NOVA serves a large population of students who receive disability-related accommodations. Among those students are individuals attending classes on-campus as well as online, students actively involved in campus organizations and leadership positions, community activities and job responsibilities.
NOVA is committed to insuring all students have an opportunity to pursue a college education regardless of the presence or absence of a disability. NOVA will make reasonable accommodations in providing course, program and building modification, and/or auxiliary aids and services in compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) of 2008. No academically qualified student with a disability shall be denied access to or participation in the services, programs and activities of the College.
Learn about what you and your child can expect as he/she transitions from high school to college in the Parent's Welcome Letter.
VPT English and VPT Math are untimed. If you have other needs that require academic accommodations for a placement test at NOVA, please complete the processes described below for requesting accommodations PRIOR to taking your placement test. To ensure timely implementation of accommodations students are expected to request accommodations at least three weeks in advance, particularly during peak registration times. Peak times are during July-August and December-January.
Northern Virginia Community College makes every effort to accommodate individuals with disabilities. If you need an accommodation to attend a NOVA event, submit your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
