International Student Resources

Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) has an office serving the needs of international students on all six campuses, as well as a central Office of International Student Services (OISS).

International Student Resources

Either OISS or your campus office can assist you with immigration advice related to your F-1 status, updating or extending your I-20 or transferring to another school in the U.S.

OISS is responsible for recruitment, admissions, issuing I-20s, coordination of international student services and maintaining SEVIS data.

Campus offices are responsible for personal and academic advising.
