Senior Registration

August 19th, 2014

[Update August 19, 2014]:
Mary to Peggy:

“Hi Peggy,
Thanks for your email and the good information that you have been providing.

With respect to the Senior Tuition waiver form, it takes 48 hours to process and show up in the online payment program. So we will show charges for our senior classes for a day or two. They will be removed and those classes will become not for credit when the form that we filed online is processed. So I was told at Nova that those registering for senior classes will not be booted out tomorrow because the waiver form is not yet entered in the system and there will be a grace period in the rule requiring full payment for those who have filed today.”

[Update August 19, 2014]:

From Peggy: A tip from one of our seniors. Thanks, Carol for passing this on. Another tip from me, they have a little sample that doesn’t look like one just above each blank.

From Carol and Barbara to Peggy:
Good morning, Peggy!!  Thank you for getting and relaying all the info on Senior Registration!

Barbara Lowrey and I have followed Bernie’s advice and did a “New Year’s Eve” Senior registration.

I went first, and it took me over half an hour to get through the process.  I got hung up on the senior tuition waiver form.
The hang up was the “number of credits” field.
The sample above the box showed “3 crs” and so I typed in “1 cr”.
It would only show “1”
When I submitted the form, it said the entry was invalid.
You must enter the credits as a two digit number.
It took me over 15 minutes to figure this out–NO HELP from the screen.
So type in “01” and you are good to go.

We did not need a photo ID upload.

Barbara’s registration took maybe 3 minutes.  Thank God for a learning curve!!!

Than you for the info. However, I still don’t know where to find and submit the senior tuition waiver form. I mentioned this in my email but you did not address this issue in your reply.

I’ve not perused these yet myself but will spend some time with them tomorrow.

From NVCC: Re: Subject: Senior Citizen Registration Instructions
Good afternoon Mrs. Harrison. Thank you for sharing your thoughts regarding Senior Citizen Registration. The information you shared is appreciated and will help as we prepare for fall registration.

Instructions to guide the registration process have been developed, and emailed to all Senior Citizens on the NOVA Alexandria email list. These instructions will guide you through the steps required to complete your fall registration on August 19. It is my hope that you will find these instructions helpful. A copy of the instructions is attached to this email (.pdf).

I look forward to your continued enrollment at NOVA. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance with your registration or other matters.
