Student & Graduate Reviews (29)
Horrible institution. You will be tested on material not covered in the reading. You will not be taught anything as the "professors" are merely facilitators. From the beginning of this program I have brought forth concerns with the lack of guidance within the courses, the lack of lectures, and the lack of follow through when there are issues. I am now 20k into the program so I have to finish what I started. I love to learn. I love to test. I have been waiting for the opportunity to get my Master's degree for quite a while and feel so very foolish for having been duped into this program. Please do not repeat my mistakes.
I am still amazed how you can have professors that just graduated in a school that offers a doctorate program (without a higher level like a residency). Their professors are all family members, and they dont care if they are not qualified to teach, as long as the whole family is in. The school just wants your money. They dont care if you learn or not, thats reality. I was one of the top students in my class, and I can say I felt I knew very little after graduation. When it comes to rotations, most preceptors dont want to take South students because of the bad quality of students despite their efforts. Some preceptors expressed the low quality of a south student, and how sad it is after paying so high tuition, what a bad preparation. Most students are clueless and are not able to answer basic questions. To study for NAPLEX, you will NOT pass if you rely on Souths education. I passed my board exams thanks to other resources like RxPrep. If I was given the opportunity to go to this school again without paying anything, I would still say no. It is so embarrassing to be now in the world out there and you cant answer basic questions because of the poor education. At this point, exactly one year after graduation, I know of many classmates who have not passed the board exams despite trying to take it several times. I really wish I would have done some research about this school before I applied.
Please I beg you, don't even think of attending this south university. Preparation is very poor and they hit you with exam when they know you have no choice of leaving the school. " if you don't pass this exam, you cannot continue with the program'. If you cannot find a face-face class, please go to a school that will give you value for your money and prepare you for career
South was the worst!! Please don't spend your money here. Admin is horrible and unorganized, financial aid even worse. I ended up changing my nursing to admin. because it was just a horrible experience for me. I did graduate, and with loans from Sallie Mae, etc. I owe $140,000 .
Worst nursing school ever! Only cared about money and payment. Couldn't even get transcript bc I was on payment plan/student loan and didn't pay in full up front. Had to talk to high level manager and beg for one copy. Would not recommend!!! Go somewhere else if you are in nursing!
I am in this school and it is THE WORST!! For the NP program there are more than 3500 students and only 9 full time faculty members. Academic advisors, admissions counselors, they all have been talked to about the continuous problems associated with this program. There is no learning process, much busy work, and they will not go over information you missed on tests and review your areas of weakness. There forum brightspace is a joke!! I am still a year from graduation and am looking into other schools for transfer. I hate it!!
The management was very bad and they didn't want to give you any answer. if you ask me how is the OTA department very very bad. here are basically no standards for admission. There's a test that students have to take, but it's multiple choice and you can pass by randomly guessing. Many students admitted are operating way below college or even high school standards of academics, which is a challenge for the teachers.
Senior student at South and I regret it already. They don't tell you certain things in order to get more money out of their students. Very little support from the staff if you hear from them at all. Too expensive for very little in return or worth it.
Do not waste your time or money here. This school only cares about one thing and it Is taking as much money as they possibly can from their students. The teachers are hardly qualified to be teaching at a college level and the classes are subpar at best. Aside from this, once you leave the college it is nearly impossible to obtain your transcripts to transfer elsewhere. Ive been trying for almost a month now and will most likely not reach the deadline for the other programs where my transcripts are necessary. Staff is extremely rude and extremely unhelpful. South University Round Rock Texas will do nothing but leave you with empty pockets and nothing to show for your time there.
DO NOT ATTEND THIS UNIVERSITY. I was sweet-talked into enrolling in the BSN. I was told ALL of my credits DISCUSSED before enrollment were APPROVED and that I just needed to take a couple of more classes. After enrolling, they said to me that I needed to take more classes; in which case you have no option. Tried contacting counselorsreferred me to registrarsreferred me to director of the program...so on and so on, I did not get any help or resolution. My tuition for two classes was over $4,000, and THEY WILL NOT RELEASE YOUR TRANSCRIPTS. BEWARE OF THIS INSTITUTION
