    It is incredibly smart to go to NOVA. It costs less and is one of the greatest community colleges in America. Thousands of students study at NOVA -- many with the goal of transferring to a 4-year university in Virginia. There are Guaranteed Admission Agreements in place that you should take advantage of.

    The education level for the amount you pay is significantly better in comparison to the amount you have to pay at a 4 year institute. NOVA professors are highly educated and go above and beyond with what they teach to ensure the students get the most out of it. Many of the professors actually are teachers at 4 year institutes or are professionals in the field that they are teaching about.They truly make education worth the investment
