The spread of the coronavirus — COVID-19 — is creating unprecedented challenges for students at all levels around the world, including those enrolled in higher education. We know that our students are no exception. As you navigate what these changes mean for your own education, we want you to know that Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) is committed to supporting you through every step of this journey. We will all get through this by working together.
