Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) partners with several community-based organizations (CBO) to offer its credit courses at the CBO sites. The mission of the NOVA/CBO Initiative is to provide education and training to individuals at non-profit organizations that will create gateways of opportunity to higher education, better jobs and increased earnings to Northern Virginians who are pursuing the American dream. Students receive college credit and job training in the administrative technologies, business management, finance, entrepreneurship, and information technologies fields. NOVA provides students with advising, financial aid workshops, and assistance with application and registration.
