We know this past year has been a little different to say the least. Families are still weighing their college options, and students are still taking the SAT/ACT. We want to increase your opportunity to go to college. That's why we're extending our scholarship deadline for Copper Dome and Residence Life Leadership until June 1! Eligible students can receive up to $4,000 when these two awards are stacked. And, even if you've applied to SEMO, we'll look at your test scores through June 2021, meaning you may have the chance to increase the scholarship offer that's already been made. College is an important decision. And, this year, we could all use a little more time to focus on important things.Learn More

At Southeast, we know the value of a college education. And, we think everyone should be able to afford that value. It’s the reason we designed a scholarship program where 70% of our students are eligible. It’s why we don’t have an application fee. It’s why we’re test optional. It’s why we created our Will To Do Award, so eligible Pell students would pay $0 in tuition and fees.
And, if you’re thinking that all sounds too good to be true, Southeast is living proof that high quality doesn’t have to mean high cost. While our tuition is lower than the national average, you’ll find we’re still one of Missouri’s most accredited institutions.
That quality combined with abundant real-world learning opportunities mean you start building your resume almost as soon as you set foot on campus and you’re career-ready when you leave campus. SEMO doesn’t want to just be affordable or just be high quality. We want to be a smart investment, so you launch an extraordinary career and can excel on day one.
We give everything we’ve got and earn everything we get. Because progress isn’t promised to anybody. It will be made by those with the courage to question. The hunger to know. And the will to do.
