Student & Graduate Reviews

3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Nova has a lot to offer. It's a good school and I enjoy my time there, despite the massive debt I'm acculturating for law school. I truly hope my education is worth the money I'm paying for it.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Definitely the biggest downfall is the cost of attendance. Nova is amazing school but it is very expensive. Even the cost of living in South Florida is expensive. However, the pros of the school are plentiful. Beautiful campus, wonderful staff, helpful professors, one on one communication, etc.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2014

Nova provides a very rigorous course schedule, but the end result is highly qualified professionals who are well-equipped and the experts in their field of study.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Nova Southeastern University is located in a great location, though the cost of living is extremely high. As someone in the doctoral clinical psychology program, I believe our faculty and opportunities are rated among the best and I feel as though I made the correct choice in choosing to pursue a graduate education at Nova.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Pros: The staff is excellent. They are quick to help make sure you have everything completed and send reminders about important due-dates, scholarships, and clerkship opportunities. The campus is beautiful and has many quiet areas for studying. The OPP lab remains open for people to practice on weekends and at night. The school has a lot of affiliates, allowing for a variety of choices for clerkships. Cons: Due to the large class size, it's very easy for a few students to fall through the cracks. The faculty does work with you so that you know how you are progressing. However, there is the option to opt out of the faculty help and that is where people get lost. Also, the large amount of students in the program leads to clerical errors and paperwork getting misplaced. It's manageable for the most part if you are diligent enough to keep copies of everything you submit. However, it becomes a pain when other are submitting on your behalf or when the school is collecting rec letters for your residency applications.

Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2012

My graduate experience at Nova Southeastern University was great. I was very nervous when I started, but the teachers and students make the transition to being a student again very easy. The professors within the Educational Leadership Program were current school Principals or Assistant Principals so the information given within the classroom setting was informative and real. The course work was detail and was not just empty course work to keep the students busy. Nova offered classes that worked around my busy schedule. I could take classes on the weekend, during the week or online without interrupting my graduation date. Furthermore, Nova’s technical support on campus and online assist with fixing problems every quickly. My overall experience was a blessing.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Occupational Therapy
Graduation Year: 2015

I love this program. It offers me the flexibility to work part time ( I would not recommend full time work) along with the flexibility of a combination of online and classroom based learning. It is a cutting edge program which will prepare me to enter a booming market for occupational therapy. The faculty and staff are fabulous and very supportive. I am very happy with the choice I made to attend Nova Southeastern University.

The benefit of the program is that it allows students the flexability to obtain their degree by offering weekend classes. The con to the program is that is is expensive.
