Application Procedure

For admission to a diploma or associate degree program, a student is required to demonstrate the appropriate aptitude and background for the anticipated area of study. This is accomplished through the following means:

  • Submission of a high school diploma or its equivalent, such as the General Educational Development (GED) certificate.
  • Submission of the student’s ACT or SAT scores in place of the entrance evaluation.
  • Completion of an application for admission to the University with an application fee.
  • Request of transcripts from all educational institutions previously attended.

Students wishing to enter the Baccalaureate Division in Business Administration, Human Resource Leadership, or Information Technology must:

  • Possess an associate degree from Sullivan or another accredited institution, or approximately 90 quarter or 60 semester hours of credit.
  • Complete an application for admission to the University with an application fee.
  • Submit a high school diploma or its equivalent, such as the General Educational Development (GED) certificate.
  • Request transcripts from all educational institutions previously attended.

Students wishing to enter the on-campus Baccalaureate Division in Paralegal Studies must possess an associate degree in Paralegal Studies from Sullivan or another paralegal program that is either ABA-approved, or which is in substantial compliance with ABA guidelines and otherwise appropriately accredited, or is a full member of the American Association for Paralegal Education. Associate degree applicants must meet the University’s entrance requirements for associate degree admission.

Students wishing to enter the Baccalaureate Division in Hospitality Management must possess an associate degree in a hospitality major from Sullivan or another regionally or nationally accredited institution.

Applicant Interview

The University individually interviews and advises each person seeking admission. This interview often takes place on campus. Interviews can also be conducted in-home, virtual, or on-campus. Students from other parts of the United States or international students may complete an application by mail or online. Students can visit the University’s website at www.sullivan.edu if a visit to the campus is impossible.

Non-Degree Seeking Students

Students who enroll for personal and/or professional development rather than to pursue a diploma or degree, may apply for admission to the University as non-degree students. Admission status is determined by the information reported by the applicant. A high school transcript or GED certificate is required. There is no limit to the number of credit hours a non-degree student may accumulate. There is, however, no guarantee that should the student decide to convert enrollment status to degree-seeking, that those courses taken while a non-degree student will be applicable to a Sullivan University degree program. The person who converts to degree-seeking status must meet all regular admissions requirements. Students whose status is non-degree seeking and who are taking individual subjects are responsible for notifying the Registrar’s office if they choose to become degree-seeking.

Admission to the Graduage School and College of Pharmacy

In addition to the application process and international student procedures listed above, see the Graduate School section or the College of Pharmacy section of this catalog for admission requirements to those programs.
