Get the money you need for college
Some students may believe they are not financially capable of attending a college or university; however, almost everyone can afford Sullivan University. Even if you think you’re not financially fit, Sullivan’s Financial Planning Office will offer advice and find ways to help you obtain the financial assistance necessary to complete your education. If you want to obtain financial aid information, please contact an admissions officer as early as possible to coordinate an appointment with Financial Planning. Day, evening and weekends appointments are available.
Military: There are several opportunities exclusively for military personnel, including 100% paid tuition of up to 16 credit hours per year. You can learn more about these opportunities online from the Army Continuing Education System.

- Federal Pell Grants — available to lower-income families, and which does not have to be repaid (all Sullivan campuses)
- Federal Supplemental Opportunity Educational Grants — for students with exceptional need (Louisville and Ft. Knox campuses and the National Center for Hospitality Studies)
- Kentucky Tuition Grant — for Kentucky students with proven need who have met KHEAA’s residency requirements
- Sullivan Institutional Grants — provided by the school to students with demonstrated need (all Sullivan campuses)
