Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2018

they are very nice when you visit the school and start the application process. But when you start the college, they are not very helpful. Its also a private university, therefore, the cost of attendance is high. The professors are recent graduates, therefore, when they gain experience; they leave the school to a better school and are replaced with new professors.

Degree: Pharmacy
Graduation Year: 2019

South college has a 3 year (accelerated) PharmD program. The school of pharmacy is actually at a satellite building away from the main campus along with the PA and nursing students. The teachers are amazing and are genuinely interested in your education and bettering the students. Many of the professors also have a PharmD degree and cater the courses to what you will need to know in practice. The class size is usually around 70-80 which makes for a small, tight knit class. Parking is great since the building is only for the graduate program's students and faculty. South is a great choice for someone who is trying to earn their degree quicker and get out into the work force.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Having an online program works well with my current work schedule and family life. Tuition cost played a major part in my decision to choose this school. I did have a few instructors who did not contribute much to my online learning, but overall I have been impressed with the faculty and program. If I had to do anything different, I would choose a local program so that I could have a hands-on experience for the advanced health and physical assessment course.

Excellent PA program. On the expensive side but on par with other private programs. They set you up for success from the beginning.

The online environment is meant for people that are independent. The school is currently redesigning its curriculum. The school is great and getting better.

Degree: Health Sciences

I love that it is all online since I am still working full time. The online experience at South University is excellent. They provide a very thorough online orientation and have multiple resources available even for their online students. The Admissions Representative was absolutely wonderful.

Degree: Health Sciences

I have felt tremendous support from the staff and faculty since day 1. They have many useful tools to help you succeed. I was skeptical about online programs, but South University has made me a believer and helped to make it a smooth transition.

Degree: Nursing

I love the fact that the classes are online. It is very convenient while working and raising a family. The difficult part is finding your own clinical sites for practicums for your classes
