If you have taken college level classes from another accredited institution of higher education, you will need to request a transcript from the respective college to see if your courses are eligible for credit at NVCC. Transcripts may also be used to waive placement testing and prerequisite requirements.

Apply for Financial Aid

Apply for Financial Aid

Concerned about paying for college? All degree-seeking students are encouraged to apply for financial aid. While not everyone will qualify for assistance, a student should never assume he or she is ineligible without applying first. Apply for financial aid each academic year that you wish to be considered.

The FAFSA is now available as early as October 1 for the following academic year--NVCC's federal school code is 006982

One of the most important tips for getting started is to apply for financial aid early.

IMPORTANT: All personal and contact information entered into the college application and FAFSA application must be exactly the same. If abbreviations are used they must be entered identically in both applications (examples: address abbreviations like St. or Ave., full name including Jr).

Take Your Placement Test

Take Your Placement Test

Taking the Accuplacer® Assessment Test will help determine which classes are right for you. This step is required unless placement testing has been waived.

Visit our testing page to learn how to sign up for a testing appointment, or to obtain study guides and other resources that can help you prepare for the test.

Meet with an Advisor and Build Your Schedule

Meet with an Advisor and Build Your Schedule

Once you’ve completed or have been waived from placement testing, you may meet with an advisor and build your schedule. Transfer students are not required to be advised prior to registering, however we recommend all students meet with an advisor to ensure the class(es) you choosel meet your future goals. 


At your advising appointment, you can expect to build your class schedule, register for classes, and make a payment or apply an approved financial aid award.  If you would like an appointment, advisors are available at both campuses:

Waterbury Campus Advising:  Schedule your advising S.T.A.R.T. session.

Danbury Campus Advising:  Advising sessions are available on a walk-in basis Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. No appointment is necessary. 

Please remember, in order to register for classes, you must be accepted to the College.
