Northern Virginia Community College, as a member of the Southern Regional Education Board’s Electronic Campus, has reciprocal agreements with other SREB member states that allow students living in those states to take NOVA online courses through ELI. In addition, NOVA meets the requirements of many other states, so that students living in those states may also take NOVA online courses through ELI.
A growing number of courses at NOVA are utilizing freely accessible, high-quality, openly licensed educational materials commonly referred to as Open Educational Resources (OER), and are designated as "digital open courses."
