Welcome to NOVA!
Thank you for making NOVA — Northern Virginia Community College — your educational choice. You’re in good company: every year more than 60,000 students take courses for college credit at NOVA. We are proud to be considered one of America’s top community colleges, with an outstanding faculty and innovative curriculum.
There are as many reasons to attend NOVA as there are students. Perhaps you’re launching an educational plan that will lead to an associate degree and on to a bachelor’s degree, or maybe you’re just getting your feet wet with a single course. Maybe you’re building your skills for a promotion or change of career, or want to try something new just for fun. Many students who began with just one course have gone on to achieve more than they ever expected. Our graduates transfer to top colleges and universities in Virginia and all across the country, while others can be found in rewarding jobs in virtually every field.
NOVA can help you change your life. By giving you the tools of education and the support of talented and caring faculty and staff, there’s no limit to what you can achieve. NOVA has the resources you need to be successful.
On behalf of our faculty and staff, we are happy to welcome you to NOVA. We look forward to serving you.
