5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great School for commuter students and anyone with a full time job. I am planning to return in a few years after I get my Master's degree.

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!

1 College Sophomore

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.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: EASY ONLINE SYSTEM AND TESTING CENTER ASSISTANCE

3 College Junior

Career Services: FOCUS IS ON TRANSFERRING NOT NETWORKING

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: CAREER SUPPORT FOR CERTIFICATE PROGRAMS MORE THAN DEGREE PROGRAMS

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: SOMETIMES HAVE TO SEARCH BEYOND MAIN CAMPUS COURSE SCHEDULES

3 College Freshman

Online Courses: The online courses are more straight forward. You have your book and your resources depending on the program the teacher uses. Online classes make the student responsible for deadlines.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: All my classes a C or above transferred except for one. There are lots of class times and days, especially for the more popular classes.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Teacher was very friendly and helpful, wanted everyone to do well in the class. But like with a lot of online classes, you must teach a lot of the concepts to yourself, then just do the assignments posted online (No online lectures or videos).

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors, classes and students are great, but you have to be your own advisor. Advisors give conflicting and confusing advice, are difficult to contact, and don't always know what they are talking about. As long as you follow the readily available advising sheets, keep track of your needed credits, and talk to the transfer advisors at the school you're transferring to, you'll be good.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: NOVA is the best school in my vicinity and I would require any immigrant to take classes to advance his education and learn new things

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I am in the process of applying to the Nursing program at my school, and I have finished taking the prerequisite courses that were required prior to applying. Those prerequisite science courses have been informative. I know I will be able to apply those concepts to a healthcare setting in the future.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I was able to take classes in the evening on weekdays which helped me accommodate my part-time job.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have taken mostly science courses such as Human Anatomy and Physiology and General Microbiology. My professors for these courses have been helpful and engaging. They also care that the students will learn from the class and be able to apply the concepts to real life situations. I like that the classes are small (about 30 students or less) because it allows me to ask questions in class.
