Welcome to NOVA! Every important journey involves careful preparation. NOVA requires you to participate in a Student Orientation program offered at five of NOVA's campuses.
As a first-time-to-college student under the age of 24 you must start by completing your placement testing and then sign up for a NOVA email account before you can register for an Orientation session.
Special Notice for Pathway Students:
Pathway students attend orientation, which is provided by Pathway Staff. Please click here to register for Pathway New Student Orientation.
During Student Orientation you will:
- Receive interpretation of Placement Test scores
- Develop an academic goal
- Meet with a first-year advisor
- Create your class schedule and register for courses
- Learn about payment options and Financial Aid
The earlier you attend a Student Orientation, the more likely you are to get the classes and the class times that you want!
Student Orientations are led by first-year advisors, college teaching faculty and student orientation leaders.
