Dean's Welcome

Welcome to the more than 20,000 students who attend NOVA's Annandale Campus! Helping you to achieve your academic goals is our primary focus. Our comprehensive array of student services and activities reflect the rich diversity of NOVA students and our commitment to student success and excellence. Student Services at NOVA involve the three Cs: collaboration, cooperation and communication. I invite each NOVA student to join the dedicated and talented Student Services staff in a partnership that centers on preparing you for the workforce, further education and training, and reaching your dreams.

We recognize that navigating the college system can sometimes be challenging. Our mission is to ensure that our students never feel lost at NOVA. We provide a number of services designed to supplement your academic experience and help you plan for the future. These services include general academic advising, transfer and career counseling, as well as services for veteran students and students with disabilities. Additionally, we can provide a wide-range of student engagement opportunities through our Student Life department.

The Student Services staff and I are always available. We want to hear from you to know how we can serve you better. Your voice, as a NOVA student, is very important to us. We know that one size does not fit everyone; we want NOVA to be a rewarding educational experience for you.

Technology is constantly evolving and being used for academic instruction in innovative ways to make learning more accessible. Assistance is available if you need extra help and support. One of our goals is to keep you informed of programs, services, new developments and activities. We welcome your ideas on ways to use technology as a tool to better communicate with you. We believe NOVA students are tomorrow's leaders.

By attending NOVA, you are investing in your future and the growth of our community and nation. Today is a great day to stop by any of the Annandale student services offices to continue the life-long learning process of becoming all you can be!
