Dear Senior Student:
Thank you for your inquiry about NOVA’s new On-Time Registration process as it pertains to your fall 2014 registration.On-Time Registration is one of six new policy changes that impacts ALL enrolling students effective fall 2014 including senior registrants. Seniors will be allowed to register for classes from 12:00AM – 11:59PM on the day before the session is scheduled to start. For additional clarity if your class session begins on August 20th, you MUST register for class on August 19th by 11:59 on this same day.
Specific instructions on how to register for your specific course (s) will be made available within the next few weeks as we continue to educate and update our constituencies via NOVA’s website and other materials that relate to senior On-Time Registration. As you begin to think about and prepare for registration please do the following:
•Make sure your academic record is correct and current forcredit courses, including specific biographical information such as address, date of birth, and telephone number, etc.;
•Know your MyNOVA username and password. Assistance in either locating or resetting your login credentials may be found at Please click on the link and follow the outlined instructions.
•Resolve any holds on your record that may be applicable. You can check this information in the Student Information System after you’ve logged in at the MyNOVA tab on the college’s homepage.
•If you are taking a course that requires a prerequisite, please make sure the specified prerequisite has been met or waived (whichever is applicable.)
NOTE:  Those seniors who wish to enroll in ESL20/24 will need to come on campus to be registered. Seniors who wish to enroll in a course that has been taken twice are not permitted to register themselves unless that class is listed as one being exempt from the two-enrollment limit. More information may be found at If this policy impacts you please come to the campus the day before the session begins for special registration assistance.
Course repeats require not only the Course Repeat Request form but also the required signatures authorizing permission to repeat a course. The Course Repeat Request form may be found at It is advisable that you bring the completed (and signed) form to campus with you to expedite the process before registering for classes.
