Student & Graduate Reviews

4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

PROS: Many great professors that work in various areas of practice, flexibility to complete program while also working full time, advising dept. (Pat Z.) is quick to respond, Blackboard and e-Live online technology works really well with minimal issues (as compared to friends in other online programs), great education (but you have to put the work in! Professors will not hold your hand.), an annual list of scholarships is published (I applied for only one but did not get it.) CONS: Expensive tuition (although I haven't seen a Master's Psych program that is not!), not officially CACREP accredited (not at all a problem for Florida licensure because it aligns with requirements), you are on your own for some things like finding your practicum/internship site and understanding EVERYTHING about licensure (there is support and help, but onus is on you to make sure you know and get what you need, whereas traditional in-person programs seem to provide more support). All in all, I recommend! Particularly over other online/private programs like Argosy and Webster.

Nova Southeastern University is very diverse, yet still provides a great sense of community among students and even faculty. The faculty is always available and truly cares about student success.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Aside from the school being on the expensive side and the constant problems with printer/internet malfunctions, I have enjoyed my experience at Nova Southeastern University. The professors are very knowledgeable and most have an open door policy. Therefore, they are always available if you need that extra help. The class sizes are between 50-65 students per class, which is great because your professors typically get to know you personally instead of you being just a number. Housing around campus can be on the expensive side just because of the area the university is located in, but there are reasonable areas in driving distance that make it affordable. Overall, it was a great experience!

I think sometimes it can be stressful when we have to work on group projects when most or all of us are in different time zones and different work schedules.

Flexibility and accessibility comparable for a working person.
4.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

Nova Southeastern University's graduate program is completely focused on making their students successful in their careers. The faculty and staff make themselves available to students at all convenient times for anything they may need. The program makes the transition from the didactic stage to the clinical phase easy for the students. The program has many more pros than cons, but one con is the size of the class 75-80 students which although faculty is available and willing to help the attention each student gets is somewhat limited.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

It is an excellent school, however very expensive and classes seem to be longer than they need to be. I would rather a more accelerated program only because I can be done much faster.
2.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2014

I believe this is a great program. However, there is a low faculty to student ratio. The faculty is very disorganized and constantly make schedule or policy changes last minute. The program is very competitive, and a lot of students experience stress, and depression while being part of this program. The academic workload is very intense, and the faculty is not very helpful because they are always so busy. Nevertheless, this program provides excellent clinical training.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2016

The pros of my graduate program highly out weigh the cons of the selected field; however, the cost of tuition is quite overwhelming due to my financial state. The pros of the graduate program is that it is a competitive profession and I'm allowed to obtain my masters degree online, the professors are remarkably dedicated and caring to helping their students, and I feel competent in the coursework that's provided
3.42 out of 5.0
Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2014

I love the opportunity to obtain my degree online from Nova Southeastern! I think that being able to "work with and attend class with" individuals all over the US allows me to really get a sense for what the real world career field will be like and opens my eyes to more than just what we do in my state. I wish that since I don't access any part of the physical campus that I wasn't charged the out of state tuition or all of the normal fees that the traditional students are charged. In my opinion if I'm providing my own resources (classroom, internet, technology, etc) then I shouldn't be paying lab fees and the cost of such things. Overall I'm very happy with my program and love the opportunities it is affording me and the career it is preparing me for.
