Online Application Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
Who needs to complete an application?
Any prospective student who has never taken a class at NRCC or has not taken a class in the past 3 years needs to fill out the application.
If you have attended another Virginia Community College but have never attended NRCC, an application is needed.
Can I apply on paper or in person?
Yes. Prospective students may still fill out a paper application that is available in a course schedule or in one of the offices on campus at NRCC, or that can be printed from our web site.
