Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Being an online student, I had limited experience with campus life and the such, however the school has limited scholarships and grants for graduates. application process was simply and the admission staff was very helpful. In course work is tolerable and some of the courses are very challenging. Tuition is roughly 1000$ a credit hour.

Degree: Secondary Education
Graduation Year: 2011

College of Professional Studies provide working professionals to earn degrees during convenient hours. It also provides students the choice of attending school on campus, online, or hybrid. Northeastern is conveniently located on both the orange and the red subway line, which makes commuting very easy.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Northeastern has a great graduate nursing program that is well recognized throughout the Boston area. Faculty are amazing and extremely willing to help. It is expensive, but the quality of education that you receive makes up for it. Highly recommend the graduate nursing programs!

Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2014

Northeastern University College of Professional Studies is a leader in providing a quality education online. I started at NU as a traditional freshman in Boston. Years later, I went back to complete my bachelor's degree online from Virginia and am now earning a masters in project management. The courses are challenging but manageable. The discussion boards give you the opportunity to connect with and learn from fellow students. The instructors are well qualified and encouraging. They care. They want to see you succeed in their class and beyond. As do the academic and financial advisers. You truly feel a part of the university even if you never set foot on campus.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Great online program - very accessible and educated staff. Love the program setup - one (in depth) class at a time to focus students' efforts. Options for dual degrees are great!

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of attending Northeastern University's online graduate program provides me a chance to still be a full time working professional while mastering the non profit field. It provides a lot of flexibility with my work schedule and the learning environment is just what I need since I am individual learner. It has provided me growth in my current job and I know this program will continue to help me grow within my career. The only con I have about the program is that it is different learning and working with virtual teams.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

While I sometimes wish that I was back on Northeastern's beautiful Boston campus, I am grateful that I am able to attend the University at the graduate level online. It allows me to pursue my academic goals while maintaining my private and work-related positions. I do wish that more financial aid was available, particularly merit-based financial assistance. The speed of the program is another welcome strength - I will be able to complete my Master's program in nutrition in under 2 years!
