The Program at Nova is great for the working adult. It allows for accessibility and diversity while working. I have enjoyed meeting new people in my area and beyond.

NSU provides flexible scheduling for working professionals offering courses in the evenings, weekends, or online. You are not locked into one format which helps with my ever-changing schedule.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

Absolutely phenomenal. Small class sizes, individual attention and experts in their field.
2.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

The lack of mentoring was an issue, as well as the relevance of some courses to MY needs.

The application process at Nova was quick and easy. The faculty and financial aid department were very helpful. I'm very happy with my choice to attend NSU.

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2014

I feel on the average that the professors seem to care about teaching and whether the students learn, but some seem to just grade your work and don't give you any helpful feedback. The most frustrating professors are those who just don't communicate much with you at all. I might make an A in the class, but I don't feel I've learned anything useful.

There are various aspects of the optometry program at Nova that are outstanding, especially compared to similar programs at other schools. We take more classes on a variety of types of optometry (low vision, pediatric, vision therapy, etc.) that are only optional for students at other schools.

Nova Southeastern University has a full range of programs and a diverse student body. The school is large enough to have many resources, but small enough that if feels like a community where everyone knows each other by name. The education is high quality with educators from all over the world. I would recommend the school to anyone.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2016

Nova has the largest SLP program in the nation. It is a very expensive school. However, it does have some good qualities. The faculty are very knowledgeable and organize the classes very well. I really like how the online classes have open book exams. The workload so far has been very doable. The things that I don't like about the school is how expensive it is. Also, whenever you communicate with anyone at the school through email it takes a very long time to get a response. Overall if you are looking for a good distance SLP program I do recommend applying to Nova Southeastern.
