Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2015

A pro of the graduate program at NSU is the availability of online courses. Not all students are able to work full time and also go into the classroom. It provides flexibility for us working MBA students. One con about the graduate program is the high expense. There are not many scholarships or grants offered at NSU for graduate students so most of us have to take out more student loans. It will be a great investment into our future but the added expense is a little overwhelming.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2014

The program I think is excellent in concept. I feel that the rules for the program has been changed so many times along the way, and that sometimes there does not appear to be any clear guidelines. Faculty try very hard to make themselves available to the students, but the classes are too big for a graduate program. Perhaps the faculty should be more selective, thus allowing more time to work with the students. Also I am discouraged by the rate of graudates from the program. The program is lengthy and financial aid has its limits and in this economy there have not been alot of options for students once they max out of financial aid.

I love Nova! I attended this school for my undergraduate degree, and am now attending it for optometry school. I love the close-knit feel of having a smaller campus in comparison to a typical public/state university. I love the graduate program because it is very interesting and well-taught. All my professors are very helpful and encourage everyone to form a more personal relationship outside the classroom. The only thing I don't like about the program is that the workload is a little much, but it will all pay off in the end when I achieve my lifelong goal of becoming an optometrist.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2011

I felt like this school was too expensive after having compared it with other schools. Also some of the Professors made we feel as though the school was more focused on money than education. However the career development team is awesome in helping with career services.
3.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many pros that come with attending Nova Law School, including the faculty, the opportunities and the law school itself. The main con with attending Nova is the cost of attendance. Other then the cost Nova is a great school to study law.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Nova provides flexible online courses that work well with those with a busy career or family life that would make traditional classroom settings impossible. The courses are easy to navigate and the professors are extremely helpful and informative. They understand your schedule and work with you, while still providing a challenging and productive learning environment
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

The only problems experienced were with two professors who did not communicate well; for my first class and my last class. It would have been ideal to have a professor from my major area to guide my field-based research project and paper.
