Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

The best part about NVCC is the price. You really don't pay a lot for what you get. You save money while you take the classes that you need to transfer over to whatever college you plan to go to and continue there where you had left off!
Michelle from CENTREVILLE, VA
Pretty much every other review hit this on the head. NOVA is very inexpensive compared to other schools in the area (George Mason...). There is not a drop off in the quality of teaching at all. All of the professors I've encountered in my two years studying at NOVA have all been leaders within their industry or current/former professors at other four-year colleges in the area (American, Catholic, George Mason).
Kyle from Clifton, VA
Did I mention the great tuition? It has to be one of the biggest advantages of being at Northern Virginia Community College! Students take the same classes at NOVA as they would at other, more pricey colleges; these classes also transfer easily from NOVA to almost any college in Virginia. This is especially useful when the student is looking to transfer while following the guaranteed admissions agreement between NOVA and many other colleges.
Tsz from Reston, VA
since this is a junior college, the tuition is low. plus, nova is located in northern virginia so the students are constantly exposed to the cultural sophistication of the area while being taught by worldly professors.
Brian from Bealeton, VA
You will save a lot of money by choosing to take your first two years of college at Northern Virginia Community College. You will also gain a Associate's degree before pursuing your Bachelors Degree, which is also a great help in your academic career.
