Minimum Eligibility Requirements:

Admissions requirements vary by program.

'I can truly say that during my experience at South University I have only encountered positive, encouraging, intelligent, and professional staff who want their students to be successful. The professors that I have been assigned all had virtual office hours, and although most are practicing practitioners/professionals, they were always available by email throughout the day and responded to my messages/request in a timely manner.'

-Adrienne Hampton, 2016 graduate of South University, Online Programs' Master of Science in Nursing with a Specialization in Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse program
