"South University needs an overhaul in their faculty and administration. This school is faculty and money driven, NOT STUDENT DRIVEN. I have seen most faculty do the bare minimum in each course and there a few exceptions, but not many. Throughout my program I have felt as if the information being presented is watered down and only touches the surface of what we need to know in our field. This is a Master's program and we should be master's in our field when we graduate. The old and new clinical coordinator have both failed the school and the students. Admissions and the program director guarantees each student that the clinical coordinator has your back when it is time to go out on practicum and internship and you will be successfully placed before your term starts. We have so little connections in the community, we do not have enough sites to be placed. I was already in the middle of my term and should have been placed. I was offered to fail the practicum course, withdraw and still owe the estimated $4000k in tuition for the course, all because the clinical coordinator did not do her job. Cultivating relationships requires you to get out there and meet people and not sit at desk and just use the phone. Like I said, faculty driven and not student driven. Another area of concern, when a student is caught cheating on an exam and the class witnesses the offense, the faculty hide it and do nothing to the students. Those very same students who cheated and got a passing grade are offered into the Honor Society and serve in office roles. Where is their honor? Where is the honesty? I am embarrassed to attend South University and the reputation all over the news says the same things I am saying here, they are in business for money, highest tuition rates in the country!"

"This program was challenging at times but rewarding. The staff was very helpful and the instructors were great. If you ever needed one on one the instructors made themselves available. I would recommend this program to anyone who is passionate and willing to put their best foot toward. They will work with you as long as your willing to ask and give your best."
