Vanessa Ryland - 6/16/2020
Degree: Management
Graduation Year: 2021
"I would NOT recommend the Doctoral program online. Courses are very intense. Trying to teach and learn statistics online is extremely difficult. I did not get the support I needed due to COVID 19 so I had to withdraw. I received a nice bill for $3550.00 and a few harassing calls to follow up on making a payment. I am very upset with how my situation was handled. I would not recommend this school for online learning programs."

"I feel the Masters Program was run very well. I had no difficulties and my degree has helped my career significantly. The staff was always courteous and helpful to me and many of the instructors really went out of their way to help me. Overall I had a great experience there."

"Absolutely do not recommend this school. They took away the Bachelor's program during my last 2 quarters there and NO ONE is willing to hure you with just an Associate's in my field. Not only that I've been told over and over again that I have a bunch of pointless graphic classes that wasn't needed by potential employers. The career services ignored you until half a year after finishing my program and they begin spamming my email with surveys about how my "new job I got with my degree". Starting at IUS and none of the credits was transferrable so I'm pretty much starting over. Finally, I was assured I would not owe anything out of pocket all throughout my time there yet upon completion of my degree I was told I owed them a little over $2000 because I "graduated early" but then told me I graduated on time. This place is a joke."

"The career services are not reliable source for job connections. It's hard to even get hired from the college I graduated from. I have asked for help and I feel like they dont care, because they don't reply to my email and they act rude in person. They look at me and never greet me. I paid alot of money for poor service."

"Dont give Sullivan University your hard earned money! Teachers are great but administration is just out for your money. Theyll make you feel like family until youre enrolled. I feel like a sucker that got scammed. I regret enrolling and not listening to those who tried to tell me."

"Instructors are all wonderful and professional people. However, the rest of the school is pretty disappointing. Staff has let the school/housing become run down and a little depressing. There are NO good activities for students to be involved in, and the school lacks a sense of community or pride. Staff is very rude and unhelpful a lot of the time as well. Sullivan provides students a professional email that they said would last for life. A few years after graduating student's emails are deleted and people who paid thousands of dollars are no longer allowed access to Sullivan's resources. The teacher's are great, but all in all not a pleasant experience. Would do it over differently if I could."

Alex - 7/3/2018
Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2019
"I've seen alot of negative reviews of Sullivan on this website, but alot of them are all focused on issues normally caused by the students themselves. Pursing a degree online is challenging, and you shouldn't expect people to hold your hands. Are there teachers who are a little sub par? Sure, but that's with any university. From applying and having meetings with my student coordinator I was put in the right place easily. All the information needed to succeed is always available, albeit you may need to look for it. The classes in IT are very thorough and provide a wealth of knowledge. In the end it's about researching and knowing the curriculum and formats of the classes, it's all laid out on their website."

"HIGHLY do NOT recommend attending Sullivan University. When you think youve paid enough on your tuition, they bump up your pay without you knowing. Also, Ive been paying on time for a bit 7 months now, and they neglected to inform me that Im not paying enough, so instead of paying $259 a month, I am supposed to pay $1,500 a month. That will screw your over badly. For your sake, dont get yourself in this mess."

EX SULLIVAN STUDENT - 2/20/2018
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2018
"This school is primarily out for your hard earned money, financial aid, tuition assistance, and any other funds they can get, and are not really worried about the students. I have been to a major university as well as another college , and both schools may cost only a little more or less than Sullivan University, but somehow I end up having to pay out of pocket, but when I went to the other schools there was money left over so that I can buy my books. I needed my transcripts from there and I paid 10.00 for an UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT not official, but they still charge 10.00. I called days later to see if I can pick up my transcripts and nobody knew where it was. The records room manager R. doesn't care and also has a bad attitude instead of trying to resolve the issue. She told me to call another department which I did , and they didn't have it either, and said I need to speak with R. again. You pay for something, they don't know where it is, and just tell you they don't see it nothing else. Never again."

Degree: Medical Office Administration
Graduation Year: 2010
"At first this school was pretty good I liked it for the first couple of quarters but then realization hit they are only money hungry. When I applied back in 2016 I wanted to be a medical student but I missed one question on the test and was put in the medical office after being in the field and watching everyone around me be a medical assistant I was told by one of my "peers" that the medical office was not being funded anymore and will have students paying out of pocket now to keep the program running I met with academic advisor which had told me originally that it was true so then they switched me into medical administration find and dandy till it messed with my financial aid and I was later told that there program for medical office was OK and they are Recruiting new students every day in the field!!!! I was so p***** that I just said s**** it and dropped out bunch of c*** it was I would not recommend this school to anyone not even my worse enemy"
