New first-time entering freshmen are required to attend an advisement and enrollment clinic which is designed to make the transition to college life as easy as possible. This clinic is for everyone: resident, commuter, and non-traditional students. Students will meet one-on-one with an academic advisor, enroll in classes, connect with faculty and other students, learn about student services and campus life, and make Southeastern feel more like home before classes begin. Several clinic dates are available for new freshmen students beginning in a fall semester but only one clinic is available for a spring semester. Clinic dates and contact information will be listed in the Schedule of Classes for each semester.
Southeastern recommends that all first-time freshmen enroll in a two hour orientation course, ORIE 1002 COLLEGE SUCCESS. This course is designed to provide an opportunity for freshmen to learn, practice, and adopt specific strategies to support their success in college. Class time is spent in a variety of activities, including lectures, exercises, and group discussions of issues relevant to student success. This course is mandatory for students enrolled in remedial courses and for students with an undecided major.
Transfer Student Information Session
An orientation session especially for enrolled transfer students is scheduled at the beginning of each fall and spring semester. All transfer students are encouraged to attend this session to make the transition to Southeastern as easy as possible. Information concerning clinic dates and contact information can be found in the Schedule of Classes.
