NOVA's JumpStart2NOVA Information Seminar to be Held March 30

NOVA is pleased to announce that "JumpStart2NOVA" is back for the summer 2022term! NOVA's award-winning JumpStart program returns this summer with a new focus, to help graduating high school seniors get started on their NOVA journey. A virtual information seminar will be held on Wednesday, March 30 for incoming students and their parents. The seminar will offer step by step guidance on how to register for JumpStart2NOVA and will also offer a question-and-answer session.

This year’s programming will be offered for qualified seniors graduating in spring 2022 who are considering coming to NOVA after high school. Participants may take one 3-credit course and our 1-credit College Success Skills course, SDV 100, virtually through NOVAOnline with the cost of tuition waived. Courses are open to public, private and home school graduating seniors residing in NOVA's service region.

The application is now open and will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, April 29.  First-time NOVA students will need to apply to NOVA and create an account at "nvcc.dualenroll.com" to request their "JumpStart2NOVA" course.  Current dual enrollment students can skip the NOVA application and go straight to "nvcc.dualenroll.com," selecting term “JumpStart2NOVA 2022.” All students will be required to upload a high school/homeschool transcript and any qualifying test scores if they do not have at least a 3.0 grade point average.
