Like any parent, you want see your child thrive in college. At NOVA we have the support system in place to help all students, and all families, be successful. And it doesn’t hurt that our six campuses provide the quality of a major college or university – without the additional costs.

Not Your Typical Community College

Your child will get the complete college experience at NOVA, and you’ll pay less than you would for a four-year school.

NOVA is the second largest community college in the United States. Our 75,000+ students are a diverse population from the commonwealth of Virginia, neighboring states, and 150+ foreign countries. Our six campuses are inclusive and promote a vigorous, but always respectful, exchange of ideas. And our facilities are state-of-the-art, so graduates are prepared to be innovators when they step on 4-year campuses, or enter the job market


An Affordable Education Within Your Reach

Send your child to college without going broke. A four-year degree can be expensive. Two years at NOVA can put your child in a position to take the next step, while you remain within your budget.
