"Waste of time and money at any cost. Go to any other school before choosing this one. They charge three times the cost of other schools and offer nothing for the price. Most of the classes are taught by instructors that have no pride in their institution and are only teaching part time to supplement their regular salaries earned at real schools."

"I transferred to South from Argosy when Argosy closed from misappropriation of funding. South is their sister school, so they took my credits. Since transferring I have been living a nightmare. I have no idea who is on my grad team (changes all the time with no notification). My school funding is a mess. I can't reach people to talk or ask questions. I've had either incredible teachers...or horrific ones. The instructors don't seem to be on the same page for APA formatting. Don't call out their mistakes though, you'll get blacklisted. Retaliation is allowed at South. This goes for admin as well! I did not want a loan because I was not currently attending. I was issued the loans anyway. During this time I was accepted into Berkeley - business (much cheaper than South!). However, South took those loans and I did not know, so I had a balance of nearly $4000 and they would not release my transcripts. I have been signed up for the classes I've already passed like 28 times...but it's damned impossible to contact anyone. I've actually gotten through once. Money hungry school. Severe biases. Horrible set up. No communication. At some point this school needs to look at where their students are saying they are failing and start fixing things. Doubt this will happen."

"I am a Pre-BSN student. 7 more classes and I can apply to the nursing program. I can honestly say everybody experience is different. I may feel different down the line because I am a pre-BSN student. My admission Rep. is great. Christina. She got me in, broke down 3 plans for me and when I felt like I couldn't do it she help me decrease my classes and did what was best for me. Its all in how bad you want it. No college is really going to hold your hand and baby you every step of the way. Financial aid called me and broke down every dollar I am spending on my degree, so nobody can say right now in this year that financial aid is not doing their job because they are. You got to be able to grind for your degree. Yes this school is expensive but I have learned that you get what you pay for. Granted their are other programs out here that will pay for your school, etc.. but their are soooo many resources, you can use that nobody really talks about. My professors have no issue with replying to my emails within 24-48 hours. If I need help they are their. You get what you put out. If you need a nursing program that is willing to kind of of hold your hand go to a community college, but you still have to work for it. Always remember if it was easy everybody would be doing it. Experience your own Experience and not be discouraged by someone's else experience."

"South University staff really cares about their students. They will work work with you every step of the way and the professors will reach out to you and are willing to help. Overall it's adorable and it's a accredited school.. The staff will call you frequently just to check up on you and to see how you are .I'm gladl that I chose South University to purse my degree"

"My daughter graduated from the Columbia campus in the middle of the pandemic. Her counselor never helped her at all. She could never get an answer when she called. She had no help preparing her for any type job once she graduated and when she emailed teachers for references, she got NO ANSWERS. She was continuously on the dean's list and once was on the president's list. She had no help getting a job and is currently in a part time job that she had to do other training for. I am very disappointed in the way she was treated after graduation. And now she's deeply in debt from this school."

"Please do not enroll in this college in Savannah Georgia. It is only for profit. They charm you and get it going and as time goes on, the heck with you. The faculty is unethical and will not reply back to emails. Frankly the faculty appears to be some type of ."clan". When there is a complaint about an instructor, they go into full blast coverup mode at all expense. They attempt to make students feel bad and that they are the problem. It is a sad story when one steps back and take a look from the outside. Veterans, please don't enroll in this school; they only want your money. They don't like to hear about issues with faculty and instructors. There are racist issues with faculty. Students pay money and want the best education; again this is not their philosophy. They should close this school and put lock and chains on the door."
