Student & Graduate Reviews

3.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

I enjoyed the atmosphere and the student experience. The course work was rigorous but prepared me for the work place. It was definitely a true HBCU experience.
4.8 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2009

Norfolk State University is a family oriented university that makes sure that each student receives the best education and assistance needed. I thoroughly enjoyed attending class, working with professors and interacting with students of different cultures. Each course not only prepared me for working in the field of Criminal Justice, but it also prepared me for the ever changing society we live in today. I would refer my university to others without a doubt and encourage them to attend an awesome holistic university.

Norfolk State University is truly an extraordinary school. In my undergrad profession I was given the majority of the abilities and information that I expected to set me up for my vocation. I am really pressing together my Masters degree in Urban Education at Norfolk State now and i cherish it!

Attending Norfolk state University has been great!!. This university is ideal for mothers that wish to have their children on campus with them. I'm currently a single mother of 2 young sons and having them with me at school for a low price is awesome.

Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2018

I am currently pursuing my Masters Degree in Professional School Counseling from Norfolk State University. The professors make sure to take the time you need to assist you with your understanding of the curriculum. I also received my Bachelors Degree in Social Work from Norfolk State University as well. I can honestly say that the impact this school has had on my career path has been nothing short of beneficial.
3.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2012

I enjoyed the experience of attending an HBCU but did not find the academics at this school overly stimulating. As a nontraditional student, I really enjoyed that many of the other students were also nontraditional.
4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

I enjoyed the closeness of my graduate class. We teamed up to study and to make sure we understood the content covered. The school could do better in helping to create better writers but otherwise, I enjoyed my time there.
3.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2018

Great program. Very nurturing and the faculty are extremely strong in their areas of expertise.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: School Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

NSU has a great faulty that are concerned with the students best interests. The faulty is always readily available to help and genuinely want their student's to greatly succeed and become knowledgeable in every aspect of their career plans. The school provides a challenging but achievable curriculum for students wishing to work in schools as counselors. NSU also has multiple options for grad programs in the education field and other fields as well. NSU staff is always looking to help students but seems to falls short in providing scholarships and aid to grad students who really need the assistance due to the high demand of undergrads and their need for scholarship opportunities.

Overall my experience at Norfolk State University was great. I feared that having my majority of my classes online would be a problem but NSU faculty were very accommodating.
