NOVA offers a variety of English courses to meet your program requirements and transfer needs. We also offer developmental and support courses to help you be successful.
New Direct Enrollment Courses
Direct Enrollment allows students who graduated from a U.S. high school in the past five (5) years to enroll directly in the recommended English course based on their high school GPA, SAT/ACT scores, or GED scores.
ENF 1, 2, and 3 will be offered for the last time during the Summer 2021 term. Starting Fall 2021, ENF will be replaced with EDE 10 and EDE 11 / ESL 95.
