Admission to the University

Sullivan University continually strives to attract students who are committed to higher learning and career development. The University actively searches for those students who have the aptitude and desire to earn a university diploma or degree within their chosen career field. Student housing is available for those who qualify; see an admissions officer for details.

Admissions Acceptance Requirements

  • Acceptance is based on recommendation from the Admissions Officer following the interview.
  • Meeting the minimum test scores on the ACT\SAT\ or on campus assessment.

Two plus two program

Sullivan University’s undergraduate academic programs are set up on a 2 + 2 format. This means that a student progresses through an associate degree (first 2) on the way to a bachelor’s program as a college junior; the classes required to complete the bachelor’s degree are listed by major in our catalog. Since all bachelor degrees are in the 2 + 2 format, only the additional classes are noted in the catalog for the last portion of the bachelor’s degree. In some programs, a few classes are required for bachelor’s degree completion that may not have been a part of the student’s associate degree program; these classes are noted at the end of each bachelor’s degree curriculum and also on the student’s bachelor’s degree curriculum planner and scheduling guide. In all instances, a minimum of 180 quarter credit hours are required for bachelor’s degree completion; some majors will except the 180 credit hour minimum.

Equal opportunity admissions

It is the policy of Sullivan University to admit all applicants who meet the University’s academic and technical standards for admission or participation in a particular education program or activity without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, creed, sex, disability, or age.

Rolling acceptance policy

There is no deadline for submitting an application for admission. The University has a rolling admissions policy and those who apply first are accepted first. It is best to submit an application as early as possible to be considered before the date students anticipate starting their classes. New classes begin in January, March, June and September of each year.

Requests for accommodation

Sullivan supports the tenets and spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Accommodations include special parking facilities, ramped entrances, elevator services, and accessible water fountains and restroom facilities. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the institution of any disabilities, physical and/or mental, which might in any way affect the student’s academic progress. Sullivan will make reasonable accommodations to meet the needs of any student with a disability. Please contact Student Services for more information.


Prior to beginning classes, Sullivan students participate in an orientation program designed to acclimate the student to college and specifically to Sullivan University. Orientation is held prior to the start of each quarter, and introduces the student to University policy as well as to staff and faculty. Orientation offers incoming students helpful ways of adjusting through personality analysis, class scheduling and special informational sessions. The transition to college is an important time in a person’s life; Sullivan’s orientation gives students the foundation to begin their success in a college career.
