    Official transcripts are prepared by a college bearing their official seal and provided in a sealed envelope.  If the envelope is opened by anyone other than an official at the receiving college, it is no longer considered official.

    Unofficial transcripts is a record of college classes taken including grades received.  The document can be produced by the college or student, but does not have a raised college seal.  It may also be a transcript that bears the official seal, but is not in the original sealed envelope. These transcripts can be emailed or faxed to NVCC.

    How do I know what kind of transcript is needed?

Transcripts may be sent from the college directly to the Admissions Office.

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 Admissions 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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
