[Top 20] The Sims 4 Best University Mods

An acceptance letter from the Sims 4 Discover University.
You've been accepted to university in The Sims 4!

20. Teens Jump to University

This incredibly entertaining mod is similar to a feature of the High School Years expansion pack! If your teen gets an A in high school, he or she may be able to graduate early and go straight to university! 

The chances aren't great, but genius sims have a good chance. Your teen will see a pop-up window with this opportunity. 

You don't have to do this if you haven't finished watching your child grow up! You can simply decide to keep your teen in high school, and his or her life will go on as usual.

What’s Fun About Teens Jump to University:

  • Teens with an A grade may be able to skip high school, giving them the opportunity to complete university sooner
  • Genius teens have a high chance of skipping high school
  • Fun pop-up system
  • Gives you the chance to experience a feature of the High School Years expansion pack, even if you don’t have it

19. Genius Teens Can & Enroll to University Anytime

If your teen Sim has the Genius trait, they can now apply and enrol in university at any time! This includes the time right after they start high school. 

While there are cheats available, this mod allows your Genius teen to go through the nerve-racking process of applying and waiting for an acceptance letter before enrolling.

What’s Fun About Genius Teens Can Apply & Enroll To University:

  • Enroll in University as a teen if you sim has the Genius trait
  • Includes the entire process of application, waiting, and enrolling
  • allows your sim to drop out of high school when they have the Genius trait

18. University Costs More

If you want to make university more difficult, this mod is for you! Some players felt that the original price of classes (240) made the game too cheap, and certainly not realistic. 

This mod drastically alters the prices of classes, totaling 30720. Elective costs differ. Vampire Lore, for example, is the most expensive class (5200), followed by Gourmet Cooking (4000), and Piano, Violin, and other artistic classes, Handiness, and Flower Arranging are the least expensive (1500). 

You then repay the loan in the same manner as you would in real life, gradually but steadily! The page linked below contains information on how to change the prices yourself.

What’s Fun About University Costs More:

  • Make your game more financially challenging
  • University is far more realistic with these increased costs
  • Altered payback of loans, which is like real-life.

17. University Rejection Letters

This is an extensive mod that brings the concept of a University rejection letter into fruition! Without this mod, almost every sim will get accepted to university, no matter what.

Now school grades and certain traits and skills will impact upon whether your sim will get that exciting acceptance letter, or the feared rejection letter. Traits such as goofball, lazy, clumsy, childish, and hot-headed will increase your sims’ chances of getting rejected.

To increase your chances of being accepted, make sure their Charisma, Logic, and Writing skills are at least level 5. Don’t worry if you get rejected, though - you can always apply again after some time.

What’s Fun About University Rejection Letter:

  • Not all sims will receive an acceptance letter - they'll have to earn it!
  • Acceptance is contingent on grades, traits, and skills
  • New rejection letter pop up and moodlets
  • Can apply multiple times after getting a rejection letter

16. No University Housing Restrictions

This is one of the most helpful mods on the list! All restrictions on stoves and outdoor cooking have been lifted, allowing your Sims to cook for themselves rather than rely on the cafeteria. There will be no more starving university students!

  • No more restrictions on stoves or outdoor cooking
  • No longer need to rely on the cafeteria or quick/microwave meals

15. The Sheldon L. Cooper Program

The Sheldon L. Cooper Program is for young geniuses who want to progress from high school to university! Students will be eligible for three scholarships: one for Young Geniuses, one for Young Promises, and one for a special scholarship programme. 

Following your application, you will be required to attend a preparatory course. To meet the requirements, you must attend night school, which will be difficult. Along with your regular homework, you'll have special homework and tasks to complete, and once this course is completed, your application will be sent off.

With this mod, you'll be able to start in any career. However, the requirements panel will eventually inform you that you must have a specific degree in order to advance. Some careers will necessitate a specific degree from a specific university with honors, so keep that in mind! 

This adds a little difficulty to the otherwise simple promotion requirements, and it definitely adds realism to the game.

What’s Fun about Required Degree for Promotions:

  • At some level in all careers, a degree will be required
  • adds realism and challenge to the game
  • sometimes, a specific degree from a specific university will be required

13. Choose Your Roomate

Your sims' best friends can now be their roommates and attend university with this mod! It can also assist you in finding specific Roommates for your Residential Lots. 

To be able to choose University Roommates, you must first "prepare" them by enrolling them in a university. This can be accomplished by enrolling specific Sims from Households or by moving all Sims you want to be Roommates into a random Lot. 

Then, on the Mailbox, you’ll find two new Interactions: “Remove a Roommate” and “Choose a Roommate”. You can also remove a current Roommate you don’t like (the game will automatically replace them eventually).

To add your prepared sim as your Roommate, click “Choose a Roommate” and search in the List for the Sim. The List will show all game generated Uni Students as well as your Sims when you are living in University Housing.
