NOvA, which is under commissioning, is an accelerator neutrino oscillation experiment which has a great potential to determine the neutrino mass hierarchy, and to probe the CP-violation phase in lepton sector with 1) 700 kW beam, 2) 14 mrad off the beam axis, 3) 810 km baseline. The Near Detector On the Surface (NDOS) has been running from 2010, and taking both NuMI and Booster beam data. The 2.5 kt of far detector has been filled with scintillator. This talk will give an overview of the current status of the NO$\nu$A experiment.
