Academic Advising

Academic Advising can assist you through your educational journey. NOVA academic advisors can help you to get started at NOVA, choose a program of study, review course selection, explore transfer and career opportunities and more. 


Academic advising is available for walk-in service at campus Advising Centers. Current students can make an appointment for advising through NAVIGATE Student from myNOVA.
