NOVA’s Ready for Spring 2010

Be prepared for the next semester; check out our new online Spring 2010 Schedule of Classes! You can search for Spring courses and view other college information. Our interactive Schedule of Classes also includes special notes and prerequisites for each course.

Virtual Academic Advising begins on Monday, November 2 and runs through Thursday, November 5. Academic advising helps you to plan a program that will meet your educational objectives. The Virtual Advising Project is designed to extend academic advising by offering evening hours and an alternate way to reach an advisor for students who are unable to come to campus during Advising Week for whatever reason. Virtual Advisors are available by chat or email. Make sure to have your Student ID number available.

Priority Registration for continuing students starts on November 10 and runs through November 13. On November 5, you will be able to determine your assigned priority registration date. Open registration for Spring classes starts on November 16 for all students. Spring 2010 classes begin on January 11.

Explore NOVA's new Wait List Tutorial feature. It will be available for high-demand courses, not all classes. When you attempt to enroll through Self-Service in a class that is full, you will be given the opportunity to be entered on a Wait List. If a spot in the class becomes available, students on the wait list would gain entrance to the class on a first-come-first-served basis. If you are on a wait list for a class, you will not be charged tuition for the class until you become enrolled.
