For Students

The State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV), the Virginia Community College System (VCCS), and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS, NOVA’s accreditation agency) require that NOVA assess general education core competencies.

Your participation in this assessment is an important part of the educational process. Assessment enables the College to answer important questions being asked increasingly by students, parents, employers and legislators about what a college degree is worth. Your participation allows us to evaluate the types of courses and programs here at NOVA that have an impact on student learning.
