NOVA offers two types of transfer agreements with many institutions to help you plan for a smooth transfer to another institution -- Guaranteed Admission Agreements and Articulation Agreements.
Note: Some four-year colleges will accept certain Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) and Associate of Applied Arts (A.A.A.) programs, but each institution has a different policy.
Guaranteed Admissions Agreements
Guaranteed Admission Agreements (GAA) secure your entrance into more than 40 area colleges and universities when you meet the agreement requirements.
Articulation Agreements are partnerships between institutions that can help ensure the classes you take at NOVA will transfer to a college or university.
