Syllabus Information

Faculty, please copy and paste the following information about our services and philosophy into your syllabi or Canvas module:

Academic support is available to all enrolled NOVA students with the Academic Success Center (ASC). ASC offers one-on-one Zoom and in-person tutoring appointments, MTH math help, writing assistance, and a variety of workshops to guide NOVA students toward more efficient and effective academic study skills and strategies. Students can schedule their own Zoom appointment with a tutor by visiting NOVA’s Online Tutoring web page:

Professional staff also are available to provide free and confidential academic coaching in areas such as time/project management, academic reading, exam preparation, note-taking skills, and other learning strategies.

ASC’s writing assistance provides qualified consultants and tutors who work with you to develop effective reading, writing, and critical thinking strategies. We can help you plan your writing project, structure your essay, prepare an outline, revise your writing, learn how to proofread and edit (they cannot do this for you), clarify your paper ideas, format papers and citations properly, and/or discuss literature and poetry. Even if you’re a confident writer, they can offer you helpful feedback. (Please note that they will not help with midterm essays or final exam essays.)
