SouthVR - a virtual classroom experience

Starting April 4, South University, will offer SouthVR a temporary learning format created to help our students continue their education during the COVID-19 pandemic. This format will differ from both campus and online classes by offering live scheduled instruction in a remote environment.

    South University - Tampa Reviews

    I have attended South University for three years majoring in psychology. The school is small, but that is what makes it so nice. Faculty and staff are always available to students. An example of how attentive the university is can be found in the following anecdote. A student was unable to attend graduation ceremonies the previous week. The staff actually staged a mini commencement just for the student. That is praiseworthy!

    Expensive - financial aid office does not accurately inform students of expenses and are selective in who they assist in obtaining financial aid.
    It took more than 2 years to get them to send my diploma.
    Changing expectations based on frequent fluctuating leadership and inconsistent standards based on the professors' student preference.
    South university Tampa is a really nice school. The staff is very helpful for the most part and extremely friendly! They offer tutoring and even one on one with certain professors. I like that we go by quarters and that it’s new and refreshing every 11 weeks ! It goes fast and it’s totally worth it ! Lots of programs to choose from and hands in learning ! I would like to change one thing... the snack machines lol they are the worst ! But luckily the art institute is on the other side and they have a student lounge with more food options !
