It’s part of our mission to provide convenient ways for students across the nation and all over the globe to earn a degree from Nova Southeastern University. That’s why we offer many of our degree programs through distance education, with classes delivered outside the Fort Lauderdale area either online, or at one of our Student Educational Centers throughout Florida.
Students don’t have to be on our main campus to have a traditional college experience.

Our Centers provide opportunities to develop friendships, form study groups and use videoconferencing equipment to connect with the main campus.
