High School & Home School Students Interested in NOVA Courses

Dual enrollment allows students to earn college credit while still in high school. If you are a high school junior or senior, or the home school equivalent, and you are at least 16 years of age, you may be able to take NOVA courses under the conditions detailed in the NOVA Catalog. When you take a dual enrollment course, you will have a NOVA transcript that documents the course you take and the grade you receive. For more information see the Dual Enrollment FAQ page.
