"I enjoyed going to Nova Southeastern University. I found the campus life inviting and I liked the education I received. The teachers were knowledgeable and willing to help us. They also worked to make sure we understood the material and that we had access to resources that would help us."

tired of this school - 12/7/2016
Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2017
"This school is the absolute worst. You want to take a certain class? well you probably can't considering it's not available till an even year winter semester or an odd year fall semester. Want to take summer classes? well you can't get scholarships or use your fasfa... so then why not transfer to a college for summer and then come back? Well you can't because if you do, those credits do not count. Want to ever transfer out of NSU? WELL YOU CAN'T because nsu's credits can't transfer to the other colleges because of the rules that nsu made in order for you to be stuck at the school. Already payed your tuition for the semester? well guess what, you're going to have a phone call every week about how you didn't pay and they're putting a hold on your classes. Had scholarships for the whole year? well watch out for next year because they just might cancel the scholarships without telling you even when your grades are the same and you're on the deans list. Are you in the arts department? well news for you, they hold no auditions, so anyone and everyone is let even if they have no talent"

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016
"It's a very new program and nobody seems to know what they're doing there. It is completely unorganized, staff are very unprofessional, and there's a lack of support with clinical placement, etc the list goes on and plenty of drama and politics. So disappointed"

"I am very pleased with my five years attending NSU's EdD program. Not only are the faculty superb professionals, they truly cared about each doctoral learner as a person! My current Chair is a wonderful educator who provides sound guidance blended with lots of enthusiasm for me to complete my dissertation's last two chapters. I have helped three friends matriculate into the EdD program and yes they still speak to me. :-) My only challenge is with certain members of traditional academia with PhD's who admit to a bias against hiring EdD degree holders. Go check out NSU and their terrific campus in Fort Lauderdale."

"I have had no issues with Nova. My academic advisor was the best from day 1. She followed up in a timely manner to all calls and emails. Professors were professional. All of their contact information including office , home, and cell numbers. Only one professor posed a problem but for the most part, everything was good."

Degree: Conflict Resolution
Graduation Year: 2016
"I love Nova Southeastern University. First of all the campus is just so beautiful. I also believe that students receive a quality education for at this institution. The student-to-faculty ratio is low and the staff and administration are very helpful with the students. I feel a strong sense of community there and would recommend this university to anyone. The only downside about the university may be expensive tuition."

"For all the hype that this school gets, it doesn't live up to it's name. Nova is very overpriced and the curriculum that it offers is ridiculous. Professors were never available and they always had an attitude when I tried to reach out to them. Will be transferring for next semester. Don't waste your money and risk going into debt, in order to attend this university. There are other universities that are even more qualified and less expensive than this one to attend, and can provide you with a better education."
