One benefit of pursuing your degree through ADVANCE is being able to take the right class the first time. To ensure this, select curricular pathways allow ADVANCE students to take up to 9 credits at Mason to count towards both their NOVA and Mason degrees.
– Must be in good standing in ADVANCE (meeting ADVANCE program milestones)
– Have completed at least 15 native NOVA credits
– Have met with a Success Coach to ensure co-enrollment is in your curricular pathway and that you meet the eligibility requirements of ADVANCE co-enrollment
Meet with your Success Coach: Your first step towards co-enrollment at Mason as an ADVANCE student is to meet with your assigned Success Coach to ensure co-enrollment is in your curricular pathway and that you meet the eligibility requirements of ADVANCE co-enrollment
Complete Your Co-Enrollment Confirmation Form: If your assigned Success Coach approves your co-enrollment, the Coach will submit an initial e-form on your behalf to both institutions. Once this e-form is submitted indicating your approval, a follow-up form will be sent to your VCCS e-mail account. You will complete and submit this form indicating the course(s) you intend to take at Mason, which semester, and whether or not you will be using financial aid.
Register and Pay for Classes: Once your form is approved and your registration ticket opens, you will be able to register for classes through Patriot Web. If you need assistance, please contact your assigned Success Coach.
If Using Financial Aid to Cover Co-Enrollment Course: You will need to connect with NOVA’s Office of Financial Aid to ensure that aid is in place to cover your co-enrollment course at Mason. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions regarding the use of your NOVA financial aid award towards your Mason coursework, please contact NOVA Financial Aid.
If Not Using Financial Aid to Cover Co-Enrollment Course: You will need to contact Mason’s Cashier’s Office as soon as possible to pay for your co-enrollment course at Mason. Please see here for more information regarding payment instructions and options. Payment is due the first day of the semester.
