*As a note to students who live in Tennessee, with the TN Promise, you can attend the first two years of college at South College and get a private education for the same price as a public school. With that, you’ll receive the benefits of a private education such as smaller class sizes, more one-on-one time with faculty, flexible learning and more – not to mention the cost savings!

Several of our program options include online components or are 100% online to increase flexibility.


With classes sizes that allow students to engage with instructors, you have the opportunity to make college work for you by asking the questions, gaining personal insights and understanding both the theory and practical application of your new knowledge.


Our student services and financial aid departments are here to help. South College offers services to help you along the way including tutoring, disability services, student organizations and clubs, career services, student activities and events, and counseling.


No matter where you are in your educational journey – coming out of high school or taking a break from working to go back to school or trying to move to the next level position– we make our enrollment as easy as possible for you
