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!

I am an online student so it is very hard to accurately judge on many of these.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

Excellent accessability and ease of use in the program. Both the administrative support and access to the educators is unmatched. Financial Aid access is simplified and easy to access. I wish I would have chosen NEU for my undergraduate degree.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2016

This Physician Assistant program is highly competitive and rightfully so; A PA that graduates from Northeastern is gauranteed a great job and is usually held in high regards. This program really prepares their PA students for life as a practicing PA.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2016

Northeastern University is a good school. But a lot was not explained to me when applying and once accepted to this school. They offer a blended program where part of your learning is online and the other is in a class room. I prefer being in a classroom with less online learning. Also, when searching for classes and looking at the curriculum, much was not explained unless specifically asked.

Degree: Higher Education
Graduation Year: 2014

The pros include the flexibility built in to an online education. You are able to complete work when it is most convenient to you, within reasonable means. I just wish there were more opportunities for financial aid through the institution.
