Honors Classes
NOVA is proud to offer a variety of honors classes to highly motivated students who seek a challenging academic experience. Through a variety of teaching methods, you learn to think broadly and independently about the material covered.

Honors courses receive a special designation on student transcripts. If you successfully complete at least 18 hours in selected honors core courses, you will be awarded the honors seal upon graduation.

You must have special permission to enroll in honors courses. To obtain permission, contact the chair of your campus honors committee (see below). You should meet at least one of the following criteria to be admitted:

  • a minimum of 92 on the reading and 94 on the writing sections of the computerized English placement test;
  • a GPA of 3.50 or above at NOVA;
  • SAT scores of 1100 or above on the old SAT or a combined score of at least 1100 verbal + math on the new SAT;
  • graduation in the top 10% of your high school graduating class; or
  • special interest, aptitude, or life experiences that suggest the ability to learn creatively and independently within a course.

In addition to honors classes, NOVA offers honors programs on its campuses. For details on taking honors classes or to participate in the honors program, contact:
