Sullivan University's Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Informational Webpage
Sullivan University officials are continuing to monitor the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and its presence in Louisville, Lexington and surrounding areas. Sullivan University is following its Pandemic Preparedness Plan along with guidance and recommendations from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and local and state health authorities. While officials have taken steps to minimize exposure to the Sullivan University community, it is important that everyone do their part to help minimize the potential spread of the virus. Sullivan University strongly encourages all students, faculty, staff, and visitors to become familiar with prevention and self-isolation protocols and procedures announced by the CDC. Links contained on this webpage provide easy access to those sites and information.
Sullivan University’s campus buildings and offices are open. To access a campus building, students, faculty, staff and visitors must participate in a screening process to include a temperature check, practice social distancing and proper hand hygiene, and wear a mask and any other appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) at all times while in a public area of the building. The institution plans to return to on-campus didactic courses as soon as safely possible. Until that time, online instruction will continue uninterrupted. Lab classes and courses that require in person instruction will continue to meet with all appropriate safety protocols in place.
Incoming, new students with questions should reach out to their Admissions Advisor. Active students who may have a question or need may reach out to the following departments by email or phone:
