Financial Wellness

Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) is committed to our students beyond academics and this includes financial wellness. We want to provide resources, skills, and knowledge to help students become and stay financially well both during your time as a student and after you graduate. Through the Financial Stability and Advocacy Centers, students can gain access to financial information, gain skills, and to a professional that can offer individualized assistance based on your particular situation.

What is Financial Wellness?

Financial wellness is a process of successfully managing your finances. This is an ongoing process of increasing your awareness of your financial state, strengthening your financial knowledge, and making well-informed, intentional, and mindful decisions concerning your finances


Attend one of our many financial workshops throughout the semester covering topics like credit, debt, and handing money during the pandemic. For information about upcoming workshops, contact financialstabilty@nvcc.edu or dyacob@nvcc.edu.
