"Nova is a beautiful place. A beautiful place to put yourself in more debt than your degree will even be worth. Nova is a business, it’s all about money in the end. With the pandemic that is happening as I write this, 100s of people have been laid off without work indefinitely with NO PAY. But students get paid for their time. Not temps. This university needs to do some serious re-evaluating if it’s ethics."

"I loved the small class sizes at Nova Southeastern University. I had the ability to connect with fellow students. The professors were very caring and always willing to help. Being a student at Nova Southeastern University afforded me many opportunities to become involved in research and other community activities. Nova provides numerous opportunities for internships, research and practicum experiences."

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2000
"The professors were helpful. I am hoping the skills I will develop while pursuing my masters degree would enable me to make an effective contribution towards my current employer and be an asset. I am also hoping to use it to be able to work independently and not have to rely on an employer and be an independent thinker, leader and entrepreneur. I want to be able to use the experience towards real life challenges, personal growth. There's are certain positions that requires a masters degree or prefer someone with a masters degree. Having a masters degree would allow me to qualify for those positions and I would be able apply for them. After completing my advance degree, I am anticipating applying for other positions, that would be able to help me more financially. I would be able to present my degree to my current employer in hoping in getting a pay increase. I would have a lot more opportunities available to me, not just at my current employer, but also outside of my employment. I would investigate working for myself if all possible. I might keep my current employment for benefit reason and work on a business part- time and to hope to grow eventually to maybe full-time. There's a lot I can do with an advance degree. Therere more opportunities, more money. You become more of an asset to the organization. I am hoping to apply everything that I learned during my study to my life and work experience and being able to make an effective contribution not just in the work place but in my everyday life. Hopefully, having my masters degree can give the fulfillment that I need and the yearning for knowledge that I have been searching for."

"I currently attend Nova Southeastern University's college of pharmacy and am pursuing a PharmD degree. If you are interested in applying to this program, they highly emphasize on community service programs as well as your academic profile throughout the application process. Overall, I highly recommend this program to undergraduate students interested in pursuing pharmacy. The professors are excellent and willing to help their students."

"It was a great school that provided lots of resources. Perfect for anyone who has a family. There is plenty of opportunity to take online classes if needed. The best part of the program is the internship. They provide hours in the site of choice which gears you up for the real world practice. If it wasnt so expensive then it would be a perfect school."

"I have read many student reviews on Nova Southeastern University, quite a few positive, and about as many negative as well. But one theme that keeps resounding is Nova being labeled as a distance learning school. This is somewhat misleading and possibly inaccurate. Nova Southeastern University, in my assessment as one of their alumni, is a traditional brick and mortar university that built its reputation on distance learning. They were pioneers in distance learning long before it was acceptable and commonplace today. Nova Southeastern University really needs to resolve this issue and make a declarative statement as to what kind of institution they really are...whether a traditional university or an online university. Again, I disagree with the latter, and if Nova feels the same way, they should promote themselves as a traditional university and distance themselves from the for-profit online universities that they are often compared with. I think it would be better to be a traditional university that offers some online degrees, then to be classified as a purely "online" university. The online stigma is harmful and counterproductive to all doctoral graduates of the school, even as popular as online education is today."

"NSU is by-far the most accommodating school you'll ever have the pleasure of attending. The faculty and staff seem as though they have a vested personal interest in your learning and success. Whilst enrolled, I was given several opportunities to enhance my experience, including: individualized research projects, lab projects, poster presentations, and was even asked to travel to represent our research at the 52nd Annual Psychonomics Society. This is an exceptional university. I am proud to be an NSU Graduate."

"Do NOT go to this school if you have any other options. It is the epitome of a degree mill, though for some even that is too good a title. They will take in people whom they are certain will never earn a degree or benefit from the limited offerings they have available, take as much money as they can from them, then spit them out worse off than they came. If you try to give NSU the benefit of the doubt, they will do everything they can not only to bring you down academically, professionally and financially, but to convince you that it is your worthlessness to blame for their failures and your own, until your personal life has been decimated as well. This is not a school, it's a business. Further, it's one run by malicious crooks. Head this warning for your own wellbeing. Run away and never look back."
