Student-Athlete Registration Procedures
All student-athletes have a primary academic advisor in their home college with whom they are required to meet with prior to each registration process. Student-athletes can find the name of their academic advisor in the Student tab of myNOVA. All student-athletes must meet with their academic advisor to receive their registration PIN in order to register for classes.
All student-athletes are provided with an early registration time to remain in compliance with NCAA academic eligibility and progress towards degree rules.
After consulting with their academic advisor and checking the availability of open sections, student-athletes can register for the upcoming semester. To register:
- Login to myNOVA
- Select 'Login to Register' from the dashboard
- Choose the appropriate term and enter registration PIN
- Register for courses
The Office of Academic Support for Athletics serves as a secondary advisor to student-athletes during the scheduling process by assisting in scheduling required courses that minimize or eliminate conflict with practice times or athletics-related travel/competition. While OAS assists with scheduling to avoid practice and class conflicts, student-athletes are required to meet with their college/department academic advisor to discuss classes and academic plans.
The NCAA specifies that an enrolled student-athlete may receive athletically related financial assistance to attend an institution's summer school only in the same proportion to the amount of athletically related aid received during the prior academic year. If the student-athlete did not receive athletically related aid during the prior academic year, he/she will not be provided athletically related aid during the ensuing summer term. Student-athletes who are eligible for summer school financial support must complete an authorization form which will be available in the Office of Academic Support in February. Funding for summer school is not guaranteed and proper procedure must be followed to be considered for funding. This completed form must be signed by the student-athlete's coach and approved by the Summer Funding committee.
