What is your overall opinion of this school?

For students who are looking to save money before transferring to a four year university, or who work full time and need flexible scheduling, NOVA is an excellent stepping stone. It performs incredibly well for a low cost community college. The GAA program includes a straight forward transfer path to nearly every Virginia four year school. For every specialization there are numerous courses, teachers, and class times including early morning, late evening, weekends and online. Class sizes are small, and free peer tutoring is available for most subjects. Teacher selection can be hit or miss. Many of the professors teach full time nearby esteemed schools, and have industry experience. Other teachers seem to be completely new to teaching, or are perhaps overwhelmed by something happening in their personal lives. Some others don't seem to care about their NOVA teaching career, and treat their class as a last priority. Using "Rate My Professor" is absolutely essential to finding the gems because of the sheer number of professors available.

It is a great place to start your career and get a feel about the environment of college and getting to grow on responsibilities. Its price is very convenient and their classes also. The earlier you choose them the better because you can get to change them at any moment after. You have many stores around each campus there is no where, where you can get lost. Totally recommend

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really enjoy this school because you, the student, hold the reigns. Every choice you make is up to you and you can decide where to take your college life. You don't feel pressured to be in any certain groups to feel popular because people there are so independent and I love that.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I think NOVA is an amazing community college. I love how there are many campuses and the Woodbridge campus is 10 minutes away from me. I appreciate the evening classes so that I can go right after work. The teachers respond to my emails within a day and when I have questions they have been very helpful in answering them. I would recommend NOVA to anyone who wants to experience college at an affordable price compared to Universities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

1) Flexibility: You can work part time or full time and have access to a class that is offered multiple semesters at varying times of the day. 2) Solid Professors: If you do your research, NOVA offers some high-end professors with amazing experiences and connections if they are within your field of interest. Those professors include an English and poetry professor Nicole Tong and an oceanography and geology professor Doctor Ken Rasmussen. 3) Return on Investment: Classes are cheap and financial aid is available- take advantage of it! If you are a STEM major and plan on transferring, I recommend taking the hard sciences such as biology and chemistry at NOVA. It will save you money and stress and the professors are superb. Tips for transfer students- Beware of credits that do not transfer. If you plan on transferring without an associates degree prepare your course load well. Talk to an advisor who has a connection to your transfer university and start making a relationship with them.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overally, it is a very good college. NVCC has many campuses to choose from and a wide variety of communities to be involved with. My major is nursing so I go to the Springfield Campus. My experience there has been wonderful. My peers are very helpful and we do our best to help each other. The professors usually do not "teach"; however, a few stand out that help to guide us along the way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is lovely with the beauty of nature all around. I like the diversity - the blending of so many students and professors from various cultures and background. The classes are fairly easy as well, and the staff and counselors are always there to assist students in need. Overall, it is a nice college with a lot of opportunities and benefits - financial or otherwise.
