My Southeast (at www.semo.edu/mySoutheast/) provides you with online access to your Southeast student record, including your
class schedule and account information. This is also where you will go to see your
grade in the course once the semester ends.
Once you are registered for a course, you may activate your Southeast Key through
My Southeast. Enter your student ID and password. (Initially, your password is your
birth month and day, e.g. your birthday is April 6, your password is 0406.) Once your
Southeast Key is activated, you will use this to access your Web course. IMPORTANT:
Your Southeast Key is your Southeast e-mail address and this will be used by your
instructors to communicate with you throughout the semester.
We offer a self-assessment questionnaire online at http://online.semo.edu/. Select the “Is Online Right for Me?” on the left side. It will help you figure out
if you will be successful in an online classroom.
We have tried to answer many of the questions that students and prospective school employers have typically asked over the last several years.

What types of teaching certificates covered by the program?

The Academic contract may include subject matter courses in addition to pedagogy. This program has a stronger field experience component then the temporary certification. This certification requires a single subject matter Missouri Content Exam.
Temporary Authorization Certificate (TAC) is a valid one year certificate in Missouri. The TAC is DESE's Program and to apply for certification an Application for Temporary Certificate must be submitted online on DESE's website.
