NEW – Student Success Initiatives

Student Success

NOVA developed six policy changes that will take effect the Fall 2014 semester. The initial five policy changes will affect new first-time-to-college students. The sixth policy impacts all NOVA students.

Student Success Initiatives is a new Web page created detailing the six new policy changes. There are no special features on the page because the content detailing the policy changes is meant to be the focus.

More information to come about the sub websites that go with the Start Strong initiative. We encourage our students to read about and note these important upcoming changes!

NEW – Discover NOVA!

Discover NOVA

Explore our new website for perspective students called Discover NOVA. The layout consists of full-screen images, large main tabs, bold graphics and video clips. The visual elements are used in harmony to guide users through the site with ease in a horizontal direction. The five landing pages for each of the tabs pose a question we anticipate perspective students would want to know with relevant links to the answers. The carousel at the bottom is packed with fun elements like: a video of a current NOVA student giving an overview of the College from her viewpoint, a virtual tour, a link to our apps, a link to our new online catalog, directions on how to apply, payment options, student profiles and much more! We hope perspective students will find the site easy to use and informative.
