New Testing Hours

Hello NOVA Students,

Our hours of operation have changed recently, we now close at 8pm Monday – Thursday and at 3:30pm on Saturdays. Friday closing is still 4:00pm.

Did you know that if you take classes at any VCCS college that you can take exams across the state of Virginia? For example, if you take an online course through J. Sargent Reynolds Community College in Richmond, VA, you are eligible to take exams at Northern Virginia Community College. If you are interested in having exams proctored at NOVA, please submit a written request to stating your name, the college where your course is, the course title (e.g. BIO 141), and which exams you need proctored. We require 5 business days notice for exams of this type.

Welcome to my Blog!

My name is Patrick Sheffield, and I run the social media accounts for the Testing Center at Northern Virginia Community College’s Alexandria Campus. When I am not helping students take their placement exams or ELI (Extended Learning Institute) tests, I am in charge of our WordPress blog and our Twitter site. We post testing tips and event notices throughout each semester, and we tweet out reminders for our hours – both normal hours and changes due to meetings or college closures.
