Northern Virginia Community College has been working hard to create a pathway for ITT Technical College students who were displaced when their college suddenly closed earlier this month. NOVA offers staggered course start dates, which may help ITT Tech students get back on track quickly. The next eight-week session begins Oct. 19, 2016 and the spring semester begins Jan. 9, 2017.
The Pathway to the Baccalaureate program of Northern Virginia Community College was a recipient of the 2016 Examples of Excelencia Award at the Associate Level.
