Since 1962, we have created an environment where students from different places and different stages of life can come together, exchange ideas, and learn and that is what makes Sullivan unique.
Sullivan University encourages international understanding through intercultural exchange derived from the admission of qualified international students from countries throughout the world. The University’s academic requirements for admission as described in other sections must be met. All necessary documents including academic records, financial certificate and proof of English language proficiency must be received before permission to enroll and the I-20 Form can be issued.
Applicants are required to provide official or certified copies of academic records. Records in any language other than English must be accompanied by a certified English translation.
Financial ability must be demonstrated by completion of a financial certificate including signatures of the sponsor and a bank official. Persons receiving a scholarship may demonstrate financial ability by sending an original or certified copy of the award letter including the amount of the scholarship or the expenses it covers. The university may require an advance deposit of funds to cover one year’s tuition and living expenses for all non-immigrant international students before issuance of the I-20 Form.
All applicants, undergraduate and graduate, whose native language is not English must submit TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), IELTS or iTEP scores to demonstrate basic English proficiency. Applicants native to Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand and the United Kingdom will be presumed to be proficient.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to obtain necessary information and application forms and to schedule and take the test by a date that will assure delivery of results to the university by required deadlines. Only TOEFL scores of 197 (computer-based), 500 (paper-based) or 70 (Internet-based) will be considered for admission to any program in the university. TOEFL scores are only valid for two years after the test date. An IELTS score of 6.5 or an iTEP score of 4.0 is required for undergraduate students and 5.0 is required for graduate students.
Applications received from international students will be reviewed on a competitive basis. Fulfillment of the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the university. An effort will be made to admit students from a variety of countries.
