NOVA-Annandale to host Specialty Degree Program Information Sessions and Open House

NOVA-Annandale will host the first of four information sessions regarding the specialty degree program for adults from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at the Annandale Campus, 8333 Littler River Turnpike, Annandale, Va., CG Building Room 202.

The specialty degree program is designed for adult students who are returning to school or looking to pursue a degree. The program offers options to help those students meet their academic goals while working at their own pace with evening, weekend, online courses and flexible schedules.

One of the goals of the program is to make obtaining a college degree manageable for those who balance work, life and school. NOVA offers four programs to obtain the specialty degree: Evening Studies, Fridays-Only, Weekend Studies and Weekend Express.

“I think this is an exceptional opportunity for working and/or busy adults to further their education and obtain their degree, and that’s really the crux of this program,” said Christine Holt, dean of academic administration and academic services for the Annandale Campus.

NOVA-Annandale will also host an open house in August where staff will be available to help students with class advising, financial aid and registration.

According to the Office of the Provost, administrators have organized information sessions on the following dates and times, which are subject to change if necessary:

6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13, 2015

6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 19, 2015

5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 16, 2015

5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 5, 2015

There will also be an open house event from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Aug. 21, 2015 in the Ernst Center Gym.
