Future students are strongly adviced to explore the websites listed below which explain official regulations and the legal process for students wishing to pursue academic studies in the United States.


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 seeking 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.

However, should the student decide to convert his or her enrollment status from non-degree seeking to degree-seeking there is no guarantee that the courses taken while in a non-degree seeking status will be applicable to a particular Sullivan University degree program. The person who converts to a degree-seeking status must meet all regular admissions requirements for the appropriate degree-seeking program. A student whose status is non-degree seeking is responsible for notifying the registrar’s office if he or she chooses to become a degree-seeking student.

Please Note: Courses with the prefixes BFS and PBA, as well as CAM 252, CAM 256, and CAM 260 may not be taken by non-degree seeking students.
