WORST SCHOOL EVER. The school advisers all seem so nice but in fact they are a group of salesman with a mouth full of samples. After taking 18 months of classes and hoping to finish soon I was told that I am only half way done and 15,000 in debt from loans they took out for me. I was never contacted on these loans as they used my social security number and a so called ... [Read more]

Money hungry school
June 25, 2012
South University is a money hungry school. I attended this school from 2010-2011 and was on the dean’s list every semester with a great GPA. While I loved the 5 week learning online I finally realized that this school cared more about receiving my money than me as a student. I had about 24 credits from previous colleges that I attended and South only to 6 of them because they wanted me to take their ... [Read more]

make you regret attending
May 23, 2012
This school is horrible! Every other week my financial aid would change with no clear reason why......I had to pay way to much out of pocket. They keep you in the dark about your account changes.....one day I owed $800....the next they told me $7000. Wtf! They don't care about you or treat you like your human with feelings. The people in finance don't know what they are doing and are not considerate. Going to ... [Read more]

Great College but expensive
May 11, 2012
I am about to graduate from South. South University is NOT a diploma mill college. A typical diploma mill college is one who is not accredited properly or at all. South University is accredited regionally like most any other college or university that is legit. Their original campus is in Savannah, GA and they have been in business since 1899. South is a PRIVATE college which does not receive funds from the government like other ... [Read more]

South University Review
October 12, 2012
I recently graduated from South University and as far as the classes....I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I had one professor that was absolutely horrible, but overall the rest of the professors I had were excellent. The school is very expensive, but keep on mind you pay for what you get. You will work hard and apply yourself if you want to earn a degree at this school. I think the people who have complaints lack ... [Read more]

Do not go here!!!!!!!!
June 21, 2012
I had to file a federal complaint in order to get my finances straight with this university. They took my Army TA and never credited my account, made me pay out of pocket, and then didn't give me the military rate that is advertised. This place is horrible, you can find a real university to go to, skip this school. [Read more]

Very happy with the school
May 11, 2012
I am in my second year at South University Online living in California. I had some financial aid problems in the past but they were worked out. I can see many of the reviews were not great but maybe it is because these students didn't apply themselves or expected the school to do everything for them. Many of these bad reviews the student did not acknowledge how they were doing academically. I feel the online ... [Read more]
