Student & Graduate Reviews

3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018

As a student who is new to online education, Nova provides many resources to help students get comfortable navigating courses online, like trainings. The professors make themselves available because they understand everyone's busy schedule. It is very supportive and informative.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

This is an amazing program in a fantastic area. The professors and everyone involved with the program wants all of their students to succeed and be happy with the work they are able to experience and accomplish with the help of and throughout this program. There is so much diversity and you get to meet so many different kinds of people; it is very rewarding!

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2017

Nova's Marriage and Family Therapy Master's program changed my life. Leaving a public school and entering a private one had a massive impact on my wallet. However, the office of financial aid always has someone ready and willing to help you with your finances or simply put your mind at ease. You can find recent graduates woven throughout the faculty, as well as star-studded professionals within the field. It is an honor not only to learn from these individuals, but also have the opportunity to work alongside them! One of the best aspects about this program is their commitment to students. More than once weekly, the department sends e-mail alerts with job opportunities, reminders, and even general upcoming events related to the field. Professors are genuinely concerned for the academic AND emotional well-being of their students. They constantly offer personal experiences, what they learned from them, and how emerging professionals can make different, better choices. The balance between research and clinical work expected within the program helps to ensure well-rounded and informed therapists, who actually have solid experience under their belts. All in all, my experience in the Master's program directly impacted my decision to apply for the PhD program. After turning down a significant scholarship for another program, I chose Nova instead—confident that I will be shaped into the best possible professional I can be.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018

Pro's Nova Southeastern University is a very good University I obtained my Bachelors in nursing through them and now I will get my Master's in Nurse Practitioner. I so far have no Con's.
3.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016

The online MSHRM program works well in balancing full-time work and full-time studying. Professors are extremely helpful in answering questions and ensuring that students learn the material well. Only con I can think of is the quality of student work at times. It could be because it's a graduate program and I expect to see more, but sometimes group projects can be a nightmare.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences
Graduation Year: 2020

Nova Southeastern University has great qualitities. For the most part the faculty is very helpful, but there are some courses that are extremely disorganized. The great thing about my program is that it provides a bridge from the Master's program into the actual dental school on campus.
4.5 out of 5.0
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

Nova Southeastern University has a rigorous Family Nurse Practitioner program designed to challenge prospective candidates. It is designed to assist students in progressing at a graduate level in treating people throughout the life cycle. The con of the program is the travel time to the West Palm campus as it is a must in this particular program.
4.17 out of 5.0
Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2020

I am currently in the Clinical Psychology program at Nova Southeastern University. The professors at the institution are extremely brilliant and helpful in all of the students endeavors. I do wish there was more academic competitiveness and social life available at this program, but the extracurricular and opportunities available are unlike any other.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program at my university is excellent and well renowned. I feel that students can build far beyond their undergraduate education because they have access to great professors, new technology, and competitive peers. However, the cost of living in Florida on top of the financial burden of loans can make it difficult to concentrate on studying. Since there are many students needing financial relief and not enough opportunities for tuition waiving jobs or research assistant positions (which also help alleviate school finances), many students have to rely on full-time jobs to fiance school and the cost of living.
4.08 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I was a little hesitant about in enrolling an all online program. I have been attending courses for little over a year, and the experience was been great. Advisors and faculty are readily accessible and promptly respond to requests. The course work is challenging, but pairing it with knowledgeable professors makes it a great learning experience. The only con to NOVA is the access to financial aid beyond loans. School funded scholarships are very competitive and hard to come by in my opinion, even with a high GPA.
