More on Senior Registration

August 15th, 2016

From Peggy: For seniors who are registering as a senior for chorus, below is information from the NVCC web site. The instructions are pretty good. Here are my recommendations in addition.

TODAY, check your login information. You will probably have to change your password. Password requirements have changed, new passwords now need a “special character”, like &$ or similar-see the password instructions when you change the password.
Allow some time for the new password to take effect before you try to use it, I’d say at least 20 minutes. Longer is better, which is why you need to try your login NOW.

You can register for either MUS 137 or MUS 237. Just one. Here are the course numbers to enter into the registration system: for MUS 137, the course number is 11602. for MUS 237, the course number is 11610.

You may start your senior registration this Friday, August 19, and must complete it by 11:59 pm on Sunday, August 21. At the very bottom of this message is the official info from NVCC web site. Note how and when you can get assistance, including at student services the first week of classes.

Wait a few days, then you can get your free parking through he NVCC parking web site:

See you August 23!


Senior Registration Info:


Learning is ageless. We encourage you to enroll in NOVA’s credit and non-credit classes. Qualified senior citizens are entitled to register and not pay tuition on a space-available basis for certain types of courses. Before the beginning of the semester in which you want to enroll, you must have 1.) reached the age of 60 and 2.) had legal domicile in Virginia for one year.

A senior citizen is entitled to enroll and not pay tuition on a space-available basis for the following types of courses, as specified:

Credit Courses — eligible if taxable income has not exceeded $23,850 for the preceding year in which enrollment is sought
Credit Courses for Audit (receive no credit) — eligible regardless of income
Non-Credit (CEU) Courses (through Workforce Development) — eligible regardless of income. You must register for these courses by contacting Workforce Development.
For more information browse the College Catalog.

Per college policy for on-time registration, you may register online for any open course the day before the session starts between the hours of 12:00 a.m. – 11:59 p.m.

DISCLAIMER: The Virginia Senior Citizens Higher Education Act of 1974 and amendments allow senior citizens to take classes at no charge under certain circumstances. “Senior Citizens Higher Education Act” is set forth in Chapter 4.5 (§23-38.54 et seq.) of Title 23 of the Code of Virginia.

More Time to Register–—Fall Semester 2016

You talked, we listened! We understand how having a 24-hour window to register was difficult and often impossible for many of you. Now, senior citizens using the tuition waiver will have extra time to register and submit the Tuition Waiver form online. You’ll also have additional help if you run into problems.

Senior Citizen students may register starting August 19, the Friday before classes begin, at 12:00 a.m.
You can register AND submit Tuition Waiver online using MyNOVA.
Student Services will be available to assist you all day Friday and on Saturday from 10-2.
A Senior Citizens’ Hotline is available by calling 703-425-5989 August 19–26. Click here for the hours. At other times your call will go to a voice mailbox and a Virtual Advisor will call you back.
In-person assistance will be available in Student Services through the first week of classes.
For more information go to the Senior Citizens webpage. Students who wish to take Continuing Education Courses (CEU) must contact Workforce Development.

We look forward to seeing you back at NOVA this Fall!

Thank you,
NOVA Student Services
