Stay close, go far: you'll do that here.

You can earn your degree without leaving your hometown with Southeast's regional campuses. With locations in Kennett, Sikeston, and Poplar Bluff, you can take courses that will ultimately apply toward a degree at the main campus in Cape Girardeau or earn your degree completely locally.

Our Locations

  • Kennett Campus

    The Kennett campus has been serving the community for more than 20 years. It evolved from a statewide initiative to deliver access to higher education. The city and University partnered to create the campus that has helped thousands of students earn a degree and transform their futures.
  • Sikeston Campus

    The Sikeston campus mixes traditional classroom space with experiential learning labs like the Vegetable Demonstration Garden, a Center Pivot Irrigation System, and expansion of the Autism Center for Diagnosis and Treatment.
  • Poplar Bluff Location

    Southeast partners with Three Rivers College to offer courses at its Poplar Bluff location. Students can take courses that tranfer to Southeast often with articulation agreements between the institutions to make it simpler for students or in some cases, pursue their degree on location.

Investing In You

Southeast is a big believer in access to education. In addition to location based options to make pursuing a degree more convenient, we also offer programs to help you afford the education you want.

Southeast A+

The Southeast A+ scholarship at the regional campuses covers incidental, general, technology, and maintenance fees for lower level course work after your federal and state need-based grants or other awards have been applied, so you get the maximum support for your education.

Copper Dome Scholarship

Southeast developed a scholarship program in line with its commitment to provide high-quality education at an affordable price. Students can qualify for scholarships based on ACT or only their GPA. And, 70 percent of students are eligible to receive a scholarship in the program. Plus, the scholarships grow in value each year renewed!

Will To Do Award

What if we told you there was a chance to pay $0 in tuition and general fees. If it sounds too good to be true, it isn't! Southeast's Will to Do Award offers just that for eligible students.

Become a Redhawk.

Do more than dream about the future. Take the first steps to make it all happen.

    Personal Support

    Not everyone thrives in a classroom with hundreds of other students. At the regional campus, you can expect small classes, personal attention from your professor, and academic advisors on location who know you.
