Counseling Services

Providing Academic and Personal Support to NOVA Students

NOVA strives to be a learning-centered organization that promotes student success.

Counseling services are available to support students by comprehensively addressing issues that may interfere with academic and personal responsibilities. Students can receive holistic support for complicated academic guidance, as well as situations that may be particularly stressful and affect multiple aspects of their life.

Students on academic probation can receive the necessary guidance and approval for registration through interaction with their Academic Success Counselor.

Counseling services staff have advanced skills to provide direct assistance to students inside and outside the classroom. They can connect students to resources beyond our services to get the needed support.
