Admission Requirements



Southeastern considers many aspects of a student’s academic and personal background when deciding admission status. We require a GPA of at least 2.0, but students who have a lower GPA can submit a special appeal to be considered for admission. Academic scholarships reward higher GPAs, and the average student at SEU has a GPA above 3.0.

In addition to academics, we evaluate your character through a reference form, your fit with the university mission through your essay, and your desire to grow and learn. No applicant will be denied admission to Southeastern University on the basis of race, color, sex, nationality or ethnic origin. Southeastern does not discriminate against individuals with physical or mental disabilities who are otherwise eligible for admission to the university.
