Nova Southeastern University (NSU)
Located in Fort Lauderdale/Davie and built in 1964, NSU is one of Florida’s largest private research universities. With 150+ degree programs, academically this school has good programs and price points. NSU also offers Master's Dual Degree Programs which include: D.M.D./M.B.A., J.D./M.Acc., M.B.A. or M.S.R.E.D., and Pharm.D./M.B.A. A unique aspect of this school is that almost all undergrad classes are taught in one building. Primarily freshman and sophomores live on campus, while upperclassmen mostly live off campus, although on-campus housing is available all four years.
Florida Atlantic University (FAU)
A top national university according to U.S. News & World Report, FAU is located in Boca Raton. This school is recognized as the most diverse public university in Florida. Taking into account the housing and the overall campus in general – it’s best described as tranquil. Out of state affordability makes FAU a great option to consider, especially if you are looking to escape from a cold winter state. For example, it would cost less for a student from Massachusetts to attend FAU rather than many of our in-state public universities.
University of Miami
With more than 19,000 students, UMiami is a top private research university just outside Miami in Coral Gables. This school is known for their academics, likely helped by their average smaller class size of 13 to 1 student/faculty ratio, as well as for their Division 1 athletic prowess. While UMiami’s total cost is over $80,000 a year, they DO offer very generous merit and financial aid packages for those that qualify including Veterans and ROTC types of aid as well.

Thank you to Daniel Rolins (shown in center photo), a PCCI Class of 2023 student and current UMiami Freshman, for the wonderful educational tour and “insider’s look” of his campus! It’s no wonder he loves it there!
“Highly recommend PCCI! We hired PCCI during my daughter’s sophomore year of HS. To me the college process seemed very overwhelming, and I didn’t know where to start. Over the past 3 years, Nod has worked with our daughter to narrow down her choices, schedule tours, reach out to admissions and coaches, schedule interviews, review essays and applications and then guided her on when to apply. I didn’t realize how important the timing of all of these steps were. I cannot say enough great things on how amazing Nod and PCCI’s services have been to our family. My daughter was accepted to all the schools she applied and she was recruited and signed at her top choice. Thank you Nod for all you have done to help Samantha with this process.”
