A student must complete an application for admission to the university. Students are required to demonstrate the appropriate aptitude and background for the anticipated area of study. This is accomplished through one of the following means:
- Submission of the student’s ACT or SAT scores. Contact the Admissions Office for specific details regarding requirements.
- Successful completion of an entrance evaluation in place of ACT or SAT scores. This evaluation instrument is administered by the university free of charge.
Students wishing to enter the baccalaureate division must have an associate degree from Sullivan or another accredited institution or have already earned approximately 90 quarter hours or 60 semester hours.
An associate degree in a related field is required for admission at the junior-level. These include Beverage Management, Culinary Arts, Baking & Pastry Arts, Professional Catering, Travel & Tourism, Hotel & Restaurant Management or similar degree. Associate degree graduates from other accredited culinary or hospitality-training institutions are also eligible for junior-level status.
All applicants to Sullivan University’s Graduate School must be either in their final two quarters in a bachelor degree program at Sullivan University or have earned a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution. Candidates for admission to the graduate school must demonstrate proficiency in verbal, written, quantitative, and critical reasoning skills. This can be demonstrated by submitting GMAT or GRE scores, by a review of transcripts of previous undergraduate and any prior graduate courses, or through application of criteria established by the university’s graduate school admissions committee.
