Official Tuition Reduction and Adjustment Policy

If a student withdraws or is withdrawn from Sullivan University prior to the completion of the program, he/she will be obligated to Sullivan based on the tuition reduction policy listed in the University catalog. If a student withdraws or is withdrawn and has not paid the non-refundable percentage of tuition, the remaining unpaid balance of the percentage must still be paid as agreed. The University expects the student to complete his/her course of study. The student has 1 ½ times the stated credit hour length of his/her program of study to complete the required coursework.

#Please refer to the Catalog Departmental Introductory pages for “Locations Where Offered” in each program.

All programs are subject to be offered in a mixed delivery method format in which some courses may be offered on campus, online, or hybrid (combined campuses and online). However, not all courses are available in every format.

*Tuition and fee charges are subject to change without notice.

**Enrollment and most other fees are not refundable. Unless otherwise stated, all one-time fees are charged in a student’s 1st quarter of enrollment.

***These majors have a number of meals each quarter as a part of cooking/pastry labs which are covered as a part of their separate comprehensive fee.

****These apartments are for students under the age of 21 only.

***** Students auditing a course will have no tuition charge, however will be charged the Academic Support Fee. Academic Support Fee is waived for Active Duty Military, Practical Nursing, and PharmD students.
