Is today the first day of your NOVA Online course? A few 10 week classes start today!

All courses beginning today are 10-week courses. These courses will run at an accelerated pace to cover the full 16-week semester’s material.

It is very important to monitor your VCCS student email for updates and announcements from NOVA Online, NOVA and your instructor. Look for emails from NOVA OnlineSuccess@nvcc.edu throughout your course.
