Can my student afford to attend Southeastern?As a public university, our costs are surprisingly affordable. For Fall 2013 in–state students pay only $$2,125.80 for 12 credit hours. Estimate $2,500 for room and board, plus $500 for books, and you have a total that keeps Southeastern competitive. Nonresidents of Oklahoma may take advantage of nonresident tuition waivers. First-time students receive a 100 percent nonresident tuition waiver for the first two semesters. They may continue to renew the waivers based on academic performance: click here for more information Back to Top
Can my student qualify for Financial Aid?Most students need a little help paying for their education. In fact, nearly 80 percent of Southeastern students receive some sort of aid-whether a scholarship, federal grant, student loan or a combination of all three. The key to securing financial aid is to apply as early as possible. Our Guide to Scholarships is available online, or the Office of Admissions and Recruitment will be happy to mail you a copy (insert link to Request More Information http://www.se.edu/future-students/request-information/) Southeastern uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the awarding of grants and student loans.

Will my student get lost in a sea of faces in class?With approximately 4,000 students, Southeastern is a small school guided by a big vision. We work with each and every student to tap promise and develop potential. Our student-faculty ratio of 20:1 means that your student will connect with professors and will have every opportunity to ask questions, brainstorm and, if necessary, get help. Back to Top
What services are there to help my student succeed academically?The first year on any college campus can be intimidating. At Southeastern, we make sure students get off to a solid start. Our Academic Advising and Outreach Center serves as information central. An advisor helps each student:
- Choose courses and a major to match goals and talents.
- Decide upon a realistic course load that accommodates work, study and play, while ensuring that graduation occurs on time.
- Identify the best ways to address special challenges – everything from a learning disability to a gap in skills.
- Find the right clubs and organizations to complement interests.
