GPS for Success

GPS for Success is designed to provide a comprehensive advising experience to students who are recent high school graduates, have never been to college before and are enrolled in an academic program.

The goal is to retain students by establishing relationships, fostering connections with professional advisors and faculty, and teaching students how to plan and evaluate their academic performance. GPS for Success is the result of NOVA's College-wide Quality Enhancement Plan.
