Mike Smith - 4/16/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"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!!"

Sad And Upset - 4/5/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2018
"There were times that things seemed to be acceptable with South University, but there were so many problems as well. With more than one course, the website issues were terrible: old links, old references, outdated schedules, wrong links to other sites, dates that were posted wrong constantly, etc. One instructor was demeaning, rude, negative, and spiteful; she was the worst instructor I have ever had. With one test, there was a new format that had a second page to a test; I did not notice the second page. That huge loss of points on a very heavily weighted test, was disastrous to my grade: I had to re-take an entire 10-week course, with clinical portion, all over again...terrible punishment for not noticing they changed a technical method of presenting a test with a second page I did not notice. Some courses had very weak content posted by students that was apparently acceptable and not challenged. Some single tests were very heavily weighted, over all other work done in a course. IT support was never available right away, and there were many technical issues with their site and their sites we needed to use for courses. I would highly recommend not choosing South University. Please look up their graduation percentages and other statistics that show many students got out when they could more easily continue on elsewhere. I stuck it out too long with this school, so that I felt I needed to finish with South University I am not proud in any way to be associated with South University."

Degree: Occupational Therapy Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014
"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. "

Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2019
"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."

Kayla Ramirez - 2/12/2018
Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2018
"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."

Santiago - 1/19/2018
Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017
"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"

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Adult-Gerontology Acute Care)
Graduation Year: 2018
"I'm about to graduate and through these two years I must said I had a good experience. The classes are hard, there isn't a lot of homework, but you will learn a lot. I do recommend this school. The teachers always responded to my questions and provided meaningful feedback to my work."

Classof2020Student - 1/5/2018
Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2020
"This is a very poor program,and I do not recommend it. The teachers are not all qualified to teach the classes in which they do, and most instructors handout large PowerPoints and send you home to teach yourself rather than them teaching at all. Students are not able to get questions answered as many teachers literally do not know. Books are not always provided limiting student resources, online technological learning is not utilized, database access is limited, students only have one printed in the pharmacy building, labs are out dated, teamwork is not encouraged, instructors are highly unprofessional, and educational information is distorted to the instructors liking and not in accordance with realistic scientific/Pharmaceutical information. YES.... teachers infact teach FALSE information when they desire. It is not likely students from this school perform well on rotations due to the lack of hands on pharmaceutical practice prior to them, and lack of utilized team work. It is also not likely a student passed the boards without additional assistance from Kaplan or some other outside preparation group. This school is highly saddening!"

"Everything started off great the contact and communication between my advisors and myself, then they started letting me know they needed things at the last minute when it was to late. My financial aid advisor was the WORST! And so ignorant! I did not get to graduate from this college they messed up my credit so I picked up and went to a different online to, which I should have chose frm the beginning!!!! Im so angry with myself for ever putting myself in this kind of situation"
