Paying for School

Get the Money You Need for College

Some students may believe they are not financially capable of attending a college or university; however, almost everyone can afford Sullivan University. Even if you think you're not financially fit, Sullivan's Financial Planning Office will offer advice and find ways to help you obtain the financial assistance necessary to complete your education. If you want to obtain financial aid information, please contact an admissions officer as early as possible to coordinate an appointment with Financial Planning. Day, evening and weekends appointments are available.

Military: There are several opportunities exclusively for military personnel, including 100% paid tuition of up to $4,500 per year. You can learn more about these opportunities online from the Army Continuing Education System.

  • Federal PLUS and Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loans — for students who do not qualify for the above-listed loan programs
  • Career Education Funds — institutional loans for students who don't qualify otherwise for adequate financial aid. The loan amounts vary according to need.

If you are interested in information about student loans, talk to an admissions officer today for an appointment with a financial counselor.

  • Part-time jobs— available through information received by the Career Services office
  • Rehabilitation programs— for students with substantial handicaps to employment
  • UPS Earn & Learn— a joint venture between Sullivan University and UPS for students who work up to 20 hours per week
