What Students Are Saying

3.77 Average Rating
This is a really fantastic school, although it's a tad expensive. Teachers are all very qualified and challenge you to independently work, and think(however they are more than happy to help).
Nicholas from Palm Coast, FL
Nova Southeastern University is an excellent choice for any child who wants to go to college. Moreover, the class sizes are extremely small and they give you value for your money.
