Student Success Programs

Every student defines success differently. At NOVA, our goal is to ensure Every Student Succeeds, regardless of their definition of success. Using a holistic process of combining academic and student services along with dedicated faculty and staff, NOVA’s Office of Student Success aims to promote and connect these services and resources to students and faculty/staff to support students as they persist through their college experience.


Everyone within the greater NOVA Community has a role to play in the success of all NOVA students.
