Yes! Applications are still being accepted for fall 2020 and we have extended our scholarship deadline to June 1 for the $1,000 to $3,000 Copper Dome Scholarship and $1,000 Residence Life Leadership Award. You can apply online with $0 application fee for summer/fall 2020 undergraduate domestic freshman and transfer students.
Admission will be based on the best information you can provide. Acceptable proof of grades includes an official high school transcript with 6th or 7th semester GPA or a self-reported GPA. We will ask you to submit a final high school transcript upon graduation, and when your school is able to process the request. Southeast will not rescind admission of fall 2020 students whose final cumulative grade point average falls below a normally acceptable level. Support services will be offered to students requesting additional academic guidance and support.
Southeast does not use class rank for admissions or scholarship consideration.
Southeast has implemented test optional admission criteria for 2020 high school graduates. View our freshman admission guidelines.
