Policies included on this page help students understand the responsibilities that come with financial aid and billing. If you have questions about any financial aid issue, contact sfs@semo.edu.

Remove the financial barriers to a high-quality college education: that’s what we do.

A college degree is a big investment but an important one. The ins and outs of financing that degree should not get in the way of earning it. Our financial aid experts, student service specialists and cashiers, form a single office aimed at answering any billing or financial aid questions you may have.

Applying for Aid

Cost should not be the factor that stands between you and success at Southeast. We know your education and your future are top priorities, and we’re committed to doing whatever it takes to make a quality education financially possible.


Scholarships are a great way to pay for college without incurring debt. They're a form of financial aid that does not require repayment. Think of it as an investment in you.


Parents provide invaluable support to their students and have a vested interest in their educational success. Continue to play an active role by providing guidance and support, but understanding college finances is a part of your student’s educational process. Encourage your student to be proactive in learning about their finances, budget, and the financial aid process.

Faculty & Staff Resources

While “student” may be in the name of our office, we’re here to offer just as much support to faculty and staff. Whether you’re helping a student or need information on collecting money, we’re here to help.
