We’re excited about your interest in enrolling at Southeast.

Yes, there is a process. But, it doesn’t need to be overwhelming and it doesn’t need to intimidate you. Let’s do this.

The requirements for admission vary depending on how you plan to enter Southeast. We’ll need to take into consideration where you’re coming from, how much prior education you’ve completed, and what type of degree or program you may want to earn.

Both past academic performance and the demonstration of academic promise are taken into consideration for admission to Southeast. Decisions are made without regard to race, color, creed, gender, disability or national origin.

How will you apply?

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Each section below will help outline the specific admissions requirements you’ll need to meet to start your life as a Redhawk.

First-Time Freshman

You are a first-time freshman if you are attending college for the first time. Typically, you may be a high school junior or senior planning to attend Southeast in the summer or fall after graduation.

You are a transfer student if you have completed coursework from a degree-granting program at an accredited U.S. Department of Education-recognized institution after graduating from high school.

The diversity of our student body is a valued asset at Southeast. You are considered an international student if you need an F-1 student visa or have another type of temporary, non-immigrant visa.
