If you are new to the United States, or here on a student visa, NOVA wants you to feel at home. Each of our locations has services, staff and advisors dedicated to helping international students. You’ve come a long way to study here – we’ll make sure you have an easy transition.
We want to ease your transition to your new home. Whether your academic goal is a transfer to a four-year school, a technical career path, or continuing education, we can help. Even if you are still undecided, NOVA is the place to figure it out.
