i just downloaded BOINC from https://scienceunited.org/download.php and was automatically attached to Science United with the option to stop using Science United under the Tools menu.
Are you using another BOINC Account Manager. BAM! perhaps?

The Science United BOINC downloads are here
https://scienceunited.org/download.php

You can choose BOINC or BOINC + Virtual Box. If you choose BOINC only you can't run the few projects that require it.

I have been reading about problems getting out of SU. I'm trying it now and hope I don't have to reinstall the OS to fix it.
How did it go? You should be able to click "Stop using Science United" in the Tools menu of BOINC Manager" to do the job.

After you stop using Science United, log into a project website and adjust Computing preferences on your account page.
The next time BOINC Manager communicates with that project the timestamp on your adjustment should make them your Global preferences.

Thank you for your determination and information. This situation needs to be addressed and I'm sure it's on someone's to do list.

You were mislead by Science United's message.
The URL should be https://scienceunited.org/download.php
There's a link to that page on the front page of SU's website when you're logged in.

I think adding SU as a project on Android is the only option for now.

You should be able to use Science United as Account Manager in your current BOINC install.
Successful android account manager setup is documented here:

BOINC can be installed first. Then choose Science United as your account manager.
But you don't have to install BOINC first. You can download the Science United installer and it will do the rest for you.

In the BOINC Manager you can click Tools -> Add account manager and then choose Science United.

To automatically use Science United as your Account Manager, download and run the BOINC program from the link that appears on the main page when you're logged in:
Download it. There is no need to close your BOINC account.

This link from the main page (when you're not logged in) has some good info:
BOINC user? Read this.

After logging onto the site, download BOINC from here:
https://scienceunited.org/download.php

For Windows versions you will automatically be attached to Science United after install.
Maybe the same is true for Mac?

I can say that I'm getting work with Science United.
Maybe a few ideas.

On the Science and location preferences page, are the radio buttons set to Prefer or As needed for "Science areas" and Locations"?
https://scienceunited.org/su_prefs.php

On the Science projects page, has the "Account status" been established for the listed projects and are they "Allowed by prefs?"
Clicking on the project name allows you to choose to include or exclude.

Yes, Science United creates accounts for the various groups automatically.
From https://scienceunited.org/su_about.php
Science United is a new way to particate in BOINC. With Science United, computer owners volunteer for science areas rather than for specific projects. Science United assigns computers to appropriate projects; these may change over time.

In the Tools menu click "Stop using...".

It should (and will next release) show "Stop Using Science United".
