Advising Services

Academic advisors help students become effective agents for their own lifelong learning and personal development. Advisors are vital to student success. They possess a wealth of knowledge about NOVA’s programs and degrees, are experts at guiding students in making choices about career and major, and act as the personal connection to the institution.

Students who are on academic probation or need more substantial personal support beyond academic advising should explore our counseling services.
