It is the policy of Northern Virginia Community College to admit to those applicants who are residing in Virginia and have graduated from a Virginia high school with a high school diploma or equivalent (homeschooling, GED), even if they are not able to document their legal presence. Those who are unable to provide evidence of legal status will not be eligible for in-state tuition.
