The first step to becoming a student at New River Community College is to complete an application. We have an online application process that we encourage all prospective students to use.

Begin Application

If you are unsure whether you need to fill out an application or have other general questions, read below:

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 one of the offices on campus at NRCC, or that can be printed from our website.


Below are resources to help with planning and options for paying tuition and related expenses.

Transcript Request Form (252KB)

There are four different ways to request an official NRCC transcript:

  1. Write to the following address:

    • Admissions and Records Office
      New River Community College
      5251 College Drive
      Dublin, VA 24084
  2. Fax a request to (540) 674-3644.
  3. In person at the Admissions & Records Office in Rooker 259.
  4. Request Online through the Student Information System.

To request a transcript, please include your name, social security number, where transcript should be sent and your signature. Since your signature is required, we cannot accept email requests for transcripts.
Transcripts are provided free of charge unless you request more than five at one time. In that case, there is a $1.00 per additional copy charge.

Please understand that a transcript sent directly to you will be considered unofficial by most other colleges. Generally, for a transcript to be considered official for admission and transfer of credits, it must be sent directly from one college to another. Unofficial transcripts may be viewed online through the Student Information System.
