4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Many students are employed locally. Some stay as teachers or tutors at the school.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall northern va college is a great school for starters who want to save money and then transfer two a 4 year college

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: lost of science, alot to remember but the professors are great

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience at the school was stressful, but that's like any other student at their school

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Since this is just a community college all I can obtain from here is a 2-year degree although I do wish it was a 4-year college because I do really enjoy it. After I graduate from here I will have to transfer to another school to obtain my bachelors and be able to really pursue a career in my field of choice.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The courses are great. I feel like the professors really enjoy and know what they are talking about. They also make you feel like they care about each of the students individually.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: There is a wide variety of classes available as far as scheduling goes. I have yet to see any weekend classes but there are several evening classes so that I can attend after work. I have only transferred once, from my previous school to here and they transferred most of my general education credits and one of my electives. I am only having to retake one of my core classes.

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: The Paralegal Studies Program has very few online courses available due to the nature of its content but the 2 that I have taken so far have been very manageable and the content was very understandable. There was not much of a professor/student or peer-to peer relationship since they were both mainly just reading out of the book and completing assignments related to the material.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am in the Paralegal Studies Program and all of the professors I have had I can tell really care about the material they are teaching, the students, and myself as an individual. I have learned a lot of new things in this program and I can't wait to put them to use once I have earned my certificate and get a job as a paralegal.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You can tell the teachers really care about you as a student. I feel like you get a quality learning experience out of it even though it is just a community college. There's such a wide variety of classes so you can study practically anything, anytime.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Having a major in science is difficult and challenging. It is not as good as I thought it would be and I'm considering changing my major.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Lots of evening classes- part of the reason I go there in the first place. I also have two full time jobs- and the college enables me to go to school while I do!

Online Courses: Only bad thing about the college is the online courses. The Hybrid classes are just as bad in my experience.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: Career center is very good in regards to job connections and helping place students in jobs. There are lots of job fairs on all different campuses.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've only had two bad professors in my entire time at the college- but this seems fairly typically at the community college level. All of the others have been fantastic. The courses are very informative and MOST of the professors care about your success.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Associates degrees are accepted at all major schools in Virginia and smiled upon by employers in the area.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: My specific major at my school is very common. many students have not declared a major so most opt for General Studies. The workload; however, for the classes that I have chosen to take requires good time management as well as a genuine desire to want to learn. Without those two things academically I would be unsuccessful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite part about NVCC is taking classes from the convenience of my work environment or home. I would and have chosen to further my education at NVCC because of the fact that the professors are understanding and they have a genuine care in your education and want you to succeed and be great.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The flexibility of NVCC is great because the online classes that I take fit my schedule perfectly. I can start my assignments at work and finish them at night once I arrive home and to me this is very beneficial.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Several of the professors are very understanding of your situation and understand that "life happens." They work with you to complete your assignments in a reasonable time. Some offer extra credit as well for those that may need those extra points to boost up their grades. But all of this still depends on the student as well and how involved they are in their education.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Although, I am taking online classes I still get email about career fairs, and resume workshops that are coming up on the different the campuses. As long as students stay connected to their school email and actually check the emails you will be very well informed on what's happening at your school.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: My current major can be applied to almost anything based on the classes that I take. My goal is to do well in every class and retain as much knowledge as I can to be successful.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I attend the Extended Learning Institute at NVCC now and the counselors and instructors are very understanding of your situation when taking online classes and will do their very best to work with you to ensure that you pass your classes.
