    About You

  • NEVAA Requirements and Conditions

  • NEVAA requires the completion of a pre-assessment that must be submitted prior to attending the academy. Upon acceptance, attendees will be provided this information and it is the responsibility of the attendee to submit it as outlined. In addition, 3-5 hours of pre-requisites will be required prior to your arrival. The academy itself is 37 hours of classroom instruction.

    For respect of guest faculty and for participants to gain the most out of their Academy experience, participants are required to attend all five days of the Academy in their entirety to be considered a graduate of the Academy. Academy participants will receive a Certificate of Completion after attending all five days of the Academy. Participants are expected to sign in at every session for attendance confirmation.

    You are expected to participate fully and to not engage in the use of phones, computers, etc. during curriculum facilitation.
  • The tuition fee for NEVAA is $450 per person which includes breakfast, lunch, snacks, housing, curriculum materials, and the Academy fee. If you do not require housing, the fee is reduced to $350. The fee must be paid in full no later than June 13, 2014. If payment is not made in full by this date, NEVAA reserves the right to open the spot to another applicant. Payment may be made by check payable to Creighton University. All applications will be reviewed by the NEVAA committee. A maximum of 50 participants will be accepted.
  • NEVAA participants may qualify for an OVC Professional Development Scholarship. To find out more and access application materials, visit: https://www.ovcttac.gov/views/HowWeCanHelp/dspPDscholarship.cfm If you receive a scholarship but it does not cover the full amount of NEVAA’s fee, the participant will be responsible for the remainder. Please note that OVC must receive the completed scholarship application at least 45 calendar days prior to the event or the request will be rejected (no exceptions)!
  • If accepted, you will be required to complete daily evaluations, an overall evaluation at the end of the week, and a follow-up evaluation several months after the academy.
  • The curriculum is approved by both Creighton University and UNK. NEVAA can be taken for three (3) hours of undergraduate credit through the Sociology Department at Creighton University or through the Criminal Justice Department at UNK. Students will be responsible for the 3 hours of tuition (at UNK’s tuition rate) and fees along with filling out the appropriate university enrollment/application forms. NEVAA will also meet various CEUs for many of the disciplines involved., Successful participants may apply for CEUs after the conclusion of the Academy. A certificate of completion will be awarded at graduation. NEVAA staff will verify attendance so that participants can apply for CEU’s through their respective fields.
