About the Single Stop Screener

What is Single Stop?

Single Stop at NOVA connects students to local community and governmental resources (e.g. SNAP, TANF, etc.). Single Stop is an online screening tool that can estimate in minutes what supplemental resources students might be eligible to receive. Single Stop staff is available to assist students in accessing these resources. Complete the Single Stop screener online or visit the Single Stop location on the Annandale Campus (CG 224). If you have any questions or need help getting started, please email us at or call 703.323.3450.
