NOVA Alexandria Graduation Preparation Program


As one of the programs for Academic Advising Week (November 4-8), the Alexandria Counseling Department is sponsoring a program for continuing students who are planning for their last semester at NOVA.   We will provide future graduates with important information so that they will understand how to:

  • Enroll in the correct classes for their final semester
  • Apply for NOVA graduation before the deadline
  • Purchase their caps/gowns
  • Apply for transfer before deadline(s)
  • Apply for financial aid for their intended transfer college(s)
  • Prepare for employment (resume, interview, etc.)

Balancing the completion of their last semester along with planning for life after NOVA can be a major challenge for some students.  Therefore, we are providing a panel presentation and Q&A for students who are planning to graduate in Spring 2014.   Students who are planning to graduate later but want to learn the information are also welcomed to attend.  Please consider encouraging the attendance of your students (particularly those classes with high enrollment of continuing students nearing degree completion).
