Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) has several benefits for the students whom attend this school. Firstly, the convenience of the staying at home while pursuing a quality education appeals to several high school students who simply do not have the money to attend a four year college. Secondly, it is very affordable for all students who can only acquire a part time job and go to school. Another plus to enrolling at NOVA is the option to be able to take online classes which is a great thing to have for students who need a very flexible schedule to revolve around. The on-campus resources like the tutoring center helps several students who struggle initially on some subjects and the best thing about it is that there is no fee to be charged for tutoring! Library resources are also a huge assistance to those who need help for research as there are librarians who are available to help you track down articles, books, and other credible sources for assignments.

I truly enjoyed going to Northern Virginia Community College. Especially going into college at a young age! I never knew what I wanted to get into so nova really helped me figure out what subjects and classes were right for me. The professors there are amazing. I love how small the classes, you get a lot of one on one time with your professors. The professor will get to know you and you'll always have time to interact and ask plenty of questions! Not to mention how great how helpful the staff is with helping students find a university after completing 60 credits.
NVCC is the perfect instituition to get an associate's degree or simply complete general education electives at a fraction of the cost at a regular 4-year-university. Class sizes are small and professors are dedicated to their student's success, as opposed to simply publishing their own works. Great school! Great price! Great people!
