Returning Visiting Students

Returning visiting students may be able to register using their Student Center in the Student Information System (SIS), if they were enrolled in classes during the previous fall, spring, or summer terms. You can find step-by-step registration instructions below. If you are a previous SCPS student but were not enrolled in classes during one of the last three semesters then you will need to complete a visiting student form to reactivate your student account.  

Returning Active Students who can use their Student Center in SIS include: 

  • Returning students registering for classes in the following subjects: ACCT, BUS, SEC, HR, IT, PC, and those course subjects beginning with NC and PS.  

Returning Students who cannot use their Student Center in SIS include: 

  • Returning Community Scholars. Please see the Community Scholars page for more information.  
  • Returning Senior Citizens wishing to use the Senior Waiver, please see the "Senior Citizens" section. 

Senior Citizens

Returning Community Scholars and Senior Citizen Community Scholar students. Please see the Community Scholars page for more information on how to register.  

  • Returning Senior Citizens wishing to use the Senior Waiver to cover the tuition for SCPS certificate and degree classes, please submit a Senior Waiver Registration form. We begin processing Senior Waiver request two weeks before classes begin but have the right to postpone enrollment just prior to the first day of class to give priority to tuition-paying students.  See below for more information on using the Senior Waiver to cover tuition charges. 
  • In compliance with the Senior Citizens Higher Education Act, the University offers classes with tuition and certain fees waived for persons 60 years of age and older, who have been legally domiciled in Virginia for at least one year. Tuition-paying students are given priority. A senior citizen shall only be admitted to a class, tuition-free, after all tuition paying students have been accommodated.
  • The tuition-free privilege cannot be retroactively exercised after payment has been received. Some program-specific fees may apply and cannot be waived.
