institutional Policies

It is the policy of Northern Virginia Community College to admit to those applicants who are residing in Virginia and have graduated from a Virginia high school with a high school diploma or equivalent, even if they are not able to document their legal presence. Those who are unable to provide evidence of legal status will not be eligible for in-state tuition.

DACA students may qualify for in-state tuition. They have to bring documentation of their status to the campus Student Services Center before the first day of class. Students must be in DACA status for one year before they are eligible.

Students who have been legally domiciled in Virginia for at least one year prior to the first day of classes for a term are eligible to pay tuition at the in-state rate. Domicile means the present, fixed home of an individual who returns following temporary absences and at which he/she intends to stay indefinitely. Domicile is NOT the same thing as residence. A person may have residences in more than one state, but may have only one domicile.

The following are eligible to establish domicile:
* All US citizens
* Permanent Residents (green card holders)
* Asylees
* Refugees
* Individuals under Temporary Protective Status
* Holders of certain nonimmigrant visas
* Individuals under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
