Pre-requisites Satisfied at another College:
If you are attempting to enroll in a course at NOVA for which you believe you have successfully completed (a grade of “C-“or higher) the required pre-requisite(s) at another regionally accredited institution, you will need to submit a copy of your unofficial transcript to an ELI counselor for review. Using your NOVA email, please send an email to the counselors at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the following information with your unofficial transcript:
- NOVA seven digit student identification number (EMPLID)
- The specific course that you are registering for (Example: ENG 111 E55N, #45689)
- Your telephone number
Requests are reviewed and processed in the order in which they are received. You should expect to receive a response about your request within three business days after we re-open.
Promote Your Success: Online Academic Resources: If you have any downtime during the break, it would be an excellent opportunity to explore the free online workshops offered by Student Lingo. Student Lingo workshops focus on time management, career development, mastering the job interview, resume writing, stress management techniques, writing techniques, study skills, test anxiety and more! They are an excellent resource that will enrich your academic and career growth.
We wish you a safe and restful holiday break!
