Earn a bachelor’s degree without leaving Reston

Partnership between NOVA and Marymount offers convenience and flexibility

Reston residents or employees can earn a bachelor’s degree in business administration close to home or work.

Through a transfer agreement between Northern Virginia Community College and Marymount University, students can complete the first two years of college at NOVA and then finish at Marymount without leaving Reston. NOVA and Marymount are conveniently located next to each other on Wiehle Avenue adjacent to Metro’s Silver Line in Reston.

Designed for transfer students, Marymount’s Bachelor of Business Administration appeals to mature students who need to fit college around work or other responsibilities. The program covers marketing, accounting, management and other knowledge needed to navigate the business world.

Sixteen NOVA alumni are currently enrolled in the Marymount program, according to Larry Hoffman, executive director of Marymount University Reston Center.

“The students are engaged and determined, and our faculty members consistently comment on their readiness and their constructive contributions to class,” Hoffman said.

Students start at NOVA by following a recommended transfer pathway that leads to an associate degree and then transfer to Marymount to complete the bachelor’s degree.

Both programs feature small class sizes with personalized attention from faculty and flexible course schedules.

NOVA’s affordable, in-state tuition helps students save money and generous transfer scholarships are available for eligible students to complete the bachelor’s degree.
