The NOvA collaboration has constructed a 14,000 ton, fine-grained, low-Z, total absorption tracking calorimeter. This detector, with its excellent granularity and energy resolution and relatively low-energy neutrino thresholds, is designed to observe electron neutrino appearance in a muon neutrino beam: but it also has unique capabilities suitable for more exotic measurements. In fact, with an efficient upward-going muon trigger and sufficient background suppression offline, NOvA will be capable of a competitive indirect dark matter search for low-mass WIMPs. A dedicated upward-going muon trigger has been active since 2014 and we will present the status and plans for a dark matter search based on the collected data set.
