Make your foreign education count at NOVA

November 30, 2009

Northern Virginia Community College is holding free information sessions to explain how international degrees can be recognized in the United States. Anyone with a university degree or professional credential from outside the United States should plan to attend one of the two sessions.

Staff from NOVA and World Education Services will discuss how international degrees can be evaluated to allow degree holders to apply to college or find a job in the United States. The college admission process and financial aid opportunities will also be covered.

The first session will be at NOVA’s Annandale Campus on Dec. 10 at 8:45 a.m., with another session at the Manassas Campus on Dec. 10 at 6:30 p.m.

The seminars are sponsored by NOVA’s Academy for Culture and Language and World Education Services, a not-for-profit organization with more than 30 years of experience evaluating international credentials.

To register for either session, call 703-257-6536 or email acl@nvcc.edu.
